    HC Dual Coil 2.0ohm don't work on Ego batteriess?

    Hi, I received my order this week. Shipping was fast and everything well packed :-) But unfortunately the DC LR cartos don't work on my Ego batteries :-(

    I bought 2 boxes, black and SS and all had the HC logo. I wasted a lot of juice on 4 of them (2 from each box). Tried everything and next to no vapour compared to that from the Boge LR 2.00ohm cartos. Tried on fully charged 650ohm and 1000ohm passthrough.

    Then I just gave up as I didn't want to ruin my batteries. I don't know if they are all faulty or just don't work on Egos. If this is the case then you shouldn't advertise them as being suitable for the Ego.

    LOL sorry that my first post here is a whinge but just had to get it off my chest. I'll just stick with the Boges for now as I've been really happy with them.

    I also ordered a box of SS CE2s to try but unfortunately ordered the small ones by mistake - my fault. They do work OK but will still be sticking with the Boges, just can't beat them for value and consistency I think...

    So, basically what I'm saying is that maybe these dual coils shouldn't be advertised as being compatible with the Ego? Thanks.

    Yeah I had this exact same problem last week.

    Basically you want 1.5ohm Dual Coils (2ohm dc has 2 x 4ohm coils so needs more voltage to get up to power)

    See my posts for more info...

    How they can claim a 2ohm dual coil is Low Resistance I have no idea...

    Thanks rysup, yeah I did read those posts AFTER I received them and was trying to work out the problem. My reasoning for going with the 2ohm ones was because I read that the 2ohm single coil boges were better on the ego than 1.5ohms. Well, that's the reasoning from a person that doesn't know much about ohms, resistance, volts and watts!

    I've already spent a bit on ego batteries, nic, pg, vg and flavours and don't want to buy a higher volt pv just yet. LOL, but I WILL...

    Oh BTW, my next purchase was going to be the new ego vv passthrough but it will only go to 4.2v so I suppose that still won't do the trick? Don't know if I'd even risk buying more dual coils though, even at lower ohms as still could have quality control issues...

    There certainly is a learning curve when you first start out

    If you want some 1.5ohm dualies locally there are a few different mobs here that sell 'em.

    The 4.2v from that passthrough "might" do the trick yer.. just don't buy anymore till you confirm it for yourself. If you're wanting to grab some.. Grab the 1.5ohm DC's because you'll be able to use them on all of the devices, including the 4.2v PT.

    I'm not too sure if it will actually get the full power of 4.2v with LR cartos... I read somewhere on ecf (http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/for...ed-review.html) that the boosters don't use the full extent of the voltage with low resistance stuff...

    More info here too. http://artisanvaping.com/?page_id=56
    In addition, should you choose to use LR atomizers with the Ego Booster, you will
    find that the maximum output of the battery will limit out at a much lower voltage
    setting. The net effect is that the adjustment range of the knob (i.e. the range of knob
    adjustment for which you notice a change in the vapor output) will be reduced. For
    instance, we found that with 1.5 ohm LR atties there really is only a noticeable change in
    vapor production over the lower 1/2 to 1/3 of the knob adjustment range, compared to
    standard resistance atties which can use the entire adjustment range.

    However, if you plug the Ego Booster into a mod with an IMR battery which can handle
    the higher current, then you should be able to adjust the output voltage over a much
    greater range. The limiting factor under these conditions would be the eGo Booster’s
    maximum current output, which is 3A. If you try to draw more current than 3A out of the
    Ego Booster, the current limiting will kick in and the output voltage will stay constant.

    But that's not the booster that he is talking about. It's a new product from HC, which is a VV Passthrough.. so I am unsure how it will function to be honest. I wouldn't mind grabbing one of them myself, to have a play with.

    $50 says it suffers the same problem with LR stuff. You need almost 3amps to drive a 1.5ohm dc at 4.2v... 2ohm+ stuff should be ok though.

    Here's the GV thread on this thing (piper-d) with some more comments http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/for...ct-photos.html

    Yes, this is my second go at it but I didn't really get off the ciggas last time I tried ecigs about 1.5 years ago. I've been chain smoking for 40 years and I'm amazed I'm still alive! :-) Not even any real health problems (that I know of) just feel much older than I should.

    No, I'm just going to stick with what works for now - Boge 510LR 2.0ohm. I've probably halved my tobacco intake at the moment and I'm really enjoying the ecigs this time. Most importantly I've learned how to avoid the burnt taste :-) I really think it's going to work this time. I'm not too concerned how long it takes as I'm going to have to get a bit more organised and prepared for the time when I'm only using ecigs.
