Not correct ohms?
Purchased this tank when it read 2.1 Ohms and it read correctly on my SVD for about 3-5 days until it began reading at 2.2 I've cleaned it, tried tightening/loosening it etc and still reads 2.2

It doesn't effect anything I just wanted to know if anything like this has happened to anyone else and also what does it mean? I usually run I between 4.2 & 4.5

Often coils are a little off from the stated ohms (they are actually rated at 2.0ohms in details/specs)

They also will change as you vape due to buildup of juice (even after a clean and dry burn) and just regular use of the coil heating and cooling. It is quite common ;)

Have you dry burn them to get the crude off the coils?

Isn't that where you start at 3.3. Slowly work your way up?

These are prone to changes in resistance. Usually this is caused by pulling on the wicks when installing or removing the head. The two coils don't have a lot of room in the central shaft and can end up not quite touching each other or the wall of the shaft. Sometimes this can be rectified by ensuring the coils are centralised.
The resistance will change over time as a natural consequence of use. 0.6ohms difference is too much for normal usage unless you are sucking through a lot of dark juice and not cleaning.
Occasionally a big difference in resistance is caused by the 510 connection not making proper contact with the clearo connection.
More sense than money.....

This is the 30S and not the 30.

The wickes are inclosed in a carto like tube that is not removable so wick movement shouldn't be an issue I would think. The coils touching probably have something to do with it though as it is dual coil.
I have one coming in my next order so I don't have one to play with.

Caught fire?

When I dry burn (while their still damp) I do it after I rinse them and towel dry them. With these of course you can't dry water from wicks to easily I suppose but burn them and then let them dry out. Maybe tie to string and give it a whirl outside (centrifugal force should help) I use to do that to dry poly-fill cartomizers faster.

I've never had one catch fire though.


Here is a video on dry burning the iclear 30 without tube (Sorry no videos for cleaning 30s out yet). It should help but only problem would be drying wicks. I guess set it over night on a paper towel to dry until you are able use it again. After you burn the damp coil.

Innokin iclear 30 Review and Cleaning

Yes if you are vaping high VG or darker colors it will gum up faster and shorten life of the atty.


You can also use a toothpick gently to make sure the coils themselves are spread apart(spring looking part of coil) and not touching each other and that the 2 separate coils are also not touching as it is dual coil.

Could also try boiling them maybe.

I followed the video, cleaned good, dry burned properly twice. Dried it a little and it showed 2.5 ohms, I let it completely dry over night and checked it again, now it reads 5.2 ohms. I tried seperating the dual coil and no luck. I'm trashing it, good thing I already ordered a replacement.

Sometimes they show really high after just cleaning them. After I add juice and apply power it goes back down. But they may just be to gummed up to much still. Yeah I ordered a couple of 5 packs of 30s coils myself being they are not rebuild-able. I'll report when I receive them and give you my opinion when I have one to play with ;)

It's been a couple hours, still reads 5.1 ohms. Haha inserting in trash now. I have no atomizers now and 4 new juices from virgin vapor 😜
Should be getting them soon!!
