    Drop a couple of drops of eliquid inside the coil of a new coil to prime it.

    Just be careful you don't drip too much down the coil... results in flooding.. and leakage... just enough on and to wet the wick. Fact Is if you let tank sit for 5 minutes after filling.... it should self prime.

    Okay, with the BVC coils, you need to prime them well. You can put *a* drop down in the coil to prime it, too much more would result in flooding, most likely. The main thing is to fill your tank with the new coil in it and let it sit for 15 min--30 minutes. You can do a priming puff now and then, where you inhale through the mouthpiece but don't press the fire button. After you do that about 5--8 times, go ahead and slooowllly raise your wattage, starting about 5 watts, doing some slow, long puffs, then increasing in 5 watt increments until you reach your target wattage (which may be slightly different each time as juices vaporize well at different temperatures, so one juice may do better at a higher (or lower wattage).

    As far as washing your coil with the juice you didn't like, you certainly can. People use different methods, I usually rinse mine in very hot water then let it sit overnight in a jar of water. Then, I rinse it again the next day and leave it outside for the day-- I live in AZ where there is very low humidity, though. You can also dry it on low with a blowdryer. That should give you 3--5 days more use out of it, depending.

    Your coils aren't going to last forever. With the 0.7 coil, I'd say 1--3 weeks (if you are lucky) depending on your gunking factors: gunking factors include: high VG, low PG juices, very sweet or dark juices, NETs or WTAs, running your coil over its recommended wattage or at high wattage, etc. Sometimes coils just go for various reasons. If a coil is burned, slightly, you can rinse and reuse. If it's totally TORCHED for whatever reason, I would not rinse or reuse.

    If your coil goes bad, throw away any remaining eliquid and clean your tank.

    Best of luck, hope this helps,

    There isn't a video that I know of. Just when the coil goes bad, remove it from the mod, wash it in hot water then soak it overnight in water, like a glass jar. Wash it again with hot water the next morning after you fish it out....

    I have a crazy water filter below my house, some people use distilled H20 which I use with water I put in my tanks, but for soaking coils, my tapwater's okay.

    After soaking, take it out of the glass jar, wash it again with water, then blow dry it or air dry it. Once done, put it back in the mod or wherever you want to store your "second use" coils. You WILL get less life out of them, but some.

    Some people boil their coils but I'm not sure how a BVC coil would hold up to that....

    Good luck, it's not hard.

    If an Aspire BVC coil tastes burnt there is NO washing it, the cotton is burned so toss it and prime a new one. I use 3 Nautilus Mini tanks every day so I can give you a good opinion on how and what goes on with them. I buy the 3 5 packs at a time I go through so many.

    I haven't found that to be the case, SteveS45. I do remove my coils the minute they taste burnt, though, but I have resurrected almost all of mine at least once (I didn't bother with the one that got toasted when my Steampunk rolled backwards from 7 watts, not to 6, but to 120 watts. That was a coil I was more than happy to be done with, forever) but other than that, my method works perfectly-- for me, and with a close to 100% success rate.

    It can't be done more than once, though.

    Next time do an autopsy on it and I bet you will be surprised that the cotton is charred. I have been using the BVC Coils for a very long time and have tried cleaning them. I might do an autopsy but would not bother rebuilding them.

    I've cleaned coils with water and with 10% vodka in the water. It kind of works but usually only get a 50% coil.

    If you are worried about the cost of coils....Rather than getting a substandard vape washing coils that were never designed for it, probably time to look into another tank.

    The EGO mega tanks when you can find them are very cheap and can use CLR coils that are designed to be rebuilt or re-wicked.


    The Melo tank have a similar coil that is rebuildable and can be rewicked

    Not only is putting a few drops in the coil head safe, it is recommended by most manufactures. Keep in mind this really just for new heads that are dry. If you were using it, then re fill the tank there is no need to prime it. Can you? Sure, but you run the risk of flooding it is all.

    I have never had much luck with cleaning old heads. They are never the same as they were new. Air flow is restricted and flavor isn't as good. When the air flow starts to get tighter I just put a new one in it. Same with rebuilding them. Never had one turn out right for some reason. And I have built a LOT of coils over the years. To give you an idea, I have been using RDA and RTA's since they hit the market. So what? Maybe 3 or 4 years? I am re coiling something at least every day or two. And this doesn't count experiments where I may try 3 or more coils in one sitting. That is well over 1,000 coils.

    This is one of the reasons I don't like using tanks that only take pre coiled heads. The amount of time and effort it takes to clean one, or try to rebuild one of those tiny little things simply doesn't compare to the ease of putting a new build in an RTA. And with my RTA's I can use the same coil for a long time. I just pull the wick out, hit the button and burn cake up coil clean, then throw some new cotton in it. The coil itself actually lasts me quite a while.

    Look at this way. 100 ft of kanthal wire is about 8 dollars max. I think the last spool I got was like six bucks at local shop. That amount of wire will make around 200 coils at 1.8 ohms. More if you have lower resistances and don't use way more length than you need when building them. Cotton is dirt cheap for the most part. Lets be generous and say 15 dollars for the supplies needed to build 150 coils. That is 10 cents a coil pretty much. Pre built coils run between 3-5 dollars per coil. At 4 dollars a coil that is 600 dollars for 150 coils!!

    Vaping with charred cotton in a coil is not healthy in my opinion and does not taste good. At an average of $2 USD per coil I really do not think that is costly.

    I think everyone should do what suits them best. My cotton isn't charred, but like I said, I get my atomizers out at the first hint of burnt taste. If they look awful after cleaning them, I don't vape them. But, I've been pretty successful using my method.

    With that said, SteverS45 raises a valid point and anyone uncomfortable doing this shouldn't. I agree the coils are inexpensive.... I'm getting better coil life now that I'm adding 10% h20 to my max VG so it's probably going to be easier for me to justify just putting it in my "dead coils" jar (yes, I do hoard nautilus coils in case there's a vacopalypse and I have to try rebuilding them...) but I have been using this method for a long time without major ill effects. I know what really bad cotton looks like, and I do inspect them.

    But, I'm not the arbiter of what anyone should or should not do. I was told early on in the forum by very many experienced folks that I could do this without ill-effects, and that has really been the case *for me*.
