Although I have not seen them on FT, Kanger Subtank RBA Pre-Built Coils are sold. Authentic, 0.5Ω at a good price.

They would fit, but the Subtank RBA has the leads from the coil going opposite directions of each other. The pre-coiled wires here have the leads going in the same direction, which is great for RDA's but means that you'll have to bend the leads and undo half a wrap to make them fit in the RBA.

What is your preferred Ω for this? Go by that, keep in mind that undoing half a wrap will slightly lower the Ω of the coil. So one that is listed as 0.6Ω with 5.5 wraps, when unwrapped to 5 wraps, could drop to around 0.55Ω. All depends on the wire gauge and coil diameter though.

I hope I was able to help. Personally, I use 26awg kanthal and wrap my own coils. It's nice being able to adjust the Ω by +/- a wrap and so on.

I'd just wrap my own coils. With that being said, I like larger diameter coils for less spittle, but that means going with a thicker wire.. Thinking 24ga should do the trick. Will order some of that with my next juice purchase.

Or you can use these.

You get to wrap your own coils, know the resistance ahead of time, and use them however you like: alone, twisted, or in parallel.
Woah, mama!

Or you can use a jig or drill bit to mount the coil and keep the wraps. It makes it easier to screw down too.
