Why buy this just buy a Vamo or K200 PV to do the same thing
Why buy a dedicated resistance meter when you could buy a backup PV that does the same thing? I guess if you have money to burn this is the way to go. Less money and more function in the PV.

Umm because carrying another eCig just for a ohms reader that only reads x.x is plain retarded.

And carrying a more expensive usb-powered ohm meter is smart?!

I've never managed to fry a Vamo by using a low-ohm coil - it won't fire anything below 1.2ohm and it can measure resistance as low as .1ohm pretty accuratecly.

No, you wont fry your mod. All APV have protection that will prevent them from firing if the atomizer's resistance is too low. The thing with using APV as ohm readers is that most of them have a limit. Many vapers like to go sub ohm, which some mods will only say that it is a short or it doesn't detect an atomizer.

This would be perfect, I do rebuilds right next to my computer and this would replace the vamo and rebuilding stand with one device. I wonder how accurate it is? So far the vamo has been good enough, but I have yet to go below 0.6Ω.

Accurate to +-0.4%. Will read from 0.01 to 9.99 ohms.

Thanks VaperUK, I should have said I wonder how accurate it actually is. ;) The lower the resistance gets, the more that .4% matters. Of course if I ever want to get so crazy that I need that much more accuracy I will get myself a Fluke.

I agree with Vapor. I did this math before buying my vamo. I had fried 2 ego batteries building my first coils and decided I needed a ohm meter. Looking at the prices, buying the vamo sounded much more interesting. So I did.
