What Vape Coil Should I Use?

We have 25 coil options for you to choose from, and we’re here to help you decide which coil is right for you. 

With so many options you may not know where to start when making a coil choice. The first thing you’ll need to differentiate is whether you’re shopping for Sai coils or Sequoia coils. The Sai Atomizer has a 22mm diameter and the Sequoia Atomizer has a 25mm diameter so the main differentiation in these coils is the size. 

Next you’ll have to choose which type of coil is best equipped to deliver the results you are looking for. We have four types of coils: Kanthal, Titanium, Stainless Steel, and Ceramic. 

Kanthal is an alloy of iron, chromium, and aluminium. Kanthal cannot be used in temperature control. So these coils are used simply in wattage mode. These coils are heavy hitters, especially the four millimeter variations. Perfect for beginners who aren’t comfortable using temperature control or do not want the hassle of using temperature control. 

Titanium makes great coils as they can be used in temperature control and have very minimal metal flavor. They still provide great hits without being overbearing. The dual titanium coils are great for medicators because they provide a nice mellow hit. The triple titaniums are just like the duals, just more surface so more vape. The triple titaniums provide a little heavier hit than the duals. 

Stainless Steel is the final metal type we use. Stainless steel makes a great coil. It has proven itself to be extremely reliable in temperature control. It’s like your old Toyota, you can rely on it to work properly. Every time. Stainless steel also has a very minimal metal taste. Big stainless steel coils are awesome because it is a big coil that can be used in temperature control. 

Finally we have ceramic coils. There are Ceramic Donuts, Miracle A’s, and Miracle B’s. The Ceramic Donuts are for our flavor chasers out there, as well as medicators, because they provide the best flavor. Although none of our metal coils have a very noticeable metal flavor, when used side by side with the Ceramic Donut you can notice the difference. We tested that here in the office, very scientifically, of course. The Miracle A is a very unique coil because it has two types of ceramic: grey and white. The housing and the majority of the coil is white ceramic, to provide great flavor. While the interior of the coil is grey ceramic. Vic designed the interior with grey ceramic because it is more porous than white and helps keep your product in place. Miracle B’s are exclusively for distillates. 

If you decided to pick up a ceramic coil you’re all set. If you’ve picked a metal type, once you’ve picked one you need to decide if you want a quartz or black ceramic rod. Quartz is smooth, like glass. It also has absolutely no flavor. However, because it is so smooth your product, especially if you overfill your coil, can pool at the bottom of the coil. Black ceramic has some flavor to it, however it is porous so it will hold your product in place. 

Lastly, we have bucket coils. Bucket coils are not for beginners. These coils were designed for users who are familiar with using box mods. There are two different ceramic heaters for the buckets, a donut style and a flat disc style. In the Sai variations the two different heaters does not affect the use or the settings. In the Sequoia variations the flat disc heater in the Quartz Bucket can be bumped up to 50 watts and 500˚F. The Quartz Bucket for the Sequoia ONLY. Bucket coils should be run in temperature control nickel (equivalent to TCR600-700). There’s a lot of discussion about running buckets in TCR300, however that setting isn’t recommended. TCR300 is equivalent to the temperature control titanium, which heats up a couple seconds faster than temperature control nickel. Which when dealing with such small pieces of fragile ceramic can make all the difference in your coil lasting a couple weeks instead of the average lifespan of a couple months. 

The only other thing I wanted to touch on for you guys was if you should or should not lock your resistance. This topic is also heavily talked about. Many recommend that you should lock your resistance, however that isn’t the best for your coil. Whether you lock the resistance on your mod or not, the actual real-time resistance will still fluctuate. So if you have yours locked your mod will continue to fire at the locked resistance rather than what your coil is actually at. So we recommend that you don’t lock your resistance.
