    i just did my first build on an rda and the ohms are fluctuating from .4-.6 and my mod is rated for .1ohms and im trying find out if this has happened to anyone and if i should be concerned about using it, it puts out vapor alright and everything but the ohm jump around is something i did not expect would happen as far as i can tell it is built right this is a pre-wicked picture

    Ohms will change with the heat applied, not so much with kanthal but especially with stainless wire.

    Hmmm.. SS definitely fluctuates but that seems like a wide variance.

    SS should only be pulsed at very low wattages - it cannot take the serious blasts kanthal requires

    Make sure the clamps are tightened down fairly snug.

    .03 is negligible and to be expected :)

    IMG_0958.JPG IMG_0958.JPG Puts out pretty good for such a small build and that wasn't that big of an inhale maybe half of how long I normally do when I'm trying to get a big cloud
