Stainless Steel Parallel Coil Build

This Stainless Steel Parallel Coil build makes me love parallel builds each time I take a hit. It is one of the best coils I have made. The vapor production is massive and with the right airflow, you can make Goldilocks clouds.

What this Stainless Steel Parallel Build offers

  • Top Quality Vapor Production
  • Full Flavor
  • Beginner build experience

I have been vaping on this same coil for a few months now since I like it so much. All I do is clean the coil by getting it wet while it is hot and it is clean as a whistle.

Let’s get started with this coil build.

Here are the supplies you will need. Pretty simple! It is just a drill, two different types of vape wire, pliers, A drill bit and wire cutters. It is all the basic coil building supplies.Stainless Steel Parallel

After you get the supplies, you cut your two strands of wire. I only cut about eight inches of each length because I only made one coil. I would cut about a foot if you are going to make dual coils. I then used my drill to straighten the wire. “Pro Tip” A drill makes wires as straight as possible.  Stainless Steel Parallel WireThird, I started wrapping the wire. This part was a little difficult because the wires are two different sizes and making them line up is a pain. You might want to use the drill to wrap the coils. Stainless Steel Parallel Wrapped WireLastly, I put the coils on my RDA. I used my Goon RDA because it has a lot of room to build on and it is not as tall as other RDAs. If you have not tried the Goon RDA here is a link. The one coil came out to be .24 ohms.

Even though it was a single coil build, it still makes a ton of vapor and while filling your lungs.

Stainless Steel Coil That Chucks

Stainless Steel Coil That Makes Clouds in The Sky! This build is a beast and has the potential to win cloud competitions. Stainless Steel coils offer spectacular flavor when vaping and build huge clouds. The Stainless steel coils have a fairly low resistance. I have found that vaping on them in temperature control mode works best for me.

The temperature control mode is a pretty sweet tool to use when you are vaping and building your own stainless steel clapton coils. Since the stainless steel clapton coils have a low resistance, they tend to get too hot fairly quickly. The temperature control mode allows for you to keep the coil below a certain temperature, which in turn will make sure your cotton does not get burnt.

A big problem with building your own coils or stainless steel clapton coils, is that mech mods and running your coils on wattage mod will burn your cotton. Once you burn the cotton really bad, it can leave a burnt taste in the RDA forever. Make sure the coil does not get close to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. I try to keep it around 450 Degrees just to be on the safe side.

One dope thing about the stainless steel clapton coils is that they leave really cool looking hot spots. Since they are stainless steel they will make blue, yellow and brown spots on the coil.

Here is how to build the Stainless Steel coil

First off I get good vape wire and make sure it is high quality for my stainless coil.

Next, I go and cut one piece of core stainless steel wire. I used 28 gauge wire because I still wanted this coil to be vapeable and if I used like a 22 gauge the ohms would be too low.

Third, I started wrapping the stainless steel clapton wire on the core wire to make tight wraps around the core wire. Stainless Steel Coil

I found that the tighter the wrap, the easier it is to actually make the coils at the end.

Two stainless steel coils were made from all the Clapton wire I made. I did four wraps and vaped on this coil in temperature control mode or around 90 watts because the dual coils came in at .17 ohms.

Vaping Peer Pressure! Is There a Bigger Problem?

Is vaping peer pressure a real thing?

We all have been through middle school and high school and faced some type of peer pressure. Some people are strong and stand up against it while others just care too much about what people think of them. It works the same way with vaping peer pressure.

Some kids cannot say no to people who they hang out with. This causes a problem when kids think illegal things are “cool”.  Whether it is vaping or drugs, it is a problem that is a little overlooked.

Adults who do studies on teen vaping, often do not look at the aspect of peer pressure. They just look at a number of teens who vape.

In reality, it is a bigger problem than vaping peer pressure. The problem is kids who look to others to validate their worth.

Why Vape Devices Blow Up

Here is Why Vape Devices Blow Up. All over the internet, there are posts about vape devices blowing up and people getting hurt. Even though it is very unfortunate that people are getting hurt, most of the time it is user error.

You can tell it is user error because almost all the time you see a vape device blow, it is a RDA on a mech mod or even a regulated mod.

People say all vapes are bad because they blow up, but if you look at the post and see similarities, you will notice a few things. These things greatly explain why these devices are blowing up.

They are mostly mechanical mods. Mechanical mods are great for getting raw power and big clouds. I do believe that mechanical mods make the biggest clouds, but they are the most dangerous because they are taking power directly from the battery.   Mechanical mods that have a battery reading to low will cause the battery to blow up. It is that simple.

People have coil builds that are too low ohms. Ohms is the electrical reading that displays how much power it takes to heat up the coils. It also will give you an idea of how hot the vapor will be. If the ohm reading is too low your battery will heat up and could possibly explode.

People just do not know how to build vape coils and the safety behind it. Do not go below .10 ohm for any battery or device. Make sure you have name brand batteries. I always go with a Samsung 25r. It is the best battery in my opinion.

