If you’re new to using an e-cigarette, you may find it quite confusing to recognize terms and label the components of your vape correctly. We’ve got your back with our little introductory guides for beginners, and today we will talk about vape coils. Stay tuned to know all about it!
What are Vape Coils?
Vape coils are what makes the liquid (vape oil) heat up, converting it into a cloud in the vape pen, and are one of the most essential parts in e-cigarettes.
The structure of a vape coil consists of a wire spirally wrapped around the vape wick. The vape coil is fitted in the atomizer head, where the coil connects the positive side of the battery to the negative pole. An e-cigarette or vape pen’s wick will be soaked in e-liquid, which comes in several flavors and enhancements. Once the battery is operational and the vape coil heats up, it also heats the liquid in the wick into vapor that gives the effect of smoke.
This e-vapor travels up the tank chimney which is also called the clearomizer so you can inhale the vapor to, well, vape. What you experience is the flavor and the CBD from the e-liquid settling in depending on the ohm specification.
The wire for vape coils is created using heat conducting, anti-corrosive, and high heat resistance metals such as stainless steel.
People who are seasoned vapers make their own replacements with vape coil building 101 techniques, which saves them a lot of dollars when it can be an easy DIY. It also makes customizing your wick and vape resistance simple. However, the majority of the vapers just choose to buy their replacements as it saves time and effort.
Are Vape Coils Different From Atomizer Heads?
An atomizer head is also called a coil since they include the e-wick, vape coil and casing for replacement. Vape coil is a component of the atomizer head, which is why it can also be called an atomizer coil.
What is Ohm in Coils?
Every coil comes with a specified ‘Ohm’ which shows how much electrical resistance the coil you’re using provides. Vape coils usually come with an ohm range between 2.4-2.8 Ohms. The most preferred resistance is 2.5ohms.
If you’re a beginner, you can start vaping with the 2.4-2.8 Ohm range of vape coil and atomizer and see how it feels for you, then increase it bit by bit if you want more resistance.
How Do You Know It Is Time To Change Your Vape Coil?
Replacing vape coils when the e-liquid starts to taste burnt, pale or simply strange is important. You will also notice the vape cloud not being as substantial, which is when you need to replace the coil. It is also necessary to check your model to buy the right coil for it, else your e-cigarette or vape pen may not work. Talking of timelines, you can change the coil every few weeks, depending on the frequency of your vaping.
