Again, don't use TC. Use VW.

With half the resistance you are not able to feel a difference, really?
Then why does everybody needs subohm devices etc? I thought the vape gets more warm, and i beleived the low ohm wires respond more quickly...?

@Sebastian30

Subohm fashion goes from the good old age of mech mods.
Mech mods are not capable to step up the voltage,
so the only way to increase the power was to decrease
the resistance.

Now, with powerful VW mods, resistance is (in a range) irrelevant.

The important thing now is your coil build
(gauge wire, screwdriver, number of wraps).

The more material in your heating coil, the more
WATTS you need for getting a satisfying vape.

316L stainless ist absolutely nickel-free, as far as i know.
Its true, there are types of steel, containing nickel, but not in 316L.




WIKIPEDIA
"The second most common austenite steel is the 316 grade, also referred to as A4 stainless and called marine grade stainless, used primarily for its increased resistance to corrosion. A typical composition of 18% chromium and 10% nickel, commonly known as 18/10 stainless, is often used in cutlery and high-quality cookware. 18/0 is also available."

Hey jorgelarocha, yes good old times.
I have an Zombie Hybrid style mechMod and an Kayfun v4, both in SS, and you would not believe how perfect they fit together. This Combo looks so freakin amazing cool, i can not tell ya.

But in the mechMod-past, and ten, twelve, fifthteen Watts VW times, we did not decrease that extremely, than we do it now.
Before an year, nobody needed less than 1,5ohm right? I wasnt vaping before one year, but im actually pretty sure, people was vaping in a 2.5 to 1.5ohm range, maybe 1,2ohm right?

It seems its all about the stupid Nickel wire. If it would be possible to run temperature control with our all good old Kanthal wire, i would do it and never turn back to nickel.
Unfortunately the ijoy asolo doesnt really works like the known Ni&Ti-TC devices, and its even very expensive.

Hope you guys are able to understand my slippery english.

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 matterbecause your mod will apply about half voltage.



I would bet that the SS one would be a warmer vape. I haven't tried

Yeah, you can also bet that a bowling ball falls
from a building quicker than a baseball ball.

You will lose. They call it physics.

The names Hoxxy (Typo when registering grrrr), I gave up smoking by vaping, 1yr later I was 0 nic, and now I don't even vape.

I've been using 316l SS coils on Taifun GT clones for 2 years. It doesn't give a warmer vape. On the contrary, it's a soft but full vapor. As it has less resistance, you can use a thinner wire and it heats up fast, but mild.
I like the way it enhances the soft vape of the taifuns for some juices.
I haven't tried it yet on a TC mod (my only tc mod being the istick, I suppose it wouldn't work on TC mode unless I twist it with some pure nickel... ?)
I also like its softness (not as soft as ni200, but much more than same gauge kanthal). I find it easy to coil, though it also means it can break more easily than kanthal when you overtighten the screws.
