How to Choose the Best Clearomizer
As you can see by our chart, there are a lot of different factors to consider when you are trying to choose a good clearo. Does it fit my mod? Is it bottom coil or top coil? Can I replace the coils? All of these questions and more must be answered before you can even start to decide! So be sure to use the sort and search feature on the chart to quickly find and compare different clearomizers. If you are interested in learning more about why each feature is important, check out the short summaries down below.
Capacity refers to how many milliliters (mL) of e liquid a tank can hold. A tanks capacity can range from 1.5 mL on the small end, to a massive 6.0 mL capacity of some of the large tanks, like the SMOK Titan.
During periods of heavy vaping, using an average APV (Advanced Personal Vaporizer), you can expect to use a little less than 1 mL an hour of e juice. This means that you can get 6 or more hours of vaping out of a large clearomizer such as the SMOK Titan.
But while large capacity tanks are great when you don’t want to bother refilling your clearomizer very often, small tanks have advantages as well. When using a smaller tank between 1.5 and 3 mL, you are still able to vape for several hours, but gives you the opportunity to change flavors more often.
Both ends of the spectrum have their pros and cons, and it’s an important factor when deciding on the best clearomizer for you.
Different Thread Types
All vaporizer batteries, clearomizers and cartomizers have threading that is used to screw them onto each other. It is very important to match the threading types between the batteries and the clearomizers/cartomizers. If the threading types do not match, your tank won’t fit on the battery properly.
Some different threading types include eGo, 510, 108, 906, and 808D. eGo and 510 threading types are generally the most common. You’ll often see 510 and eGo threading types listed together. That is because the standard eGo battery is compatible with both the eGo and 510 threading types. 108, 906, and 808D threading types refer to the smaller e-cig and vaporizer batteries, which have smaller diameters that more closely match the actual size of cigarettes.
Atomizer Coil Design
Coil heads heat up and turn your e-liquid into the vapor you inhale; in clearomizers they also contain the atomizer and the wick. Coil heads need to be replaced every so often (some say every few weeks), which makes clearomizers with replaceable heads more cost effective.
When the e-liquid inside your tank turns darker, and has an unpleasant burnt (or sometimes spicy) flavor, this is when the coil head needs to be replaced. Coil heads are available in different resistances (measured in ohms) which can then be adjusted up or down to fluctuate the temperature of your coil head. This is important to note because the temperature of your coil head determines how the vapor feels when you inhale. It’s best to test out the different resistances to learn what you like best.
The placement of the coil and wick has a big difference in the feeling of the vapor and performance of clearomizers. Clearomizers that have the coil and wick located at the base of the tank are called Bottom Coil Clearomizers. This 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 is suggested. However, this design makes it more difficult for the wick to stay soaked with the e-liquid when your tank starts running low.
It’s important to explain this now, since a lot of vapers might not understand what “resistance” and “ohms” is, it’s imperative to understand when you’re dealing with the differences between clearomizers and cartomizers.
“Ohms” refers to how much resistance that device has to the energy in the battery. The lower the resistance (ohms), the higher amount of energy you need from the battery. For example, a clearomizer with a 1.8 ohm heating coil will use more energy from the battery than a 2.4 ohm, and the more throat hit a vaper will receive from the 1.8 ohm heating coil than the 2.4.
The downside to the lower resistance is that it drains the battery faster, and most cartomizers and clearomizers have a lower resistance. Fortunately the majority of atomizers have a 2.4 ohm rating.
Clearomizer Reviews and Guides
Here are a couple of clearomizer reviews and vaping guides to get you started! Be sure to check back often as we are constantly adding more reviews to the database.
For the most part, new clearomizers will make small improvements on the prior versions, tweak the design, add a small feature, ect. But every once in awhile, a game changer hits the market. Enter the Aspire Nautilus. The Nautilus is a new clearomizer from the guys over at Aspire that is changing how vapers think of clearomizers. From a large tank capacity to a revolutionary adjustable airflow design, it’s hard not to get excited. Check out the Aspire Nautilus review and learn why everyone is raving about it!
Kanger has established themselves over the years as pioneers in the clearomizer market. The Unitank, Protank 2, Protank 3, EVOD, T3S; the list of their clearomizer products goes on! With the release of their newest clearomizer, the Kanger Aerotank, they are looking to shake up the vaping world one more time. Similar to the Aspire Nautilus, a key feature the Aerotank offers is an awesome adjustable airflow valve. This isn’t the only new feature, be sure to find out more over at our Kanger Aerotank review!
The Kanger T3S is a very popular model from the ever expanding Kanger Protank series. We cover all the main aspects including build quality, tank capacity, threading type, replacement heads and more. If you are interested in learning if the T3S is a good fit for you and your gear, then check out the full Kanger T3S review!
Aspire ET-S BDC
Another great clearomizer from Aspire is the ET-S BDC. It features a set dual coils, and its design involves funneling e liquid into 2 holes on the sides of the coil. The 2.0 mL tank and 1.8 ohm dual coil head make this a great clearo. The price tag is much less then the newer Aspire Nautilus, but you get great performance for the price. read more over at our Aspire ET-S BDC review!
Learning how to clean a clearomizer the proper way is important so you can maintain the upkeep on your clearomizers. For those clearomizers with replaceable coils, it is less of an issue. On your coils get to gunky, you have the option of changing them out. But there are plenty of clearomizers that don’t have removable coils, and are meant to be disposed of at some point. These clearos can last several weeks, but learning the proper way to clean your clearomizer and dry burn your coil can really extend it’s life.
Once you have your clearomizer of choice, it’s time to fill it up. But wait! Before you buy any e juice, it’s important to understand the difference between pg vs vg. The percentage of of each ingredient, vg and pg, impacts what kind of vaping experience you will have. Whether you are looking for a pure flavor and strong throat hit, or are just into blowing huge vapor thunder cloudz, this breakdown will show you how to chose the best e juice for you!
