What are vape coils?
If you’ve spent any time at all Googling vaping-related topics, then chances are that you’ve come across the term “vape coils”, “coils”, “vaping coils” or any one of those related terms.
In case you didn’t know, the vape coil, atomizers and their replacements will help keep your vape tank fresh and your e-liquids tasting their absolute best (what’s a vape tank you ask? It’s not something that you have worry about when you’re using pod systems, because the pod is the modern solution to the archaic contraption known as tanks). That’s just something that people with huge customizable vape set ups have to deal with on a weekly basis. The atomizer in your unit is responsible for heating and vaporizing your e-liquid – it’s the workhorse of your setup (the atomizer in FLOW pod system vape pens is a patented ceramic honeycomb atomizer that heats and cools at will, meaning that you e-liquid will never be taste burnt, but that’s beside the point).
The mechanics of the vaping coil are relatively simple – a coil of wire is wrapped in some type of wicking material, and the e-liquid is absorbed by the wick. When you activate your device, your vape batteries heat your coil and the e-liquid is vaporized for a blissful mist of vaporized flavors.
The biggest variable in your replacement coil choice is the resistance, which lets you customize your vaping to your preference. Lower ohms mean more current and a hotter coil, which means warmer and more voluminous vapor. If you prefer a cooler vape, go with a higher resistance coil (Plug #3: the FLOW pod system vape pen uses a hotter wick that produces voluminous vapor but never burns up. How is that possible? Now that’s a trade secret that we can’t share with you).
As for the ohm, it’s defined as an electrical resistance between two points of a conductor when a constant potential difference of one volt, applied to these points, produces in the conductor a current of one ampere, the conductor not being the seat of any electromotive force. Don’t worry about it If that doesn’t exactly make things clear, we just put it there to make what we’re about to say sound scientific.
How Often Do You Need To Replace Your Coils?
Your vaporizer coil will need to be replaced once it has become too soiled to perform properly (How annoying is that). The frequency of how often you will need to change your vape coil will depend on many factors such as how often you vape, what temperature you prefer to vape at, what type of vape juice you are using, and more. Some vape users can go several weeks without vape replacement coils, while some very frequent users may need to replace their vape coils weekly.
Now this is something that you absolutely do not need to worry with with the pod system vape ben because the coils are inside the pod systems. The quality of the coils undergo rigorous testing to ensure that they stand up to the test of time. Never worry about a burnt flavor when you’re vaping the FLOW pod system vape pen.
What Are Some Common Issues with Vape Coils?
Even though the following information only apply to those who choose to have a more arduous vaping experience, here at FLOW, we like to share our knowledge with those that choose to remain out in the cold.
For those of you who enjoy the process of replacing vaping coils, please note a few common vape coil issues and the solutions you need to fix them:
1. Device Won’t Fire After Replacing Vape Coils: Typically, this means that your vape coil is installed incorrectly. Likely, it may not be screwed in evenly. Empty your tank and unscrew your vapor coil. Screw it back in, ensuring that it is screwed in evenly.
2. Vape Juice Tastes Burnt After New Vape Coil Is Installed: This likely means that you have burned out the coil by taking a dry pull from your vape device. The coil will likely still work, but this will affect the taste of your vape juice until it is replaced.
3. Atomizer Leaking After Vape Coil Replacement: Usually, this means that you are not installing your vape coils properly. Unscrew and reinstall your coil, ensuring that it is screwed in evenly. If the device is still leaking, refer to our “Is Your Vape Leaking” troubleshooting guide.
