Things You Need to Know About Vape Coil


What is a Vape Coil?

The vape coil is the core component of the atomizer that heats up your e-juice and turns it into vapor. The coil is wrapped in wicking material which is used to absorb the e-juice. Besides, it draws power from the battery and converts it to heat.


How often should you replace your vape coil?

Vape coils have a limited lifespan. They need replacing regularly. In general, a standard vape coil will last around 1-4 weeks, which depends on how often you vape. Using the vape more frequently means you need to replace the coil more often. It may need to be changed as often as once a week, but if you infrequently vape, the coil also needs to replace once a month. You can prolong the service life of the coil by cleaning it regularly and prime it.


Why are my vape coils burning?

The reasons result from burnt coils are many, among which drying out of the coil is the main cause. What is that mean? It means that there is not enough juice to be absorbed by the coil. In other words, the tank is running on empty. Properly priming before first use is a good first step to ensure your coil doesn't dry out and then making sure you have plenty of juice in the tank.


How to clean vape coils?

Not all vape coils can be cleaned. The coils in Pod systems cannot be cleaned. The coil here I said is the replaceable coil. Please notice that don’t dry burn the coil. That means that you should remove the atomizer when the tank is empty. When clean your coil, you’d better soak it in vodka or vinegar for several hours. Then rinse thoroughly with water and again with distilled water. Of course, you can place it under the running water if you have no solvent. And then you should leave it to dry completely before using it again. Although they can be cleaned to an extent, the best thing to do is just to replace the coil.


When should I Change My Vape Coil?

If your atomizer coil has reached the end of its life, it is time to change it. There are four signs of the dead coil are as follows.

A. Experience a burnt taste. Vaping a dead coil will eventually result in an unpleasant taste. Never try to continue vaping if you’re getting a bad taste. Just change the coil.

B. Poor vapor production. The vapor produced by the coil will gradually lessen with time. By the end of your coil’s lifespan, the vapor output will be much lower than usual. But it is possible the result of a dying battery. Thus, you should make sure first the reason.

C. Weak e-liquid flavor. Sometimes a worn coil can make your flavored e-juice seem just a little bit off. If that happened, you should change the coil.

D. A gurgling sound generation. Vapes shouldn’t gurgle. If your device produces gurgling noises, change the coil is a great solution.


How to Change a Vape Coil?

To change your coil, you need to fully disassemble your vape atomizer. Unscrew the atomizer head from the mod first, and then unscrew the tank, and empty the tank. Then you can unscrew the used coil from the atomizer and replace it with the new one. Finally, you can fill the tank with your preferred e-juice. Don't forget to prime the new coil before installing it to the tank again.
