As the popularity of vaping and e-cigarettes has exploded over recent years, many new people have joined the vaping community. No matter how much experience a vaper may or may not have, learning about how vaping works will benefit their overall vaping experience. First and foremost, every vape device is powered by a battery. Most vaporizers use lithium-ion batteries because they are rechargeable and therefore offer great value and convenience. The battery provides electrical energy to the atomizer portion of the device. Inside the atomizer, you will find one or more heating coils. When the device is turned on, the electrical power enables these coils to begin generating heat. Near the end of the vaporizer device is the tank, which can also be called a cartridge if it is of the disposable variety. This tank is where the e-liquid is contained, which is what will eventually become the smokable vapor. Other names for e-liquids include e-juice and vape juice, and there are a wide variety of flavors to choose from. In many newer models of vape devices, the tank is incorporated into the atomizer, in which case the two combined parts is referred to as a cartomizer. If a cartomizer is made from a clear material, allowing you to see the level of e-liquid inside, then it is called a clearomizer. Whatever form of tank your device has, it allows the heating coils to come in contact with the e-juice. When heated to the right temperature, the e-juice turns into vapor. You place your mouth on the mouthpiece to draw in the flavored vapor.
