    Ok this is probably far beyond my league since i just started vaping a week ago but i just saw a thread about rebuilding a protank coil so i was like ill give that a shot ;)
    but is there a way to measure the ohms on my ego c twist ?

    I'm afraid not. You'll need a multimeter to do that. They're not particularly expensive and have many other uses beyond testing resistance.

    Wow, another question posted before I could get around to it. I've seen youtube vids of the little machine that is out of stock everywhere you look, I was looking at buying a multimeter but how exactly would you use it? Put the positive post to the coil, the negative post to the base, do you need to fire it on a battery? What if you made a boo-boo, then fire it on your battery and fry it? [I have a history of fried battery ego-t style.]

    Thanks in advance!

    This is what i do - i used Vivi Nova tanks as an example - it's the same for them all.

    "For a Nova i find this the easiest: set the meter to read Ohms at the lowest setting - a lot of meters have that at 200 on the dial, select that. Touch one probe to the outside of the threads on the nova tank and the other to the center pin in the middle of the threads. Note the reading.

    If your meter does not self zero - and a lot don't - touch the probes together and note this reading. Subtract it from the one you got above"

    THIS is what I have. And for $9.38 I think it's a steal.

    Excellent video, thanks for the responses! Now, the only multimeter that Lowe's had in stock was over $50, I don't need to spend that much do I? *edit, qorax I didn't see your response before posting this. I'm heading that way now!

    Last small one I got was at Radio Shack, not sure you would have one local.
