Replacing coil/filter

  • #1

    Hi. Vaping over a month now & getting on extraordinarily well. My only motivation was Financial & I am certainly noticing the extra few shillings in my pocket. How do you know when the coil thingy needs replacing? I have changed mine once - just to get the hang of it, but I'm curious to know how will I know it NEEDS to be replaced? Thanks

  • Once you notice the flavour of your juice dropping off or if you get a burning taste then it's time to change.
    Some juices are harder on coils than others, highly sweetened juice will gunk up a coil quickly and you'll need to change more frequently.




  • Another giveaway is a dry hit - can happen if there's no liquid left in the tank but also if the cotton has packed it in and can't absorb liquid as easily. You'll notice from the cough-inducing dry throat feel usually.




  • If it NEEDS to be replaced, you'll know it straight away! People get mad into the flavours, and as soon as the flavour drops a little bit they'll change the coil. But you could limp on for another few days no bother, with a slightly burned taste creeping in - but once it's vaping fine and you're getting your nicotine you're grand. You said you're vaping a month - your taste buds will be redeveloping for the next few months, and after that you might find yourself changing coils once a week for the constant fresh taste. But until then, don't worry about it. Just make sure you have a spare coil or two, cos when you get a dry hit you'll know all about it...! Fire in the lungs hurts like crazy!




  • Aw, thank you all so much. I am so absolutely delighted with myself for going 5 weeks without buying cigarettes, I'd feckin' hate it if technology was the reason I went back to square one. I'm anal at the best of times, (I think it could be a seige mentality) so I have stockpiled 12 bottles of juice & a five-pack of coils 'just in case'.

    Well done! It's probably wise to have a few spares handy. It's not a bad idea to have a backup device available as well, just in case your main one breaks and you're tempted. Some people opt for having a cheap disposable "pod" system, but seems like most vapers get the collecting bug and end up with enough gear to stock a small shop. Whichever way you go, best of luck!
