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 main goal of this article is to be able to make everything easily understandable to the different parts and types of 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 – 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. 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 are heated up to be able to vaporize the juice that was put on the wicks.
Number 3. Batteries – this technically powers the mod or the device and you will quickly observe that some of the vape devices have integrated batteries while others are using replaceable cells.
Number 4. Vape mods – the function of this component is to create an enclosure to the battery that is connecting and transferring the power to the 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 – 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. But don’t worry because these devices are very durable and can take abuse. If you are using vape for quite some time and want to have a new experience from it, then this is what you’ve been 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. The said types function similarly only in the disposable, as what the name suggests, it’s thrown away.
