If you want an enjoyable vaping experience, you only need two things — well, maybe three. The right vape juice, in the right nicotine strength, and properly working vape coils. You might not know that how you vape and how well you vape dramatically increases or decreases the life of your coil. Coils typically last anywhere from one to three weeks depending on how often the user vapes and if they were properly broken in.
The staff at Ecigs International wants our customers to know the best practices when it comes to replacing their coils and also how to extend the life of your vape coil once it’s in place. Follow our e-juice company’s advice, and you are well on your way to a more fresh and pleasant vaping experience.
Lesson #1 – Priming Your Vape Coils
You don’t have to be an advanced vaper to know when it’s time to change your coil. A dead coil will essentially burn out, and the user will experience a burnt taste. The wrong way to replace your coil is to unscrew the old one, throw a new one in its place, and immediately start to vape again. The proper way to prime your vape coil is to first saturate the wicker material inside the coil. To do this, you simply drip a little e-juice into the hole of the coil where the wicker resides. If you skip this step, you might burn out the coil right away. If you are unsure how to saturate the coil, ask someone at your local vape shop for help.
Next, take a couple of dry, practice hits. This will allow vape juice to re-enter into the cotton of the wick inside the coil. After those steps are completed, it’s time to start breaking in your new coil! During this expansion phase, where the coil’s wire expands, take it slow and ease back into vaping with shorter hits and lower wattage.
Lesson #2 – Extending Your Coil’s Life
So, we put in a lot of work priming our vape coil; how do we make it last?
- When your vape tank runs out of vape juice, fill it immediately. Do not keep vaping when there is nothing left, because this burns out the wicker material in the coil, causing the coil to need replacement sooner.
- You can also reduce the power setting on your device which will reduce the amount of juice you are vaporizing per hit. The coil’s wick struggles to keep up if you are vaping at a faster rate than it can manage.
- Check up on your coil and clean it regularly. If you fail to clean your coil, the taste and flavor will be impacted — and not in a good way.
