The atomizer is the most important part of any portable vaporizer. The atomizer is the component that turns the vaporizers contents into vapor to be inhaled. It works by heating the coil that is in contact with the oil, wax or dry herbs. You should always be aware that atomizers could get pretty hot when in use. Use caution when handling them immediately after use and remember to keep the vaporizer upright when using oils and wax as they can leak and solidify.
Atomizers are like light bulbs – eventually, they will burn out. However, cleaning and proper maintenance of you portable vaporizer will ensure it has as long of a life as possible.
There are many ways to clean and care for your atomizer. Some clean it once a day, others do it weekly. Some people simply remove the contents and let them dry upside down on a paper towel; others run them under hot water or soak them in pure grain alcohol for a few minutes first. Make sure you check the manual for your specific model to avoid damaging it while cleaning.
Some atomizers can, with proper care, last a very long time (up to 3 months) and some will burn out very quickly (sometimes only 2 weeks or less). Tip: buy in bulk. You never know when you’ll need a replacement.
Lower Ohm coils:
— Creates more heat at the coil which in turn can create more vapor
— Provides warmer vapor
— Will drain the battery faster
— May cause dry hits (aka burning)
— May cause premature battery failure
— Uses more substance
Standard or “higher” Ohm coils:
— Creates less heat at the coil, which can create “less” vapor.
— Provides cooler vapor
— Will drain the battery slower
— Uses less liquid
The ceramic heating element is now most widely used because it provides the “most pure” vaping experience. Ceramic can withstand extreme heat, sometimes exceeding 3000°F, without its overall structure degrading; meaning, there is no risk of you ingesting any chemicals from the heating element itself. This is significant because the vaporizing community strongly emphasizes the health benefits of vaping compared to smoking (aka fewer chemicals entering the body).
An aluminum heating block can reach a maximum temperature of 240°C. They cap it at that temperature so that they cannot reach or exceed the level in which plant materials will start to burn.
Metal heating elements are especially good for vaporizers with temperature control settings because it responds quickly to temperature changes.
Glass heating elements can withstand the same temperatures as ceramic or aluminum. However, there aren’t many vaporizers that use this type because ceramic materials are more durable and perform better overall.
