Coil heads for the e-cigarette
The coil head is the heating element in the clearomizer or tank of an electronic cigarette. It transports the liquid to the heating wire by capillary action, where the liquid is then evaporated.
The coil head is the only consumable item in the e-cigarette that needs to be changed regularly. On average, a coil has a useful life of 2 to 3 weeks, depending on the material, the liquids used, the frequency of use and the operating performance. A clear sign that the atomizer head should be changed is when hardly any steam is produced despite sufficient liquid level, a charred taste is noticeable or the e-cigarette bubbles or leaks despite slow puffs.
After changing the coil head, you should let the e-cigarette rest for a few minutes so that the vaporizer can soak up the liquid. If you put the new coil into operation too early and dry, the cotton wool inside can burn, which often makes the coil heads unusable.
There are often different types of coil heads available for the same clearomizer, which offer different vaping experiences depending on the type. In general, it can be divided into sub-ohm coils (low ohm value, airy draw resistance, large clouds) and MTL coils (higher ohm value, narrow draw resistance, economical liquid consumption).
n addition, various materials such as Kanthal, nichrome (Ni80) or SS316 are used, which enable faster heating and the use of steam modes such as temperature control etc. Mesh coil heads offer a larger heating surface and an excellent reproduction of the aromas.
