Ok I am creating this Discussion for SS 316L since in the SS 316L TC Coil topic keeps getting posts voted down. Considering that there are a lot of devices that support Stainless Steel coils in Temperature Control mode, none of the admins have really said anything about talking about other mods. Since this was an issue, I have created this in the proper section for general discussions on E-Cigs. With that said, lets begin.
When doing any type of Stainless Steel Temp Control, you have to take a few things into consideration. First off, what device are you using and how does it handle temp control. I have found that on devices that only control the temperature and not the wattage will have problems with SS coils. For instance, with the X Cube 2, it you set the temperature of the mods and it automatically give the Wattage. Since you can vape SS 316L coils in regular wattage mode, you must make sure that the coils support the wattage your device is giving you in TC mode. Also, you must make sure that the device is set up for the type of Stainless Steel coils you are using. There are many types of SS wire out there. SS 316 has a different Temperature of Coefficient than SS 316L. If your mod says SS 316, check and make sure whether or not it is SS 316 or SS 316L.
There are certain mods that will allow you to adjust the Temperature of Coefficient for the mod. This is a great place to start as some mods may not have the proper ToC for the type of wire you are using. A great place to check is Steam-Engine. They have a section dedicated to getting all the info you need for different types of wire. Just make sure you select the correct wire and the info you need.
Lastly, just play around with it and see what is working for you. As you can use SS 316L wire for TC, it has a very narrow curve of resistance change compared to Ni200 or Ti 1. Because of this it tends to be less accurate than those types of wire, but it can be used. Also because of this narrow curve of resistance, it can be used just like Kanthal safely in regular Wattage mode.
Please feel free to discuss this and any mods and experiences you have had with with SS temp control. Hopefully we can all help to get this down and actually get it to work.
