    Hey folks, I have a quick question. So I'm seriously thinking about just rebuilding the coils on my vivi novas myself, since it seems a whole lot cheaper than buying the pre-made heads.

    I'm fine with almost all of the steps on rebuilding my heads, however, I can't seem to find a video or a walkthrough on how to actually use the multimeter to test the coils. If someone knows of a video or a walkthrough ( pref. with pictures. ) I'd super appreciate it!

    For a Nova i find this the easiest: set the meter to read Ohms at the lowest setting - a lot of meters have that at 200 on the dial, select that. Touch one probe to the outside of the threads on the nova tank and the other to the center pin in the middle of the threads. Note the reading.

    If your meter does not self zero - and a lot don't - touch the probes together and note this reading. Subtract it from the one you got above.

    Worth a mention, at least on my setup I can't check ohms while the atomizer is on the mod. Has to be taken off to get an accurate reading if you go with checking ohms at the head.
