    Lovely old job, have updated TCR values in the evic and the koopor, still running too hot in the koopor. Have to offset 150°f lower on the koopor. Cheers @Tubbyengineer

    I'm using titanium for a month on my evic vtc mini, now using TCR set at 366, and I still can't vape in a decent way..
    I have a 0,4mm wire that I use for 2,5/3mm diameter coil with 6-7 wraps spaced.
    when I lock the resistance it works but after 15-20ml the coil and cotton are burnt (230°C at 18/20W - 0,38ohms)
    I never did dry burn and I clean the wire with hot water and soap before to use it.

    Which Ti are you using as a matter of interest? When you feel it starting to burn a bit, maybe try re-locking down the post screws. I found sometimes that Ti can loosen up after a few hits and things tend to go haywore if you dont keep everything tight!

    NO, It's very safe as long as you don't overheat it. Titanium Dioxide has been linked to cancer, but so have a number of other common metals - most of them in some form of Oxide though. Titanium is Flammable, it's also pretty difficult to put out - fortunately in the quantities involved in coils you'll only geta brief but very hot flame...
    Really unless you're using it in Premade stock coils it's a wire strictly for experienced builders...

    This topic should be read by the vapers atleast one because safety's always first.
