    Lightbulb ego/510 style ohm/voltmeter (IMAGE HEAVY)

    so wanting an easy way to check the remaining voltage in my ego cells and also an ohm meter for my coils.

    I decided to pull apart an old vision clearomiser and turn the base into a voltmeter connector for my ego cells I have also ordered a 510 connector from Ecig-sa

    I will fit hopefully Monday when it arrives to test resistance in my coils and it will be fitted next to the voltmeter connection

    enjoy the pics and my messy work and would love to hear your feedback and thoughts









    adding the ohmmeter and cleaning up the wiring







    hope you guys like it

    Man, DEATHGUYJ , that's genius, I'm going to really like having you around. We have a company here that gives cheap volt meters away sometimes as a freebie. I'm going to try to pick on up when I'm there and they are doing that again to do this.

    Why does it read your resistance of the atomizer in the off position though?

    thanks guys its good to see you guys appreciate it and the reason the reading is slightly off is that it is also measuring the internal resistance of the wiring and connector wich in my case is .3 so I just subtract that amount for the close to true reading more expensive meters can zero this value so you don't have to worry about it

    good to hear man let us know how you get along and maybe chuck up a pic of the finished unit

    and just a quick note to read the voltage left in the ego battery you have to put your ego in to unregulated mode instead of the standard mode as that will only show the voltage of when it's firing or lower if the battery is below regulated amount

    If you look closely, the indicator is in the 20 ohm position...strange to see the beveled end not the indicator as I thought the same.
