Maybe the coil died and I could replace that. I was on my fifth refill of the tank when it happened. About how long should it last before needing a new coil? Despite this little glitch, these could be great!
    Greyrat,

    I like to compare the coils in all the atomizers to the ones in a light bulb. They can fail at anytime without notice.
    As far as the M1 is concerned, it has been my experience their coils last as long if not longer then the ones in a Go Cart or Fury Tank.

    Happy Vaping!

    Cool What he said....

    Ha, I went into one of my very in depth responses in regards to the potential (variables) reasons a coil can fail prematurely and lost everything I typed out when my computer started updating software and rebooted right before I hit submit reply!!


    Not going to go there again. What Frank said and always make sure coil is screwed in securely to base with each refill. A loose connection will cause an atomizer to not fire!

    Lightbulb M1 User "Tip of The Day"

    Here's a few helpful tips for M1 users or anyone using a bottom coil tank: It has been from my own experience that sometimes it is best to prime the coil before first time use. If you have even switched out a new coil or simply using a new tank for the first time and get a few dry vapes or worse yet a burnt taste upon the initial fill then most likely it is because the coil is not getting enough liquid and/or there is some compromise in air flow to circulate the heat to the coil and up the cylinder to the mouth piece.

    For best results - Saturate each side of the wicks with a drop or two of E-Liquid. Veteran Atomizer users know that this is crucial when breaking in a new atty as well not to experience a burnt tasting hit!

    Take a few primer draws via the mouth piece to create a vacuum of air to feed the coil before attaching to battery. Just draw off the mouth piece as you would if taking a vape though do it a few times without pressing the button or even on the battery.


    Once attached to the battery take a few quick primer draws with the button in to heat the coil and get the vapor going.

    Finally take a slow controlled draw. No need to suck too hard. Pressing the button in and holding it is enough to create the heat needed.

    Most important! - If using a Variable volt device like the Go-go Fury, make sure the dial is set at the lowest setting for those first initial draws then SLOWLY turn the dial in small increments until you find your sweet spot and/or achieve the desired vape.

    Turning the dial up much at once or starting out with the dial cranked up to the max can blow a coil in attention to producing a burnt tasting hit on that first draw.

    Feel free to add your own tips here...These are just a few of the ones that has helped me consistently get the best vaping experience when using a fresh new tank or switching out to a new coil.

    Default As I said over on the All Things Go-Go thread ...

    M1 Coil Burned Out! I don't know what happened! I've rinsed it twice but this time it wouldn't clean up anymore. Reluctantly I had to change out the coil with a new one. We'll see how long this one will last.

    No complaints though ... the coil that burned out had been working like a champ since ... JULY!

    I love these things.
