DCT: Dual Coil Tank. A tank with a dual coil cartomizer inserted in the middle with pre-slots punched into the bottom to so that e-liquid can feed itself into the cartomizer. Simply a long carto tank. Not all carto tanks are DCT
De-wick: Removing the wick from an atomizer.
Debridge: Removing the bridge (and wick) from an atomizer-common practice for people who direct drip.
Dewick: the act of removing the wick from an atomizer.
Dipping: The act of dipping an atomizer into e-liquid.
Direct Dripping: The act of dropping E-Liquid directly on the atomizer coil.
Disposable E-Cig: The disposable e-cigarette usually comes with no charger or way to charge it. It is designed to be used once and to last long enough for you to vape through 1 prefilled cartomizer. It is a 1 piece design. It is said to last up to 24 hours.
DIY: Do It Yourself: Anything that involves doing it yourself. Often involved in mixing e-liquid with its components.
DNA: The DNA is a small variable wattage board built for modders. The board can produce up to 12 watts and can be running in parallel to produce 24 watts.
DOD: abbreviation for Drip On-Demand.
Doubler: A 0% Nicotine, double-strength flavour, intended to be used in 50/50 mixes with nicotine liquid.
Drip: To drip drops of e-liquid into an atomizer.
Drip On-Demand: (DOD) The drip on demand is a an accessory that is used to feed e-liquid into your atomizer by pressing the bottle. Your bottle of e-liquid is placed at the top of the feeder and a spout or tube is branched off for you to insert your drip tip. It’s dripping made easier.
Drip Shield: The drip shield is a round metal or plastic tube that slips over your atomizer. If leaking occurs on your atomizer, the liquid will leak into the drip shield instead of leaking onto your PV. As your atomizer runs out of liquid stored, the liquid in the drip shield will be sucked back into the atomizer to then be vaporized.
Drip Tip: A drip tip is essentially a mouth piece to be used on an atomizer for dripping. The tip has an enlarged opening allowing you to drip e-liquid directly into it. Drip tips are also used on cartomizers, replacing the existing rubber mouth piece that comes with them to provide a more comfortable experience. Drip tips come in many different colors, styles, and materials.
Drip Well: The drip well is typically a bowl shape on a mod where the atomizer female connector sits. The drip well is designed to catch any excess e-liquid that may have leaked from the atomizer.
Dripping: Dripping is the act of allowing e-liquid to manually getting to the heating element by “dripping” e-liquid onto the heating element directly. Some consider “dripping” to provide the best vapor, throat hit and flavor. No e-liquid delivery system is involved from a typical electronic cigarette system.
Dry Burn: Drawing on the the atomiser when there is no cartridge and it is completely dry. This can damage your atomiser so it should be avoided.
Dry Smoking: The process of vaping without a cartridge (see “dry vaping”).
Dry Vaping: Vaping without a cartridge; generally practised when the atomiser is saturated with e-liquid.
Dry Scratchy Hits: This can occur when not enough e-liquid is supplied to an atomizer or cartomizer, resulting in poor vapor and flavor.
Drip Well: The drip well is typically is a bowl shape on a mod where the atomizer female connector resides. The well is designed to catch any excess e-liquid that may have leaked from the atomizer.
Dual Coil Cartomizer: A dual coil cartomizer uses 2 coils and is commonly used in tanks. When working as said, a dual coil cartomizer has the ability to produce twice as much vapor or the same amount twice as fast from the standard.
