Think It Might Be Time to Replace Those Wicks!

Wicking is
one of the most important ways to ensure that you can enjoy a quality vaping
session. Surprisingly, it is often overlooked by even the most experienced
vapers and it can be confusing to determine when it is time to change your
wick. It is important to replace your wicks because it can prolong the life of
your coil and lead to better flavor and cloud production. To understand when
you should change your wicks, you want to first know what wicking is and how it
works within the atomizer and device. The wick is an absorbent material that
carries the <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/e<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid_c_7.html”>e-<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid
to the coil.
Once the <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid is at the coil, it can be atomized. Therefore, it is important
to have a fresh wick to get the best vape.


Now, how often your wick needs to be changed can depend on a few different
factors:


-Part of it depends on the type of
e-<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/e<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid_c_7.html”>juice you are using to vape with. Propylene Glycol (PG) is a thinner type of
solvent, so it will wick quicker. If you vape using a <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/e<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid_c_7.html”>juice that has a
higher concentration of Vegetable Glycerin (VG), it is going to take longer to
wick because the <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid is thicker and moves slower through the wicking
material.

-The temperature that you vape at
also plays a part in how often you will need to change your wick. The higher
the temperature at which you vape, the faster the coil needs to recharge and be
cleaned.

-An old, saturated wick can leave
sediment on the coil so it is important to stay on top of it and not let the
wick stay past its lifetime.


The first thing you will notice when
it is time to change your wick is that the amount of vapor you are producing
during your vape sessions will start to decrease. The flavor will also start to
decline and if you really delay and leave the wick for too long, the e-<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/e<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid_c_7.html”>juice
will start to taste burned. The next thing you will notice is the physical
appearance of the wick will begin to change. If it starts to change color or
take on a burned appearance, then that is a sure sign that you should replace
it with a new one. If you do not change your wick, it will lead to an
unpleasant vaping experience. In addition to tasting bad, vaping with an old
wick is also bad for the coil. The saturated wick can leave a residue on the
coil and if you are not careful, you might have to replace it sooner than you
previously anticipated.


The best thing that you can do to ensure a pleasant vaping experience is to
change your wicks regularly. Remember that the type of e-<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquid you use and the
temperature at which you vape at play a part in how often the wick will need to
be changed. Before you begin each session, look at the wick and browse for
color changes or burns. If you are going to be changing e-<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>liquids during a
vaping session, keep in mind how the flavors will mesh. Depending on your
personal preference, you should consider changing the wick to get a cleaner
flavor. Follow these tips and hopefully you will be able to better identify the
best time to change your wicks.
