Q: Are these the 0.5 ohm coil the same as the one that ships with the Subox mini starter set?
A: No, these are the original Horizontal coil style OCC coils, the New Vertical coil OCC coils that ship with the SUBOX Mini can be found here:
Or just search item # HEC467 in the search bar at the top of the page.
Q: what's the difference between the 0.5 ohm SSOCC and the 0.5 Clapton coils? besides the low end power
A: The regular 0.5ohm is just a round wire coil. The clapton's coil is a round wire that is wrapped with a thinner wire, like a guitar string. This give you more heated surface area and allows some of the juice to actually be stored within the wraps of the wire. With Clapton coils you tend to get a higher volume of vapor.
Q: My Subox mini came with horizontal coils, not the new vertical coils so I assume these will work in the Subox mini too? They look like the other replacements I have bought. Is this price for a single coil or for a box of 5?
A: To my knowledge the SUBOX mini has always only come with the vertical coil heads, at least all of ours have. Maybe the very first batch still used the horizontal coils. But, either one will work. The price is for one coil as is stated in the product description. There are qty. discounts at 5 and 10pcs however.
Q: Are the Kanger SSOCC horizontal coils? From what I can see in the picture they look like they might be vertical. Or maybe it's just a different design than the original horizontal coils - but looks like there's some wire showing near the top going around. Thanks!
A: They are, indeed, vertical.
Q: There 3 coils listed with just ohms and watt ratings. What is the actual wire in the coil?
0.5 ohm SSOCC (15-70W)
1.2 ohm SSOCC (10-26W)
1.5 ohm SSOCC (10-26W)
It would help to list the wire material.
Q: Can the o.5 nicr coil be used of wattage mode or just temp ?
A: Yes it can be used in wattage mode as well.
Q: Is the 0.5 nicr ssoc coil okay to use on the subtank nano ? And can it be used in wattage ? If so what is the wattage range?
A: Yes it is OK to use with the Subtank Nano and on the KBOX Nano. It is generally used in wattage modes, but there are some devices out there that have a temp mode for NiCr coils, but just like stainless coils, they can be used in either mode(Wattage mode is the easier setup). The suggested wattage range is 15-60W, but somewhere around 30-40W is normal.
Q: Will this fit the aero tank?
A: No, these are for the Kanger Subtanks. The Aro tanks use part number HEC109.
Q: Sorry but I am having to disagree on the 0.5 ohm SSOCC (15-70W) 1.2 ohm SSOCC (10-26W) 1.5 ohm SSOCC (10-26W).
I just found the coils on the Kanger web page and they do not have SS coil that have 1.2 ohm SSOCC (10-26W) 1.5 ohm SSOCC (10-26W)
They only have 0.5ohm SUS316L (product name) with Pink o-ringslisted for SS.
These coils look to be Nichrome the ohms match for this material.
I have the link if you would want it. It seem like it is not allowed in this question request.
So do you know if you will be carrying the Kanger SSOCC SUS316L?
I would rather resolve this before I order rather then after I order them and receive the wrong item.
A: That's alright, She answered the question before checking to be sure. You are correct that the wire used to make the coil is not stainless steel. The "SS" refers to the casing of the coil head. Admittedly this adds to the confusion. The newest SSOCC coils from Kanger have a "NC"(Ni-Chrome) laser etched onto the opposite side of the laser etching of the specs. They did not do this at first. The earlier SSOCC coil heads had no indication of the type of metal used for the coil wire.
Regarding the SSOCC 0.5ohm SUS316L coils with the pink ring. One of these coils comes with the TOPBOX Mini. While I have tried several times to order these coils, every time I just end up with more of the 0.5ohm Ni-Chrome coils instead. I have tried searching these coils and cannot even find them listed on Kanger's website, but I do see that they are being sold elsewhere. So we will try again to get some. Just as an FYI, the 75W KBOX Mini, the same as in the TOPTANK Mini Kit, has a Ni-Chrome TC mode, as does the KBOX200. In case you happen to have one of those devices.
Q: What is the difference between having the metal coil to the ceramic coils?
A: The ceramic coils use ceramic as a wicking material rather than cotton and is suppose to be more flavorful .
