I have the Volcano Wallet and the wire inside is not working anymore - it is broken. The battery is still ok. Do you guys know where can I get this heating wire?

Have you contacted Jim Pace ?

How is it broken, exactly, do you know ? Is that wire broken, that you can see?
The wire is Nichrome wire, but a very thin gauge, like maybe .40 or .42 even (guessing). It's commonly used for "sawing" through stryofoam (among other things) but usually the gauge is thicker on the stryofoam cutters than you want here.
Check eBay, you can usually find it there.

Note - it is impossible to solder nichrome wire using normal electronics rosin core solder. You have to either wrap the wire (recommended), or, use an acid core solder and a zinc chloride based flux - a real mess.
Just hanging out with the rest of my fellow dregs.
