Dual coils on a regulated mod?
The resistance is listed at ~0.15om in the description, am I right to assume that's PER COIL? If so that wouldn't this make them difficult to use on a non-mech mod in VW? And that would mean TRIPLE coils would be totally out the window.

Is this largely a property of the wire material - ie Ni80? And if so would I be better off going for a kanthal or SS version instead (especially if potentially using them in a triple coil setup - unlikely I will do so, but I'd at least like the option)?

Yes, that's 0.15 per coil.

Go Kanthal SKU 9665015 or a mix of Kanthal and SS SKU 9666454

We need some kindergarten tier electrical engineering tutorial...

The "same" coil in kanthal would only get you up to 0.2Ω. There are far, far better ways to get fat coils than using parallel 22-gauge. 4 28-gauge cores gets you almost the same width (it's a little less than a tenth of a millimetre wider per wrap than the 2 by 22), more surface area, almost double the resistance and will ramp up twice as quickly (because there's about half the mass) using the same materials.

I usually do opt for the multi-strand clapton wires, like what you described (my current build uses the 4x28awg cores / 38awg wrap) bought on a spool. They do definitely kill it in regards to the surface area, for sure.
As for pre-coiled aliens, well, 99% of the aliens on fasttech are either not "aliens" or just not in stock ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
