    Recently I've started building coils. I used the kanthal that came with my ud kit to practice and have 10ft of nicrome 26ga that I use in my mods/rda's.

    I live 100mi away from my closest vape shop and it's selection is terrible.

    Can anybody recommend what would be useful in terms of types of wires and gauges.

    I currently make parallel coils and two and three core twisted coils.

    Thank you [​IMG]

    Lightning vapes has a good selection.

    Most people who build regular round coils use 24ga and 26ga kanthal and 316 stainless wire.

    You can get 100 feet of each pretty cheap.

    All alloys have there pros and cons. Nichrome seems to gunk up, and dry burning and water dunking seem to kind of damage the coils faster than wire kanthal but the metal is imo the best for found wire builds. I love nichrome60 to be more specific. Kanthal you can build bigger and more surface space but slower ramp up time that NC or SS.


    If I could pick one metal to use for the rest of my life it would be Nichrome. Kanthal 2nd, and SS 3rd.

    I do however really like SS 316l 28g hive coils. But I have really been getting back into the simple life.

    If your doing parallels or round build stock up on kanthal and Nichrome. 22g -28g. 24g Nichrome is perfect for parallels
