What are Vape Hardware, Tank, Coil, Wick, Battery and Charger?
Understanding the general components of a vapour device will help you make the right choice when it comes time to buy or upgrade your kit.
When you’re just starting out, understanding the jargon can be confusing at times – here are the essential components and what they do
The tank is heat resistant and houses the coil and wick, as well as a reservoir to hold e-liquid. There are several different tank styles to choose from, each performing essentially the same function with some key differences. The following are the most common types:
Atomizer – Atomizers are best for people who prefer dripping and are the simplest in design of the three tank kinds. They can be transparent or opaque, but all house the essential components and are simple to refill, meaning it’s easy to switch between flavours when necessary.
Cartomizer – Cartomizers are similar to atomizers, with a few key differences. With a cartomizer, liquid is absorbed into polyfill which surrounds the coil, allowing it to hold much more liquid than a regular atomizer and offer longer vape time.
Clearomizer – Clearomizers use a clear plastic or glass tank so you can see the level of e-liquid and monitor when it needs refilling easily. Many models also have short wicks to allow for easier saturation and some users argue, better flavour delivery. .
The coil is a small piece of resistance wire in the shape of a coil spring that’s used as a heating element to produce a vapour from the e-liquid. They come in both single coil and dual coil formats – dual coals have two heating elements, while single coils only have one. The wire is wrapped around the wicking material (or in the case of a self built or pre-made coils, the wick is fed through the middle of the coil) and connected to the power source.
Wick is the absorbent material – typically cotton, twisted silica cord or stainless steel mesh – that carries liquid to the coil. The wick delivers e-liquid from the tank to the coil where it is heated and turned into a vapour so it can be inhaled.
The battery is what powers the device and makes it possible to turn the e-liquid into a vapour for vaping. While it’s one of the most straightforward aspects of an e-cigarette, there’s still a fair amount of choice when it comes to batteries. Some devices come with an internal battery that’s non-replaceable; that means if the battery stops working you’ll need to repair or replace the device.
The type of battery you use will dictate what type of charger it needs. Most e-cigarettes with internal batteries can be charged via a USB-charger for maximum convenience. They can be charged via your computer or using an adapter plug.
It is important to always follow the charging instructions provided with your vapour device, and to never leave it charging unattended.
