Intro to Coil Building Video

If you’ve been around vaping for any time at all, you’ve probably noticed the community that focuses on building coils and “dripping.” To many, this may seem intimidating. While building your own coils can save you a ton of money and introduce you to bigger clouds and more flavor, it’s also a far more difficult undertaking than buying pre-built coils and replacing them as needed. Some vapers want simplicity, and there is nothing wrong with that.

We know there are also plenty of you out there that are ready for a challenge. For this segment of our audience, we’ve put together an intro to coil building video to get you started on this immersive DIY aspect of vaping. Isaiah will walk you through everything you need to know, from wrapping to wicking.

Ready to get started on your coil-building journey? We have everything you need including coil wire, coil jig kits, rebuildable dripping atomizers, organic cotton, and, of course, a huge selection of e-juice.

    I feel like your pricing is great for coils, and I don’t have the time ..But thanks for the info!!!!!!!

  • Peter says:

    I enjoy building coils for my udtech goblin just because it’s kind of a fun, relaxing, hobby type thing. Kinda like bonzai care, but with vaping!

  • Chris says:

    Very informative, especially for a beginner vapor like me.

  • Christopher says:

    Just my 2 cents.used to build my own coils but now with many companies coming out with sub ohm coils for tanks. There is no need for me to build coils.this movement is moving so fast hard to keep up with all the new products. Love it

    • Kenny Spotz says:

      It’s very exciting indeed! I like building the coils on my subtank RBA but I haven’t ventured into anything on this level. Love the diverse options available to all skill levels.

  • Kai says:

    I’ve been building my own coils for my EVO2 for awhile. This has some tips in it for me though. I learned how from a youtube video that had me heat up the wire after coiling it. I also have to wrap my coils 9 times because they seem to burn out pretty fast with only 8 wraps. I’m not sure why. Thank you for this though!

  • Michelle Rhodes says:

    Still intimidating to me! I will make the switch one day! And you can bet I will be re-visiting this video when I do!

  • tony says:

    dangit now i may have to try this lol

  • Elizabeth says:

    Totally bored at work, so I may just give making a coil a shot! (Usually my husband has to build for me, might just be able to impress him by the time I get off) Thanks for the info!

  • Kendell R. in Arkansas says:

    I will soon be joining the ranks of coil builders. Your coils are affordable, but why not go for half price. It seems to be a great way to pass time and save money.

  • Ed P says:

    thanks for making the video isaih! I just bought my first Rda at a local vape shop and this video is Really informative.

  • Francisco says:

    How does this work in a kangertech subtank mini?

    • Tim Mechling says:

      Well, if you use the rebuildable atomizer that came with the tank, these directions apply pretty directly. The Subtank Mini comes with a few pre-made coils, so you don’t even need to wrap your own out the gate.

  • Doug says:

    I enjoy building my own coils. Love my Subtank mini because I can tear a prebuilt out of a package if I don’t feel like building at the time.

  • Jeff says:
