I wonder what the resistance of his coil is??? Its possible that once he put the transformer with the high voltage on it it shorted out a few of the winds. Cause at 24v @ 83ma that takes 1.9 watts of power and at 27.2v @ 83ma thats 2.25 watts of power which isn't huge difference but i believe you would be able to feel the heat difference. Now if his coil resistance was higher then normal it could be pull more then the 83ma
