e-cigarettes explained

An e-cigarette is a nicotine delivery system that works by vapourising an e-liquid by heating a coil/atomizer. The e-cig comes in three parts:

1. Batteries

The e-cigarette battery powers the atomizer which in turn heats up the e-liquid turning it into vapour, ecig batteries come in various sizes depending on the atomizer you are using and whether they are either manual, meaning you activate it with a fire button, or automatic, meaning it activates when you inhale on the device. Manual batteries are preferred as they are easier to control.

Voltage of a battery defines how much power is used. The higher the voltage (as in variable voltage batteries) the hotter the atomiser gets and the heavier / thicker the vapour when you inhale. The mAh (milliamp hours) determines how long the power lasts between charges, the higher the milliamp, the more power the battery holds and the longer it lasts between charges.

2. Tanks

Cartridge, clearomizer, cartomizer, tanks, are all names for the e-liquid container. They contain an atomizer/coil to heat the liquid, some are built into the tank (disposable tank), some are attached by a screw thread in the base (reusable tank), some tanks have replaceable drip-tips (mouth piece). Tanks are filled either from the top or the bottom.

The atomizer contains a wick to supply e-liquid from the tank to the coil, the coil heats up the e-liquid turning it into vapour which you then inhale.

Sub tanks or sub-ohm tanks contain a coil resistance measuring less then 1ohm usually starting at 0.5ohm, you will need to ensure that your battery is capable of firing a sub-ohm tank to use one.

3. E-liquid/E-juice

E-lquid comes in a wide range of flavours and contains a base mix of vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG), flavoring and if applicable nicotine.
E-liquid usually comes in one of three mixes:

High PG: (at least 30%VG/70%PG) This mix provides more of a throat hit and flavour but less vapour production. It is a thinner liquid and designed for starter devices and higher ohm coils. It’s not suitable for sub-ohm tanks as thinner liquid can flood and damage the coils.

High VG: (at least 70%VG/30%PG) This mix provides a far greater vapour production but less throat hit. It is a thicker liquid designed for sub-ohm tanks and rebuildable atomizers, high VG liquid is used by “Cloud chasers.” It is not suitable for higher ohm devices as thicker liquid can clog up and damage the coils.

50/50: (50%VG/50%PG) This mix contains equal parts vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol, and is suitable for any device/coil.

There are many different flavours available including tobacco’s, fruits, desserts etc. Some liquids contain just one flavour, others will be a flavour mix.

Nicotine comes in three strengths; high, medium or low and is measured in mg per 100ml. For example, 12mg strength is 1.2%. You can get e-liquid with no nicotine.
