Whether you are new to vaping or a seasoned pro, there are many pros and cons to the wires chosen for whatever setup you decide to settle on.
One of the great things about the vaping industry is that it is a hot-bed for creation and individualization. There is no best setting that will deliver the ideal flavour, cloud size, and general experience equally to everyone. That is what makes humans special. The industry understands this by providing a plethora of options in every category.
The coil category is no different. Whether you are just starting and looking to replace an atomizer head or you are more advanced and wrapping your own coils, know that there needs to be a little experimentation with the different products to find the ideal setup for you. It’s a fun adventure and we, at Vapebuzz, are here to guide and equip you with the tools you need for the journey ahead.
Before you start, we’ll pass along some general information about the basic way coils work and popular terms and ideas. This is by no means comprehensive, so check out our blogs for more information!
First things first, the larger the gauge wire, the lower the resistance for electricity to pass through it compared to a thinner wire which will have a higher resistance. This has to do with is Ohm’s law where the current through the conductor is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance.
Using premade coils makes vaping a snap. If you’re somebody who likes to vape at lower wattages, we recommend using a vape coil with a higher resistance, meaning more ohms. Lower resistance coils require more power but can produce more vapor. A sub-ohm vape coil has a resistance lower than 1.0 ohm. Sub-ohm vaping is a great way to create massive vapor clouds and enjoy the rich e-liquids, but will use e-liquids up faster.
An Atomizer head is the part of the electronic cigarette device that contains a wick or filament material of some kind. The material is there to absorb the e-liquid and feed it to the atomizer coil(s). The coils are wires that connect to a base, which in turn connects to the battery. When the battery is deployed, the wires heat up and vaporize the e-liquid.
A single-coil atomizer head has just one single wire that is coiled up with the filament material running through it. A dual-coil atomizer head has two of these coiled wires running to the battery, providing
essentially double the amount of vapor when the battery is deployed.
The primary benefits of dual-coil atomizer heads are that they produce more vapor and flavor. The primary downside to them is that they tend to burn through e-liquid at a faster rate than their single-coil counterparts.
Kanthal is the most popular wire used in many single coil atomizers and has good resistance to oxidation. It’s commonly used for vaping in straight wattage mode. There are many different wires
employed in coils and many different configurations in prebuilt coils.
Not all setups can use the same products, when replacing make sure you are using the same coils or contact us at for additional guidance. Vaping is a fun experience when done correctly. Let us help you achieve your goals!
