    Just wondering why the 0.2 ohm premade Herakles coils is rated for a lower minimal watt (30 I think) compared to the 0.6 which is rated for minimum 50 watts... Shouldn't it be the reverse?


    Not a very dense vape with the heralkes 0.2 in a starre tank at 50-55 watts with the air closed off a lot....

    To do with wire used would be my guess. Kanthal A1 l to hit .2 you would need 22Gauge that is way to thick in a stock coil head. Rubber grommet will not sit flat. SS316L is a lot lower resistance and a higher gauge wire (thinner) can be used. For .5 I can use I believe 26 gauge Kanthal A1 to hit that mark. This is only a guess on my part but I don't see any other way. CHEERS!

    The .2 is probably NICKEL wire or somthing for TC vaping. If so, not a good idea to get it real hot.

    Then it's thin wire relative to the wire used in the .5, could be same wire. In this case it may have a higher heat range at lower wattages.
