Can somebody recommend some wire for this? :)
Haven't really built a lot of coils but i get the idea (used to rewick my evods long time ago). Looking for flavor/fast ramp up.. but fairly high resistance as this will be on a Cuboid mini. Not really sure what resistance (or ID) would be the best balance of battery life/coil proformance. 0.6ish?

Any help greatly appreciated! :D

Personally I have been using Authentic MKWS 316L Stainless Steel Ribbon Wire for RBA Atomizers with my Serpent Mini. Four or five 3 mm counter clockwise raps works for me! You do have to twist the wire by some means to align it with the posts. It is ribbon wire.

I have no idea if the Cuboid will like this wire, but the serpent mini is extremely stable as far as ohms.

24awg (.5mm) kanthal should do the trick, 26 is okay to if you want to build a bit higher. I prefer 2.5mm ID coils. 4-5 wraps spaced or 6-9 wrap contact coils. You'll figure out what works for you in no time.

I always used spaced raps for the most effective TC!

I used to use 26AWG SS 316L on mine 6 2.5id spaced wraps. Came to about 0.6.

I tried a claptons in there but ramp up was a little slow for my liking.

Some of you need to try the ribbon wire and tell me if you think it sucks, or works the way I have been experiencing it! It does take a bit of manipulating so that it enters the posts correctly, but it makes an indestructible coil that doesn't distort when changing cotton.

27AWG, 7/8 wraps, 1 Ohm on a 2.5mm coil which is fairly easy on a battery, but a nice vape. I can use one 30Q for the whole day. I have a three second draw, so ramp time emulation is like a rollie.

How many watts you run your 1ohm coil at wuwei.ap?

I wrap coils for a mech, so it's about 14-15W. The wire gauge and resistance falls naturally in an area where the heat flux is good for a nice vape.

As others have said before, if you keep the coil diameter and wraps constant, you can alter the gauge of wire to change the resistance. Once you find the right number of wraps (eg. 6-7) for flavour, altering the gauge gives you different volume of the same vapor.

Kudos for reasonable mech math, so rare.

Ribbon wire does not suck. I've used it in the passed, it's a little more technical to work with but worth the effort. I have some 316L 0.3X0.1mm in route, pretty small so it could pose a challenge.

Always keep your ear to the ground!
