    coil wrap

    so im guessing the more wrap of coil= higher ohm. example 10 wrap could be around 1.3 ohm. 5 wrap could be .7 ohm?

    yes no?

    i know the gauge wire play a role too.

    There's a bunch of factors to getting a certain ohm. Number of wraps, gauge size, what you're actually wrapping, how many coils.

    I can do a 3/4 wrap of 28g on my kayfun and get 0.6 ohms, while a 3/4 wrap of 30g will get me a 0.9-1.0 ohms.

    What is it that you're actually asking? What are you aiming for? Clouds? Taste? Something that doesn't taste burnt?
    Not enough to be satisfied, but enough to be broke.

    something that doesnt taste burnt, what im trying to ask is if we all only have 28g wire you wrap it 5 wraps and i wrap it 10 who will have a higher ohm?

    10 wraps. the more wraps there is, the longer it'll take to burn.

    Regarding more wraps, do micro coils of lets say dual coil 7 wraps achieve low ohms?

    Doing dual coils splits the resistance in half. For example, if you have a single 1 ohm coil and then add an identical coil, you'd have a .5 ohm coil.

    Thanks! I was wondering how some are able to get like .5-.6 ohms from a dual micro coil that has like 7 wraps on each coil. Or is that not possible?

    I currently use dual 5 wrap micros at .45 ohm. 7 wraps would probably give you around .55-.5 ohm. That's also considering the inner diameter of your coils. I wrap mine around a 5/64" drill bit. Coils with larger ID will give you higher resistance because it takes a longer length of kanthal to go around each wrap.

    Many thanks for that clarification!

    That's an awesome build right there!
