RE: Wire Question
Your Sigelei is a regulated mod. You won't melt your face. If you have a bad build, i.e. potentially dangerous, the mod simply won't operate and will likely present a message indicating such. Doesn't mean you can be careless though.

Ohm's Law is the relationship between current, voltage, and resistance. They are related as such that if you change one of those values, the other values also change, by matter of the laws of nature. Rule of thumb- the lower the build resistance, the higher the wattage, which is a big factor in vapor production. Don't try to build below .1 ohm. That's for extreme competition activities. You do not need to build that low to get very happy cloudage. I can fog a room with a .5 build, pretty much anyone can.

As for wire gauge, that is the measude of the thichness of the wire itself. The higher the number, the thinner the wire. 26g is a good all-around gauge. I do like 24g for Kanthal though, I admit.

You want to get some clouds going... Use a high VG juice. Get a build that will allow you to vape at 60-90 watts.

I call on the following experts to give advice- Michael, gentlydoingit*, paulS, Almost Jaded. No I didn't intentionally skip anyone else. But these folks are expert builders who are very helpful.

RE: Wire Question
It is a clt v3 rdrdand when u say resistance what does that mean? I know ohms is how hot the coils get or am i wrong on that as well

RE: Wire Question
Volts and watts relate to temperature by and large, ohms is just the measure of volt resistance and thus tells you amp load. 
They're almost redundant on a regulated mod as you can alter wattage to suit you, as long as your ohms are over the minimum fire resistance of the mod your set to go.

RE: Wire Question
Resistance is ohms, the resistance to the flow of electricity through the wire. Temperature is a byproduct of flow and resistance, that the device uses to create the heat used to produce vapor, or an incandescent bulb uses to produce light. Current is the amount of electricity flowing through the circuit. Voltage is the potential for current to flow. You need voltage to induce current flow, but the amount and rate are determined using ohm's law.

RE: Wire Question
Anything over .15 will fire, though if your new to dripping I'd try .5-.4. Lower than that can be quite a hit!

"..Features
Output power: 10-150watt
Resistance: 0.15-3ohms
Dual 18650 battery.
OLED screen.
High Quality Stainless Steel material.
Magnetic backplate for easy battery removal.
510 thread.
Size: 96x54x23mm.."

Along with the calculator's on Steam Engine, check out the following links in TVF's FAQ Section:
What the heck is Ohm's Law - this will show you how wattage, ohms, volts work together.
