A dripper is a rebuildable atomizer without a tank. In this artical, you will learn something about dripper

A dripper is a rebuildable atomizer without a tank. An obvious disadvantage for the e-liquid autonomy, but largely offset by very real advantages to the vape.

It’s the lack of a tank that defines the dripper. It is necessary to directly soak the cotton by regularly pouring a few drops of e-liquid into it, an action that is called “to drip” in English … hence the name. This definition is fuzzier than it seems.


The drippers do not have a tank like the atomizers, it is obvious. But some have a tank, the lower part designed to put the cotton, one centimeter deep. On a dripper in 25 mm diameter, you can finally have 1.5 ml or more of liquid, which is very close to some sprayers that have 2 ml capacity. It is indeed the action of “dripper”, i.e. to pour the liquid directly on the cotton, which differentiates the drippers from other types of sprayers. The question is, therefore: what interest can there be in imposing the constraint to dripper regularly when there are atomizers whose tank can easily get rid of it.

Things to remember

The drippers are:

  • a rebuildable, tankless atomizer
  • a direct filling of the e-liquid on the wick
  • a fairly compact format


The absence of a tank makes it possible to save space, that’s obvious. Some drippers like the Mulciber or Concorde for example are tiny, and no spray can compete in terms of compactness. And even if large drippers are larger than small atomizers, to have a large combustion chamber and a larger tray, they would necessarily be even larger with a tank. The compactness is in any case to be put into perspective since the dripper requires a bottle of liquid next to it. The size of the hole doesn’t necessarily benefit from it, but the setup (battery and sprayer) does.

Changing e-liquid

An indisputable advantage of this one, the dripper allows for an easy change of liquid. You just have to wait until the cotton is almost dry, which happens quickly, and you can change the liquid in the simplest way possible by soaking it with another one. The first puffs will keep an aftertaste of the previous liquid, but this will pass quickly if the two liquids are close enough. The method is at its limit to go from fresh mint to a gourmet, for example, the first one will remain polluted by the second one and you will have to change the cotton and rinse the dripper for such a radical change. The operation remains in any case easier and faster than having to clean an atomizer, so disassemble and reassemble it then. In this case, two drippers, one for the greedy e-liquids and one for fruity will settle the matter and allow you to change the liquid for each category.

Rendering flavors

It’s their rendering of flavors that have made the reputation of drippers, at least those whose realization goes in this direction. It’s hard to match Hadaly, Mulciber, Flave, Kennedy, and Concorde on their playing field. The design, for example, not having a chimney that runs up the length of the reservoir, is one of the reasons for the dominance of the dribblers in this field. The requirement and experience of the manufacturers are another. And in fact, the best flavor-oriented drippers are unrivaled in their ability to savor all the nuances of liquids.

Vapor production

A very long time ago (about three years, which is an eternity in the vape), the only way to get the most steam was to use a dripper. Unicig’s Mutation Xs, among others, were unbeatable. But contrary to the subtle alchemy of flavor rendering, steam production mainly only requires a lot of power on big rigs, a big airflow, and a good liquid supply to pass the 100% VG. It is on this last point that the drippers keep an advantage over the atomizers, but the difference is reduced to very little, some atomizers now cashing 200 W without flinching.

The bottom feeder

A dripper requires a bottle of liquid nearby, and with the bottom feeder, it is in the box. There is an opening to squeeze (squonker) it to push the liquid through a pipe through the cap. It will go through a hole through the connection of the box and then through the connection of the dripper to get into the tank and soak the liquid. This requires a bottom feeder box, with a bottle, and a compatible dripper. This solution is practical and allows autonomy between 8 and 11 ml in general. Most drippers now come with a bottom feeder option, i.e. a pierced pin that can replace the standard pin. The Serpent BF for example is only available as a bottom feeder.

Another way to tap

Compactness is potentially the only argument for drippers compared to RDTA sprayers, which are a kind of dripper with a tank underneath. The atomizing part can be the same as the dripper, the spraying part will be the same as the dripper, too. This is also the main reason for the success of RDTA in recent months. Nevertheless, the dripper is also, and perhaps even more importantly, another way of vaporizing, more meticulous, more attentive. We can vaporize without really paying attention to it with an atomizer and its tank. By asking to add liquid regularly, the dripper imposes a more conscious vape, so to speak. We tend to take care of its assemblies, to optimize and maintain them on a dripper. On the one hand, because you have it in front of you, but also because the approach is different. A bit like with mechanical mods, to which they are easily associated, drippers easily represent or contribute to this other way of racing.

The history of the dripper in 3 dates

2013: the appearance of the first tankless atomizers, including the Origen by Hungarian Norbert, whose design was revolutionary, and the flavors increased tenfold.  Mystery surrounds this character that no one has ever seen. The Origen V3 is still a reference. 2014: the Filipino modeler Paradigm Modz releases the Magma RDA, which becomes a reference in terms of flavor rendering thanks, in particular, to the airflow holes located just below the resistances. 2015: the American manufacturer Insignia Design Group unveils the Velocity RDA. Its tray innovates with 2 posts and 4 holes and quickly becomes famous. This system has since been included in most atomizers designed to produce large clouds.

Frequently asked questions about drippers

Below is a list of frequently asked questions about drippers. If you don’t find an answer to your question, feel free to leave your question in the comment box below.

How do I choose my dripper?

The choice of a dripper should first and foremost be guided by your style of vape. Do you want a dripper for direct or indirect draught? Do you want a dripper for huge steam production, or on the contrary to feel all the aromas of your e-liquids? Would you like a dripper with a very airy draft or on the contrary a very tight draft? You will have to answer all these questions to know which model to choose, also considering the budget you are willing to invest in it, some drippers cost up to 8 times more than the first prices.

How do you clean your dripper?

Cleaning a dripper is relatively simple as you simply remove the cotton from your resistance and run the entire dripper under warm water. Don’t forget, however, to separate it from your battery!

What resistance to make for your dribbler?

The choice of the resistance that you are going to mount on your dripper is completely personal. It will vary according to what you expect from your equipment, especially if you want to hunt for flavors or steam. Hundreds of resistances can be made on a dripper, the simplest being to test until you find the resistance that best suits your style of vape. Just remember that to keep it simple, the lower the resistance value, the lower the value of the resistance, the greater the vapor production, the more the feeling of flavor will be put aside.
