    Crash Course in Coils please

    I've tried to run a search but obviously when I type in anything to do with coils I end up with pretty much every post ever written.

    What difference do the varying sizes make to the over all vape, battery life etc??

    Thanks in advance.

    Found this...
    Undestanding resistances, LR and HV
    Does it sum it up well enough?

    Just get a few different coils and see what you like.

    The main thing is what resistance you like to vape at. It doesn't matter quite so much with a regulated mod but generally speaking you would want to be below 1 ohm for DL and over 1 ohm for MTL vaping.

    The diameter of the coil can also affect how it vapes. Too small and it might be too spitty and fierce (depends on airflow too), too big and it may take too long to get up to temperature or cause shorting or other problems depending on what device you are using. Mostly, 2.5mm or 3.0mm works well.

    Try a few different things and see what works for you.

    No, don't use that chart. It was devised when most people used cartos and clearomisers. The devices, the coils, the airflow are all different now. You have to deal with the new devices more on a case-by-case basis. The stuff about ohms law and the power equation are still relevant though, but mainly for mechs, working out power usage and battery safety.

    Sticky about types of wire: Wires explained !

    And in fact the other important sticky in that section:
