3 Things That Affect Your Coil’s Lifespan


Since we are on the topic of coils, I’d like to tackle another common question I get from my readers: How often should I replace my coils?

I covered that topic in my previous post, but I’d like to go into it further (that’s what she said!) by sharing with you guys 3 things that affect the life span of your coils.

3.) E-Juice – This is a problem of mine, since I love high VG juice. I will not vape on anything 50/50, even 60/40 blends.

The problem with high VG juices? They are a lot thicker so they leave a lot of residue or gunk on your coils. This can affect the taste and performance.

High VG juice may get you bigger clouds, but you have to change your coils more often compared to other juices.

2.) Wattage – Another thing that affects your coil’s lifespan is the wattage. The higher the wattage, the hotter your coils,  the more wear and tear on your coils.

Kanthal coil lasts the longest out of all the coils being the most durable, so keep that in mind.

1.) How often you vape – And lastly, how often you vape determines how long your coils will last.

Here’s one way I started to track how much I vape: puff counters. They work great plus it’s a feature that you can find in almost all the new mods coming out.

After I monitored how much I vaped each day for about a week, I was able to determine how it affected my coils and how often I would have to change them.

Getting a better understanding of what affects your coils will give you a clearer idea of when to replace your coils. Nobody likes the taste of a burnt atomizer so knowing this will prevent you from ever having to go through this problem!
