What are vape coils?
A fundamental component of your e-cigarette vaping experience, a vape coil is the part inside the clearomiser or atomiser that heats up the flavour, or e-liquid, and turns it into vapour.
There are many different pre-made vape coil types that are made from ceramic, stainless steel, nickel or titanium. This in turn will have different effects on the production of flavour and vapour. At VapeKing, we stock a range of replacement vape coils to suit your device.
What is vape atomiser?
When shopping for vape coils, you’ll often hear the term ‘vape atomiser’. This is the part of your vape device that does all the hard work, turning e-liquid into vapour. The atomiser is attached to the battery post, which gives it power. Vape atomisers come in all different shapes and sizes, and choosing the wrong one can significantly decrease the performance of your vape.
The atomiser gets to work as soon as you hit the firing button. The coil heats up, giving you a near-instant burst of vapour. Atomisers are measured in Ohms, which determine the resistance of the coil inside. A lower Ohm means that the coil has less resistance and will heat up faster, whereas a higher Ohm means the coil will heat up slower.
The best vape atomiser depends on your vaping preferences. Beginners can purchase pre-packaged atomisers with multiple resistance ratings to give you a range of experiences. As you become more comfortable with vaping, you may want to personalise your vaping experience with a rebuildable atomiser. If you have any questions about atomisers, get in touch with our friendly team.
How to choose the perfect vape coil
Vape coils aren’t universal, so it’s important to choose one that’s compatible with your device. When selecting a vape coil, look out for the following:
- Brand - Manufacturers normally produce vape coils that are compatible with their devices. When buying a new coil, look for one that’s the same brand as your device.
- Resistance - The wattage of vape devices varies, so look for a coil with a resistance level within your device’s wattage range.
- Recommendations - At VapeKing, all our products are tried and tested, so we know the right vape coils to recommend. Ask us for advice on what the best vape coil is for you.
When to replace your vape coils
Even the most high-end vape coils will slowly break down over time. When this happens, you’ll notice that your vapour will have a burnt or diminished taste to it. As soon as the flavour becomes less appealing, it will be time to replace your vape coil.
If you’re a heavy vaper, you may need to change your coils weekly. While this might sound excessive, you don’t want to compromise on the taste and production of your flavour. For moderate vapers, you can get away with replacing your coils once a fortnight. Infrequent users, such as light vapers, may only need to change their coils every 3-4 weeks.
When you need replacement coils for your clearomisers, shop online at VapeKing for great quality products at reasonable prices.
Troubleshooting your vape coils
Many common issues with vape coils can be resolved with the following solutions:
- Device won’t fire after replacing coils - Check that your vape coil is correctly installed. Try emptying the tank and unscrewing the coil, then screwing it back in evenly.
- Vape juice tastes burnt - If you’ve installed a new coil and the vape juice tastes burnt, then it’s likely you’ve taken a dry pull and burnt the coil. While the coil will still work, the taste of your vape juice will be affected until the coil is replaced.
- Atomiser leaking - This generally means that your vape coil hasn’t been properly installed. Unscrew then re-screw the coil evenly.

What is a vape coil?
A vape coil is a crucial part of the atomiser as it heats up the e-liquid and turns it into vapour. The vape coil is wrapped in wicking material that absorbs the juice, and the battery works to power the coil and heat it up.
What are the best vape coils?
The best vape coil depends on the type of vape you have, your personal preferences and how often you vape. Some vape coils can bring out the flavour of the e-liquid, while others can aid in producing more vapour. You should choose a vape coil that doesn’t cause a burning taste from your e-liquid. If you need assistance in finding the right vape coil for your device, our expert team is always available to answer any queries.
Why are my vape coils burning?
If you don’t properly prime your coil before its first use, then the coil can dry out if not enough juice has been absorbed. Always ensure that you have plenty of juice in the tank, and that your coil is clean.
How to clean vape coils?
Cleaning your coil can prolong its usage and eliminate any foul tastes. Soak the coil in vinegar or vodka for a few hours, then use water to rinse thoroughly. Rinse again using distilled water, then use a hair dryer to blow on the open side of the coil - this will help clear out juice residue from the wicking holes. Allow the coil to dry completely before using it.
How to prime a vape coil?
To prime your new vape coil before use, put one or two drops of e-liquid into the side holes, and allow it to soak for at least 10 minutes. Close up all of the air holes and, with the device turned off, take a few ‘dry hits’ to allow more e-liquid into the coil. When you’re ready to vape, it’s a good idea to take a few hits with a lower wattage before turning it up - this will help your coil last longer.
How to change a vape coil?
To change your vape coil, start by unscrewing the atomiser head from the mod, then unscrew the tank. Remove any remaining e-liquid, then unscrew the used coil from the atomiser stem. Fit the new coil and prime it before attaching it to the tank. Some atomiser heads may be different, so it’s important to check the instructions for your device.
How long do vape coils last?
The lifespan of a vape coil depends on how often you vape, and can vary depending on what type of e-liquid you use. Typically, you can expect a new vape coil to last between 1-2 weeks for an average user.
How much does a vape coil cost?
Vape coils vary in price, depending on the type of coil and your device. You can expect to pay anywhere between a few dollars for a coil, up to around $20. Some starter kits come with coils, and it’s easy to find replacements for most major brands.
Is it bad to vape old coils?
You shouldn’t vape old coils, as the dried e-liquid particulars and other build up can not only burn the coil and render it useless, but can cause nausea or illness. If you vape regularly, you should change your coil every 1-2 weeks to maintain freshness and avoid an unpleasant taste.
