    Kanthal Wire?

    Hi all, quick question, is Kanthal wire the only thing you can use to build coils?

    Cheers

    You can use nichrome which is thinner and in my experience far more fragile as far as blowing coils.

    Ah ok, thanks. I just see Kanthal being thrown around when talking about building coils. Cheers for the info.

    there is this stuff called "non resistance wire" that is sometimes used in the more complicated types of rebuildable atomisers...but that's probably not what you're after.



    I don't need squat for ages, i just went shopping.
    $1800.61 Spent on Vaping so far, stocked up for 2 years @ 8ml/per day.

    Nah, non resistance is just that, the only time it's used is if the negative and positive terminals are far away from the coil. Otherwise you would risk shorts and/or have a really high resistance.

    I actually built a pair of coils yesterday for my immortaliser using nr/r/nr wire. It means I can have two coils the same regardless of leg length.
    My biggest fear is that I might die and my missus will sell my vape gear for what I told her it cost

    Yeah for stuff like that it's fine, but you couldn't make a coil with it.

    yeah I lived all my life without it but once you buy a zapper you tend to look for excuses to use it. Its just that the new toy shine hasnt worn off yet.
