Arguably the most important part of a vape is the coil—also known as an atomiser. This is the piece inside your vape pod or tank that heats and vaporises your E-Liquid.
A coil contains two main components: the metal heating element and the wicking material. The heating material, which is either wire or mesh, is where the electrical current passes through the vape to heat the liquid. The wick, which you can see inside the small holes around the outside of a coil, is where the E-Liquid is absorbed.
Coils have a natural lifespan and will need to be replaced periodically. Some pod vapes use pods with built-in coils, and for these devices, you'll simply need to replace the entire pod once the coil is finished.
Coils can be very confusing, especially for new vapers, given their different types and resistances. Fear not: we're here to help!
