I've been vaping for years now. I started with the old blu's that required a separate atomizer and cartridge system. I switched to a 510 then to the newer ego's when they came out. I really love my ego - USB pass through for general use. I put a mini protank 2 on it and its good. So... A buddy brought a mechanical mod to a party and I looked it over. Simple enough really, I checked out battery dangers, built a safety catch into my system, and with a bit of time on my hands anyway built a full tilt mech mod and a two to five contact rba. I would give pics but newbies are prohibited from doing so. This thing works great with an EVOD kangertech tank on it. The atomizer I made burns with no shorts or issues. So, here is the deal. I watch videos of people building coils that read in the sub ohm range with the same wire. Some of them the 1-2 ohm range. I have 32 awg kanathal wire and can't figure it out! My ohms are always way higher, and when I try to burn higher than 2 ohms my coils come out weak and dim! As a matter of science the same alloy at the same gauge should be similar but I swear its not. My multimeter has a .2 ohm variance I am accounting for. My batteries are new 16350's that came with a dragon pipe I got as a present. Every contact I built into this device for main power is heavy enough for a 220 volt contact. I'm lost...Is it the battery? And what is up with this wire being so resistant even though others seem to be getting way lower ohms out of the same stuff? I thank you all in advance for any assistance or understanding you can provide.
