How to make .5 ohm single coil
0.6mm (22g) – 0.8mm (20g) – This thicker wire is for those building very low resistance coils for use in dripper with a very large build area.
Using this wire will result in coils roughly around 0.1 – 0.3 OHMs Another defining factor of the resistance of your coils is how many wraps and how many coils you are using in your dripper or rebuildable tank.
We have used a lot of different ohm’s meters at Oxford Vapours HQ and nearly all of them have been very cheaply/poorly made and have extremely inaccurate readings – even a lot of budget to intermediate regulated box mods with an LED reading of your coils resistance are inaccurate by up to .5 ohms – this tolerance can mean the difference between you drawing a safe and an unsafe amount of AMPS from your battery.
We have literally scoured the globe to find Ohm Meters that we can rely on for quality, are fully serviceable and have an accuracy that you can trust.
The best advice we can give is to buy a major brand unregulated battery from a reputable retailer – ensure that your battery has at least a 20AMP rating – ideally 25 AMPS for sub-ohm vaping.

Never drain your batteries past 3.3 volts – ideally always recharge them at 3.6 volts. If you drain a battery past 3.3 volts, if it shows signs of heat damage or has dents from being dropped – recycle it and buy a new battery – it is no longer safe to use. If your battery’s plastic wrap is melted or peeling away, replace it – heat-shrink battery wraps can be brought very cheaply and applied with a hairdryer. If your mech mod for some reason get’s stuck firing with a battery inside for longer than 10 seconds it may no longer be safe to use – put it on your charger – if it shows any abnormal behaviour, recycle it and buy a new battery. Every rechargeable battery has an average life span of 300 charge cycles. An 18650 should take about 3hrs to charge from 3.6 to 4.2 volts – NEVER leave them overnight unless you have a smart charger like the Xtar VC4 that will stop charging batteries when fully charged. Cheap chargers could use too much power which can be dangerous for battery cells.
For most people this will mean that they last approximately 8-12 months. If they show signs of not holding their charge or not charging fully, recycle it and buy a new battery. When building your own coils, there is a lot to take in to consideration and many factors that will change the resistance (OHMs) of your build.
We think it’s safest to stick to the continuous current rules.
