If you're new to vaping, you might not know a lot about coils. Coils are one of the most important parts of your vape device, and they play a pivotal role in providing you with a great vaping experience.
Coils heat up your e-juice so that it can deliver flavor and nicotine to your lungs. When coils burn out, they can give off some nasty flavors and feelings in your throat. That's why it's important to know the ways of how to avoid burning your coils.
#1 - Prime your coils before use.
This ensures that the wick is fully saturated with e-liquid, and reduces the risk of a dry hit.
Most devices require that you prime your coils before use. This means saturating the cotton on the coil with E-juice, and letting it sit for a few minutes. This allows the coil to absorb enough juice so that it doesn't burn when you first use it.
For open pod systems, it’s as simple as letting juice sit in a pod for about 10 minutes the first time you fill it before vaping.
When it comes to Sub-Ohm devices, first you should saturate the visible cotton on the coil with a couple drops of E-juice. After this, put the coil in the tank, fill it up and take a few dry hits (a dry hit is when you take a hit without clicking the battery's fire button). In this way you’ll be able to siphon e-juice from the tank onto the cotton.
This may seem like a lot of work, but priming your coils correctly will save you from having to replace them as often. It will also give you a much better vaping experience overall!
#2 - Keep your coils clean.
Regularly cleaning your coils will help to prevent them from burning out prematurely. A clean coil will last longer and produce better flavor than a dirty one. Inspect your coils regularly and give them a good cleaning if they start to look gunky.
#3 - Use the correct wattage setting.
Coils are a vital part of any electronic cigarette and getting the correct wattage is essential for a great vaping experience. Too much or too little wattage can result in a less than satisfactory vape. Vaping at too high a wattage can cause your coils to burn out quickly. It is therefore important to consult the manufacturer's instructions on what wattage to use for your particular coil.
When in doubt what wattage to use, always err on the side of caution and start with a lower wattage before working your way up. This will help to prolong the life of your coils and give you the best possible vaping experience.
#4 - Avoid chain vaping.
Chain vaping can be extremely harmful to your coils. It not only burns them out faster, but it also produces a harsher vape that can be difficult on your throat and lungs. If you find yourself chain vaping often, try to take breaks in between puffs, and make sure to clean your coils regularly. Doing so will help prolong their lifespan and keep your vape experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
#5 - Don’t let your tank run dry.
The simplest way to avoid your coil burning out prematurely is to make sure that it always has E-Juice in it. When the coil becomes dry, it will eventually burn out, resulting in dry, flavorless & burnt-tasting hits. To avoid this, just make sure to keep your tank or pod filled and you’ll be good to go!
#6 - Replace your coils regularly.
Over time, coils will naturally degrade and need to be replaced. Regularly replacing your coils will help to keep your vaping experience fresh and prevent premature coil burnout.
