    I started rebuilding my own atomizers, and I'm bulding the ones for my Kanger Subtank Mini at .3- . 4 ohms and the Delta II at .5-.6 ohms. my question is it normal for my batter (Eleaf Istick50) to lasting only about 2/3 of the length that it does with prebuilt coils?

    I know with a prebuilt delta i was getting close to 4 days and about 3 and a half with the subtank prebuilts. now i'm getting about 2 days to 2 and half either way. The eleaf is a new one, just got it in as a replacement about 2 weeks ago (dropped the other one too many times to count to the point it shorted itself when i tried to fire it and shut itself off). Any takes on this?

    when I use my Atlantis .5Ω the 50W lasts about a day and a half before I need to recharge it, 1.8Ω tank can go 3 and a half days

    That brings back memories. Two years ago I was rebuilding Kanger Protank coils and had 25 of them in rotation, and no, they did not last long at all, so yes, that's normal. I had to carry spares with me. In time it became too much a bother, and I got an RBA. I'd much rather wind a .7 ohm coil on my genny than mess around with those coil heads. You may wish to consider a hardware upgrade.

    Well the subtank mini had am rba and that's what I'm using now. I ditched the protank because of the airflow problems. I was just asking on battery life, which rabbit up there seemed to answer closely, so thanks man

    You might compare the Ga. and Wraps of the Factory coils.

    Thinner wire heats quicker and you tend to use less power overall at the same ohms.

    If you are building Lower than Pre-made resistance, yes the battery will deplete faster.
