    if you were asking about the provari v1 running a sub 1 ohm coil, i dont think it will, because of the 2.5 amp limit on the v-1, i believe you would need a resistance of about 1.2 ohms. now on the v-2 which has a 3.5 amp limit you can run a resistance down to 0.8 ohms.

    sorry, you wanted the 2.1 ohm coil on the provari, no problems. it was another post about the 1 ohm coil, not yours.

    I'm using 32 ga. a1 kanthal, and 5 wraps for around 2.1 ohms on a did clone. I'm pre wraping around a tube that's a little over 2mm in diameter, with close coils and I go between the bottom and middle nut of the center post.

Than coil it on the ss wick cut wire just after where the screws were tightend connect the ends and i have my ohmage.
    on a provari I have gotten it to .8ohms, but you can't go above 3volts (3.1 max)

    my experience at least

    WAY too much thinking goin on here....

    why is everyone over complicating this...

    Start off with 4/5 wraps...
    TOO HOT - add a coil
    TOO COOL - take out a coil
    GOOD - dont touch it and continue vaping.


    due to the fact that different tanks take different thickness of wicks, and no two wicks will be exact dia.
    getting that coil to ohm out exactly to whatever ohms you want is more trouble than it needs to be.

    just wrap it, have a vape and take away or add coils as your taste buds dictate.
    cuz that is all you can actually do....

    If you have a VV / VW than you have more room to play, but with VV/VW you can wrap a 3ohm and still have some fun.

    i was stuck in a 1.8-2.0 ohm CE2 phase for a long time.... once i got into rebuildables, i tried really hard to stay in that range without satisfaction.
    Only when i stopped caring about ohms, did i find my own sweet spot at 1.2 Ohms

    All I have to say is, This will be fun! I am looking forward to playing with my new set up. I just have to figure out the best size and type of wire to use. Who sells the best selection of wire and mesh?

    wire and mesh is also subjective, we can only suggest what works for us.

    i use 400 & 500 mesh depending on the atty it is going into.

    I personally like 30ga. as it is thick enough to last a long time without popping like the 32ga.

    i have 28ga. i like the hit it gives, but it takes way too long to heat up...

    this is just my personal observation. YMMV

    I'm using 100% PG. Does that matter?

    not from my experience, I've only experienced wicking issues with high VG in my setups. And that is the general thought around ECF.
    I see no problems if you are using PG e-liquid.


    for reference i tend to stick to a 50PG-50VG mix.
    I've experience slow wicking from overly tightened wicks.... High school has tough me many things, lol
    but i may be doing something else that i havent been able to notice.
