Whether you’re a seasoned vaper or a newcomer, we’re here to unravel the mystery of coils, step by step. I’ll explain what they do, why they matter, and help you find the perfect coil for your Smok R-Kiss 2.

SMOK R-KISS 2 Compatible Coils

When it comes to these coils and the Smok R-Kiss 2 mod, it’s all about the compatibility dance. You see, it hinges on the threading and design of your tank or atomizer. Now, the R-Kiss 2 mod is a dual 18650 battery powerhouse, and it plays nice with tanks or atomizers that sport a 510 connection.

Now, let’s take a closer look at the coil options. 

SMOK V2 A1 Single Mesh

  2. Wide Wattage Range: With a wattage range of 70W to 120W and a best performance range of 85W to 105W, these coils offer versatility to cater to different vaping preferences.
  3. Compatibility: These coils are compatible with several SMOK devices, making them convenient for users who own SMOK products, including the SMOK R-Kiss Kit, SMOK Mag Grip Kit, SMOK Species Kit, and the TFV-Mini V2 Tank.

Smok S1 Baby Single Mesh

  3. Wattage Range: The coil can be used at a wattage range between 40W and 80W, giving users flexibility in adjusting their vaping experience to their liking.

So, let me sum it up for you. I’ve tried all three of these coil options with my Smok R-Kiss 2 mod, and they’ve worked like a charm. The key here is to make sure you’re using a tank or atomizer that’s compatible with the 510 connection and can handle these coil types.

One important thing to remember is to adjust your mod’s wattage settings to match the recommended wattage range of the particular coil you go with. This not only ensures optimal performance but also keeps things safe. 

So, go ahead and pick the one that suits your vaping style, and you should be good to go with your Smok R-Kiss 2 mod.

How to Choose the Right Coil

Wattage vs. Lower-Wattage

If you crave massive clouds and flavor explosions, go for the high-wattage champ like the SMOK V2 A1 Single Mesh Coil (0.17 Ohm). 

It loves the heat, performing best between 110W and 130W, ensuring quick heating and top-notch flavor. On the flip side, if you prefer a chill vaping journey, check out the lower-wattage hero, the Smok S1 Baby Single Mesh Coil (0.15Ω).

Resistance level considerations

The resistance of a coil impacts both the wattage you should use and the type of vaping experience you’ll enjoy. Higher resistance coils require higher wattages for optimal performance, while lower resistance coils offer a balanced experience with lower power consumption. Your choice should align with your vaping style and preferences with your Smok R-Kiss 2 mod.

510 Connection

Before making your coil choice, verify that your tank or atomizer is equipped with a 510 connection that aligns with the 510 connection on your R-Kiss 2 mod. This compatibility ensures a secure fit and proper electrical connection, allowing your chosen coil to function as intended. So, remember to double-check that the 510 connection on both your mod and tank align perfectly to enjoy a hassle-free and safe vaping experience.

Style of Vaping (Direct-to-Lung vs. Mouth-to-Lung)

If you’re into bold, airy draws and big clouds, the Direct-to-Lung route suits you best. Coils like the SMOK V2 A1 are perfect for DTL aficionados. However, if you prefer a more relaxed, cigarette-like draw, opt for Mouth-to-Lung coils. The Smok S1 fits the bill and delivers a satisfying MTL experience. 

How to Replace SMOK R-KISS 2 Coils

Changing coils in your SMOK R-KISS 2 is easy, but to keep your vaping experience at its best, you also need to take care of those coils and make them last longer.

  • Step 1: Hold the tank steady, grip the coil’s top and bottom, and unscrew it counterclockwise.
  • Step 2: Check for any liquid or moisture near the coil’s bottom connection and clean it with tissue.
  • Step 3: Inspect the golden dot on the tank’s base and ensure it’s dry and clean.
  • Step 4: Reassemble the tank by attaching the coil and glass, ensuring they’re snug but not too tight.
  • Step 5: Reconnect the tank to the kit, tighten it hand-tight to avoid damaging threading.
  • Step 6: Open the airflow fully to allow proper liquid absorption.
  • Step 7: Let the liquid sit in the tank for a few minutes before vaping.

So there you have it, folks! Removing your coil might seem like a small task, but getting it right ensures a smooth vaping experience. 

When to Change the Coil

Examining the Coil through the Four Windows

One of the first things you can do is a quick visual inspection through those four windows on your tank. It’s like peering into the soul of your coil (well, almost). If you see anything that doesn’t look quite right, it might be time to consider a replacement.

Signs of Coil Replacement: Darkening, Loss of Flavor, Difficulty Drawing

First off, if your coil’s color is getting darker, it’s a sign that it’s been working hard and might not be at its best anymore. Loss of flavor is another indicator. If your favorite e-juice suddenly tastes a bit muted or off, your coil could be the culprit. And don’t forget about difficulty drawing – if it feels like you’re sipping a milkshake through a tiny straw, your coil might be clogged or on its last legs.

Expected Coil Lifespan (Powerful Kits vs. Starter Vapes)

Coil lifespan can vary depending on your vaping setup. In more powerful kits like the Smok R-Kiss 2, coils tend to work harder and might need replacing more often, typically every one to two weeks of regular use. On the flip side, starter vapes with lower wattage coils might stretch their coil life to two to four weeks. It’s all about finding that sweet spot between performance and longevity.

So there you have it – keep an eye on those four windows, watch out for the signs, and remember that coil lifespan can differ based on your vaping gear. 

Troubleshooting Common Coil Issues

So, you’ve got your SMOK R-KISS 2 and you’ve chosen the perfect coil to match your vaping style. But what happens when you encounter some common coil issues? Don’t fret; we’ve got you covered with these troubleshooting tips.

Darkening Coil or Loss of Flavor

  • Signs to watch for: If your coil starts looking darker or if you notice a sudden loss of flavor, it’s time to take action.
  • Solution: This is often a sign that your coil has seen better days. To fix this, swap out the old coil for a new one. Remember to follow the steps for proper coil replacement.

Difficulty Drawing

  • Signs to watch for: If you’re finding it hard to take a smooth draw from your vape, it could be related to your coil.
  • Solution: A clogged coil might be the culprit. Try cleaning the bottom connection of your coil with a tissue, as well as ensuring the golden dot on the tank’s base is dry and clean. If the problem persists, it might be time for a coil replacement.

Coil Lifespan

  • Signs to watch for: Wondering when to change your coil? Keep an eye out for darkening, flavor loss, or difficulty drawing, as mentioned earlier.
  • Solution: The expected coil lifespan can vary. In powerful kits like the R-KISS 2, coils might need replacement every one to two weeks with regular use. For starter vapes with lower wattage coils, you can stretch it to two to four weeks.

Remember, coils play a crucial role in your vaping experience, and proper maintenance and timely replacements are key to ensuring you enjoy the full flavor and satisfaction your SMOK R-KISS 2 has to offer.

So, taking care of your Smok R-Kiss 2 coils is a game-changer for your vaping experience. Replacing them is straightforward, but ensuring they last longer is where the real magic happens.

Let me emphasize this: Well-maintained coils mean richer flavors and a smoother vaping experience. Whether you’re a vaping novice or an experienced enthusiast, following these tips will undoubtedly elevate your R-Kiss 2 game.
