    Hey,

    What if I had a 20A battery and I built a coil with the resistance of 0.25, that would make the amps 14.8 (I'm not really gonna build this as a beginner just yet, I need to get familiar with everything first), I want to make sure I stay safe. Is 5amps enough for headspace/variance? If it is not enough, I can build up to 0.5 (or even higher) and that's already fine and will satisfy me, with 10Amps of headspace.

    *EDIT* WOW, I just realized what a 0.5ohm build can do, it actually blows my mind that a 0.5ohm can actually blow really big clouds I expect from a 0.15ohm build.

    Hi AndrewxW.

    Leaving some Headroom Amp-wise is Always a Good Idea. Especially for a Battery that has seen Many Charges/Discharges.

    And Yes... You can get Great Clouds while staying above the .25 Ohm threshold.

    BTW - You are using a Mechanical Mod, Right?

    yeah, I'm planning to build one.

    how many amps would you recommend for headspace?

    I would think that 20% of Headroom would be a Good Call.
