The wick and heating coil that go into a vape system's heating element, which turns oil into vapor.

Vape cartridges contain atomizers.The atomizer heats up to the right temperature when the vape is turned on, vaporizing the oil in the cartridge.After that, the vapor can be inhaled.

Different materials are used to make atomizers:ceramic, quartz, and cotton wicks A small ceramic cylinder is encircled by a wire in ceramic coils.These are resistant to high voltages and retain heat well.Ceramic coils retain heat better than quartz coils, but quartz coils heat up quickly.

A small cotton wick is wrapped around a coil of wire in cotton wick atomizers. Oil is absorbed by the wick and heated by the element.The wick is easy to burn in these atomizers, which is a disadvantage.Burning can have a bad taste and necessitate changing the coil.
