Vape coils are used to heat your vape juice and create vapor. Atomizers are relatively simple in construction - typically consisting of just a coil that is wrapped in wicking material (which absorbs e-liquid). When a device is activated for use, vape coils draw power from the battery to produce heat and vaporise e-liquid or nicotine salts.
Vape coils are measured in ohms. Most personal vaporiser brands have their own selection of vaping coils with different resistance level options. By choosing different vape coils with specific resistance levels, you can further customise your vaping experience. Vaping coils with lower resistance will result in more vapor production when the device is activated, while vape coils with higher resistance will give off a cooler vape. We recommend testing a few different resistance levels to find out which vape coils provide you with the most ideal encounter.
Types of vape coils
Some people choose to build their own vapor coils, but if you prefer not to, vaping.com provides a wide selection of high-quality pre-made coils. For those who want to create their own coil builds, rebuildable atomisers give vapers the flexibility to build their coils however they choose. Rebuildable options include RDAs (rebuildable drip atomizers) and RTAs (rebuildable tank atomizers). If building your own vape coils is something you’re interested in, we also offer a wide selection of vape coil wire and wick.
How often do I need to replace my vape coils?
Your vaporiser coil will need to be replaced once it has become too soiled to perform properly. The frequency of how often you will need to change your vape coil will depend on many factors such as how often you vape, what temperature you prefer to vape at, what type of vape juice you are using, and more. Some vape users can go several weeks without vape replacement coils, while some very frequent users may need to replace their vape coils weekly. It’s important to always have replacement vape coils readily available - you’ll need to replace your coil eventually, so it’s best to be prepared before the time comes.
How To Choose The Perfect Vape Coils
Unfortunately, vape coils are not universal and every coil won’t work properly with every device. Here are a few tips to ensure you choose the right vape coils for your device:
Choose The Same Vape Brand - Manufacturers usually produce a line of vape coils that are compatible with their specific devices. When purchasing new vape replacement coils, look for options from the same brand as the device that you are using.
Consider The Resistance - Most lines of vape coils come in several resistance level choices to help you achieve the best experience. Coil manufacturers typically list which wattage range is ideal for the particular resistance levels of their vape coils. Before purchasing new coils, consider which wattage you typically vape at and purchase a coil that is ideal for that wattage range.
Check Recommendations - At Vaping.com, we make it easy to pick the best vape coils. Not only do we explicitly state which devices our coils are compatible with, we also list the best wattage range; eliminating the need to guess and allowing you to make the best choice!
Troubleshooting your vape coils
Pre-made vape coils are easy to install, but sometimes, an issue may occur. Here are a few common vape coil issues and the solutions you need to fix them:
Device Won’t Fire After Replacing Vape Coils: Typically, this means that your vape coil is installed incorrectly. Likely, it may not be screwed in evenly. Empty your tank and unscrew your vapor coil. Screw it back in, ensuring that it is screwed in evenly.
Vape Juice Tastes Burnt After New Vape Coil Is Installed: This likely means that you have burned out the coil by taking a dry pull from your vape device. The coil will likely still work, but this will affect the taste of your vape juice until it is replaced.
Atomizer Leaking After Vape Coil Replacement: Usually, this means that you are not installing your vape coils properly. Unscrew and reinstall your coil, ensuring that it is screwed in evenly. If the device is still leaking, refer to our “Is Your Vape Leaking” troubleshooting guide.
