    How often do you change out your coils, just curious....I go months on my builds.
    Is that good or bad?

    I've gone month's on coils, depends on how many watts you put through them, I look to see if the coil is starting to sag or if the wire itself has gotten dark, oxidation.

    Months and months, only change if really looking off color, or not heating up properly.

    I stay with the same build on all my atties, so I'm not one to change coils unless need too.

    Nice question. I was wondering about this too. Is there a rule of thumb? Because I have no consistent practice. Sometimes, I change coils when they start tasting funky. Other times, I don't like the look of them. And other times, I forget or I'm not in the mood to tend to my vape gear. :p

    Same here, kinda why I started a thread, But looks like they are good for several months from what others are saying, I have 4 months on my 2 RDA's and still going strong with no aftertaste at all, I do a quick dry burn from time to time to clear out any gunk.

    I try to change my cotton once a week.Once things start looking funky I like to freshen them up and running 20 or so atomizers at onetime makes this a big job- I’ll do it on a Sunday morning so I’m starting out the week with all fresh,clean cotton and scorched coils.

    Some juices(Super sweet)May require it every few days in my experience.If you’ve ever used” Crack pie” you’ll know what I’m saying...that stuff is brutal on coils and cotton
