If you’ve recently purchased a new rebuildable atomizer, you’ve probably watched tons of online tutorial videos in order to fully grasp how to make the most of your DIY coil configurations. With these types of atomizers, you can really customize your vaping experience by building unique coil configurations that do everything from improve the taste of your e-liquid to seriously speed up the firing time. These atomizers can also save you tons of money as you don’t have to constantly stock up on pre-made coils from vape hardware brands.
One of the most overlooked aspects of maintaining a rebuildable atomizer is understanding how to properly switch from one e-juice flavor to the next. If you don’t do this properly, you’ll end up ruining your flavor experience as the taste of your last e-liquid will interfere with the taste of your new one. Plus, not cleaning out old e-liquid can cause gunk to develop on your coils and your atomizer’s mechanisms, causing your flavor to taste burnt while interfering with your ability to get a good hit.
Luckily, the process of switching e-liquids is extremely easy and requires very little time. We’re going to explain how to switch out e-liquids based on which type of rebuildable atomizer you’re using.
Despite the fact that RBAs and RTAs look quite similar, they’re actually very different. Both of these atomizers have a juice well that’s compatible with freebase e-liquid. But, while RTAs require you to build your own coils, RBAs allow you to choose whether you wish to use the build deck or install a pre-made coil, making them highly versatile.
Now, even despite these differences, the process of switching out e-liquids is exactly the same. First, you have to remove the coil. If you’ve just installed a new coil, we’re sorry, but you’re going to have to get rid of it. You can, however, put it in a small bag and save it for the next time you plan to use the same vape flavor. This way you won’t feel that you’ve wasted money.
Next, take apart the components of the atomizer and run them under lukewarm water. If there is any gunk from old juice, dislodge it carefully with a cotton swab. Then, dry each piece and put the atomizer back together before installing a fresh coil and filling it with your new e-juice.
Things are a bit simpler with an RDA because this type of atty has less components than the other types that are out there. As an RDA is intended for dripping, it doesn’t contain a juice well. All that you have to do is remove the cotton wick that you used with the old e-liquid. Then, fire your device for a few seconds at a low wattage to burn away any remaining cotton fibers that are stuck to the coil. Then, simply pour in your new e-juice and drip away.
Again, if you’ve only just recently inserted a fresh piece of cotton and you really don’t want to waste it, you’re more than welcome to place that cotton in a bag and use it again when you go back to the last vape flavor.
Find the Best Flavor and Vapor Experience That Works for You
As you can see, there’s really nothing to switching out e-liquids regardless of what type of atomizer you’re using. Still, it’s strongly recommended that you follow these instructions so that you can have the best flavor and vapor experience possible.
