    Ti coils

    So I just received my evic mini and my Kayfun 4 and low ohm kit will be here this week.
    No I'm used to Kanthal coils, can someone give me a rundown on Ti?
    Wire gauge to use, simple coils etc etc for VT vaping?
    I know nothin about this having only really run a mech in the past.

    Ti coils

    I hope to be getting a kayfun soon, it looks to be a small deck.
    With Ti you need them spaced yet more wraps keeps the heat flux down a bit. Assuming the KF has similar deck size as the Subtank mini RBA I used 28GA and as many turns as I can fit and still keep spacing.
    That proved very difficult until I watched and followed the process Vaping Pauly uses for shaping Ti coils on YouTube. It's much easier to get the coil right before putting it in than screwing it on them trying to stroke and pinch.

    Also, with the Evic Minis SS wire is also an option for TC

    I used 24 and 26 gauge ti - in TC with the vtc mini in the past. I wound tight coils on it fine.

    Then I'd run it on low watts (8-10W light pulses in regular power mode, to get a faint glow, dont do this at high watts though!) and squeeze and strum similar to what you do with kanthal now, to get that inner to out glow. Let it cool down to room temp and then lock the resistance and switch it to TC. With the VTC mini, if the resistance goes lower than what you locked it at, thats the new default so dont fuss over that side of it too much.

    With TC and ti, i did what i did with ni200 before that and 316L SS now, start conservative on watts and temp, then scale up until you find the sweet spot. I found i kept the watts fairly low, but had the temp up slighlt higher for a warmer vape.

    When life throws you lemons, vape lemonade.


    I like simple. If it's not simple, I don't like it.

    26g spaced coils are gonna be your best bet when starting out.
