How does the atomizer work?

How does the atomizer work?
The atomizer is the most important part of any electronic cigarette. The atomizer is the part that turns the liquid into vapor. It does this by heating a coil that is in contact with the filler material containing the e-liquid. You should always be aware that atomizers could get quite hot when in use. Use caution when handling them immediately after use.

What is “primer fluid”?
When atomizers are shipped, they are usually coated with a protective fluid that prevents oxidation. That fluid tastes quite bad usually and many people will not inhale the first 20 to 50 puffs off a new atomizer. It is perfectly normal to have a bad taste at the beginning but the atomizer should break in fairly quickly and lose the bad taste.


Do I have to maintain or clean the atomizer?
Cleaning, care and maintenance of atomizers is another subject that holds no definitive answers. Some people clean their attys once a day, others do it weekly. Some people just blow them out and let them dry upside down on a paper towel, others run them under hot water or soak them in pure grain alcohol for a few minutes first. Again this is an area where you will have to exercise due diligence and find what suits you best.

What is the longevity of the atomizer?
Atomizers are like light bulbs and they will burn out in time. Some will last a very long time (3 months) and some will go quickly (2 weeks or less). You should never rely on just one single atomizer.
