Introduction

After vaping on the cotton and coils currently in use, they will start to get a burnt taste. This is when the cotton and coils need to be replaced (rebuilt). If this is not done every other week or so, you will not get as much out of your vape and could ultimately end up burning the back of your throat. The guide will teach you how to rebuild the cotton and coils so this can be avoided.
