    I was wondering if anyone could tell me if a HV atty will work with a 3.7v 14500 battery, or if i should just wait till i can get the proper atty. Thank you

    An HV atty is intended mostly for 6 volt devices. The resistance is rated in the 4.5 - 5.0+ area which would really bring down the resultant wattage with a 3.7v mod, so you are not going to harm the atty by running it at a lower voltage than it was built for, but the performance, of course, will suffer.

    What Kent said. Specifically:

    Watts (i.e., intensity of the vape) = Volts X Volts / Ohms (i.e., atomizer resistance)​

    • A regular 2.3 ohm 510 atty on a 3.1V 510 batt = 3.1 X 3.1 / 2.3 = 4.2 watts (normal 510 performance:))

    • A regular 2.3 ohm 510 atty on a 3.7V mod = 3.7 X 3.7 / 2.3 = 6 watts (very nice:thumbs:)

    • A 4.5 ohm HV atty on a 3.7V mod = 3.7 X 3.7 / 4.5 = 3 watts (dismal:()
