  1. The practical applications of heat flux, wire gauge, parallel wire count & net resistance

    by , 03-18-2015 at 06:24 PM
    The practical applications of heat flux, wire gauge, parallel wire count & net resistance as they relate to... the simplicity of a mech mod vs. the independent wattage control of regulated mod.

    In simpler terms... the Ohm's law limitations of mechs vs. the ability to "force" wattage with an APV... as it effects user vaping performance / satisfaction.

    I'll keep this relatively short. If you've read the Steam Engine User Guides - parts
    1 and 2... then
    ...

  2. Sub-Ohm... what's the point?

    A few days ago, this post popped up... with my answer to follow.

    Regardless of the type of coil I use and its resistance, I seem usually prefer 8w give or take. If I go much higher, I lose all flavor and it just tastes burnt. So Why would I enjoy sub ohm at 20, 30, 50 or 100w?

    If I give sub ohm, high wattage a try, may I need to change the liquid I prefer using?

  3. Testing tube mech mods/RBAs for conductivity

    by , 01-27-2015 at 03:05 AM
    First... you need a digital multi-meter (DMM). How much you choose to spend is entirely at your budgetary discretion.

    A word of caution before we begin. Make sure that your meter is set correctly before any test. If you forget to switch from resistance to voltage and apply live voltage, you will pop the fuse in the meter... and unless a spare came with the meter, I doubt you'll have a back-up.

    The terms conductivity and continuity I tend to use interchangeably, as they ...

  4. Steam Engine: From basic use to advanced features... Part Deux!!!

    Heat Flux... and you.

    Lets look at perhaps the most ignored, misused and/or misunderstood option in SE... and the reason I wrote all this in the first place. "Heat Flux" (HF).

    Heat flux (HF) is a measurement of radiant heat our resistance wire coil generates, measured in milliwatts per millimeter squared, or mW/mm2.
    Dampmaskin has provided, along with actual numeric values, a color code range that runs from a cold blue to a flaming hot, deep red... ...

    This is going long... so get comfortable, and I'll try and make it as painless as possible.

    (Hint! If you know all there is to know 'bout SE, save for the "heat flux" / "heat capacity" part... go directly to SE part 2 - Heat Flux... and you.)

    Lately... I find myself, far too frequently, explaining a particular aspect of Steam Engine - the variable of "heat flux" - to an ever expanding number of vapists, with questions about wire gauge, ...
