How often should coils be changed ?
Hey guys and gals I was just wondering how often my coils should be changed ? Is it by taste ? Will I know when ? Thank you for your consideration.

RE: How often should coils be changed ?
Premade? You could just get a bad taste or it could get a little leaky or even stop working altogether. Somtimes you can tell by the colour of the juice in your tank being a lot darker than it is in the bottle. The norm would see a coil last 1 week to 4 weeks.

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

if you are making your own coils it will just need the cotton taking out a dry burn and new cotton putting back in
I usually do this every week
I usually put new coils in every couple of months




if at first you don't succeed ,call it version 1.0

New wicking every 2 - 3 days, it is easy to do just takes a few minutes. I don't want to vape gunk.  A new coil can be up to several weeks. But it depends, wider spaced coils from thicker wire can last quite well.

I'd change your coil about once a month.  Just remember when you are changing cotton to clean the coil and you won't get any nasty hits
