My first coil has been working quite well. I have a 3.7 volt efest battery and I'm using 28-gauge kanthal wire wrapping it at 2mm.
I did 8 turns and it initially came out at 1.7 ohms, but after a few times firing it, I checked my posts, which were loose. After tightening them down, not too tight to avoid breaking the kanthal, the coil started reading 1.5 ohms. That's where she's stayed for the last several days of vaping.
