Since i'm new to this coil buying process I have no idea what I'm looking for.

No clue what these 2 options are or what the difference is.
26 gauge AN80 38 gauge TMN80
24 gauge AN80 38 gauge TMN80

But I did find the ohm for each on their page which means I would want something different to get higher (or lower?) ohm.
26/38 .17 ohms
24/38 .12 ohms

I assume this would be the same thing as pre made coils where .15 would burn juice a lot faster than .5 but with reduced flavor?

RE: Premade Coils
With the metals the same per gauge, your resistance will drop as the gauge drops. Gauge ratings are a lower number for the thicker gauge (24g wire is physically thicker than 28g). The thinner outer wrap of the Clapton has little effect, thanks to the "electricity takes the path of least resistance" deal. So with Claptons, the lower gauge number is the primary driver of resistance.

Gauge isn't a determining factor for flavor and vapor. Thicker wires are vaped at higher power levels. Think of it like running current through house wiring. Try running your furnace with speaker wire... see how long it lasts.

RE: Premade Coils
Also.....with the IM, do you use wattage or TC on your IPV8?

I know a lot of people posted that TC is better hardware life wise and taste but can the coils do either setting or is TC a specific coil type?

RE: Premade Coils
Hey rip check this out. This would really give you some great choices. These are for power mode only. Kanthal can't be used for tc.

RE: Premade Coils
The only really important thing about TC is the type of wire used. SS can be used in both, Kanthal is for power only. Nickel and Titanium are never for power mode because they do bad things when overheated.

I used TC with my iPV8 and IM. (Though currently I am using it on the iPV5 of course). You can use whatsoever you like.

I assume this above sentence means I can't use these on my IPV8?

Oh man, people are dumb (the people making the coils, not you). That low resistance shouldn't be used on parallel mechs. But to answer your question, they can be used on any mod that will fire that low. Most will, some won't. 

The only difference between the two coils is the core wire. 24ga is thicker, thus lower resistance than 26ga.

Those are way overpriced for what they are. The reason they're so overpriced is the same reason as why they have such weird letters and numbers in their description: AN80 stands for "Anarchist Wire Nichrome 80" and TMN80" stands for “Twisted Messes Nichrome 80.“ Which basically means they're using really overpriced wire, to build really overpriced coils. You can buy nichrome 80 wire cheap, as long as it doesn't have the Anarchist or Twisted Messes brand name on it.

Which would you say is better performance and maintenance wise on the IM, power or TC mode? I only tried TC with Kanger coils included with the TopBox and had nice and steady heat but due to the coils being absolute garbage and burning out on me in days, I never really got to try it out for long.

RE: Premade Coils
Oh, TC for me, for sure. Since I don't have to be worried about being absent-minded and roasting the cotton, my builds always last longer in TC. But TC... she's a fickle beast. It is terrific and my favorite mode, for sure. But it will take a little while to understand it and dial it in. If you choose to use it, be patient. Ask questions. Don't give up quickly.

From my experience though, either mode will last longer with the IM thanks to the anti-spitback cap. Keeps a lot of the condensation from settling on to the build. As always, however, YMMV.
