What is the best Atomizer?
The best atomizer is the one that best suits your vape. It is therefore important to understand the different aspects that match you to finally find the best atomizer.
To begin, you must identify your aspiration, which is done in two distinct ways
- Indirect inhalation
- Direct inhalation
But we must also understand the influence of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin in e-liquids.
1- indirect inhalation
It is the one that we aspire before swallowing the steam. In general this suction is often restricted and does not require a big suction, so it's useless to choose an atomizer with a big airflow.
So which atomizer to choose?
For this type of vape, it is more suitable to choose an atomizer equipped with a plate for a single resistance, the power does not need to be high and the air flow is medium to reduced. All associated with an internal opening on the drip-tip rather narrow to average (around the 6 to 8mm surroundings).
Most of the consumers who vaporize thus, prefer the flavor of the e-liquids and steam on powers going from 12W to 22W surroundings, it is thus preferable to use resistances between 2Ω and 0.9Ω. But often users find a compromise to 1.2Ω or 1.5Ω for a power of 18W.
Which resistance to choose?
On clearomiseur the choice of resistance is simple since it is proprietary and its value written on the capsule. The wisest thing to do when you start is to use a value of around 1.5Ω in Kanthal.
On a rebuildable atomizer, it is important to know the three different types of resistive most used.
Kanthal is one of the most stable materials during heating (its value varies very little or not at all), so this is the most appropriate material. Stainless steel (SS316L) is a resistive less stable to heating (its resistive value varies a little when the material heats), but can nevertheless be steamed on a power mode or a temperature control mode that takes these variations in charge. As to Nickel (Ni200) its cold resistive value is very low and too unstable when heated to be steamed with the power mode. It is therefore imperative to use the temperature control mode to vaper with this type of resistive wire.
The simplest constructions the most basic and especially that are perfectly suitable for the atomizers "flavor" are:
- A simple Kanthal resistance with a 0.3mm wire on a 2 or 2.5mm (internal diameter) support for 8 to 9 tight turns associated with power between 18 and 22Watts
- A simple stainless steel resistor (SS316L) with a 0.2mm wire on a 2 or 2.5mm support for 8 to 9 tight turns associated with power between 18 and 20Watts. On the other hand, if you opt for the temperature control, I advise you to make spaced turns.
- A single nickel (Ni200) resistor with 0.2mm wire on an 3 4mm diameter support for 12 spaced turns, is only used with temperature control.
2- direct inhalation
It allows to swallow a large amount of steam directly, at the moment when one sucks. In general, this aspiration requires having a large air flow, so a large airflow on the atomizer.
So which atomizer to choose?
For this type of vape it is more suitable to choose an atomizer equipped with a double coil tray or a simple coil plate composed of pads (clamps) that support thick resistive, large or exotic (resistances worked with several associated son). The power is generally very high, above 35W, and the fixtures have a resistive value lower than 0.5Ω. The lower the resistive value, the higher the power must be, the same way the more resistance you work by mixing several wires, the lower the value and the more energy needed to be heated. It is therefore essential to choose an atomizer that can best dispel the heat you impose with your editing, so it is an atomizer with a large airflow (double or quadruple) and equipped with a very wide drip-top between 10mm internal opening at 15mm, even for some drippers that accept powers of more than 100W.
Most consumers who vaporize well, prefer large vapors with thick clouds, the restoration of flavors is of lower quality because the heating of the liquid is more important. Also this type of vape is often associated with e-liquid loaded vegetable glycerine. The powers are usually greater than 35W with resistors equal to or less than 0.5Ω.
Which resistors to choose?
For the clearomiseur, as a rule, everything is indicated. The resistance has a rather low value, between 0.2 and 0.5Ω (in Kanthal with double and triple clapton coils) and the atomizer accepts powers above 30W or even for some clearomizers from 40W to 80W and even 100W for some products.
The vape is very aerial in direct inhalation and ensures a large production of steam. Regarding the flavors they are secondary and in the best cases it is a compromise between good and acceptable that can be expected with a vape sub-ohm.
It is the same with rebuildable atomizers, the priority is the amount of steam with its density. It depends on the atomizer having the assets mentioned above (air flow, drip-tip, plateau), but also the assembly used.
The direct inhalation is done with a big suction, which has the effect to make up by the capillary, a large quantity of liquid until the resistance that it will have to consume quickly by a major heating via the power and thus a big steam.
To be able to apply a high power, the resistive wire must be thick or even worked. So with Kanthal wires from 0.4mm (it's a minimum) in double coil, you get a medium mount that can be vipped with powers of 35W. The thicker your wire is, the lower the resistance value and the higher the power you will have to go up. It is the same with the worked assemblies which associated several son, these weddings are often done in Kanthal, nichrome (NiCr80) and stainless steel (attention especially not of Nickel named Ni200), the quantity of material and the way to work it allow to make hallucinating clouds.
There are also aspects, in the design of atomizers, which come into play for these two types of vape. It is the volumetric capacity in the evaporation chamber, the way the air is directed thanks to the air holes, the position of the studs and how the space is distributed. There are so many different models and designs that it is difficult to accurately target the best compromise.
However, on flavor-oriented drippers, smaller rooms tend to concentrate flavors and offer a tastier and sweeter taste. On the other hand, this is not necessarily true for atomizers intended for the Cloud with a big room.
To conclude, with these two ways of vapping is that there is always a "better" atomizer for YOU!
3- The influence of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin
The proportions of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin (PG / VG) have an essential effect on the vape.
What is interesting to remember about the propylene glycol. This ingredient is a flavor enhancer, its consistency is fluid and the more e-liquids contain, the more the flavors have an accurate and pleasant taste aspect. It is also the main substrate of urination of aromas. It does not support heating and does not offer a thick vapor density.
It is also important to know that the vegetal glycerine has a very thick consistency. When VG is heated it offers a very thick vapor density, but beside that, the aromas mixed with VG are quite diffuse and do not offer the quality of a specific taste. The exhalation is evasive and faded.
All these essentials will allow you to find the atomizer you need. While knowing that it is possible to approach the limits of each product by making a flavor atomizer a small cloud maker and a cloud atomizer, a little taste treat. All you have to do is mount the product and its limits, adjust the airflow, equip it with the right drip-tip and choose the e-liquid you want to sublimate on the flavor or production of the product. steam, or even a mix of both.
