    So which kills batteries quicker?

    Im trying to maintain battery life now days as a priority.

    At the moment, I am running a 1.2 ohm coil @ 4.1V. So this is 14W but at a Provari busting 3.41667A.

    If I run a 2 ohm coil @ 5.3V its still 14W but only 2.65A.

    Assuming 700mah IMRs, will battery life be different?
    Rate of discharge as well as long term cell life.

    My understanding the higher amp draw kills em quicker for discharge as well as overall life... The overall may be wrong though..

    i think your multimeter battery is flat

    This is what I'm guessing too.
    1.1-1.2 ohms have rendered 18350s useless to me.

    Never played down this far much though.

    My low ohm setups def draw from te battery quicker, im only guessing that drawing from em harder will shorten overall battery life... Sure supersports prob woukd know

    Within reason, and this is on the chart, fewer amps = > battery life.

    The wire gauge is going to have a big effect. Thin wire needs less current to make it glow..

    Are we talking on the provari?


    I always found a lower Ω (and so lower V) setting outlasted an equivalent powered higher Ω one. I think this is down to the cost of boosting + if you are on 5V with the prov, there is more current flowing through the batteries than there is through the atty, if you are on 3V, it’s the other way around - I think...

    I think we need a Stoney reply to this thread
    I thought that the provari boosted the voltage by drawing more current & converting it into volts, so I don't see how you would be extending battery life using the same watts with a different mix of volts & amps.
