    Default new set up, not impressed!

    So, I buy a mechanical mod put a fully charged 350 battery in, attach a low res cart and take a draw.
    My battered 650 ego on half a charge performed alot better!
    I thought a mod would have been better?

    What did you purchase exactly?

    Mmmm, Cartos huh?
    That could be an issue.

    As you have taken the plunge, we need to fix you up.

    Can you test the output with a meter? Can you check the resistance of the carto? If these are normal, then some investigation is in order.

    A 2.0 ohm carto on a fresh battery should be kicking out decent vapour.

    There are lots of possible problem points here. The drawback of the eGo you mentioned is that it is regulated to 3.2v or so. By the same token, that regulation means that you get that same voltage whether full or half charged. The same cannot be said for a mechanical. Testing under load is the best way to figure out what's going on. I'd start with the battery. Is is a high drain battery? If not, you may see it drop pretty drastically under load. The next step is to make sure all of the threaded connections on the body of the mechanical are good and clean.

    You should definitely get a better experience with the mechanical, at least with a fully charged battery.

    That's a standard res carto. LR would be 1.5- 2.0 ohms. On my Mech Mod firing at 3.7 volts I use a 1.7 ohms.

    A good high quality battery can make all the difference in the world in a mech. I know Efest has its fans, but I'll never buy another one. I suggest getting an AW 18350 IMR, I think you'll see a big difference.

    I'll also agree with Vapoor eyes on the carto resistance.

    I think I will have to try different batterie, hope it helps.
    As for cartos I'm stumped I've tried 3 new ones, each one saying low on the wrapping yet showing 2.2 and two at 2.3 ohms.

    These are the ones I use.
    Below Resurrector aka SmokTech 1.7 XL (1.8 ml) single coil at 3.7 volts.

    The guy at my local shop (they only sell Efests obv) tried to tell me "In all the tests the Efest's outperformed the AW's", i just nodded my head rather than saying 'well my tests disagree'.

    Dont get me wrong the efests are fine, but the AWs perform better/last longer for me.
