The head (also called coil or resistance) is located inside the atomizer of the electronic cigarette.
It is composed of a metal resistance that heats up when the electric current passes and a cotton “whisker” that carries the juices inside the resistance. This mechanism causes the juices to be vaporized.
The cotton absorbs the juices through the holes on the head shell (holes for absorption). The larger the size of the holes, the greater the ability to absorb juices best cbd vape juice.
The size of the central hole instead, (the “vertical” one for the emission of steam), indicates the flow of steam that the head is able to generate. The larger the diameter of the vertical hole, the greater the amount of steam delivered.
There is usually a parallel between the juices absorption holes and the vapor emission holes : in the cheek shot heads, for example, the lateral and vertical holes are smaller than in the lung shot ones.
At this point it is necessary to make a brief overview of the devices (atomizers, ecig or heads) with cheek or lung shot.
The cheek roll (MTL, mouth to lung) is similar to the traditional cigarette roll and is recommended for those approaching the electronic cigarette.
On our site you will find information in the product sheet, in the “Further information” section under the heading Type of shot: Cheek (Cigarette) and Cheek Arioso (Cigarette without filter).
In lung shooting (DL, direct to lung), the vapor is inhaled directly into the lungs. For smokers, this is unnatural and is not recommended for getting started.
This information can be found in the product sheet in the “Further information” section under the heading Type of shot: Airy (Pulmonary).
compatible with my ecig? General rules
In general, vape juices with a VG of 50% or less are recommended for electronic cigarettes or cheek atomizers (MTL) .
On the market there are many vape juices with composition VG / PG 50/50 (some examples Vaporart , Dea , Dreamods and many others) or VG / PG 30/70 ( Pulp ). The aromatic yield and the perception of nicotine is higher in vape juices with a PG greater than 50 and is the recommended choice for new vapers.
For ecigs with lung shooting (DL or DTL), 70/30 vape juices (examples Enjoy Svapo , Seven Wonders ) or 60/40 are recommended, therefore with VG higher than 50% .
This type of device vaporizes more juices with each puff, therefore an excessive aromatic yield (caused by the high PG) could be inconvenient (the flavor could be unpleasantly intense).
Moreover, since the lung shooting heads are of the most modern type designed specifically for 70/30 vape juices, we can run into problems of leaks if we choose to use vape juices with VG equal to or less than 50% (eg 50/50).
