Primarily, the use of Cartomizers (although I didn’t know that term at the time) was my only exposure to the industry. After I was hired at Mt. Baker Vapor, my knowledge rapidly grew, and I moved on to clearomizers. When I first made the switch to a tank, my mind was blown. It was a ‘Holy Crap! This is what vaping can be like?’ moment for me. As I learned more and more about the various forms and functions of different styles of tanks, I quickly became an enthusiast.
Then, I discovered dripping. For me, dripping is the quintessential vaping experience. Huge clouds, great flavor, and infinite customization when it comes to the style of coils you can use. I’ve been dripping now for about 6 months, and I can definitely say that it is the experience for me. That being said, it’s not the experience for everyone. Let’s talk about some of the differences between tanks and dripping.
Dripping is an altogether different type of experience. You have to build your own coils for the atomizer, wick it yourself, and make sure that it’s affixed to a battery that is able to fire the atomizer at the given oHms that your coil is built to. Different styles of coil yield different types of vapor, in both taste and vapor production. Different wicking materials can also have an impact on your flavor and vapor experience. There is no truly “best way” to build a dripping atomizer. As with many aspects of vaping, it mostly comes down to personal preference.
