Coils are the most important part of a coil-changing kit. A coil is what controls the amount of liquid that gets put into the tank. The more coils there are, the less liquid per shot there will be.
Coils are measured by the length of the wire that makes up the coil and the number of turns in the wire. The longer the wire and/or more turns in the wire, the fewer shots it will take to fill up the tank.
When using a lower ohm coil, less shots will be needed to fill up the tank due to how much liquid is used per shot. When using a higher ohm coil, more shots will be needed to fill up the tank due to how little liquid is used per shot.
When replacing your Coils make sure to buy quality ones that are not brittle or frayed. These will not work properly and may cause your vape device to break. Buying from reputable vendors online is usually very safe.
1 ml per shot
Recently, there has been a large movement in the cannabis community about how many milliliters (ml) per shot should be the standard. People are starting to create their own rules and regulations as to what is an acceptable ml per shot, but here at Weedly, we believe in science!
There is an easy way to determine the amount of ml per shot and it does not require any expensive equipment. You will need a graduated cylinder and a measuring tape, that’s it!
First, measure out one foot with the measuring tape and then measure out one foot of water using the graduated cylinder. Then, add this amount of water to the cannabis extract (whether that be budder, shatter, or wax).
1.5 ml per shot
In comparison to other brands, Vladdin’s bottle holds 1.5ml per shot, making their bottles average. Some brands hold 1ml per shot, which is much less than Vladdin’s!
Many people are aware of the drastic difference in volume between brands, but not everyone knows that even within a brand, shots can vary in volume. This is why it is important to check how many ml per shot your brand gives before filling up their bottle!
Some people may think that having less liquid in each shot will help them regulate their intake and prevent over-using the liquid but that is not the case.
2 ml per shot
Soon, you’ll only be able to purchase cannabis products in 2 ml increments. This is intended to help limit consumption and regulate the market, as well as put a stop to concentrates altogether.
Concentrates will be completely banned, which is very interesting as concentrates are what brings the most revenue into the dispensary. Many people prefer concentrates over flower due to the higher potency and because you get more usage out of it.
Dispensaries will have to find other ways to bring in money if they do not carry concentrate products. It will be interesting to see how this plays out as the market changes!
You will not be able to purchase more than 2 ml per shot, so make sure you are prepared with enough cannabis before going to the dispensary! Make sure you are familiar with all of the rules before going to buy cannabis after October 17th.
2.5 ml per shot
In the vaping world, 2.5 ml is the standard amount of liquid that most vape mods or batteries can hold. This amount is enough for roughly fifty pulls, or puffs, off of the device.
Many brands make tanks that hold 2.5 ml, and some make ones that hold more or less. However, if you have a tank with less liquid capacity than 2.5 ml, you will have to refill it more often.
Since you are vaping less liquid per pull, it is important to keep track of how much you are using. You want to make sure you are spending enough money on the right amount of liquid!
Some users who vape at higher temperatures may use up more liquid per session as a result. It is good to keep an eye on how much liquid your device is using up, especially if you are running out quicker than usual.
3 ml per shot
In the vaping world, 3 milliliters per shot is the average amount of liquid that is typically poured into the tank on a vape. This is considered an acceptable minimum amount to fill your tank with.
Many people will say 2 ml per shot, but that would leave you without much flavor or nicotine and you would have to re-fill very quickly. Three milliliters is a nice middle ground where you get some flavor and enough for a few puffs!
Some tanks require more than three milliliters due to their size. If yours does, then pour as much as it requires and then add some extra 1-2 ml increments until you reach the total amount required by the vape.
3.5 ml per shot
As mentioned before, most vaping setups are built to hold a certain amount of liquid at any given time. This is referred to as the capacity of the tank.
Most tanks are either 2ml, 4ml, or 5ml per shot. Some are bigger, but not many. 2ml per shot tanks are becoming more popular due to regulations in some states requiring low nicotine content e-juice.
Low nicotine content means you need to vape more to get the desired effect, which calls for more liquid in your tank! More liquid requires a higher capacity tank.
2ml tanks are also easier to maintain due to having less fluid in them. If there is any kind of leak in the tank, only half of the contents will be lost. With a higher capacity tank, you would have to replace all of the contents if there was a leak!
Tank styles vary greatly depending on the brand and model of vape pen or box mod. There are different sizes and shapes depending on what kind of look you want your device to have.
4 ml per shot
As mentioned before, most vaping setups require you to take several short inhalations to create one full inhalation. This is due to the amount of vapor produced per drop of liquid.
Most tanks hold about 4 milliliters of liquid. Due to regulations, this must be reduced by about 1 ml, making it 3 ml per tank. This makes it necessary to take at least three short inhalations to produce one full inhalation.
Some tanks have adjustable airflow so you can make the inhale longer. However, if the airflow is too tight, then not enough liquid is evaporated and the flavor is lost. So, there is a sweet spot for airflow that requires trial and error.
The same goes for trying to get one full inhale per shot—it takes practice! Some tips are to keep taking shots until you feel fully refreshed and breathe in deeply, and try different settings on your air pump.
4.5 ml per shot
As mentioned before, most pens require you to fill the cartridge with 2 ml of liquid. That leaves you with a surplus of 1.5 ml that you have to make up for in other cartridges.
Some manufacturers offer double-filled cartridges, but those are not very common and often hard to find. So, what do you do with that extra 1.5 ml?
You can either keep it in the pen and shoot 1.5 ml per shot, or you can take the cartridge out and pour the extra 1.5 ml into another one. It is your choice!
Some people like to have the option to shoot a little more or less liquid per shot depending on their desired usage. Having the ability to shoot 1.5ml or 4.5ml per shot is nice because it gives you more control over how much liquid is being used each time.
