How often should you change your coils?

How Often Should You Change Your Coils?

As a vaper, you’ll need to know the importance of looking after your equipment and be familiar with the various parts of your kit that will require regular cleaning and maintenance. This need to replace elements can be a complete culture shock for former smokers who are used to only needing a lighter. Replacing the coils is a regular part of e-cig maintenance, read on to find out how often should you do this.

The coil sits inside your e-cigarette’s tank and it is arguably one of the most important components. Coils are made of resistance wire that heats up when an electrical current is passed through it. The heat is then used to vaporize e-liquid, which is held in place by the surrounding wick.

Some experienced vapers make their own coils but most manufacturers produce replacement coils for their tanks. The good news if you’re new to e-cig maintenance is that it’s incredibly easy to change a coil. When your tank is empty, simply remove the top or bottom and the coil will screw out. A new one can then be twisted into place.

Whenever you’re replacing a coil, the tank should also be thoroughly cleaned. If you’re changing the coil because you’ve noticed a gurgling noise, then you will need to clean the battery connector as well. Gurgling can be a sign that e-liquid has made its way onto the battery connectors.

Coils are only temporary and after a certain amount of time the resistance wire will begin to fail. This will taint the flavor of your vapor. This is not an overnight process as coils fail gradually. As it begins to fail you will notice it either makes a gurgling noise, is lacking flavor or vapor production is low. Finally, the coil will stop producing vapor all together. Ideally your coil should be replaced before you start noticing any of these symptoms.

How Long Should a Coil Last

There is no set amount of time that you should leave between coil changes as the exact routine you need to adopt will depend on your setup, how you vape and the e-liquid you use. However, most vapers change coils every one to four weeks. If you start changing coils on a fortnightly basis, you will notice the taste of your vapor improving. Use this as a baseline to help you determine a more accurate schedule for changing coils.

Your habits are the most important factor when it comes to deciding how often your e-cigarette’s coil should be changed. If you are a heavy user, you may find weekly coil changes are not enough. If you’re a casual user who enjoys the odd toke now and again, then expect your coils to last even longer than four weeks.

E-liquid is soaked up by the wicking material surrounding the coil. If you’re a cloud chaser and regularly use 100% VG e-liquid, you’ll have to change coils much more often. The thicker nature of vegetable glycerin means that it takes more power to vaporize. Putting more power into the coil means that it will begin to burn out much quicker, demanding a more intensive replacement schedule.

The same can be said for those using a variable voltage or temperature controlled mod. Higher temperatures and voltages will naturally degrade the resistance wire quicker, meaning the coil needs to be changed more often. The more you use your setup the more adept you will become at spotting the warning signs of a failing coil.

Changing Coils Too Often?

You can never change a coil too often but if you’re having to do it every two to three days it becomes an annoying hassle. If this is the case, consider changing your tank. There are only two types of connection between a battery and tank – 808 and 510. When selecting a new tank there are a few other things you need to be aware of. It should be an appropriate resistance for your e-cigarette for example, so that it doesn’t continue to burn out. You may also want to consider building your own coils in future. This will allow you to create coils that meet your needs exactly. Take a look at our handy guide to find out how.

What is E-Juice?

E-juice, also known as e-liquid or vaping liquid, is the liquid that’s placed in the vaping device and subsequently atomized into vapor. When you go to buy e-juice, you’ll notice it contains a mix of several ingredients. These typically include vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), some type of flavoring, and nicotine.

VG and PG form the base of the e-liquid. VG is a component used in food and personal care products; its role in e-liquid is to create a thick, dense vapor. PG is another popular solvent used in a variety of everyday items. It carries the e-liquid flavor, provides the “throat hit,” and enhances the vaping liquid’s ability to soak into wicks or cartomizer materials.

Nicotine is an optional ingredient, often available in different levels. E-juice also contains some type of flavoring.

Black Note leads the pack of tobacco vaping liquid by using only natural flavoring – extract from real tobacco leaves to produce real tobacco taste. When you go to buy e-juice from other companies, you may find any number of chemicals used to create synthetic flavors that include fake strawberry, manufactured vanilla, and even man-made tobacco flavors.

If your aim when you buy e-liquid is to experience the subtle nuances, genuine flair and authentic taste of real tobacco, then you’ll be on the mark if you buy e-juice from the Black Note lineup.

Best E-Juice

When you’re going to buy e-liquid, it’s only natural you’ll want the best e-liquid. But what, exactly, does it “best e-juice” mean? We’ll tell you.

For starters, you’ll want an e-juice that doesn’t contain all kinds of strange chemicals and concoctions that you can’t even pronounce. True, even the best e-liquid will contain vegetable glycerin (VG) and proplene glycol (PG), which serve as the base of e-juice, but you don’t necessarily need a host of other chemical compounds.

