    Hello everyone! I just joined this group. I'm looking for some advice on temp control vaping. Not sure but from what I've read so far, the fireluke x1 mesh coils can't be used for temp vaping, is this correct? I switched by geekvape nova to TCR mode and the hit is definitely different than with wattage. Am I imagining the difference?

    Welcome to ECF, Ezmfne. Two of my mods have TC capabilities, but I don't do TC at all. Sorry I can't help you with that, but I'm sure others will.

    Hello @Ezmfne, as far as I'm aware the X1 coils aren't made using a TC capable metal.

    They either use Kanthal or Ni80.

    TC capable metals are.

    Stainless Steel
    NiFe
    Titanium
    Nickel

    To add to Mordacai's excellent post above, worth pointing out if you can, get SS (Stainless Steel) coils, theyre the most flexible as theyre dual mode VW/Power (non-TC) & TC compatible. So if you decide TC is not for you, you can still use them in VW/Power mode...

    Never fire any TC coils, apart from SS, in VW/Powermode, as some metals can release toxic particles above a certain temp

    Seems as though there's TX Mesh and M Pro Mesh SS316L options available for possible TC usage.
    Coils | FreeMax

    X Mesh SS316L seems to have been discontinued.

    But if you can find SS316L coils a good starting point for TCR is 88-92, max temp 250°C.

    Temp control is amazing, i use it seldom, SS, nickel and Ti are the capable metals to work with!

    never dry fire Ti wire, SS can do both, wattage and TC, please let us now more about your adventure on TC, some mods need also a TCR value to work with, for example my asmodus runs SS on TCR mode, 0.00088 value,

    Regards,

    Fixed it for you @P3ch3, as you forgot that Nickel can't be dry fired either.

    Also for further reference for OP and others who may stumble across this thread, dry firing is where you heat the coil of a rebuildable atomiser gently with enough wattage that it glows. It's used as a way of cleaning coils and extending their lifespan.
