Care for Your MOD’s Coils

Care for Your MOD’s Coils

Over the last several years, modding has taken off tremendously. From the different types of MODs, to the tanks and e-liquids used to vape with, to even cloud competitions, modding has really become something else. With this vape trend and the increasing use of MODs in general, taking care of coils has become a huge must. 


You see, the single most important thing about vaping, aside from the above mentioned, is how you take care of your coils. Your coil is one of the major components of your MOD! Just as important as a filter is to a cigarette, a coil is to a MOD. Some of the purposes of a coil include heating the e-liquid you are vaping enabling it to produce the vapor you want, providing the desired taste you get from your device, and giving you the ability to vape a variety of flavors. That right there is just the beginning of why coils are very important! 

Coils can be large or small, dual or single, and made of stainless steel, titanium, or several other different metals depending on what you are vaping and the desired taste and amount of vapor you want. The most important factor in caring for your coil is knowing the type of metal your coil is made of and what is the maximum amount of heat your specific coil can withstand before burning out or reaching a toxic level. 

There are two types of MODs used for vaping and they are called ‘Mech MODs’ and ‘Box MODs’. Box MODs are mostly used for large clouds of vapor and Mech MODs are used for smaller clouds of vapor. Their coils are made of kanthal metal, which can always be used in the variable wattage mode setting. Stainless steel coils, however, can be used in either setting, the temperature control or variable wattage setting. Other coils made from either nickel or titanium must be used in the temperature control setting. These specific metals, if overheated, can burn out fast and release toxic gases and you don’t want to breathe that in! 

When purchasing a MOD with a temperature control setting, make sure you ask the retailer what kind of metal the coil is made of or you can simply remove the coil and read the wattage settings which should be printed on either the side of the coil, in the instructions, or somewhere on the packaging. That is specifically for temperature control MODs. MODs without a temperature control setting are by default under or at the maximum amount of heat they can withstand. 

It is also very important to make sure that you prep your coil before vaping. It is imperative to ensure that the cotton in your coil is damp before vaping. If you immediately began vaping without making sure your cotton is damp first, it could cause your cotton to burn, thus resulting in a burned taste. Always remember that most single coils are used for vaping liquids or small amounts of vapor and most dual coils are used for vaping other substances besides e-liquid or large amounts or vapor. Caring for your coil and knowing your coil's capabilities are what makes or breaks your modding experience! Always care for your coil and you will never regret your decision to become a vaper/modder while investing in this realm of the vaping space.
