  1. My first 1.5 ohm coil

    by , 03-22-2015 at 02:12 PM
    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.

    Vaping has only good and hope to offer to the smoker still caught in addiction and hope to the families that have lost loved ones to tobacco related diseases and hope to the ones who watch helplessly as loved ones continue to slowly kill themselves on cigarettes. Vaping offers redemption from smoking addiction if left unchecked as it spreads through our ...
