    Clapton coils - are they really the best coil style?

    I keep hearing that clapton coils are the top of the list when it comes to building on drippers.

    Are these really the best coils? I've heard they tend to burn out a lot quicker than thicker twisted wire coils.

    Does anyone here have the lowdown on these? I'm thinking of ordering a 10-pack 0.5ohm but unsure as to how good or reliable they really are. They look very nice!

    Definitely worth a go! I tried and tried with kanthal but hated everything about it. Bought a 5 pack of UD comp wire Clapton coils and have been loving it!! However, it's a thicker wire and there's been a couple RDAs I've used with smaller post holes that won't fit Clapton.

    It depends on your vaping style. It might be the best for some peoole but you might think it's crap...

    Claptons can be great, i dont have any experience with pre-wound coils but some reviewers say they are the bees knees.
    Claptons are good for getting loads of juice to your coil, and i find they actually gunk up a lot less than other coils.
    As HandsomeStranger said though they do take up more space so if you have a small deck you might have issues. I have wound my own claptons and had them in a aromamizer which has a tiny deck and they performed very well in it.

    it depends on your vaping habit, there are many kinds of coil for your choice, such as Alien Coils, Flat Twisted Coils, Mix Twisted Coil...
    Recently, i think the Fused Coils is better for me.

    I got some 0.6ohm Claptons on a PIF recently and I have to say they have changed my mind about RBAs. I'm running duals on a Wotofo Atty3 and today I had it cranking at 45W 10mg/ml 60VG/40PG VE The Turk MTL. Simply Beautiful...

    I would say give them a try. Coils aren't exactly dear
