Kayfun Coil Builds and Examples
Here is a perfect Kayfun microcoil with a cotton wick installed. Notice how all the kanthal wire is touching together. This will ensure an even heating across all the wire and produce a great vape. Most of you should be using this example of what to aim for!
1.5mm/28ga standard micro-coil
12 wrap 28g Nichrome 1.2-1.3ohm
Twisted Kanthal is a great way to get bigger coils with more contact area with a lower resistance (ohms). I’ve found that these take a few seconds to heat up but can produce some crazy amounts of vapor. Make sure you have a hand drill handy to twist the kanthal wire.
The kayfun vertical coil is an alternative to your standard microcoil horizontally. This method has been claimed to have slightly better wicking properties but has also been reported to produce slightly less vapor.
This build is what’s known as the Kayfun double barrel build. It has two microcoils in parallel. Very difficult to build as there is very little room in the chamber and if anything is touching the base or wall, will short. This is also going to be a very HOT vape.
Dual coil build on a kayfun is difficult to build correctly. Also, with such a small chamber, this is going to be a very HOT vape so be warned. You also risk melting the insulator when these coils heat up.
