    Did my first build dual clapton 6 wrap and was at .4 ohm for a few tanks was running 70 watt worked good. Then randomly jumped to .16 ohm which is where i thought it should be around now running 145 watts happiy. Posts seem tigjt as i can get without stripping the shit lugs again. Any suggestions? Running alien with cloud beast with the turbo rba.

    There are many variables for ohm fluctuation...I'd try a different coil for starters.

    Does the atomizer have a screw at the base of the atty or on top?.....the positive post could be loose, which will screw up ohms.

    Have you checked the insulator under the positive post....could be partially burnt or not aligned properly.

    Another thing, smok has garbage grub screws, you may want to try a couple good grub screws....even tho the posts are as tight as you can get them without stripping, doesn't necessary mean the grub screws are as tight as they should be.

    I feel the grub screws are tight enougj although garbage the spare set it came with were better than the ones in it got them quite tight using cleenex on the allen key to fit it better so it would tighten good and not strip. Where is the insulator for the positive post? That could be the problem

    The insulator is under the positive post, you have to remove the post to see it.

    No no no...has to be able to take intense heat without burning or shorting the atty.

    Take the atty apart to see the insulator, then post a picture of it.

    Take the atty apart, seldom do insulators fail unless you really cracked the power up and fried it.
