Typically, a Clapton coil consists of a small gauge (narrow) wire that is wound around another large gauge (wider) wire in a right-angled configuration.
Ideally, it implies a wound (coiled wire) where one wire is tightly wound around another. But we need to give it a more appealing name to attract customers. You might already know what is a single battery vape mod is. Current from the batteries first heats the wider wire before transferring the heat to the narrower one.
Although Clapton coils take some time (ramp-up time) to heat up, the majority of vapers prefer to attribute them to the extra surface area they offer for vaporization of vape flavor, and this makes them a bit more efficient compared to conventional coils.
Although some vapers would love to create their own, building Clapton coils by your own calls for a lot of patience, dedication, immense commitment as their construction procedure is complicated. The external wire should be wound tightly around the internal wire, which is a very difficult task, especially for beginners.
These coils are manufactured in factories and the majority of vapers prefer purchasing the pre-built coils rather than spending their precious time building their own. But the enthusiastic vapers will attempt to make their own.
Most recently, the popularity of Clapton coils is on the rise particularly among the cloud and flavor chasers, sub-ohmers, and vapers who love-cigarettes.
