5′ Kanthal Wire 22 Gauge A-1
Kanthal Wire 22 Gauge has a very low resistance rating and is suitable for very sub-ohm builds. This wire is hard to work with because of the thickness, but it is rewarding when your build produces huge vapor plumes!
Note: spool may vary.
Comes with five feet of Kanthal wire 22 gauge per order. Made proudly in the USA. A-1 wire is great for rebuilding RDA and RBA units. This wire has a higher maximum operating temperature, 1500°C, than other wire, such as Kanthal D, which maxes out at 1300°C. It also has higher tensile strength. A-1 has high resistivity, resists wet corrosion more effectively, and has higher hot and creep strength. A-1 is the best suited wire for rebuildable atomizers.
Please note: this is very thick wire and could be tough to use in certain RDA or RBA applications. We are not liable for damage to an atomizer by using this wire, please be cautious. This wire is for experienced builders only.
