    Default Ohm meter question

    Hi,
    I am new to mechanical modding, I have placed an order for a Svoemesto extended kit and Kayfun atomiser plus the ohm meter below.

    my question is, is this meter sufficient, I know it will read ohm,s and after watching a video review, I believe it will give an adnormal reading if there is a short, is this ok or should I purchase a multi meter too?

    (I have read the safety sections concerning protected batteries etc)

    This looks similar to the one I use, except mine is battery powered rather than USB powered. Should be fine ...

    The Nivel chip in the Semovar is pretty comprehensive... so although I'd always recommend a DMM for any sub-ohm vaping, for a Kayfun, it probably will not be necessary. I have yet to build below 1.4Ω with any Kayfun or clone and usually run at 1.7-1.8Ω.

    A flat top ohm meter, if for no other reason than it makes a nice build platform, is always good to have around.

    Here's a link to a pdf owners manual, in English... that you may find useful.

    The Ohm meter we have is either battery or USB powered.
