Vape modding has quickly grown into a popular hobby. People are intrigued by the science behind vaping, and the process of creating a unique vaporizer. First of all, it is important to understand how vaporizers work, and how mods can improve them. |
Vaporizers turn flavored juices that often include nicotine into vapor to provide an alternative to cigarettes. These juices are free of tar, smoke, and the other 3000 or so chemicals found in cigarettes. The vapor evaporates quickly, so the smell doesn't easily stick to the user.
Today, thousands of companies and individuals dedicate their time to making the best vaporizer possible. Of course, the idea of a "perfect vaporizer" is subjective to the individual, but the core design of each vaporizer is made up of more or less the same components: a battery, an atomizer/cartomizer, a cartridge, a tank, and a drip tip. Most also use a thread cover, which is mostly for visual appeal. All of these parts are customizable and can improve the quality of your vaping experience. One of the key components in this experience is the atomizer, which includes the vape coil. Almost anyone can build this component with a little time and some key materials.
The atomizer is a compartment that contains a heating coil and a steel wick. The wick draws the juices into the compartment against the hot metal, which creates the vapor. Building a vape coil requires:
- An ohms reader - Resistance wire - Small 2mm screwdriver or drill bit - Torch - Pliers - Small wire cutters - Scissors
First, figure out how many wraps you need to make on your vape coil. The number of wraps determines how much surface area will be heated at once. Once you have decided how many wraps you want, cut off a piece of your wire and heat it until it glows. When the entire piece of wire has been heated and is more malleable than it used to be, it is ready to be wound.
Since your wire will be hot, it is recommended that you use pliers for the wrapping process. Take your small screwdriver and evenly coil the wire around the screwdriver until you have reached your desired number of wraps. Leave it on the screwdriver as you move on to the next step.
The next step is placing your wrapped wire into the RDA. First, unscrew the post screws, and then use the screwdriver that your coil is on to place it in the center of the RDA with your leads in the positive and negative post holes. Once it has been placed, screw the post screws back in. Plug the RDA into your ohms reader and test it. If your reading is within .2 ohms of your target, you are good to go. Just add a wick and some juice, and you'll be puffing your own unique vapor clouds.
