    You don't need to worry about battery drain as the device will still have the basic protections. You will just notice a drop off in power delivered and possibly flavour as it drains.

    Me too, it works well at 1.6 with the 32g at 10w, in fact it seems better for me than the 28 and 30 i was using with more watts. I’ve got a bit of mesh restricting one of mine too.

    I had one out of four bungs fail, the others are fine but i’ve been trying to be careful with them when opening and closing so hopefully they will hold up.

    I’d have preferred SS but 30g is the smallest I’ve got so had to go with kanthal to get the ohms up.

    32g stainless is handy to have around. I’ve only used it now and agin but it does have it’s uses.

    By Dingbat it works! - nice one @zouzounaki and thanks for sharing :2thumbsup:

    I f**ked up and ended up with 2.0ohms but thought what the hell I will try it, despite provoking it by letting it sleep then wake to vape it hasn't skipped a beat so far.

    Going to chuck in a 1.6(ish) build in now I know there's a workaround, my Zeta is off the naughty step for now.

    It was a total fluke, I was rebuilding them, the 32g wire was within reach and i couldn’t be bothered getting up out the chair to get the 30. :D

    @Vapaneezer Scrooge maybe you could stick a wee update in the first post on this thread for the benefit of anybody searching for a cure for this problem?

    Perfect, except it doesn’t need to be kanthal. I’m using 32g stainless. Maybe better to just say “a coil of 1.5Ω or above” or something.

    Cheers, it will definitely be helpful to anybody that finds this thread via google.
