First time using mesh coils? Unsure how to proceed? Fear not – check out VapeBeat’s guide on how to prime mesh coils
Mesh coils are taking the sub ohm tank world by storm. And with good reason too!
They last longer, produce better flavor and tend to generate a much more satisfying, all round vaping experience.
Out of these two, I’d 100% go with the FireLuke Mesh if you’re in the market for a new vape tank.
I own both, and the FireLuke Mesh is LEAGUES ahead of the TFV12 Prince for flavor and overall performance.
Mesh Coil Pros
1) More Flavor
2) Last Longer; Around 5X that of a standard, wire coil
3) Easier To Saturate
4) Cheaper To Run
Mesh coils are A LOT better than the standard wire-based coils you’re used to. For starters, mesh coils have way more surface area to them and this allows for better saturation and more even heating.
This to attributes combined makes the vape more flavorful and smooth. Most importantly, though, mesh coils last about FIVE TIMES longer than standard wire coils.
And that is where things get significant. Flavor’s one thing, but running a mesh coil will say your oodles of cash every month. Case in point: you’re looking at around 7-14 days of performance from a single coil.
Compared to wire coils, that is massively impressive.
How Mesh Coils Work
It’s actually really simple.
You just need to ensure that the cotton inside the coil head is completely saturated.
It takes a little time and a bit of E Juice, but once you learn how to do it properly you’ll never have a dry hit again.
You might want to use a tissue to do this as well, as it can get a little messy!
6 Quick Steps For Priming Your Mesh Coils Perfectly
1) Take your new coil out of its pack.
2) Grab your juice bottle.
3) Slowly drip E Juice through the mesh (at the top) and onto the cotton.
4) Do a few drops, then wait.
5) Check the wicking holes on the side, they should be saturated with juice.
6) If they’re not, keep dripping E Juice until they are.
Once your coil is properly primed, seal the tank up and fill her up with E Juice.
You can vape it right away, but I like to leave it for 5-10 minutes to let the cotton soak up, even more, E Juice.
This ensures you never get dry hits.
Best Wattage To Vape At?
Your tank might say the coil is rated for 60w-120w. But you’ll want to ignore this.
Start your new coil off nice and low; anywhere from 40W to 50W is fine.
Then, as the coil primes and reaches its optimal performance, you can gradually up the wattages towards its advertised output.
I tend to stick around 60-70W as this level is kinder to your battery and E Juice, and it also doesn’t burn the coil out too quickly.
Bottomline: the higher the wattage, the faster you’ll get through the coil (and also your mod’s battery and your E Juice).
