How/When to know the time to replace?
Generally, I know when a coil needs replacing by just looking at it. It's wire has become dark black and the wick has almost but disappeared.

However, with these coils, even in wash them before each refill, it's hard to distinguish just exactly when they need to be chucked out. When the Ohms go all wonkey, that's surely one indicator, but unless I take it apart (which ends in disaster often) I'm reluctant to change them as the flavour from the juice just keeps on vaping. Even 6 hours a day, seven days a week.

So, any ideas on what to look for our notice before changing these specific coils would be much appreciated. What to look for?

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

When one of the coils stop working, usually the lower one. Mine last for months after cleaning and burning. You can pull the top cap off and some flavor wick will fall out, but it will not hurt the coils to clean them.
Peace be with you ...

Yeah, mine seem to go on and on forever. And I think I'm only changing them when they really don't need changing. Like I said earlier, I've changed a few without thinking twice as the Ohms jumped up to 5 or more.

Nevertheless, thanks for the reply zentrucker. But, how do you know when the lower coils stop working? Is it visible? Or, do you touch it and feel for heat?

Thanks again...

Like you said, the ohms will double to 4 or more - so they were done. Usually the top will still glow with high ohms, just hard to see the lower one in the housing.
Peace be with you ...
