What is an Electronic Cigarette?

All electronic cigarettes require a battery. E-cigarettes require batteries with voltages higher than a normal 1.5 volt battery. Electronic cigarettes use a 3.7 volt Lithium Ion battery that is rechargeable. They can be disposable and range in a number of sizes.

The atomizer is the functional part of the electronic cigarette. This is simply a device that heats the fluid to a temperature that creates a fine vapor when air is drawn though it. There are a number of types of atomizers but the all have the same function - change the fluid into an inhalable vapor.

There are many types of cartridges, some which include the atomizer - known as a cartomizer, some pre-filled, some that can be filled and some known as tanks that hold only fluid. The majority of cartridges that are sold in stores have a material that soaks up the fluid and has a wire that runs along this material. We do not recommend this solution as it is costly and the experience is not on par with tank systems.
