Eleaf iPower 80w question?
Just got one of these and I'm a bit confused, I am just using bog standard kantal wire so what setting do I leave it on? It has loads of setting for various metals nickel etc then we have temperature control, as I say I just want it on bog standard wattage. Any ideas?

Click main button 3 times quick, then scroll through to wattage and press the main button again to set. Adjust the wattage and away you go. :-)

To add to what's already been said, TC mods sense the coil's electrical resistance change as the wire heats up, and use that change to set temperature. The amount of change in resistance per degree varies with different metals, hence the options.

Kanthal's resistance hardly changes with temperature, so can't be used in TC mode, hence just use watts, power mode.
