Nickel Chrome 80/20 (Ni80) electrical wire, is a very popular choice in the vaping industry due to its high heat and electrical resistance. This also means it is an ideal wire choice for cloud chasers as the thinner gauges used to wrap builds, such as Claptons, have a very high resistance.
Ni80 is also widely used for its electrical heating elements so is suitable for applications that require resistance to oxidation.
Ni80 is also very widely used for hot cutting applications.
