    I just got my Halo Triton stater kit, so I'm really new in vaping ! I ordered a 5 pack coil replacement (2.6-2.8 ohm) with my kit.
    The thing is I have no idea how long they will last for me, and what indicates I have to change them.
    Also wanna know if washing them would make them last longer ?

    Thanks in advance !

    if they taste burnt or stop producing vapor, prolly time to change/rinse them.
    yes you can rinse them, many many different methods.
    i personally rinse gently, soak in vodka, rinse and air dry.

    You should be able to tell a difference in vapor production when the time to change the coils comes. You'll start out with really good vapor and it'll end up tapering off quite a bit due to build up on the coils. I've had some coils last me as long as a few weeks, others just a few days; it all depends on the juice you vape.

    Darker juice tend to shorten the life span, while lighter juices don't have as much of an effect and allow you to vape longer. Burnt taste doesn't always mean it's time to change the coil or head; you could just be running dry from vaping too much too fast.

    Hello. Also be aware that your starter kit came with the 2.2-2.4 ohm heads, so those 2.6-2.8 ohm coils will taste/feel different, might produce less vapor and will most likely be a cooler vape than the standard 2.2 coil heads.

    If you're not changing flavors, it's best to rinse the tanks out ever 2 or 3 fills just to keep everything clean. Simply unscrewing the coil assembly and running all parts under hot water usually does the trick.

    Once you reach your 5th post, you can post in the HALO subforum -- but you can read through it now, at your leisure. Halo

    I mainly use protanks, T3's (rarely) and iClear's and I must say that with protanks I usually start getting the burnt tast after a week or two though sometimes sooner. Thats when i rebuild my coil.

    With the iClear tanks I can get anywhere from 2-3 months before I need to change out the coils. I don't know why they last me so long but they do. I have one that i just changed and it lasted about 2 months. The other one I have has been going for 4 months and is just recently starting to produce less vapor and taste off.

    I can't tell you how happy I have been with the dual coil iclear 30's I own.

    My other favorite tank is the RSST and it too has lasted months. This is a metal wick though and beefier coil so that explains why it lasts so long and it doesn't get tons of use. Just occasional usage when i want a wonderful vape at home.

    My wife uses very dark tobacco flavors...she gets 4-5 days at approx 5 mil per day. It's very hard to clean hers even with vodka.

    I use unflavored and I get over a week. Mine are easy to clean and burn off for reuse.

    Also, Triton tanks are essentially Kanger T2s with a slightly different base. T2s will work on a Triton battery and the replacement heads are the same. I get my heads at either or Mt Baker Vapor for about 1/2 the price of Halo...but they are short wicks.
