When it comes to e-cigarettes, most users only really have to concern themselves with three simple things: the liquid consumed by the e-cigarette, the device’s battery and the evaporator. Understanding how each of these work can give you a much better idea of what works for you, and can inform your buying decision in a much more intuitive way as a result. In this article we take a look at these three aspects of the humble e-cigarette to make you into a pro in no time at all.
The typical e-cigarette in Australia uses liquid that contains quite a few components, but perhaps the most important of these is vegetable glycerin. Vegetable glycerin is an organic compound that is both colorless and odorless despite its sweet taste and one of the most important widely used compounds in the pharmaceutical industry. the other components of e-cigarette liquid include propylene glycol, flavoring agents, water and ethanol, all very commonly available materials that are non-toxic. Although these elements are for the most part safe, it’s still a very good idea to purchase liquid from reputable suppliers to ensure that they have nothing suspect added. For many e-cigarette smokers, evaporators can be a lot more confusing (and for good reason). Evaporators are basically the vessel that holds the liquid, and within the evaporator is the heating element that is used to heat the liquid into vapor. There are two types of evaporators that e-cigarettes are equipped with: those with removable heating elements, and those without. Those without a removable element should be used until the taste of vapor changes and then discarded, but those with a replaceable one will just require you to invest in a new heating element.
Understanding batteries in e-cigarettes
Batteries for e-cigarettes can also vary to a wide degree, with different capacities allowing people to use their e-cigarettes for often vastly different amounts of time. Although you might immediately think that a larger capacity is better, this is not necessarily the case – larger batteries will mean a larger e-cigarette, and for some people transporting a bulkier object around will not be ideal. With this in mind, many people will have to determine the right balance between battery charge and portability. It is also possible for e-cigarettes to have customizable voltage and amperage values which will affect the production of vapor. For people who want large, concentrated amounts of vapor, these features can be highly valuable, but they also come at a higher cost. Temperature control is another feature that offers even more customizability, but all of these features can serve to quickly confuse a person new to e-cigarettes, rather than enabling to get the most out of the product.
What vape suits you?
Although many people believe that vapes are all one and the same, this is actually far from the case. The large variability in features can mean that different people end up having very different vaping experiences. For this reason, doing a lot of research and understanding what your specific needs might be can help a lot in you determining what is the best choice for you. with vapes being quite pricey items to begin with, you may otherwise be throwing money down the drain!
