Why use a vertical coil?
« on: September 25, 2014, 01:10:33 AM »
Ive seen this a few times now, but i havent tried it myself yet. Why are people making vertical coils? Is there any difference made opposed to normal horizontal coils?

They're handy if you're trying to fit a lot of coils into a small space, especially if the coils are long. 
Hey Todd, how's it goin'?

The vertical coil atomizers for the Aspire line (Nautilus and some others, I believe) are actually "inside out" - the wicking material is packed around the outside of the coil and the vapor is produced inside. The airhole feeds the bottom of the vertical coil and the vapor is drawn from the top. I find they work pretty well for me with a fairly free draw and quite a bit higher Wattage than my ViVi Nova liked. (10 Watts vs 5.6 for the VVNs.)

Well, with a centered vertical coil you don't have to worry about lining up the air holes.

In theory, there would be less distance for the juice to wick to get to the coil.

AFAIK, the AGA T3 is the only atomizer that works that way.  It also has very small air-space in the top-cap due to solid metal filler: you can only orient the top-cap one way: by setting the "slot" down over the coil and post.  Probably why it performs so well.  (disclaimer: I'm a fan, and have two of 'em.  Both in use. A bear to build, among other issues, but worth it.) (and now discontinued, I might add.)

There are a lot of RDAs that have either the positive or negative screw(s) on the deck and the others on posts. They should work fine with vertical coils.

Me, I just pay the buck or two and screw in a new factory coil. They don't cost enough for me to bother with all the fiddling necessary when winding my own. I can wind coils good enough for my needs, if it ever becomes necessary.
