    Compiling database of Clapton wires and there uses.How to know how to use a particular clapton coil?

    Hello. I have tried quite a few Claptons but I went back to simple single strand coils because I didn't think they where any improvements in any aspect of the vape other than the time-wasting aspect... But then I found out that winding a Clapton with ~0.315mm SS316 inner wire and 0,09mm...

    Clapton issues

    So I tried my hand at making some Clapton wire today (24g N80 x 36g n80) and it went incredibly well. Aside from when I went to wrap the coil, the outside wire kept springing out and spacing out. Any tips or tricks as to fixing this? I've heard torching your wire helps with springy-ness. I'm...

    Which wire to buy for claptoning and normal builds

    So, I have a Voopoo Drag and a Vgod TTP Clone, and I would like to start claptoning normally (I did a clapton, but the ramp up was horrible, it was a 26/28 ss316 build...). So, I thought I will buy some ss wire for the core and kanthal for the clapton (because it's cheaper xD), and I don't know...

    What's more important, coil build or wicking tricks, for flavor?

    My go-to build is wrapping SS 316L, 24g, staggered fused claptons. Oh, such flavor. I always build dual coil builds, very low ohm (around 0.11). I get tremendous flavor this way, and they say SS is the most health-conscious wire. So, do you guys think it's more important to make the perfect...

    What kind of builder are you?

    Just wondering how many people still build coils of their own, since I know specialty wires come on 50 foot spools for dirt cheap now and premade alien coils are sold in brick and mortars.
