4 Easy and Interesting Techniques to Prevent Coil Burnouts in 2022
For both new and advanced vapers, there is nothing quite as frustrating as getting an unpleasant taste of what should otherwise be a comforting hit. When a coil burns, the vaper is left with a delicate flavor of a stack of old newspaper. Beyond that, the coil may completely burnout forcing the vaper to purchase a new one. When the coil is a little burnt, you will get a slightly burnt taste that should alert you something is wrong.
Understand that a burnt coil producing harmful chemicals. So, what can you do to prevent coil burnouts?
Prevention Technique #1: Prime Your Coils Before Vaping
Before vaping on a new coil, remember to prime it. Prime stands for “readiness to”. When priming a vaping device, you gotta be sure it’s done in line with how the device works and how the power source works with it.
If you’re using general tanks that perform at about 1-ohm resistance, ensure the coil sits in the tank with juice. This will enable the cotton to absorb the e-liquid completely. It is the surest way to prep the coil to ensure it burns evenly and longer.
Sub-Ohm attys are a little different because with them coils get hotter and when used in the right way they last longer. It means they have to be primed differently. In sub-ohm tanks, coils are built like rebuildable. When priming such types of coils, drop enough amount of e-liquid inside the build to ensure no cotton is left dry.
Also, priming prevents accidental blow up of the battery as a result of coil cotton catching fire.
Prevention Technique #2: Reduce Your Power Setting
The power for which you vape at, does have a major impact on your coil. Small tank system e-cig only supports low-wattage vaping. Vaping at high wattages vaporizes more juice with every puff. If you’re looking for large clouds, this could work for you. However, it can destroy your coils. Vaping e-juice at faster rates makes your wick struggle to soak the juice fast enough to keep up. When it fails to keep up, the wick burns. If you notice your flavor is dying out after vaping, your coil could be getting dry and in need of juice. When that happens, it is advisable to give vaping a break.
To ensure it does not happen again, reduce your wattage. Every coil comes with directions on how to adjust wattages and which are best for that particular coil. Sticking to the recommended level means you will have a smooth vaping experience.
Prevention Technique #3: Use Temperature Control
Experienced vapers understand that overheating when trying to push the device to the limit is dangerous. Hot vapor can burn the wick. When that happens, dry hits which result in awful flavors are produced. In the vaping devices, there are no actual heat sensors. TC mods only monitor coil resistance as it is heated. Every change is detected in resistance causing the temperature control to adjust the device automatically. It can restrict or totally cut off power to prevent coil damage. The only challenge is that you need a compatible tank and e-cig that support titanium, nickel, or stainless-steel coils.
Prevention Technique #4: Keep the Tank Topped Up
When the e-juice is low, the wicks struggle to absorb it. In different coil heads, the juice must be at a certain level to get to the wicking ports. ‘Top’ solution is to keep the tank topped up. When the flavor diminishes, give your tank a refill. If you don’t want the flavors to mix, you can empty the juice first. You can also rotate your tank so the wicks can absorb the liquid.
