    Just messin' and now wondering, how many ohm?

    (Mods please move if posted in wrong section)So I was just fiddling with the coil master, made two dual parallel coils(think thats the correct term for these, please correct if wrong) and them joined them together. So to be clear, its four positive legs in the centre and two lots of two negative legs on the ends. So all up four basic coils all 26G kathal, 5/6 wraps, & 2.5mm ID.

    I have no idea if this setup will work well and I dont care if it doesnt, its more just about honing my coil building skills and testing my math.

    I've made two of these and was hoping to finish with a quad dual parallel coil setup(correct if wrong terminology) at around the 0.25 ohm range. The problem is I dont have an ohm meter, and at the minute I have no spare rba heads to fix these coils to so cant use the atty ohm meter either.

    Though it might be fun to get you guys to guesstimate the final ohm reading of this coil setup, and also of two of these both connected to a three poster, probably a zenith v2.5 clone sitting on a stingray clad HE4. Also maybe what the end vape might be like, ie flavour vs cloud production.

    If I dont blow myself up, I'll post the final readings and my personal findings sometime next week when I get around to installing them

    I would say your coil building is already honed by the looks of that.

    With this kinda fancy coil i wont be firing it on a mech mod.
    Different story if you know the reading of the coil.
    Safer firing it on a vw/vv mod

    Yep your estimate would be about correct, halve it for two of these in parallel, would be too low IMO....

    coil like that will take forever to heat up and cooldown, worse if you will be running 2 of them.

    no idea on the ohm reading i could knock one up tonight but i dont think i have an atty with big enough post holes

    ~0.175Ω

    Each coil ~0.7Ω and you have 4 in parallel.

    Havent had a chance to test the resistance yet, but from what you've quoted, I guess running a pair of these will definately be out of the question..

    Cheers!

    Most of the coils Ive made and are using take a while to heat up, I really dont mind, it gives me an extra few seconds to giddy up my lungs for the mass amount of vapour they're about to inhale

    Did you end up making one to test?

    A RDA base with whackin' great holes for big fat wires in the posts, might be useful here to test the resistance.
    IGO-Ws are going cheap, but the post holes may be to small.

    So I got this coil installed in a Zenith V2.5. I only had to flatten the wires a little with the pliers to get them to slide into the post slots without any trouble at all. Ohm reading initially was .16 but after firing it a few times moved to .18 I did have the thought though, that by bending the coils away from each other, that I could get more cotton into them and thus more juice to where it was needed. Surprisingly, it didnt take long to fire up as I first thought it would, infact it fired nearly instantly. Here are some pics and a short vid to show how much vapour this throws.
