WE’RE SURE YOU’VE HEARD OF AN ECIGARETTE BEFORE AND PROBABLY HAVE SEEN MULTIPLE VARIATIONS. THIS CHAPTER IS GOING TO FOCUS ON THE MOST BASIC FUNCTIONS OF eCIGARETTES and how they WORK. BUT DON’T WORRY, WE ARE GOING TO GUIDE you through the most ADVANCED TYPES in future chapters.



ch1-3

Formula:

  • Power: Lithium ion battery
  • Atomizer: heating wire
  • Wick
  • ELiquid: Flavor

-LITHIUM ION BATTERIES ARE WHAT GIVE THE E-CIGARETTES POWER

– ATOMIZERS ARE WHAT HOUSE THE COILS WHICH ARE MADE OF HEATING WIRE. THIS IS WHAT HEATS THE ELIQUID INTO VAPOR

– THE WICK IS WHAT Holds ELIQUID, USUALLY MADE FROM COTTON

– ELIQUID IS WHAT’S HEATED TO CREATE VAPOR. THIS IS WHERE YOU GET FLAVOR AND NICOTINE

ch1-7

IN ORDER TO HAVE A WORKING E-CIGARETTE, YOU NEED ALL 4 COMPONENTS: BATTERY, ATOMIZER, WICK, AND ELIQUID.

TO PUT IT ALL TOGETHER, THE BATTERY POWERS THE ATOMIZER. THE ATOMIZER HOUSES THE COIL AND WICK. THE WICK IS WHAT HOLDS YOUR ELIQUID. ONCE YOU TAKE A DRAW (OR PRESS THE FIRE BUTTON IF IT HAS A MANUAL SWITCH) FROM YOUR E-CIGARETTE, THE COIL HEATS THE LIQUID TURNING IT UNTO VAPOR.

DISPOSABLES ARE THE SIMPLEST FORM OF E-CIGARETTES. THEY’RE an all-in-one, A ONE-TIME USE DEVICE. SO NO RECHARGING, AND NO REFILLING. YOU VAPE IT AND ONCE THERE IS NO MORE ELIQUID, YOU TOSS IT! HENCE THE NAME, DISPOSABLE

CIG-A-LIKES ARE THE NEXT STEP UP from a disposable. THESE ARE ECIGS THAT CLOSELY Resemble A TRADITIONAL CIGARETTE. WITH CIG-A-LIKES THERE IS A Battery, A CARTRIDGE/CARTOMIZER, OR A CLEAROMIZER. THE BATTERIES ARE RECHARGEABLE, THE CARTRIDGES ARE REPLACEABLE, AND THE CLEAROMIZERS ARE REFILLABLE.

EGO BATTERIES ARE ALMOST CIG-A-LIKES BUT THEY’RE SLIGHTLY BIGGER IN WIDTH AND HAVE A DIFFERENT THREADING CONNECTION. THESE BATTERIES ARE RECHARGEABLE AND JUST LIKE THE CIG-A-LIKES, THEY CAN USE A CARTRIDGE/CARTOMIZER OR A CLEAROMIZER.

CARTRIDGES/CARTOMIZERS ARE BASICALLY DISPOSABLE, PRE-FILLED WITH ELIquid, READY TO GO “FILTER” FOR YOUR CIG-A-LIKE OR EGO BATTERY. THESE Contain AN ATOMIZER ATTACHED TO THE BOTTOM AND ELIQUID INSIDE. NOW ONCE THESE no longer contain eliquid, YOU SIMPLY TOSS IT AND TWIST ON A NEW ONE!

CLEAROMIZERS ARE ANOTHER PRODUCT YOU COULD USE FOR CIG-A-LIKES OR EGO BATTERIES. THESE ARE ALMOST LIKE CARTRIDGES/CLEAROMIZERS BUT THESE ARE NOT DISPOSABLE. SO INSTEAD OF HAVING TONS OF CARTRIDGES, YOU’LL HAVE A CLEAROMIZER. But unlike the cartridges, Clearomizers do not have a built-in atomizer. Instead, you purchase coils separately.  Coils typically last up to 2 weeks. as soon as you no longer get the full flavor of eliquid and it tends to have a burnt taste, that is when you want to replace your coil. And ONCE YOUR CLEAROMIZER IS EMPTY, YOU JUST FILL IT BACK UP with more of your favorite eliquid!

MODS ARE E-CIGARETTES FOR MORE ADVANCED USERS. THESE HAVE MANY MANY DIFFERENT SHAPES, SIZES, AND FEATURES. DON’T WORRY, WE’LL GO MORE IN-DEPTH WITH THIS TOPIC LATER.

RBA/RDA’S ARE ATOMIZERS THAT PAIR WITH MODS. RBA STANDS FOR REBUILDABLE ATOMIZER, RDA STANDS FOR REBUILDABLE DRIPPING ATOMIZER, AND there’s also RTA which STANDS FOR REBUILdABLE TANK ATOMIZER. JUST LIKE MODS, WE’LL GO MORE IN-DEPTH WITH THIS TOPIC IN FUTURE CHAPTERS.
