**Incorrect Ohm's Rating**
These are massively over-rated for the material used, anyone who's been using SS316L will know that the ohm's readings for these pre-made coils are wrong. Given the details that BTMD are supplying I wouldn't trust the materials used and the readings stated on any of their coils.

I haven’t looked at them all, so I’ve got no idea, but maybe the resistance is for the total length including the legs?

Even the additional wire used in the legs wouldn't add that much resistance, in some cases the readings are between 30-40% under the stated (and there isn't that much wire extra in the legs) either way a good practice would be install a single coil in and take an ohm reading to use as a reference.

Quickly winding up steam-engine suggests coils with those dimensions and resistance are made from Kanthal!

I use XFKM SS alien claptons (0.3 ohm) exclusively on all my mods in dual coils config and all my DNAs (adorning the same type of tanks) read 0.12~0.14ohm so I guess after they cured and with the legs cut, they are pretty accurate.

I also use a Modefined Sirius HCigar Aurora Kaos Spectrum with the same type of tanks, same readings range

Use a company you thrust! XFKM!

C'mon the coils that you say you use exclusively aren't alien coils, they're just a fused claptons (ZERO alien wave).

Also the company mentioned in the post are now advertising Kanthal with the exact same ohm's reading, clearly a company that just packages products without a care for the safety of the end user.
