Thanks Michael. No I'm just using one .5 ohm coil. I will check the website to have there.

I put in 3.7 volts assuming its a fully charged battery, then put in .5 ohms. Came up with 27.5 watts. I'm not sure what that is telling me.

3.7 volts is not fully charged, it's an average. 3.5V is fully depleted, and 4.2V is fully charged. Most 18650s say 3.7V on their wrapper just to show that they're normal 18650s with a 3.7V average. It's best to use 3.7V if you're trying to figure out what you'll be running at most of the time since it's in the middle, but if we're talking about your very first puff it's safe to assume 4.2V.

Guys/Girls..I am becoming a little concerned that vaping may not be for me. I have my Istick and M80 set to 24 watts and I am still coughing. Maybe I am not giving my virgin lungs enough time. Remember, I never smoked, well never inhaled anyway. I hope it gets better. I am looking for some assurance i guess that it will get better. I really enjoy this, and am having fun.

RE: SubTank RBA dry hit/wicking troubles?
Well jerry, vaping isn't for everyone, just like anything else. There are some people who never feel satisfied with vaping and go back to smoking, and I don't recommend anyone start vaping if they're not a smoker unless they do it just for fun with 0mg nicotine. But if you're having fun, don't give up! 
It took me a week or two to get used to lung inhales, even after vaping for a year, because I had been just drawing it into my mouth and then inhaling, like a cigarette. Higher wattages are made for direct lung inhales, which is something that a lot of people never get used to. It could just be that you're better off with the istick for now and shouldn't worry about using the mech for a while. Vaping can easily turn into a competition that feels like if you're not using the best stuff like everyone else, you can feel like you're not doing it right. But as long as you're having fun who cares? 
So I guess my suggestion then is to just go with the flow of what works for you and don't sweat it if the mech mod isn't working out for you. You might grow into it, or you might dray content with your iStick and M80. Everyone's tastes are different. I honestly don't like mech mods very much anymore, because my iSticks are better for a small pocket mod and my Sigelei and God Mod are better for clouds. 
So don't lose heart! There's no reason to push yourself and keep choking over it, since you've got something else that works for you.

RE: SubTank RBA dry hit/wicking troubles?
This worked perfectly for me i've never built my own before and am a newcomer to the vapeing world I have a preference for 70/30 + VG heavy juice didn't even bother trying the standard set up just drilled a couple of holes filled with juice and enjoyed. Personally drilled a 2.5 mm hole as its what do had and the results so far are perfect. I've tried "ripe capes" VCT and monkey snack, "Accies" ambrosia and "Element" banana nut and crema, all with fantastic vapour and flavour no wicking issues if I'm honest its better than the occ 0.5ohm stock coils. Just ordered a spare rba deck and some pre made 0.5 coils from myepack to continue the beginners adventure into sub ohm vapeing.
I'm using an inokin MVP 3.0 at between 22 and 24 watts

Nice!

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

Hey Don. I googled Accies Ambrosia and found few UK Sites that have it, but there is no buy button. Can you send me the link where you got yours. For some reason, it sounds good.

Welcome Paul, to the crazy world of Vaping. Buba I just want to tell you that the people on this forum, finest kind. I entered the world of vaping cautiously, but these folks made me feel at home, and got me headed in the right direction to enjoy this "hobby" I guess it is. Please don't hesitate to ask questions. Believe me you can waste some cash on the wrong stuff. These folks will keep you between the navigational beacons.
