Slow heatup?
Anyone find that these dual coils take a lot longer to heat up (at 5-6W) than single coils? I only got one to test but it takes 2x as long than my old ones, unless it's faulty but ohms read correct.

I run single coils at 6watts and use 8watts or higher when using dual coils, so yes it is quite common.

You are actually really running 2 x 3ohms coils which cut in half gives you the 1.5ohms

I use these on my protank and aerotank (both mini) attached to a vision spinner II.

They work great from 3.3V up to the sweet spot of 3.7V-3.8V. Anything higher than 9W-11W tends to burn the juice.

Have a look at Ohms law calculators online, and make sure your battery has enough C (available amperage) to fire 1.5ohm coils at whatever voltage you are running. That said, I have used these successfully on tiny unregulated 450mah ego clones with no issue.

Also make sure there is no residue from juices on the coils by giving them a dry burn every few tanks. Do this by firing the atomizer for 2 sec bursts. Don't be tempted to just fire for ten seconds until the cutoff, as the little o ring at the bottom of the coil can get damaged by excessive heat with no airflow.
