If you are an experienced vaper then you understand the significance of a good vape coil. People call it different things, including coils, atomizers, and atomizer heads. Technically they are atomizer heads but we will call it coils just for the sake of consistency throughout this article but it all means the same thing. The coil is essentially at the center of your vaping experience converting the juice within your tank into the vapor that you inhale. The coil can affect many aspects of your vaping experience including the size and thickness of the clouds produced as well as the flavour and how much juice is used while you're vaping. This is why picking replacement coils can be a tough choice. There are many coil options to choose from and we want to help you make the best choice in terms of determining which coil would be best for you.
Before we get into the types of coils we need to understand how a coil produces vapor. An atomizer has 3 main parts, the atomizer body, the coil, and the wicking material. The atomizer head converts energy from your e-cigarette battery to heat the coil inside the atomizer. The wicking material that draws in the e-juice, usually natural cotton, is surrounding the coil, and when the coil becomes heated it will vaporize the e-liquid that is soaked into the wicking material, which is then inhaled by you.
Now that we understand how a coil produces vapor we can get into the two categories of coils.
Your coils will eventually burn-out, it's not something you can really avoid but before figuring out how to replace your coil, we wanted to mention how to maintain the longevity of your vape coil. Avoid chain vaping your device, this is a common thing that results in the deterioration of your coil. Without allowing your wick enough time to soak up some e-liquid before your next draw it can burn or dry out your wick and that's when you really have to replace your coil. We suggest allowing at least 30 seconds in between draws of your vape to ensure that the coil and wick have enough time to recover. This will all depend on how often you vape as well, this means your coil might need to be replaced pretty often. Even if you vape occasionally, we would advise replacing your coil at least once per month just to avoid vaping from a damaged coil. This leads us to how to identify when you should change your coil.
Some signs are more obvious than others but we wanted to go over when you should consider a replacement coil.
We can finally get into how to actually properly replace your own coil. We know that it might feel daunting in the beginning but after you do it once it should be relatively the same for most devices. Every device is slightly different so read your device's instruction manual just to be safe!
Depending on what is important to you your choice for a coil might differ from another person. Consider what's important to you:
