    It's odd isn't it? I used to use 2.5mm coils too but it's 3mm mostly now for rta and rda these days.

    I was doing 2.5mm in the RTA for a while... but prefer 3 for ease of wicking.

    RE: 3mm dia. coils for a 24 mm RDA

    with the cotton that i use (native wicks or vapers choice), if I split them lengthwise I get a right amount of thickness per coil.

    2.5 mm works well for a 22mm.

    Isn't it funny how things are horses for courses. I run a 3.5mm id in my pulse 22. I find thats where i get my best flavor after trying many different setups. If i had a duel coil though i cant imagine putting duel 3.5 in as the ramp would be horrific.

    So... last night, I decided to build some parallel coils. Nothing fancy... just dual 26AWG Kanthal, 6 wrap.
    Clocks in at 0.2ohm (with fluctuations from 0.19 - 0.21)... and vapes like a dream.
    Parallel vs single coils - it's pretty much RDA vs RTA all over again by comparison.
    NB - sorry the photo is shitty. My phones camera does a shit job since the lens cover glass fell out...

    It's fairly subjective the whole coil thing. Horses for courses though. I love single coil RTA as they're easy to build on and so forth. But I have plenty of dual coil setups. Love them. Coils themselves are very much personal preference. I've used everything from plain round wire through to more complex builds (as seen randomly elsewhere in here). Currently I'm running a single coil fused alien that comes in at 0.5ohms and it's great.. 45w and everything I want!
