What is a Vape Atomizer and How Does it Work?

Most people who vape have a general idea of atomizers, but many don't know how atomizer technology has progressed in recent years. To answer the question, let's go through the components and then compare three types of atomizers on the market today!

What Is an Atomizer?

The heating element in a vape pen atomizer transforms the oil or concentrate into an inhalable vapor. The term "atomizer" is most often used as a catch-all phrase. It refers to the component that contains the e-coils heating elements and the wick.

The Battery

You need a power supply on the go, and that's the battery. The battery heats the coils which then generate vapor.

The Cartridge

This is the tiny compartment where the vape juice or e-liquid is stored. It's separated from the heater coils by a membrane and only comes into touch with the wick. Cartridges come in either disposable or reusable varieties.

The Wick

The wick is typically made of cotton and contacts both the cartridge and electronic coils. Inside the cartridge, it becomes saturated with oil. The oil then travels through the fibers to the e-coils, where it is heated.

The E-Coils

The heating element is the coils. They operate on a direct power supply from the battery and can reach temperatures between 180°F and 500°F.

The Mouthpiece

You inhale the vapor through the mouthpiece.

Atomizer Thread Sizes

There are many distinct thread sizes and types offered by various companies. This is done to prevent customers from purchasing or interchanging their goods with those of another company.

The Type of Atomizer

Vaporizers are simple units that work when you know the components.

It may be difficult to comprehend the technical specifications and types of atomizers when you first begin learning about them. Let's go through some of the most common sorts of atomizers so that things make more sense.

The Cartomizer

The cartomizer is a type of atomizer. It is the cheapest type, and it comes in packs of three or five for between $10 and $30. Most cartomizers connect to a typical 510 battery (remember thread sizes?) and are universal for entry-level vape devices.

These are cheap and disposable, and easy to change. The build and vapor quality may be inferior, and they tend to leak more often than the other options.

The Clearomizer

This atomizer uses a tank that connects directly to the battery. Easy to maintain and convenient to use, you fill them with your choice of vape oil, and the tank can last for days or weeks.

They may be more expensive compared to a cartomizer. Also, once the tank is filled, you will be stuck with that vape oil for a while.

The Dripping Atomizer

The drip tip atomizer is for the purist. If you prefer the purest and most hard-hitting taste, this is your way to go. With these atomizers, you add the liquid vape drops directly onto the atomizing unit.

The disadvantage of these is that they are inconvenient. Each time you take a few puffs, you need to add a few drops of liquid.
