RE: Wire Question
How does that Steam Engine page work with Clapton coils? It all makes perfect sense to me until I start thinking about wrapped coils.

RE: Wire Question
I couldn't figure out Claptons with steam engine either, but I have an app on my phone called Vape Tool which I found much easier to figure out coil builds such as twisted, claptons, fc, etc etc.

RE: Wire Question
Clapton coils are weird. Basically, the electricity flows through the path of least resistance, which in the case of Claptons is the core. So let's say you built a Clapton coil with a single 26ga core wrapped in 34ga. Then all you'd need to do is pretend the wrap doesn't exist and plug it into Steam Engine as a single strand 26ga coil. Same thing for fused Claptons, if you built a fused clapton with two cores both 26ga, then you'd just plug it in as a 26ga parallel coil.
