Just a note: The world seems pretty evenly divided between folks who love Kanthal A-1 and folks who love Nichrome (60 and 80). A small number of people claim to be able to taste the high iron content in Kanthal A-1.  Personally, I can't, but... you might. If you are new to RBA's, I recommend getting some of each. (We will have a multi pack of the different types but in the same gauge up soon).
 
If you are new to RBA's and are curious about which gauge wire to get, I recommend 32 gauge.

  1. Good Stuff, Maynard! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Aug 2015

    I bought mine here because Kidney Puncher is one of the few sources for small amounts of odd gauges of Kanthal. Their larger spools are reasonably priced as well.


  2. almost perfect 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Aug 2015

    Great wire but packaging is severly flawrd, wrapping it aroind a peice if flat cardboard causes a large and difficult to remove bump every so often. The problem it probably lessened the higher guage you go. But even with a drill the 24 guage was impossible to straighten


  3. clouds 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th May 2015

    Wrapped 4 strands and made a .8 ohm coil rips like a charm


  4. good stuff 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2015

    Works well as intended


  5. Good wire 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2015

    I'm new to building and this wire worked well for me. Shipping was super fast and I got everything I needed for my second build in one place. Will definitely buy again.


  6. Good wire, bad design. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2015

    Dont get me wrong, this is nice kanthal. But the way its packaged is flawed. The wire comes wrapped around this cardboard square, so every 2 or 3 inches there is gonna be a bell curve in the wire. This is the only reason i took off a star.


  7. Chuuuuuuckin 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Dec 2014

    Reading 0.15 in a dark horse, and chuuuuucking the vapor. About to order a few 100ft.

    Highly recommended!


  8. only wire i buy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Dec 2014

    I love the wire from Kidney Puncher! This is the only place i buy wire from. Great quality and great service!


  9. great wire 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Dec 2014

    This is one of the best wire I used to build coils with. Works great


  10. Exactly what I wanted 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Nov 2014

    This wire does exactly what I wanted it to do. The resistance is exactly on spec (res/length). Great stuff to build with, and lasts through multiple cleans very well.
