As many of you know I don’t have a particular way that I setup my atomizers because there are literally a hundred ways to do it, so why limit myself? I don’t! All of my atomizers have a different setup then the next and I love the freedom with rebuildables and honestly that is probably why i prefer them. I have never been a huge fan of micro coils, I feel if i need/want 1.2 or above in ohms I will use the appropriate wire which would normally be 32 – 30 gauge kanthal. However, a couple weeks back someone suggested that I a try a micro coil on a Kayfun and today was that day.
I ended up with a 9 wrap of 28 gauge kanthal on my Kayfun 3.1 and the setup was just as easy as a normal build. The only difficult part is determining how many wraps will fit into the chamber of the kayfun and that is how i came to a 9 wrap, it was the most that would fit in the given space. I kept compressing the coil together, to get as close as possible without coils touching together and without the coils touching the side of the chamber.
The final product came out to 2.0 ohms and its functioning as it should. The total build time was less than 10 minutes and that is including the the time spent to build the wick and coil. Also, the initial setup didn’t even render one hot spot which I was surprised by due to how the coils are, but it went smooth.
In conclusion, I don’t see any benefit to using a micro coil versus a standard coil made up of 32 gauge kanthal. The performance is the same and i don’t think that you could go wrong either way, its just going to come down to personal preference and me personally – I like them both, and will continue to use both!
