Dual Coil Tanks – do you really know what’s in them?
You may have seen them all colourful and shiny, but do you know how they work? And what difference would it make to your vaping if you got one?
We are going to answer this in a really quick and easy read.
There is so much information out there that it can be a bit confusing confusing, and often it feels safer and easier to stick with what you know.
But then you never get to try the good stuff…
So read on – we have a diagram too – so it’s easy to understand.
This is about Dual Coil Tanks (DCT’s), not clearomizers, cartomizers or anything else with ‘izer’ at the end – DUAL COIL TANKS.
First – look at the pdf diagram that is embedded in this blog – a very simple guide as to how a DCT is made, and what it is made up of. Seen it?

OK, now for the science bit…
Basically is it a very clever cartridge, atomizer and tank rolled into one.
The e-liquid is drawn from the outer holding tank and into the cartomizer through the tiny breather holes that are near to the bottom of the cartomiser.
The e-liquid soaks into the polyester filling material surrounding the atomizing coils, which themselves are surrounded by a flameproof material.
As you take an inhale through the mouthpiece, more liquid is drawn into the cartomizer from the surrounding holding tank, and at the same time the atomizing coils heat up to create the vapor you inhale.
Why are they worth investing in? Because you get more vapor (about twice the amount) and the e-liquids taste much much better – plus with the tank system it’s one fill and that is you pretty much sorted for the day, no messing with dripping, constant re-filling or changing cartridges.
So I hope this had made DCT’s less of a mystery for you, and if this prompts you to have a go with one – let us know in the comment box below – if you already use one – let us know what you think of them!
