The site will teach you how to design a coil of your own, and will offer packages that include connections for your existing vape system.
This is in the right direction, and I believe that most people who have constructed a vape coil using kit components will find them underwhelming. Not only do they lack capability, but they often result in poorer vaping performance than a single coil, which is good news for me.
This isn’t the only new effort to build an RDA coil, though.
China has also launched its own RDA coil standard. The China Authority for Information Technology Standards has announced that “[o]ther lithium-ion batteries produced in China, will be subject to quality standards.”
According to IDGNews, the standards will be based on the standard V0032, which is used in the Chinese “I-Zone 2.0” design that was recently announced. The I-Zone 2.0 allows the self-contained coil to function like a thermal engine, so that the heating process can be manipulated during the charge/discharge cycle. According to IDGNews, Chinese researchers have patented a design that is based on these new standards.
I’m curious to know how well the I-Zone 2.0 design stacks up against the V-Zone, and how developers will develop it. I’m sure they’ll come up with some creative implementations of the new standards, but as the difference in technology is so large, the I-Zone design will have some difficulties competing with V-Zone.
That said, I think that the Chinese system is going to be safer and simpler to use than anything we’ve seen so far, thanks to the Chinese government’s decision to ban production of battery-back lit devices with a specific number of non-rechargeable cells. The individual cells will be chemically inert; hence, no electrocution. The new standard requires one component, the battery cell, to be back lit only by the specific number of non-rechargeable cells, which is much safer than the current situation. And I imagine that even in the absence of a regulation that eliminates the back lit cell, as long as battery capacities are not overcapacitive, there’s nothing really wrong with flicking on the light that powers the battery, just as battery systems have always been reactive with the battery.
This sounds great, but it raises all sorts of questions: Will it be possible to “design” your own back lit cells by count of their not burn? What will the battery count be? How small are the blocks? How many are required? And how can one asymptote them in electric circuitry? That may not be such a good idea, though, because those close quarter interfaces between units and the circuitry of the device they power are messy, and susceptible to shorting. Given how uncommon this feature is, they will be trickier to deal with than in a rechargeable system. That means it will be extremely important to ensure that the power supply problems associated with laptop batteries are not reproduced in battery packs for vaping devices.
I suppose we can’t really be sure of the answer to the first question, but I know that the electric components of vaping devices are very difficult to design, given the infamously rich design framework provided by, well, the electronic cigarette. A top notch guy who is familiar with the mess the Taiwanese have made is poised to unveil a fully customizable new system. It will be interesting to see how the battery requirements evolve.
Vaping can be a very silly business. The moment you have the luck to acquire a quality design, however, you should take advantage of it.
