7 Best Drip Tips for An Amazing Vaping Experience
When we talk about vaping performance, we tend to focus on coils, tanks and batteries. We think that a powerful battery and good coils is all we need for an outstanding vaping experience. However, we shouldn’t neglect the importance of a good drip tip. For instance, you probably have experienced the consequences of vaping drip tips that overheat! And…That’s not cool as you probably don’t want to burn your lips!
The two most common types of drip tips are the 510 drip tip and the 810 drip tip. The first one gives a tighter airflow, while the latter one is better for cloud chasing and vapor production.
In this blog post I will list the best drip tips to avoid overheat and that ensure a great heat-resistance!
1. Honeycomb Delrin drip tips
These drip tips are a classic. They are great drip tips to avoid overheating and they are also extremely efficient. This drip tips have a honeycomb appearance with holes to offer plenty of airflow. These drip tips are made of Delrin, which is widely used in the automotive and consumer electronics industry. It protects against heat generated by high wattage vaping which makes it an ideal drip tip for cloud chasers. There are two common sizes: 510 honeycomb drip tips and 810 ones (510 drip tip and 810 drip tip thread). Basically, the difference is the drip tip diameter (the 810 has a diameter of 12.5 mm and the 510 has a diameter of 8.5 mm). Honeycomb Delrin drip tips are one of the best in the market and also cost-effective.
2. Carbon Fiber Drip Tips
These are cool drip tips, durable and also cost effective. In addition, carbon fiber drip tips are extremely lightweight which makes carbon fiber drip tips one of the best in the market. You can also find carbon fiber drip tips in 510 drip tip and 810 drip tip threads.
3. Stainless Steel Drip Tips
Stainless steel drip tips are beautiful and although stainless steel conduct heat, most of these drip tips get the job done quite well. In other words, you don’t need to worry about burning your mouth! However, make sure you buy high quality ones to avoid burning your lips.
4. Drip Tips with Stone Exterior
There are many stone-exterior and ceramic drip tips available in the market. The best feature about a stone drip tip is its beautiful and elegant design. You can find stone-exterior drip tips in both 510 drip tip and 810 drip tip threads as well.
5. Plastic Drip Tips
Teflon or polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene that has many applications. Perhaps you know Teflon for its non-stick coating for pans. In addition, it’s widely used in pipework and also as a lubricant.
They are a good fit to many tanks, and they are also affordable compared to other drip tips.
I have previously mentioned about Delrin drip tips and its heat resistant properties. This is one of the most popular materials in the market.
This is the most common brand name for PEI or Thermoplastic polyetherimide. They are currently very popular because these drip tips are very high resistant. Our new Aspire Nautilus GT Kit comes with PEI drip tips with a tight airflow and high heat resistance.
It’s one of the most popular materials right now. For instance, our Aspire Odan and Odan Mini tanks come with 810 resin drip tips. Heat resistant and available in a wide variety of colors and designs.
6. Glass Drip Tips
Glass drip tips are very unique and stylish. A glass drip tip offers a cool design although they are also very fragile. In other words, you need to take special care of them as they are easier to break than other more durable and resistant drip tips. On the other hand, they offer a good vaping experience and they are also heat resistant.
7. Wood Drip Tips
Not as common as the previous materials, wood drip tips are elegant and beautiful They can be heat resistant, however they require more maintenance and, low-quality ones could be exposed to moisture and heat. In addition, they can also splinter, which means that you need to apply a special care to this kind of drip tip.
Conclusion: Drip Tips
There are many materials that you can choose for a drip tip. If you want a tighter airflow, then you can choose a 510 drip tip. On the other hand, if you are looking for more vapor production and bigger clouds, a 810 drip tip is the best option.
It depends on your preferences and what style you think it’s better for you. However, in my opinion, Delrin and Resin drip tips are the best for daily vaping. If you are looking for more stylish designs, then you can choose glass, wood or stainless-steel ones. Nonetheless, remember to keep a good maintenance of both glass and wood drip tips!
