Included coil size?
Hi ive been using my new rba base and have really liked the coil installed in it,better than what ive used in the past.
Just wondering if anyone knows the gauge wire and size of coil or even better if theres a sku for some pre wrapped?
Not sure if its kanthal or nichrome either
Ive also just ordered a couple of packs of 100 screws from amazon so hopefully theyrr the right size

two buddies of mine bought an anuthentic kanger subtank - the coil was 2.5mm when i checked them before rebuilding them ( between my 8 "friends that vape" i literally maintain ALL of their gear....)

as far as gauge wire, im not sure. but i do believe the wire is nichrome, going by the "feeling/look" of the wire. its definitely not kanthal

I think Kanger puts a 26AWG .5-ohm (about 5 wraps) Nichrome-80 coil with 2.5mm ID in there at the factory. You can find pre-made coils that fit this spec but you will need to unwrap or add a half-wrap wrap to them. Most pre-made coils have legs leading in the same direction and this RBA wants the legs in opposite directions.
