    I rebuilt my Protank II coil to 1.3 ohms using organic cotton. I threw is on my DNA30 box mod, and I was just wondering what is the highest wattage I should use with this tank. I don't know if there are any safety concerns with the heat being produced inside the tank. I've been vaping at around 14-16 watts. Can I crank it up to 25-30 watts?

    Try it? Look out though because it's easy to scortch that rubber seal that sits at the base of the chimney--in which case you can expect a nice burnt rubber taste.

    If you end up burning insulators, Lightning Vapes has them in both rubber and silicone. I don't have a high wattage device, so can't help you with that part.

    Crank it up until you don't like it. Bet you can't vape that high, though. That's an awful lot of heat for such a small area and airflow. Usually about 12 watts or so is about all my rebuilds like.

    If you want 25-30watts i suggest a kayfun. Mine handles it exceptionally well.

    It's more the gauge of the wire that matters for high power on a single coil like that;
    thicker gauge wire takes more power; thicker gauge wire has lower resistance, so you end up with lower ohm coils when you use thicker wire.

    If you try to run 30 watts through 30 gauge at 1 ohm you'll just fry the coil.
