    Correct. The OP said they had VV/VW. I have the ProVari and it is only VV.

    Wattage is really a calculation done with resistance and volts. It's basically like driving an automatic car instead of a stick shift. Your coil resistance and volts combine to make watts. Once you set a device to the watts you want, it doesn't matter what your coils resistance is. The device will adjust the voltage it puts out to create the wattage you set it to. To save on power with a device capable of variable watts, I would adjust the watts to taste, and then get a coil with lower resistance. Your device will then adjust the volts it puts out to adjust for the lower resistance of your coil and you'll get longer battery life.

    Look at VW mode like an automatic transmission and VV like a stick shift. Oh...and Google Ohms Law...

    As to battery life, ultimately the most satisfying solution is having multiple batteries and not worrying about it.

    I'm now running my setup at 2.4ohms with 8.5 wattage and 4.0 volts and it seems to be perfect... Thank you guys! The safe vaping chart helped me out a lot!

    My new tank came with a handy chart (Hypertank...amaaaaazing)

    Resistance/Voltage

    1.7-1.9ohms / 3.1v-3.4v
    2.1-2.3ohms/3.5-3.8v
    2.4-2.6ohms/3.9-4.2v
    2.6-3.0ohms/4.3-4.7v

    I use 2.5 attomizers and usually have my voltage between 3.8 and 4.0 on all of my mods.

    My name is Jess, and I'm a magpie...Oh Shiny!
    I took a one way Nicoticket to ReoVille with my ProVari like an MVP!

    I'm vaping a Taifun GT at 1.4 ohms right now at 4.5 volts for 14.5 watts.

    My 700 mAh battery will last an hour and a half or so...
