How E-Cigs work

E-cigarettes, also known as electronic cigarettes and vaporizer cigarettes are devices that emit doses of vaporized nicotine that are inhaled. The device is battery-operated and can also emit non-nicotine vaporized solutions.

As you first begin to learn about vaping, you may see multiple e-cigs that may not be like the first one you purchased. Many people don’t realize that there are different types of e-cigs. Some are made to be discreet, while others are made to simply perform.

There are 5 components that make up an electronic cigarette.

• Battery- powers the device

• Tank-holds the e-liquid

• Atomizer/coil- turns the e-liquid into vapor

• Drip Tip- hollow mouthpiece that screws directly onto the atomizer

• E-liquid –liquid that fuels the e-cig

DEVICE SELECTION

Beginner 

We recommend a 2-piece setup or starter kit. This will consist of an eGo style battery and a clearomizer tank. This will be the easiest on maintenance, all you will have to do is replace the prebuilt coil every 7-14 days (varies depending on how often you use this device), and charge the battery with the USB charger provided with the battery.

eGo Style 

• Internal battery

• Prebuilt coils

• Most common e-cig used by beginner vapers

Intermediate 

We recommend a MOD with a clearomizer tank, this will get you used to external batteries and their maintenance. 

MOD 

• Large external batteries

• Longer battery life

• Varying levels of performance

Types of Mods

• Regulated has a chip that allows you to use voltage, wattage or temp control to tune in on the perfect vape for the user.

• Unregulated allows you to use the power of the battery. The lower the charge the lower the power. 

Clearomizer Tank 

• Widely used by all vapers, no matter the experience level

• Typically has a replaceable prebuilt coil or a disposable prebuilt coil

Expert 

We recommend a MOD and a rebuildable atomizer. At your own risk build coils and understand AMPs and OHMs for the batteries you will be using because all batteries can differ in specs.

Rebuildable Atomizer 

• Best suited for experienced and more advanced vapers

• Build and wick your own coil

DEVICE MAINTENANCE

Prebuilt Atomizer/Coil

Be sure the resistance is compatible for the battery you will be using and when using a new or dry coil always put 15 to 20 drops on the cotton before use. Change every 7 to 14 days to prevent burning out the coil.   

Rebuildable Atomizer/Coil

Ensure that you understand OHMs Law along with the specifications for the battery you are going to use before building any coil, along with the relationship between voltage, resistance and wattage.