The best e-juice will stick to natural ingredients, like real tobacco extract, rather than rely on synthetic flavorings, colorings and other additives. Diacetyl is one of those synthetic ingredients that has gotten a pretty bad rap, although its use is not all that uncommon for producing sweet e juice flavors.

Definitely read the ingredient list before you buy e-juice to ensure you recognize what’s on it. Better yet, see if the e-juice company offers a lab report to confirm what’s actually inside the e-liquid.

In addition to having as few chemical ingredients as possible, the best e-juice will have an amazing taste. For those who enjoy authenticity over imitation, the most amazing taste is the most natural taste, especially when it comes to tobacco. Since Black Note uses real extract from tobacco leaves, we not only avoid all those weird chemical flavorings, but we also produce the most authentic experience: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like tobacco.

Vape Juice Ingredients

Vape juice ingredients can be pretty straightforward – or not. At the very least, most vape juice contains propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and some type of flavoring. Nicotine has largely become an optional ingredient that can be included at varying levels or left out altogether.

Vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) are usually the two main ingredients that make up the base of most vape juice.

VG is a plant-based substance with the ability to produce a dense, thick vapor. PG is an additive found in many food items and certain medicines. It carries the flavoring, provides the “throat hit” and enhances the vape juice’s ability to soak into the wicking materials.

Nicotine levels can vary, as can ingredients that make up the flavorings. The components that make up vape juice flavoring are where ingredients can get rather complicated.

Vape juice that relies on artificial flavorings can contain any number of extraneous chemicals and other additives, whatever it takes to recreate the flavor the ecig juice is going for.

Black Note uses only natural flavorings: extract from real tobacco leaves. That keeps our ingredient list incredibly simple, backed by a lab report to prove it. You won’t find any strange chemical concoctions used to produce our tobacco flavor, just real tobacco extract that delivers a real tobacco experience.

What is the Best Flavor for Ecig Juice?

From strawberry shortcake to banana rum, ecig juice comes in tons of flavors. While folks can debate and discuss all the fruity, sweet or food-like flavors all day long, the best flavor for e-cig liquid is straight-up tobacco.

Why? Vaping was originally created as an alternative for traditional cigarettes, mainly for those who enjoy the taste of tobacco. And when you can find an e-cig liquid that is able to recreate tobacco’s full-bodied yet delicate flavor notes and nuances, but without the harmful chemicals found in cigarettes, then you’ve found the best ecig juice.

Recreating tobacco’s complex flavor isn’t easy, especially when it’s attempted with artificial ingredients. That’s why Black Note sticks to the real thing, extracting the essence of real tobacco leaves to flavor our vaping liquid. Not only does this avoid the harmful chemicals in cigarettes, but it also eliminates the flavoring chemicals found in many ecig juices. The end result is real tobacco taste, an authentic tobacco experience and the best flavor for ecig juice you can find.

Notice also we said the best e-cig flavor was straight-up tobacco, not plain old tobacco. Black Note’s real tobacco vaping liquid happens to come in a variety of different blends, from the light and airy to the peppery and robust. Not all tobacco is created equal, and different blends capture the specialized subtleties that make each tobacco unique.

Best Sweet Tobacco E-Juice

When it comes to sweet tobacco e-juice, your options can be broken down into two categories.

The first category contains tobacco e-juice that overlays the tobacco flavor with artificial chocolate, caramel, vanilla, fruity or other dessert-like flavorings. We wouldn’t classify any such flavors as the best tobacco e liquid, simply because they typically use chemicals and other artificial ingredients to create the tobacco taste, the sweet taste, or both.

The second category of sweet tobacco e-juice is where you’ll find the best tobacco e-liquid, sweet or otherwise. This category contains vaping liquid created using only natural flavorings, which is exactly where Black Note fits in. Instead of concocting flavors using synthetic ingredients, Black Note uses an extensive extraction process that slowly and deliberately extracts the tobacco essence from real tobacco leaves.

The result is the best tobacco e-juice: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. And if you’re going for the best sweet tobacco e liquid, we have a few tobacco blends that offer varying levels of sweetness.

Prelude is our sweetest tobacco e-liquid, containing golden Virginia tobacco. Made from fire-cured dark Virginia tobacco, Sonata is our Cavendish blend with a mildly sweet and nutty flavor. Solo is our menthol blend, giving you a semi-sweet minty taste created from natural menthol crystals extract from dried mint leaves.

For the best tobacco e-liquid that’s naturally sweet and remarkably delicious, Black Note is at your service.
