List of Different RDA Coil Configurations

By Nataly Komova

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.
