What Types of Coils Are There?

What types of coils are there? blog banner picture on

Coils are the essential part of your vaping experience as they are the component in your vape that creates the vapors we inhale. While there are a staggering measure of vape coils accessible for various vapes, they are completely implicit generally the same way. They are composed of an external packaging, produced using metal. Inside this packaging is a wire coil and afterward there is wicking material; this is normally cotton and is either pushed through the loop or folded over it.

As you press the button on your vape battery, it conveys capacity to the loop. As this power is conveyed through the loop, it warms up. Simultaneously you are drawing on your vape, which, by means of a fine activity, is maneuvering e-fluid into the wicking material. The coil is warming up and you are drawing e-juice onto it through the wicking, this e-fluid stirs things up around town (which is hot) and transforms into a fume, which you then breathe in.

What is vaping coil made from?


This is the most common wire type, but is actually a trade name. This is an alloy of three different metals and works really well as a vape coil. Unless specified on a coils specs, your vape coil will be made of Kanthal or Nichrome.


This is very similar to Kanthal, but is composed of two metals rather than three. It is also a thinner wire and heats up quicker, so it can be used for sub-ohm coils more easily.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is used as a vape coil wire. It can be used in straight wattage mode, or with temperature control vaping. This wire is widely available, has a quick ramp up time and holds its shape well.


Titanium wire is thin, easy to work with and can only be used with an e-cig that has a temperature control function. It will not work or perform in straight wattage modes. So if you are looking at coils and see one with Ti or any abbreviation of this and you don’t want to use temperature control vaping, avoid these coils.


This is another temp control only wire, it doesn’t work with wattage modes. It is made of just one compound, nickel. It is a thin wire that is very pliable, so if you are building your own coils it can be difficult to get uniform coils that hold their shape.

Different types of coils 

Vertical coil

These are the most popular types of coils. It will be a singular wrap of wire, in a coil shape running from the bottom of the metal casing to the top. The wicking material will be wrapped around it so the air moves through the center of the coil wire.

Dual coil

This is the same as a vertical coil, except there are two wraps of coil wire, usually side by side. When we start to move past just one wire coil, it is all about surface area. If you have double the number of coils, you have double the elements heating your e-liquid and producing more vapor.

Triple coil

Again, the same as a vertical coil, but there are three of them. Even more surface area, these will be sub-ohm coils and will produce large amounts of vapor.

Multiple coils

In terms of this guide, this means more than three. Yes, there are vape coils with multiple wire coils, some eight and upwards. They have a massive surface area, will be very sub-ohm, specifically for DL vaping and will use high powers and produce huge clouds of vapor.

Twisted coils

All of the coils we have spoken about so far are a singular strand of wire wrapped into a coil. Twisted coils have multiple strands of wire, wrapped around each other, or braided around each other, then made into a coil. Again, this is all about surface area, expect great flavor from a twisted coil.

Mesh coils

With mesh coils we move away from strands of wire. These vape coils are wire, but not in a coil, they literally look like a piece of mesh with small holes. They have massive surface area, can be higher resistance or sub-ohm, and are great for maximum flavor.

Net coils

A variation on mesh coils, these are very similar but with bigger holes so it looks like a fishing net. Again, massive surface area and great flavor and vapor.
