If some of these benefits interest you then let's get technical!
Your vape device uses electricity and there is a science behind building your own coils to fully understand so ensure that your build is safe! Doing something wrong may cause excessive heat or even explosions.
Don’t worry though, this blog will explain how to make sure this does not happen.
From vaping pens to advanced mods, every vaper needs to fully understand Ohm’s law and the electrical components and how they operate. This is essential for adjusting your vape and the vapor production of your device.
Let’s take a look at Ohm’s law - there are 3 main electrical properties to understand:
Now we will work out the wattage with this formula:
Wattage = V²/R
Wattage is important because higher watts produce more heat and ultimately more vapor and flavour of your vape. The lower the resistance the higher your watts will be. With these formulas you can work out exactly what you will need for building your perfect coil to match your device's potential.
Knowing exactly what volts your battery output has is crucial for building, if your battery cannot support the level of watts your device is pumping out it may burn out your coil instantly or worse, make your battery blow up.
If you feel lost and or overwhelmed do not fear, take a look at steam-engine a technical cheat sheet that will help you work out the perfect, safe setup.
Let’s get to the fun part and start building!
If you are a beginner at building coils, we recommend a building kit that includes all of the needed tools and equipment, these can be found at your local Dragon Vape vape store or online at www.Canadianvape.com
Building coils are cheap as it allows you to mainly use your own tools and household items such as nail clippers and plyers, but for people who would be interested in getting a kit look at something similar to the coil master kit.
The most common and recommended wire to use is a 26-28 gauge Kanthal wire, however you could also use Nichrome, Pure Nickle, Stainless Steel, Flat Kanthal.
This is the material that will hold the e-juice, the best practice here is to make sure to use organic unbleached Japanese cotton (boiling it can also make sure it is safe from any unwanted pesticides if it is not organic).
Now that you have all the supplies needed, let's get building!
