When Should I Replace My Atomizer Coil?

If you’re not familiar with the world of vaping, the term “atomizer coil” can sound like a part you might need when building a spaceship. In vaping parlance, an atomizer coil (also referred to as a “replacement coil” or “atomizer head”) is the component inside of an electronic cigarette that is responsible for heating the e-liquid and turning it into a vapor to provide a simulated smoking experience. Along with e-liquid, atomizer coils are an element of the e-cigarette that requires regular replacement in order to keep everything working correctly.

Although every vaping enthusiast knows the importance of regularly changing out their atomizer coils, there is a wide spectrum of opinions regarding how frequent these replacements should be. One of the reasons for the uncertainty is that there are several different factors that can contribute to the wear and tear of an atomizer coil, and these factors can vary from one coil to the next, making it difficult to nail down any “universal replacement schedule”. The good news is that there are certain signs you can look out for to tell you when it may be time to replace your atomizer coil.

One of the first tell-tale signs that your atomizer coil is wearing out (or has already worn out) is reduced or poor vapor production. If you’re simply not getting as much electronic cigarette vapor as you normally do when you take a puff, you can be reasonably certain that your coil is wearing down. Most vapers know that when you first pop in a new atomizer coil, you will get some pretty thick, rich vapor clouds. After a few days or up to a week of regular use, the clouds can become smaller. This gradual reduction in vapor cloud fullness is a good indicator that the “time is nigh” for a new atomizer head.

Another common sign is when e-liquid begins to leak into your mouth when taking a drag. The whole point of vaping is to still be able to enjoy a smoking experience, without all of the harmful chemicals. If you’re taking drags on your e-cig and you notice that you’re getting a little e-liquid along with the vapor, this could mean that your atomizer coil is failing, because it’s not producing enough heat to adequately warm and vaporize all of the e-juice. Sometimes this leakage can be accompanied by a gurgling or bubbly sound, which means that your atomizer head has flooded. If you don’t replace your atomizer coil at this point, your e-cigarette will eventually produce zero vapor whatsoever.

In light of the variability of the above-mentioned signs, it can be difficult to come up with a definitive replacement schedule. Generally speaking, the heavier you vape, the more frequently you will need to replace your atomizer coil. For example, a heavy, almost non-stop vaper will need to replace their coil every five to seven days. For a moderate vaper (e.g., 4 or 5 times a day), a coil will typically last between 1 to 2 weeks. Light vapers (e.g., 1 to 3 times a day) can get away with replacing their coil about once every three weeks or so. Again, this is simply a general guide; the ultimate indicator should be whether or not you are experiencing any of the signs listed above.
