    I was thinking the other night while swapping out a gunked up atomzier head how cool it would be if someone could come up with a "fuel injection" kind of atomizer system that would directly mist a coil with the ideal amount of juice and eliminate the need for wicks. You could use a spring to create the pressure and the misting head could be electrically actuated to both accurately get the right amount of juice as well as time the mist delivery to match coil heating to avoid burning, with some kind of adjustment to control misting volume to account for varying density/viscosity of juices. Perhaps a cleaning mode (with water or some other appropriate liquid) that could be used to "wet burn" any residue that might build up. Of course microprocessor controlled power output and maybe even regulated coil temperature to ensure the optimum vapor production and minimize gunking of the coils.

    Am I crazy or is this possible?

    Sounds fun but id imagine the injector nozzle would continually clog and partially clog causing spray pattern issues or flow stoppage all together.

    Look into the Reo grand same basic idea without electronics to fail at worst possible time its a manual feed

    Actually... a ceramic/ni foam atty on a bottom feeder like a Reo or Vmod is not too far off... the differences are, you are the "pump", and a wick/juice distributor is still required as the juice is not pre-atomized prior to being vaporized.

    I was thinking about having the heat coil under a thin heat-conductive layer of glass with a slight bowl-shape and a dropper that fills the shallow bowl when the ignition button is pushed or slid up. Still saving up some money to buy enough of that heat-conductive glass to experiment with. Not doing a good job of saving though since I just laid down $200.00 for an iTaste 134...

    There may be some kind of diode or transistor or something (I don't know circuitry that well) that produces a variable level of heat and could be easier to maintain than a coil.
