While dripping has been around for years, this alternative form of vaping has remained under the radar throughout its existence. In fact, it’s gotten quite a bad rap because of people mistakenly believing that it’s a highly dangerous activity. The reality is that if you’re using the right equipment, dripping can be an incredibly fun way to enjoy your e-liquid that doesn’t put you at serious risk of harm.
Dripping involves pouring a couple of drops of e-liquid directly onto the coil of your atomizer and taking a couple of hits at a time. Many believe that this produces a more satisfying vape overall. It’s known to enhance the juice’s flavor on a profound level while strengthening the hit of nicotine. Another advantage of dripping is that it allows the user to enjoy a wide variety of different flavors throughout the day without having to constantly empty, wash and refill their tank.
Now, in order to drip properly, you need to know what you’re doing as this vape style requires certain equipment and a knowledge of basic vaping technology. We’ve created this guide to help you understand how to do this activity properly.
First, you need to purchase an RDA (rebuildable drip atomizer) and is specially designed to accommodate this style. Without an RDA, you simply can’t drip properly.
RDAs are designed for dripping as they have large airflow ports and an extremely small juice well that’s designed to keep the e-liquid on the coil.
Once you’ve selected a good RDA, you can begin your dripping adventure:
- First, take off the drip tip of the RDA.
- Pour about four or five drops of e-liquid directly onto the coil.
- Then, put the drip tip back on and take a hit.
- Take in a massive, thick cloud of vapor that tastes delicious.
You should get only one or two hits out of each dripping session. When you’re ready for another hit, repeat the process.
What Not to Do
Always be careful not to pour too much e-liquid onto the coil. This will cause your coil to flood, ruining your vaping session and causing unwanted spit back.
It is also important that you don’t hit your atomizer after that second hit. Each four or so drops of e-liquid is really only good for a hit or two. If you try to stretch out that vape juice, you’ll likely get a nasty dry hit. You may even burn out your coil, meaning that you’ll have to get a new one.
Lastly, always make sure that you put your drip tip back on before taking a hit. Otherwise, you’ll severely burn your mouth.
Have a Safe and Proper Dripping Time
When done right, dripping is an extremely fun way to enjoy the flavor of your e-liquid.
