Help
Ok I bought lots of coils pre-made ready for a Triton RTA, although I hadn't bought a catomizer or anything. Then I go window shopping in my city and Buy a Kanger Subox mini.

It came with 1 x 0.5ohm 1 x 1.5 ohm and a RTA coil with no value written down - forget what it is now, think it was also 1.5 ohm.

So I have some pre-made coils

1.8 ohm, 3mm internal, 4mm long, 8 turns
1.5 ohm, 2mm internal, 2mm long 5 turns
2.4 ohm, 3mm internal, 2mm long 8 turns

With all the messing about my 0.5 ohm Kanger coil is gone, and  waiting for some new. Was running it with 20W or so with 6mg liquid.

So Im stuck, did try to make a .5.. gave up, now got a 1.6 ohm coil made from a pre made coil in its RBA, switched back to 24 mg and about 10W.. Horid

Meanwhile Im back on the cheap e shisha 2.4 ohm catomiser pen with 24 mg liquid.

I hope new coils arrive soon, wondering if there is something I could make up to get Kanger working good again, tried 6mg liquid, week, cant get an clouds much

Have 6mg, 11mg, 24 mg, 36 mg liquids

Unless I can get down to .5 ohm again I dont think 6mg is any use. Dont know if a 3 turn coil would be any good either. Almost had a cigarette :- but got old pen working

RE: Help
With the values you've written there your using 28g kanthal.
If you can have two coils then 4 × 3mm(id) wraps will get you a .5

If you can twist two together twice then ~8 wraps dual is .5
If you can only have one coil then 8 wraps of parallel will be .5

Don't think I can do much with these then if 28G, just looked at things I bought saying 30AWG on the 1.5, I just measured it, looks like 0.25mm thick to me.. looks for my digital vernier...

Yer, eye sight not bad then :-
0.29 on 1.8 (29AWG) ?
0.25 on 1.5 (30AWG)

I think Ive seen 2 coils fitted side by side, but using the right gauge wire and right number of loops. The photo shows the clamps, so I don't think all those wraps will fit in there, clamps very flimzy really.

Sigh !

Well perhaps I can last the week end with this catomizer thinggy, funny thing is, I have 3 Pyrex glass tubes, 2 sets of colour o-rings, enough Japanese cotton to start my own store, but thought it would be 2 weeks before I needed coils.

Coil got messed up messing with Orange, Apple.

Wonder if people change flavors they automatically use a new coil and wick, I need some Nano tanks I think, then could have small amounts in them for messing

Guy on you tube
5 wraps
3mm
24AWG
3mm wide

for kanger

RE: Help
no need for a new coil when changing flavors , just rewick.

RE: Help
I would if I was making my own :- but so far using makers coils, not impossible, but hard work.

So when you rewick, do you also fire coil to clean it before new cotton
