An E-cig, as some will call it, has three primary parts. They are the atomizer, cartridge and the battery unit. This device will use heat to vaporize the propylene glycol liquid and that is how the mist is formed. The user can then exhale the mist just like he would with regular smoke. You can think of the heating process as the same way that a humidifier creates its smoke. The heater that heats the liquid is called an Atomizer. E-Cigarettes Atomizer will eventually need to be replaced because they wear out. Once this occurs the electronic cigarette will not work properly, and the atomizer will have to be replaced.
The cartridge also works as the mouth piece. The cartridge is a small plastic container with openings on each end. It holds an absorbent sponge that is saturated with the liquid solution that is to be vaporized. You will always be replacing these because once the solution runs out you will need to insert another in order for your electronic cigarette to work. Some devices can be used without the cartridge by directly allowing the user to pour the e-juice into the atomizer. This technique is called "dripping" and requires a special mouthpiece to make the process easier.
The liquid contains the nicotine that your body will ingest. E-juice is the name of the solution used. Some of the flavors that are available are tobacco, menthol and the user can even try some of the specialty flavors that some companies have managed to manufacture. Some of these flavors include chocolate, vanilla and various fruit flavors. There are also specialty liquids that try to mimic the flavor of popular brands of cigarettes. It is also important to know that each liquid has a specific and designated concentration of nicotine. They range from 6 mg to 36 mg. gradually lowering the amount of nicotine over time can eliminate the need to use an electronic cigarette.
You will find that all of the batteries within these ecigarettes are rechargable lithium batteries. The largest part of this device usually tends to be the battery. There is an airflow sensor within this battery that triggers the batter to turn on when itís in use. This was designed by manufacturers to prevent the battery from overheating. These devices have different charging methods but some of the more popular ones are AC outlet and USB cables. The final option for a battery is an e-cigarette that is USB-tethered. These E-cigarettes require no battery, but will not work unless they are plugged into a USB port.
Even though many if not most of these electronic devices are designed to look like actual cigarettes there are some with very cool and unique designs. They also come in two different variations, reusable or disposable. The reusable electronic cigarettes come with refillable parts to allow for someone to continue using the same e-cigarette. The refillable parts are available to buy at the same locations that the electronic cigarettes were purchased. The disposable ones can only be used until the solution runs out. These cannot have the solution refilled therefore it becomes useless.
