Coil

[Pronunciation:/kɔɪl/]


A coil is a piece of resistance wire normally wrapped in a cylindrical fashion around or within an absorbent material which will carry the e-liquid to be vaporized. When a current is passed along resistance wire, some of the energy passing through is converted into heat energy and the resulting heat is used to turn the liquid in the cotton or other wicking material into vapor to be inhaled.

While many people use pre-made disposable coils, a large group of people also wrap and build their own coils for use in rebuildable tanks and drippers. Like any other hobby involving electrical knowledge, this should only be attempted by people who have the skill sets required and take the necessary safety precautions.

Currently located in Sydney, Australia, I have been vaping since 2009 and became active in the e-cigarette industry in late 2015. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of visiting over 700 shops in 6 countries.
