Just so we can clarify for those who aren't as experienced:
The vapor is produced by metal coils that are wrapped around a wicking material. In some atomizers, these come premade in a nice little package.
Usually, the coil and wick will be contained in a metal case with some holes in it. There are also atomizers that allow us to make this coil and wick
on our own, called RBA, RTA, RDTA, and more acronyms.. For these, you can still buy coils that are prewrapped (though they wont have the little metal
case, just a coil with two leads), or you can wrap your own. There are an obscene
amount of different ways to wrap the coil. I prefer a basic
spaced coil, claptons, and alien coils. The premade coil heads and prewrapped coils are about equal in price, usually $2-$5 each, depending on
atomizer. It takes ~5 inches of wire to make a basic coil, and we can get 30ft. of that wire for the same $2-$5 dollars (on fasttech). Pretty large
So, before the more advanced chipsets came out, we had to be very, very careful that the coil matched properly to the batteries and the rest of the
electronics (battery only in a mechanical mod). There is actually a pretty gnarly amount of amperage running through these devices. So, when building
our own coils, we had to make sure they were the right resistance, etc. or face explosions.
With the new chipsets, all of these calculations are done internally. Meaning, all we need to do is make sure the coil is in a certain range of
resistance and the device will do everything else itself. There are still concerns about say, using titanium coils in a mode made for nickel coils,
but the resistance, applied voltage/amperage, etc. are calculated internally. I doubt it'll be long before the metal is also recognized internally
(some already do it, with mixed reliability).
I probably left some stuff out, but I think that's a decent basic rundown.
Now, back to the reply (sorry BFFT, felt like the info might be helpful to some)!
I have seen those coils in the TFV4! My only issue is that I try to balance juice consumption with flavor. I'm not really a cloud chaser (at all). Its
a really tricky balance.. but even dual coils can chug that ejuice. I'd be curious to see how bad such a setup guzzles. Its taken a lot of effort to
figure it out, as it doesn't seem a huge concern to most.
I'm far too lazy to do much of that, and my back pain doesn't help, but some of that stuff is literally art, IMO. The amount of time and skill
involved is no joke.
If you do get involved with it, I'd strongly suggest a coil jig like
. You can get it elsewhere, but
expect to pay $30 or more. It makes things a lot easier than the old standard: the screwdriver or drill bit!
I mainly use an aromamizer rdta v2 myself, but I'm about to order a bunch of clones for fun
Hard to pass up when they cost 5 bucks.
