    Provari mini how low can they go?

    Just wondering if anyone knew its minimum resistance tolerance, I build a lot with SS nowadays

    Thx

    1.3 ohm from memory

    1.5 ohm is the sweet spot, .9 is as low as low as they go.

    Guessing it's the same electronics in the full size?

    Warning ... Potential Mind Explosion to follow ...

    OK with vaping ( and forums, and vendors, and anyone else ) the last few years we have been "Trained " to think of things in terms of Resistance and Wattage, and the only thought to Amps is when we are sub-ohming and pushing a battery to its limits.
    So as a result of this we logically conclude vaping is all about resistance... but electronics and regulation ( if you are talking safety) is all about AMPS...
    So imagine this, if you only measure/calculate watts ( as most do ) then you can fit really low resistances and melt shyte and burn the crap out of liquid and melt insulators and make batteries explode
    Consider 100Watts .. now at 0.2 ohms thats 22Amps ... but at 2.0 ohms its only a tad over 7 ... same power, much different Amp draw (of course you are talking big Voltages, over 14V, to drive the 2.0 Ohm that high)
    But Provari coming from an older take on things is actually CURRENT LIMITED , yes folks it will only deliver so many AMPS ... V1 Provari 2.5A ... V2 3.5A ... P3 currently 5.5A

    So when using a Provari you kinda have to mindshift a little , because its not about the mindblowing Watts and uber low resistances , its about creating a super stable high frequency output( up to 800Hz I believe?) with filtering to provide a very flat output , whereas other PWM's some as low as 33Hz can be sending huge volt spikes into the coil as they oscillate.
    This is why on a Provari (p1 to P2.5)you don't set the watts , you control the VOLTAGE at a set AMP rate You are controlling an actual measurable factor rather than relying on an algorithm ( calculating Watts)
    SO yeah anyway I digress
    P1 1.3 Ohm cutoff
    P2 and up 0.9
    P3 0.5 (P3 also has a wattage algorithm where it displays the watts but still controls Voltage )


    Provari is, and always has been, about a safe performing vape to provide an alternative for smoking... it hasn't strapped on a pair of oversized testicles and concentrated on the cool factor of "Cloudz Bra' " at the expense of that ...

    Sweet it's just hard to build higher resistance on SS316L that's all. Perhaps I get some 32G wire

    I'm a bit worried with the 0.9 cut off, this is with a heap of wire (kept real close) and then too being stuff I pulled out of a Nautilius BVC head... I know I'm desperate for thin high resistance wire.

    The people at Many Cloud Vapin'
    have been working on the Soyuz IV Style extension

    Imagine your mini on top of the bottom section, (no flames).
    With four 350's in parallel for that extra longevity.
    Someone Photo Shop this for us

    Oops "How low" not how long ... doh
    3.5 amp limit, if your mini thinks your battery is up to it.
    Try 1.4 ohms so you DNA200 can still limit it.
