How to Choose the Best Vape Coil

Vape coils are one of the most important parts of your vaping experience and, as they are the most replaced part of your vaping device other than the e-liquid, choosing the best vape coil is a bit of a science. Atomizers, atomizer heads, coils…while this tiny piece of wire seems banal in its existence, it is actually the heart of your vape and creates the flavor-rich vape clouds that you’ve grown to love. 

Not only is it essential in creating the vapor, but the type of coil is directly related to the amount of vapor that you get with each draw. Because of the big role it plays in your vaping device, the vape coil wears out even faster than the batteries. So, whether you’re looking to replace your coil or if it’s your first time and you want to know which will give you the best vaping experience, you’ll need some basic knowledge of what to look for in a coil.

What is a vape coil?

Even though they are most often referred to as vape coils, their technical name is atomizer heads because of its position inside the atomizer. Housed inside the vape tank, the atomizer head contains a coil of thin wire and wicking material. There are many different vape coils to choose from including different resistances and coil materials and the right one for you depends on what kind of vaper you are. 

In order for you to fully understand the purpose of the atomizer head, we have to get a little techy. Bear with us. An atomizer head converts energy from the e-cigarette battery, heats the coil inside which then vaporizes the e-liquid which you then inhale. The atomizer is made of three main parts:

Vape coil part #1: the body

The body supports the different parts of the atomizer. It is the outer casing and attaches to the base of the tank and provides that electrical contact to the coil.

Vape coil part #2: the coil

The actual coil is thin wire that is wrapped into a coil. When you press the button on your vape device, it provides power to the coil which then converts the energy to heat and vaporizes the liquid from the saturated wicking material.

Vape coil part #3: Wicking Material

The wicking material is an absorbent material that sits within the atomizer and either surrounds or is inserted through the coil. 

Determining which vape coil is best for you

In order to determine which vape coil is right for you, you have to determine what’s most important to you.

  • Do you want to have the purest and best flavor?
  • Are you looking for the most economical choice?
  • Are you looking for the coil that will not need to be replaced as often?

Best vape coil for flavor chasers

If your goal in vaping is to mix and match flavors to find the best flavor combos, then you want a vape coil that is going to produce the purest taste. Mesh coils are a relatively new standard for flavor chasers.

Best vape coil for your budget

We will freely admit that vaping can add up so if you’re looking for a coil that is cost effective, you’ll want one that is inexpensive to replace. Manufacturers have made it their mission to find ways to make coils more affordable, some of which use ceramic cores which won’t need to be replaced so frequently.

Best vape coil for longer vape lifespan

While it is necessary for the function of your vape to replace the coil every so often, there are some vape coils that offer longevity. Coils that are designed for a longer lifespan tend can work at lower wattages or with temperature control mods.

When should you change out your vape coil?

Like we said, vape coils have the shortest lifespan in a vape device aside from the e-liquid. You’ll be able to use your senses to determine that something is off when your vape coil needs to be replaced. You might start producing less vapor or clouds, see leaks in your device, or have a burnt taste in your mouth after taking a drag. 

You may also hear a gurgling sound which will tell you that it’s high time you replace your coil. If you do so and the device continues to make that noise, check in with the experts at Vapor Chasers so that we can take a closer look and get you back up and running in no time.
