Along with a safer alternative to smoking, vaping allows consumers to save money. When you smoke cannabis, the majority of the herb is burned. Vaping is quite cheaper than smoking, and you can also make it more affordable. Vape juice and atomizer are the major expenses associated with vaporizing. In this post, we are going to discuss some quick tips to extend the life of an atomizer vape head.
How Long an Atomizer Head Last?
Well, it depends on various factors. Many inexperienced consumers mess up their atomizers by taking dry hits, chain vaping, etc.
Usually atomizer heads last for about 14 days. Again, it depends on the consumer. Some are able to use it for up to a month while others need to replace it within a few days.
So, how to recognize a dead atomizer? If it’s giving an awful burnt taste, it means your atomizer is dead. Another sign is the muted flavor. Vaporization delivers delicious, crisp flavor, but when the atomizer is dead, it directly affects the taste. Leaks in the vape tank show that the coil isn’t screwed properly. If readjusting doesn’t help, chances are the coil is damaged, and it’s time to get a new atomizer.
Making Your Atomizer Last Longer
Prime Your Coil
This is important. When screwing a new coil, it’s important to give juice to saturate the wick before you turn on the device. Wait for a few minutes before you start vaping, this will surely make a significant difference.
When the wicking material of the atomizer isn’t properly soaked up with the juice, it will give you a horrible taste of burning the cotton. Also, it will affect the life of the atomizer head.
Turn Down The Power
If the temperature of the atomizer is too high, chances are more that it will burn the wick quickly. In other words, it means vaping juices quickly and exposing the wick to a hot coil.
So, do the power setting carefully. Remember, the power removes the juice from the wick and also the ability of the wick to soak up the juice. For thick juices, lower power settings may cause problems.
Many coils come with recommended power settings. So, read the guidelines carefully to reduce the risks of coil damage.
Avoid Chain Vaping
Chain vaping involves taking long puffs often. No doubt it increases the process of vapor production, but can also damage the coil. This is due to the fact that there’s not enough time for the wick to soak up completely.
What’s the solution? Turn off the vaping device for some time. Also, you can take shallower puffs; this will put less strain on the atomizer vape head, thus extending its life.
Maintain The Juice Level
Clearly, it’s not good to use your vape when the levels of juices are low. Doing so can lead to bad taste and dry hits along with causing damage to the coil. So, always ensure that the juice tank is half full. Remember, if the level is less than quarter full, it means the juice won’t be able to reach the wick, thus burning the coil
