The latest project I'm working on is making adapter to basically use the mains for an ecig rather than usb or an battery. For anyone whos familiar with ECIGS they basically use around 3.7-6volts. It's my understanding that the resistance in the coil a ecig determines the required amps, for example:
3.7 volts with coil resistance of 3 ohm you will use around 1.233 amps. This is 4.56 watts.
3.7 volts with coil resistance of 4.5 ohm you will use around 1.233 amps. This is 4.56 watts.
6.0 volts with coil resistance of 3 ohm you will use around 2 amps. This is 12 watts.
6.0 volts with coil resistance of 4.5 ohm you will use around 1.333 amps. This is 8 watts.
The step down I'm using is rated as so:
Input voltage range:4-40V
Adjustable output voltage range:1.25-37V
The ac/dc adapter I'm using is rated:
INPUT: 220-240v AC 50Hz 350mA
OUTPUT: 12v DC 750mA
Question: If I step down an input of 12v with 750mA to say 6v does the 750mA max remain the same or does this change because the voltage is lower? if so how much would it increase by and what is the forumula when down stepping.
... Apologies if this question has been asked time and time again, I'm sure it has but searching through all the step down questions I couldn't find an appropriate answer or question, only that of increasing voltage.
