    I've looked for answers to this question on here and was not able to find any. What is the difference between annealed 316L and non-annealed 316L other than softness/springiness? Is there any difference in taste, resistance, longevity?

    Annealed metal - means heated to make it less springy and make it softer. If you dry burn coil, you anneal it anyway. So, most of us are vaping on annealed metal anyway. I prefer to buy annealed wire - easier to work with.

    Thanks for the response. I need to get some wire and l I can get 100 ft for 5.99 or 100 ft of annealed for 7.99. I've been using UD 316L from a small 30 ft spool. I'm assuming it has not been annealed.

    I would recommend non annealed..

    Hit it with a torch or dry burn the coil and save $2.

    So, to save $2 I should invest in a torch? Or use springy wire to make a coil?

    I don't ss316 26awg to be springy or hard to work with. I use it on stm coil head rebuilds & the dreaded capture screws on the kfuns..
