Atomizers - the different types available


There are many different types of atomizers in electronic cigarettes. Each work in a slightly different way and can have different effects on one’s vaping experience. The different types of atomizers are explained below.

Ecigarette Cartomisers

 

Cartomiser

Cartomisers are the very basic type of eliquid reservoir. They are often small in size and resemble traditional cigarettes. The atomizer contains a polyfill material, which soaks the eliquid and delivers the eliquid to the coil unit. Due to this polyfill material absorbing the elements of the eliquid, the flavour and vapour can be quite muted. Additionally, cartomisers aren’t transparent so there is no way of finding out how much eliquid is left for you to vape!

Hence, although most beginners switch to vaping with the simple vaping device that resembles traditional cigarettes and uses cartomisers, more people are now starting with ego devices that use clearomisers, as the experience is much more satisfactory.

 

 

Ecigarette Clearomisers

 

Clearomiser/Tanks

Clearomisers are often known as Tanks because they come in the form of a tank. The atomizer contains a wicking material, which delivers the eliquid to the coil unit. These are much better than cartomisers as they provide a wicking material to deliver the eliquid to the coil unit rather than polyfill material. This means that the elements of the eliquid aren’t muted, giving a much better vaping experience. Additionally, one is able to see the amount of eliquid remaining, as clearomisers are transparent.

One will also find clearomisers where additional equipment is supplied such as a rebuildable deck etc so that one can rebuild their own coils rather than use the coils provided by the vendor. Hence, these tanks can also be called RTA’s (Rebuildable Tank Atomizers) which are explained further below.

 

 

Ecigarette Rebuildable Atomizers (RBA's)

 

Rebuildable Atomizers (RBA’s)

Rebuildable atomizers is a more general term referring to atomizers where one is able to build their own coils. These atomizers also have a wicking material, which delivers the eliquid to the coil. The benefit of RBA’s is that one is able to customize their vaping experience to exactly how they would like it. However, one has to be extremely careful when building their own coils and not attempt it if they do not have basic knowledge of electronics including ohms law etc.

There are different, more specific, types of rebuildable atomizers (RTA’s, RDA’s, RDTA’s), which are explained below.

 

Ecigarette Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTA's)

 

Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTA’s)

Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTA’s) allow one to rebuild their own coils. The eliquid reservoir will be in the form of a tank, allowing one to store enough eliquid.

As already mentioned above, most RTA’s can also potentially be clearomisers as most RTA’s are designed in a way which gives the option of replacing coils provided by the vendor aswell as being able to build your own coils.

 

Ecigarette Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDA's)

 

Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDA’s)

Rebuildable Dripper Atomizers (RDA’s) allow one to rebuild their own coils. The eliquid reservoir is in the form of a dripper. This means that the eliquid reservoir is extremely small only allowing minimal amounts of drops of eliquid to be stored in one go.

The benefit of Dripping Atomizers is that the eliquid is dripped directly onto the coil. Vapers usually find that dripping atomizers provide the purest flavour and vapour.

It is possible to find RDA’s, which provide replaceable coils by the vendor so that if one is not comfortable building their own coils, one can, still experience dripping atomizers.

 

Ecigarette Rebuildable Dripping Tank Atomizers (RDTA's)

 

Rebuildable Dripping Tank Atomizers (RDTA’s)

Rebuildable Dripper Tank Atomizers (RDTA’s) are RTA’s and RDA’s combined. Again, one is able to build their own coils. However, the eliquid reservoir will enable you to store enough eliquid (similar to an RTA) but alongside will enable you to control the amount of eliquid that reaches the coil in one go (similar to an RDA). This allows one to have the experience of RDA’s with the practicality of RTA’s.

It is possible to find RDTA’s, which provide replaceable coils by the vendor so that if one is not comfortable building their own coils, one can, still experience dripping tank atomizers.
