    The impedance (resistance) ohms. Starting out, go 1.8ohms.

    pretty sure the starter kit came with 1.8,

    what the likely difference in changing to 1.5 or 0.8

    im will need to buy more soon and am curious what the difference to vaping would be

    as the coils resistance gets lower Guvna , the power will be greater on an unregulated mod ( or the same voltage )
    "Normal vaping , say with an ego and clearo set-up is usually around the 2.5 or 1.8 Ohm level ... 1.5 will give you a bit more kick ... and 0,8 will rip your throat out

    You need to tailor the coils you use to the power of the device or your settings

    1.8ohms is a good place to be with the batteries you have. Lower impedance will make your batteries work harder.

    Just bought a Sigelei 30W as my first real APV, not for the high watts, but because I wanted a nice looking and reasonably priced VW mod with a good sized battery (18650). Been vaping 1.8 ohms / 10W, which tends to lead to about 3.6-.8 genuine volts according to the display. A beautiful rich and flavourful vape with a silo tank - any higher my throat/lungs start to feel overwhelmed! Based on this chart, I wonder why anyone would want to go up to 30W!?

    Rebuildables... Lower watts are fine with clearos, no problem. Start throwing some lower guage wire in there and you need the power to get it hot...

    That chart was useful when I first started vaping (mini protanks and ego batteries). I believe all this fancy air flow stuff allows you to push well into the red zone of this chart - for example I find I need to go between 12-15 watts on the nautilus and at least 25 watts when using RDAs. But I guess it can be taken as a guide and adjusted to suit your taste.

    As for the coils, will an emow take a 0.8 ohm coil? I thought most starter batteries cut off at around 1.2 ohm.
