For sure there were many situations when someone had problems with a burnt wick. If you`re wondering when you know that your coil is burnt, well, you simply get a burnt taste when pressing the fire button and inhaling.
The problem with the burnt coil is not only the absolutely gross taste but also the fact that it can ruin the whole coil head which means it might be necessary to get some extra money to buy a new one.
But luckily we`ve got your back so we will present some of the best tips in order to avoid early coil burning issues forever.
It`s advisable to prime coils before vaping
This process is pretty primordial when it comes about coils as otherwise you may burn them in a split of a second. The burning process happens when the wick is dry. When you fill the tank with juice the wick needs to get soaked in the juice.
A good practice is to wait for 10 minutes before starting vaping if a new coil was installed.
In this way you will avoid the nasty burnt taste and keep your coil head safe. You can even manually prime your coils by pouring some juice onto the wick. The whole prime process will make sure that your coil is soaked enough in e-liquid in order to avoid fast coil burning.
Chain vaping is not OK!
Yes, we know that vaping is fun, but some vapers make the mistake of vaping on and on without considering the consequences regarding the coil. Therefore, there might be a problem in the sense that if you vape on and on for a long period of time, you don`t give a proper chance for the coil to get re-saturated.
Therefore, a good advice is to vape for 5-10 minutes and then let the tank for a minute.
The power can be reduced a little
When vaping at a high wattage for sure you will produce more vapor and you love that. But at the same time, you will also vaporize faster the juice available in your tank. So, in case of vaping a lot at a high wattage, the coils will not have time to refill properly, you may need to reduce the power setting if you want to avoid the burning nasty idea.
Some may even recommend to start vaping at a lower wattage and just increase the wattage throughout the day.
Pay attention to the juice level!
When the amount of juice available in the tank is low, for sure there is no chance for the wicks to soak very well. To be sure you will always have the best experience, it is important to keep the juice level up. You can always detect the level of the juice available in the tank by checking it through the pyrex glass.
Also, if the flavor diminishes in strength it means that the liquid in the tank is at a very low level. Another good trick is to simply rotate the tank just to make sure that the cotton gets immersed.
Sweetener is not welcome
Usually, e-juices have different sweeteners added for the flavor to be rich and delicious. Still, when containing a high level of sweetener, the juice can caramelize. The dark lighted juices tend to have a large amount of sweetener than a lighter juice.
But in case you love the very sweet flavor, there is also a solution in cleaning the cotton either with the help of water or with the help of alcohol. After you finished cleaning the coil make sure to wait a good amount of time until it gets completely dry.
Go for hight PG juice!
It is quite known that the PG juice is quite thinner than the VG. This means that the PG juice will get a shorter amount of time in soaking into cotton. So if you have dry puffs or you have burnt your coil, this could also be a simple reason of why it happened.
TC is the solution
Temperature control, also known as TC can easily solve the problem with the burned coil. The mods that include this mode usually detect the changes in resistance when a coil material is heated, therefore it will give the possibility to set a certain maximum of temperature for the coil. In case the mod arrives at that maximum temperature, it will stop getting any hotter.
Therefore, you can directly purchase the mod with TC mode on materials like nickel, titanium or stainless steel. The wide market of vaping offers various models of mods that support the TC mode. Your role is to choose the mod that is proper for your needs and just start using it.
All in a nutshell, it may look a little bit complicated to keep your tank away from problems. Still, it is worth the effort of learning on how to protect your coils as this will not only keep you away from spending some extra money on extra coils, but will also help in keeping a good and smooth vaping experience. Your coils will be protected from any unnatural burning situation.
Just pay attention to your mod, take care of it and notice any changes in flavor or vapor production.
