Changing coils in an electronic cigarette

By IQOS Team

Changing coils in an electronic cigarette

The coil is an essential component in many vapes, and it plays a vital role in the way the device functions. Typically, this part of a device is designed to be replaced relatively frequently. Of course, this depends on the device, and how you use it, so please always ensure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Learning how and when you may need to change the coil on a vape can be a useful part of your vape device maintenance and care routine. So let’s get started.

Tips for changing a coil in a vape

As is the case with other components in a vape, when you replace a coil depends on factors, such as the device itself, including how you vape and how frequently you vape. Over time, a coil may begin to degrade and, when this happens, you should consider that you may need to change the vape coil, if possible, in relation to the device you use and in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.

There are some indicators that may offer an indication of coil degradation that you should be aware of. These indicators can help you recognize when to change the vape coil. Watch for weak vapour production, as less vapour than usual can indicate an ineffective coil. Another indication is certain sounds whilst vaping, which may indicate the coil is being overused - or it could be that the e-liquid is leaking or spitting.

Why you should change a coil

If a vape coil is faulty or degrading, a new one might improve the vaping experience. Ignoring the signs of degradation may eventually lead to coil burning out, potentially affecting your e-liquid’s colour and giving off a burnt taste the next time you vape. Swapping the coil before this time, while also cleaning your device regularly can prevent damage to the device.

How to change a coil on a vape

Every vape is different, so it’s important to check the manufacturer’s guidance before you change your vape coil. A useful starting point is to put down paper towels or an old newspaper to protect your surface. Then follow the steps below:

  1. Disassemble the vape device to access the coil. Carefully take it apart. You may wish to wrap your device in a paper towel or cloth to prevent getting any e-liquid on your fingers. Drain away any remaining e-liquid from the tank and dispose of it. Your tank should be clear of e-liquid before you can refill it.
  2. Remove the coil. Carefully unscrew the old coil, dispose of it correctly, and find your replacement.
  3. Replace the coil and wick, in case the latter doesn’t come as part of it. Screw in the new coil and add a few drops of e-liquid directly onto it. By giving the new wick time to absorb the e-liquid, it is possible to protect the new coil. This detail can help to prevent the new coil from burning out.
  4. Test the vape. Fill the tank with e-liquid and secure it to your device by screwing it in. Then test the device to ensure it is functioning properly.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Smoking alternatives are not risk free. They deliver nicotine, which is addictive. They are intended for use by adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use nicotine products and are by no means a cessation method.
The best option to reduce the health risks associated with the use of tobacco and nicotine products is to quit their use altogether. However, for those adults who would otherwise continue to smoke, switching completely to vaping or heated tobacco products could be a better choice than continuing to smoke.
