    Default Ohms & Voltage

    What's the point of using different ohm coils and having the ability to change the voltage? What does changing the voltage do? What does changing the ohms do?

    All depends on what device you are useing ! Changing ohm realy only applys to mech mods. I would say on a vv vw device ohm do not realy matter as you are limited the the amp out put of your device

    On a mech lower ohms gets more power to the coil thus making it hotter . Vv vw u just crank up the power with a touch of a botton but u can only hit 15watts. On a mech with good battery's you can go up to 88 watts I stay in the 40watt range

    I don't think you received the answer you wanted and nor did I. The answers all had watts involved.

    I just wonder!!!!

    The voltage changes the wattage look at the ecig safe power chart it will exsplain it all .changing the volts higher ups the power makes the vape warmer and produces more vaper with changing the ohms lower you do not have to go as high with your voltage higher omhs needs more voltage more power read about ohm law !

    And I do hope that helped in any way I spent a month figuring it all out befor I could realy understand it .its science ! And math

    Lower ohms produce more heat at lower voltage than a higher ohm coil. A 2.0 ohm carto with a 3.3 volt regulated Ego will produce more heat and vapor than a 3.0 ohm coil. Lower ohms will also drain your battery quicker. Low resistance, (ohms) are not recommended for ego style batteries, although I have used 1.5 ohm dual coils before on mine.

    Voltage is used mostly to produce the vapor and taste you desire, raise the voltage for more taste and vaper, lower it if the juice taste burnt. On higher ohm coils you would run a higher voltage normally.

    As for wattage being mentioned, it is almost impossible to talk about ohms and voltage without mentioning watts. Watts = Voltage squared, divided by resistance(ohms). 4 volts squared is 16, divided by a 2.5 ohm coil = 6.4 watts. 4 Volts squared=16, divided by a 2.0 ohm coil is 8 watts. Higher watts do the same thing as higher volts. It is all related.

    Thank you! That does explain it well! I know basically electrical stuff but didn't really understand enough to put it together. Thank you all!

    I like to use the Analogy of a Light Bulb and a Dimmer Switch.

    Buying Light Bulbs in Different Wattages is like Buying Attys/Clearos in Different Ohms. And the Dimmer Switch is like the Varable Voltage.

    You can Adjust the Amount of Light (Vapor and Taste) to match Exactly what you are Looking for.
