Cleaning is the easiest way to extend the life of your coils and provide the best vaping experience. Your coils will naturally gunk up over time and some e-liquids are particularly hard on coils and will leave behind a residue that can make your vape taste nasty or burnt. Make sure you’re checking your coils regularly and clean them as necessary.
It’s a pretty quick and easy process so regular cleaning shouldn’t be a problem. You want to start with removing the wicks from your coils. Once you’ve done that, just heat your coils lightly to start to burn off some of the residue. Once they’re hot, dip them in some warm water or run them under a tap making sure that you’re only wetting the coils and not the mod.
If my coils are particularly gunky, I’ll sometimes give them a gentle scrub with a toothbrush once they’re cool or lightly scrape them with a set of ceramic tipped tweezers. You’ll repeat this process two or three times depending on how dirty your coils are. Make sure that you haven’t introduced any hot spots in the process.
And that’s all there is to it. Give your atty a wipe (don’t forget the inside of the cap and drip tip) while you’re waiting for your coils to cool, rewick, juice up and you’re ready to go again.
