When to Change Vape Coil?
At Flawless Vape Shop, we understand maintaining your vaping equipment is part of being a vaper. During your maintenance routine, one of the parts you should pay close attention to is the coil. It determines how tremendous or bad your vaping experience is going to be. If the coil is burnt-out or not functioning correctly, it can cause hard hits which can be uncomfortable.
You should take proper care of the coil and avoid using old e-liquids to save yourself from bad tastes when vaping. It's never a great experience, and it can taint an otherwise great vaping run. So how do you protect yourself from the unpalatable burnt taste on your e-liquid? Simply maintain, check, and replace the coil when necessary. If you don't know how you're in the right place.
How Do You Know It’s Time to Change Your Coil?
Understanding the inner mechanics of the coil is essential. However, you don't need to be an expert. There are some pretty simple tips and tricks you can use to tell if your coil has just completed its life cycle.
1. Gurgling sounds when you’re vaping
Gurgling is not always a sign that the coil is down and out, but it should be reason enough for you to give it a closer look. An e-cig should not be making gurgling sounds when in use. If it is, it may indicate something is wrong, and often, it’s the coil. You can check if this is the problem by replacing the coil and seeing if the gurgling continues. If it does, you might need to have a closer look at other components.
2. Burnt taste in your mouth
Another indication that screams it’s time to have your coil changed is a burnt taste. This is the most reliable test when determining when the coil needs a change. Regardless of the quality of liquid you're using, if the coil goes out, the taste is usually the same — a harsh, burnt taste in your mouth.
This is a big sign that your coil is dying out and needs to be changed pronto before it affects the performance of the entire e-cig.
3. The e-juice tastes different
If your coil has gone rogue, your e-juices may not taste the same. If this is the case, it’s most likely that the coil is not performing normally and needs to be replaced. It is easy to tell if your e-juices don’t taste the same, especially the ones you love.
4. Leaking e-cig
A leaking e-cig can be the result of many things gone wrong. A failing coil is one of them. Others include an overflowing tank or worn out rings. If this is the case, you have to take a look inside to rule out a lousy coil.
5. The coil has reached the end of its life
Like everything else, the coil has a limited lifespan which is determined by how often you vape. If you’re a regular, your coil might only last a week and maybe a few days. For casual vapers, perhaps a month. If it's been some time since the coil was changed and you notice changes in performance, it could be because it has reached the end of the line.
How Often Do I Change My Coil?
To be able to continually enjoy your vaping experience, you need to know when to change the coil.
There is no specific time frame after which a coil should be changed. Some factors affect the longevity of the coil. These include:
- How often you vape.
- If you use liquids with high VG content which wear out the wick faster than balanced PG/VG mixes.
- The level of power you’re using when vaping if you use variable voltage mods.
What Does a Burnt Coil Look Like?
If your e-cig is showing signs of something being wrong, it’s important to take a closer look.
Here are a few tell-tale signs:
- The coil usually looks black.
- It also seems fried.
- It has some excess burnt prime around it.
How Do I Change the Coil?
The procedure for changing the coil depends on the type of mod or e-cig you have. For the top, bottom, or sub-ohm varieties, you need to look at the atomiser head. Start by carefully unscrewing the glass and proceed to empty any liquid left in the tank.
Then unscrew the coil and use a paper towel if it is coated in liquid. Take out the old coil and replace it with the new one, and finally screw it in place.
Please note that it takes a while for the liquid to soak into the wick so, give it a few minutes before enjoying your e-cig again. If you fire up the e-cig before the wick is soaked, it could burn and just like that, you will need to buy another new coil.
How to Extend the Life of Your Coil
Coils are not built to last forever. However, with proper care and maintenance routine, you can get it to serve you for a more extended period.
The first and most important thing is to regularly clean the coil to remove dust, oil, and prime. It’s also important to watch out when refilling your e-cig. You should be careful not to flood the coil. At the same time, once you replace the coil, you should give it a few minutes to soak before firing.
Coils play an essential role in your vaping experience. To keep your experience pleasant and also to save the e-cig from severe damage, you should ensure you regularly check and clean the coil, especially when you notice a decline in performance and experience.
