As discussed in HWYDYW, I know from experience that toasted coils don't work well!

Sounds like SS is all around better in every way than Ti, eh?

Ti has a much larger resistance change with temperature so is more reliable in TC. SS changes only a little so it is harder for TC to do its thing. Nickel (Which I won't use) has an even larger change of resistance with temperature, about double that for Ti, which is from memory several times larger than SS.

Well, I have a spool on order so I'll try it I suppose.

Platinum has almost the same change with temperature as Ti. And has an enormously higher melting point, way higher than Kanthal.

Pity about the price....

As I remember niobium could be used to and has an insane melting point of 2468C. And is rather more affordable, if not cheap. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pure-Niobium-Wir...gpIltvlwkA

Can it be safely vaped? Because that's a really cool name of a metal to brag about using. Sounds like it's mined in Kenya.

RE: OK, this whole TC thing... Quick question.
I know of no health issues with niobium. It's pretty inert stuff. It was formerly known as columbium.

Niobium got its name from its strong similarity to tantalum (Insert lots of chemistry here). In Greek mythology, Niobe was the daughter of Tantalus.

It is a high temperature (by the standards of superconductors) superconductor, it is still superconducting at a whole -263.95C (-443.11F)

Nope!

*I realise I'm not Don but I thought I'd get that in before you had chance to try it*

Don't try it!

If you actually manage to ignite the aluminium which is possible with an alkaline juice, you won't enjoy the result. Also, given the conductivity of aluminium you'd need to make gigantic coils.

It has 1/30 of the resistivity of Kanthal. Or about a fifteenth of the resistivity of SS316.

I don't think even a Dump Tank would take the size of coils that would be needed.

Aluminium is often added to incendiary and explosive devices to get a hotter fire or bigger bang. I really, really don't recommend trying it. That said, the "al" in Kanthal is aluminium - in rather small amounts.

RE: OK, this whole TC thing... Quick question.
This thread has actually peaked my interest in trying TC again. Although I have a really nice fused clapton in my limitless now that I would really hate to take out Smile I might give it a shot when it's time to change coils.

I think I will pass on the exploding aluminum coils though Smile

Keep Calm and Vape On!
