Nectar Coil for E-Nail Nectar Collector:
IMPORTANT: wiring is not always compatible between all heat coil and controller units! Many e-nail controllers are wired differently (even though they have the same size plug). If you are unsure, I can help to find out but please check this out and/or contact the maker of your other gear to find out the order before purchasing.

Nectar Coil Functionality
An nectar collector e-nail coil (AKA e-nectar) is one way to keep steady heat on your nectar collector / dab straw / honey straw’s nail. This allows you to give it steady, even heat without any guess-work or glowing red-hot nails involved. While I have to admit, as a pyro I do enjoy using a torch. I also like how it also invokes the sense of blowing glass or other industrial work, you just can’t beat the everyday value that an electrically-controlled nail brings to the table. Also the even-heating from something like this e-nail nectar collector coil is MUCH much easier on the nail! You don’t have to heat it up until it gets glowing red anymore. You can save on wear from thermal shock and oxidation. This might not matter as much to you if you are using the entry-level universal Ti or a cheap quartz dome-less; but anything above that is worth taking care of if you plan on using it a fair amount!
E-nail nectar coils will last last for many years if taken care of. This being said, tt is important that you make sure that the pin configurations will match between your new heat coil and the e-nail controller. An e-nail nectar coil (e-nectar) is a solution made to deliver steady heat to your nectar collector. This allows for consistent, even heating without any temperature guessing, heat guns, or glowing metals involved.
Your enail will malfunction if the order of the pins on the plugs do not match each other! Many e-nail controllers are wired differently (even though they have the same size plug). It may look like the same size plug but some companies wire their e-nails differently to try to get proprietary exclusivity. IT IS SOLELY YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MESSAGE IF YOU DO NOT KNOW YOUR CONTROLLER WIRING CONFIG. ALREADY. Most e-nail sellers are responsive when you ask them. Just ask what the wiring configuration is on the 5-pin XLR plug. When you find it, please make sure it matches the listed configuration above
