Not"Ni80" Picture of Design patern and comparison to other mesh
For anyone curious this is Kanthal and not Nichrome.

Just got some in today and its magnetic. "From what i understand Ni80 should not be magnetic"

Some More info:

It uses a different pattern then the Watofo mesh.

Watofo mesh is a hexagon pattern.

This Clrane mesh has square cut outs with slightly round edges. It is the same pattern as OFRF next mesh uses but while OFRF nextmesh uses much much smaller cut outs the Clrane cutouts are larger but ever so slightly smaller in appearance then watofo hexagon mesh.

As for the resistance, well that is hard to actually test with any mesh for the profile because it really depends on how you install it. Iam getting anywhere from .13ohms-.19ohms depending how i install it or what device iam using.

So if you can get over it not being Ni80 then you might like this mesh.

Personally the pattern looks better in design. I did prefer watofo mesh over the OFRF nextmesh mesh but this Clrane mesh seems like it has a nice mix of both designs. So i think i like this Clrane mesh better over the other 2. Time will tell. Its cheap enough to give a try atleast and judge yourself.

Also i will add in here XFKM mesh. It is identical in design of the watofo mesh but if you look closely the Hexagons on the XFKM mesh are thicker ever so slightly. Not sure if this would do anything. it could also just be the tolerance of the die they use to punch these out Or slightly different parameters of the laser machine that cuts the design. It also says its .13ohms but i measure .13ohms-.19ohms aswell depending "As i mentioned above it will vary some depending how you place the mesh in"

Here are the images of what they look like.




not the best picture but they will do...

I really hope one of these companies makes a stainless steel mesh soon. I'd really like stainless steel 316 over Kanthal or Ni80. It be cool also to use SS316 for Temp control... Hopefully we get it soon.


Edit: it seems they have corrected the tittle and it now says the correct metal. "Kanthal"

Thanks for a great companion Vapoorer.
I’ve got the Wotofo and XFKM and like them both.
I am about to order the Cirane version.
I also tried the Vandyvape mesh that comes on
a spool and I cut it to size but I didn’t like it at all,
flavour wasn’t as good and it spit a lot.
