Continuing the series of articles for e-cig beginners I thought of giving a quick and easy to understand picture of a e-cigarette cartridge.
Firstly, I have to say that there is no standard definition of an e-cigarette since different manufacturers use different designs and incorporate a range of ingredients. Thus, having in mind that there are so many differences we can’t put our finger on a standard definition.
Secondly, and getting down to business, the one thing we know for sure is that the majority of e-cigarettes consist of:
– A cartridge containing a substance to attract and absorb water molecules from the air;
– A long narrow object similar to a pipe that liquid or gas can move through into which a cartridge is inserted and through which the smoker takes a wiff.
– A battery powered heating piece from which the solution is drawn, causing the attracting and absorbing substance to vaporize and form a kind of a smoke cloud.
