It is easy to be lost in the different kinds of vaping devices available in the market, more so if this is your first time to try it out. Well not to mention, it can be a bit overwhelming to hear the terms used. The main goal of this article is to be able to make everything easily understandable to the different parts and types of vape. This is going to help you come up with the best decision of which vape device to get.
Basically, there are basic parts of a vape and while they may have a different look and design, they all do the same function.
Number 1. Vape tanks – well basically, this is the component that houses 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. As for the coils, they are wicked using any absorbent material which is most of the time cotton to be able 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 purpose of this component is to make an enclosure to the battery that connects and also transfers the power to atomizer/clearomizer.
Number 5. E-juice – it’s a mixture of vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, food flavorings and nicotine at the same time; all are heated up that creates the vapor.
Now that you know the components that comprise a vape device, let’s discuss the different types of it.
Pen style – these said devices are somewhat larger than the cig-a-likes but they are offering longer battery life; also its style of tank is similar to a clearomizer. What you’ll like about these devices is that, they’re simple to use and budget friendly.
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. These devices are durable and rugged as well. Do you want to experience vaping to a different level, because if so, mechanical mods can give it to you.
Cig-a-like – among the three, this is the most used device and it falls in one of two types which is either refillable or disposable. The said types function similarly only in the disposable, as what the name suggests, it’s thrown away.
