How to Choose the Right Coil

How to Choose the Right Coil

Coils play an important role in your vaping experience. They control the cloud and taste produced by your e-liquid.

A coil can be made using several different wires. There are four main types of wire used that are guaranteed to give you the best vaping experience: Kanthal, nickel wire, stainless steel, and Clapton. So how do you know which coil to choose? Well, it depends on the type of vaping experience you’re looking for and the type of mod you’re using. We’ve broken it down for you here:

Kanthal

This is the most common type of coil found in e-cigarettes. The wire material is high quality, which makes the coil more stable. If you’re seeking a more aggressive hit from your vape, stick with Kanthal coils.

Nickel Wire

Nickel wire (Ni200) is naturally of low resistance. Because the resistance rises dramatically when heated, nickel wire is commonly found in temperature controlled coils. Temperature controlled coils – like those used in our Reactor Shorty – personalize your vaping experience with individual coil temperature adjustments and a more advanced temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) mode.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel heats quickly, providing an instant hit. Like nickel wire, stainless steel is commonly used in temperature controlled coils – although it can also be used in wattage modes.

Clapton

A Clapton coil brings more surface area for heat transfer, which causes an increase in flavor and cloud production. The design of Clapton coils is appealing to many vapers – a small wire wound around a larger wire.

When it comes to choosing your coils, there are two things to remember: a higher resistance will cause the wire to heat up slower but give you a better taste, and a lower resistance will cause the wire to heat up faster and produce a bigger cloud.

So, what will it be?

Are you looking for a stronger taste or bigger clouds? Now that we’ve broken down the different coils, is there one you want to try? Or, did you discover a new way to vape? Let us know in the comments below!
