What are Electronic cigarettes?
Electronic cigarette (also known as e-cigarettes or personal vaporizers) is a battery-powered device that provides inhaled doses of nicotine by way of a vaporized solution, which is an alternative to smoked tobacco products.
All Electronic cigarettes operate using the same principals. A battery powers a coil which heats a liquid solution known as e-liquid. This produces a vapor which is then inhaled.
What are parts and fuctions of an Electronic cigarettes?
1. A battery or wire that draws power from a USB port) .The battery powers the atomizer coil producing a smoke like fog.
2. An atomizer: The portion of electronic cigarette hardware that heats Smoke Juice into a vapor this part is potentially the most critical part for an e-cigarette and can be the main culprit if you are experiencing poor vapor production or are experiencing a burnt or "electric" taste while vaping.
3. A cartridge (the part containing the liquid storage material): The cartridge holds the liquid. When the cartridge is inserted into the e-cig, the cartridge filler (polyester soaked in e-liquid/juice) makes contact with the atomizer’s bridge. Using gravity and capillary action, juice is absorbed via the atomizer bridge into the atomizer’s steel mesh reservoir where it sits. This is when user input is required.
Note: Some e-cigs combine the atomizer and cartridge into one piece. These are generally referred to as “cartomizers”
Is Vaping right for me? Which cigarette should I purchase?
If you're an adult smoker who does not intend to quit right now, then the answer is yes. Then what should you need? When it comes to choosing the hardware necessary to get started, the most convenient and economical route is to purchase one of the starter kits. Our start kits will come with everything you need to get started in terms of batteries, tanks, atomizers, cartomizer, clearomizers, etc. These items are completely compatible and interchangeable with one another. Once you have a good understanding of the components and what their fuctions are, you will be able to easily upgrade your device in the future!
What is in Eliquid? What is PG and VG?
The liquid used in electronic cigarettes, often called E-Liquid, is usually a base mixture of Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG) with flavoring and/or nicotine added according to preference.
Both PG and VG are considered GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA and EPA. Both are widely used in a variety of products for human consumption. PG is associated with a stronger “throat hit” but with less visible vapor, whereas VG has a sweetish taste and produces a much more visible vapor. Some vapers find PG irritates their throat and lungs and choose to use VG based e-liquids instead. Some e-liquids contain a blend of both ingredients to balance out the characteristics of each.
However, it is recommended for most standard devices that no more than 15-20% VG be used in the E-Liquid to provide a boost in vapor production without the negative effects of higher VG concentrations; in SubOhm systems at least an 80% VG is recommended, though some Premium eLiquid brands that manufacture 50/50 blends that work well in both drippers and standard tank systems.
