Sold me on it. You made those coils? Neat!!!

I'll be using prewrapped coils to start with....

Do these work or do I need something else specific for the IM?
And what cotton is good to use? I used some organic stuff that came with my kanger topbox and top and bottom of it had a thicker almost pad type cotton that made wicking it a real pita.

I made the coils; you can too. Not hard, I promise. Anyway, just so I don't suggest EVERY part of your build, I'll let someone else recommend coils and cotton. No, you don't need special coils for this thing.

By the way for reference, those coils are SS316, 11 wraps each, twisted 26g, 3.0 mm ID. Ohm out around. 24 together. Great in power or TC.

Thanks. Also what meter would you recommend? I didn't want to overspend on an expensive one that has features I wouldn't use.

RE: Hellvape - Iron Maiden RDTA
I have a 25 year old meter I had in college, and frankly I don't even use one anymore.

That's what a buddy said..he never used one...I did use one but without big baby cap and look what happened... Dodgy
I'd be afraid to chance it again without one...

RE: Hellvape - Iron Maiden RDTA
Pick up a coilmaster tool kit for $40. It has everything you need to build coils including a meter. I also would recommend an Avidartisan Daedulus kit for making clapton coils. I runs $33 from efun.top and is worth every penny.

Beginner coil builders should follow all the proper steps to prevent damage, or worse, injury.

Rip, my experience on a meter was that I originally bought a DROK meter - within 6 weeks it started giving false readings and fell apart - I then got a Coil Master 521 tab - they also have a 521 mini - buy a decent one once and it should last years.... I love using the 521 as it allows me a stable build area, a tester and I can also fire it, all without having to grab a mod.... super convenient if you're building for a series or mech mod that doesn't have the ohms reader....

I know some people don't use one - I did without when my cheap one broke - but if you intend on getting into the entire coil wrap aspect of vaping, as TW said, a decent one will last decades... Smile

Amazon has the authentic 521 tab for $39.99 and the authentic 521 mini for $19.99 --- I prefer the full version as it includes the leads for accurately testing cells.
