Coils Guide

Choosing your coil

What does 'ohms' or resistance mean?
Resistance is a term that describes the force that opposes the flow of electron current in a conductor. Resistance is measured in units called ohms. The scientific definition of one ohm is the amount of electrical resistance that exists in an electrical circuit when one amp of current is flowing with one volt being applied to the circuit. In relation to electronic cigarettes, the lower the ohm, the quicker the atomiser heats up. This translates to more vapour, but coils with very low resistances (0.2ohms - 1.0ohms) will require a battery with higher power (20w+).

Which coil do I need for my tank?
With a few exceptions, most tanks use proprietary coils. Our website makes it quite simple to find the correct coil for your device. All hardware compatible with your device is listed as associated products with your device.

Using your coil

How do I use a fresh coil for the first time?
When using a new coil, or using your tank for the first time, drop 2 or 3 drops of e-liquid directly onto the cotton of the coil and then screw the coil into your tank and wait at least 5 minutes before firing your device. This is to ensure that the cotton wicks in your coil are completely saturated with eLiquid. If they are not completely saturated, you may end up burning dry cotton, which could ruin the coil. E-liquid with a higher VG percentage will often take longer to fully wick.

What is the life expectancy of a coil?
When using a new coil, or using your tank for the first time, drop 2 or 3 drops of eLiquid directly onto the coil and then screw the coil into your tank and wait at least 5 minutes before firing your device. This is to ensure that the cotton wicks in your coil are completely saturated with eLiquid. If they are not completely saturated, you may end up burning dry cotton, which could ruin the coil. eLiquids with a higher VG percentage will often take longer to fully wick.

How do I know if need to change my coil?
You can tell if the atomiser head needs to be replaced when there is a significant lack of vapour or if you get a burning almost smoky taste.

Troubleshooting

Why does my coil taste burnt?
The most likely reason why a coil tastes burnt is because the cotton in your coil isn’t sufficiently saturated with e-liquid. If you get a strong burning taste with a new coil, throw it out and use a new one. When using a fresh coil, always wait about 5 minutes after closing your tank so that the e-liquid fully saturates into the cotton.

Why can't I taste my e-liquid properly?
This is probably because your coil needs to be changed. If your e-liquid still doesn’t taste quite right after changing the coil, try a different e-liquid as your taste buds may have become very used to the flavour you’ve been vaping and in are in need of a change. This is a condition known as ‘Vapers Tongue'.
