    kanthal v nickel v titanium v SS. What to use?

    Ok guys and gals, I've been looking into what to use and on my Invader mini TC. The why's and what for's !!!

    I found a few things about this but still have no idea which way to go?

    I don't like some of the warnings I found either .... so I'm appealing to long term vapers for guidance.

    Thought I'd put a couple of the warnings I found!?!?! Been checking on lots of things but these are a worry!!!
    PS: I realise the chemicals are way more dangerous in the cigs but do I want to change one way for another!!!

    I would suggest rather than just looking at YouTube for information you should look at other forums and read up on the specific metal that you want to make coils from. I'm guessing the nickel video posted above is the bloke with the two lamps behind him
    If so then he is sprouting untruths
    Looking at the properties of the metals and finding out exactly how they behave would be key for me

    No idea on what's the best as I just use kanthal on a mech

    Thanks Brian but I have been looking every where, literally, .........and just wanted to know what members here thought and or use themselves.

    Also how are we suppose to know who's spouting untruths??? That's why I am asking.

    Kanthal for me never used or cared about Temp control. So Ive just stuck with kanthal.

    Titanium user here, I find the taste is so clean and resistance much lower.

    Would never use S/S as my Atties and posts are make of the same material....
    I always believed my Coils are like Fuse's I would rather pop a coil than explode a Battery.

    hope you can make more sense of this than me, it is not so much a "this wire vapes better" as it is a techie run down TC beyond Ni200: Nickel Purity, Dicodes; Ti, SS, Resistherm NiFe30; Coefficient of Resistance | E-Cigarette Forum

    no one knows for sure, best precaution you can take with any coil material is to avoid getting it red hot

    titanium is my choice as well, very easy to work with, can't see a good reason to use SS

    They have different characteristics when building coils.
    Once they've been installed for a while I can't really tell the difference between them.
    Ti lasts a long time, I have coils I made 3 months ago still running fine.

    I just searched for the actual metals I was thinking of using and ignored YouTube altogether. Titanium definitely seemed the least harmful from my own research and the temps needed to make it a worry are way beyond anything I'd use it at. However if I do forget I'm in normal wattage mode and fire a Ti coil then Woohoo! An excuse to build another coil better than the last one!!
    The other wires including ss are questionable to me just based on the elements that are used to create them. I'm aware however they 'probably' wouldn't harm me.

    I have switched to Ti from kanthal - taste is pretty invisible and the coils stay cleaner and don’t get pitted like kanthal does. On the negative, it is a bit of a pain to coil the thinner stuff and seems to have more schmeck from manufacturing than kanthal.

    I don’t use a TC mod, just a v2.5 provari - because it’s VV, the power drops as the wire heats (the resistance increases with heat so the current drops) - this is probably helping the coils stay cleaner.
