Alien coils are one of the most complex, but beautiful coils that are, forgive the pun, out of this world.
This is a series based build for 8.4v devices of the beloved alien clapton coil. Extremely large in size with outstanding flavour and vapor production.
Alien coils are traditionally 3 ‘cores’ of 28g (Twisted Messes wire in our case), first claptoned with a single ‘core’ wire with 36g (Twisted Messes), then very carefully, removing the ‘core’ wire so you are left with a de-cored clapton which is then stretched out precisely and accurately and claptoned back onto the 3 ‘core’ wires either clockwise or anti-clockwise depending on how you initially claptoned the 36g to create a beautiful curved, wave design that not only looks fantastic, but holds tons of juice on its own making dry hits a whole lot more rarer and due to it’s unique design, is the most flavourful of most other coils out there. Not only will your juice taste better than ever before, but you will have one of the best looking coils in the world!
These coils are wrapped with a 4mm inner diameter. Please ensure you are using at least a 30mm deck size to fit these coils.

You will receive a set of two coils inside glass vials with a free sample of the fantastic Cotton Junkie by Wick Addiction. Both coils and vials are ultrasonically cleaned multiple times and handled using ceramic tweezers ensuring no one touches your coils until you have them in your own hands!
Note: Resistance can vary depending on leg length between the coil and terminals.
These coils may initially fire below 0.1Ω due to the resistance of the wire so please ensure either your regulated device fires below 0.1Ω or you pre-fire on a mechanical device to raise the ohms and finish working out hot spots on a regulated device. We recommend firing if possible on a DNA device, or a device that can fire as low as 0.05Ω.
Please ensure you are using high amperage cells such as authentic Sony VTC4, 5 or 6's.
Please note, installing these types of coils are different from regular wire. Pulse very slowly on a low wattage at first as they will have many hot spots until all of the wire settles down due to how intricate the coils are. Strum and grip the coils with ceramic tweezers until the hot spots are all gone and the coils are heating up from the centre outward.
For coil maintenance, once the coil has started to ‘gunk’ up due to the suclarose in your e-juice (While our coils will last longer than others, gunk build up is unavoidable due to some juice brands opting for heavy amounts of suclarose in their juice lines), we recommend putting your atty on a regulated device (Preferably one you do not use often), setting the wattage to around 50-60w and ‘pulsing’ them with no cotton until they heat up a dark orange, stopping the pulsing and quickly ‘dip’ the coils under a warm tap while the coils are still hot ensuring the tap is a very weak stream of water as to not accidentally leak water on your regulated device. ‘Dip’ the coils around 3 times and you should see them look almost as new as you got them! Leave to dry, re-wick and enjoy full flavour again!
Advanced users only! Interstellar Vaping is not responsible for any harm or damage caused by using any of our products and due care and attention is required at all times. If you do not understand Ohms Law, battery safety and the safe max amperage of your cells please do not use these coils. If you wish to learn more about this before using, please consult battery ‘Mooch’s data sheets on the safe amperage of your cells using his battery ratings table of your corresponding cells and purchase the corresponding ohm coils. Steam Engine is also a fantastic collection of calculators to determine the amps draw of these coils. Please use two cell regulated devices with these coils to share the amperage draw.
