I'm really worried about screwing up my parts, so I was wondering if anyone has made a youtube video of how to properly do this?

Hey Artist Boy! I have a Lavatube V2.5 (I think...variable wattage/voltage, coil head resistance checker, ect.). I was just wondering if you could give me some information about the limits of the device. I put a KangerTech Protank 2 tank on it, and I want to start rebuilding the coil heads. I need to know the minimum/maximum resistance I can make the coil head so that I don't ruin my Lavatube or battery. Thanks in advance!

a lot of really depends on what voltage/wattage you are looking to run it at. The LTv2.5 has a 3amp limit, so use ohms law to make sure the ohms and voltage doesn't draw more than 3 amps. I am not a sub ohm kind of guy so I am not sure if the LT will fire a sub ohm even if it is with in the 3 amp limit range. Personally I don't see a need for sub ohm. I believe it doesn't fire on sub ohm setup. Lowest I have put on a LT is a 1.0ohm coil. If the ohms are too low the device will let you know by saying Lo (and the ohms symbol). As for the high end.... I have a 4.3ohm coil in a Zen U that I use just fine ( have to crank it up to get that guy going though.

Hope that helps out. I suggest just staying away from Sub ohms on the LT.

Sub ohm vaper here :twisted: .....and...I agree with AB...the LT will not fire subs.

They are designed for the general vaping community....not extremist
Keep any rebuilds in the "normal" ohm arena ....ie....1.2 - 3.0 ohm ....and it will perform just fine. :thumbup: ;)

Thanks guys! I'm not looking to sub-ohm just yet. I just didn't want to build a 1.3ohm and ruin anything. Now I just gotta get a feel for coil making to see what gauge wire and how many wraps I can use to get certain ohm readings. You guys are great! =)

Don't know if you use Android phone...but...if you do, this is a great app to use for rebuilding attys....

Also, I have a chart on here that you can download and use to see ohms, volts, amps, etc....at a glance. It was made for the original V1 LT...but...will work with any device. The red cells were set for 2.5 amps (can ignore it now) since the LT V2.5 is good for 3 amps.

32 gauge should get you near your 1.3 ohm goal, something like 4 or 5 wraps should do
