RE: Vaping Glossary
Added atomizer. Also added 510. I never knew why it was called a 510 until five minutes ago, that's really interesting. 

Edit: nevermind, the source I read was lying. Turns out it's just named after the first popular device that used it, not after the size of the connection.

RE: Vaping Glossary
TC - Temperature Control. Or, more accurately, Temperature Limiting. By continually measuring the resistance of the coil(s) you can prevent the temperature rising beyond a given point as the resistance of all metals varies with temperature. Nickel has a particularly large change in resistance with temperature so it is easier to detect temperature changes with it. Titanium has a smaller change but in mods that only expect to see nickel coils you can get the same effect by setting temperatures 100F or 50C lower.

Platinum wire would work well as it has a relatively large change in resistance with temperature, is very chemically inert and has a very high melting point. But with 0.3mm platinum wire costing $4 per centimetre and with a resistance of 0.4 ohms per metre. You'd need 14cm of it to make an 0.2 ohm coil ($56) which is 14 wraps round a 2.5mm former. You'd need 27cm of the stuff ($108) to make dual coils that came out at 0.2 ohms. Can't see that happening - blowing a coil would get expensive.

It took messing about with a lot of online calculators to figure that one out. Platinum has a comparable change in resistance with temperature as titanium so would work at least as well. Apart from the cost...

RE: Vaping Glossary
I know that's way more information than needed Michael, but I thought it was interesting. The price for the wire came from eBay.

RE: Vaping Glossary
That's really interesting! I'll definitely add tc, not sure how much of the other stuff but it's here in the comments Tongue

I also removed the bit asking people to PM instead of comment, since that train has already left the station and is too far gone... Lol I wanted people to PM me suggestions instead of commenting so this thread would be neat and clean for new vapers, but it's fun talking here so no worries Smile
