Quick Overview

Kanthal Resistance Wire is our preferred resistance wire for coiling rebuildable Atomizers.


For beginners and pros alike, many of you may not fully understand the benefits of how the different thicknesses of the American Wire Gauge (AWG) Kanthal Wire (KW) can be used with various rebuildable atomizers.

THE FINER THE WIRE = THE HIGHER THE RESISTANCE The AWG 34 wire (0.15mm in diameter) produces HIGHER ohms over a SHORTER distance, as compared to the commonly used AWG 32 (0.20mm in diameter) which is slightly thicker, but would require more coils to achieve the same resistance. TWISTING THE WIRE LOWERS THE RESISTANCE BY HALF If you wish to use twisted wire, you will need to double the amount of coils to achieve the same resistance. DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KW A1, A & D When selecting KW for purchase please note the differences: Kanthal A1: Max temp: 1399C, 1.45 Electrical resistivity at 20C ohms Kanthal A: Max temp: 1349C, 1.39 Electrical resistivity at 20C ohms Kanthal D: Max temp: 1299C, 1.35 Electrical resistivity at 20C ohms As you can see Kanthal A1 has a HIGHER max temperature threshold than Kanthal A, and Kanthal A is HIGHER than Kanthal D. In e-cig terms, A1 wire is slightly less likely to "pop" if a short or hotspot occurs. Although, the differences are most likely small
