Prime your coils using Vape Fanaticz's guide

COMPLETE GUIDE TO PRIME YOUR COILS - AVOID PREMATURE BURNOUT

Make sure your coil is properly primed before you first fire the device. Follow these simple instructions to do it easily:

  • Drip lots of e-liquids on the top of the coil, allowing the cotton inside to soak it up between drips till you see the white cotton through the holes at the side becoming wet. Do it generously; if you notice any excess once the cotton is completely saturated, then flick the coil to let the extra liquid drain out.
  • Try to refit your coil and fill the tank with e-juice.
  • Let it sit for a minute to soak
  • Try some 'Primer Puffs' by pulling on the atomizer as if you were vaping but without firing the device
  • Turn your device power setting to low, if your device has adjustable power. And then fire it
  • Try turning the power higher at intervals until you get the preferred power level
  • Congratulations, you have successfully primed your coil and its ready to use now!

Please remember; vape juice with a high concentration of sweetener (sucrose) will drastically shorten coil life. So be careful!

 

AN IMPORTANT TIP

If you see your device 'spitting' and a general gurgling sound when firing it, then it’s a probability that your coil has become flooded. Usually, this problem arises when the device is kept idle for a longer period of time or if the e-liquid is still inside the coil from the priming process.

And if this happens, simply try to remove the mouthpiece if you can, then flick the device down towards the floor (better to do it outside!). Doing so will allow the excess liquid to vacate the coil, and when you fire the device afterwards, that gurgling sound should have gone for sure.

 

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO ADEQUATELY PRIME THE COIL

The coil is the most important part of your vaping device. These heating elements help in turning your vape-liquid into vapor. Normally, with a manufactured coil, you will find a heating element always encased in cotton. This cotton is what holds the liquid, enabling it to be vaporized as soon as you apply power from your battery.

 

WHEN YOU SHOULD REPLACE THE COILS

The coils required replacing periodically. That time depends on the number of factors such as how often you use your device, power settings, vape-liquid you are using, and other variables. All these things affect the lifespan of your coil. We suggest you to replace your coil, whenever you notice a burnt or poor taste from your atomizer.
