Stainless Steel 316L

£3.49 Inc Vat


10ml Reel

SS 316 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.

SS 316 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 that are in excellent condition and that your regulated mod can safely fire to a low resistance or if you are using a mechanical mod, that you know absolutely everything about battery safety, building and wicking your coils correctly. If you are unsure about the compatibility of your device and SS 316, we advise against purchasing this product.

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
