    It isn't a RBA / rebuildable, you buy Aspire Revvo replacement coil pack and replace the coil / wicking material unit.

    Are you asking how to prolong your coil life? That's an entirely separate question.

    Are you asking how to rebuild your stock coils? That may or may not be possible depending on the coil, but it usually involves some tedium. Could you also (if you are looking to extend the life of your coils) discuss your priming process and the juice you are using: manufacturer, PG/VG nicotine level and flavor? Also, how much JUICE (not days) are you getting per coil. As it sounds to me to be somewhat normal, but it depends on your juice and your consumption of it.

    Welcome to ECF, by the way.

    Is this the one with the stove top circular coil design? Generally depending on the amount of use, a typical drop in coil will last one or two weeks if used daily. Going through two in three weeks may not be unexpected with that coil.

    hi dear ana, i have seen people that have rebuild it with no problems, unfortunately i havent found a video or something of how to do it, as my coils are not being selled in my country its very hard for me to get them, about the coil life i dont prime it because its the arc new technology, with a new coil i get the juice in the tank and put it down so the coil recieve juice for about 10 minutes. im using max vg e juice from a vaping store called phoenix vapes of peach flavor in 0 nic. with both coils i have get about 30ml

    That sounds like good coil life at that wattage, though it depends on your eliquid. High vg, sweeteners, and dark liquids mess up coils faster.

    It looks like you could pull the old cotton out of the bottom and replace it (rewick), but I don't think rebuilding is going to be possible.

    A sweet juice and high wattage will lead to gunking faster than other situations. Still 30 ml doesn't sound like a ton of juice. The problem with drop in coils is the variability in performance and longevity. When your are able to get replacement coils and go through a few more, you'll have a better fix on what to expect long term.

    I would think the coil itself will last many weeks, the wick is all you need to replace. Remove the cotton from one of the coils and try to wick it. May take some trial and error. Might already be a youtube video up for rewicking.

    If you actually attempt pulling the wicking material out of the stove top / notch type coil the reevo uses you'll find the wicking materials used are multi density layers of a cloth type & cotton type material.

    You probably could get it all out & stuff cotton in, I'd bet it won't work well for very long & leak like a sieve.

    If you have found 'some pages that people have rebuilded it successfully', I'd follow their directions.

    Hi and welcome. You seem to be getting good advice, so I will shut up, since I don't know anything about that machine.

    In not sure you need a new tank, just an understanding you'll be changing coils weekly. That could well end up true for most is not all of the drop in coil tanks. I'd suggest if you can rewick those coils try that and see how much more life you get. The ultimate solution if the cost of factory coils becomes unreasonable is to simply get a tank where you build and wick your own coils. Then got can clean them whenever you want to for mere pennies in expenses.
