In this article we're comparing the SOURCE orb + ceramic double coil titanium atomizers and the new SOURCE terra atomizers. SOURCE terra offers awesome flavor, but many still prefer the double coil.
First lets take a look at the difference between their construction:
Here we have the SOURCE terra:
In the picture the terra is fitted onto a SOURCE micro globe attachment. The construction is full ceramic, meaning no materials are going to be vaped off of a coil.
Here we have the SOURCE orb + ceramic double coil:
As you can see, the coils are wrapped around the ceramic rods, and materials are vaped by the titanium coils heating up.
How does each hit differ?
SOURCE orb + ceramic double coil hits harder at a higher temperature, resulting in a harsher, more medicating hit. The double coil also has additional airflow due to its construction that results in a more "instant" hit.
SOURCE terra hits softer and turns your SOURCE orb into the ultimate low temp, full flavor vape pen. It should be noted that SOURCE terra should be heated up without hitting for 3-4 seconds, as it takes longer to heat up than the double coil titanium. It is recommended to run SOURCE terra at 4.5-4.8V.
Which is better for what types of concentrate?
We had our staff try both atomizers on all 4 types of concentrated available, these were their picks:
Stable Shatter: SOURCE terra
Unstable Shatter: SOURCE orb + ceramic double coil
CO2: SOURCE terra
It's hard to say one is absolutely better than the other, but the SOURCE terra seemed to win out just slightly due to the great flavor. This may have to do more with tolerances as well, since the double coil is similar to an "on the go" dab rig as far as strength.
To Sum it Up........
The SOURCE terra offers an amazing flavor at a low temp, but does not rip as hard as the SOURCE orb + ceramic double coil. The double coil keeps its title as the dab rig on the go, while the SOURCE terra offers true wax connoisseurs a flavorful low temp experience.
