Dry Burning and Pulsing your Coils: What You Need to Know...

Author: David Mottram Created: 18/04/2019 Last Modified: 25/04/2019  


Back in 2016, scientific friend to the vapersphere (and all-round good egg) Dr Kanstantinos Farsalinos inadvertently caused a kerfuffle by discussing “dry burning” coils in an interview on what was the old Ry4 vape radio channel. Concerns fluttered across the internets that we were exposing ourselves to potential unknown harms when building and maintaining our wire and coils for vaping. We panicked. We argued. We consulted arcane metallurgic grimoires and tomes. But mostly we just argued, nothing much actually happened, and the rest, as they say, is confined to the lore of vape history....


But some effects of that discussion remain. With the massive popularity of complex coils like Fused, Staple Staggered Fused and Alien Clapton coils, and their increasing use amongst folk relatively new to the rebuildable atomiser world, people are (quite rightly) asking questions about the materials and techniques they’re now using. They want to know how to correctly make their resistance wire work properly for them. They want to know what’s the best way for them to clean their coils. They want to know how to make their wire and coils last as long as they possibly can. All of this this they want to do effectively, and most importantly, they want to do it safely.


Is dry burning and pulsing my coils going to make me die? A reasonable question I’m sure most of us would agree.

400 Watts?! Why??!!

400 Watts! Why??!!
Good question. A box mod with the ability to safely deliver 400 watts of power does at first glance appear to be a little bonkers. In an interview with DJLSB, Brandon from Evolv (the manufacturers of the DNA 250C board for modders) said 400 watts was unvapeable.Why? Because he’d tried it. So why would he make a board that does such a thing? I mean, surely the “wattage race” of a few years ago is over, right?
Fortunately there’s a bit more to it than just wattage willy-waving though. The DNA 250C board is a remarkable piece of electronic engineering. It features not only variable wattage, temperature control (all pioneered and developed by Evolv) but also utilises the groundbreaking “Replay” function. This function will work with any temperature sensitive wire material (such as Stainless Steel 316L, Titanium and NiFe30). Dubious results with Nichrome (Ni80 / Ni90) can be achieved but it is not recommended, and unpredictable Kanthal (although a mix of 316L and Kanthal can be used) is definitely unadvisable. This feature allows the vaper to simply adjust their vape to taste using wattage, then when they’ve found the “sweet spot” click “Save” and the device will enter “Replay” mode. This will then deliver the same vape experience to the user over and over until the atomiser runs low on liquid. At this point the useful temperature limiting of temp control kicks in and prevents any nasty and unpleasant “dry hit”. So at the push of a button you have the same sweet spot vape again and again until either you battery needs charging or you’re out of liquid. It’s like some sort of pleasurable vaping Groundhog Day. And almost as cool as Bill Murray.
