    Coil change/dry burn

    Hello all
    Thought I'd ask how often you all had to dry burn or change coils on your RBA/RTA/RDA?
    The reason I am asking is that I feel I am doing this excessively.. I won't say how often I have to re-wick and dry burn
    But I'll say the number is between 0 and 2 times a week
    But seriously, once a week to dry burn all the Kurd off and fresh in the wick is too much or not?
    I have noticed a difference in diy and pre nic'd juice regardless of pg/vg ratio.
    Muchly appreciate your time and effort in your replies
    Thanks
    Justin

    Some juices requires a dry burn every night! Darker/steeped juices will increase the frequency.

    A couple of other things also influence this: running the coil drier than normal will increase the frequency, as will a contact coil over spaced coil.

    I always dry burn and change wick in the cyclone on the reo every 2nd battery change and whenever I taste a difference in the gayfun(some juice it's every tank).The best thing is my coils are all over 2months old and changing cotton is a 2 minute job

    Depends. If it's something that gunks coils, quite often (after 1-2 evening's use) for an RDA. Maybe after 3-4 evenings for everything else? I change if it's either tasting weird or I can see the coil is dark. Or if I want to switch flavours. I usually do a quick rinse out as well. So compared with me, I think you're not doing it excessively As for changing coils, I tend to run them for about 2 weeks. I rebuild if a dry burn fails to really clean the coil.
    For a tank, just trying to work this out myself as I'm only just starting to use them regularly.

    I'm just starting to use spaced coils.
    I find I get the same Vaping experience if I alter the juice flow, air flow and wick density as the micro coil builds
    I'm assuming that it uses less battery?
    Certainly is easier to build having them spaced out
    But cheers of the info, it helps heaps.

    I'm a heavy vaper at home, plus I have a weakness for sweet/bakery flavours, especially after dinner I definitely appreciate flavour over loads of clouds!

    All good advice here JWH. I dry burn every rewick which is every second tank on dark narky juices. I like the fresh taste.
