    Does your mod do temp. control (TC)? I ask because this thread is posted in the TC sub-forum. If so, you'd want to set the temperature, not the wattage...something in the neighborhood of 450 deg. F or 230 deg. C and then work from there. If you are able to set the type of coil (e.g., stainless, titanium, etc.), you'll have to check the coil composition and set it in the mod. These are just general guidelines...check the literature that came with the mod/atty (if any) and do some research online for your specific setup.

    If you're doing straight watt/power control, others will have to chime in...I only do low power MTL vaping (10-12 watts @ 1.8 ohms) but I'd suspect you'd start around 20-25 watts and work your way up until you find your sweet spot.

    I agree with @Siam Diesel, start at 25 watts and go up from there in 2-3 watt increments. I did a bit of math, and using a standard decent battery with a nominal voltage of 3.7 volts, the sweet spot should be right at 27.38 watts. Your milage may vary.
