What metal setting for A1 wire?
These coils are made out of Kanthal A1 wire. My question is I have a temp control and Watt control mod the Kanger dripbox 160. It has 4 settings on it for different types of wires; ni-chromium, nickel, stainless steel and titanium.
Which would be the best metal setting for this Kanthal A1 wire? My thinking is the stainless steel.

You can use Stainless steel wire on TC or wattage.

Kanthal = wattage

Nickel/Titanium = TC


Enjoy!


Edit: Get your kanthal + watts down pat before even considering SS/TC. My advice at least
