    Welcome NMB, your certainly won't have that problems with the RM2. Congrats. Keep us updated with pics and your experiences of the goodies. I agree, start at 1.8 ohms and work from there.

    My advice: Put away your meter for the time being.

    Cut a length of 28AWG Kanthal, use a precision screwdriver or 1/16" drill bit and wrap a coil with 10 to 12 wraps. Install that coil on your RM2 and install a cotton wick. Mount the RM2 on your Grand, fill the bottle, soak the wick good, and pop in a fully charged AW IMR 18650. Take a few vapes. As Super X already advised you, too cool = lose a wrap or two; too hot = add a wrap or two.

    In my humble opinion, micro-coils vape amazingly well within a range of resistances. Anywhere from 0.8Ω to 1.3Ω gives me a very satisfying vape. Using meters and knowing your exact resistance is fine and dandy, but not particularly necessary.

    Enjoy your new gear!

    Interesting I was investigation Kanthal and found resistance per foot

    32 ga = 13.75 ohms per foot = 1.146 per inch
    30 ga = 8.36 ohms per foot = .697 per inch
    28 ga = 5.27 ohms per foot = .439 per inch

    I guess that gives you a clue, eh?

    Boge quality control blows goat. I can live with a few duds in a batch, maybe 5% or thereabouts, but the last two bricks I purchased (reputable vendor) were absolutely bloody awful.

    The DOAs (bad thread, dodgy resistance, blocked side vents etc.) are bad enough but the sneaky buggers, the ones that check out OK but die right quick, are massively annoying.

    So there you have it; NoMoreBoge, BogeBeBuggered or whatever.

    Rant over. Well, for now.
    Ha! Thanks for the explanation! I've had much better luck with Boge, I use their Laser Slotted LR XL cartos, and haven't had a single dud.

    My thinking exactly, Matthee.

    I know the Reo stuff will be rock solid so any problems will be down to me.

    BTW, does everybody who orders Reo stuff turn into a Postman stalker or is it just me?

    You mean like sitting by the window on delivery day with a pen in hand and running to meet the truck as it pulls up, holding out the pen and saying "let me sign it" and grabbing the package?

    No, nobody does that!

    I'm almost never home when my Reos come, so I have to have them hold it at the post office, and then I get down there ASAP!
