    Hey all,

    Got my Uwell Valyrian in the mail last Monday (was so stoked to try it). But Its now 10 days later, and I'm on my 4th, yes FOURTH coil. I'm really confused as to what may be causing this. Every single coil so far has lasted a few days, then either completely lost all flavor (not vapor's tongue) or I've gotten burnt tasting. Whenever I installed a new coil, I babied it wattage wise breaking it in, and havent chain vaped at all.. Im just wondering why a tank with such amazing flavor and vapor production (when it's on point) is going through coils like nothing. Anyone else experiencing this?

    I've seen a few reviews on YouTube were in around 2 weeks they changed the coils four times because of the same reasons. I hope this is not normal for it as I just got mine yesterday.

    I'm having the same problem, 4 days in and the first coil went. Did you look at your coil? I checked mine and it looks like the top quarter of the coils were burnt and the bottom 3 quarters were perfect. I was able to clean the coil up pretty good and its drying now. I think it might have to do with how fast the tank drinks e juice. I th8nk you have to keeo the e juice completely covering the coils and not let the tank even c9me close to 40% left. Im going to try this out once the coil drys. Im almost certain it has to due with the level of e juice in the tank, since only the too quarter of the tank was burned and the rest of the tank was perfect, at less in my situation. This coil is a pig on ejuice. I'm on my 2nd 60ml bottle since getting this tank, I'm almost regretting it but I switch out. It's worst than the big baby beast. This tank performs excellent overall, it doesnt get too hot and I haven't had 1 leak period. I just wish the coils were a tad smaller overall and the ohms a little higher because it drinks so much juice. I'm diffently going to diy my own juice to use this tank. A little more reading and I'll be ordering my supplies by the end of the week.

    The coil needs time to break in. I wouldn't recommend cranking it to above 45 watts at first. The coil is massive and needs time to soak. Also there's a minimum fill line and if you pass it, can give you a dry hit. I pretty much never let the juice go below the coil. I also wouldn't recommend chain vaping it. Let it sit between vapes.

    Youtube reviews say the coils last weeks but reports online are to the contrary. I think its safe to say uwell still have not figured out how to make consistent coils.

    Hey guys, when I got my Uwell Valyrian tank 2 months ago I was really impressed, until I bought replacement coils. Now the 2 coils that came with the tank lasted 2 weeks each coil, flavour, vapour was brilliant and overall performance was good. I stressed tested the first coil by using the flavours/juices that I could not use in my Vaporesso NRG and VECO tanks and still got the best flavour production. Since I purchased a pack of coils, both coils lasted me 6 days, flavour was poor and my Ohm resistance was jumping from 0.15 ohms to 0.17 and then back down to 0.13. Burnt hits after letting the coil wick for the recommended 8 minutes. My theory is that Uwell send out the best grade coils with their Valyrian Tanks or use a higher grade cotton. The coils you buy separately seem to a lower grade to the ones that come with the tank. Its like the SMOK coils are mass produced and quality drops. Its not that we can rule out that the coils are not original because of the counterfeit seal and codes.

    I don't think there is different levels of quality when it comes to the coils. It's always a crapshoot with disposable coils.

    I'm using a extra/packaged coil on my Valyrian right now, and so far it's been mint, just like the 2 that came with it, only 2 days, but I've been pounding it at 95-130W constantly, and I haven't seen a difference at this point.
    Edit: I've also been careful to not go below the Line they advocate.

    So far my coil usage hasn't been that extreme or not to me at least. I guess looking at it written down, it does seem like I've been through quite a few coils. I received my UWELL Valyrian tank on February 22nd (&yes it came with 2 coils), I also went ahead & ordered 2 more on February 24th then again ordered more on March 16th (just yesterday, March 27th, I ordered 2 more but that's only bc I like to have stock & not panic when I need one & no I don't have them yet) anyways I just installed my 1st coil (this was on March 24th) from my most recent purchase on March 16th so I still have 1 more left. I do feel as though I burnt through the first 3 pretty quickly & I think that's all bc I had also brought a new mod when I purchased my UWELL Valyrian tank so I wasn't familiar with neither one of them & especially together. I was trying to vape at a wattage of 100 - 120. &on the valyrian coil it says 95 - 120 (yes I know you don't have to vape that wattage) but coming from Smok cloud beast with my Fuchai 213 plus, I was used to vaping at a higher wattage. Since turning my wattage down on my VooPoo to 80 I've noticed a huge difference in how long my coils have been lasting. Btw I use sweet premium juice. Right now I'm stuck on Suicide Bunny Mother's Milk so my coils go through a beating. So my personal opinion is, you need to keep playing around with it. Also lastly I only use the spiral pin, I have tried the others but I'm still a little confused on how one helps with clouds & the other with flavor. Idk that right there is a headache for me. Sorry so long, hope it helps somehow!

