A Closer Look At Vape Coil Wire Types
If you're keen to build your own coils, you'll need to know about the different types of wire and tools that you'll need to get started. Choosing the wrong type of wire to suit your device could be a serious error, so this guide will help to prevent you from making a mistake.
The good news is that, although it sounds quite complicated, finding the right wire for vaping isn't as difficult as it seems. All types of wire share certain characteristics, whatever they are made from. All types of wire are defined by their gauge, with its diameter becoming small as its number increases, and as the diameter becomes smaller, so its resistance increases.
Which Coils Can Be Used For TC Vaping?
There are three kinds of coils which can be used for TC vaping: Titanium, Nickel and Stainless Steel. Stainless steel wire can also be used for wattage vaping, however kanthal and nichrome wire can only be used for wattage vaping. At VapingZone, we also have Japanese Organic Cotton.
Kanthal is, by far, the most popular and commonly available coil type, however it is only suited to wattage vaping while nickel is also commonly available but is suited solely to TC mode.
Experimenting With Vape Coils
By experimenting and changing your wire type and gauge, you can enjoy better control over your vaping experience. By varying the number of wraps, the materials of your wire and its diameter, you can find the perfect combination to suit your requirements. You may also need to try different configurations with different atomizers, so flexibility is key.
What Do You Need To Know About Kanthal?
Kanthal wires are the oldest and most popular option for making coils. Made from aluminium, chromium and iron alloy, it resists oxidation well making it ideal for wattage vaping. Kanthal maintains its shape well however it remains easy to work with. It is also cost effective and easy to buy.
What Do You Need To Know About Nickel?
Nickel wire is sometimes known as Ni200 wire and is made out of pure nickel. Suitable only for TC vaping, this kind of wire is very soft so, although it is easy to work with, it may not make uniform coils very easily. Anyone with a nickel allergy should also be aware that they could have a problem with this coil type.
What Is A Clapton Coil?
Clapton wire is made from kanthal and consists of a wire at its core with a thinner gauge wire wrapped around it. Clapton coils are popular as they improve cloud production, boost flavor and last longer. The larger surface area is the reason for all of these benefits since more wire is exposed to the material.
