    This depends heavily on what mod you have. If you’re trying it with a single battery mech mod for example very bad things could happen. If it’s a two battery VV mod though you’re almost certainly fine.

    Wattage is a personal thing, everyone will "hit" the same atomizer/build a little different. Start your wattage low and work up to the setting that works best for you and your inhale style and juice.

    It’s an rta so there is no recommended wattage. It’s whatever you like the vape at. There can be safety concerns though depending on what mod you are using it on though

    Then you’re fine :) two battery regulated mods are fine to over a hundred watts

    You can... Although it's really not recommended to push you wattage to the highest level possible on a mod, battery life tends to be poor. If you were vaping at 60 watts, and satisfied, there is no reason to go higher. The closer you are to a mods "highest tolerance" the more strain on the equipment and the more strain on the batteries, which you will be recharging more quickly. Leave yourself some head room, if you MUST go up, maybe try increasing by small intervals and see where you are satisfied. I'm not a high wattage vaper, but with that mod I don't see why you couldn't cap it somewhere around 70 watts. If you must. I'd actually start out with lower wattage than 60 watts, even, and see where you just land as a "great" vape.

    You don't have to vape 100 watts just because it's possible to do so, although if that's the wattage you land on, it is.

    I love how when someone gives a "highest safe tolerance" someone immediately wants to vape it. It's not necessary, necessarily.

    Why would this be bad on a single battery mech? On a full charge this is going to pump out about 14 amps and 58-59 watts...am I missing something?

    Bah. This was days ago. Now I’ve got to try to do math at 1am... Nope. Brain too old.. Iirc the issue with this thing was he was trying to run a .15ohm build which is basically never a good idea on a single battery mech. Assuming your math is correct though while it would have made a battery eating device it might have worked, at least for a little while. I dunno. It’s late. It’s a necrothread.

    I feel you dude it’s late lol. I was just curious because I have a tube mech on its way in the mail, and figured I’d be putting .25’s, .30’s on here and it seems like it would be a satisfying vape

    Hola,
    The issue was the mass of the coil.
    It takes a fair bit of power to heat up some huge multiple wire builds. Often a single battery is not sufficient.

    YMMV
