RE: STOP THROWING AWAY COILS
Still better to make your own.

I have two year old coils that are still good.

OK, I've replaced the (cotton) wicks dozens of times but that is easy and costs approximately nothing,.

 I am one that does my own coils in a RTDA and it is fairly easy to change the cotton out and clean the coils.

What RDTA do you have? I have a Limitless Plus I really like. I use my Crius Plus 90% of the time though.

(15-01-2017 03:00 AM)blakeblood9 Wrote:  Good afternoon, I've been vaping for around a year to a year and a half. And ill tell you what. I've been through 15 coils. I would say once a month i would have to purchase a $5-$10 coil from the shop. In otherwords i paid $75-150 a year for coils. If you do this, you stopped at the right place. I will now explain how i dont replace my coils for up to 6 months of using them.

Firstly take care of your coils, Always vape at recommended wattage. and always have a full to 3/4 of a tank. Never try to hotbox the shit out of something. (Hitting in 20 times in a minute isnt really good for the coil it gets kinda dry and burnt)

i can go all day on how to take care of coils. Trust me i learned a lot.

Now you happen to f*** up your coil before seeing this thread... now what? go buy a $10 coil. NOPE!

I'll explain how to fix the burnt taste from your ecig/coil and how to fix that!

Firstly take out the coil, now grab a small container and put just enough water for your coil to go into. Now heat the water in microwave (you can also use a pan). carefully take the container of hot water and simply drop your sub omh coil into the water and dump water and put cold water in it to cool down the coil. pick up the coil and spray it out a lot of burnt shit and ejuice should fall out. Now if that doesnt happen kept repeating til it does

What I have found quite effective is to take the coil out of the vape and soak it for at least several hours (overnight preferably) in a very high proof ethanol (the drinking kind). There's many such products, such as Ever Clear (90 proof) at liquor stores. The ethanol is a better solvent than just water for the type crud that builds up in a coil. Be sure to let the treated coil dry out thoroughly before re-assembling because the alcohol is extremely flammable. And hey, if you want, drink the rest of the bottle if you're so inclined!

RE: STOP THROWING AWAY COILS
For the cost of these things cleaning is not worth the trouble, anyway it is the cotton that deteriorates not the coil. If you use factory coils they can never be the same after cleaning - best just throw them away and get a nice clean vape with a new coil. For self made coils all you do is rewick - the coil itself will last quite a while under normal vaping. As far as using Ethanol, if you do want to clean them, it would be better using cheap Vodka - which is really diluted Ethanol. As for drinking this stuff - I would rather keep my eyesight and drink something more sensible.

RE: STOP THROWING AWAY COILS
Anyone concerned enough with the cost of coils to go through the ordeal of cleaning them definitely needs to switch to DIY coil making. If I could get the vape I wanted with disposables and cost was not a factor, I would use them. Regardless of how easy it is to re-wick your DIY deck (and it is easy for sure), it's still easier to unscrew a coil and screw in a new one. But, until the cost comes down to the equivalent of DIY, I won't be springing for disposables. Not to mention, no one I know makes an RDA type deck with disposables.

And of course the fun and sense of accomplishment that comes with DIY'ing your own stuff.

Ditto! Just setup my first RDTA and although it took me an hour being my first time...this is so much easier and cost effective than buying disposable coils that were burning out pretty quickly!
