There are two things that you’ll need to buy constantly as a vaper. The first thing is e-liquid, and the second thing is replacement coils. It’s a good thing that you can find them both right here at Simply ELiquid! On this page, you’ll find replacement coils for tanks from all the most popular manufacturers including SMOK, Freemax, Voopoo, Aspire and more.
What Are Vape Coils?
A vape coil is the vapour-producing component in a vape tank. The term “coil” refers to the heating wire within the coil assembly, which is traditionally coil shaped, although mesh strips are becoming increasingly popular as alternatives to the coil-shaped wires. In addition to the heating surface, a vape coil also has a wick that draws e-liquid in from the reservoir of the tank. The wick in a vape coil is usually made from cotton, but some manufacturers of vaping products use alternative wick materials such as flax fibre, hemp or ceramic for improved heat resistance. Along with the heating surface and the wick, the final component of a vape coil is the enclosure itself. The enclosure is what connects the coil to the base of the tank, and it’s also responsible for managing airflow – and the flow of e-liquid – within the tank. A good vape coil allows air to enter the tank and allows vapour to leave, and it should do so without letting e-liquid leak out of the tank. That’s no small engineering feat! .
Why Buy Vape Coils From Simply ELiquid?
Simply ELiquid is the best UK source for vape coils for two reasons, and the first reason is that we love bulk orders! If your order totals more than £30, we’ll cover the shipping charge – so add a few boxes of coils to your next order of vape juice and save some serious money. The second reason why you should buy vape coils from Simply ELiquid is because we monitor our supply chain more tightly than any other vape shop. Counterfeit products are extremely common in the vaping industry, and if you’re ever had a coil that didn’t quite fit your tank, was prone to leaking or produced a strange flavour, you know how bad your vaping experience can be when you’re not using authentic hardware. We obtain our coils only from the original manufacturers and from authorised distributors. We guarantee that every vape coil we sell is authentic.
Choosing the Right Atomizer Coil Resistance
Some vape tanks have several different coils available to suit the individual tastes of different types of users. One type of coil may have a lower electrical resistance and several heating wires to produce extremely large vapour clouds, for instance, while another type may have fewer heating wires to produce a cooler and more refined vaping experience. It’s hard to know which type of coil for a particular tank will be your favourite until you’ve tried them all. In general, though, you can use a coil’s resistance as a guide to get an idea of the type of experience you’ll have with that coil. Generally, the lower the coil’s resistance is, the larger and warmer that coil’s vapour clouds will be. Lower-resistance coils also usually operate most efficiently at higher wattages. Every vape coil has a specific operational wattage range recommended by the manufacturer, so you should confirm that your vaping device operates within a given coil’s recommended range before buying that coil.
What Are Mesh Coils?
A mesh coil is a vape coil that uses a strip of metal mesh as its heating surface. The mesh looks a bit like a window screen, and it replaces the traditional coiled resistance wire that’s usually used for heating. Compared to a coil using resistance wire, a mesh coil has similar surface area with a much lower mass, which means that a mesh coil can produce large clouds without requiring a great deal of power. The higher a coil’s mass, the higher the operational wattage must be for the coil to work efficiently. In addition to the lower power requirements, the low mass of a mesh coil allows it to heat up almost instantly when you press your device’s fire button. Mesh coils usually don’t pop during operation like traditional coils can, and they also have excellent flavour characteristics. If your vape tank has a mesh coil available, you should definitely try it.
What Are MTL and DTL Coils?
Some vaping devices – particularly pod systems with replaceable coils – have coil options available for both the mouth-to-lung and direct-to-lung inhaling styles. That allows a vaping device to adjust itself for any type of vaper – or to suit a user’s changing preferences – with a simple coil change. To have a good mouth-to-lung vaping experience, you don’t just need a coil that produces smaller vapour clouds and operates at a cooler temperature; the coil also needs to have tight airflow characteristics. Therefore, a mouth-to-lung coil will often have a smaller airflow opening to deliver the restrictive airflow that MTL vapers prefer.
Why Are Some Vape Coils More Expensive Than Others?
One of the things you’ve probably noticed when shopping for vape coils is that the coils can differ greatly in price. In addition to the price difference, some packages include five coils, while others include as few as two coils. Obviously, that means the price per coil can vary by quite a lot. The price of a vape coil isn’t necessarily a reflection of how “good” the coil is because only your individual needs and preferences can determine what the best type of coil is for you. However, it is true that the more expensive coils are generally capable of producing larger vapour clouds. The primary reason why some coils cost more than others is because the more expensive coils are simply more elaborate. If a vape coil is an engineering feat, then a coil designed for cloud chasing must be doubly so. A high-end vape coil is often large because it has multiple heating wires or mesh strips working in tandem. All of that heat requires a large wick capable of holding a lot of e-liquid, so the more expensive vape coils are often much bigger than the less expensive ones. If you want a vape coil that’s capable of producing enormous clouds, it’s probably going to cost a bit more than a basic coil.
