    Sub Ohm coils, how low is too low?

    I've just built a dual coil set-up in a Madz Modz Reactor dripping atty.

    3 wraps of 30 AWG on each wick using 2mm Ekowool and it has come out at .3 ohm.

    Just how low is too low a low ohm coil or dual coil?

    I have it on an Nzonic in 18500 mode.

    Or should I just shut up and enjoy it until it blows?

    .3 is pretty low but hopefully no one wants/needs to go lower haha. On a fresh battery a .3 coil is running at 58.7w and 14A. The amps is the problem as if your battery is not upto it, it could potentially fail catastrophically. Even if it doesn't fail you will be ruining its life span.

    Thats about 6v I think?, more coils equals more vapor I've found but I'm crap on some parts, I'm using a Paps 18650 with a Kayfun Lite with three lengths of 2mm silica with 28g, 3/4 wraps running at .09 Ohm, never gotten down as low as you just did, lowest I went was .06, and my paranoid nature with batteries made me stop, one of the more knowledgeable will be along shortly.

    Did a little experiment, chucked a 2 Cent Fuse Lite in, it kept tripping. No fuse, kept going (but only held the button it in for about 2-3 secs)

    Time for a rebuild. Fiddly little bastards these attys are. Need glasses.

    Cheers Timmy.

    or about $3 off ebay. Being able to magnify certainly helps on the smaller builds.
