Micro Coil

Pronunciation:/ˈmʌɪkrəʊ/kɔɪl/


A micro coil is basically an ordinary coil that’s has been wound in such a way that the coil material of each individual wrap is touching the wrap some on either side of it leaving as little gap between them as possible. See image above for reference.

The original definition of a micro coil called for the diameter to be between about 1.4mm and about 1.65mm, but gradually this has grown to include more common diameters and many people use the term to mean any coil above a nano coil with wraps tightly wound together.

Not to be confused with their smaller siblings, nano coils which have smaller diameters, or their even smaller siblings, supernano coils which have such a small diameter that wicks won’t fit through them!

Currently located in Sydney, Australia, I have been vaping since 2009 and became active in the e-cigarette industry in late 2015. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of visiting over 700 shops in 6 countries.
