Different Vape Coil Types

Vape coils are the heart of your mod. They play a vital role in heating the e-liquid and vaporising it. Depending on your vaping needs and experience, there are different types of coils that you can try out.

Each type of coil offers a different vaping experience with various benefits. The type of coil is largely determined by the material used to make the vape wire and also the resistance of the wire.

Low resistance coils produce warmer vapour and larger clouds, while high resistance coils produce a cooler vapour with less clouds.

Some of the different types of vape coils include:

Ceramic Coil

Ceramic is a porous material which means ceramic coils allow air to pass through them exceptionally well. Ceramic coils have a unique smooth draw and most vapers commend the excellent production of flavour from these coils compared to the other coil materials.

Ceramic coils are highly tolerant to high wattage and make the perfect coil for high-powered mods. Compared to cotton coils, ceramic coils also last longer and do a better job of preventing dry hits.

Stainless Steel Coils

There are various grades of stainless steel and the type used in different coils varies. Grade 430 stainless steel is the most commonly used.

This type of stainless steel is best known for its magnetic properties and durability, but other types of stainless steel aren’t far behind.

Stainless steel coils are versatile and perfect in temperature control and wattage modes. With the right amount of care and maintenance, a stainless steel coil can last well over 25 years.

Titanium Coil

Titanium coils are malleable, soft and easy to twist, handle and cut. Compared to stainless steel, titanium coils cost more, but are becoming increasingly popular.

The most notable benefit of using a titanium coil is how clean and crisp it brings out the flavours. It’s worth noting that titanium is often used in fireworks to create sparks which raises questions about its safe use as a coil material.

Titanium coils are compatible with temperature control mode and because of its diversity, most mods will offer a” TC Ti” version of these coils.

Kanthal Coil

Kanthal coils are a blend of iron, chromium and aluminium. The wire is popularly used in pre-made and home-made coils.

One of the notable features of Kanthal coils is the super quick ramp up time and the impressive amount of vapour the coil produces. These types of coils are best suited for wattage mode.

Nickel Coil

There is a ton of Nickel wires on offer. The best option is the Ni200 which is a 99.6% nickel alloy. Most temperature control mods use Nickel coils because of its low resistance. However, Nickel coils shouldn’t be fired for too long and are not ideal for variable wattage and variable voltage devices.

Nichrome Coil

Nichrome is an alloy of 20% Nickel and 80% Chromium. Coils made from this alloy heat up faster than Kanthal with a sufficient amount of cloud production and a warm and pleasant vape. The alloy protects the heating element from oxidation ensuring consistent flavour production.

When looking through the various types of coils, there are also sub-ohm and plus-ohm vape coils which are designed for use with the respective devices. Ensuring you get the right coil for the right job can go a long way in improving your vaping experience.
