About cotton & wire

Building your own vape coils is a great option for advanced vapers, allowing you to save money on coils and enjoy phenomenal flavour and vapour production.

Coil wire lets you choose the material and gauge that best suits your needs, building a coil at the exact resistance you prefer and allowing you to personalise your vaping experience.

Once built the coils can last much longer than standard stock coil if maintained correctly, so you will only need to replace the cotton whenever it starts to taste burnt.

Vape cotton has been processed to remove any natural oils and impurities leaving completely flavourless, quality cotton which is the perfect base for your favourite e-liquid.

DIY coil building is only recommended for advanced vapers with extensive vaping knowledge and a good working understanding of ohms law.

Cotton & wire FAQ

Are all coil wires the same?

No, there is a huge variety of different wire options available, with different metals, gauges, and wire shapes to choose from.

We recommend you do lots of research before getting started with DIY coil building, this will also help give you an idea of which wires and what type of builds you will likely prefer.

How much cotton do I need to put in my DIY coil?

It is important to use the right amount of cotton when wicking your DIY coil, and this will vary depending on the particular build you are using. You want to ensure that there is enough cotton to be making consistent contact with both the coil and the e-liquid.

You should still be pull the move the cotton within the coil, if it is packed too tightly it will not only make it difficult to remove the cotton when it needs changing, but may also make it hard for the cotton at the centre to become saturated. If the cotton is packed too tightly and the e-liquid does not penetrate to the centre of the cotton, this dry cotton may burn out quite quickly.

Do I need to change the coil every time I change the cotton?

Not necessarily. One of the advantages of DIY coil building is that you have the ability to change the cotton on your coil without having to change the actual coil.

You will usually be able to tell when it is time to change the coil as you will be able to see visible build-up on the coil and the cotton will burn out much faster.

Can anyone build their own vape coils?

No, DIY coil building is not for everybody and should only be done by those who have sufficient knowledge and are an experienced vaper.

You will need a good knowledge of ohms law which is needed to ensure your build is a safe resistance, especially if you are using a mechanical mod.
