Coils play a vital role in enhancing your vaping experience. Once ramped up, the coils heat your e-liquid to produce vapor and flavor. Therefore, if you want to get the most out of your e-juice, your coils must be in proper shape. In a good amount of cases, you should change the coils every week or two. However, this is entirely up to you and how you take care of your coils.
You can lengthen the life of your them through the following 3 methods:
Priming your coils is a clear-cut method of increasing the lifespan of them. Imagine that when you get that burnt hit from your old coils, your instinct is to change them and continue with your vaping session. The lack of patience is what will ruin your coils. If they are used before they are ready or expanded rapidly, they will give in too quickly. To avoid this, once you have screwed your new coils and put your wick in, ensure that you saturate the wicking material with your e-juice. Give the wicking material time to saturate and prime the coil before you can fill up your tank and begin vaping. Then, once you begin vaping, ensure that you take a few short hits, for at least the first few minutes. This will help the coil expand gradually and be ready for use. From there, you can vape as normal.
Go Slow on the VG
If you are into cloud chasing, a high VG ratio is a must-have. The high Vegetable Glycerine content is great on cloud chasing, but will not spare your coils. Vegetable Glycerine tends to be thicker than its counterpart, Propylene Glycol. As such, the coils will need to heat more to effectively vaporize the VG. Heating up your coils too much will cause them to thin out too quickly and give a burnt taste. Therefore, if the goal is to reduce the number of times you replace your coils, you have to choose an e-liquid that has lower VG concentration.
Don’t Take Dry Hits
Dry hits will blow your coils out before their due time. Avoid waiting until your tank is completely dry until you can refill with a new flavor. If you want to try a new flavor, simple pour out the old flavor, clean and dry the tank and coils, then add the new flavor. Also, don’t wait for your wick to dry out before changing it.
As you can see, lengthening the life of your coils requires that you take care of them. From the time you screw them to your atomizer through to the time you get rid of them. This will save you money in the replacement of coils. Also, you will enjoy an overall, flavorful vaping experience.
