    Simple staple coil! Beginners guide. How to!

    A lot of people see forum members suggesting rebuildable atomizers or rebuildable atomizer heads as a suggested option they should have on their first mod. This is a simple video on how to build a basic coil. This coil is 0.55 ohm so should work on just about any RBA deck, including the RBA Mini that comes with Kanger toptank or bottomtank mini kit. I am setting a cap at 80 watts, so coils will work well at lower power settings. This coil will work at about 25W or higher, depending on how you like to vape.

    Since this is for beginners building their first coil, I am only using the most basic tools required. A length of wire. (I use 24ga kanthal) A screwdriver (the little blue one that comes with every rebuildable atomizer) and some wire cutters. (nail clippers will work as well, but they tend to get dull far quicker than the wire cutters)

    This is only HOW TO build your first, simple coil. Mechanical mod users can use the method, but will need to calculate the resistance according to their mod and battery. Vape safe.
    *note.. using 2 of these coils will halve the total resistance and increase the power required.*


    This is just a quick video on my webcam. I'm not going for an Emmy. LOL.

    Lesson 2.
    Build a simple, single core clapton coil.
    In this video I will be showing how to make a simple, single core clapton wire. Use that to wrap a coil, exactly as shown in the previous video.
    Plan on messing up your first and maybe 2nd attempt. The more you practice, the more usable wire you will get as you get better. if you make a mistake, just reverse the drill to unwind, and then just reverse the drill back and continue on. Shorter core wire lengths are easier to work with

    Lesson 3
    The parallel coil.
    Use this to add more wraps of wire to a coil without adding to much resistance. Basically, this is a dual coil, but very easy to mount one parallel on each side of an atomizer. They ramp up faster than a single coil and reduces the resistance. This is handy because most regulated mods have a high limit, such as 3.3 ohm. I used an 18 wrap coil on my RBA mini. Straight coil would come out to over 5 ohms, but a 3 strand parallel build came out to 0.58 ohm. (32ga stainless steel, 6 wraps, 3.0 id core) for the kanger toptank mini RBA

    Last in the series of coil building for new vapers. The fused clapton. This is a flavor coil. 2 core parallel wrapped with 32ga stainless steel. Notice, there is no resistance mentioned. That is up to you to decide. This video is for method only. You can build for resistance using Coil wrapping | Steam Engine | free vaping calculators. You do not include the wrapping wire in the resistance calculator because any actual current across the wrap is very small. Current flows across the path of least resistance and paralled 24 ga NiChrome has much less resistance than the stainless steel used to wrap the coil. Use the resistance of the parallel core wires for your resistance calculations.
