Vaping Top Tips

How to tell when your coil needs changing 

Coils have a finite lifespan, and when one dies, the vaping community refers to it as "burnt." Here are some pointers to help you determine if your coil is burnt:

  1. When compared to previous vaping experiences, you may notice that the taste of your vape is incredibly faint or perhaps non-existent.
  2. Your vape may not generate as much cloud/vapour, but this is also an indication of a low battery, therefore it is conceivable that the problem is not with your coil (but it is still a sign of a burnt coil).
  3. You will get a burnt taste when you vape.
  4. Your device may begin to leak as a result of oversaturation of your coil, which means it is now flooded and unable to maintain the essential barrier to prevent liquid leaking.
  5. In sub-ohm vapes, if you remove the coil and notice that the cotton inside is pitch black, replace it right away; new coils have pure white cotton.

Ways to maximise your vaping experience (regular vaping) 

  1. As needed, replace the coil.
  2. Always keep your tank full, preferably above the refill line.
  3. Make sure you're properly storing your device, with nothing on top providing pressure to it; excessive pressure can damage your device and cause leaks.

Ways to maximise your vaping experience (sub-ohm)

  1. Replace your coils as needed.
  2. When vaping, ensure that all air flow holes are completely open for maximum cloud creation.
  3. Use a high or even maximum VG juice for the finest flavour and thickest clouds.
  4. Always ensure that the wick (cotton) in your coil is completely wet.
  5. When using a fresh coil, always reduce the power for the first 10-20 pulls.

Battery life and charging 

  1. Allow your device's battery to totally drain before charging it to ensure a long battery life. Using this technology, batteries can be "taught" to work optimally..
  2. Do not charge your device for more than 4 hours; overnight charging is strongly discouraged in the vaping world.
  3. It is recommended that you charge your gadgets' batteries using a laptop/PC, but if all of your laptop/USB PC's ports are in use, a portable charger would suffice. You should not charge your device with a wall plug since these plugs can transfer too much power through your battery, causing it to shut down briefly.
  4. Before removing your tank, ensure that all of the connecting points are clean and dry. A clogged connection point prevents a correct connection between your tank and device, resulting in the device failing to fire when activated.
  5. It is strongly advised that you turn off your device when charging it. During the charging process, this will protect your battery and circuitry.
