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:
- When compared to previous vaping experiences, you may notice that the taste of your vape is incredibly faint or perhaps non-existent.
- 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).
- You will get a burnt taste when you vape.
- 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.
- 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)
- As needed, replace the coil.
- Always keep your tank full, preferably above the refill line.
- 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)
- Replace your coils as needed.
- When vaping, ensure that all air flow holes are completely open for maximum cloud creation.
- Use a high or even maximum VG juice for the finest flavour and thickest clouds.
- Always ensure that the wick (cotton) in your coil is completely wet.
- When using a fresh coil, always reduce the power for the first 10-20 pulls.
Battery life and charging
- 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..
- Do not charge your device for more than 4 hours; overnight charging is strongly discouraged in the vaping world.
- 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.
- 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.
- It is strongly advised that you turn off your device when charging it. During the charging process, this will protect your battery and circuitry.
