Don't know, adjust to fit, my only point was round wire can be as good as a basic clapton, when you think that 0.8mm wire has double the surface area of 0.4mm.

After trying ALL gauges it is what I settled on.... any bigger gets too hard to work with and lowers resistance too far for my style of vaping.

Ribbon wire has a good surface area too. It's a bit 'old hat' these days I know, but that too might be a fair alternative to a basic Clapton. :)

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

The diameter of a blue screwdriver is exactly 2mm. This single discovery opened a world of possibilities for me.


Now you know why they were so precious back in 2013-15 while 2mm diam. coil was the standard ;-)

I'll try it, my inly problem would be the resistance ... I vape on .7ohm at 11-12W... and .2 mesh in intense rda on 20w So battery life should be shorter with that kinda build right?

I usually hit that coil that i described at 35 watts.

Yes, shorter battery life.
