At one time, the EGO-T electronic cigarette was one of the most popular ecigs on the market. For the most part, it performs well. It is of fine quality as far as older ecigarette models go and the large capacity batteries make it possible to enjoy puffing on it for several hours or even days before you have to recharge.
The Components of the EGO-T eCigarette
The EGO-T ecigarette is a three-piece design, consisting of an atomizer, battery and cartridge. The battery is the power supply, the atomizer is what vaporizes the eLiquid and the cartridge is where the liquid is held as it is wicked into the atomizer.
All of the eGo ecigarette models use the exact same battery type. This means that the batteries are totally interchangeable among all eGo models. In addition, because the eGo|510 threading system, they are really easy to upgrade.
The eGo-T battery does require manual activation. All this means is that you will have to press and hold down the button as you take a draw. Some users may see this as a bother, but others will quickly adapt into a routine and actually prefer it over the automatic activation that is featured on other models. The primary reason for this is that with the manual control, you get considerably more control over the warmth and length of each draw that you take from the ecig.
The EGO-T batteries are available in two different sizes, which include:
The larger the number, the larger the battery and longer battery life. However, all of the batteries are the same size in diameter, as only the length increases with the milliamp hour capacity.
The EGO-T ecigarette batteries are also available in various colors, including:
The atomizer, commonly referred to as “the atty”, holds it all together in terms of assembly. One end fits into the cartridge, while the other end of the atomizer screws into the battery. Although it is encased in a small package, this is actually quite a complex piece. If not used correctly, the taste and performance of the ecigarette may be affected.
In the EGO-T model, the coil that heats the eLiquid is wrapped around a fiberglass wick inside a small chamber, which is where the liquid is held. The eGo-T is different from other models because rather than use a metal mesh bridge to draw the eLiquid to the wick, it features a hollow spike that has a wick inside of it that is right in the center of the atomizer. The tank cartridge is punctured by the spike, allowing the liquid to wick to the coil.
The cartridge is the mouthpiece of the eGo-T electronic cigarette. The eGo-T is the first ecig to incorporate auto-dripping the eLiquid onto the atomizing coil in order to offer the best vaporing experience. The eGo-T was modeled after the Mega-eGo and is the first ecigarette to use tank cartridges for storing the eLiquid instead of tissue.
Reception of the EGO-T eCigarette
Unfortunately, there were a number of issues with the tank system used by the eGo-T model. They are no longer among the best ecig options, primary due to leaking.
Many other models have been developed that are superior to the eGo-T. These include the new Clearomizers and Glassomizers with the EGO-ProTanks, H2s, CE4, CE5 and CE6. All of these models do what the EGO-T was initially intended for, except they perform much better. The larger tanks on these models produce more vapor and do not leak. It is strongly recommended that you choose one of these models over the out-of-date eGo-T.