Always test your coils with an ohm reader and never run a coil build that is too low in ohms. Always Vape Safe!

Cop Will Not Be Charged for Shooting a Man With a Vape Mod

Cop Will Not Be Charged for Shooting a Man With a Vape Mod

Cop Will Not Be Charged for Shooting a Man With a Vape Mod. In EL Cajon there was a police officer who shot and killed a man.  The subject who was killed was an alcohol and cocaine user, jus happened to point a vape mod at the officer like a gun.  Again the officer will not be charged because deadly force was deemed acceptable.

The officer last year shot and killed an unarmed black man. Even though he has shot and killed another human last year, this shooting with the vape device was completely justified by the district attorney. I do not care who you are, but anyone who points something at a cop like a gun is asking for it.

I do not care who you are, but anyone who points something at a cop like a gun is just asking for trouble. Police officers are out to protect citizens and themselves, so if someone appears to point a gun at an officer they are probably going to get shot.

Police officers are put in situations where they have to make split-second decisions and this is one of them. It is sad that someone lost their life, but he proposed a threat to the police officer.

The father of the man who was killed said he was shocked that a police officer could shoot and kill a person and not be arrested. Personally, I feel anyone in their right state of mind would see this as justified. The guy pointed the vape at him like a gun.  The vape was silver and from a distance probably looked like a gun.

After the man was killed, they tested his blood. In his blood, they found cocaine and alcohol. He was probably acting crazy as well and was not in his right state of mind. It is very unfortunate that he lost his life, but he threatened the officer and the officer defended himself.

Fused Twisted Clapton Vape Wire- Stainless Steel

Fused Twisted Clapton Vape Wire- Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel Coil

Fused Twisted Clapton Vape Wire made with stainless steel. This is one of my first stainless steel builds because I normally use kanthal or nichrome. The colors on stainless steel is probably my favorite part of this build. It came out to .17 ohms, which was exactly where I wanted it.

Fused Twisted Clapton Vape Wire How TO

This build is pretty simple but it does take some concentration for making the clapton part. It is a little hard because the wire is twisted and it wants to helix the wire not claptonize it.”Hey! I just made that word up” I just took it slow at first then sped it up.

Fused Twisted Clapton Vape Wire

I started off with 28 gauge stainless steel for the core/fuse wire. I wanted it a higher gauge because I did not want this build to be extremely low ohms. The higher gauge did work but you might be able to get away with 26 gauge.

Fused Twisted Clapton Vape Wire

I cut one piece that was about 2.5 feet long. I folded it in half and stuck it in a drill chuck. I then started twisting it and twisted it a little bit but not a lot. Twisting it a too much could cause the wire to get hard and not bend a lot, kinda like this Nickel build. That nickel build was good for what it is but I did not want this wire to get hard.

I then used 32 gauge for the clapton part of this Fused Twisted Clapton Vape Wire build. I do not really like higher gauge wire for claptons because they are a little too thin for me. Start really slow and make sure your wraps are doing good. You can start to go faster after you got the technique down, just do not let it helix instead of clapton.

I used a 7/64 drill bit and did 5 wraps. They have a really cool color and chuck clouds. It is pretty low ohms so make sure your battery can handle this low ohms. Vape Saft

National Park Vaping Ban- Vape News!

There has been a National Park Vaping ban. You can no longer vape in a national park. The ban has come from the ban on smoking in National Parks, even though vaping is not the same thing as smoking.

The National Park Services (NPS) says vaping is still an unknown and may cause health related problems in not vapers.  As crazy as that sounds, that is what they are proposing.

Vaping out in the open does not affect anyone besides the vaper. Vapor evaporates too fast to cause an area to be filled with vapor. It is a little crazy and I am still trying to think about their logic behind the National Park Vaping Ban.

Vaping still has not been proven to be harmful. Vaping is even less harmful outdoors because the risk of second-hand vape is minimized. Inside there is such thing as second-hand vape but not outside.

I do get that some people do not what people blowing clouds in their face. I too do not like it when people blow big huge clouds in my vape. That part is all about respect and not health problems. Please be respectful when you vape around other people.

The National Park Vaping Ban is not a big deal.

I have never seen a person vape in a national park, nor have I heard of anyone vaping in a national park. It is a little annoying how they say vaping is like smoking tobacco, which it is not. Vaping is completely different and I just wish the government would see that. But for now, we just have to follow the rules and keep vaping.

Always vape respectfully because it shields a good light on vaping. The last thing we need is the whole world thinking vapers are jerks and do not care about anyone.  We are human beings just like everyone else. Vape on!

How To Make Braided Kanthal Vape Wire

Braided Kanthal Vape WireHere is a pretty sweet Braided Kanthal Vape wire I made. Braided kanthal has a few distinct characteristics which differ from other kanthal builds. It almost reminds me of a Clapton build, it is not quite exact. Braided Kanthal Vape wire wicks a little better than Clapton wire in my opinion. The clouds are not the biggest, but you can still win cloud competitions with them. I did make them have a gloss finish with sand paper. It came out to be a very low ohm builds so make sure your battery can handle it. Always vape safe and never overload your batteries.

