If you want to avoid burnt coils, the most important thing to understand is why coils get burnt in the first place. Coils burn when you hit the fire button, electricity flows through your coil and it gets hot. When your tank is still full, or there is a relatively higher level of ejuice, the coil will not burn, hence no burnt wick taste. But what happens when there’s no juice in the wick, or just not enough?

But what happens when you hit the fire button and the coil heats up and there isn’t much there to take up that additional heat? Naturally, the temperature of the coil increases, and without anything to protect it from heat, the wick is directly exposed to the glowing-hot coil. Since most vape devices uses cotton as coil, the wick burns. If the wick was completely dry, it would literally erupt in flames, causing more danger than just a burnt taste.

So how can you avoid this from happening and tasting that burnt sensation? Here are some full-proof ways.
