RE: Ribbon Kanthal Wire
Well that coil was on a single piece of 2mm wick , quite limited space on my Phoenix buy I could get a few more wraps on my igo but don't really see the need as any more wraps without doubling up on the wick I would guess it would struggle to keep up with feeding juice

RE: Ribbon Kanthal Wire
This stuff looks interesting, is it the same stuff thats in toasters? looks very similar at least - anyways, figured id get some more info about it, so say im going to be using it on a genesis SS wick, which size would be the most useful one, will be on a mech mod so resistance is going to be lowish anyway.

I've got .5 x .1mm - 30.2 ohms/meter

As reference .20mm Kanthal A wire is 44.2 Ohms/m & .25mm is 28.3 Ohms/m

A 4/5 wrap on a 2mm wick gives me around 1.2 Ohms.

All the specs here - page 50 onwards...

sod it I'm ordering some.

built a 2/3 turn (depending on how you count them - I say it's 3) coil tonight and it was still 1.7ohms.

defo need something the requires lots of turns for extra coverage while keeping the res low. wanna get down to about 1.3/4.

this post was written Tuesday at 11:53pm. I ordered the wire after I posted this.

it arrived this morning.

now that is some speedy service considering I also ordered some juices from vendors in the UK on Tuesday night too and they only arrived today also. their postage was only 40p less than the postage from Germany for the wire.

excellent.

tonight I shall be fiddling around with ribbon!! Smiling

RE: Ribbon Kanthal Wire
Mine turned up unexpectedly fast as well, ordered Sunday, turned up Tuesday, seems free postage is fast from Germany (unlike DHL which takes well over a week for 10 euro charge, must be a per day storage charge or something, definately not for deliverying stuff rapidly)

RE: Ribbon Kanthal Wire
Do you guys think it would work well in an Ody? (Specifically with the no-res connection)

RE: Ribbon Kanthal Wire
erm.....

my ribbon kanthal is catching fire??? Confused

just got in and excitedly set up a quick coil. about 7 turns is giving me 1.3ohms.

great.

had a few drips, etc. but was getting a funny taste and feeling in my throat.

took the cap off and fired my device and the f***ker set alight!!

not a big flame, just like a lighter. blow it out an it reignites.

WTF???

RE: Ribbon Kanthal Wire
hopefully.

I've binned the coil anyway cos I'd tried a few new juices and it was a big mix of nastiness.

new coil seems fine.

getting tonnes of vapour and TH off this wire with a juice a know well.

3.5v on the VAMO is kicking the shit out of me. new coil is 1.4ohms btw.

RE: Ribbon Kanthal Wire
Ok guys really confused now. What is the difference between Kanthal A and Kanthal D?

From zivipf-eu on ebay:
Shop: http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/zivipf-eu/m.ht...ksid=p3686

'this Kanthal D is the best heating wire for rebuildable atomizer '
also
'this Kanthal A is the best heating wire for rebuildable atomizer'

And what size should I get?
