What is a Drip Tip?
A drip tip is a small vape accessory, used in place of the traditional cartomizer or cartridges often paired with vape devices. The name “drip tip” comes from their original function, allowing vapers to manually drip their vape juice through the drip tip and directly onto the wicks and coils (a vape technique known simply as “dripping”). Even though many of today’s drip tips can be used on non-dripper tanks, the original name is here to stay. Usually, drip tips are an easy, inexpensive way to change up the look and feel of your vape experience.
510 Drip Tips and 810 Drip Tips: What’s the Difference?
When you’re shopping for drip tips, you’ll generally notice that they are labeled as one of two primary types: 510 and 810. These are the two most common drip tip sizes, with each one designed to serve the needs of a specific type of draw (mouth-to-lung versus direct-to-lung). A 510 tip is fairly narrow, while an 810 is on the wider side.
For years, the 510 drip tip was the choice of most vapers. However, today’s 510 drip tips are usually used for restricted lung and mouth-to-lung vaping. While you can find 510 drip tips that have a slightly wider center channel (bore) than others, the average size is about 8.5 mm in diameter, measured at the base.
The 810 drip tip style first emerged as a popular pairing for RDAs, earning a reputation for their ability to support serious vapor production. An 810 drip tip will generally have a much wider bore than a 510, with a base that measures 12.5 mm on average. For sub-ohm vapers and drippers, an 810 drip tip is usually their go-to option.
