Available in Kanthal?
Will these coilology coil items be available in Kanthal as well? They show them on their site but wondering if FT will be getting them.

Thanks!

As far as I know, Ni-chrome and Kanthal are almost the same. Ni-chrome heats faster than Kanthal and can be used in power mode. Unless someone has new information, then that's something else.

Some people are sensitive to nichrome and get a weird taste from it, and kanthal has a higher resistance, which can make it more appropriate for a given build (so, the "same" coil) when you're working with a fixed voltage (like on a mech mod) or a mod that doesn't handle very low resistances. These coils are rated at 0.1 ohms, which are too low for a lot of older mods and potentiometer-type VV mods.

Those take ages to heat up Bikendi, at least the Demon killer ones do since I have had them. The first one mentioned is prolly just as bad since the wrap is on the thicker side

This is exactly why I posted this, Nichrome gives a metallic taste to me so I generally stick to Kanthal. SS316 tastes fine to me as well but I'm not a fan of working with it.

Thank you! those look decent but I would prefer 34-38 outside wrap.

Your welcome👌 I suggest you opening a request ticket and linking FT to the coils you want from Coilology
