Does anyone still uses Titanium for coils or is this wire dead?

    I am just wondering if I am the only one who uses Titanium wire for making coils regulary? Titanium is my wire of the choice because I think, according to all informations I read about it, is possibly the safest wire out there (if you use it in TC mode and without dry burning before making coil).

    Am I alone who has that opinion?

    I've never used titanium, went straight to SS since it can be used in wattage and TC mode. :)

    Temco Ti01 is still my favorite wire. Ohms out perfectly for my builds, great battery life with my mods. :)

    How you perceive titanium's performance is up to you, but in terms of ease of use SS has got the edge.

    I still have some Ti around but quit using it when I discovered SS430.

    I agree it is probably the safest (it's pure titanium which is not toxic), but it is tougher to work with than stainless. Also, be sure and only use tempered (cold-rolled or whatever the proper term is) because the annealed stuff will break during vaping. Happened to me a while back -- coil popped in my mouth and I felt it for a few days.

    I use ss 316l just because I like the option of tc and wattage. Going from one to the other and adjusting wattage and temperature changes up the flavor of my juice which I enjoy. I only vape one flavor, which I mix myself, so I guess it’s my way of switching flavors albeit very subtly. I’ve only used ss and kanthal but have never noticed difference in the flavor produced from a wire or tasted a wire flavor at all.

    The problem is when you heat it the surface stops being pure. That’s why you can’t dry burn titanium.

    The small number of responses here surprises me, as I thought titanium was still more common.

    I’m not terribly surprised. A few people are still using it because it’s what they prefer, but it’s just an all together less friendly material than SS and is useful only for TC which a lot of people have stopped messing with. The surprising one to me is that SS is remaining popular with people who no longer TC

    I must have sensitive tastes because when I have tried to use SS, it taste funny to me. But using titanium coils, the vape is full of flavor and I don't have to worry about any burnt hits and its lasts a really long time between cleanings and rewicking. Complete winner to me.

    Like I said preferred by some. I never got into Ti myself. I didn’t mess with TC until SS was already out, and when I did try it I just couldn’t get a really satisfying vape out of it. I could see how some find it to be splendid though. Smoking is just so subjective. It’s all about what your personal experience is.

    So very true about juice flavors, and why I'll usually vape a tankful of a new juice in watts before moving to TC with SS. I've totally hidden menthol, and burned Peanut Butter and Cocoa with TC.
    I dry burn all my wires, mind you it's what I'd call a dull glow at ~8-9 watts till it's even.
    I personally found it a cleaner taste than kanthal.

    Titanium never appealed to me. I bought a spool one time and tried a coil. You can't dry burn it, so a cruddy coil has to be hand washed with a brush. That's too much trouble vs SS316L or Kanthal. SS316L has been my favorite for several years.

    I use titanium and I think it produces the best flavour hands down.
