HOW TO CLEAN A VAPE COIL
(5 min read)
Depending on the VG and PG level of your e-liquid, your coils can get a little bit messy and build up a layer of what can only be described as gunk. One of the easiest ways on how to clean a vape coil is called ‘dry burning’, and it’s a lot easier than it sounds.
First, remove the wicking material from your rebuildable coil. Then, heat the coil in 2 second bursts by “pulsing” the firing button on your mod until you can see them glowing orange. Vapour will start to form (this is the gunk being burnt on the surface of the coil) which can then be blown away.
Once the gunk is all gone, let the coil cool down again, give it one last blow and you’re ready to go. Rewick and drip onto the coil and you can start vaping again. The first few hits might not taste entirely normal, but that’s just the coil getting back into the swing of things.
WHAT KIND OF TANK SHOULD I USE WITH MY COIL?
Unbelievably there was a time when you couldn’t change your own coils. More modern atomizers have made it possible and it opened up a world of rebuilding and customisation.
Top and bottom coil: Tanks have either a bottom-coil or top-coil design. If the coil is at the top, it requires less wicking material and is the design you usually find in rebuildable atomizers. Liquid is absorbed from wells or dripped directly onto the cotton to be vaped. Bottom-coil is more commonly associated with replaceable coils and absorb e-liquid from wicking holes in the coil.
DUAL COIL: Dual coil atomizers are another new one, using an equal amount of electricity to both coils, lowering the overall resistance. These use a lot of power, so the question is more ‘which battery do I need?’ rather than ‘which tank do I need?’. RDAs have different kinds of decks, some of them are equipped for dual or even triple coils allowing for even greater vapour production.

VERTICAL COIL: Vertical coils are starting to overtake dual coil because the coil is extended upwards, dramatically improving flavour and vapour production. One of the newest examples is the Aspire Cleito Exo vape tank.
