What is a Personal Vaporizer (Electronic Cigarette)?
What comprises of an Electronic Cigarette?Generally, an e-cigarette consists of three distinct parts.
- A battery or a wire to draw power via a USB port
- The heating element contained in an atomiser.
- Liquid storage enclosed in a cartridge.
How does the electronic cigarette work?We now know that cartridge holds the Tobacco flavored e-liquid juice, so when this cartridge is connected to the vaporizer the, atomizer’s bridge comes in contact with the cartridge. The juice then gets collected in atomizer’s steel mesh reservoir by absorption of juice via atomizer’s bridge which uses gravitational pull and capillary action for the same. Once the juice is collected an input is required.
On inhaling this electronic cigarette the liquid is pulled from atomizer’s reservoir into ceramic pot, an aromatic polyimide wick, situated inside the ceramic pot then absorbs the liquid. Parallely, the device heats up the wick and the liquid until it starts vaporising.
The vapour made is drawn up through the e-cigarette and exhaled by the mouthpiece.
Some Personal Vaporisers also come with a manual switch, this switch only vaporizes liquid already contained in the ceramic pot, there is no more liquid drawn or absorbed by the wick until the user actually starts “sucking” the device.
How to use an electronic cigarette?Among some common questions, the most common one is “Is an electronic cigarette a complete replacement of a normal real cigarette and can I smoke it in the same way?
Well, the answer is “No” as a real cigarette require pretty hard and short puffs form the user while an e-cigarette gives best results with slower and controlled puffs also, when a normal cigarette requires 2-3 second of drag, an e cigarette gives good results with a drag of 4-5 seconds.
