1.8 ohm shows 2.1 ohm in itaste VV3
does anyone know why the 1.8 ohms show 2.1 ohms in the itaste vv3?

...and perhaps why the original protank II coils (2.5 ohm, SKU 1429700 ) wouldnt work at all ?

a good reason to try to rebuild the 2.5 ohm one with the premade wicks and wires...?

Coils are often off their stated ohms. The 1.8ohms is what they should be close to and they seem to be off by only .3ohms. It might be also the ohm meter feature on your iTaste is little off.


Not sure why the 2.5ohms aren't working for you though but yes all the protank coils can be rebuilt with wick and wire.

as they also sell 2.2 ohms, i wouldnt expect my 1.8 ohms showing 2.1...

also, depending on the amount of liquid in the tank it sometimes says even 2.2. ohms, while it should show 1.8 ohms...

i think my itaste vv3 is maybe not alright...
not sure...

Leaving this here for the less informed.

Clearomizer coils are fitted by a Rubber Grommet. This is the only pressure to make the coil connect to Positive and Negative surfaces.

Coils will almost always read high fresh from the packaging.

Firing the coil sets connection(arching) and once well established the coil should read within .2ohms
i.e. a 1/8ohm coil may be 1.6ohm-2.0ohm under normal conditions.

Kanger Coils Not firing(new)
99% of the time, a Non-firing KANGER coil will be due to the center contact not touching the Battery center contact.
The Kanger center pin may be pulled slightly down(1mm max)to achieve contact. Never over tighten the clearomizer to avoid pushing the pin back up.

Many Regulated Mods, vv v3 etc, have minor internal resistance the unit cannot compensate for. This adds to ohm reading inaccuracy.
