    Hello guys,
    I got a subox mini v2 with the rba etc...
    I want to make my own coil to sub-ohm
    I don't know what kind of wire should i use, when i use the coil calculator for a Kanthal A1, to get a 0.5 it says 2/3 wraps and some mm long cable which looks pretty weird to me and unfeasible.
    can you guys helps on that ?
    Thank's

    Thicker wire more wraps, thinner wire less wraps for the same resistance.

    7 wraps of 24ga A1 kanthal, 2.5mm inside dia. should come in around .5 ohms...

    Using 26ga at the same specs, it would be 4 wraps to get around .5 ohms..

    Thank you @Bro2032 !
    Sorry for the delay, i actually don't have gauge, i'm going to buy some that's why i'm asking
    I'll go with the 26ga if I find some
