Stainless Steel TCR
#1
Does anyone know what flavor (ie 304, 316, 317) of Stainless Steel was chosen for the SS Temp Control function in FW 2.0?

Myself and another user did some rough math calculations in the firmware thread and we believe it is 304

Thanks Kermit
So it's 304. I think that's good. From what I've read most TCR setting are a little higher than actual TCR
for 316/L, just drop temp by 10C although you wont notice it. People adjust to what feels right anyway. Added bonus is VTC mini has live stats. Easy to see what's going on.

Well that's unfortunate. I think that 316 or 317 are more readily available. Anyone have a good source for 304 SS?

I have no idea why vapers buy 316/L.
304 is better for TC, is cheaper and basically the same makeup as 316/L.

304 for TCR calculations is fine for 316. You don't need to buy new wire.

I'm a noob when it comes to SS coils, can you please explain how 304 is better than 316?
Flavor? Stiffness when wrapping? etc..

I have just got 50 Metres of SS 304 for £2.99p. That should last a lifetime. Going to do a CLR wrap tonight and see what its like.

Can someone advise what temperature to fire SS at please?

Thanks

I thought SS was supposed to fire at lower temperatures? I dont know why i think that. Is SS a better vape? What wattage are you also firing at?
