Looking for the top clearomizers of 2016? Every vaper has their own preference and opinion on what makes a good clearomizer. Like everything with vaping, making the right choice for you is what’s most important.
We’ve put together a list of some of the best clearos on the market today.
When making your decision, there are a few things you should keep in mind:
Capacity: this refers to how many ml’s of e-liquid the tank can hold. The usual range is from 1.5 ml to 6.5ml. If you’re a heavy vaper, you can expect to go through about 1ml of ejuice an hour, so a tank with a larger capacity is going to be a big bonus.
Thread Types: you’ll need to make sure that the thread between your battery and your clearo is a match. If they don’t match, the tank won’t fit properly. eGo and 510 threading types are the most common.
Atomizer Coil Design:
- Clearomizers that have the coil and wick located at the base of the tank are called Bottom Coil Clearomizers (BCC). This type of design allows the wick to stay completely drenched in the e-liquid at all times; giving you a smoother vape, and ensuring all your e-liquid gets used.
- Top coil clearomizers have the wick and coil placed near the top of the tank. For those who like a strong “throat hit”, this type of clearomizer would be a good choice. However, this design makes it more difficult for the wick to stay soaked with the e juice when your tank starts running low.
- Bottom Dual Coils (BDC) have the same design as Bottom Coil Clearomizers (BCC) in the respects that the coil remains on the bottom of the tank. You achieve a better performance because there is now twice the power.
- Bottom Vertical Coils (BVC) are newer in design, as they allow for more airflow than the Bottom Dual Coils. It is a single vertical coil that regulates the airflow inside the coil head, instead of 2 horizontal coils in the BDC design.
Ok, now that you have some of the basics down, let’s get into some recommended options.
