    Hello guys been a long time lurker here and ive been cleaned from cigarette for 7 months now thanks to vaping.

    I have a simple question. I made this dual fused clapton (3* 26 g wrapped with 36g ni ) on my Drop RDA and it turned out to be 0.10 ohm build. Now I dont use mech mods, i have 2 regulated box mod that support ohm as low as 0.05 ( DNA 250 Triade and voopoo Drag ) and i have 3 different kind of batteries that i can use .I have Brown LG,Imren green silver and hohm life.And since this is a low build, i am planning to fire this at 100 W ( im love warm to hot vapor) My Questions are, is it safe to fire this Coil? which mod should i use? which batttery provide the best safety for this build ? how does ohm law playout on regulated box mod?

    That is a very low build but as you are using a regulated mod, the mod should refuse to fire if it is too low for it. Too low for me though

    i thought about that as well, until i looked at my Voopoo and Triade manuals, they both support ohm as low as 0.05

    If it is on a regulated it is safe. Sub ohming that low only really would make sense on a mechanical though. Low resistance is the only way to increase power on non regulated devices. On a rsgulated device you can turn up the power and use coils that are larger. Coils that would not even fire on a mechmod work just fine on a regulated. Try some bigger coils I think you will be pleased. 20180228_154944.jpg
    These are .42.

    Thank you! I might try a higher build next on my dead rabbit.

    Regulated mods are pretty safe to experiment on.

    As long as the resistance is within the minimum spec of the mod you are fine. A regulated mod will deliver the selected watts, coil resistance does not factor into it. However big low resistance coils will need a lot of power to light up, and will have long ramp up/down times.
    Imren and Holm life are rewraps with exagerated specs, I wouldn't use them. The LGs are good 20 amp batteries good for 60 watts each. So you are safe with either mod at 100 watts, though the Triade will give you more runtime as it has three batteries.

    Yes, I'd say its safe, but you will probably not get the best battery life. The mod should shut down if it's problematic, but you will be running your setup pretty hard at that wattage, even with higher Amp cells. It should be safe to do it, in the sense that hopefully the mod will just refuse to fire if anything does go wrong. I would agree with the three battery mod suggestion, that or running a higher resistance, and stressing your mod and batteries less.

    Best of luck,
