What is vaping?

If you are a smoker and have tried and tested all methods to quit, then why not try ‘vaping’? ‘Vaping’ is a popular alternative to smoking and allows you to quit cigarettes without the withdrawal symptoms but still obtaining a nicotine ‘hit’. Trying to quit can be difficult but with Vaporizers you are in control. You decide what device (mod/battery/tank) you want, choose your desired flavours, what nicotine strength you need while taking the first step to this healthier alternative to cigarettes. No longer will your clothes smell of stale smoke or having to go outside without worrying about second-hand smoke.


What is an Atomizer?

The atomizer is the most important part of any electronic cigarette. The atomizer is the part that turns the liquid into vapor. It does this by heating a coil that is in contact with the filler material containing the e-liquid. You should always be aware that atomizers could get quite hot when in use.


What is the Difference Between a Clearomizer, Glassomizer, and Cartomizer?

Although all three perform the same general function, they do have certain distinctions. All three devices hole e-liquid, contain atomizer coils, and screw onto a battery. A cartomizer is a device that contains a cotton or cotton-like filament within the tank that absorbs the e-liquid. The liquid is then fed to the coils through this material and evaporates when heated by the battery.

A clearomizer, on the other hand, does not possess any such filament. Rather, the coils used with clearomizers have wicks attached to them. These wicks then absorb the e-liquid and feed it to the atomizer coils. Clearomizers also have large plastic e-liquid reservoirs that can hold various volumes of e-liquid.

Glassomizers function in the identical way a clearomizer does. The sole distinction between a clearomizer and a glassomizer is that the e-liquid reservoir of clearomizers is made of plastic, while that of a glassomizer is made of Pyrex glass. The benefit of this is that unlike plastic tanks, which can erode over time due to the acidity of e-liquids, glassomizers are completely resistant to such erosion.


What is the Difference Between Advanced Personal Vaporizers (APVs) and MODs?

Although the two terms tend to be used interchangeably, they are completely different devices. Advanced Personal Vaporizers (APVs) are electronic devices with wires, circuits, and other electronic components. APVs are generally variable voltage and variable wattage, and have a host of features. When the fire button of an APV is pressed, it sends an electronic signal, making the battery function and heat up the atomizer coil.

A MOD is a mechanical device. They are called Mechanical MODs because they do not contain any circuity or electronic component whatsoever. When the fire button of a mechanical MOD is pressed, is physically makes a connection between the battery and the atomizer coil, causing it to heat up. Mechanical MODs are generally used with Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDAs), not with clearomizers.


What is the Difference Between Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDAs) and Rebuildable Atomizers (RBAs)?

Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers and Rebuildable Atomizers function is virtually the same way. They are generally high quality atomizer bases that allow you to build your own atomizer coils to use with them. Wicks or cotton is then run through the coils in order to absorb the e-liquid dripped onto them, feeding the liquid to the coils. The difference between RRAs and RBAs is that RDAs require you to continuously drip e-liquid onto the cotton or wick material. After a few drags, the liquid dries up, requiring you to drip more. RBAs, on the other hand, have reservoir tanks, allowing you to fill more liquid into them so that dripping continuously is unnecessary.


What is the Difference Between Single-Coil Atomizers and Dual-Coil Atomizers?

An Atomizer head is the part of the electronic cigarette device that contains a wick or filament material of some kind. The material is there to absorb the e-liquid and feed it to the atomizer coil(s). The coils are wires that connect to a base, which in turn connects to the battery. When the battery is deployed, the wires heat up and vaporize the e-liquid.

A single-coil atomizer head has just one single wire that is coiled up with the filament material running through it. A dual-coil atomizer head has two of these coiled wires running to the battery, providing essentially double the amount of vapor when the battery is deployed. The primary benefits of dual-coil atomizer heads are that they produce more vapor and flavor. The primary downside of them is that they tend to burn through e-liquid at a faster rate than their single-coil counterparts.
