Vape coils are an essential part of your vaping setup. The coil heats the vape juice to extract flavour and create vapour. The coils are simple in construction, only consisting of a coil wrapped in a wicking material. The coil draws power from the battery to produce heat and vaporise the vape liquid or nicotine salts.
Vape coils come in varying resistances which are measured in ohms. Depending on the vaporiser brand and your vaping preference, the resistance of the ideal vape coil can differ. You can also customise your vaping experience by selecting coils with varying resistance. Typically, vape coils with a higher resistance produce a cooler vape and less vapour production.
At LiteJoy, we have an expansive range of vape coils designed for all types of vaporisers that will suit your vaping preferences.
Types of Vape Coils
Besides the varying resistance, there are also different types of vape coils identified by the materials used to make the coils. Some of the popular types include:
Stainless steel coils
Stainless steel coils come in different grades of stainless steel. The most common is grade 430 because of its durability and magnetic properties. Coils made from this material are versatile and ideal for use in a broad temperature range. With proper care, stainless steel coils can last for a long time.
Kanthal is one of the most popular materials used in making pre-made and homemade coils. The material is an alloy of chromium, iron and aluminium. It is preferred because of its fast ramp-up times, and it produces thick clouds of vapour when used in wattage mode. Kanthal is excellent for coil builders because it holds its shape nicely and is easy to work with.
There are several types of nickel coils in the market, and they can be confusing. The most recommended are the coils made from Ni200. Coils made from this material work best in temperature control mods because they have low resistance. These coils have a long list of benefits, but they don't work well with variable voltage or variable wattage kits. They should also never be dry-fired.
If you're looking for a premium vaping experience, titanium coils are the best. But they also come with a price tag to match. The material is soft and malleable, and the coils deliver a crisp and clean taste when vaping. These unique benefits make this type of coil highly sort after despite the higher price. However, vapers are cautioned against using titanium coils because there are some safety concerns when using titanium coils.
Best known for their smooth draw because of their porous nature, ceramic coils are the least used. They have excellent flavour, can tolerate high wattage and have a longer lifespan.
How to Choose the Perfect Vape Coil
If you don't already have your own coil-making kit or the skills to build your own vape coils, there are numerous pre-made coils available at LiteJoy. All you have to do is pick the right one. With so many options to pick from, it might not be the easiest task. But, there are a few steps that can help you make the right decision.
Go for the same brand
If you’re uncertain of the coil that will work best with your vaporiser, going for the same brand is the safest bet. Manufacturers will always produce a line of vape coils that are compatible with specific devices. Simply look for replacement coils of the same brand as the device you have.
Each vape coil range will often have several resistance level choices to appeal to as many vapers as possible. If you're not conversant with the coil's resistance, you can check the ideal wattage range for the coil. Most manufacturers will indicate this on the packaging. You can compare this wattage to the wattage you prefer vaping at to get the best coil.
At LiteJoy, we make it easier for you to find the perfect replacement coil using our comprehensive search feature. You can find the same coil you're using by typing in the name of the coil. This is the easiest and the fastest way to shop for new replacement vape coils.
