people tend to talk in terms of voltage and resistance when discussing the finer points of ecigs but these are only shorthand/variables for hat is really important, wattage. wattage is the power of the vape or something silly like that, it affects the vapour produced, the heat, the flavour etc etc.. everything basically.
when you vape a 2ohm coil(atomiser) at 4 volts you (through a piece of magic known as ohms law) are vaping at a wattage(power) of 8 watts/
when you vape a 3ohm coil at 4.9 volts you are also vaping at 8 watts.
all other things being equal, in theory, vaping a 2ohm coil at 4 volts and a 3ohm coil at 4.9 volts will be the same in terms of the vape itself and what it feels like to you as a vaper. The main difference between the two is the current supplied by the batteries to achieve this wattage.
with the 2ohm coil at 4 volts the battery is supplying current at a rate of 2amps
with a 3ohm coil at 4.9 volts (same wattage remember) the battery is supplying current at a rate of 1.67 amps.
this basically means that the 3ohm coil at 4.9 volts will drain your battery slower than the 2ohm coil at 4 volts, so you'll get longer out of it before you need to recharge.
this is why if you have a variable voltage mod it's probably best to use the higher ohm/higher volt option to vape. even though the wattage will be the same with a lower/lower option.. you'll get quite a bit more out of your battery before it needs changing/charging and in theory the vape will be the same either way (in practice this might not neccesarily be the case as no 2ohm cartos are exactly the same, let alone 2ohm and 3ohm cartos)

hi there, I am probably posting in the wrong section but here goes. I have been using E-Cigs since July and I am well pleased with it. I use Joye ego-T 1000mah with cartomizer. The question that I have is as follows, I have two batteries on the go at the moment. I have three batteries that I have not used since purchase, will they be ok or should I use them in rotation?

I'm not a vendor, I was under the impression this thread was for linking to things for new e-cig users. I thought starter kits would be nice for new users. Didn't know it wasn't allowed.

I can highly recommend Smokex, started using in January and haven't smoked a cigarette since - http://www.smokex.ie/

from looking at the smokex site it looks like it's not a 510 connection
