ok, so got down to some experimenting tonight,
I had a while 100ft roll of kantahl a1 32 AWG (.2mm). I wrapped a coil 6 wrap on some 3mm silica wick in a spheroid, came out to be 2ohm. Slapped on my provari and vaped at 4V.....man the vapor was weak.
Remade another coil on my second spheroid with some nichrome 34 AWG? (i know its .16mm), 4 wrap on some 3mm silica wick, came out at 2ohm. Slapped it on my second provari vaped at 4V and man, that was the vape i was used to. Good flavor and lotsa vapor.
Why the variation in vape considering it was the same wick same ohm coil and same power?
any techies out there that can help me out? need to order some more wire since i been giving it out to my group who have gotten into RBAs and i don't wanna steer them the wrong direction.
Was looking at some kanthal a1 38 SWG (.15mm) wire (from the mesh company) ...dunno if its the nature of kanthal compared to nichrome. But i did notice when i was torching the kanthal compared to nichrome, i can hold the flame to the kanthal without it melting and snapping compared to the nichrome which i founds appealing and gets rid of any break in time. With the nichrome i have to torch and then dry burn.
If i can get some advice as to the difference of vape, might go and get me 100 ft of the 38 SWG kanthal to replace my nichrome and be torch happy with no worries
PS sorry for the confusing title, i had to go google the AWG/SWG to remember which wires i was using. Ignore the SWG numbers in the title and use the AWG in the body (besides the last SWG (38 SWG) for the .15mm kanthal reference)
