About Youde UD Kanthal A1 Wire

High quality Kanthal resistance wire perfect for coil building. Available in 24 ga (0.5mm), 26 ga(0.4mm) and 28 ga(0.3mm).

About resistance wire and coil building

Vapers who like to have complete control over their vaping experience usually turn to building their own coils. To produce the massive amount of vapour that so many crave you basically need to heat as large a surface area of cotton as possible, this is why sub-ohm vaping is so popular. Lower resistance wires are thicker, which allows you to cover a larger area of cotton (wick). Wire thickness are measured in gauges ("ga" or "awg"). The lower the ga/awg number the thicker the wire (e.g 24 ga is thicker than 30 ga). Millimetre measurements are also provided to avoid confusion.

Kanthal wire has long been the standard material for coils but with technological advances comes the use of different wire--including nickel (Ni200) which changes resistance when heated. This allows certain devices equipped with temperature control to only heat the coil to a certain temperature, which virtually eliminates dry hits. 

Atomizer building is not for beginners or intermediate users and one must know about electrical safety (especially Ohm's law) when building coils.

Product Reviews

It's my first time on buildind coils and the Kanthal A1 is working very well. It's easy to work with, but don't forget to do the "dry burn" before you start to vape. I'm a beginner on this and I didn't know it. I was just building my coil and starting to vape, so that was always tasting like terrible burned. The product haven't any advice about the use or how work wih that, so only after a few days and after ask about it on forums, I could know what I was doing wrong. I think that the product should have informations about it, but it haven't. Anyway, the quality is good.
