    depressed...

    So I got a new atty in today and at the same time I grabbed a roll of fused clapton wire to play with. I think I kinda fucked up when ordering it though and didn't think it though enough.

    What I ordered was 24gx2 32g. Without think the calculations through I didn't realize how low that was gonna push it. Dual coils with 5 wraps was down in the 1.2 territory. Way too hot for me me, my comfort zone is usually .4-.5. Since it's so damn big I can't really fit any more wraps in there, it's snug enough as it is. Damn!


    Guess I gotta order some more wire...

    That's a shame. I've always had a problem the other way - I realise I should have ordered thicker stuff. Historically it is undertandable though - 32g single coils were the norm when I started. We thought even 26g was insane.

    Yep, order more wire. If you need something right now though, just strip out a piece of 24g and coil something with that.

    Sometimes youre a bit screwed either way

    In a moment of pointless exploration (because i already knew that a single coil in the Avo was best) i whacked in a dual coil build the other night...2 of my usual 7 wrap 26g 316 ss on 3mm coils (usually around the 0.6ohm mark) and ended up of course with 0.31 ohms

    The upside: It ramps up quicker than if you use thicker gauges - the ramp up on thicker wires sends me into a haterant....

    The downside: It needs 50-70c more (than my usual 180c-200c) just to produce the vapour i get out of a single 0.6ohm coil... needless to say ive got the chuff tip on...

    Back last year in my foray into mechs, lowest i went was 0.08... by accident.

    the whole thing was a nightmare, took 4hrs to build the coil, the coil was so big only 1 of my RDA's could fit it.
    i was aiming for 0.1, the ohm meter said 0.1. The 2 samsung 25r's felt differently.
    vent, burnt a finger and my lips.

    important lessons were learned, 1. Samsung 25rs handle vents well, 2. i dislike mechs with metal buttons, 3. im no longer blowing $30 a fortnight on wire to trial coils

    Edit: i forgot to add, depending on how tight the wrap is, you might be able to use a drill and unwind it and use the 24 as a twisted coil.

    Wait - dual coil 5 wraps was 1.2ohms?? If so, send it here! That's Provari city right there.

    If you mean 0.1 or 0.2, send it to Cams or chuck it in the bin
