    Does anyone know if using Stainless steel drip tips will cause low resistance atomizers to overheat?

    I use stainless steel tips on my clearos and carto tanks. Everything I have is LR and I've never had a problem.

    In theory it should cool them faster, since the drip tip would heat up it's spreading the heat to a larger mass which will have more surface area to cool. An aluminum drip tip would be much better for cooling aluminum is a much better conductor of heat.

    I should follow up and say I recently picked up my first aluminum drip tip, along with a replacement for my 901 atty. It's a sexy drip tip, I love the way it looks, however being such a good conductor of heat it forces you to slow down on your vaping. If you vape it like three times in a minute it starts to burn your lips. I guess that's one way to prevent overheating.

    i just met from local experienced e juice seller and he advised me not to use rebuildable attys on vw or vv kits. it will get short circuit and makes ur pv or ur attys blow. neither clone attys nor the original one. is that true ?

    I use stainless steel drip tips with my lr atty's. If I hit the provari too hard, too fast, it will warm up. But it has never hurt me.

    ive never had too much issue. the o ring isolates the tip so its not like the heat transfers from the top cap or anything

    A shorted atty will fry your pv depending on its protection built in.

    The Provari has built in protection that's supposed to be pretty good they say and I've read posts where people use them to test for shorts and hot coils while rba. So if it's a Provari you're supposedly safe plus have a tool to build right coils. The mechanicals are best for resistances below what a regulated mod like Provari will allow. Sub 1.2ohms or something like that's. That would be for knowledgable people IMO but they use mechanicals is all I know.
