What is it resistance and why you should change it?

Each component of the electronic cigarette is very important and fundamental, from the battery to the drip tip, from the e-liquid to the resistance and it is precisely the latter that we are going to talk about today. 

In this article, we will try to answer the most frequently asked questions about this component of the electronic cigarette.

What is resistance? What is it for? How often should you change it?

Resistance is that part of our electronic cigarette that allows the vaporization of the e-liquid.

More specifically: the e-liquid is absorbed by the cotton contained in the capsule that we call “resistance” and brings it into contact with the real coil, which, thanks to the energy released by the battery through the box, heats the e-liquid until it vaporizes and allows the “vape”.

For this reason, it is extremely important as well as essential to ensure that there is never a lack of e-liquid in the tank.

As previously mentioned, resistance is the main architect of the vaporization of the e-liquid, it is therefore very important to understand when to change it because by not replacing it, in addition to losing the aroma you risk damaging the device.

The coil is what connects the tank with both the drip tip and the air holes, this means that by not replacing it, the deteriorated cotton will allow the e-liquid to pass more quickly, giving rise to leaks from the bottom of the atomizer, which could drip into the circuit damaging it, moreover, the excess e-liquid would risk reaching the mouth creating an unpleasant “vape” experience.

It is very common to wonder if not using the electronic cigarette can compromise the resistance and the answer is yes, in fact, standing still, the cotton continues to absorb e-liquid until the latter is released, creating a leak from the air holes. To conclude, it is therefore very important to remember to replace the resistance approximately every 7/10 days to avoid losses, but above all the unpleasant burnt taste that acts as a warning when the resistance is now to be thrown away.
