Stealthvape has developed a reputation among vapers for delivering the highest quality and personalising our service. We value our customers and treat you as we would want to be treated ourselves
For the more advanced vaper, we stock the best quality Kanthal A1 resistance ribbon for making and rebuilding coils for atomisers. Kanthal A1 is more stable at higher temperatures than cheaper alternatives.
If you look at the many five star reviews on the site you will see that our customers can tell the difference between our high quality product and the alternatives available on the market.
As one customer, TheFury79, wrote in his feedback: “Ok it’s just a reel of Kanthal right? Nah, there are varying degrees of quality in any metals that are bought. And as a person trained in blacksmithing, I like to think I know such quality. This Kanthal’s conductivity is great, its heat retention is excellent, and its durability is fabulous. I have used Kanthal from all over the world, and this is amongst the cream of the crop.”
Because we know that you all have different demands, given the growth in atomisers designed for use with ribbon, we have constantly expanded the range and currently offer fifteen different options of width and thickness to choose from.
Your 5-metre order will come wrapped around a rigid piece of card enabling easy access, use and storage.
But we’ll leave you with the words of another happy customer, Gary: “Fast, fast, fast, wow! Well-impressed, brill communication and the product speaks for itself. Top class. Cheers everyone. Will be ordering again soon :)”
When trying new wire or different coiling diameters by changing wicks it can be a hit or miss affair trying to work out how many wraps will provide the desired resistance, especially if you are new to coiling.
We would like to present a calculator for your use that takes all of the hardwork/guesswork out of the process. Simply enter in you wire and wick details then the resistance you'd like to achieve and the calculator will do the rest - telling you how many wraps to make.
Clearly this will depend on how tightly you wrap your coils but it beats sticking a wet finger in the air. The calculator works for different sizes, types and even mixed wires.
