One problem for new vapers is all the terms they have to learn such as atomizer,clearomizer and cartomizer, it can be a lot of information to take in. I’ll try and help you out and explain some of the differences.
I just bought a new clearomizer from vape daily in the UK, they’re a new vape store with a wide range of clearomizers available so I’ll start with..
What is a clearomizer?
A clearomizer is ofcourse a clear tank. They have the tank compartment that holds the juice, this then goes into a wick which goes to the atomizer head. The coil then heats the liquid when you inhale and creates vapour.
The main difference compared to catomizers is that they don’t have material inside the tank and utilize a wick instead. This also makes them very easy to clean.
Clearomizers are normally easy to fill and come in small ones as low as 1.5 ml but you can get larger tanks that can take up to 3.5 ml or more.
A lot of the new clearomizer versions now come with replaceable coil heads also which give them a larger life.
As you begin to vape your clearomizer after time the coil will erode which decreases the resistance and means you’ll get less vapour produced. Don’t worry though as new coil heads can be bought cheaply, if you’re in the US misthub have them cheap here.
This makes it really cheap but not only that, it also means that you can rebuild your coils how you want them. As an example you can keep various different ohm’s and adjust depending the type of vape you want.
What is a cartomizer?
While cartomizers are similar to clearomizers there are some small differences that can make a huge difference on your vaping experience.
A cartomizer is a mix of the word atomizer and cartidge. A cartomizer is a tank that’s filled with polyfill material.
When someone talks about the cartomizer they can either mean a vaping one or a analog style type, both work the same but are used with different types of e cig batteries.
Some use horizontal which are very similar to dripping atomizers, the coil runs by a centre air path with the coil wrapped round the wicks. The wick gets the liquid from the material so the coils don’t have to touch the material in the tank. This stops you getting that nasty burnt taste when your liquid is running low.
Which is best, clearomizer or cartomizer?
Overall I prefer a clearomizer, now they come in a variety of different styles, you can get a top or bottom coil clearomizer to suit your needs. I’ve found that I prefer the taste using clearomizers too, especially when I’m using a variable voltage device with it.
