    Has anyone tried a tungsten coil, if so how did it vape? Also is there anywhere I can buy prebuilt tungsten coils? I just want to try one and see how it works in tc. It has a higher tcr so I’m curious how it would work in tc mode and just how it generally works.

    I've never heard of tungsten coils for vaping.

    Iirc there’s something terribly wrong with tungsten as a vape coil. I forget what though. Probably poisonous byproducts of oxidation. That’s the usual problem

    Never read Anything about someone using a Tungsten Alloy for a Coil. Not sure how Malleable a Tungsten Alloy wire would be?

    But if could make a Coil out of it, it would Probably last a Very Long time. Because Tungsten maintains its Physical Properties even at Extremely High Temperatures. And is pretty Resistant to Thermal Breakdown. It also has one of the Highest Melting Points of any "Metal" I know of.

    No Clue as to the Toxicity of Tungsten with regards to Vaping.

    I barely know what tungsten IS let alone how it vapes. If you haven't been able to find tungsten wire for vaping OR prebuilt coils made out of it, I do wonder if it's even safe for vaping. I did a quick search and didn't find anything definitive on it.

    I'd proceed with caution, if at all. Plenty of other wires safe for TC vaping...

    BTW - Not sure how Accurate the Table is in the link below? But check out the Resistance of 20ga Tungsten Wire as compared to 20ga 304 SS.

    Resistance Values of Various Metals.

    Yikes!

    FWIW, I'm not positive that it's Dicodes (I think it is), but I've read specs for a TC mod that had Tungsten as an option in the native menu.

    Tungsten is a very hard metal and might last a long time. But it is very brittle and will break like glass sometimes.
