This is a spreadsheet of all 127 atomizers ever purchased and sold in the past 10 years to date. Eventually, I plan to blog about every one I still have in hand.
Lofty goals indeed.
Introduced in 2018, it looks like the last of the Pixi rda’s from Vapefly are selling out here in the USA but are still available in China so I got one after seeing Athanasios Sclavos’s post in the Box Mod Mafia’s FB group page and watching a few reviews I forgot about. More info here: http://www.vapefly.net/vapefly-pixie-rda/ I picked up the last gun metal one here: https://www.myfreedomsmokes.com/pixie-22mm-rda-by-vapefly.html $19.
On another note, Uwell sent me an email and have finally released a mesh coil for the Crown V3 sub-ohm tank. I picked up a pack of 4 for $18 directly from their store. No where on the site do they mention the material they are using for the mesh. Hopefully its made from stainless steel. https://mall.myuwell.com/collections/coils/products/crown-iii-replacement-coils. All the new tanks they produce come with mesh coils now.
It’s great to see they are still supporting their older products with new materials and not forcing their customers to buy newer devices to get newer materials. Uwell was one of the first companies to offer stainless steel round wire coils for sub-ohm tanks for better flavor and temp control abilities instead of just kanthal.
In yesterday, very nice little flavor banger. I like the fully open AFC. Metal is thin but holds up well. Squonks well and very easy to build. A winner for $20.
In yesterday, mesh coils are made of FeCrAl or Kanthal. Great flavor and vapor production but sorry, no temp control.
I am waiting patiently for the end of the month for the release of the OFRF mesh tank. The GEAR is one of my favorite RDTA’s and is one of the better made devices out there made in China and now they have a second device to try besides their individual mesh coils.
Picked up the Ardent RDA by Stan of TenaciousTXVapes in February to match up my polished SS Dreamer mech mod and am really happy with the purchase. This RDA offers literally tons of vapor and good flavor with a hybrid connection to the Dreamer for a low voltage drop instant connection to the battery. I occasionally need a huge draw (more air flow) from a mech mod and this definitely fits the bill. If you own the Dreamer you should pick up this atty to fit perfectly as a pair here: https://lucidrda.com/product/ardent-rda-by-tenacioustxvapes-and-timesvape/
I forgot how good the Cleito 120 was… my Cleito 22’s coil was starting to spit no matter how I tried, I could not get it to stop, raising or lowering the voltage. This only meant that the cotton was just not touching the coil anymore, somewhere. So I took out my trusty 120 and inserted a new coil. Voila! Lot’s of great flavor and tons of vapor. All good once again.
Attention folks, Asia, specifically Wotofo, is making perfect (well almost 🙂 ) designer coils! Someone at Wotofo has listened to someone who knows something about vaping coils.
For the first time, in my vaping history anyway, for less than $1 per coil, I can get really nicely made and very clean designer coils in a packs of 10 each. Yes I know Asia has produced separate coils in various configurations, but they usually are much less complicated or the wrong diameter and of less quantity and quality. Now, we have 3mm (the perfect diameter) N80 coils that I can put in most of my atomizers without much hassle or wishing I could make the ones we see on Instagram, commonly known as coil porn. In my mind, if these were made from stainless steel, they would be perfect. I can’t wait to give them a try and hopefully, I am not allergic to Nickel.
30 coils should last me a long, long time. As I have read, nichrome has a TCR value of 0.000112 or Joyetech format 0011. Ni80 is not intended for use with temp control.
