Description

Kanthal A1 Heat Resistance Wire

Kanthal wire is a ferritic iron, chromium-aluminium alloy and is used to build Rebuild-able Atomizers (RBA’s) and Rebuild-able Dripping Atomizers (RDA’s) for Mechanical Mods (Mech Mods). Kanthal Wire can be heated at temperatures up to 1400°C (2550°F). The actual type of wire size is identified by Gauge (AWG). Kanthal Wire can be used in many different sizes and on many different types of Rebuildable Atomizers. There are many different types of wick you can use to wrap your Kanthal wire around as well which will determine the outcome of your Ω (Ohms).

Kanthal Wire Beginners Guide

What is Kanthal Wire and the differences between Kanthal Wire Gauge?

So you want to start building vape pen mods, you have an idea about Kanthal wire, but you’re not too sure how to use it right. Kanthal wire is pretty confusing at first, so after reading through this Kanthal Wire Beginners Guide, you should have a better understanding about the sizes that kanthal wire comes in, and what each size amounts to. When dealing with Kanthal wire the different size Gauge (AWG) will give you a certain amount of Ω (Ohms), so it is very important to understand which size Kanthal Wire Gauge will give you higher or lower Ω (Ohms).

Understanding Kanthal Wire Gauge (AWG)

The typical Kanthal wire Gauge (AWG) ranges from 24 to 34 when building atomizers, and change in diameter as the Gauge (AWG) changes. To understand the Diameters of Kanthal wire you must know that the Higher the number Gauge (AWG) = thinner wire = higher resistance per foot and the Lower the number Gauge (AWG) = thicker wire = lower resistance per foot. When you are dealing with length, the longer the wire = higher resistance and the shorter the wire = lower resistance.

Below is an Ω (Ohms) chart for all you visual folks that will explain the Kanthal Gauge, Diameter and Resistance. Just remember when you are working with Rebuildable Atomizers (RBA’s) and Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDA’s) that you must always BE SAFE and test your Ω (Ohms) on an Ω (Ohms) Meter before you hook anything up to your Mechanical Mod (Mech Mod or Vape Mod) and start vaping.
