FAQ about e-cigerettes

Q: What exactly is an electronic cigarette?

A:
Electronic Cigarettes have been developed to provide traditional smokers with the sensations of smoking, but without the dangerous side effects which arise from the burning of tobacco.

A battery in the electronic cigarettes powers an atomiser which heats the propylene glycol / vegetable glycerin base liquid to create a smoke like vapour. This vapour combines with the liquid nicotine and the food dye flavourings to provide an experience similar to smoking a traditional cigarette, but without the harmful by-products.

Propylene glycol is a well known additive which has been deemed to be “safe” by the world health organisation. It has been used in a number of products for several years ranging from asthmatic nebulisers to the production of smoke in night clubs and for stage shows.

Electronic cigarettes do not contain tobacco so they do not burn in the same way as traditional cigarettes. They do not produce the ash, carbon monoxide, benzene, and the other dangerous by-products which result from the burning of tobacco.

Q: What is an atty?

A:
An atty or Atomiser/Atomizer is a small electronic heating element that connects to the battery by way of a ‘screw thread’; when the battery button is pushed, the heating element will fire up/get hot and heat the e-liquid enough to create vapour, These are generally used with a cartridge or drip tip for direct dripping. Before using, don’t forget to prime it first with a couple of drops of e-liquid. These are considered to be a disposable item with a user life of ‘between’ 1 day to 2 months (this is subjective to you and your usage/abusage of the atty).

Q: What is a cart?

A:
A Cart or Cartridge is a small plastic tube with a cap on one end that has a hole in it, the other end is open. The cart is filled with a kind of wadding or sponge that soaks up the e-liquid. It takes on average, 12 to 15 drops of e-liquid to fill; this is then put on to an atomiser ready for you to vape, They are generally made out of ‘vegetable graded’ materials. These are considered to be a disposable item. They should last months or longer - it's the wadding/polyester wool that needs changing - I found once a week did it. You can also use the Blue Foam and Fluval (fish tank pads) as suitable 'wool' replacement.

Q: What is a carto?

A:
A Carto or Cartomiser/Cartomizer is an ‘all in one’ steel, tubular combination of an atomiser and cartridge that’s filled with a kind of wadding that your e-liquid soaks in to. They come in different ohms (LR or low resistance, SR or standard resistance and HR or high resistance), lengths (Standard size, XL, XXL, XXXL, XXXXL, XXXXXL), single coil, dual coil (DCC), triple coil, clear, punched (for use in tanks) and un-punched (used directly on to your PV), skirted/flanged and bottom coil. They are generally made out of ‘vegetable graded’ stainless steel. You can refill a cartomiser many times before disposal, making them a very economical alternative to atomisers.

Q: What is a clearo?

A:
A Clearo or Clearomiser/Clearomizer is made out of vegetable grade plastic or polycarbonate. They do basically the same job as a cartomiser does. These are considered to be a disposable item. You can refill a clearomiser many times before disposal, making them a very economical alternative to atomisers.

Q: What is a drip tip?

A:
A drip tip is a hollow tube mouthpiece that can be attached to either an atty (see above) or a carto or clearo (see above). They come in various shapes, sizes and colours. They are generally made out of ‘vegetable graded’ materials and are widely used by many vapers.

Q: What does LR, SR and HR stand for?

A:
LR or Low Resistance, SR or Standard Resistance, HR or High Resistance and VHR or Very High Resistance refers to the ohm-age range of any given atty or carto/clearo.

As a very rough guide:

LR up to about 2.6 Ohms

SR 2.8 – 3.8 Ohms

HR 3.8 – 4.8 Ohms

LR is generally used at a voltage of between 3.2v to 4.2v. Most people who use LR components usually say the best voltage for them is 3.7v – which is the range most starter kits fall into.

SR is generally used at a voltage of between 3.7v to 5.0v. It will be subjective to you as to what voltage suits you best, but a lot agree that attys/carto/clearo’s that are in the 2.0ohms - 3.0ohms range work best at 4.2v.


HR is generally used at a voltage of between 5.0v to 7.4v, although some SR components do also work up to those higher voltages.


Q: What’s a tank?

A:
A tank is used with a punched cartomiser and is basically a reservoir for your e-liquid. The tube comes in plastic/polycarbonate, pyrex glass, delrin or stainless steel. It comes with a top and bottom cap that has holes in them; these holes are for the cartomiser and tip. You put the caps on the top and bottom, you then gently push the cartomiser threaded end through the top until is just reaches the bottom, you turn the tank over, pull on the top end of the cartomiser just enough for you to fill the tank with e-liquid, once filled you ease the threaded end through the bottom so the screw end is showing, give the bottom end a wipe, put your favourite drip tip on and screw to your device and vape.

Q: How do I fill me clearomiser?

A: Watch the video!



Q: How much e-liquid and other stuff do I need to last me a month?

A:
For e-liquid, this is dependant on how heavy you vape, on average 3 - 5mil per day is considered the norm, if you vape more than that per day, you will need to total your daily usage for a months supply. As for 'other stuff', always have spares of everything!
