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. That way, you get a clearer mind of knowing how to choose the right vape for your needs.
Truth is, there are several basic parts that a vape has and while the designs and looks are different, all of them have similar 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 actually the replaceable section or assembly of wire that’s been wounded to a coil shape-like spring. In relation to the coil, these are wicked by using an absorbent material, typically cotton in an effort to better 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 – it serves as the power source of the entire device or mod and some vape devices come with 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.
Now that you know the components that comprise a vape device, let’s discuss the different types of it.
Pen style – compared to cig-a-likes, these devices are just a little bit bigger and it’s to make room for bigger battery. The great thing about these devices is that, they are easy to use and budget friendly.
Mechanical mods – these have a minimalist design as you won’t see any circuitry or wires on its construction and there are few moving parts that could go bad or wear out. But don’t worry because these devices are very durable and can take abuse. If you want to push your vaping experience to the limit, then this is what you are looking for.
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. Both types function the same way with an exception that the latter is thrown away when the liquid runs dry or the battery dies.
