    Been looking at the CrazyWire closing down sale
    and saw what seemed like some good deals on spools of Clapton.
    The thing is i,m clueless about Clapton wire, having only used Kanthol
    in the past or the free Claptons that come with some RTAs.
    So my question is what Clapton would be best suited for me?
    I mainly vape at 20-25w
    0.6 oHm build
    I use 50/50 juice

    Probably something around 26 or 28AWG single core with 36/38 wrap. I'm currently using Coilology MTL Fused clapton 2 x 30/40 SS316L in the Xeta at 2.5dia to get around 0.5ohm in the BB. Keeping the core/s thin allows for higher ohm builds.

    I cant seem to find anything at (26/28 core 36/38 wrap)
    Should i be aiming for something that is aprox 7.00 Ω/m
    Would this be suitable

    I can't guarantee it's n80, but that's the most common as far as I'm aware.

    Even in the unlikely event it's a different nichrome it'll be extremely close with the calcs.

    Did a 5 wrap, 2.5 ID, coming in 0.7Ω and running at 25w
    Taste is good.
    I am happy. :)
