    made an order for some coils this morning from someone here pretty excited about that, looking forward to REAL coils. so on with it. for months I always just bought these coils.
    buuuuuut, what happens when you have a looksie inside? a single ribbon, and on top of that what removing the outer wrap it flakes off!!! that can't be good! especially after they have been vaped on for a while. when you clean them hot ember fly off which tells me it's the wire flaking. fuck this sucks. and can't be healthy. these people selling these on eBay for $8 pop seems like a deal, well it's not worth the health risk. no idea if the wire is even kanthal... could be anything. Coated with lead or God knows what. stay away from these kind of coils. I can say the demon coils, or the 48pc coil packs with the different types is legit but these are not. and their not even aliens.
    I'm going to ask the seller to give me my money back because I am not using these. unless someone here thinks these are safe? I've never had coils shoot sparks (tiny metal embers) when cleaning it by glowing and scraping. then rinsing and doing it again. other coils have never don't that. so you be the judge. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I would post the seller. I only buy from certain coil builders on eBay. My 2 favorites are crazytwists and wickedtwistedbuilds. Have bought others but have been concerned and disappointed just like you.

    That's why you gotta make your own. Might take a bit of time to get the hang of it, but you not only save a lot money, you know exactly what you're getting!

    Can you tell me if pure vapors is legit or not? I had gotten a few from them last week and would like to know before I use them. When I got my order it came with a note saying e-bay was making all stop selling coils.

    Im sorry, Worcester Ma. Its www.PureCoils.com, I didn't know if the price was fair or not, and hadn't thought about the possibility of fake wire. Just to vulnerable.

    I've had a pack that looks exactly the same as those, they were not aliens either, but they vaped OK and did not look as bad as yours.

    As I got mine from China for about 50P for the pack, I wasn't too bothered, if I had bought them for more though expecting high quality coils I would not be happy. Do get in touch with the vendor, and see what they say.

    I remember a friend had them too, and said he could clearly "See they were Aliens". They wasn't.

    purecoils is legit. he used to be a member here. people seemed to like his coils. there are a few people here that sell really good handmade coils using only good quality wire. I've gotten quite a few from @b_d_builders and they are awesome and last a long time

    I bought some coils from crazytwist and they were priced great and looked even better. The only problem was the flavor was muted and didn't feel right. So I messaged them and asked What kind of wire they use and no response. I haven't used them since. Did you have any issues like that?

    If I had a nickel for every time someone compared my aliens to these "aliens" I wouldn't need to be in the biz.

    I just purchased Demon Killer Violence Coils - Framed Clapton and Stapled Staggerd Fused Clapton from Vaporider.net since they had the Sigelei Swallowtail for $28. Has anyone purchased coils from them before?

    These are the same pre-wraps available at my local b&m, I haggled a deal for some juice, and got the owner to throw these on top..

    I don't know who makes these, but they have the funkiest metal taste. Not even worth using if free.

    I didn't experience and metal flaking, but I only used two of them, and very briefly, before tossing them in a drawer.

    I smoked 42 years so my lung are not the healthiest to begin with so I don't worry much about bad. I did buy a bunch of cheap coils like these from FastTech a few years ago. I have boxes full of new ones in about 30 different varieties. I have never had flaking you talk about. Pretty much only use Geek Vape premade wire on rolls now. I have tons of rolls of the prefab wire. I stopped buying vape stuff the past six months and figure wife and I can go for many MANY years with what I have on hand. I used to go into vape stores and think "WOW I have more in my bedroom than this store has".

    Aliens are something your not going to get in those wheel or 10 packs. The only real alien coils I've found on eBay where from actual coil builders.

    Chinese manufacturers are settling duel core Claptons as aliens lol, but the vape isn't bad. No TC, but still not bad. I keep a few in my bag, and a few I've wrapped in case of emergency.

    I have re coiled tons of buddy's set ups, im kinda like Clark Kent in AA, coils taste like crap I'll have the fucker back up n going in a flash. Lol
