Pre-made e-liquids are manufactured with various tobacco, fruit, and other flavors, as well as variable nicotine concentrations (including nicotine-free versions). The standard notation “mg/ml” is often used in labeling for denoting nicotine concentration, and is sometimes shortened to a simple “mg”.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How do I clean an eCig Tank?” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false” el_id=”1437231068989-ad5664ab-c540″]Almost all tanks come apart into a few piece. To clean a tank simply dump out the eJuice still inside. Then take all the pieces apart and soak in warm or hot water. You should replace the coil at this time by pressing down on it then twisting to remove it.
If you do not remove the coil and discard it, then you must clean it well to get the old flavor off. When you first turn it back on you will also hear a sizzling sound and that would be the water burning off and may take a couple minutes to get the eJuice into the coil.
Once all pieces are cleaned off, dry with paper towel or a few Q-Tips and reassemble.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How Do I Use an eCig?” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false”]An eCigarette creates the vapor by using an atomizer – also known as coil – which heats up the wicks that has eJuice in it. Atomizers have a life span of roughly 10 days each one, at that point usually the wicks have “gunk” build up on them from the sugars in the flavouring. At this point a person may throw out the old one by pressing down on it and twisting while it is in the base of the tank. Make sure not to flip the tank the wrong way when filling/changing the atomizer coil since eJuice will most likely spill out.
To use a device most of them turn on by pressing the firing button 3 or 5 times depending on the model. To take a “puff” you must hold down the button for as long as you are inhaling. Many people try and take quick puffs like a cigarette but this is not the case with these devices. Since the coil takes a second to heat up the average puffer goes slow for about a 2 second pull. Once done with your puff you will let go of the button to keep it from burning more eJuice.
Many Devices have a variable setting, to change the Voltage or Wattage of the device. Turning this up or down will determine how hot and how quick the coil will heat up. The higher the voltage the hotter the coil gets. Sometimes people go too high and cause the coil to give off a burning taste, but this is just because the juice can’t keep up with how quick it is burning. When you are done taking your puffs you may turn the device off with the same amount of presses to the firing button. Whether it was 3 or 5.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What are the parts inside an eCig or Electronic Cigarette? ” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false” el_id=”1437231137789-20261df8-034d”]An electronic cigarette (e-cig or e-cigarette), consists of the following:
- Rechargeable Battery – Typically Lithium-based and charges via a USB plug or adaptor
- Microprocessor – a built-in chip that triggers an atomizer to allow for heat the eJuice into a vapor
- Atomizer – a heating coil that heats ejuice into a vapour
- Cartridge or Clearomizer – a ‘tank’ that holds eJuice
- Sensor ‘button’ – a built-in detection to activate the microprocessor when pressed or triggered
- LED light – an indicator light to show when the microprocessor is in use, heating the coil to turn eJuice into vapor.
Great but what does this have to do with an eCig? With some of our atomizers and cartomizers, we offer a resistance/ohm option. Basic explanation: The lower the ohm, the quicker the atomizer heats up. This translates to more vapor and possibly shorter lifespan and increased chance of experiencing an unpleasant burnt taste.
Generally speaking, low resistance atomizers (1.5-1.8ohm) are intended to give the user an experience similar to a higher voltage setup (4.3V-6V) using standard voltage output batteries (3.2V-4.2V). Resistance is not as important when using a variable voltage device because the user is able to increase or decrease output voltage accordingly. However, this is not always the case.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why does my vapour taste burnt?” style=”default” size=”md” open=”false” el_id=”1439853274211-096b782f-80c9″]There are three main reasons why your vapour may taste burnt. The first reason is that when you fill the tank with liquid and if you have a fresh coil you will need to let it saturate in the eJuice so it has something to vaporize. This is very important because if you have a cotton coil, you may burn the actual coil if it is not properly saturated and thus would cause the coil to become useless. The second reason is that the voltage/wattage may be set to high for the coil, and it is not wicking fast enough to keep up with the high temperature. And the last reason is that the coil may be burnt out, this happens after a fair amount of usage per coil/atomizer and it means it is time to replace the coil.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row]
