Electronic Cigarettes: What It is And How It Works?

Electronic Cigarettes: What It is And How It Works?  

WHAT IS THAT?

The electronic cigarette is a device that produces steam and that gives the smoker a feeling that is very similar to the feeling of  traditional cigarette.
The big difference of using electronic cigarette (Vaping) lies in the fact that there is no combustion process and therefore it doesn’t produce those common carcinogenic substances harmful to the smoker and those around him - a recent study has established that the reaction resulting from the combustion generates over 4,800 different substances of which at least 69 are carcinogenic.
In addition, with the electronic cigarette, the smoker has the possibility to choose between many flavors and even to choose the amount of nicotine, gradually decreasing it or perhaps eliminating it altogether. 
The most distinguished advantage is that, vapers (Who use electronic cigarettes) could vape it in the public most of the time (Bars, stations, restaurant, office, etc)where smoking is forbidden.
 
HOW IS IT MADE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
 
The electronic cigarette consists of: a tank that contains the liquid, an atomizer that transforms the liquid into steam and a battery that serves to make the mechanism work. Each model has variations in these components. We have chosen the best models that could meet the most varied needs (latest technology, longer battery life, more capacious tanks, a wide range of aesthetic customizations of the product ect).
 
COMPONENTS
Section that explains what the different components of an electronic cigarette are for
BATTERY
The battery provides electrical power for the device to operate. Almost all the devices on the market use lithium ion or lithium polymer batteries: these types of batteries allow you to enclose a lot of power in a small space. Smaller models come with built-in battery which is similar to classic cigarettes or pen models. This implies that after about 300 cycles of recharging the battery will be completely exhausted and the whole device will have to be replaced.
With the development of vaping industry, a more advanced “e-cig” released. The so-called "mod", with internal and removable batteries for huge power and recycle purpose.
However, most of the mods for electronic cigarette use mainly rechargeable lithium batteries, in particular models 18650(18350/18500/26650 was less popular, with development of vaping industry, 20700 and 21700 is gaining momentum). The advantage of this type of configuration is very obvious: if the battery dies or is discharged, it can be replaced and you could continue to use the mod. Another advantage is that it is possible to buy wall-mounted chargers (or even USB for cars or PC) to have more batteries charged. The modern vaporizer battery also use the Mini-USB connection, allowing it to be recharged with smart phone chargers.

TANK
The tank is the component that contains the liquid and can be of different sizes and in different materials.
The tanks are very complex: they are designed so that the air can enter but the liquid can not escape.

RESISTANCE
The resistance of an electronic cigarette is the component that allows the liquid to be vaporized; It is composed of a resistive wire and cotton. Each resistance has a different ohm value, that is the unit of measurement of the resistance, the lower this value, the greater amount of steam produced but with greater consumption of the battery, higher power levels will be needed, If the power is low, the amount of steam produced will be less, but in this case there will be a lower consumption of the battery.
 The most common used resistance wires are Kanthal A1, SS316, Nichrome and Ni200. Some types of resistance material such as Ni200 or SS316 to be used with certain types of box mods, as they can only be used with temperature control mode (the SS316 works in both TC and VW), a particular function where it is possible to set various parameters, including functions that allows you to see if your resistance wire is built in correct parameter (If it goes hot, the mod could instantly sense it and at least give a warning). With the connection well built, the resistance wire will be heat up, thus allowing the liquid absorbed by the wick or the cotton to vape.

ATOMIZER
The atomizer is the main component of the electronic cigarette. Inside the atomizer is the building deck, composed of a resistance wire and inside the cotton that will serve to absorb the liquid. By pressing the battery power on button, the resistance wire will be heat up, allowing the liquid absorbed by the cotton to evaporate. There are different types of atomizers:
  • Atomizers with non-rebuildable tanks
  • Atomizers with rebuildable tanks
  • rebuildable dripping atomizers
  • Bottom feeder rebuildable atomizers
The atomizers with non-rebuildable tanks are characterized by the presence of a glass or polycarbonate tank and a pre-set resistance. This resistance is produced by the manufacturer of each atomizer and it is necessary to change it periodically depending on how the atomizer is used. In principle it is replaced when the taste of the liquid is no longer felt, when the quantity of steam generated is no longer satisfied or when it gives a burnt taste.
The atomizers with rebuildable tanks are composed of a glass or polycarbonate tank and a rebuildable base. The peculiarity of these types of atomizers is that it is not necessary to buy the pre-built coils, but it will be necessary to create resistance using resistance wire and cotton. To use these types of atomizers it is necessary to have experience in building coil with resistance.
The rebuildable dripping atomizers are characterized by the absence of a tank. The dripping atomizers are chosen for their excellent cloud production. The components of this atomizer are the base, which must be rebuilt manually, and a top cap. It will therefore be necessary to rebuildable the atomizer with the resistance wire and the cotton. To use it, it is necessary to fill the liquid inside the top cap, without having to unscrew it, directly on the cotton and fill it again every 4/5 drops.
The atomizers rebuildable bottom fedeer are a particular type of atomizers to be used on the bottom feeding box which becomes popular lately. 
This kind of atomizers is to be rebuilt manually with resistance wire and cotton, however the mode of liquid filling is different.  These atomizers comes with a hollow 510 pin which used for transforming liquid from the bottom of the base.
