    Could anyone help.
    I have a requirement to block both air inlet holes in a RN4081 atomizer.
    If I inserted a mouthpiece into the atomizer, would the airflow requirements of the atty be satisfied.
    Hard to explain check picture for airflow diagram.

    Just to clarify the yellow block represents the coil.
    The airflow entering the atty would be through a straw sized inlet. 1 to 1.5mm dia approx.

    Disclaimer: I don't know the 4081 atty so I may be talking rubbish. :D

    As it's drawn, the airflow wouldn't go beneath the coil. It'd only go as far as the air channels in the mouthpiece and then straight out again.

    It should work to some extent if you pipe the air directly to the bottom of the atty, as close to the internal airtake hole as possible. A pain in the neck to do though.

    I'm FAR from an expert so I may be completely wrong.... Just thinking out loud here....

    What if you put another air hole (say on the opposite side from the stock one?) and then you built a "sleeve" that wrapped the atty like your diagram is showing just with an air flow channel on both sides? So from the top it'd be oval shaped. This would double the air flow coming in from the sides of the atty, therefore making up for the loss of flow from the bottom.

    If I'm completely wrong = ignore this post
    If I'm even partial correct = I'll be floored!
