What are the coils in a vape?
Atomizer Head. An atomizer head, which is also referred to as an atomizer coil, is the portion of a cartomizer/clearomizer that makes contact with the battery on one side and with the e-liquid on the other side, thereby vaporizing the liquid into a vapor that can be inhaled.
Is an atomizer the same as a coil?
A single coil atomizer has one heating element while dual coil cartomizers have two. The two coils are of the same resistance and are wired in parallel so the total resistance is half the resistance of either coil. A dual coil cartomizer built with two 3-ohm coils has a total resistance 1.5 ohms and not 6.0 ohms.
How do atomizer coils work?
The Atomizer is where most of the action happens. Inside the atomizer compartment is a small heating coil.
This steel wick extends into the cartridge and is the component that draws the e liquid or juice towards the heating coil, thus creating vapor.
