Just treat claptons the same as you would a regular round wire coil of the same resistance. A 0.6ohm coil i would start at 25W if it's a little lacklustre for you bump it up 0.5W at a time until you hit the vape you like.
I have a box of pre-made clapton coils I bought from a B&M a while ago.
0.60 Clapton - 24g and 32g - A1
Any ideas on the power I need to put through these, please?
I tried them when I first got them and the heat up time seemed really slow.
Would like to try one again in an OBS Nano.
The ramp up (heat up) time for any multi-wire coil is slow compared to single wire coils. Also, the cool down time is extended, resulting in 'after toke' vapour production. I find this leads to more frequent wick changes.
Get Off My Cloud - The thing with these coils is I found them REALLY slow to heat up
Thicker wire maybe - wasn't sure....
I just wondered if I needed to stick super heat through them?
Yes it will be slower to ramp up than a regular single wire coil. The way claptons work is the power goes through the central core wire, that core wire heats up and the heat from the core in turn heats up the outer wrap, the outer wrap doesn't get hot from the power being delivered. That delay while waiting for the central core to heat up the outer wrap is why you have a slower ramp up time. You could punch more power through the core to make it hotter and heat up the outer wrap slightly quicker but once that outer wrap has heated up it's also going to get hotter and put you in possible burnt hit territory. Using a mod with a preheat or power curve function would be better so you can punch a higher amount of power initially and it automatically drop down to a lower amount of power after a second or so would be better.
