Coilless atomizers vs. Coiled atomizers. Which one is better and what’s the difference?
In this post we’ll be covering the basics of the coilless vape pens we’re seeing a lot of these days. We’ll cover how they contrast with the more traditional coiled vape pens and give you a solid foundation to make an informed decision on your next vape pen purchase. Note that many vape pen manufacturers are providing both coiled and coilless atomizers with their pens. When we talk about the difference we’re usually referring to the atomizer...
Coilless Vape Pens
Coilless Vape pens refers to the lack of a coil in the atomizer. These atomizer can also be referred to as “ceramic donut atomizers”. So just keep that in mind any time someone refers to a coilless vape pen. As you’ll see the coiled vs coilless debate ultimately comes down to personal preference. Enjoy better flavor? We recommend a coilless vape pen. Enjoy bigger hits? Then go with a coiled atomizer. Be sure to check the product description as many vape pens will provide you with both options. It’s really that simple but to give you some more detail we’ve listed our top 3 of each below…
- Grizzly Honey Dab Vape Pen
A vape pen that features a ceramic donut atomizer that provides insanely clean flavor and superb airflow (won’t get gunked up) all for under $40. This had to be number 1.
- KandyPens Gravity
Not to be confused with the KandyPens Galaxy (another great unit). The Gravity is another great concentrate pen from KandyPens. KandyPens has perfected the simple and high quality vaporizer feel and performance. The Galaxy does cost $130 (at this time) which is considered a high end pen but it is worth the price. No clogging, reputable manufacturer and an all around great pen.
- Dr. Dabber Ghost
It’s all in the name. This is a great value (at $85) for a pen that is designed for flavor. Low temperatures combined with Dr. Dabber’s famous concentrate atomizer provide flavor that is hard to beat.
Coiled Vape Pens
As the name implies Coiled Vape Pens utilize a coil (sometimes multiple coils) in the atomizer of the pen. To be clear there is not right or wrong answer here. It mostly comes down to preference. Coil users will generally get bigger hits with fuller clouds of vape. That said, there is a slight tradeoff in vape flavor (as opposed to coilless). Coiled vape pens are great when you’re on the go and you’d like a quick solid sized hit.
Below are a few of our top picks for coiled vape pens…
- Grizzly Honey Dab Vape Pen
Yes we know this was listed at number 1 above. The Honey Dab pen comes with both a ceramic donut atomize as well as a dual coil atomizer for bigger hits… Dual coil atomizer, ultra portable and hard hitting for under $40. It’s hard to beat this setup.
2. Source Orb XL
The Source Orb utilizes premium titanium coils with a triple quartz rod atomizer. That’s just fancy vape speak meaning this thing hits big. The Source Orb XL also utilizes the Orb attachment that improves airflow.
- KandyPens Galaxy
This is another high end unit that comes at an affordable price. As with most coiled vape pens.. Lower voltage = better flavor. Higher voltage = more volume and bigger hits.
Remember it really comes down to personal preference. As a rule of thumb coils = bigger hits. No coils/ceramic donuts = better flavor.
