Kanthal Klapton Kwestion
OK, so I want your thoughts here.

I built a fused Clapton, using 24g A1 for the cores and 40g SS316l for the Clapton. It's a single rather than parallel because the stupid Daedalus bound up halfway through so I stopped there. After I tossed the jig across the floor, I wrapped the single. 3.0MM ID, 7 wraps.

So here's the thing. It's kind of dull. Flavor is just not really popping. So the question...

Which is more likely to be the cause for the bland build- single coil, or A1 cores?

And option 3, lousy builder is always possible.

Hi TW - you haven't said what the resistance of the coil is - it might just be a power thing.

.35, at 38w right now. I used the A1 because I'm out of SS for the cores by the way.

6-7 wraps? It's that right there. It'll ramp up too slowly. Whip a wrap or two off and see the difference Wink

What wattage for that build then G?

I'm sure your post said .3 when I first read it?!

It'll be a ~.2 .25 so 60 through 100 should be good. I'd go around the 70 mark but that's preference.

It is .25, G.

How about 40w? I usually don't like higher watt vaping because it gets too hot too quick.

RE: Kanthal Klapton Kwestion
You sweet, greasy little monkey. Even at 45w, well below your recommended wattage, with 5 wraps it is wayyyyyyyy cleaner and better. Thanks man, spot on.
