  1. Part Deux - For the advanced education of mech and RBA users...

    by , 08-05-2014 at 04:02 AM
    I've exceeded the 10K character limit in part one... so, here's part deux!

    > 2-17-14 Addendum: A coil calculator, developed by ECF member Dampmaskin and called "Steam Engine" (previously called "vape calc") has become available.
    It includes not only an ohms law calculator, but a coil wrap estimator that includes parameters like ID, target resistance, leg or "tail" length and variable coil counts... and a battery drain calculator as well. ...

  2. Dial / digital calipers... what, you don't have any?

    by , 04-29-2014 at 06:04 PM
    For a long time now, we've seen threads -

    "What size are the o-rings on a fill in the blank atomizer?" or,
    "What size are the magnets on a fill in the blank mod?"... or the broadest of inquiries,
    "I need to measure anything you can think of that might need accurate measuring... how can I do that?"

    More often than not, if these inquiries even get a response... it's from a member who owns both the device in question, and a dial ...
  3. Ohm's Law... and common vaping questions.

    So many questions, so much misinformation - and all it will take to clear up at least 80% of both... is a bit of knowledge.

    This isn't going to be a class in all things Ohm's Law, so much as a few things you need to know about resistance and power... so that both your vape and your safety is well considered. First... lets open up a very easy to use, uncluttered with BS, on-line Ohm's Law calculator, or 'OLC'. Got it? Good.

    Most common misconceptions I run into are: ...

  4. Rebuildable Atomizers - What is an RBA?

    by , 03-16-2014 at 01:20 AM
    RBA, RDA, RTA... oh my! For those folks that are new (and semi-new) to RBAs, what are they and how do they work?

    I could delve into the history of the RBA, but I imagine that most of my "gentle readers" don't really care about history - rather a bit of definition for what is available now. I'll also toss in a few bits of editorial commentary for the reader to ponder.

    I apologize if I don't mention "your" atomizer. In the scope of this short article, ...

  5. micro coils - Kanthal "voodoo" - why coils don't short out

    It is not voodoo, or related to internal combustion engines - it's the way the wire is designed - and this "feature" of Kanthal has been well known since before you or I were born... and just one of the qualities that make it so common and useful.

    When heated, Kanthal wire (iron-chromium-aluminum) ...
