All vape coils (atomiser heads) will need to be replaced regularly but how regularly will depend on how heavily you vape and which e liquid you have chosen. Coils may last only a few days but could last more than a month. E liquid residue eventually builds up around the wires and wicks, clogging up the coils. The higher the VG content of the e liquid you vape, the quicker residue will build up. In addition, if you don’t keep your e liquid topped up, your wicking will dry out and burn. Once the wicking is burnt, the coil must be changed. The signs that your coil should be replaced include:
How long do Aspire Nautilus coils last?
As with all vape coils, the lifespans of Aspire BVC coils for the Aspire Nautilus tank will vary according to how heavily you vape. BVC coils for the Nautilus will usually last for around 10 days with typical use.
Are all Aspire coils the same?
No, all Aspire coils are not the same. Aspire tanks and devices are each compatible with a certain series of coils that Aspire has produced to complement the functionality of the hardware. It is important that you choose coils that are compatible with your tank or e cig by reading our product listings carefully. In many cases, you will be able to choose from coils with different resistances. Coils that have a resistance of more than 1.0ohm are suitable for mouth to lung vaping and high PG e liquids. Coils with a resistance below 1.0 ohm (sub ohm coils) are suitable for direct to lung vaping and high VG e liquids. Coils feature various types of wire or mesh to suit your vaping mode. For instance, most high resistance atomiser heads for variable wattage or fixed wattage vaping will have Kanthal coils. But those designed for temperature control vaping will feature nickel, stainless steel or titanium wires.

Can you clean or wash Aspire coils?
You can clean Aspire replaceable coils, but you might find that it is too much trouble for the minimal extra life that you will give your coils. Cleaning will remove only some of the residue that has accumulated and will not address burnt wicking. To clean your coils, follow these steps:
- Remove the coil from your device
- Soak the coil in ethanol, vinegar or vodka for 2 hours or more
- Rinse the coil under the tap
- Rinse the coil again using distilled water
- Blow air through the coil to ensure water passes through the wicking holes
- Leave the coil to dry and don’t reinstall it until the water has completely evaporated
Please note that it is not possible to clean the built-in coils of pre-filled vape pods, refillable vape pods or disposable vapes.
What are Aspire coils made of?
