Vape coils, also known as atomizers or atomizer heads, are an essential component of the vaping experience. Choose from vape coils with different resistances and coil materials to suit your style of vaping experience.
Vape coils are essential to the vaping process. They keep the heart of the vaping atomiser head burning and producing vapour.
As such, vape coils are designed for a relatively short lifespan and require regular replacement.
You can source and select from the wide range of vape coils, mesh coils and all your vaping replacement coil needs online at Vape Store.
Online customer service is also at hand for one-on-one guidance on choosing and purchasing vape coils, vape juice and all vapour-related products.
There’s a convenient range of payment options which includes PayPal, VISA, and Mastercard.
For all purchases over $75, Vape Store also includes free delivery throughout Australia.
What is a vape coil?
Vape coils are a fundamental feature of vape devices. The coil is housed within the vape tank and contains wicking material and a coil of thin wire. The vape coil (atomizer) creates the familiar vapour the devices are famous for.
The atomizer head converts e-cig battery energy to heat the coil. This energy vaporises e-liquid for effortless inhalation. The atomiser head consists of three parts.
Atomiser body: The outer casing is attached to the base of the tank, providing battery-powered electrical contact with the coil.
Coil: Thin coiled wire. Pressing a button on the vape device delivers power to the coil, which is then converted to heat that vaporises e-liquid from the wicking material.
Wicking material: Absorbent material contained within the atomizer head. Wicking material absorbs e-liquid as it is drawn toward the coil.
The majority of vape atomizer coils are made with nichrome or kanthal wire, although there are other wire types that some vapers use. These include nickel, titanium, and stainless steel. These are used primarily for temperature-controlled vaping, and aren’t suited to all e-cig types.
Vape coils have a limited lifespan and Vape Store is where you will find the best replacement coils for your device. Explore wick and wire coil options for your device at Vape Store, where our quality products are supported by expert customer advice and assistance.
Selecting the right coil and ohm
The vape atomizer head converts energy into heat that is measured in ohms. The atomizer head ‘ohm’ level depends on the amount of electrical resistance within the device. Atomizer vape heads are generally classified as high and low resistance.
High resistance coil: Resistance above 1.0 ohm. These coils usually operate at lower power suited to regular vapor production.
- Smaller vapour clouds
- Suitable for most e-cig products
- Uses less e-liquid (vape juice)
Low resistance coil: Resistance less than 1.0 ohm. Commonly called sub-ohm coil atomizers, and requiring more battery power.
- Larger vapour clouds
- Not suitable for all e-cig types
- Uses more e-liquid
Vape Store has the most progressive range of vape coils in Australia, including 0.15-ohm coils and 0.12-ohm coils. Vape your way at Vape Store with a large range of vape starter kits.
Mesh Coil vs Regular Coil
The different types of vape coils include ceramic, stainless steel, titanium, and mesh coils. Mesh coils are on trend with Australian vapers who are looking to expand the compatibility of vape juice with the vape device while also improving the ‘drawing’ experience and adjusting the size of vapour cloud produced.
Similarities: Mesh and regular coils work according to the same principles, although the effects vary slightly. Mesh coils are becoming increasingly popular for sub-ohm vaping, whereas regular coils are commonly used for mouth to lung vaping (MTL).
Differences: Mesh coils have a larger surface area, allowing them to heat at a faster rate for producing rich flavour and bigger vapour clouds. Mesh coils also provide a more uniform heat distribution for consistent vaping pleasure. Regular coils are preferred for small pod mod vape systems designed to work with a lower wattage.

How do I replace a vape coil?
Vape coils have a limited lifespan. If you experience a burning taste, weak e-juice flavour, gurgling sounds, or low vapour production, it’s time to replace your coil. Make sure to check your battery power level Before committing to replacing the entire coil. Here are 5 steps involved in changing a coil.
- Disassemble your vape. This typically involves unscrewing the tank from your device.
- Empty the tank to make sure there’s no e-juice left inside.
- Pre-soak the new coil’s wicking material with 5-10 drops of e-liquid.
- Unscrew the coil from your device and replace it with the new, pre-soaked coil.
- Replace and refill your vape tank with your choice of fresh e-juice.
If you are a vaper who wants more control, you can build your own coils. Vape coil builds are popular with experienced vapers wanting personalised vape performance.
Cleaning a rebuildable atomizer
If you use a rebuildable atomizer, you will need to clean your coils periodically. Here are some steps for deep cleaning.
- Remove the wick from the coil
- Dry burn the coil lightly
- Remove the atomizer vape coil wire from the mod
- Place the coil under running water to clear any buildup
- Brush the coil lightly with a cleaning tool or toothbrush
- Rinse any remaining residue off
- Perform a final dry burn to remove any remaining water droplets
