    dna 40

    hi I put a dna 40 chip in a hana clone I had but cant source any pure nickel non resistant wire from Aus I did however order some pure silver non resistant wire, should be here tomorrow. does anyone here know if the silver wire will work for the temperature mode on the dna 40?

    I don't think the silver wire will work at all.

    Nickel has some resistance, admittedly quite low as compared to kanthal, where as silver is one of the best conductors of electricity.

    Basically a coil made from silver wire is in essence a hard short.

    As Nakor said, to get the temperature protection it has to be Nickel wire. Nothing else. They've specifically tuned the chip to recognize how nickel reacts under temperature.

    Given the number of obsessive-compulsive AVF members out there you should be get a meter if you ask on the forum.
