Meet the Notch Coil
Earlier this week, Wismec senior designer Jay-Bo unveiled the Notch Coil. This innovative product will appear in both Joyetech and Wismec products. At the beginning of March, I got to see the Notch Coil in person; the concept floored me, while its potential was absolutely tantalizing. Here’s a quick look at the Notch Coil by Wimec and Joyetech.
Best of Both Worlds
To fully appreciate this section of the Notch Coil preview, you’ll need to listen to this Van Halen song. Is it playing yet? How about now? Okay, we’re good.
When Jay-Bo showed me the Notch Coil in his office, a lightbulb went off in my head. It was one of those “Holy crap! Why didn’t anyone do this before?!?” moments. It seems like such a simple and obvious idea — combine the surface area of a Clapton coil with the fast ramp-up time of a traditional coil.
As you can tell by the photos, the Notch Coil has abundant surface area — much more than a typical spaced coil, which seems to work best in rebuildable sub-ohm tanks. The main “body” of the coil is stainless steel, which heats up quickly and provides super-clean flavor (and in my opinion, is safer than other vaping wire materials). The leads are non-resistance nickel wire. I was told that the Notch Coil will work well with temperature control mods, for you guys and dolls that like to…err…control temperature.
As for the specs, the Notch Coil has a resistance of 0.23 ohms and an inner diameter of 5.5mm. I’m curious to see how wicking will be, as I mostly use common coil diameters like 2.5 or 3.0mm. I’m guessing that it’ll feel weird at first, but it will be something that will quickly become second nature.
As for how the Notch Coil vapes, I’ll report on that in the near future. On paper, it looks brilliant for flavor. As you know, we don’t vape on paper at Vaping360. We vape on the Internet. Stay tuned for a video interview with Jay-Bo on the Notch Coil and a supremely cool product it will be accompanying.
