    For flavour? For clouds?

    Do you have any particular wire? Are you looking to build your own coils or buy some already made?

    I'm looking to buy coils that are already pre-made

    — Planning to buy from fasttech or 3fvape if that helps

    They won't do well, I'm afraid, in dual coil. They really need about 70 watts mininum, being 3x26g, and that will run down a one battery mod very very fast. However, if you use them single coil, 50 watts will do it easily, and that will last longer.

    Newbie in rda builds here;
    What difference would it make if it were a single/dual coil build?

    Also, does a dual coil build work well on 80w? Or would it require more wattage for it to work WELL? Because I won't mind changing the batteries very often if I 80w is good!

    80 watts is fine. Although it really depends on whether or not you like a really warm vape. I have a pair of aliens in my Scottua that I vape every day at 75 watts.

    Those coils (dual coils) will vape great at 80 watts - the problem isn't the maximum wattage limit, but rather the limited run time that one single battery can supply that much power. You can get probably 3 times more vaping time at like 45 watts compared to 80 watts, if you only have one battery.

    80 watts would be fine if you had two batteries (battery voltage goes down as they get used, and they just cant put out their full power for very long before they "sag" a lot)

    I don't think i'd care much for the warmth as long as it still delivers a good flavour. Thanks!

    Sorry, I don't know what sag means, but would constantly using a 1 batt mod at 80 watts affect the batteries badly in long term?

    Also does a one coil build have less flavour/clouds than a double coil build?

    Sorry I rushed that last read and answer, was really distracted - if you dont mind changing batteries a lot then yep go for those coils!
