E-Cigarettes 101

With the numerous amount of different e-cigarette brands these days, a person just getting started with e-cigarettes, it can be overwhelming. Lucky for you, the majority of e-cigarettes function the same way and on a basic level, so let's see how they work.


E-Cigarette Anatomy

E-Cigarettes (vapes) is equipped with four things; a battery, an atomizer, a tank, and e-liquid.

The battery is the power source of the e-cigarette, which provides an electrical current to the atomizer.

The atomizer is the part of the e-cigarette that turns the e-liquid into vapour.  The e-cigarette's battery gives off an electric current, that gives off heat to the wire coil. The heat turns e-liquid into vapour, which then can be inhaled.



Cigalikes are designed to look and feel like a traditional cigarette. It is usually equipped with a rechargeable battery and cartridge reservoir packed with absorbent polyfill to hold the e-liquid and a non-replacement atomizer. Cigalikes were a smash hit then e-cigarettes were first introduced, but are less favourable today because of the weak performance, bad design, and environmental efficiency.


Pen Vape

Pen vapes are long, slim e-cigarettes that are designed to resemble a pen. It's made up of a battery, tank, and a replaceable atomizer. These devices are rechargeable and refillable, and often have more battery and e-liquid capacity than cigalike device, meaning they provide better quality vapour for longer.


Pod Vape

Pod vapes are one of the newest designs on the market. These devices have a battery and a pod tank that contains an atomizer inside. With some pod vapes, pods are refillable, but in other models they are not. Just like cigalikes, pod vapes are small and portable and have a non-replacement atomizer. This means that once the atomizer is used up, the entire mod needs to be replacement. Pod vapes are very easy to use.


Mod Vape

Mod vapes are well0known for their boxy style, though they aren't square shaped. These devices have large battery sections and a separate tank that sits on top. The tank contains a replacement atomizer section. Most mod vapes will require removable battery cells to operate. Mod vapes are rechargeable, refillable, and, in general, has greater power and vapour potential than vape pens.
