Can someone tell me how many wraps I need?
Hello Guys
Can someone tell me how many wraps I need?
I would like to have a coil with 0.5 ohms and 0.9 ohms.
Inner diameter should be 2,5mm.

These are the specifications:
30*2/38 AWG / 0.25mm*2/0.1mm dia. / 2.37ohm/ft / 10ft

I have different apps, but if I use claptons or something like that,
then the calculation is unfortunately not correct.

Many thanks for your help!

have you tried the steam engine calculator? its generally regarded as being pretty accurate.

http://www.steam-engine.org/wirewiz.html

I used this, and when plugging in all the details, you'll need 6 wraps for 0.5 ohms, and 11 for 0.9 ohms.

at least that will get you in the ballpark.

edit: the ohms per metre calculated by the website (7.31) also checks out with the manufacturer's specified 2.37 ohms per foot. not totally accurate, but pretty close

6 respectively 11. The good thing of this wire is that you can use it at very low wattages, apart from that I like SKU 8575005 better.

If you want higher ohms, try the Ni80 version (for the 0.9 ohms).

The steam-engine.org site has a Google Translate widget at the bottom of the page. Since there are no real grammatical concerns - just the translation of a few label words - it should be possible to use the site fairly easily for most of the "big" languages, and for many of the "smaller" ones you can usually choose something close enough to be usable.

As many as you what.

Offtopic:

Using RTAs on a TC regulated mod, I build to the deck / airflow size (usually 26g 2.5), 316L at any ohms is perfect.

wire gauge (how big/small) is the most important factor to the vape in my opinion.

0.3ohms is normal for me for general MTL.
