wire diameter
« on: June 11, 2012, 10:40:09 PM »

Ok, while I´ve used 0.15mm wire on my bulli, at 5 turns, what would I do with 0.20mm wire? I guess the resistance would be less, so do I use more turns?
Is there a known logic between voltage/resistance/wire diameter?

Usually the thinner the wire the higher the resistance

It's like a hosepipe. The bigger the diameter the more water can get through.

Cool!
so that means less turns on thinner wires then?

resident geniuses, I thank you!  :D

5 turns of .15 I get around 2.4ohms
5 turns of .20 I get around 1.3ohms

So not nessesery thinner wires equals less turns it depends on the resistance you require :)

quite so!  thicker wire = less rsistance so more turns if you´re using .20  for the same rsistance .... I think I got it.....
reaches for multimeter.....

Thicker wire will also improve the vapourproduction due to bigger surface

Yeah thinner wire equals less turns but what I meant was that if you want a 2.4ohm coil with .20 wire you would need like 9 turns. But you would not use .20 to get a 2.4ohm coil you would use .15 so really you still use the same amount of coils just different thickness of wire :)
I'm confusing myself now haha :)

Twisting two pieces of 0.15 wire together to one and putting it in 6 coils around 6 strands of wick gives a really nice vape.

I pretty much throw a coil on lol, poke it around with a pin and vape, check the resistance later out of curiosity. Not had a coil on the Bulli that didn't do the job (excluding my first couple of attempts) regardless of resistance.
