    Yeah, that would look good. I've been looking at various ones; if I buy online, maybe a 13a. An online vendor I've been looking at has 3 types it calls A, B and C so not sure what they are but it turns out they have a proper shop and are only a short bike ride away so I could call over, pay cash and get it there and then. This is type A

    type B looks good too

    ok good. seems to work ok at 1.2/1.1 anyway. won't go any lower on ohms now because it works ok at that for my pocket vape and should have a mech mod soon. Would that be a safety feature, the amps cut off thing?

    Never had an issue yet. I get good throat hit and good vapour production too. :)

    I think I prefer the first one but that's just me.

    Come to think of it ebayhomepc has a point... Otherwise you'd be putting close to 3 amps through an ego battery (if my understanding of it is correct) as the amp limit on the provari is 2.5 (again by memory) I'm guessing it has hit the cut off and is just working circa 3.7v :D

    up to now im thinking that too. I think I would prefer a side button, the 13a looks a bit like it too.

    Ah ok thanks. So I probably hit a peak of power at maybe a bit under 2 ohm resistance and I'm just saving wire length by building lower. Might go back up to 4 turns next time on the coil then and see if it makes any difference. It's vaping well anyway, so as long as it's safe, it will do.

    Lowest I'll go is about .8 and thats only because its dual coil.

    Is that on an Ego or a mech? Got a cheap Genesis with a cracked tank that I'm making into a duel coil dripper, might go sub ohm then when I get a mech.

    Ps a duel coil isn't a fight at dawn weapon, it's just bad spelling
