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.
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. Third, 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. Lastly, 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 fill your lungs.
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.
Once 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.
I found that the tighter the wrap is 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.
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.
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.
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
Here 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 I 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.
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.
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.
