RE: OK, this whole TC thing... Quick question.
I also like 26g. It'll do most things.. what's it got to go in and what resistance are you looking for? (as you mentioned both tc and power use)

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

I just started using .25 coils, but I under power them at 65W. Anything else is too hot. I'm a toodle vaper after all. Something in a .3 might be lovely.

What gauge?

Personally, I prefer 24ga flies. But it's really a personal thing. I like them a little thicker, the 30ga flies are harder to catch/kill.

You best remeber that for future reference buddy ... and my fruit does not get bruised easily. Gently is a gentle soul though.

Bibs I think you are confusing coil diameter with wire thickness. The gauge measurement is for how thick the wire is, and the diameter is for how big around you wind the wire into a coil. I sent you 26ga A1 kanthal (twisted and regular), and that 26ga wire was wound into dual 2.5mm ID coils on the Haze. The question you asked us was how thick the wire is that we like.

And use the steam engine coil calculator to get an idea of what you will need to build to get to the target resistance you want (.3).