How to make Braided Kanthal Vape wire

This wire is kinda a pain to make if you do not have a vise or something else to hold the wires firmly down. Getting a small vise is not hard and can normally be found at a hardware store for like$15-$20.

Braided Kanthal Vape Wire

I started by cutting 3 pieces of 28 gauge AWG Kanthal Wire at 2 feet long. The overall length is going to be around 7/8th of a foot when you get finished.

Fold wires in half and twist all three pieces together. It is very important to get them even because it makes it a lot easier to braid the wire when they are even.

Braided Kanthal Vape Wire 2

Start braiding them and keep the braid tight. I keep it tight by pushing the wires back at a 90-degree angle. Always have the same amount of tension on the wire at all times. You mess up you could end up making the Braided Kanthal Vape wire unusable.

It takes me about 10 minutes to braid a foot when I work it non-stop. The build came out to .08 ohms for a 10 wrap single coil. It has lots of wire mass and a slower than normal ramp up time. I would only use this on a regulated mod or a parallel box mod. I do not think there is a single battery that can handle this low ohm by itself. Vape safe and Blow big clouds.

VAPE STORE-How To Find a Great Vape Store !

Finding a Great VAPE STORE is hard. I have bought vape products from many different stores all to find a great one. At the end of this post, I will leave a few links to a great vape store or two.

A good vape store has some highlighted characteristics.

  • Friendly Service
  • New and high-quality products
  • Fair Prices
  • Good Hours

Friendly service is my number one deciding factor when looking for the best vape store. They can have great prices but if their employees suck, then it will be a pain to shop there. Always have a decent attitude towards vape store employees, because they probably have had bad customers that day.

New and High-quality products is a biggy. I have been to a few vape shops and all they had were cheap little vapes that had built in tanks. They also had cheap juices, which I do not advise using for many health reasons. Always buy high-quality products from a vape store.

Fair Prices are always a must. I say fair because in person vape shops are always going to be higher than online places. I never knew why until I asked a shop owner who said that it cost him 8 thousand dollars to keep his shop open each month. Paying a little bit extra is not really that bad considering how much it cos them.  I always expect to pay $15 more for a vape when I buy it in person. Always support local vape stores, they keep this industry going.

Why I like local vape shops is because they offer a lot. I love the stores that mix their own e-juice, because you know it is fresh. Most shops have a lounge area to hang out and vape, which gives a sense of community to the vaping world. Find the best vape store is not that hard, but they are all different and offer different things.

My favorite Online Shop is Misthub.    Great Prices and probably the best customer service from an online shop.

Since we all live in different places all around the world, you are going to have to go out and hunt for your favorite shop.

Teen Vaping Drop! For the First Time in Years



Teen Vaping Drop! For the First Time in Years

Teen vaping drop

Teen vaping drop for the first time in years. Minors have been illegally vaping for a very long time, ever since vaping become popular. No one really knows why teens have been vaping or what their motive behind vaping is. All we know now is that there is a teen vaping drop.

Sources have shown that only 13% of all high school students have said they have tried an e-cigarette/vape. Now, given the fact that no one knows why there are teens vaping, there are a few educated guesses we can make.

Teen vaping drop

Reasons for the Teen Vaping Drop

Minors have been using tobacco products ever since they came out. “To get the record straight, I am not saying vaping or e-cigarettes are tobacco products.” Tobacco products have nicotine as their main active chemical. I say chemical because nicotine is a chemical. Teens use tobacco to get the edge of, as they say. Nicotine does have a calming effect, but it does also cause death. Tobacco is the only product legal in America if use the way it is intended will kill you. Nicotine is in e-juice so there are some things we can take from that.

Since we know nicotine takes the edge off and e-juice has nicotine, teens might be using e-juice with nicotine to take the edge off. I have to say I would rather teens vape than smoke combustible tobacco products, but it is highly illegal and vaping should not be done by minors. But that does not give a reason for the decline.

Nicotine is a psychoactive chemical. It releases dopamines in the brain, but the nicotine buzz normally lasts a few minutes at a time. If someone who does not smoke or vapes, vapes an e-juice with nicotine, they will more than likely obtain a buzz or head rush from the nicotine in the e-juice. A person’s tolerance to nicotine rises within a very short amount of time. If a person starts to vape and vapes for a week with nicotine, they will probably stop having a nicotine buzz or head rush. That is how fast your nicotine tolerance rises.

The Teen vaping drop is mostly due to the fact that teens are not getting a buzz from the nicotine. They probably go into it and get a nicotine buzz than within a week realize that buzz effect is gone. After their buzz time frame is gone, they probably think vaping is pointless. If you only want to vape for the buzz and not the hobby, then vaping is pointless after the buzz effect is gone.

So we can take that the teen vaping drop is more than likely due to the fact that vaping is not giving teens what they want. Vaping was not meant for getting a buzz or head rush. It is meant to get people off tobacco products and for enjoyment.

That is my two cents, comment yours!
