Alien?
Is this real alien wire?
Last time was a clapton, listed as alien, this time?
I don't see the weavy structure typical of the alien wire, but i could be wrong.
To me looks more like a fused clapton.
Your thoughts about it?

My eyes aren't good enough to tell from that blurry zoomed out picture.

FT will take close ups of the wire when they actually get it in their hands. I'd wait to order until then.
Joke's on you, this isn't actually a raffle.

Uggh. I guess you need to ask the FT staff (jenny?) directly.
It could be fused or something else for sure.
Request additional pictures or pin good alien pictures of yours to make sure you'll get the right answer.
I DIY these from SS, otherwise would have asked for clarification by myself.
Hope this helps.

All of the pre-made alien wire that I have seen here is flat ribbon wire wrapped Clapton style. Alot of people have a different idea of what "alien" is supposed to mean but that is what the Chinese manufacturers seem to think it is.

Fused Clapton looks wavy because it's two or more wires that don't stay parallel being fused together with a Clapton wrap.

Of course I'm no expert at making wire but I read alot of product listings.

Doesnt look like alien wire to me. More like fused .
US vapers please take the time to visit freetovape(.)org and casaa(.)org. Fight for your right to vape and prevent the FDA from taking control.

Looks like fused clapton to me when I zoom in.

The description of the product is pretty clear. It's two total wires: one flat wire(.3mm*.8mm) wrapped by one round wire (32awg) so it is not fused. Fused means two or more wires being bound (fused) together by a wrap.

Id be willing to put money on it that it will be Staple Wire. Everytime they list alien thats what it turns out to be. If China finds a way to mass produce alien's, I will be blown away.

Not Alien wire at all this is Flat Clapton....Alien has 3 round cores and a stretched re-wrapped clapton...its not Fused either...only contains 2 wires...this is alien:

I highly doubt we will ever see spools of pre-made Alien...it takes too long for the prep and too many variables such as how tight to hold the rewrap etc...not cost effective and not something u can just stick in a drill and call it done
