    Hello,

    Is it possible to lock resistance in power mode so that my mod behaves more like a variable voltage device? I’m trying to simulate the vape I get from my mech mod. I use SS316L coils in my RDA so as the resistance increases throughout the puff I want the power at the coil to decrease gradually. It seems to give me a much nicer vape.

    Or maybe there is a better way?

    Thanks

    Hello!

    No, it is not. But native variable voltage mode is present for some devices: Joyetech Espion Solo, Wismec Luxotic MF, all devices running RedPanda and all supported STM32-based. What mod do you mean?

    You can try to use preheat to "emulate" punch on cold SS coil. It may be fixed with regain/delay or smooth power curve.

    Thanks for the advice...

    So using 3.7v in the equation with a 0.19ohm SS316L coil my mech would initially fire at 72w tapering to 57w at the end of a 3s puff with a final resistance of 0.24ohms. With this software can I set a smooth power curve to emulate this?

    Yep. For example:

    With power set to 57 W output will start from 57x1.27 = 72.4 W.

    So once ive set the power curve how do i actually apply it to a profile?
