Enhance Your Vape Experience with Drip Tips

Enhance Your Vape Experience with Drip Tips

Drip tips are one of those accessories that many don’t pay much attention to. As long as they don’t burn our lips, most of us are fairly satisfied with whatever drip tip comes with our atomizers. But with a little experimentation, you might find that testing different drip tips can enhance your vaping experience. Drip tips can affect things like flavor, the temperature of the vapor, heat distribution, airflow, and vapor density. And for many people, drip tips are fashionable.

  • Wider drip tips result in more vapor
  • Narrow drip tips result in concentrated flavor
  • Longer drip tips result in cooler vapor
  • Shorter drip tips result in warm/hot vapor

Wide Drip Tips

Wide drip tips are more popular with cloud-chasers because they result in a large amount of airflow. If you’re trying to vape low wattage on a wide drip tip, you’ll probably be left unsatisfied. Wide drip tips will result in more vapor, but will also drastically reduce the flavor you get from your e-juice.

Narrow Drip Tips

Narrow drip tips restrict airflow, which results in better flavor, but smaller clouds. If flavor is important to you, you’ll probably prefer a short, narrow drip tip. These drip tips are better for vapers who like to vape at lower wattages, for example somewhere 10 to 20 watts.

Long Drip Tips

Long drip tips keep your mouth further away from the atomizer which might result in less flavor, but also helps to keep from burning your lips, especially if you’re using a metal drip tip. The extra length of the drip tip also allows the vapor to cool down before reaching your mouth. If you like a cooler vape, you’ll like a long drip tip.

Short Drip Tips

A short drip tip will result in warm or hot vapor, which is what some people prefer. You’ll often find short drip tips on atomizers designed for high wattages. One reason for this is likely because the less distance the vapor must travel, the more flavor you’ll get. If you vape high wattage and don’t want to burn your lips with a short drip tip, consider a drip tip made of Delrin, ceramic, or glass, which don’t heat up like a metal tip does.

Which Drip Tip Is Right for You?

Some people don’t care about changing their drip tips, which is totally fine. A good atomizer will have the engineer’s intent in the drip tip, so most devices should perform well with the drip tips that they come with. But we all have different preferences when it comes to vaping and you might find that you prefer custom tips for your atomizers instead.

 

Many people also like to match their drip tips to their device. For example, you might like to have a red drip tip that matches the red color on your device. Most important is functionality, but we all want our devices to look great too. A drip tip can not only enhance your vaping experience but also make your setup match your style.
