When you decide to give vaping a try, the choice of flavors, liquids, devices, and styles may puzzle you. It looks like the vaping market has an offer for every wallet and every taste nowadays. One crucial choice you will need to make before purchasing an e-cigarette is whether you need an atomizer, a cartomizer or a clearomizer.

In case you are an experienced vaper, the choice will depend on your vaping style and preferences. If you are a beginner, wanting to make a good initial purchase of a vaping device, don’t worry, we will help you make the right choice. In this post, we will tell you everything you need to know about clearomizers.

What Is a Clearomizer?

A clearomizer is one of the newest and most popular devices on the vape market. A clearomizer is a cylindrical (as a rule) tank, made of Pyrex glass or clear polycarbonate plastic. A see-through clearomizer tank makes it easy to control the level of vape juice in it. If you search for clearomizers online, you will discover that they come in the most various configurations, sizes, and shapes.

Still, all of them can boast of one significant advantage: they have a great e-liquid capacity that ranges from 2,5 mL to 5 mL. Thus, a clearomizer holds more e-liquid than cartomizers and atomizers together. It makes clearomizers a great choice for users who are not excited about carrying a bottle of e-liquid everywhere they go and having to refill their e-cig in the most inconvenient circumstances.

How Does a Clearomizer Work?

This way, you will avoid burnt taste and dry hits. If by any chance, you still get a dry hit, you need to tilt the tank so that the wick for top coils gets saturated, or loosen the wick a bit and do a dry pull then, depending on the configuration of the coil that is installed on your e-cig.

When the e-cig clearomizer is worn, you don’t have to throw it away. In case you are an experienced vaper, you can easily rebuild a new wick and coil on your own. If you are a beginner, you can buy pre-built coil heads.

Clearomizers are highly customizable. You can choose different capacity, coil type, resistance, type and amount of wick, tank size, color, and design. Coil type and tank capacity matter most of all. It’s easy to figure out the tank capacity: the smaller the tank is, the less e-liquid it can contain, but the easier to carry around the device is. As for the coil type, it needs more attention.

Clearomizers use different types of coils that determine the vaping experience to a great extent. There are top coils (also known as top feeding coils), bottom coils and multiple coils.

A top coil is located closer to the mouthpiece. Thus, a user gets warm vapor, and the experience resembles smoking actual cigarettes. Such coils are easily refilled, all you need to do is remove the cap, which makes them an excellent choice for beginners. Still, it’s easier to get a dry hit with a top coil, because of its location. To avoid it, you need to either vape at an angle or tilt your electronic cigarette starter kit often enough.

The only disadvantage of a bottom coil is that it’s easy to flood. To avoid it, you need to keep your wick at a perfect balance. To refill the bottom coil, you need to remove the whole tank unit. Regardless of these inconveniences, the most popular tanks on the vape market (like a 510 clearomizer) all have bottom coils.

Multiple coils are also often found in e-cigarettes. They deliver massive clouds of vapor and give you a strong throat hit. The vapor is cooler because it doesn’t concentrate in one coil. The major disadvantage of multiple coils is that they drain your battery faster. To choose a coil, you need to consider your personal preferences.

Top coils work better for users who prefer warm vapor, whereas bottom coils are an excellent choice for the lovers of cool flavorful vapor. If you are fond of clouds, go for multiple coils.

If you worry how to clean a clearomizer, let us tell you that it’s quite easy. All you need to do is fill its tank about halfway with warm water. Put a thumb over the opening and shake the tank until the water is dirty. Now, dump the water out. Repeat it several times until the water is clear. As you can see, there is nothing difficult about cleaning a clearomizer.

Final Thoughts

As you can see, a clearomizer is a highly popular modern device. It comes in many types and styles and has its advantages and disadvantages. As a rule, they deliver a fuss-free vaping experience and require minimum maintenance. Clearomizer is a great choice in any case, but if you can afford it, you can give cartomizers and atomizers a try as well.

They deliver slightly different vaping experiences that can match your style better. Regardless of what choice you make, may your vaping sessions be enjoyable enough to keep you away from smoking.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
