If this is your first time to enter the world of vape, you might be lost in its labyrinth of types and styles of available devices. Well not to mention, it can be a bit overwhelming to hear the terms used. The purpose of this content is make everything comprehendible so you know the function of components and types used in vape. Through this, you will have a clearer mind on how you can make the right choice.
As a matter of fact, there are few basic parts of a vape and while each has a different design and appearance, all of them have similar function.
Number 1. Vape tanks – simply speaking, this is the part of vape that is housing the e-liquid, the heating coil and the wicks.
Number 2. Vape coils – this is either an assembly of wire or a replicable section in a spring like coil shape that is wounded. With regards to the coils, they’re wicked using absorbent materials which most of the time cotton in order to absorb the juice. The wire coil/s will be heated up and eventually, vaporize the juice that’s put on the wicks.
Number 3. Batteries – this is powering the mod or device and you’ll notice that some vape devices have integrated batteries while others are using replaceable cells.
Number 4. Vape mods – the job of this specific component is to provide a housing to battery that will connect and transfer the power to atomizer/clearomizer.
Number 5. E-juice – this is heated up to create the vapor which is made using combination of ingredients such as vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, food flavorings.
After learning the different components of a vape device, let us now talk about its different types.
Pen style – compared to cig-a-likes, these devices are just a little bit bigger and it’s to make room for bigger battery. These devices are budget friendly and very easy to use.
Mechanical mods – the design for this one is quite simple so you won’t likely see circuitry or wires on its construction and there are some moving parts that may go bad or wear out. But don’t worry because these devices are very durable and can take abuse. Do you want to experience vaping to a different level, because if so, mechanical mods can give it to you.
Cig-a-like – this comes in either refillable or disposable model and at the same time, the most used vape device you can find in the market. The said types function similarly only in the disposable, as what the name suggests, it’s thrown away.
