    I got the dead rabbit by hell vape, I build a single coil with the thicker n80 wire.
    I wrapped it around 8 times and I dont know on how much wattage I should vape it.
    I'll upload two photos once from the top of the head and one from the side so you could see on how much it is.
    I just dont know much about rda I was used to the uwell crown 4 so I hope you could help me vapers.
    Thanks for reading it.

    Asking how much Wattage to use on a build is Kinda Like asking how much Salt to put on Eggs?

    Some like just a Tad. Some like a Good Shake. Others like a Lot. (And some Don't Like any at all).

    I would just start at 20 Watts. And then go up 5 Watts at a time until you find what You like.

    Welcome to ECF, Danielben21. I wouldn't be much help here, as I would never use a .3 ohm coil (not that there's anything wrong with it, if your cell(s) can handle it and you like it that's all that really matters), as I prefer a coil with at least a 1.4ish ohm of resistance. I agree 100% with what zoiDman posted.

    If you are new to RDA's spend some time getting to know them. Here's a vid of a friendly chap that enjoys vaping.

    And maybe tighten the unused coil screws just in case you lose one or they short against the top cap.

    Exactly what @zoiDman said, start off low and increase the wattage in steps till you find your sweet spot. It's the same principle when using any tank, RTA or RDA.
    You will also find when building, each coil will require different wattage depending on the wire gauge, wire type, inner diameter etc and of course it's also down to the individual preference on how they vape.

    The first thing I would do is remove 1 wrap so the coil fits between the posts without the overlap of legs on coil.

    Ditto. When you first install a coil (before doing the wick) you should do a "dry burn" Start with lower watts and slowly increase the watts. Pulse the fire button until the coil glows orange (don't overdo this) Look for "hot spots"... you want even heating (or at least glowing from the center out)
