Hi Tim & thank you again for the response.

There may have been a bit of confusion with my original post. The variance is actually 0.06 to 0.11, not 10.0 OHM.

All three mods used to show the same resistance, give or take 0.01ohm or so but now the gap has increased all of a sudden, I thought there might be something wrong.

I have wiped all of the 510 connections (both mods and tanks/coils) and I am now getting the following:

Nautilus 2 tank - Cool fire mini mod = 1.84ohm  & IPower mod = 1.90ohm        0.6ohm difference



Whirl tank - [b]Cool fire mini mod = 1.92ohm  & IPower mod = 2.03ohm        .11 ohm difference [/b]

Both coils a less than a week old and usually are hitting 2.05ohm buy the time they die after about 2 weeks to 4 weeks depending on usage. So when the IPower was showing new coils 1.89 & 2.0 straight away, I got suspicious. Could it be a fault in the Whirl coil that is contributing to the disparity?

Trent.
The difference is not .6ohm but.06ohm and nothing to worry about. Nor is it worth worrying about the .11ohm difference. Time to be concerned would be if they suddenly fluctuate a lot - just keep your eye on it.
Cheers Ecignut.

When I get home tonight I’ll check displayed resistance on some mods with the same coil and see what I get.
Thanks, Don.

I had a few bad coils with my Innokin T20s when I first started but only 1 coil each of the Whirl and Nautilus 2 in 11 months.

RE: Saying Hi.
Hey IceKiwi

It's hard to diagnose without actually seeing it.. Deffo clean the mods connector like TW said, maybe with a little rubbing alcohol too. 
.11 variance isn't a lot for that device, power level or coil, but for my device and coil it would certainly be detrimental. At the moment you don't have a problem, but that's not to say it's not the beginning of one. Like others have said keep an eye on it, any rapid fluctuations or power hikes and it's time for a new device!

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

RE: Saying Hi.
A bit late here , but dose sound like a contact issue , try an eraseor on the threads and contacts it will remove tarnish and buildup with out compromising the metal.

Dogs have owners , Cats have staff .
