    It's only stupid if u set your power to 80W thinking that's the best way to glow.. Sometimes ppl who know better just arent paying
    attention to what they are doing... LOL

    You will run into assholes who say you are spreading disinformation when you say never glow your SS coils red.

    I've set aside my triade 200 as my build mod. Allows me to also check tc. And it is always set at 20W.

    Haha. I use it for comparison too. When I get an new mod I can see if the wattage and tc is accurate compared to the Triade. Otherwise I have no use for it as I don't like triple 18650 mods.

    I use a mech as a build stand and coil burnner....... I get the wattage the battery provides.... my finger regulates how much that wattage heats the coil....
    I've dry burned many a coil at 80 watts never had one pop.....without a tool or stray bit of wire being to blame.

    Wattage isn't the issue here. Lack of fine motor control IS.

    One reason why I stick to Kanthal A1 or Nichrome80 (or the combination of both) for my advanced coil builds is I just don't like having to throw them away after using them for only about a day or 3. I rinse, then dry burn my coils till they glow orange, and in fact I repeat this process a few times before I let them cool down and start to re-wick them so it would just be impossible to do this with SS.

    I use and still love A1 [not the sauce ;)] but I also love temp control on some of my higher end mods. I do dry burn and clean my SS, just not like A1. I do a very light pulse rinse and repeat. I use a little brush to help clean them

    Like These:

    Now they dont look like 100% new coils (like an A1 burn and dunk) as SS changes color. But they are better than they were before the cleaning.

    It does allow me to get a little more life from them. The price is cheap enough now many will just toss SS and rebuild or toss in a prebuilt. But for those waiting to try / use them and not recoil every time they can be cleaned up to some degree.

    SS is fine to pulse red (been doing it a long time), just don't go beyond that. SS releases toxic at it's melting point which is white. Hell I don't even heat Kanthal beyond red either.

    Yes, I agree you can pulse them red. They just wear out WAY too fast for my liking... it would be fine if I could be happy with simple (parallel) round wire builds I guess, but personally I am not.
