RTA Safety (New to vaping)
Hello everyone,
I would like to start by saying thank you to anyone who reads this and decides to help me.
I have recently stopped smoking and I am relatively new to vaping. I have purchased myself a regulated mod " Manto S 228W". The sub ohm tank I have is a scion 2. The coils I have been using seem to get quite hot fast and the flavour isn't the best, the coils also take a while to rewick. I have decided to buy a Scion 2 RTA to start building my own coils. I have some questions regarding safety.
Do I need to use ohms law to ensure I am not exceeding the max amps or do I just set it too 40w/50w/60w until I find the perfect wattage for flavour?
Will the box mod automatically detect what resistance the new coil I have made is?
Is there a risk of the mod exploding?
any tips on safety I would appreciate greatly. 
Thanks, Mason.

RE: RTA Safety (New to vaping)
Hey Adam.

Battery safety is your first concern. Make sure the batteries you use are indeed up to the task, there are many fake cells around.
Once your happy, you'll notice in the mods instructions the 'minimum' fire resistance. This is the lowest resistance the mod will fire. As long as your coils are reading on screen higher than that lowest value you shouldn't have any problems, just set the wattage to an acceptable level.
As a rule of thumb; If you want to use really high power (~60+ w) then you'll need low resistance coils (~.15-.2), if you want low power (~10-20w) then you'll need high resistance coils (.7 -2ohm). Anywhere in between is about you finding your sweet spot. The mod reads resistance and won't let you over drain the batteries.
Hope that helps

Thank you, does moving the coil around change the resistance? for example if it is touching the side of the atomizer it will be higher/lower?

RE: RTA Safety (New to vaping)
There is no way a coil should ever be touching anything other than the cotton and the post holes! 
This will lead to a horrid burned tasting vapour at the very best, at the worst with a bad pair of cells this could lead to a battery failure.. which can be very bad!
