Ohm/vape safety
Hi. I'll list the details below, and please check if it's safe to use, or give any tips as to how to be safer. Thank you

Mod: snow wolf 200w plus
Atomizer: Triad RDA
Coil: Kanthal 0.5 (7 wraps)
Batteries: married Sony VTC5s and married AWT blacks
Resistance: 0.14-0.15ohms
Wattage firing range: 120-150w

Is it too risky, or am I playing at a safe level? Should I open or use spaced coils in order to raise the resistance a bit? Thank you guys in advance

RE: Ohm/vape safety
I prefer to keep it over .2 ohms personally; anything below that jus eats into battery life and juice usage with minimal actual benefit.  *shrug*

Any tips on how I could possibly raise the resistance without having replace everything again? Maybe put some spaces between the loops?

RE: Ohm/vape safety
Length of the wire constitutes resistance, coil proximity won't change it.
You could always turn the wattage down a litle..

Thank you. Do you think putting it on vertical build will affect it, or not?

A 7 wrap coil will read the same no matter how it is installed.

Thank you. Guess I should replace the coils, then

RE: Ohm/vape safety
Vertical coils are awful, no matter what anyone on YouTube says.  

Half the wicking = half the juice delivery = twice the potential for dry hits.

The entire concept of vertical coils other than externally wrapped ones with side juice delivery (i.e., prefab coils for many tanks) needs to be taken out behind the barn and shot.

Hahah I'll take note of that, thanks.
