The art of dripping is quickly gaining popularity, especially among advanced vapers. Like the name suggest, dripping involves dripping e-liquid as you vape. For this, you'll need a drip tip placed on your sub-ohm tanks, rebuildable tank atomizers (RTAs) and rebuildable dripping atomizers (RDAs). These drip tips come in a variety of styles, colors, sizes, and materials, which can affect your vaping experience. Today, our discussion concentrates on plastic and metal drips.
Plastic Drip Tips
Plastic drip tips are ideal for vapers who use sub-ohm tanks. They keep your lips comfortable even when you are vaping under high temperatures. Additionally, plastic drip tips tend to be less expensive compared to metal drip tips. There are three types of plastic materials that are great on heat resistance. This include Delrin, Teflon, and Ultem. Delrin is popular for its low heat resistance. Also, for the variety of colors that it comes in.
Teflon is also a great plastic drip tip material. Its silky feel, on the mouth, is to die for. Not to mention that it’s also highly resistant to heat and gunk that might form on the lips.
Lastly, Ultem, which is one of the newest plastic material in the market, is best in reducing heat resistance. Additionally, it is resistant to flame.
Metal Drip Tips
If you're searching for durability, metallic drip tips are ideal. Stainless steel and aluminum drip tips are affordable, not to mention durable. This is one advantage that these materials have over plastic. Additionally, metal drip tips are more sophisticated. You can purchase titanium or gold drip tips if you need more luxury.
However, there's a downside to metallic drip tips. They conduct heat and, therefore, are not suitable for sub-ohm tanks or chain vaping for that matter. Also, they tend to interfere with the flavor, and if you've gunk on your lips, it will stick on the metal.
Choosing a drip tip material is easy. All you need to do is determine your vaping style. Next, you need to identify your preferences. From there, you're good to go.
