KangerTech OCC/SSOCC/Ceramic Replacement Coils - 5 Pack



The new Kangertech Stainless Steel Organic Cotton Coils (SSOCC) have replaced the previous range of OCC coils and perform remarkably well, however there is an immense amount of confusion surrounding them. Due to the name, it is natural to assume that the wire material of the coils is in fact made with stainless steel. However, this is certainly not the case, as the SSOCC coils are made with a variety of wire materials. This brief article is meant to clear up the confusion once and for all.

First and foremost, let’s clarify the terminology of the name. The phrase “Stainless Steel” (SS) in the name “SSOCC” refers to the casing of the atomizer coil, not the material of the wire. Whereas the majority of atomizer heads are constructed with aluminum casing, the SSOCC coils are made with stainless steel. This was a major oversight on the part of Kanger for making this so confusing and difficult to understand, as they should have been aware of the potential for misperception due to the recent popularity of atomizer coils made with 316L Stainless Steel wire.

Kangertech currently makes four various types of SSOCC coils, all of which use the stainless steel housing as well as organic cotton wicking. Each type of coil is identifiable due to the different color seals that the respective head uses, as well as the writing on the casing. This was an intelligent move on Kanger’s part, as those who choose to alternate between the different coil types can easily discern between them.

The Nichrome SSOCC Coils are available in 0.15 ohms, 0.5 ohms, 1.2 ohms, and 1.5 ohmsKanger SSOCC Coils - Nichrome resistances. They can be identified by the red seals on the heads, as well as the etching on the coil itself that writes “NC.” The Nichrome SSOCC atomizer coils are to be used in variable wattage mode, and cannot accommodate temperature control (TC) mode.  

The Nickel (Ni-200) SSOCC Coils are only available in 0.15 ohms resistance. They can be identified by Kanger SSOCC ni200 coilsthe blue writing on the box, the “Ni” written of the casing, as well as the blue seals on the heads. The Nickel SSOCC coils cannot be used in wattage mode, but can rather exclusively be used in temperature control mode using a temperature control and sensing device.

Kanger also makes SSOCC Coils that are fitted with Clapton wires. The Clapton Coils are available in 0.5 Kanger SSOCC Coils Claptonohms resistance, and can be clearly identified by the box, which states “Clapton Coils,” as well as the black colored seals on the heads themselves. The Clapton SSOCC Coils are made with Kanthal resistance wire, which is to be used in wattage mode only.

Kanger SSOCC SS316L coilsLastly, Kanger has made SSOCC Coils that do actually use 316L Stainless Steel wires. The SUS316 SSOCC Coils, as they are called, are available in 0.5 ohms resistance. The stainless steel coils, which are etched with the letters “SS” on the casing, can be easily distinguished by its pink seals. The Stainless Steel SSOCC Coils are for use with temperature control devices in TC mode.
