Coil head for EirHorse E Cigarette Platinium
It consists of:
1. Wick and coil bundle (this is what atomizes the eliquid)
2. The base housing. This is where the wick and coil are sitting and where the coil wire gets connected to the negative (outside shell) and the positive (your battery pin)
3. The stem or "flute", this piece generally seals the coil head to the top of the clearomizer so no liquid gets into it and performs a second function, channeling the vapor to the drip tip. On a bottom coil this just slides into a center post for the same reason
4. A seal (also known as a grommet, oring or condom) this works with the stem to keep excess liquid from flowing into the coil or the center stems of your clearomizers. All these pieces put together creates an atomizer. Once the positive and negative make contact and you press the power button the coil wire heats up and the liquid that has been travelling along the wick is atomized by the heat. Coil Leaking: Another issue that arises with coils is leaking and that is generally caused by sealing issues. See below for an exanple of an improper seal. There are usually a few seals (or orings) on a clearomizer coil head, these seals prevent liquid from seeping into the base or out of the clearomizer, once the seal is damaged it will leak. This is no different that a seal on an oil pan, no properly seal and you have an oil leak.
