    Hi, I have a rsq squonk mod. Currently using ghoul rda with generic nickel coil. Saw something about stagger fused clampton and that this provides best flavour. I don't know much about compatibility and most important is safety - i just use the wattage mode only as don't know much about modifying for temperature settings. Can I use this coil with the rsq? Will it work for all rdas (also thinking of getting dead rabbit rda)? Any differences in installing than the nickel one? Also, did all rdas have same connection, e.g. Can I use 22m or 24m rda with rsq?
    Thanks

    Wow, long question
    First of all, I don't think the "generic" coils you're using is nickel, but rather Ni80 which is nichrome, big different.
    The staggered fused clapton is a way you build an elaborate coil. The important part you should be watching out if the resistance ie. how many ohm. If it's too low then I don't recommend.
    Nowadays, almost all atomizers, rda included, uses what we call a 510 connection so yes, any rda would work.
    Mentioning the 22 or 24 (or 25 and up) is the diameter of the rda itself, the diameter at the base.
    Hope this helps.

    Don't waste you money on a Dead Rabbit. You also should do some more research on your own to understand more about what you're asking.

    Stop telling people that. Instead tell them your experience.

    I feel the exact opposite. Get a dead rabbit. It's a kick ass vape, extremely versatile ( squonking and dripping) which many RSAs lack.

    I go from squonking everyday all day, back to dual parallel. The dead rabbit is such a good rda. One of if not my favorite dual coil atomizer. I'm also rather fond of the pulse because while it's not better in terms of versatility, it squonks so well. I will say it gets rather hot if you start to chain vape.

    Geez, I know your gonna get your panties in a bunch over this post but I feel like you might be better heard if you gave your fact based experience with the dead rabbit.

    You love the drop, and have cited that it's close to a rabbit if I'm not mistaken. I'll tell you this, the drop is not bad, but doesn't hold a candle to the quality of air control you have to the DR.

    To me, it's another RDA that I don't hate but don't like, and since people were kind to me when I started Vaping, I gave it away.

    This also has allot to do with how your using the dead rabbit. I like the kryten I have but understand why people don't like them. I just have a hard time understanding why you hate the DR so much. Was TVC your neighborhood best buddy or something? It's been said that heathen and TVC talked allot together while making these. They are closer, the rabbit edges this one out by a mile in terms of quality and flavor.

    I'll chime in just to add further proof of how subjective vaping can be. By all reports the RSQ is a terrific mod. You should be able to use almost any squonking RDA you choose. AS for the coil, make sure it's within the safe firing resistance range for the mod and you should be fine.

    I have both the dead rabbit and the drop. They are both very good. I prefer to vape single coil and, for me, the drop edges out the DR in single coil. Now throw in the made for single coil dead rabbit SQ and the comparisons get a lot closer. Both squonk very well for me and I've yet to get any of them to leak. With the right coil, power, and juice for you you'll have a satisfying vape.

    As to which has the best flavor? unfortunately you're likely to have to spend some money and find out for yourself. Fortunately none of these atomizers is all that expensive. When you ask which is best you will get as many opinions as there are members of this forum.

    BTW the Ghoul isn't a bad RDA either.

    I love my dead rabbit, flavor is great, and the airflow feels just right, also as close to leakproof as they get.

    Thanks so much everyone!

    @centella4u Yes I did just make assumption the Ni in Ni80 stood for nickel o_O - thanks for correction. That is one Im using and sounds like it is probably just best to stick with it and not get too elaborate - I am happy with current setup so should probably stay within my lane, so to say.

    @Zohmbiebuilds Thanks for the detailed advice...I think dual coil may be a bit advanced for me and think I prefer the advantages of the single coil over the dual coil. But I think DR SQ single coil is worth trying out.

    @DonBaldy Seems like I may need to have more knowledge in the area to get more elaborate than my current set up - my current knowledge is limited to replicating what the vape store guys did for my current setup. Although I have little point of comparison except smoking and a joye vape pen (which sucked and was in no way a smoking substitute), the RSQ has been awesome and working well with the Ghoul (I was pretty sold on the geekvape athena before purchase but the vape store guys said, despite its great reviews, they had had many returned and some connection issues with them...they highly recommended the RSQ over any other regulated squonk mod and both had themselves shifted to the RSQ since it came on the market). Since starting with the RSQ I haven't touched a cigarette, or even felt like a cigarette, so it has been able to serve its purpose very well. I guess I was just seeing if I could get even fancier with my setup.

    The ghoul with Ni80 coil has been really good so far - although I just found out that, with the ghoul having the airflow holes further down, you should keep the coil legs a bit longer and bend the coil a bit so it sits in line with these holes, and since changing it the flavour has improved even more. I am also waiting for my second set of juices to arrive so I can really test it properly (my first set of flavours were a rush buy to ensure I had them for when I got the squonk and I wasn't blown away by them - I only did little research and settled for cosmic fog and black note) - since then I did heaps of research into juices and decided to try out kais, virgin vape and vaporfi (got a bunch of samplers from each and will be putting together full review of all flavours tested so far once I get the new batch).

    While I may not have really known what I was talking about, I did get a really clear answer as to what to do - stick with the Ni80 coil and try out the dead rabbit sq.

    Thanks again! :vino:

    Anytime. We all started somewhere. I've been vaping about 3 years and still consider myself a noob. I've spent a lot of time just reading through many, many threads oh this and other forums. I've burned up the internet watching tons of videos on everything from coil building to gear reviews. I try to find gear in local shops to put eyes and hands on it. Not always possible. Start small. Not everything will work for you. You've taken the first step and it's helped you put down the cigarettes. The hard part is not going back to them. Good luck to you.

    That was how I first built - when the first (and only) handmade coil I had was finally no good, I carefully made a new one duplicating what the guy made who sold me the RSA. Might seem lame to some, but it is valid, works and is safer than what I've seen many others do through the years, lol

    My advise is to buy some wire ... and use a coil building tool like steam-engine.org to model builds in advance.

    Claptons product high quantity if flavor because they vaporize high quantity of juice....

    With the RDA ohm is of no real matter. .. to low mod doesn't fire same for too high.... power output may be affected by ohm also.... in that it limits the range of max power based on the mids abilities to create voltage.

    Coil mass determines heat.... coil ohm determines amp draw and volt required to reach a specific wattage.

    I really appreciate the fact that you pointed out exactly how I helped you. That is cool.

    As for being too advanced, if you can build one up can build two. That's just my opinion. My advice is the way I learned was put a coil in and install, take it out, put the other one in install. Add a bit of heat because it'll have your build freeze into position.

    I don't build like that anymore but that helped me in the beginning.

    If you like simplicity, and dense vapor try the recurve. Imo it's the best single coil I've ever tried because you have an atty that can go almost as wide open as a wasp, and tight as a nardA is when it's wide open.

    I hope this helps. The dead rabbit and drop are both very similar and probably the two easiest to install coils in. Just pre measure your leads, install, move coil close to AF so that that entire side and bottom is visible when you look through the air flow and your good

    I recommend staying away from the Dead Rabbit SQ. I love the Dead Rabbit, but don't like the DR SQ at all! The DR SQ has close to the weakest flavor out of all my RDAs. For a great single coil RDA, check out the Recurve. It produces great flavor and is perfect for squonking. I've had a Recurve on my RSQ for more than a month and it's my favorite RSA! Look around on here and on YouTube if you want more opinions on the Recurve, almost everyone is raving about the it!
