Technology has made a difference in nearly every aspect of life. Communication, transportation, work, play and even how people ingest substances such as nicotine or THC. There is no longer the need to light a cigarette or joint creating smoke that may bother other people nearby. Thanks to vaping, smokers can enjoy tobacco or THC without affecting those around them. It’s convenient and effective, and there’s no need to go outside into whatever kind of weather Mother Nature is putting on that day. One of the best devices for this purpose is the vape pen. It’s a remarkable solution in how it works.
Parts of a Vape Pen
A vape pen gets its name from the vapor it creates that the user inhales. There are several important parts that make this work. The product to be vaporized is contained in a cartridge. This is often packaged in a 1ml rounded tipped blister pack. These contain enough for the equivalent of one cigarette and are convenient, easily changed and disposable.
There is also a mouthpiece, also called a drip tip. As the name implies, this is the part that goes into the user’s mouth and through which the vapor is inhaled. There are different size holes to suit individual preferences.
Vape pens also have an LED display screen. This shows the user important information such as voltage and temperature settings, the mode the pen is currently in and has an ohm meter.
Perhaps the most important part is the atomizer. This is where the cartridge sits. It has a wire coil inside that heats the liquid, turning it into vapor. The coil is powered by a rechargeable battery, similar to the way a cell phone is powered. There are three types of atomizers.
Types of Atomizers
The three types of atomizers allow the user to build different types of pens to suit their needs and preferences.
- Rebuildable atomizer – This is the least commonly used atomizer as it is designed for a specific type of vape pen. It does allow the user to build a coil for a much smaller vape pen.
- Rebuildable tank atomizer – This is a popular type of atomizer. It allows the user to install their built coil making it highly customizable. It has a tank for the storage of liquid.
- Rebuildable drip atomizer – This type of atomizer does not have a tank. Rather the liquid is directly applied to the wick. It allows the user to control the amount of e-juice that gets to the wick and it is good for chain vaping.
Allow most users prefer an atomizer with a tank, the rebuildable drip is popular with some and even the rebuildable atomizer has its fans.
Vape pens are the modern way to inhale THC. They are easy to carry, don’t create smoke that can bother others and are customizable. They have become the most popular way to use inhalants of all kinds. In the future, vape pens will likely continue to evolve into even better devices.
