    Ive read about kanthal being the only type of wire that is safe to dry burn , another heads up. Might go back to kanthal for this reason alone, sure i cant use tc and stay under that 450-70f safe limit but almost certain i am never vaping anywhere near that heat

    Sorry was at work when I posted. Like the others 26 gauge seems to work best for me. Im running Dual coils at around .5 ohms on a limitless plus RDTA. Only been building simple coils so far nothing special as I am aiming at getting consistency (the only thing "special" I have done is build spaced coils). I generally run any where between 40 to 65 watts, depending on day/time/mood, I like an aggresive hit so I have found out so ymmv.

    Same for me 26 SS 316L I use the Geek Vape stuff which is great in my opinion, nothing fancy but I always space it. Haven't done unspaced since I stopped using the Kfun ages ago.

    I plan to use the old VW mode for now as I can't be bothered (at the moment) with learning how TC works. I'm a DTL person too so I might get the 24ga (as the 26ga is not available anymore unfortunately).
    Currently using a Charon with the Troll V2 22mm RDA. Still waiting for my OBS engine RTA to arrive. These are all noob friendly gear as I am just new to building, learning as I go! I want to try the "cleaner" taste people are saying they get from SS builds but not sure what specific build to make.
    I agree with most of what has been said so far.

    I'd still recommend 26g to have in your toolbox, even if it means you have to go with a different (brand) wire. I'm using MKWS wire which is available from Fasttech for AU$3.30 for 30 feet including free snail mail postage. ($2 extra per shipment will get you Australian expedited which takes 7-10 days)

    The MKWS is bang on the 092 TCR pretty well and is consistent, and should be available in all gauges. I'd recommend you get 28/26/24 gauges. I don't bother with 10 foot spools, the cost saving isn't worth it, although I am yet to use up *any* 30 foot spool I've ever bought. I still have some of the 32g Kanthal I bought four years ago.

    28g for MTL coils of 1 ohm or more. Also works well for twisted wire builds instead of the 26g
    26g for single coil RDAs and RTAs running at 18 watts up to 35 watts on a regulated mod or a mech (2.5mm coil)
    24g for larger RDAs and larger builds generally - 3mm coils and larger

    Eventually you may need different wires for different builds - very thin wires (32,34g etc) for making claptons and other wires. I'd recommend you don't worry too much about that yet. Get your vape sorted first, then worry about the coil experimentation if you are so inclined.

    How many wraps per coil? Been wanting to do a similar build to this!

    Is this the simple round wire? I found some SS geek vape fused Clapton wires too, which seems great.

    Might try MKWS if I'm not happy with the UD one. I purchased the 24ga for now

    You think it's okay to build 24g 7-8 wraps dual coil 3.5mm on an OBS engine? Resulting to 0.2ohms, vaped at 70W

    I'm just worried I'd burn my wick because I've read people saying you cannot chain vape with SS coils? (On VW mode)

    I use 3 mm 26 gauge ss in my (4) OBS nanos at 0.3 ohms and never have wicking problems. You dont need 3.5mm its probably a bit large. The only reason you would burn your wicks is if they are stuffed to hard into the juice ports blocking the flow to the coils

    VW or TC mode?

    This seem better? 3 mm 24 gauge dual coils 6 wraps each 0.15ohms - 53W

    Sure is FS, I do love using Clapton, Tiger, Alien clapton, Flat twisted, Quad, Hive and Mix twisted coils depending on my mood but lately I've been using the Geek vape Juggernauts in Stainless for really pronounced flavor.
