Got to love Youde, they make a lot of great stuff (would be cool to see what a MOD from them would be like), they have a bunch of wire on the market that is not bad and at good prices. Well now they have a roll of Clapton wire (15ft) for a pretty good deal (less than the cost of one set of pre-made Clapton coils from a local builder). It’s a great way to try your hand at making some Claptons without all the extra effort, it’s easy to wrap and cut. We built dual 2.5mm 6 wrap and they came out to 0.37 Ohms.
This is the first we have played with Claptons and have to say they are some tasty warm little vape coils. They need a little ramp up (about a second) if they are cold to get cooking, guessing its the fact that this wire is all Kanthal (all that wire takes longer to heat up). Most builders either use a Nichrome 80 Core or Outer to help with ramp up. But once they are warm the flavour is very clean and crisp and the coils don’t seem to cake as fast. At least with this wire it needs more wattage then simple coils, for example on our 0.37 build we would run a simple coil at no more than say 50W, well the Claptons need at least 60W to produce the flavour and vapor we are looking for.
Claptons are a more intense vape in every way… Crisper flavour, Longer inhales, Warmer (only near the end, it ramps), Burn Cleaner, and produce more Vapor. We may just found a new obsession. This wire is a great way to get started (make sure you have a least one atty with decent sized post holes), go grab yourself some!
