One of these technological breakthroughs in recent years is the ceramic vape cartridge. It has quickly take over the wick style cartridges of the past and is now the go to cartridge for avid and new processors alike. This new type of vape cartridges utilizes ceramic coils to heat and vape your extracts, which is different from traditional vaping devices which feature metal coils wrapped in cotton wicking material which is responsible for drawing the oil to the heating element where it is vaporized.
Undoubtedly, the ceramic vape pens were created to resolve some of the drawbacks of the cotton-based cartridges, like the oxidation of the metal coils and the spit-back effect experienced with the traditional vape cartridges.
Ceramic Coils Vs. Metal Coils
The significant difference between the ceramic coils and the traditional wire coils is evident in their construction. While the ceramic coils do not have wicks wrapped around them, the conventional vape cartridges feature metal coils wrapped in the cotton wick. In place of coils wicked with cotton, ceramic coils are constructed of a ceramic layer made with a specific porosity to allow oils to diffuse through it delivering a more consistent, more powerful, and high-quality vapor.
Another essential difference between the two is that while the metal coils heat up faster than ceramic, the latter offers more superior heat retention and a cleaner pull in my opinion.
Benefits Of Ceramic Coils
Ceramic coils offer several advantages compared to the traditional metal coils. Provided below are some of the benefits of ceramic coils:
Better Flavor: The porous nature of ceramic allows it to absorb more of your concentrate, which is vaporized with each draw. And because ceramics are now made with high-grade clay, they are pure and without any contaminants that may cause a negative reaction with your oil. Thus, a pure and high-quality taste is delivered with each hit.
Optimum Resilience: Ceramic is known to have a high level of resistance to heat. Hence, a ceramic coil will not damage under high temperature and it is extremely durable.
High Adaptability: Ceramic coils are also better at heating and pulling through high viscosity oils such as those found in the Cannabis/CBD industry.
No Burnt Taste: Using a ceramic vape cartridge, reduces the chance of you experiencing the burnt taste that comes with a dry hit. Plus the even more new full ceramic cartridges provide a complete potent clean experience every time.
Overall, the evolvement of ceramic vape cartridges is a massive development in the vape industry as it is an improvement in the failings of the standard cotton-based cartridges. What do you think is next? Let us know in the comments below!
