I was able to find the density and heat capacity for SS-904L in this datasheet and some resistance-at-temperature values that I could use to calculate TFR in this datasheet. This has now been added to the materials of the Wire Wizard and Coil calculators. As I haven’t tried this coil… Read more »
When combining different materials in parallel, the Wire Wizard sometimes failed to fetch the temperature data for the materials of the individual strands correctly, resulting in an inaccurate TCR/TFR output.
Regarding the Coil Wrapping calculator: How is Leg Length measured? it says “total per coil,” does this mean the sum of both legs on either end of a coil? where does the ‘leg’ start?
What should I do if I am using mesh coils since there is no mesh option?
I’ve had numerous requests to add N90 (Nichrome 90) to the materials in Steam Engine. Quite a few vapers use it for their coils, and most of them seem happy with the performance.
You may or may not have noticed that the Steam Engine calculators are now loading a little bit faster than before.
Now you can add your own custom wire materials, batteries or mods to Steam Engine.
Many box mods come with no visible vent holes. Some vapers, including reviewers, seem to be concerned about that. In most cases, that concern is unwarranted.
What exactly does TC precision entail? Is a higher value more desirable, or lower? The TC precision number in the Wire Wizard is an attempt to describe how easily a mod can sense the temperature of a coil. A higher number means that you should have more precise temperature control.
I was originally planning to drop themes in the new version, because I figured no one was using them anyway. Then one user reminded me that there is an accessibility aspect to being able to change how the site looks. Good point. To change to one of the alternative themes,… Read more »
