Stainless Steel 316L
£3.50 Inc Vat
Stainless Steel 316L is an advanced metal wire used to wrap your own coils for rebuildable atomisers, RTAs & drippers. It can be used for both wattage/power and temperature control modes. A 10m roll like this will make 50-100 standard coils.
Stainless Steel 316L wire has a very low resistance and is for advanced users only – the resistance is much lower than standard kanthal and will draw a large amount of power from your batteries – please make sure that you are only using high amp rated batteries & have a good understanding of Ohms Law.

It is important to understand the resistance variation of SS 316 and choose the right gauge/diameter. We recommend always using an ohms reader if using a mechanical mod – most variable wattage devices will read your ohms – for a standard coil build we recommend 6-8 wraps.
It is also helpful to use an online voltage/wattage/resistance calculator like this
Keep out of reach of children. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. IF SWALLOWED: Immediately call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician. Rinse mouth. Dispose of container in accordance with local regulations.
