9.Three main types of e-cigarettes


There are three main types of EVs-electric or electronic evaporators, the most common being electronic cigarettes or ecig. These are mini or cigalike, medium or eGo, and APV or 'mod'. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, which are outlined here.



1. mini

A small or regular-sized ecigarette (they are also known as cigalikes, look-alikes, look-likies, stick ecigs) is usually the first choice for novices because these models look and feel like cigarettes. Mini is a great way to try out the system at the lowest cost.


Most mini cars are automatic models, which means they can work automatically without the on / off button-when inhaling, the inhaler operates a switch that turns on the atomizer heater coil. Some models are manual: they have a small button near the top of the battery. Each type has pros and cons.


Although they have hundreds of brand names, minis are based on models with a recognized serial number that can be distinguished from other models by their thread type and fit. In other words, 'Whizzocig' will become KR808 or anything else. If you know the model series, you can mix matching parts from other vendors as they are almost certainly suitable-although the manufacturer may claim, there are no proprietary models; all belong to a specific series type. For example, V2Cig and V4L are KR808 models. Of course, individual manufacturers try to improve the performance of their own products rather than other products of the same type, and there are many ways to do this.


These are called first-generation models because they were invented in the first generation. All these models initially used a 3-piece system with a battery atomizer box. About 95% of people now use a 2-piece battery ice maker system. The smoke atomizer combines the atomizer and the liquid reservoir in one unit.


Opinion polls tell us that about 8% of forum members continue to use these models often, although more forum members use it as a backup or loan model. Battery capacities range from 125mAh to 280mAh.


The mini is a good choice for discreet use (unobtrusive, keep a low profile) and serves as a launch for the ecig concept. If the model you choose looks exactly like a cigarette-white with a red LED tip-then it can be used where you smoke; but don't try to use it indoors because people will think you are smoking and there is not much explanation to solve it, Because it will definitely cause confusion or resentment. Conversely, getting a black with a blue or green tip will create fewer problems because it is more difficult to confuse with tobacco cigarettes.


Minis don't have good performance and there is nothing to solve this situation, because in the ecig world, battery size is everything. A 20-day (1PAD) ex-smoker needs to have at least 6 batteries in their pocket / wallet to ensure continuous use (see backup below). Mini ecigs has two specific tasks, and they are perfect:


Introduce new users to the concept of vaping


For occasional smokers


Common models include 510, 901, M401 and KR808 (usually shortened to KR8).


Main advantages / disadvantages

The most important thing about mini ecigs is that they look like regular cigarettes, so new users prefer to try them over larger (though more efficient) models.


For many, however, they do not provide users with enough nicotine when used by beginners. Multiple clinical trials have shown that for many people (in fact, most users, in these trials), the device is just a placebo (non-working device). Plasma nicotine levels tests showed little or no nicotine. This is a beginner's technique with low performance and poor vaping capabilities, and the combination of low performance and poor technology is too low for nicotine. There are two solutions:

-If you are experiencing cravings, use a higher nicotine intensity-In some cases it shows that 45mg (4.5%) intensity is required, depending on the efficiency of the device

-Upgrade to more efficient equipment (will be greatly improved by definition) large)

You can also learn about better user technology that can solve this problem well in some cases.




Looks and feels like a cigarette


Small but discreet


Automatic and manual models


The cheapest way to get started


If you know the model type, you can reuse parts


Suitable for light or occasional smokers




Low battery life-45 minutes to 2 hours for some users


The other two physically larger classes have three main types of electronic cigarettes with better performance


May not provide adequate performance for heavy smokers or full-smokers


Due to excessively enthusiastic refilling, liquid leaks into the battery can damage the car battery


LR heads cannot be used-these small devices can operate with a minimum resistance of about 2 ohms (this limits steam generation).




Smokers are unfamiliar with every item that needs backup: ecig (battery, head), refill, charger. Any project can fail at any time, which can get you into trouble. Every part of the ecig system is a consumable-there is virtually no life ecig, and most items need to be updated. There are two items for the novice to buy initially: battery and refill (e-liquid). It is also useful to remember that ecig is really just a collection of parts, and you need to keep spare parts for each part.


Battery: The minimum practical quantity is 3; one is in use, one is charging, and one is on standby. Users of the mini ecig need more, as the battery may only take an hour to recharge. The smaller the battery, the more batteries you need.

