    Kanthal or Titanium

    Hey Guys,
    About to order some wire for my first coil build after being an idiot last night while sleep deprived and messing up my TFV4 RDA
    Basically I'm going with either kanthal 22 AWG or 22 AWG titanium wire
    My question is...
    Is 22 too big, from my understanding the lower the AWG the bigger the wire, the bigger the wire the more heat is needed, which comes with the need of more air flow for bigger clouds (correct me if I am wrong)
    I also believe titanium is only usable on a TC Mod, is this true
    I will be purchasing a resistance tester (thats what theyre called right?)
    Is 22 gauge to large for a single coil vertical build?
    As far as wicking for cloud chasing whats the best option?
    Is there an amount of wraps too stay away from?
    I have been reading others builds, learning about ohm laws, the itaste 3.0 pro can read as low as .08 from memory, what happens if i get something lower?

    Sorry for all the questions and if this is in the incorrect place, trying to do this as safe as possible.

    I think you may have to slow down a little mate, before something goes bang. Starting with 22g builds could only lead to trouble.

    resistance in the build would be very low mate, unless you have a decent mod (not itaste) and don't understand the limits of your batteries something is going to go boom!

    Read a whole lot more mate, start small and work your way up. Plenty of in depth video tutorials on youtube too.

    This is something I did consider, hence why I brought it too the board, i'll jump back to the drawing board on doing this properly (the itaste is only here for another week, chasing something better after that...)

    Cheers though bud.

    Get some 28 g kanthal. Good place to start.
    After you have mastered 28g coils move down.
    You can always make twisted coils.

    The next I was considering was 26G, but, I will take a look either way

    Safety issues aside 22g is a pain to build with, I would stick with 28 until you have wrapped a few coils as it is much more flexible and you wont end up throwing your tank out the window after the tail pops out of the post hole the zillionith time.

    When you are comfortable wrapping 28 standard coils you can start doing 28 twisted or parallel coils to get the resistance down while still working with a nice forgiving gauge of wire.
