    Have you tried rebuilding the coil in these tanks? Super easy and easy more cost effective.

    This is what I do to clean & dry burn before I swap out juices!

    I actually dip mine in rubbing alcohol overnight and in the morning I take it out and let it sit all day.. the alcohol just evaporates and you have an almost brand new coil..
    mightymen and EBates like this.

    Thanks for the video, 317. I am two weeks into this, and my first atomizer is starting to perform poorly (I was a pack a day smoker). I have spares, but if I can get some more life out of them then that is even more money saved.

    Some have said that dry burning burns the insulator, resulting in burnt flavor, even with clean coils and wicks. Here's what happened to me:

    In my last attempt at cleaning & dry burning, I took about 20+ evod and protank heads, pulled the stems and flavor wicks, soaked and rinsed repeatedly in warm water, thoroughly dried. I then rotated between 4 batteries, giving each coil about a 3 second burn 'till it glowed, and repeated this about 5 times. After they cooled, I put a clean cotton flavor wick on each, and put them back together. The result? I've gotten no more than a full EVOD tank out of any of them before they started producing burnt hits, so I'm wondering if I may have burned the insulators? And if I recoil these heads with cotton, are they still going to go burnt on me?

    Ok I have had it so many comments about rebuilding coils being super easy.

    What exactly are you talking about rebuilding coils?
    Does it involve soldering?
    Do you need a magnifier to see what you are doing - ie precision tools?
    Does it involve wrapping fine wire into a coil with non-touching coils?
    Does it involve the magic of getting a tiny wick to through a 1mm diameter coil?

    Dry burning is relatively easy to do. Just check out some YouTube videos on this.... between that and all the info you will find here you'll be a pro in no time!!

    Everclear vodka. I do soak them in hot water too.


    Just some crazy old lady happily vaping away.

    I just drop my coil head in a cup of hot water and let it soak overnight. Then I let it dry on a paper towel. I do this every couple of days before I get any burnt taste. Then I put the coil head on the base remove the chimney and attach it to my cheap ego battery and dry burn for a second til it glows. I leave the flavor wicks in place cause last time I removed them I lost them. I put a drop of e liquid on the wicks and let it soak in. Then I put the tank back together and vape on.
    I had some juice that would burn quick in the iclear, but never had that problem with the protank.
    I think the key is cleaning before its burnt.
