Not sure but it's nice to see resistance displayed to 2dp, hopefully this will become the norm with the cheaper chinese regulated mods

Just a question.. Why is having the reading down to the hundredths so important to people. I personally have never understood this. If you have a mod that can give you 100 increments of power values, what's the need for knowing the .0X value? Shouldn't you be able to make up for this in an increment in wattage?

Serious question that I can't seem to figure out.

@Granted If you go below 1 Ohm, it's nice to know exactly how low you're going.

I also don't see the importance of .01 ohm resolution. It is very unlikely to have anywhere near that accuracy.
Anyway, the resistance of the systems wiring and connection points might change that much with time, so you would likely get 10 different readings for 10 different measurements taken a few minutes apart.

Most have their mind wraped around mech mods.
For them amps give the watts based on the resistance.

Look like they have a hard time to understand they can get the watts they want by increasing the volts even while using more resistive coil(s).
They are so used to see the resistance controlling the amps that thinking outside the box set by mech mods is almost an heresy.

It's more for mech mods really, when you build very low it's better to have a high level of accuracy as a means of safety, cross referencing the reading on the mod and the reading on a ohm meter will give a much more accurate result then just 1dp. If you only use regulated mods or stay above 0.3ohms then yeah it's probably not really a necessity

100 watt regulated makes sub ohm pointless. It's gonna take a while for the community to wrap their heads around this though. ;)

But you may still need to build a sub-ohm coil to reach 100 watts,it depends on the max voltage output of your regulated device.

Not true, some people including myself still like to use mechanical mods even though I also use regulated mods too - and as mentioned by tmac32 most devices now haven't got the voltage output capability to fire anything close to 100w on a 1ohm+ coil.

Regulated mods are more like an alternative to a mech rather then a replacement at this point and sub-ohming definitely has it's place, maybe now more then ever as it's not such a taboo among vapers anymore.

Let me add that when a device like that does show up, everyone and their daugher go bananas because it can go until 200W and that is too much etc etc....

Using "regulation" as poorly disguised prohibition is criminal. Vaping is not smoking, reduces harm and saves lives.
