What is RDA and RTA (part 2)

With RDA or/and RTA will be there some improvement in vaping?

I would say both of these can suite only fanatic individuals who have a lot of time in their hands to build all that coils. It still could be a decent choice for general public, but for better vaping there is no need in any of them. No, they do not mean better vaping.

There are already better vape tanks by itself which can produce sub ohm big vape clouds without any problems. Simple action with replacement coil then fills that tank and simply be ready to vape. You do not need to build that coils for better vaping.

There are already modern vape tanks with replaceable coils. Their new design offers a great selection of that levels of resistance. No need to bother for your own. In our shop we have even our own premade coils for better vaping, for optimum one.

So, it’s all thinks for hobby people. Most people just want the process along with results. So ready-made solution is hassle-free for them.

Coils, how to build your own?

Still could be somewhat enjoyable process for someone to build coils for RTA and RDA. But he needs a lot of knowledge about OHM law. If you will provide too much power for coil resistance - it could be a problem.

Anyway, we will try to cover how to build the coil. It will not be a full guide just a brief overview.

  1. First of all, you need to obtain all the materials, needed for building coil like for example wire, wire cutters, scissors, tweezers and ceramic one, coil Jig and for sure screwdriver.
  2. Coil wire need to be around the coil jig. You need to calculate the diameter of the coil, number of wraps and gauge of the wire.
  3. Cut this coil wire and put it into the deck of atomizer. Screws need to be tightened and excess wire trimmed.
  4. Center the coil with the tweezers. Do it between the posts of atomizer of yours.
  5. Connect to reader of resistance in order for check resistance levels.
  6. Choose some needed power level and test the coil with fire. It should heat evenly and there should be orange glow. Then use heat resistant tweezers made of ceramic so that coils heat evenly.
  7. Allow coil to cool by removing mod. You should run cylindrical shape through the coil. Scissors should be used to trim the wick. Allow 1 cm or more.

Getting that wick right and getting whole coils to heat evenly could be a tricky task. A lot of steps need to be done as you may see. But as you already know all of this is not necessary. Just use some modern device.
