    Probably 3.4 volts. Do you have a multi meter handy?

    Understand and thats fine. A multimeter is used to test electrical circuits and electronic components. It's a very handy tool for a vaper to own. You can get a cheap one for vaping purposes from Harbor Freight, Sears,WalMart etc.
    I don't remember exactly if unregulated ego output 3.4 or 3.3 volts. I'm sure someone will chime in soon with the correct answer.

    Welcome to ECF OptimusPrimerib.

    mAh is mili amp hours. That is a way of stating how much energy there is in the battery. So yours, 900 mAh, will put out 900 mili amps for one hour, or 1,800 mA for 1/2 hour, or 450 mA for 2 hours.

    How many volts it puts out is another thing again. The battery inside is likely a lithium ion cell that charges to about 4.2 volts and dicharges to about 3.3 volts. There is likely regulation circuitry that stabilizes the output voltage. If you tell us what the battery called and who makes it someone will probably be able to tell you the voltage it outputs.

    ETA: I missed that it's an eGo . I think it's either around 3.3 as gimmieshelter said or around 3.7 if it's a knock off Joye. Who makes it will likely tell the tale.

    Ego's can be 3.4 or 3.7v for the unregulated (I think) and between 3.3 to 4.8 for the VV.

    Do you happen to know the model of ego - or can you provide a link where you got it from? If not, can you tell us if there is any dial on the bottom, what color the button is or if it has a brand on it please?

    Hi

    Joyetech standard eGos fire at 3.3v. Some generic eGo fire at that, but many (perhaps most) fire at 3.7v. If the battery is unregulated, it will come off of the charger at 4.2v, then the voltage will go down as the battery discharges.

    Without a multi meter or manufacturer disclosure I don't think there's any way to tell what the voltage of an eGo is. However, we aren't looking at a very wide range, so I'd say just pretend it's 3.7v and use that to base you resistance choices on. (Even if unregulated, the battery won't fire 4.2v under load and drops to 3.7v pretty quickly)
