Rebuilding Coils

Rebuilding Coils

To new and inexperienced vapers, rebuilding coils may seem like more hassle than its worth. However, as you gain more experience, you will almost certainly want to try it. Building coils is a complex process that involves design, math, engineering and most importantly, patience. Before we explain how this process works let’s look at the benefits.

Benefits of Building

While it may take a bit of time to understand the process of rebuilding coils, it comes with some instant benefits. The coil and wick can be made to suit your personal vaping style or the e-liquid used, maximizing flavor and providing a more fulfilling vaping experience. Building coils also allows you to produce more vapor, making it the best option for persistent cloud chasers.

Safety

When rebuilding atomizers, you need to learn how to stay safe. Firstly, read our blog on Ohm’s law. Understanding this common law of electrics is key to ensuring you don’t overload your e-cigarette. Only build coils within the recommended limits of your battery. Low resistance coils will put a strain on the battery and can be dangerous if the battery can’t cope with demand.  Make sure you know the amp rating of the battery and whether your device is regulated.

What You Need

You’ll need several bits of equipment and types of materials to build a coil safely:

Equipment

  • Multimeter – capable of taking accurate resistance readings
  • Wire clippers
  • Micro screwdrivers
  • Needle nose pliers
  • A torch

Materials

The materials needed are dependent on personal preference. For instance, wicking material can be a variety of substances including ceramic, cotton, stainless steel, hemp or Ekowool.

  • Resistance wire – typically Kanthal or Nichrome but there are more options
  • Non-resistance wire – not all builds need this
  • Wicking material

The Wick

Selecting a wicking material very much depends on what you like, feel comfortable using and what works best in your device. Organic cotton is arguably the most popular wicking material. It is easy to use and to fit but is also simple to replace. If you can’t decide on a material, try a new one for each coil you build until you land on a favorite.

Resistance Wire

Resistance wire is the part of the vaporizer that heats up. There are a lot of choices for resistance wire but most importantly, you will need to select a material and a thickness. Kanthal is generally considered the best resistance wire because there is no adverse effect and it is highly resistant.

The gauge of wire refers to its thickness. Lower gauges are thicker wires and have a lower resistance. A higher gauge means a thinner with more resistance.

The secret to selecting the right gauge lies in the type of build you’re going for. For instance, sub-ohm coils require a higher gauged wire and less of it than a traditional atomizer.

Building

Firstly, you will need to take the atomizer apart, this is an easy task that you will have done before when cleaning your kit. Atomizers have two or three small posts on top. The coil connects these posts and completes the electric circuit. The coil offers resistance for the flow of electricity and this turns into heat energy, vaporizing the e-liquid. As well as the coil material, the way the coil is wrapped will also influence resistance. There are many different ways of wrapping a coil.

You will need something to wrap the coil around; a small screwdriver will usually do the job. Wrap it tightly around the screwdriver and try not to leave a gap between each wrap. The number of wraps is dependent upon the resistance you’re aiming for. Ohm’s law is vital at this stage. Without it you could build a coil with too much resistance which can be dangerous.

The coil then needs to be evenly placed on the two small posts on top of the atomizer. Place the wicking material in a position where it is in contact with the coil. This is entirely dependent on your atomizer; some will simply pass through the coil but some are more intricate.

Once you’ve built your coil, check the resistance using the multimeter.  If it is within safe operating range according to Ohm’s law, then simply rebuild the atomizer and you’re good to vape. The more coils you build the easier this process becomes and the more likely you are to build a coil suited to your exact needs.

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.

Best E-Liquid on the Market

Anyone looking for the best e-liquid on the market need look no further than Black Note. Black Note tobacco vaping liquid ranks as the best e-juice across the board in every category, starting with the taste.

Black Note’s main claim to fame is producing a tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. That because we use real tobacco extract, not chemicals, to create the best e-juice tobacco flavor. Using extract from real tobacco leaves retains tobacco’s nuances and flavor notes, giving you the most authentic and multi-faceted tobacco experience.

In addition to being the best e-juice for tobacco taste, Black Note also has the best e-liquid manufacturing process. We spent years researching and testing various production methods, and finally landed on one that we believe is absolutely perfect.

It starts with growing carefully selected tobacco seeds, followed by an equally precise of steps that include an extensive natural extraction process. Even our bottling and packaging is done with the utmost care, using recycled and recyclable packaging materials to ensure our products are as earth-friendly as they are vapor-friendly.

One more category where Black Note ranks as the best e-liquid is with the value. Every order comes with free domestic shipping, one-to-three day domestic shipping guarantee, and a 90-day, money-back satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not happy for any reason, or don’t agree we’re the best e-juice on the market, send it back on us and we’ll refund your money.

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.
