A Vaporizer coil is an electrical heating component that acts like the middleman between the battery and your vaporizer. A vaporizer device has a glass or plastic bowl, which houses your vaporizer and a heated coil. But you can’t simply use any old coil with just any vaporizer. You need to find the right one for your personal Vaporizer.
The coils on a Vaporizer are usually made of either stainless steel or high quality plated metal. Depending on what you are using your vaporizer for, you will probably want to pick out a different material. For example, if you are looking for a nice throaty smooth taste in your Vaporizer then you may want to stick with a high quality stainless steel coil. If you are looking for tons of vapor, then you may want to go with a thin wire mesh coil. And if you are looking for a long lasting, strong hit then go with the highest quality wire mesh possible.
The next part of your Vaporizer, the atomizer head, is made out of what is called wire mesh. This is similar to the wire mesh used in electronic cigarettes, only it is not made to go into a cigarette. Instead, the wires inside the mesh are to channel e-juice from the tank directly into the wick. There are two main types of Vape Coils:
If you are building your own personal Vaporizer then you don’t have to worry about purchasing a coil. But if you would like to make some changes to the build of your Vape Coil then you can. Usually you will have to pull apart the Vaporizer and strip the copper or other material off of the coils. Then you can do a bit of modification with the resistance wire by soldering on new wires and soldering them to the old resistance wire that’s left.
You need to use an ohmmeter to check the resistance of the coils, also known as RDA. You can get an ohmmeter in any local electronics store. It will take around 2 minutes to read the ohmmeter and give you a reading of either low resistance or full resistance. If you notice a change, it is good to remove the ohm meter and test the resistance with your RDA. Sometimes the coils may be too low or full of resistance and you will need to replace the ohmmeter.
If you are using a stainless steel coil, you will most likely need to replace the Ohmmeter with a non corrosive stainless steel RDA. This will allow you to enjoy your Vaping experience without any problems. Non corrosive RDA’s are able to withstand the elements in your home such as steam and humidity. Many people who have stainless steel coils choose to use them for their personal Vaporizers.
If you do not replace the ohmmeter, your RDA may be damaged if it comes into contact with the elements in the tank. When you first place the batteries into the new coil, the resistance may be extremely low and it will take around 10 seconds to get to full resistance. If the RDA comes into contact with the old coil and/or the tank elements then the coils can be ruined and you will need to purchase a new coil and/or tank.
When replacing your Ohm’s, it is important to always read the manufacturer’s instructions for your particular paper. Many people have reported having problems with their batteries not being able to support the wattage they are purchasing for their Vaporizers. Replacing your Ohm’s when you are purchasing your e Liquid is recommended to give you maximum performance and longevity from your unit. If you are a serious vaper then you will probably be investing in more than one coil and using them for different applications.
