    Anyone care to explain why is there a need for preheat function?

    Because when you build a coil with such a large mass, it requires a .... ton of power to get it started but would not need that same amount of power to keep going.

    HHAHAA Same i still dont get what that function is for. Maybe because i only use Kanthal so it'll never need that much power? Correct me if I'm wrong maybe I'm just a noobie builder.

    It's almost like how temp control works, without the regulating feature.

    If you see what happens when you use, say, 100W @ 280C for a .3ohm ss coil, it will fire at 100W for X seconds until the coil reaches 280C, then the power applied will drop till maybe 40W to maintain 280C.

    I've never really tried temp control yet either. Hmmmm what wire would you suggest I get to venture out from kanthal? I'm using KanthalA1 24AWG currently.

    Think of it this way,

    Your massive coils need 1-2second to heat up at 60watts

    Using pre-heat, you can bump it to 80w for 2 seconds, to reduce the ramp up time

    Go nichrome or go home, hahahaha. Its all I use these days, except for ribbon wire cos nichrome ribbon is difficult to find.

    Also, don't use nichrome if you are allergic to nickel. Go SS316L!

    You can't do TC with kanthal. The resistance profile of the metal doesn't have enough variance as it heats up for the mod to read the temperature of the coil.
    I like SS for temp control. Get a fine gauge and try making your own quad twisted wires.
