Vaping has become one of the most popular hobbies in recent years, and for a good reason. Vaping is a healthier alternative to smoking, it’s cheaper, and the vapor can be flavored to taste. To vape, you need a vape pen and e-liquid.
However, many other parts make up a vape pen that helps in producing the vapor. Here’s a look at vape wire and coils and how to build your own coils.
What is Vape Wire?
Vape wire is a metal alloy created to handle the heat produced by vaping devices. This heat is necessary to vaporize the e-liquid inside the atomizer so that the user can inhale it. The most common type of vape wire is Kanthal or Nichrome, both iron-chromium-aluminum alloys. Kanthal is the most commonly used type of vape wire.
What is a Vape Coil?
A vape coil is an integral part of any vape pen, and its function is to heat the e-liquid inside your atomizer. A coil consists of several feet of small gauge resistance wire coiled around a wick, which soaks up e-liquid from your tank, feeding it into the outside and creating vapor.
