The question of when to change the head on an atty/clearo/whatever seems to come up quite frequently.
There is no one correct answer to this question, except to say change it when it needs changing. This is usually when there's a noticeable drop-off in flavour and performance.
People sometimes query why a head can last anything from hours to weeks. The answer to that one is usually down to the juice you're vaping. Some flavours, especially sweets and desserts, caramalise on the head, causing a build up of carbon on the coil. This can be cleaned off if you catch it early, but in truth it's better to just bin it and go with a new one. Even if you don't rebuild your own heads the cost has come down considerably over recent months and, in my humble opinion, it's not worth sacrificing the quality of your vape for a few pennies.
This is an extreme example, but a real one which I took out of my Penelope. The same thing will happen whatever type of wick/coil/head you're using.
Great post that deserves a link in the newbies thread - this must be one of the most often asked questions, abd one which I'm only just discovering now! Thanks for the info, it's reassuring that I'm not alone in killing my heads just because I love the taste of bananas and strawberries

Yes in my experience it definitely is the juice - the coils when I vape my homemade chocolate pralines will only work well for 3 or 4 days at most, but I find the same type of coils and tanks used with other flavours can last weeks.
Excellent post OneDay & I couldn't agree more with "Even if you don't rebuild your own heads the cost has come down considerably over recent months and, in my humble opinion, it's not worth sacrificing the quality of your vape for a few pennies."
