Kanger SSOCC - Stainless Steel Organic Cotton Coil
The Kangertech SSOCC replacement coils for the Subtank, Toptank, and others, are the new and improved version of the original OCC coils that were released with the Subtank. The most obvious difference between the two is the fact that the original OCC coils had a square shape to them, while these newer SSOCC coils are cylindrical. While it may seem like a merely superficial difference, the cylindrical coils allow your tank to hold more vape juice, as they take up a lot less space in the tank than the older square-shaped coils did. The cylindrical coils are due to Kanger shifting entirely to vertical coils, rather than utilizing the horizontal coils of the original OCC line.
Kangertech has also created a much wider variety of coils this time around, ensuring that there is a coil for every style of vaper. While a lot has changed, some things have remained the same. For one, the wicking material is still the same high quality Japanese organic cotton that gave the original OCC coils their fantastic flavor. Also, the resistances have stayed in the same ballpark as the old OCC coils but with a little more variety this time around.
While these coils will work fine with 70/30 vape juice, you’ll get slightly better performance and flavor if you run 50/50 vape juice with them. If you’ve got a Subtank or Toptank and haven’t tried these coils out, do yourself a favor and pick up some of these Kangertech SSOCC replacement coils!
Available Kangertech SSOCC Coil Options:
- Kanger SSOCC 0.15 ohm Nickel coil: These coils are made with Ni200 wire and are intended ONLY for temperature control mode. They have a wattage range of 20 - 45 watts, so set your device in that range and try out temperatures between 395 – 480 degrees Fahrenheit until you find the right temperature that suits your vaping style.
- Kanger SSOCC 0.2 ohm coil: This coil has the lowest resistance of the standard kanthal coils but doesn’t require as much power as you might think. The recommended wattage rating is 25 – 45 watts, giving it a lower maximum than the 0.5 ohm coil has. This coil is going to give you a good amount of vapor and a nice and cool vaping experience. If you want something well balanced, this is going to be your pick. Fruity juices taste great with this one.
- Kanger SSOCC 0.5 ohm Stainless Steel coil: This one is the stainless steel take on the standard 0.5 SSOCC coil and has a wattage range of 15 – 60 watts. While it’s going to be a pretty similar experience to the kanthal 0.5 ohm coil, stainless steel tends to run a bit warmer than kanthal does. This is one of the more balanced coils in the lineup, being not as hot as the Clapton coils can get, but a bit warmer than the kanthal coils. An added benefit of the stainless steel wires is that you can run these coils in temperature control mode if you prefer!
- Kanger SSOCC 0.5 ohm coil: These coils are the standard kanthal 0.5 coils that are known and loved by pretty much anyone who uses a compatible tank. This is a very flavorful coil that is also capable of putting out a good amount of vapor, though not quite as much vapor as the Clapton coils. Any vape juice will taste fantastic with this coil since it doesn’t get too hot. This is the most popular coil option for all of the SSOCC coils.
- Kanger SSOCC 1.2 ohm coil: This coil is, by far, the most low-powered of the lineup, with a recommended wattage range of 7 – 15 watts. It’s also the only coil that isn’t a sub-ohm coil. If you prefer a restricted mouth-to-lung vape, like a cigarette inhale, this will be the one for you. It produces a small amount of vapor, so you won’t be overwhelmed and end up coughing. It’s also the one to go for if you’re running an older device that doesn’t support sub-ohm resistances.
How to change and prime your coils:
- First, unscrew the base of the tank from the top of the tank. If your tank has vape juice in it, be sure to flip it upside down before removing the base.
- Unscrew the old coil from the base of the tank and throw it away.
- Apply vape juice to the cotton wicking material inside of the new coil. Do this slowly to allow the cotton time to absorb the juice.
- Continue to do this until the cotton wicking holes on the side of the coil look saturated with juice.
- Grab a tissue, wrap it around the coil, and give it a few hard shakes to get rid of any excess juice in the coil.
- Screw the new coil into the base of the tank, then screw the base into the top portion of the tank.
- Now you’re ready to fill and vape!
