Cartomizer vs Atomizer

If you are thinking about switching from cigarettes to electronic cigarettes, one of the many choices you have to make is whether or not to use an atomizer or a cartomizer style device. It may seem like a tough choice, however, it only comes down to personal preference. If you’re not sure, it may be a good idea to try both the atomizer and cartomizer to see which one you like the best. Is this article, we will go over the differences between atomizer and cartomizer so that you can choose what fits you the best.
As we said above, it comes down to personal preference. There are countless variations of electronic cigarette brands, flavors, strengths, sets and batteries. It may seem overwhelming at first, but once you familiarize yourself with the choices you have, you will learn to appreciate that you are not limited with your electronic cigarette. The latest trends in ecigs are changing all the time so it is a good idea to keep youself up to date with the latest innovations in electronic cigarettes. Cartomizers were once one of those new innovations. Cartomizers were created to cater towards electronic smokers that were looking for a more simple way to use their ecig.
There are two main types of electronic cigarette configurations. These configurations come in two-part and three-part units. The two-part unit consists of a battery and a cartomizer while the three-part unit consists of a battery, and an atomizer and a cartridge. Each configuration will produce different vapor concentrations which affect the amount of vapor, the strength and the flavor with each drag. The main difference between the two setups is a trade-off between convenience and customization.
The atomizer consists of two parts which are combined with the battery. The battery activates the atomizer which in turn heats up the liquid that is contained in the cartridge or the drip tip and produces the vapor. In this setup, you will have to manually fill up and refill the cartridge after each session.
If you’re using a drip tip, you will have to add more liquid after every 2-4 drags. The advantage of the drip tip is that you will get the strongest concentration of vapor possible. The trip is ideal if you are looking for a strong throat kick. The disadvantage of the drip tip is that it will use up the liquid at a very fast rate. To avoid that, the cartridge is a good solution if you’re going to use the three-piece atomizer set. The cartridge contains a sponge which soaks up the liquid and feeds it into the atomizer at a steady rate. The vapor concentration will be less, however, you will not have to refill the cartridge as often and the liquid will last longer.
The cartomizer only contains one piece which connects to the battery. The main advantage of the cartomizer is that it is very simple to use. Buy your flavor of choice, attached the cartomizer to the battery and you’re ready to go. The cartomizers are designed to work the same way that the atomizer does, it has just been packaged in a more simple form. If you are going to use your electronic cigarette for an extended amount of time, is very convenient to throw a few cartomizers into your pocket and change them as you go. The main disadvantage of the cartomizers is that you have zero control over the concentration of the vapor. They are pre-measured when you get them and are designed to be thrown away after one use. After a while, the cartomizer will offer weaker and weaker vapor which is another negative. You are not getting the concentration that you want, but throwing it away too soon will be a waste.
This is one of the many decisions you have to decide on when you make the switch to electronic cigarettes. The atomizer is messy, less convenient and will run through liquid more quickly, however, they can be reused and it allows you to control exactly how much vapor you want in each hit.
The cartomizer is the better choice if you want convenience. Throw a few in your pocket and you will not have to worry about refilling your cartridge at any time. There is no mess to deal with, but you will not have the power to control the strength of each drag.
