List of Different RDA Coil Configurations
Welcome to our List of Different RDA Coil Configurations. Vaping has spawned many subcultures and types of vaping. This has made the community much more excitable over new types and methods of smoking. Sub ohm vaping in particular has birthed the use of more and different materials to get better taste out of flavourings. One of the popular methods of maximizing flavour and minimizing juice use is RDA (rebuildable dripping atomizers), popularly referred to as “drippers”.
Drippers are typically used for sub ohm vaping as the high heats sub ohm vapers each allows even small drops of e-liquid at a time to produce a lot of vapour and flavour. However sub ohm vapers much enjoy customisability and as such have many varieties of coil they use in drippers. Here you’ll find listed some of the popular coil types.
WARNING: If you intend to build any of these for yourself it is in your best interest to research at least basic circuitry or consult a more experienced friend before starting or even doing any of these builds.
Micro Coil build
General description for most common coils of a small diameter.
Macro Coil build
General description for most common coils larger than a Micro coil.
Nano Coil build
General description for most common coils smaller than a Micro coil.
Super Nano Coil build
General description for most coils smaller than a nano coil build.
Center Coil build
Coil(s) on or around the center.
Tin Man coil Build
Coil wraps around almost on top of itself.
Spaced Coil build
There is space between the wraps of the coil.
Flat bastard Coil build
A ribbon wire coil twisted around two twisted wire coils.
Spiral Wire build
Wires coiled around each other in a spiral.
Twisted Coil build
Consists of coils twisted around each other
Parallel Coil build
Keep coil(s) parallel to the center.
Sleeper coil build
Single strand no contact coil.
Stove top Coil build
rather than being coiled more like a rope it is instead coiled in such a way that it looks like the metal component of an old stovetop.
Hurricane Coil build
Coil wrapped around itself completely though not extremely tightly.
Abyss Coil build
Coils twisted with coils which twist with more coils.
Clapton Coil build
Coiled in a way that it looks like a slinky very tightly wound.
Fuzed Clapton build
Very similar to Clapton coil build.
Agro Coil build
Coiled with an appearance similar to a drill bit
Transformer coil build
Has a similar appearance to a row of tires.
Stapled tiger coil build
A wire coil and another coil made to look like a row of staples twisted together.
Diamond coil build
Multiple coils used to leave a diamond shape in the center of the coils.
Vertical coil build
The coil is vertical rather than horizontal like many coils are.
Juggernaut coil build
Looks like tires and is made up of multiple coils making it much thicker.
Jumbo coil build
Similar to a common coil but with a larger circle in its center.
Tidal wire coil build
multiple twisted coils cause the coil to make a wave shape.
Staple coil build
Designed to look like a row of staples
Zipper coil build
Coil designed to look like a zipper.
Stapled helix coil build
Looks similar to a DNA shape.
Chuck Norris coil build
Coiled to make an infinity sign.
Crown coil build
Made to look like a crown around the center.
Chain coil build
Coil designed to look like a chain.
Caterpillar track coil build
Coil designed to look like tank treads.
Staged heating coil build
Looks like a clapton coil wrapped around a wire coil.
Most of these coil names describe the aesthetic of the coil and very few of them actually change flavour or taste very much. However it is best for you to examine them and decide which ones would be best for you. Apart from build instructions there is very little information on these coils online so you are best asking an expert what each one is good for. It is also a very good idea to examine what materials are good for what coils and talk to a friend about what kinds of coils they enjoy. For all you know the pooling of ideas might lead to the creation of a new coil.
