How to Add Coils to Your Vape Kit: A Step-by-Step Guide

Vaping enthusiasts know that coils play a pivotal role in achieving a satisfying vaping experience. Whether you're new to vaping or just trying to master coil replacement, this step-by-step guide will walk you through the process of adding coils to your vape kit.

Applying cotton to a vape coil

What You'll Need:

  1. Your Vape Kit
  2. Replacement Coils
  3. Tweezers (Optional)
  4. Cotton (Optional)

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Before you start, make sure you have your vape kit, replacement coils, and any additional tools you might need, such as tweezers or cotton for wicking.

Step 2: Prepare Your Vape Kit

If your vape kit has a removable tank, detach it from the device. This will give you easier access to the coil housing.

Step 3: Remove the Old Coil

If you're replacing an old coil, gently unscrew it counter clockwise from the base of the tank. Use tweezers if needed, being careful not to damage any of the surrounding parts.

Step 4: Prime the New Coil (Optional)

For optimal flavour and vapour production, it's recommended to prime your new coil. Drip a few drops of e-liquid onto the cotton-wicking ports of the coil to saturate them. This prevents dry hits and helps the coil last longer.

Step 5: Insert the New Coil

Screw the new coil into the base of the tank, clockwise. Make sure it's snug but not over-tightened to avoid damaging the threading.

Step 6: Assemble Your Vape Kit

Reattach the tank to your vape device. Ensure all parts are properly connected and secure.

Step 7: Fill the Tank

If your tank is now empty, fill it with your preferred e-liquid. Allow the tank to sit for a few minutes to ensure the coil is thoroughly saturated.

Step 8: Start Vaping

Power on your vape device and start vaping at a lower wattage to break in the new coil gradually. As you vape, gradually increase the wattage to your preferred setting.

Pro Tip: Keep an eye on your e-liquid levels to avoid vaping on an empty tank, which could lead to dry hits and potentially damage the coil.
