Simple steps to priming a coil

If you're new to vaping, understanding the importance of priming a coil after installing a new one is crucial. Properly priming your coil prevents dry hits and premature burning, ensuring a smoother vaping experience.

The process of priming a coil is straightforward and becomes second nature once you've done it a few times.

But when should you change your coil? For seasoned vapers, it becomes apparent when a coil needs changing. However, beginners may mistake decreased vapour production or flavour quality for e-cig faults or juice issues. A burnt taste when vaping is a sure sign it's time to replace your coil.

Priming a coil involves saturating it with e-liquid before use. This step is essential to prevent dry hits and extend coil life, while also maximising flavour.

Here's a simple guide to priming your coil:

Step 1: Add a drop of e-liquid to each hole of the coil to initiate the wicking process. Ensure the coil is fully saturated but avoid flooding, which can lead to leaks.

Step 2: Insert the primed coil into your e-cig, fill the tank with your chosen e-liquid, and wait 5-10 minutes for full saturation. The longer, the better, but 10 minutes is usually sufficient.

Step 3: Inhale through the e-cig without powering it to draw liquid through the coil.

Step 4: If you have a variable wattage device, start at a lower wattage setting than usual. Gradually increase the power as you take a few puffs to ensure optimal flavour.

By following these steps, you'll effectively prime your coil for an enjoyable vaping experience. If you encounter any difficulties or need advice on priming your coil, don't hesitate to reach out to us for assistance. Our team at Make My Vape is always ready to help!
