Coils at Joyetech UK
We are proud to offer a well varied range of coils, including those for Eleaf and Wismec branded electronic cigarettes. Joyetech has produced many class-leading coils over the years, from the eGo-T Cone, which revolutionised the e-cigarette industry by offering vapers what is often considered to be the first true 'atomizer head', through to the innovative NCFilm Heater, which could last up to 3 months before requiring a replacement.
With a vast selection available, some of which are better suited to certain vaping applications than others, we explain the different types of coils available to help you make the best choice.
What is the Function of a Coil?
A coil, also known as an atomizer head, is usually small, cylindrical pieces of metal which house a coiled wire and cotton (often called wicking material). The atomizer sits within a vape tank and is immersed in e-liquid, which ensures that the cotton receives a consistent supply of e-liquid to prevent something known as a ‘dry hit’.
The coil is powered by the battery on an e-cigarette, which heats up the coiled wire within, atomising the e-liquid and producing vapour that is then inhaled. All coils have a ‘resistance’ value measured in ohms, which determines the amount of power that should be used to produce an optimum amount of vapour. Depending upon the coil resistance, a different vaping experience can be achieved.
Higher Resistance Coils
Coils which have a resistance around 1.1ohm and above would be considered to have a higher resistance in today’s electronic cigarettes. A high resistance coil is generally found within lower power electronic cigarettes designed to provide modest amounts of vapour, and more restricted draw, or ‘mouth inhale’. Examples of such coils would be certain options of the EX and BF ranges.
Lower Resistance Coils
Known as ‘sub-ohm’, low resistance coils are usually considered to be anything below 1.0ohm. Low resistance coils mostly provide much more vapour and an open draw which requires a direct inhalation. These types of coils are found within e-cigarette kits and tanks which are able to provide more power.
It is worth noting that not all low resistance coils are designed for a direct inhale, with some catering to those who prefer a more restrictive draw instead. These coils can still produce a relatively high amount of vapour and a good example of these would include the BFHN coils.
No matter what type of coil is required, we supply a full range to compliment every electronic cigarette we stock on our site.
