    I really need to grab some of this to try next time I place a wire order. I have read good things about it. I got a 'toomanytabs' tab open to that page on AVS in my vape shopping category, I just still got a lot of 316l clapton and round wire to vape up yet.

    The first experiment didn't go well. I get vapor but no flavor. Back to work as I am sure it is user error. :(

    Where are the charts, I never saw a chart for the SS316 clapton wire.

    I normally order kanthal clapton wire from lightning vapes, but from people here recommending AVS, decided to try out there SS316 clapton wire.

    Placed order, and 15 minutes I get a shipping email, now that is fast work :thumb:

    The charts are under the area where you choose how much you want and add to cart.

    Update on the experiment with the 430 SS wire. I believe the problem was with the way I set my Tesla Nano. I reset it to TCR mode, without choosing a wire type, and it is working just fine. *duh*

    I had to set TCR when I tried out 430 fused clapton coil. I think it was .00135, not sure though. I prefer 316l, but many have switched to 430 exclusively. I just play with tc occasionally.

    @Letitia - I think that was my problem. In TCR mode, the 430 fused clapton is working just fine. I will try the 316l next but wanted to experiment with the 430 just for the sake of the experiment.

    I just prefer it. Works great in power mode. Not much of a tinker style vaper & I find tc a little frustrating.

    I see they have that chart for the 430, but not for the 316 though, shame, but I'll work it out :)

    I am not really a tinkerer myself but don't want to miss out on something. God forbid! LOL I have to be in the mood to tinker and since my husband is off and is watching bad movies, it seemed like a good time.

    They seem to have charts for most, but not all, of the wire types. I guess they figure you can use Steam Engine for the ones with no chart.

    I only wrap when I want to change it up a bit. Been trying to talk myself into making a new coil for SMM for several days. Which is sad, it does only take a few minutes! Doesn't help that I love AVS tri-core FC prebuilts. Ordered the 30gx3/38g and put one in Nano yesterday, ramp time is great. Usually order thicker ones.

    IMO, we should do what makes us happy. I like being able to roll a coil, but sometimes I don't want to. I have a box full of prebuilt Kanthal coils and I will use them. They are assorted, so I can try different kinds of wire. The favorite from that box is an alien clapton coil that I am still using in one tank.

    AVS aliens are great in Nano; keep the juice bottle close, you'll need it! Flavor is amazing. Haven't tried kanthal aliens yet. Ni80 aliens are good too. Yeah, I'm glad I can wrap. Do like to switch out coils & try to keep it fresh and interesting.

    I have found GeekVape's staggered fused Clapton coils to of great build quality, plenty of extra lead to re-size the coil up to 4mm and have been pretty tasty!

    Here's my suggestion. Buy an Avidartisan Daedalus DIY Tool and make whatever kind of clapton wire you want. It's simple and quick. I use mine to make fused claptons mostly. You can obviously make wire nobody sells. I get my wire from kbeevapor.com

    You
    You can use Stainless in Power or TC mode. I love stainless, it seems like a much cleaner taste
