Coil building is an essential part of the vaping experience that has a steep learning curve. You’ll find that not many people know how to do it. In fact, more than three quarters of vapers simply buy new coils when they need to. Building your own is one of the most rewarding parts of vaping, however, since it gives you ultimate control over the whole process of vaping. Combining mechanical prowess and technical know-how is a must if you want to know how to coil build.
To start, you’ll need a few cheap and easy to find items:
- -A pair of miniature scissors similar to ones you see in hospitals is necessary.
- -Tweezers, a screwdriver, and needle-nose pliers.
- -An ohm meter, which is a device you can pick up for relatively cheap at the local hardware store, is a critical component.
- -Kanthal wire and wicking material like cotton will round out the components you’ll use when building your device.
A plethora of articles on the specifics of doing this exist online, but knowing that, it's imperative to build your coils properly; being the first thing you should know. Because everything in a device runs on the basic principles of physics, overloading the capacity of your new coil build is a very real possibility.
If you build a coil with little resistance, there's a high chance that your battery will blow out. Therefore, that previously mentioned ohm meter is absolutely necessary through every step of the process. Test the resistance of your coil before you power it, and make sure to calculate the current draw of your coil. Double check all of your calculations before you use that coil for the first time.
With that said, once you've made your coil and have made sure it's safe to use, the experience is unbelievable. You'll produce clouds even bigger than before due to the freshness and tightness of the coil. Even better, with some experience you can easily tweak the coil to match your vaping style exactly, pairing your pulls with the exact amount of power to create a holy alliance of vapor. Once you get the hang of coil creation, it becomes quite fun. Of course, it's significantly cheaper than buying new coils every time it’s necessary. The individual parts come in such large quantities that you don't have to buy them very often, so your vaping sessions will be interrupted far less often than before.
All in all, building your own coils will enhance your vaping experience far more than you ever thought it would. Want to build like a pro? Get yourself a Coil Building Kit
