Will short stop fuses work with sub ohming?

    I recently purchased a Nemesis and I placed an order for a short stop fuse last night and I was in touch with the vape safe 2 makers trying to figure out why lots of sites were dropping their fuses and they said their fuse doesn't work with sub ohming.

    Does the short stop fuse still work?

    The short stop fuse I believe trips at 7 amps. A .5 ohm coil running on 4.0 volts is going to grab 8 amps.

    Many people are using the 30 amp sony's.

    If you are going to stay under 7 amps you are fine with one and can probably grab some good deals as the vendors try to unload their stock.

    Sorry according to Holocronlabs labs the short stop is 5 amps not 7. http://holocronlabs.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/shortstop_instructions_onepage_WEB.pdf

    Idk if I will be going that low with sub ohming to be honest.
    I have an Efest 2000mah 10 amp 18650, 2 Efest purple 35amp (which are really 20amp LG he2) 18650s and 2 Sony 30amp VTC5s

    So with me using the 30amp VTC5s on say a .20 or so coil will it trip?
    Sure I wanna get so massive clouds but I don't really need to get too low.

    I ordered a PlumeVeil 1:1 clone and will be using it and I don't think I'll need to go ridiculously low with the ohms cause from the looks of it it's gonna chuck some vapor.
    Just using my Kayfun on a 1.8 ohm coil it's producing a lot of vapor. I use all VG.

    4.2 volts using a .2 ohm resistance coil will pull 21 amps. It should trip.

    Plug your variables in. Stay within your limits. I generally use 4.0 but 4.2 would probably be best. It really depends on your battery volt at the time of firing. 4.21 is what it comes of the charger. When I vape with my batteries they are generally down to 4.18-4.2.

    I do not use the efest as I have heard stories that the amp limit is exaggerated. I also do not sub ohm. Lowest coil I ever made was dual 1.4. It was too hot for my tastes.

    There are several safety fuses on the market, and each model may trip at a different amp limit.

    Vape Safe is a patented brand name and they have two versions available:

    • Vape Safe Safety Fuse - one time use only, a hard short trip will destroy the device and it will need to be replaced. It has a 7 amp limit, so it will trip if used below 0.7 ohms.

    • Vape Safe 2 Safety Fuse - multiple-use and self-resetting. It has a 6 amp limit, so it will trip if used below 0.8 ohms.


    Please be aware that this device is applied to the negative end of the battery.

    not interest in the vape safe 2. This thread is about the Short Stop fuse I can get the Short Stop on sale right now for under $9

    The Short Stop isn't polarity sensitive it can go on the top or bottom of the battery.
