    Dunno...

    It Could be Voodoo, Black Magic or Sun Spots.

    Or it could be that your putting 2 Cartos into your mouth Instead of 1.

    All I know is that if you use this Adapter while standing under a Smoke Alarm, you might want to wear Ear Plugs when you do.

    Mine finally arrived at the PO this afternoon. Now to decide which flavors to split. LOL

    How about two cigarettes instead of one? More smoke?
    Would 2 cartos be more like one cigar?

    For me, two cartos is just too much vapor. Looks cool though :)

    Not if you only take 1/2 a drag off each one.

    It is too much. Even using 6mg juice I managed to make myself nic sick Friday night/Saturday morning.

    I took it off shortly after taking the photos early Saturday morning and will probably only break it out for special occasions from now on.

    Using CE3's it puts out more vapor than my Genesis attys, but I was still able to take 5-6 second hits.

    I've tried a few doubles (twice pipes :)) and 3 ohm cartos which seem too weak on 3.7 volts hit well in pairs.
    A 1.5 ohm DC is my preference though (single, not in a twice pipes).

    The first few pics in this link are some of the combos I've tried :)

    yeah, I saw this... It is one of those things you want to get "just cause" , but then I would have to get atomizers for it, in various ohms ratings and it becomes it's own lil sub-project... :D

    Not exactly for me. I want just as much vapor as a dual coil cartomizer, but without the heat.

    I was looking at this one before I got the MadVapes email-
    Double Barrel Electronic cigarette Clearomizer

    But since I seem to be ordering something from MV nearly weekly, and the reviews for that clearo aren't really stellar, I was glad to get this adapter instead. At least I saved some $ on shipping.

    Even when I cranked mine up on the ProVari, it never got hot or burnt tasting, just more vapor.

    How are you enjoying your's Jim D?

    That's funny because the more I use it, the more I like it.

    I think what is going on for me is that there is more Vapor but it isn't Hot and Burned Tasting.

    The only way I could get this amount of Vapor out of a 2.8 ohm CE2 was to use 4.6+ volts. But a single CE2 doesn't hold up well at this wattage.

    I'm running two 2.8 ohm CE2's at 3.9 volts and the Flavor is Great.

    ---

    So Clue me in.

    My Provari says that the Ohms are 1.5 when I run Two 2.8 ohm CE2's. At 3.9 volts, the Math says I'm making 10.14 Watts.

    Does this mean I'm running 5.07 watts per CE2?

    Because there is No Way that a Single CE2 can taste like this at 10.14 watts.

    Hmm I thought I had explained the ohm math in my original posts.. now i don't remember and I'm not in a math mood at all. lol. but from what I can remember from reading the info on the madvapes website... this device sort of regulates the ohms of the 2 cartos. So if your using 2 1.5 ohm cartomizers with it, you might think your going to be getting a great amount of vapor but actually it levels off right in between 1.5 ohms and 3 ohms, yeah? so, 2.5 ohms or around there, but with dual heating coils... but with more airflow.. so less heat than a single dual coil cartomizer. Yeah? Does this hypotenuse sound legitimate at all? LOL

    from the madvapes description:
    then 2- 3.2 ohm single coil cartomizers will work as the total resistance would be 1.6 ohms.

    So if you are using two (2) 4 ohm single coil cartomizers your total resistance is 2 ohms.


    Your mod will see the total final resistance and won't know if you have one single coil, a pair of single coils, a single dual coil or 2 dual coils. It just sees the resistance just like a black box was attached.

    If you have the amps available try a pair of dual coils for 4 parallel coils total :)
    (a pair of 1.5 ohm DCCs in parallel, about 0.75 ohm plus a little extra connection resistance in the adapter).

    0.8 ohm @ 3.7 volts (loaded) draws about 4.6 amps for about 17 watts.

    Everyone knows a 1.5 ohm DCC don't taste burnt on 3.7 volts.
    Why would a pair of them?
    Don't try that on a twist :)

    This part I understand.

    What my questions was is Each carto producing 5.07 watts for a Grand total of 10.14 watts?

    Or is each Carto Producing 10.14 watts?

    I guess.

    Or it could be the Voodoo I mentioned Earlier.

    :D

    This thing is AWESOME I'm buying one for sure. We're going to need something capable of 6A+ to run two dual coils (4 coils total) and really see what this thing can do! haha The Zmax is incorrectly capable of 17.5W, but I'm not sure how it would act which such a low read resistance, but I can only think of one way to find out :vapor:



    I would argue your device is outputting the following
    3.9V x 2.6A = 10.14W

    and is applying to each cartomizer the following
    3.9V x 1.3A = 5.07W


    That's fairly resonable, but a little shy what most people prefer. Since your atomizer is seeing 1/2 of the amps it usually sees at 3.9V, the output voltage at which it normally gives a "burnt taste" is invalid. If you usually like it at 7W and 7W doesn't burn then you can crank it up a bit.

    4.6V at 3.06A = 14.1W or ~7W for each coil.

    I think what you are saying is True.

    And just to fill you in, I don't usually vape at 7 watts. I tend to vape at more like 6 watts. Sometimes even a tad less.

    At 5.5 ~ 6 watts, the Flavor is Great. But the Vapor production is Weak. At 7 ~ 8 watts, the Vapor is Great but the Sweetness of my e-Liquids is Gone.

    Running Dual CE2's at 5 Watts Each Might just be what I have been looking for over the Last 3 Years.

    I almost exclusively use 1.5 ohm DCC on a big battery 3.7 volt mod.
    I probably have to draw for a few extra seconds to get enough vapor, but i like it fine.
    Most don't think 3.7 volts is enough for a 1.5 ohm DCC.
    But, a pair of these gives a whole bunch of vaper at the same voltage.

    Just be sure your PV can handle the current draw.



    and everyone now agrees that a pair of 1.5 ohm cartos in parallel (single or dual coils) would draw close to 5 amps from a 3.7 volt source, with about 2.5 amps going to EACH carto for about 9 watts being used inside each carto, for a total of 17 to 18 watts delivered from the PV?

    A pair of 3 ohm cartos would draw a total of 2.5 amps from a 3.7 volt source with half of the watts being used in each carto? Less than 5 watts per carto. Not worth a darn, but vapable as a pair (just barely :))

    I'm using it on a Blu and I do notice that the Paint is Starting to Melt Off the Battery a Tad.

    as long as you don't kill a 'good' PV :)
