Double Twisted Kanthal Wire

A 5 metre roll of UD brand quality twisted resistance wire for making coils. Grade A1

Choose from two sizes in the drop down menu and get a little discount when you buy three:

  • 0.3 mm - 28 gauge
  • 0.4 mm - 26 gauge

Although Kanthal wire gets softer than nicrome wire when very hot and more brittle when cold, Kanthal is generally accepted as being more durable than nicrome wire as it has a higher thermal profile.

General guidelines from the manufacturer

The finer the wire the higher the resistance

A 34 gauge wire (0.15 mm diameter) produces HIGHER ohms over a SHORTER distance, compared to a 32 gauge (0.20 mm diameter) which is slightly thicker, but would require more coils to achieve the same resistance.

Twisting

Twisting the wire lowers the resistance by half, so if you wish to use twisted wire, you will need to double the amount of coils to achieve the same resistance.

Please note the difference between Kanthal wire A1, A & D grades

Kanthal A1: maximum temperature 1399C, 1.45 electrical resistivity at 20C ohms

Kanthal A: maximum temperature 1349C, 1.39 electrical resistivity at 20C ohms

Kanthal D: maximum temperature 1299C, 1.35 electrical resistivity at 20C ohms

Kanthal A1 has a HIGHER maximum temperature threshold than Kanthal A, and Kanthal A is HIGHER than Kanthal D.

In e-cig terms, A1 grade is slightly less likely to "pop" if a short or hotspot occurs, although, the differences are likely to be small.

Important

Rebuildable atomizers and their coils and wicks have known risks. Rebuildables such as this device are for experienced and expert users only. It should not be purchased by a user with an average or less amount of knowledge.

Users of these products will need knowledge of electronic devices and how and when to use an electrical meter. These devices and materials cannot safely be used by the inexperienced users.

Incorrect construction and installation of a coil can lead to damaged batteries and damaged equipment. Ensure you test your coils before use to ensure they are not causing a short or the resistance is too low.

  • A rebuildable coil/wick MUST be tested carefully with a meter before it is used
  • If it is not tested it is entirely at the risk of the user
  • Faulty wicks/coils WILL blow electronic devices
  • New coil/wick units must be tested and then used first on a strong basic electrical APV that has short circuit protection
  • No new coil/wick assembly should be used on an electronic device until known to be safe
  • These items destroy electronic devices if faulty

Warranty

Due to the nature of this item there is no warranty cover.
