Alien coils are one of the most complex, but beautiful coils that are, forgive the pun, out of this world.
Please view the video reviews below and read our customer reviews at the bottom of the page.
Alien coils are traditionally 3 ‘cores’ of 27g (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!
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!
Nichrome 80 (N80),Stainless Steel (SS316L)andKanthal A-1 (KA-1)core and wrap wire available! Please state in the custom field above if you'd like a different metal type. Values below are for N80 only.
Sold in a set which contains 2 coils (pair)
Ultrasonically cleaned in our state of the art stainless steel 6L ultrasonic cleaner on a 30 minute cycle with deionised (DI) water and then only handled using ceramic tweezers ensuring no one touches your coil until it is in your hands
Pre-fire service available included in the price. Don't have a device that fires below 0.1 Ω? Add a comment in the checkout to pre-fire for you! Ultrasonically cleaned before and after to ensure crisp, clean coils
First time install not yet fired. These values change after one or two pulses
27g 5 wrap / 2.5mm ID:
Single coil: 0.19-0.20 Ω
Dual coil: 0.09-0.1 Ω
27g 5 wrap / 3mm ID:
Single coil: 0.22-0.23 Ω
Dual coil: 0.10-0.11 Ω
Once pulsed, hot spots worked out with even glow from center outward
27g 5 wrap / 2.5mm ID:
Single coil: 0.21-0.22 Ω
Dual coil: 0.1-0.11 Ω
27g 5 wrap / 3mm ID:
Single coil: 0.24-0.25 Ω
Dual coil: 0.11-0.12 Ω
Ohm estimates are based on a 10mm lead (leg) length. Install further from the deck posts for a slightly higher ohm value
Ensure your device can fire below 0.1 Ω, otherwise install one coil at a time to pulse (fire) the coil
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.
