    I recently bought a squonker recently and I had went and bought coils ( already used ones in the box) but it was a .22 ohms when I had first put the coils in and now they will read up to a .27 or a .26 is that normal for your ohms to go up 0.05 like that or no just wanted to make sure (using capo squonker) combo rda

    A Small amount of Variation is Normal. And a Coil's Resistance will Increase when it gets Hot.

    Also, have you checked the Resistance on another Mod? Because I have read that some people say the Capo Squonk's board can give somewhat Funky Results when read Coil Ohms.

    I usually check the screws on my RDAs periodically between coil changes to make sure the terminal screws are tight, especially if the vapor production seems less than normal. Can't tell you how many times I found that the screws had loosened a bit with use.

    I now do that two, after spending time dryburning and rewicking something, without checking the leads again before filling it up. That is truly a frustrating experience.

    That small a variation is normal, but it's still always good to check your build is still well seated/clamed down. That was a lesson I only needed ONE time.
