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.
General description for most common coils of a small diameter.
General description for most common coils larger than a Micro coil.
General description for most common coils smaller than a Micro coil.
General description for most coils smaller than a nano coil build.
Coil(s) on or around the center.
Coil wraps around almost on top of itself.
There is space between the wraps of the coil.
A ribbon wire coil twisted around two twisted wire coils.
Wires coiled around each other in a spiral.
Consists of coils twisted around each other
Keep coil(s) parallel to the center.
Single strand no contact coil.
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.
Coil wrapped around itself completely though not extremely tightly.
Coils twisted with coils which twist with more coils.
Coiled in a way that it looks like a slinky very tightly wound.
Very similar to Clapton coil build.
Coiled with an appearance similar to a drill bit
Has a similar appearance to a row of tires.
A wire coil and another coil made to look like a row of staples twisted together.
Multiple coils used to leave a diamond shape in the center of the coils.
The coil is vertical rather than horizontal like many coils are.
Looks like tires and is made up of multiple coils making it much thicker.
Similar to a common coil but with a larger circle in its center.
multiple twisted coils cause the coil to make a wave shape.
Designed to look like a row of staples
Coil designed to look like a zipper.
Looks similar to a DNA shape.
Coiled to make an infinity sign.
Made to look like a crown around the center.
Coil designed to look like a chain.
Coil designed to look like tank treads.
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.
