What is an Electronic Cigarette?

Electronic cigarettes electronically replace cigarette smoking, creating a vapor fog that mimics the tobacco smoking process. There are many types for those on a tight budget or wanting to loot.

 What are the Advantages of e-Cigarettes Compared to Regular Cigarettes?

Regular cigarette smoke contains more than 4,000 chemicals, including 43 carcinogens and 400 other toxins. These include nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic and DDT.

Electronic cigarettes are flammable, so they are free of ash, smoke, tar and carcinogens. They also don’t smell like regular cigarettes (live!) and, as many believe, they don’t bother passers-by.

These topics and much more are covered in detail in our popular guide to Steam Mythology.

 What is a Nebulizer

There are many types of atoms in the evaporation world today. They sit on an e-cigarette battery and use heat to evaporate the e-liquid. They can be self-contained and disposable, and can be reconfigured for use with adjustable spools or for skilled papers who want complete control over their evaporation experience.

 What is a Coil?

This is the heart of the evaporator. Usually when you use a makeup spool (formerly called the turnstile), you have a small thread wrapped in cotton. The cotton is saturated with e-liquid and when the chamber is heated by the battery, the e-liquid is converted into vapor like Nordic Spirit.

Coil resistance is measured in ohms, which is the amount of current a coil can pass through. The lower the resistance, the more heat is generated, so the more steam and the stronger the flavor of the juice. The downside is that you get more e-liquid and have a shorter battery life.

 What is Subom Vaporation?

You’ve probably heard this phrase in the e-cigarette community. If you’ve ever seen a paper friend make huge clouds, you’ll probably fail. A few years ago, sub-ohm evaporation was reserved for those who made their own coils and modified batteries. Nowadays, there are usually sub-ohm tanks, off-the-shelf coils and suitable stock batteries like Vype.

There are two main ways to increase the amount of steam coming out of the coil. First, increase the battery capacity to increase heat. However, there are limitations on how much energy you can put through the coil before generating more steam and heat. This will burn your roll.

The resistance of the sub-ohm coil is less than 1 ohm. Combining a thicker wire with a stronger airflow allows more energy to be used before generating excess heat. The thicker the thread, the more surface it contacts with the cotton (wick), leading to more e-liquid evaporation and larger cloud formation.