    I also find the coils to be inconsistent. But like other brands coils, I think Uwell over rates them. I find they tend to last a little longer if I keep at max 90w. I use the spiral pin, with the airflow slots at a little under half open.

    You can all thank me for this later...I'm a seasoned vaper used to building my own coils - thought I'd give this tank and coils a try for convenience and had the same issues as everybody else - poor wicking, dry hits, coils not even getting through a day! The shop which I purchased it from blamed the poor performance on me and were less than helpful (thanks Vape store in Rothwell). I tried poking holes in the 'cotton' with a pin and my first thought was "that's not cotton" - it's way too resistant to puncture with a needle... so I decided to take the knackered coil apart starting with removing the 'cotton'. Read on...

    Grab yourself a pair of vape tweesers (angled) - these will cost you next to nothing - and pull the old crap out of there through the outside of the juice holes. What I removed is what I'd normally throw away! It was like the outer layer of Muji pad cotton - not absorbent AT ALL - utter garbage and not suitable for the task in hand.

    Once you've removed said crap - grab some trusty cotton bacon from your local vape shop - this will also cost you sod all and last for months if not a year!

    Rip a strip of cotton bacon off - a sensible about that will pack out where the old 'cotton' was.

    Twist the end in your fingers so you can thread it through the holes you pulled the old stuff out of and feed it through with your tweezers. Go in one hole, out of the next, then back in the same hole you've pulled it out of - this will make the job easy rather than trying to feed it all the way around the coil in one go. Repeat until you've reached the start again.

    Your coil should now be surrounded with fresh, absorbent cotton bacon.

    Tuck it in where you started and fluff up the cotton where it comes out of the juice holes ensuring that the holes are covered from the inside by the cotton bacon.

    Juice that bad boy up BEFORE putting the coil back into the tank - just apply plenty of juice to the INSIDE of the coil until the juice can be seen on the outside of the cotton visible through the juice holes. Reassemble, fill up and enjoy.

    Start around 50w and work your way up to 95 in 5W increments slowly so as not to burn the new cotton. Congratulations - you now have non-leak, rewickable tank that will put many RDAs to shame. The flavour WILL be amazing, the juice WILL wick and you WILL have a 'moist' and dense vaping experience rather than the harsh, dry one which UWELL have inflicted upon you.

    Obviously eventually the coil will get manky and then it's time to buy a new one but it should last a while. You could try dry burning it without cotton and rinsing to get the crap off. Other people use vodka or isopropyl alcohol to clean the coil itself (without the cotton in place - you don't want to be inhaling that stuff)... Sounds like a lot of work but literally - 5 minutes start to finish. You'll get the materials to do this for less that the cost of a new coil and you can do it time after time...enjoy!

    Rob.

    I've had my take for about a month and have probably went through 10 coils. There is a problem with these coils theres more bad ones the good ones. Pretty pissed that I got this tank will be looking for another tank.

    I have had my valyrian for 5 months now and I have changed out my coils maybe 6 times I have had no issues with the coils losing flavor or burning out unless I didnt prime it well enough. I prime it with juice before I even try to vape on a new coil, otherwise it will just burn the cotton and have a hard time soaking up the juice in the tank. If you are running the valyrian you should use a higher wattage. The resistance is lower which means it needs to be a higher wattage. They are best from 95W to 120W. Even at 75-85W they are great. The higher the resistance the lower the wattage, the lower the resistance the higher the wattage.
