    The length of your wire determines the resistance of your coil.. So 7 wraps with an internal diameter of 2.5mm may give you a .8ohm coil and a few more wraps with an internal diameter of 1mm will give you the same ohms if you use the same length of wire.

    24 awg has a resistance of (approx.) 0.17 ohms per inch, so, to get 0.6 ohms you'll need to be wrapping about 3 and a half inches. Doesn't matter what you are wrapping around, or how many wraps, as each inch of wire used = 0.17 ohms, regardless.

    Is there a wire / resistance table with these on?

    i had truble working out coils but now i just use this website its v cool Coil wrapping | Steam Engine | free vaping calculators. Also if the have an "I"whatever you can get a v cool looking app called ivape i have not used it myself but it will help with coils in the same way and a load of other good stuff to. hope this helps

    Thanks bud :) I'll check the app out and the link. I have read elsewhere and in this thread :) which I missed that 24, 8 wraps on a 2.5mm comes to 0.6 :) so all is good.
