The Best Drip Tips of 2020
“Drip tip” might sound like something you’d use for a home repair project, but it’s not. A drip tip is actually one of the most popular vape accessories! They can be used with a variety of different devices, including Tanks, RDAs, RBAs, RTAs, and RDTAs.
If you’ve been vaping for a little while and have a moderate amount of experience, you’re probably already familiar with cartridges and cartomizers. If you’re interested in advancing further in vaping and exploring other options, a drip tip could be the perfect next step.
Drip tips are easy to use, and they let you streamline your vape experience easily and inexpensively.
Don’t be worried: it’s not complicated. The drip tip is actually a pretty simple accessory. It’s simply a hollow mouthpiece that you can use instead of the more traditional cartridges or cartomizers.
Interested to learn more about how they work and how to use them? Well, you’re in the right spot.
By the time you finish reading this post, you’ll be up to speed on all things drip tip. You’ll learn what a drip tip is, how it works, and the advantages of using one.
If you’re interested in putting your newfound knowledge to work, we’re also profiling some of the best drip tips to try in 2019, based on popularity, reviews, and sales data from the Blazed Vapes store!
What’s a Drip Tip?
A drip tip is an accessory that provides an alternative to the cartridges and cartomizers that are common in many vape devices.
But in terms of an actual object, what is it? A drip tip is a fairly small, hollow mouthpiece. For a basic idea of how it looks, think of the mouthpiece for an instrument. However, keep in mind that a drip tip is usually a lot more stylized and has a very different function than an instrument mouthpiece!
When you use a drip tip, it allows you to avoid disassembling your device every time you need a vape juice refill. Since the drip tip screws right onto the atomizer, it lets you drip the liquid directly. The liquid then flows through the center more directly onto the heating coil in the atomizer.
When you feed the atomizer directly like this, it lets you “refuel” without needing to remove any pieces first. This is super handy if you’re vaping on the go and may not have the time or space to disassemble and reassemble with ease.
Drip tips are convenient, and as a bonus, they’re usually fairly inexpensive. So giving it a try isn’t going to break the bank, and it’s a fun way to test out new styles of vaping.
How Does it Work?
Once you install your drip tip, it’s time to let the fun begin! Let’s take a minute to talk about how “dripping,” or using a drip tip, actually works.
It’s pretty easy: you drip your vape juice right onto the atomizer via the drip tip.
Since the drip tip is in direct contact with the atomizer, it lets the vape juice flow right to the heat source that transforms it into vapor. The proximity to the coil allows for super-quick heating, and it gives you a nice, strong, consistent hit of vapor.
Can dripping be tricky at first? Yes, a little bit. But it’s like just about anything else in life––once you go through the initial learning curve and experience a little trial and error, it gets a lot easier.
As for the trial and error with drip tips? You might need a little practice in terms of how much juice to add. If you add too much, you can experience overflow; if you let the wick dry out without dripping more juice, you might get a slightly burnt flavor. But after you try it out a few times, you’ll find that it’s not terribly hard to do.
Of course, not all drip tips offer an identical experience. It’s worth noting that the size and shape of the drip tip can impact your overall experience, too.
You could think of the drip tip’s opening as the nozzle of a hose. If you adjust the nozzle to give it a smaller opening, the flow of water will come out in a more concentrated stream; a larger opening will allow for more flow.
It’s sort of like this with your drip tip. The size of the opening will have an effect on the concentration and intensity of the vapor hit.
A drip tip that has a larger opening will help you generate more vapor because the airflow is superior. However, the increased airflow can dilute the intensity of the flavor.
A smaller drip tip opening might not yield as much vapor, but it does tend to give you a greater concentration of flavor.
In terms of design, some drip tips will even feature extra holes throughout the body; some drip tips even feature a honeycomb pattern. It’s all about choosing the option that works best with your preference and style.
Other drip tips offer further personalization by giving you the ability to open and close the holes. This gives you the ability to adjust the airflow. So you could reduce the airflow for a more concentrated flavor, or increase the airflow for more vapor and greater cloud production!
Final note? Always check that the drip tip you’ve chosen is compatible with your vape device. Usually, drip tips will be sold in specific sizes––it’s up to you to make sure that you choose one that will fit with your device. An incorrect size won’t screw in correctly, so it’s worth taking a few moments to confirm you’ve chosen an appropriate size!
Advantages of Drip Tips
Curious about why vape enthusiasts love drip tips? Here are some of the biggest advantages:
Customize Your Vape Experience
Most new vapers don’t realize how much personalization is possible with vaping. Many newbies start with disposables or simpler mods. But as they progress and learn the ropes, the high level of customization becomes more appealing.
You can tailor your experience to your liking by choosing different setups and raw materials. By incorporating accessories like drip tips, you can really cultivate the specific vape experience you’re looking for.
Easy and Convenient
Perhaps one of the biggest draws to using a drip tip? It’s easy and convenient when you’re on the move.
