I am a bit of an ignorant person when it comes to SS wire.How can this be used?Does it need TC with Nickel Purity or whatever?

You can use 316 wire like Kanthal, with about half the resulting resistance. Some mods are also able to do temperature control with stainless wire. See ECR to learn about it.

Personally, I can't wait until more devices support SS. No more messing with the high currents (and power losses) of ni200 builds.

Thanks for the link mate.So double the wraps of the coil gets the same resistance (about)...Hmmmm seems interesting...

This wire resistance 11.3 ohm, and this https://www.fasttech.com/products/3206100 5.42 ohm/m. Why such a difference in 2 times?

just wrong specs from fasttech. it might be not meters but feet or whatever. the ohms/m are wrong most of the time here.

317 Vapes cooler than Kanthal, 316 should be no different. No big difference in flavour though.

0.5 Ohm 2.5mm ID coil of this 26g/0.4mm 316L would be about 8 wraps
