What is a Coil?

In vaping terms, a coil, is the wire that is used to vaporize the e liquid by creating an electrical circuit. Coils are usually made up of Nichrome or Kanthal wire.

In the United States, the wire being used to make it is measured in AWG, while the rest of the world measures in the metric system.

What are the benefits of using custom/twisted wire?

Twisted wires provides a different dynamic of surface area to wick. By having small pockets for air
and juice in the tiny spaces of the wire, flavor and/or vapor is enhanced. Twisted wire can also
combine the strength of 2 or more wires and condense it to a smaller size and also share the heat
generated to maximize efficiency.
