Keep the builds over .25 ohms and never put it in your pocket with the battery in.

That's all I'm good for, lol

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

This is one for the old bald Canadian - he is usually around at some time each day - I wonder if you could MTL with a mech mod - MTLing on a Noisy Cricket might keep it quiet for a while[Image: tongue.gif]. Hey paulS where are you.

RE: I'm New to...
You can MTL on any mech even a series although it is easier with a dual parallel. On a Series with the right build an atty it can work. Just keep the resistance high - 1.8+. You will be vaping between 25 - 35 watts. You need a single coil around 28g wrapped eight or nine times maybe a 2.5 diameter. Can be done on a series. On a parallel you can target slightly lower - around 1.2 - 1.5. So less wraps or a bit lower gauge.

Biggest thing about mech mods is battery safety. Learn Ohm's Law and how to use it, if you haven't already. Keep the resistance high enough that you won't be pulling too many amps from your 18650s, the best ones are rated around 20A.

RE: I'm New to...
something I always do with my mechs is unscrew the atty a few turns when I am not using it to prevent any sort of autofiring
I also check any new coils on a regulated mod to make sure there are no shorts and the resistance is ok
also with any new tube mods I check for vent holes ,I take the 510 section off and blow down it
I have not had one yet  without vent holes but its still worth checking Good

if at first you don't succeed ,call it version 1.0
