What would cause burned coils and pods, and how to deal with them?

Everyone has at least one or two burnt coils or pods at some point. And since this happens so often, it's essential to know how long a vape usually lasts. All filter burns out at some point, but some can burn out faster than others, depending on how you use them. It lasts between two and three weeks, but sometimes it lasts longer. When the taste of your e-liquid changes or the amount of vapour you get starts to go down, it might be time to change that resistance.

What thing can you do to make your vapes last longer? Absolutely, Chain vaping and not priming are two of the most well-known ways to damage your experience.

Chain vaping

Chain vaping means taking puff after puff over and over again, as the name suggests. Doing that forces your wick to soak up more e-liquid to vaporize it. But each time you take a puff, you don't give the wick a chance to soak up more e-liquid. This means that the filter burns a drier and drier wick. To avoid chain vaping, wait about 30 seconds between hits. You are still getting nicotine, so whether you take 10 minor hits or 6 slightly bigger hits, you still get delicious vape flavours and enough nicotine to satisfy any craving.

Not priming

Priming your coil means you soak the wick and heating element in e-liquid to prepare them in Pod vape. So, when you turn on the device, the wick and heating element will only vaporize the e-liquid. Most tanks and atomizers with an open system have holes that let you add e-liquid. Put two or three drops of your e-liquid into those holes. Stop when the e-liquid starts to leak out. Let it sit for a few minutes after you have soaked the coils. From there, you should inhale the device WITHOUT firing it. This will pull the e-liquid onto the wick and toward the resistance and set up for the best first puff possible.
