What type of Wire Exatly?
Hi guys what type of wire is used exatly with these coils?
I have been using them for a while now and already used to the wire.

Can any of you smart vaper geeks help me out and tell me to what kind of wire it is? so I can buy it in the US?
I wanna get 100 ft of it. I already know where to get wire.
I just don't know what kind of wire it is. Gauge, and type etc.

You really couldn't read the description where it says Nickel-chromium, ie nichrome?

e: Personally I don't like nichrome

What are you putting it in? clearos or drippers or RBAs?
What wick do you plan to use (silica or cotton)
What resistance are you aiming for?

But honestly these questions are better asked and answered at a proper vaping forum or local vape shop.

Lol sadly I do not have a local vaping shop out here in WA State. It sucks.
Anyway, I use kanger pro tank. V1 on a vamo v2 I hate the pro tank V2 because it leaks.
Hence why I still use pro tank 1

I also use 3mm silica wick And usually go for high resistance with my pro tank.
I find it with high resistance, the coils last longer. At least in my experience.

And as for the wire I normally use is 30g. But with 30g now it taste nasty and not satisfying vape because ive been using these FT Coils lol.

Edit: Must be because the Nickel-chromium, makes juice taste better imho

Probably because with 30g the resistance is a fair bit lower, so it burns much hotter, but then again you have Var. voltage, so I don't know?

Get 32g nichrome then. These look like they must be that.
Nichrome has a stronger taste, more easily burns out at high voltage, for these reasons I don't like it.

kanthal is a bit more resilient and has a tiny bit different resistance in it (like 0.1-0.2 ohm) for the same size coil.
Using kanthal I've had 3 coils burn out in 3 months. If you are buying these nichrome coils in bulk from here and need more, that tells me you go through a lot of nichrome burn outs, just saying...

E:
I'm in the other WA state, Western Australia. And there's only one vape shop here (and mainly sells expensive stuff like provari, genuine joytech, AW batteries, USA made carto tanks etc)

But still, you'll get more help and advice about wire in a proper e-cig forum than you would get here.