When you use a drip tip, you don’t have to remove a bunch of parts to refill vape juice. You can simply drip the liquid right onto the atomizer, removing several steps from the process. It makes for ease of use while traveling.
Types of Drip Tips
Within the category of drip tips, you’ll find a huge variety of styles and sizes to choose from. The shape, size, material, and length will all have an impact on the temperature and overall production of vapor.
First, let’s talk size. There are two standard sizes for drip tips: 510 and 810. The 510 tips are narrower and allow less airflow (but more concentrated flavor). The 810 tips are wider and allow for more airflow, meaning more cloud production but a less concentrated flavor.
Next, let’s talk material. Vape drip tips can be made out of stainless steel, glass, ceramic, or plastic...let’s explain some of the selling points of each.
Glass: If you’re looking for a drip tip that offers superior functionality but beautiful form too, glass might be the right material for you. It’s naturally heat resistant, and flavor purists are typically quick to insist it’s the best material.
However, if you tend to have butterfingers, it’s worth noting that glass is breakable, so you’ll need to take care of a glass drip tip. Look out specifically for a Pyrex drip tip for greater durability.
Pyrex? Yep, the same stuff that they use to make those heavy duty casserole pans. Pyrex is heat resistant and sturdy, so it’s a great choice for a glass drip tip.
Wood: Looking for a natural and stylish look with your drip tip? Consider wood. It offers a subtle beauty and awesome heat resistance.
Wooden drip tips are available in both regular and wide-bore options. Wood imparts a slight impact on the flavor you’re dripping, so be sure to research the finish and treatment that the wood has undergone.
An inferior finish can leave the wood exposed to heat and moisture while vaping. This could cause the wood to warp, swell out, or lose its shape...or to splinter, which is no fun when you’re using the drip tip with your mouth!
In general, beeswax is a good material for treating a wooden drip tip.
Acrylic and Other Plastics: Acrylic is a versatile and popular material for drip tips. An acrylic drip tip offers great heat resistance, and there’s plenty of variety in terms of shapes and colors.
From short to long options and a myriad of colors from the rainbow, acrylic drip tips are among the most dynamic––and stylish––options for drip tips. As an added bonus, they tend to be super sturdy!
Acrylic isn’t the only plastic used to make drip tips, though. You’ll also find drip tips made out of three other primary plastics: Delrin, Teflon, and Ultem are some common ones.
- Delrin is one of the most common materials for plastic drip tips. It’s sturdy, highly heat resistant, and comes in a variety of color combinations.
- Teflon, which is the same nonstick material in cooking pans, is often a top pick for people who vape at a high wattage. They offer great heat resistance.
- Utem has become more popular in recent years. It’s not only heat resistant, but solvent and flame resistant, too. It makes it a super sturdy and safe material! Utem is generally characterized by color: they’re typically dark yellow or black.
In general, acrylic and plastic tips are available in a range of lengths, sizes, and a huge variety of artful colors. They also have a smooth, pleasant mouthfeel.
Stone: Stone drip tips are artful and expensive looking, but they usually don’t break the bank––they just look fancy.
Marble or other stone gives your drip tip a unique, eye-catching look. They tend to come in wide bore styles, which makes them popular with the cloud chasers of the world.
Note: curious about how to make bigger clouds? Check out this post!
Marble drip tips are limited in terms of color variety, and some options may vary based on natural variation. Usually, this style of drip tip has a stainless steel base for easy connection and the stone mouthpiece is mounted to the base.
Stainless Steel and Other Metals: Metal might not sound like an ideal choice for a drip tip. After all, isn’t it a heat conductor?
True: metal might not be the best choice for high wattage vaping, because the metal can get hot. However, there are plenty of benefits to using a metal drip tip. Some of the most popular options are titanium, copper, and stainless steel.
First, they’re super sturdy. You’re not going to break these simply by dropping them!
When considering a metal drip tip, you’ll want to look for a couple things. First, look for a tip that has a high quality finish. Lower quality metal drip tips can impart, well, a metallic taste to the flavor.
Second, consider a combination of materials. A metal drip tip with a plastic lining could be the perfect combo, allowing for the heat resistance of plastic but the streamlined, fashionable look of metal.
Carbon Fiber: Carbon fiber is a popular material for drip tips, because it’s extremely heat resistant and lightweight. Drip tips made from carbon fiber with metal accents are commonplace these days!
What Drip Tip is Right For You?
When it comes to choosing the perfect drip tip, the good news is that there’s no right or wrong answer. Rather, it’s about figuring out your personal needs and choosing the option that allows you to have the experience you’re looking for.
Some drip tips are specifically designed for particular vape devices. If there is a specific drip tip designed for the vape device you love, that’s often a great starting point. However, most drip tips are suitable for a variety of devices––just make sure it’s the right size.
The good news is that regardless of the style or material, most drip tips are quite affordable. This means that you can experiment with different types to see which one works best for you.
