Most vapers who have experience with different devices, make efforts to manage their devices as much as possible by themselves. Firstly, this is more cost-efficient, and secondly, they ensure the highest quality of materials because they buy those themselves. Vape coils are included in the list of what can be made with own hands, because coils are crucial for heating the vaping liquids. Good coils with high resistance provide more and thicker vapour and thus improve the vaping experience.
So, if you want to know more about your device and be able to manage it in a more efficient way, you may try to wind coils yourself. Use the short guide below.
How To Do It
What you will need:
- fibre 2 mm in diameter
- nichrome wire 0,2 mm in diameter
- needle of syringe
- nail scissors
The syringe needle should be heated till red, and then its tip has to be deformed to form a hook. This needle will be used to create the coil.
To balance the resistance, you have to limit the resistance on the parts you do not need, therefore, to increase resistance on the parts you do need. The simplest way to do this is to wind the piece of the wire on its tips and make the tips thicker, leaving the middle part thin. Heat the nichrome wire with the lighter. Make sure you have the resistance you want in this part of the wire.
After that, cut the piece of fibre. Wind your wire on the fibre directly, this will increase your chance to produce an even spiral. Put a syringe into a piece of fibre, making it fixed. After that, take your wire and wind it around the piece of fibre. Your coil is ready!
The Main Lifehack
The main lifehack considering coils for the vape is either go to a vape shop and ask the professionals to do that for you for a ridiculous sum of money, or just buy a package of ready made coils that will cost you not much more. However, by ordering service from professional you will save your time and effort, while by buying a box of coils you will use them for several months without racking your brains and be bonkers about all this winding stuff. So, you have to set the priorities for yourself – if you want to wind the coils skillfully, do that. If you want to enjoy your vaping – just buy yourself a box of coils.
