    I tried using the search function but couldn't find anything specific...

    I just was wondering if it is ok to use LR attys/clearomizers on the ego-t battery? I have 2 1000mAh ego-t batteries, and am using 1.8 ohm clearomizers, specifically 1.8 ohm Kanger T2's/T3's and eVods. One of the T3's is 2 something ohms, and the coils that came in with the evods are 2 something ohms, but i have replacement coils for the t3's and evods that are 1.8 ohms, and all my T2's are 1.8. This one site says that it doesn't warranty using anything below 2 ohms on the ego-t battery, but other things I read said it was fine to use LR attys on it...So what the hell is the truth?

    Depends on the amp draw of the set up. Standard ego batts are designed to handle about 2.2A, I think. 1.8 ohms at 3.7v is within that amperage, sometimes the 1.8 actually come out at 1.5 ohms, which sets it outside of that range, closer to 3 amps. I have used 1.5 and 1.8 ohm attys on standard Ego batts with no issues. Possibly shorter lifetime for the battery (as in totally dead and broke, not just life of charge), but nothing died abruptly. YMMV as your equipment surely differs from mine (standard Joyetech 650mah battery, 510 atomizer)

    Are they genuine Joyetech? If so, they're regulated at 3.3V and you'd be drawing 1.83 amps with a 1.8 ohm atty. You'll probably notice shorter battery life between charges compared to a standard resistance atty, but it won't do any harm. I can't remember what the limit is in on the switch (it's somewhere around 2-2.5 amps), but most people wouldn't recommend going over 2 amps on a standard eGo battery.

    EDIT: USinchains beat me to it!

    yes it is genuine joyetech btw...forgot to mention that.

    That's right. Sometimes the 1.8 ohm carts will be as low as 1.5 ohm and that what prevents them from working on many protected batteries.

    I have a couple 650mAh eGo c-tiwsts that I use with single coil 2.0 ohm boge LR carts and I really like them a LOT. They produce a really nice warm clean tasting vapor, even when the voltage is set at 3.2 which is where it's left most of the time (I'll crank it up a bit when vaping my favorite vanilla bean though). I prefer a really warm vape, hot even. I like how the HOT sizzling nicotine and tantalizing flavors tickles the end of my tongue, lol. They last a long time too before clogging up and require discarding. And I've never encountered a bad one in the dozen boxes (of 5 each) I think I've gone through already since settling on this combo.

    Have used 1.7 ohms cartos on my 3.3 volt eGo without issue but it does drain the batts quickly. Realize also I tested my carto beforehand to make sure it was 1.7. Many cartos test out higher or lower. Presently using a 1.7 ohms carto that tests out at 2.2 ohms...imagine if the inaccuracy was in the minus category.

    If it were my ego-t I would happily use a 1.8ohm carto. It will give you a good vape.

    Haha! I was thinking the exact same thing other day using a 2.0 ohm carto that came out at 2.5 ohms!

    1.8ohm to 2.2ohm are the best range for Ego type batteries for performance and battery life.

    Are they regulated 3.3 now? Could have swore they used to be 3.7. Who knows what I'm thinking though, been forever since I've tested one. That makes things easier anyway, as far as LR and amps go.

    Kgo and SmokTech eGo are 3.7. JT eGo is 3.3. eGo upgrade toggles between regulated and unregulated- 3.3 or 4.2 (mostly @ 3.7 volts)

    I have 2 Joye eGo-C 650's from my starter kit that I bought almost a year ago. I've used them a lot with LR eGo-C atties at 1.6 - 1.9 ohms with no problems. I had a few atties go below 1.5 ohms on me, probably the coils shorting. What happens is that the battery light flashes a few times, the battery shuts down and 5 clicks does not turn it back on. Putting it on the charger for a few seconds brings it back. Had this experience a few times. Never hurt the batteries that I was aware of. After that experience I always checked the resistance of LR atties before installing them. Resistance can however decrease while they are being used.

    It's not always easy to spot in product listings, even on the Joyetech website:

    I researched the eGo class thoroughly cuz I was buying starter kits for a non profit vape prog I run. Kgo won out cuz it fired @ 3.7 volts and was a larger battery (1100 mah). Still distributing those same kits today with remarkable success.

    Ego batteries have always been regulated, even though stated voltage has always been listed as 3.7v. The only true unregulated eGo-class batteries were (new) Rivas and KGOs. The first Joyetech eGo to offer true 3.7 in unregulated mode was the eGo-C upgrade battery; it also offers a regulated, 3.3v mode. Ego-C Twist (and Vision Spinner) are variable voltage devices (3.3-4.8v).

    Kills batteries fast unless more than 900mah, 1100 to 1300 is better but depending on your vaping habits, might kill the buzz with the voltage drop off.

    Yes, it's OK. Joyetech makes 1.5Ω atties, but proceed with caution and check the resistance of the atty frequently. Resistance tends to drop and 1.1Ω resistance used to mean sudden death of your eGo in the past, especially with those older batteries equipped with that infamous MOSFET switch. The circuitry of eGos has been improved recently.

    Yup yup. The good old MOSFET! :D

    1.1Ω is the kill point!
