If you're new to vaping or using e-cigs, it's crucial to understand what vape coils do. Coils are not immortal and thus wear out after a certain period of usage. Therefore, it’s vital to know when to change it. Coils are not meant to last forever and by taking extra care and cleaning them regularly, they will last longer. But the coil itself needs to be changed periodically. There are some ways to recognize when its time is up and replacing it would be the only way to help it revert to its original state. Here are some signs to watch out for in order to know when to change your vape coil.
This is the most noticeable of all the signs that prominently says that it's time for a change. Every vaper will experience this at one time or another as with each drag, the horrible taste hits the back of the throat which is very unpleasant and leaves one with a bad taste in their mouth or even makes one feel sick! When this taste arises, replacement is warranted as the wick has burnt out and salvaging it is useless.
Not always a sign of coil replacement and could be something else, but it definitely means something is up with the device. In some cases, gurgling occurs due to the coil not being fit in properly and often it happens right after replacing it. Try to unscrew it and reattach the coil ensuring that all hole’s line up properly. However, if it's still gurgling while using it, the coil needs changing again. If it still persists, talk to the experts at the vape shop.
Mostly experienced vapers would experience this and for novice users, it may be a little hard to define. Even by using the same liquid, the taste is not the same and some complain that it just doesn’t hit the spot. It may be dull, a bit odd or even flavorless. The liquid would appear somewhat darker than usual which is by virtue of other colors in the tank. Mostly, the coil has taken in so many e-liquids that it fails to give off the usual flavor one expects. Coil replacement will cure this.
There comes a time in every coil’s life that it exhausts its life. Getting there may take some time or no time at all, depending on the usage. By judging the frequency of how many times one tends to vape, it can be determined when the appropriate time for change is due. Using a certain kind of liquid also plays a key role in the life of a coil as well. For heavy vapers, it may last for a week or more. For light users, it may be extended up to four weeks. Regardless of vaping habits, a coil has to be changed at least once a month.
