I dont know too.
I did not know, that there is an quality level 316 without L.


Which devices do you guys use, for vaping with SS wire?
My Cloupor GT only does Nickel support. Is it possible to do an Coil from stainless with it?

most ppl will use SS without TC as the resistance does not change a lot, so it is a choppy experience in TC ;) - even with an adjustable TCR

I just don't know if it's benefits are great enough to lug around a 200 watt mod and spending more hours a day charging batteries. My Kanthal coils are plenty shiny with a dry burn and quench. I can vape them in the 20-30 watt range and get great performance.
KF4 Leaking? For a more secure seal, replace the o-ring #16 with one that is 1.5mm cross section. SKU 1536606 or SKU 1536607

Resistance means everything.
The Conservation of Energy Law implies that the energy
determined by the voltage drop across a resistance is
fully converted to heat.

You don't need a 200 watt mod to vape with SS wire.
Almost all VW/VV mods are good for that

One ohm of Kanthal puts out about twice the heat of one ohm of SS, at a given wattage.

Haven't tried this myself as yet, since I don't have any SS wire. I've read in several posts that it's possible to use SS in a device designed for nickel, with the wraps adjusted accordingly. I don't know of a chart that would give you guidelines on wrapping with it, but perhaps someone with more knowledge of it will speak up.

Power = Energy / Time

Watts = Joules / Seconds

Heat is a form of energy.

If you can disappear or create energy,
then congratulations you are a strong
candidate to the Nobel Prize.

The truth is:
One METER oh Kanthal puts out about twice the heat of one METER of SS, at a given VOLTAGE.

BECAUSE one METER oh Kanthal has about twice the resistance of one METER of SS.

At 20 watts using 26g Kanthal 2mm at 1 ohm = heat index of 177 ( heat from coil )

316L same watts, same diameter, same ohm = 92 heat index

Which mean Kanthal is more efficient at getting heat from a coil which is what we want.

It's a fact. It's not Rocket Science, and it's exactly what she said.

The "heat index" from Steam/engine IS NOT HEAT.
Is POWER divided by the surface area of the wire.

To get the same omhs with SS you need about
twice of wire and therefore about twice surface area.

When you divide by two you obtain about half "heat index".

The main conclusion here is the following:

If you build a SS coil the exactly same way that you build your Kanthal coil
(same gauge wire, same screwdriver, same number of wraps) and vape at the same wattage,
then the vaping experience should be the same.

The only difference is that your coil has about half resistance, but this doesn't matter
because your mod will apply about half voltage.

Again, what TC mods are people using this on?
