Wrapping your own coils to the RBA is one of the most enjoyable things to us vape nerds. In the beginning it wont be easy, but as with anything else: practice makes perfect (and coil wrapping is no exception). To get started you need some tools and accessories. Either you buy a package that includes all you need, such as DIY Kit V2 from Coil Master V2, or just buy whatever you need from the list below.
This is needed to wrap your coils:
- Micro Coiler: To wrap your wires around, have measures for inner diameter.
- Precision screwdriver: To adjust the coil of your atomizer, skit this one i if you got a similar one at home.
- Ceramic Tweezers: For adjusting your coil once its installed in the base, ceramic tip is a must.
- Cutting Pliers: To cut wires, skit this one i if you got a similar one at home.
- Wire: The wire that makes the coil. Use Kanthal for watt mode only, Stainless Steel for watt/temperature control (TC). Titan, Nickel and Nichrome is used for TC only.
- Cotton: Threaded through the coil and moistened with e-juice.
- Ohm meter or tab: When you’ve wrapped your coil you must test it’s resistance, the easiest is via a separate ohmmeter or a tab where you can even fire of the coil. Testing resistance can also be done in a regulated mod that displays ohms in a display.
How to calculate wraps and ohms:
Now when you’ve bought everything its time to wrap the coil, but how many wraps? That’s easily calculated on either the site Steam Engine, the Android apps Vape Tool eller Vaper’s Toolbox, or similar apps for Apple products. Search for coil build, vape or ohm in Google Play or App Store.
When it comes down to the actual coil wrapping we’d recommend that you following one or several Youtube guides. Below is a a couple of videos from RiP Trippers linked, that show you how you get started:
