Kanthal A-1 Flat Resistance Ribbon Wire - This item is NOT for beginners - See warning below

This is a package containing 5+ feet of Kanthal A-1 Flat Resistance Ribbon Wire.

Kanthal A-1 is a ferritic iron-chromium-aluminium alloy (FeCrAl alloy) for use at temperatures up to 1400°C (2550°F). The alloy is characterized by high resistivity and very good oxidation resistance. For our purposes, it is used for making coils for rebuild-able atomizers.

Kanthal A-1 Flat Resistance Ribbon (as with most wire) is identified by dimensions. The table below contains the main relevant technical specifications for the different sizes that we carry.

NOTE: Due to their low resistance characteristics,  0.8 x 0.1  and  0.9 x 0.1  are only recommended for very advanced users.

WARNING

Rebuild-ables are for experts, not average or beginner vapers. At a minimum you should have (and know how to use) a multimeter, know when a meter should be used and have basic knowledge of how electronic devices work. Without these things, these devices cannot be safely used.

Things to note:

  • A faulty coil can damage the atomizer device and/or battery
  • A coil should be tested with a meter and visually inspected before using
  • A good coil can easily become faulty with improper or excessive (which is improper) handling
  • If a coil "kinks" throw it away and start over
  • Even after testing good, if not properly installed, a coil may still become faulty at any time after installation

NOTE: Because of the nature and inherent risk these items are sold without instructions and there is no warranty offered for this product.
