    My set up is:

    As mentioned Aluminium Limitless Tube Mech

    We out here doe rda

    With wrathful wires Ni80 competition wire reading at 0.07 ohms

    And standard Samsung 25r batteries (not in best condition)

    Ever since I got these coils put on the mech has been getting extremely hot (which I thought is normal and expected seeing as they are built very low).
    Took it to a local vape shop the other day and the guy in the shop said it's getting hot button (could be wrong, he's only 18 and comes across as a bit of a idiot).
    So now I'm at a point where I don't want to vape it if it is actually shorting and getting hot button but at the same time the coils are built low so it is normal for it to be getting warm?

    Sorry this post is rushed currently at work.

    A 0.07 ohm coil on a single 18650, trying to draw ~50A? Yup, it'll get really hot. Even the button will get hot. It will keep getting hot until finally exploding in your face.

    Ohms law is your friend. Ohm's law

    you're asking for trouble... ask eskie said, you're trying to draw 50a from a 20a battery, a Darwin award waiting to happen... juggling lit fireworks is about the same effect and at least easier to see when they're about to explode.

    At probably twice the CDR of your battery, it's going to get super hot! Have you checked out ohm's law? You're sticking a potential pipe bomb into your mouth.

    I don't know where your " out here" is but if you can buy yourself a proper regulated mod then we're not likely to be reading about you in a news story about the dangers of vaping.

    Put in an old fashioned hi-resistance .5ohm coil.
    Don't continue use with your setup, not even once..

    Maybe I'm an old fart, but 0.5 ohm is still a low resistance coil to me.:D

    Me too. But OP is a young cat.
    I use 1 ohm coils on my kayfuns. 1.3 ohm 24awg on my 24mm Goon with steller results..

    0.2 ohm on Samsung 25R is the lowest you should go. If you must use it as is take 30 second breaks after every puff.

    I don't think so, it's sometimes hard to empathize with new vapers on a quest for big clouds.
    He may have not replied because he's thinking - "F those guys, what do they know?" bolstered by poor advice from some mouth breather in the B&M.
    Or maybe, "OMFG, I nearly blowded my faced" and is too embarrassed to reply.

    ^ I WISH his videos were still up on YT, for those quiet lonely nights when I'm in need of a good belly laugh.
