E-Cig Type of Atomizers – Difference Between CE4 and EVOD T2, T3 type Atomizers

E-Cig Type of Atomizers
In case you wonder what these silly technical terms mean,  CE4 is a type of atomizer that comes like any new plastic tube looking atomizers that you see everywhere now a days. This has some visible white strings(wick) on two sides which goes from around the top end to the core of the atomizer.

On the other hand the EVOD and T2 or T3 type atomizers look very similar in shape and material but looking closely you will see they do not have those white strings on either side, instead they may have a tiny cylinder looking long metal tube from top to bottom.

The way these two devices work are very different, the CE4 or similar type atomizers pulls the e Liquid through the long strings of wicks towards the top, while the EVOD type has these tiny but visible wicks that are at the base of the core where the heating elements are located. So in other words CE4 works pretty much the opposite way as the EVOD does. You fill the CE4 from the top while you fill the EVOD from the bottom holding it upside down.

The prices are very similar for both atomizers, you may find EVOD and T2 or T3 going for little higher (Average about $3-$5) when the CE4 average price is around $2-$3 depending on where you buy them from.  Remember not all CE4 or EVOD are created equal. The quality, looks even shapes can vary widely along with price. There are over 400 e Cigarette manufacturers only in Shenzhen, China which also means there are at least that many variation in quality and looks. Since there are no set standards for these devices, every other company tries to get creative in designing and building these devices and they all have a mini R&D department in each factory.

I brought with me 7 different kinds of CE4 and around 9 different kind of EVOD/T2/T3 type atomizers when I was in China a month ago.  I picked them from 4 different companies. To my surprise they did vary widely in every aspect. They did not even look exactly same, though with CE4 most of them had somewhat close similarities but the vaping experience was very different from one to the next. Out of 7 CE4 only 2 were decent and one was great. The rest didn’t create enough vapor to satisfy my thirst or gave me some burnt after taste. Remind you I used mostly pg based liquid as I remembered VG(thicker) type e liquid does even worse with these type of atomizers.

But surprisingly out of the 9 EVOD type atomizers 7 did great while the other 2 did okay but better than the best performing CE4. The best part of these atomizers are the way you can just change the core and it becomes all new again. These atomizers all have a core that is very easily changeable and they are cheap (Around $1.50-$2). If you use thicker VG based liquid that are darker in color than your core will not last more than a week. But if you use lighter color (Vg/PG mix), expect your atomizers to last about 2 weeks.

You can clean these cores by holding them under warm water for a few minutes while gently rub the wick part on each side to get the gunk out. Once you wash it, blow through them and shake them well so all the excess water of out than leave them around the window so they can dry for a day or two. This works well and gives them an extra week of life, but in my testing you can only wash them once or at most twice, after than the quality of vapor goes downhill.

One important reminder about battery cleaning, make sure to clean and dry the battery thread and inside the thread as 99% atomizers do leak a little juice here and there. For safety and for best vaping experience always clean the battery thread and inner side of the thread, in my experience Q tips work wonder. Make sure to clean them before you put them in charge and clean them each time you refill those cartomizers and atomizers. Enjoy and try the different E-Cig type of atomizers!
