How to tell when your coil needs changing

Coils have a limited lifetime and when a coil is done the vaping community regard it as being “burnt”. There are some tips to know when your coil is burnt: 

  1. You may find that the taste of your vape is very light or perhaps non-existent when compared to previous vaping experiences.
  2. Your vape may not produce as much cloud/vapour, but this is also a symptom of a low battery, therefore it is possible that it is not your coil (but it is still a sign of a burnt coil).
  3. When you vape, you will get a burnt taste.
  4. Your device may begin to leak as a result of your coil getting oversaturated, which means it is now flooded and unable to maintain the necessary barrier to prevent liquid leakage.
  5. In sub-ohm vapes, if you remove the coil and see that the cotton within is pitch black, replace it immediately; fresh coils have pure white cotton.

Ways to maximise your vaping experience (regular vaping)

  1. Replace the coil as needed.
  2. Keep your tank full at all times, preferably above the refill line.
  3. Check that you're storing your device correctly, with nothing on top applying pressure to it; excessive pressure can damage your device and cause leaks.

Ways to maximise your vaping experience (sub-ohm)

  1. As needed, replace your coils.
  2. When vaping, make sure all air flow holes are entirely open for optimum cloud production.
  3. For the best flavour and thickest clouds, use a high or even maximum VG juice.
  4. Always make sure the wick (cotton) in your coil is totally wet.
  5. Always lower the power for the first 10-20 draws when utilising a new coil.

Battery life and charging 

  1. To ensure a long battery life, let your device's battery completely drain before charging it. Batteries can be "trained" to perform optimally using this method.
  2. Do not charge your device for more than 4 hours; additionally, overnight charging is widely discouraged in the vaping industry.
  3. It is advised that you charge the batteries of your gadgets using a laptop/PC, but if all of your laptop/USB PC's ports are in use, a portable charger will work. You should not charge your device with a wall plug since these plugs can send excessive power through your battery, causing it to briefly shut down.
  4. Before removing your tank, make sure the connection points are clean and dry. A clogged connection point will prevent a proper connection between your tank and device, resulting in the device not firing when activated.
  5. It is highly recommended that you switch off your device when charging it. This will protect your battery and circuitry during the charging procedure.
