How to Prime a Vape Coil To prime a new coil, simply fill your tank with e liquid and leave it to stand for a few minutes before vaping. As above, this will allow the cotton inside your new coil to absorb plenty of e-liquid ready for that first, tasty vape.
Alternatively, you can drip your vape juice directly into the cotton in the airholes in your coil then leave it for a few minutes. You can then screw the coil back into your tank and fill it with e-liquid.
How Long Should You Prime a Vape Coil For? It's always recommended to leave your coil to prime for as long as possible - anywhere between 5-30 minutes. The longer you leave it the better, but most coils should be ready to vape after around 5-10 minutes.
Due to the viscosity of the ingredients, e liquids with a higher PG content will take less time to saturate a coil. Those with a higher VG content tend to be thicker and will take longer.
