It is almost inevitable that at some point in every vaping journey you will come across the words Ohms, Watts, and Voltage.
VOLTS. This is the power that is discharged from the battery to heat up the the coil in your cartomizer, atomizer, clearomizer, or tank.
OHMS are a measure of RESISTANCE to the voltage being supplied. The lower the ohm rating, the lower resistance something has to the power running through it, and the hotter it will become when power is running through it.
A 1.7 ohm atomizer has little resistance to the power of the battery. It will allow the coil to heat up much more than will a 2.4 ohm atomizer at constant voltage. Lower ohm ratings need lower voltage running through them to prevent coil overheating and possibly melting. Higher ohm ratings are able to take higher voltages.
Many people feel that low resistance, with its hotter burn for the voltage creates better vapor production. Anybody using a battery that has just about lost power notices that vapor production drops off. This is because, in a standard resistance 2.4 ohm cartomizer, once the voltage left in the battery drops below about 3.5 volts, there is not enough heat to produce good vapor.
The downside of using low resistance coil devices is twofold. The coil will likely burn out faster, because it burns hotter, and juice consumption will increase. Still, there are folks who swear by low resistance as the way to vape because of the upside – warmer vapor and more of it, perhaps 20% more vapor production than from standard resistance coils.
