    If I have a short on my clearomizer, how can I test it with a multimeter? Will the ohm resistance be significantly lower than the usual 2.0-3.0 ohm reading? Or will there be no ohm reading? One other question: If I buy a Cartomizer and Atomizer Ohm Meter (pictured below), will this device let me know if there is a short? Thanks!

    Yep It will say ooo if you have a direct short or it will read a bunch lower than it should if a store bought coil starts reading lots lower than new it's time to rebuild or trash it.To test with a meter go between the center pin and the bottem part of the device
