    I am using a mini protank with a 1.8ohm head installed. It read at 2.0 ohms when i first installed the head, but it is now showing at 2.2. ohms. Does this mean that the atomizer head is failing?

    some fluctuation is normal. I used the pro tank (not mini) and had replacement coils as well. Issue is the quality and consistency of most of them were garbage seeing as they are simply mass produced. Some would last 3-4 weeks others would be bad in 2 days. If it starts tasting bad w/ juice in it or just isn't hitting/vaping well swap it out.

    I have a V3 as well, doesn't seem to fluctuate the ohm reading but it does read it differently than my ZMax Mini (2.6 and 2.5 respectively) Try a different coil and see if it does the same.

    My other coil which originally read at 2.0 still reads 2.0. The one i am using now used to read 2.0 but now reads 2.2.

    Just got my Vamo V3 in the mail today. I noticed the same thing. Glad I'm not the only person seeing this.

    It's nothing to worry about I've seen a.3 variation over the life of a coil lots of times that's the good thing about a vamo running in power mode or wattage if you prefer the vamo will self adjust for the resistance .

    Don't snug down on Vamo connections because it could damage the vamo's weak O-rings. I myself have seen un-reliable readings, I usually change the head had an I clear 30 showing 3.3 and 4.2 and it was suppose to be 2.0. Once i switched to a different head it work perfectly no more then .1 - .3 off.

    Switching to Wattage mode on a bad reading head is not good because the Vamo will self adjust according to its in accurate reading. You will more then likely get a burnt taste if the coil is really a 2.0 and its reading 3.2 it will put out too much power on that 2.0 head. Just try to clean it, dry burn it, if that doesn't work just change the heads out.
