RE: ohms help
Those purple Efests are Sony VTC4 cells rewrapped. They'll work safely to 30A so at worst case (3.6V) in a Sigelei 100W they'd be fine to any resistance the Sigelei will fire at (Around 0.15 ohms). The cells in the Sigelei are good for 210W at 3.6V (essentially flat). At full charge they are good for 240W.

So 100W at any resistance or usable state of charge will be fine.

At 0.7 ohms I'm not sure if it will actually go to 100W but it'll be safe at any power setting with those cells.

It is a good idea to balance charge them though.

As it is with any series mod.

Oh and hello and welcome myqd!

You're welcome!

There are no stupid questions apart from the ones you don't ask.

Always better safe than sorry.

RE: ohms help
Welcome to the forum! For future reference, it might help to read my post in the FAQ section about Ohm's Law. It's a really simple math equation that will tell you exactly what wattage is safe, or what resistance, or basically anything you need to know.
