How does E-liquid in Rugby play a part?

Are your coils primed properly with E-liquid Rugby?

Priming your coil is something that all vapers will have to do at some point on their vaping journey. In order to stop your coil from burning out, it has to be wicked and primed properly. If you don’t, you will end up with a horrible taste in your mouth and will have dramatically shortened the time you will be able to use your coil. Before anything, learn how to prime your coil properly here.

Sweeter E-liquids may be causing an issue

The sweeter your E-liquid in Rugby is, the higher the chance it has more sweeteners and artificial sugars in it. This means your coil is heated, it will cause the sugar to caramelise onto your coil within your tank and can give a burning sensation and taste after a while. If this happens, the cotton wicking material cannot be saturated properly which leaves you with a sticky, burnt and very messy situation.

The amount you use your tank and vape device will also contribute. Naturally, the more you use it, the higher the chance of it occurring, especially if you’re using your vape device at a high wattage. The amount of power going through the tank and coil every single time can also shorten the life of your coils.


A Smokey Tip

Change your coil every 2-3 weeks to avoid this from happening. Be aware that some e-liquids that are very high in sugar can sometimes burn a could out within a couple of days so you may have to change your coils every 7-10 days if this is the case.