Nebulizer: No matter what type of head is used, spare parts are required. These could be cartos, clearos, tank or RRA (rebuildables). Some have replaceable atomizer wicks. Basic atomizers, such as the 510 with a drip tip, are very useful for testing new flavors.

Replenishment liquids: If you buy e-liquids on the Internet, please note that you need sufficient reserves, as the delivery time can be extended so that you do not need any replenishment.

Charger: Don't forget this-the battery charger may malfunction and prevent you from charging your evaporator.


Experienced vapers backup to backup to avoid getting stuck. The initial cost may seem high, but it is actually much lower than the cost of smoking, at least where any taxes are large.



2.Medium size

The medium-sized ecig (also called eGo type, eGo size, fat-batt) is the number one model because it fits most vapers, whether it is the main equipment or the main spare equipment. Common names are eGo, Riva, Tornado, kGo, etc.


Medium e-cigarettes with clearomiser are now the base model. They are the size of a slender cigar. In fact, all medium power generation is a manual-very few car batteries are manufactured. Selectable voltages for some models are about 3 or 4 steps, from about 3.3 volts to about 4.5 volts.


These second-generation models have larger batteries, at least 650mAh. This has three important consequences:


Longer battery life


They produce more steam than mini


They can use a wider head. Various tanks and other exotic heads (liquid reservoirs, nebulizers and interface devices) can be used.


Crucially, they can use LR low-resistance atomizer coils on the head to generate more steam


Most of these models have a 510 connector system, although some use KR8 threads.


This is the baseline now: all ecig measurements and the types on which the values ​​should be based. That's the average across all aspects-probably about three-quarters of the forum members either use one as their primary device or keep one as a backup.


Main advantages / disadvantages

Pro: This is the basic ecig now, so there are various accessories. Can use LR atomizer.

Con: The eGo type is more prone to fires than all other types of batteries-and then some. These fires can occur while charging. They are caused by low overall quality or using the wrong charger. The problem is the widespread availability of cheap clones and ultra-cheap chargers-original, real models from Janty or Joyetech are unlikely to suffer any misfortune.


Cloning is sometimes too cheap: cheap batteries and cheap chargers (75 cents when shipped from the factory, which are too cheap to ensure quality) mean that fires are becoming more common when charging. We therefore recommend:

-All medium-sized units (eGo type ecigs) are charged in a Li-Po charging bag (a special fireproof bag for unstable batteries)

-Never charge the heart in a room where oxygen is available or available-Use an electrocardiogram

Carefully monitor elderly or confused patients as they do when they smoke-don't let them charge in the same room as the oxygen supply




Can use LR atties as low as about 1.5 ohms


Not too expensive at the beginning-maybe 50% cheaper than the mini-although, as always, you have to pay for higher quality: if in doubt, buy a good brand instead of the three main types of cloned e-cigarettes


The most commonly used 510 connector type has a large number of heads


The smaller battery option, 650mAh, is quite small, and for those who want it discreet, the battery of these devices is also very small (450mAh)-it is very discrete, but not used much


Looks and feels like a little cigar, so it's not too big


Double the performance of any mini-twice the steam and battery life


The battery has a long service life, and about 1000mAh battery can last up to 8 hours for some transmissions


Adequate performance should be provided for most smokers who migrate to ecigs, especially newcomers


The number one ecig for good reason-more than any other type of user




Almost all of these are manual operations-while beneficial for experienced users, a disadvantage for novices


May be too big for beginners


Slightly more expensive at first


Optimal performance is not achieved because battery power / voltage is still low


Beware of cheap clones and / or cheap chargers that can cause a fire while charging-never charge one of these devices on a carpet



3. APV

The advanced personal evaporator (aka 'mods') is a logical progression and development of the ecig concept, suitable for those who want the ultimate performance. They can be simply defined as any model that uses a user-replaceable universal battery and / or has features that are usually not available in mini or medium e-cigarettes. So the APV can simply be a battery seatpost, or it can be the McLaren of the ecig world, with all the bells and whistles.


There are two main types of APV: tubular tubular modules and box-shaped box modules.

There are three subtypes: mechanical ('mechmods'), basic electrical (for example: Silver Bullet) or electronic (typically these have oLED readings).


Therefore, APV usually looks like a fat tube, reminiscent of a tubemod with a mouthpiece, or a box of cigarettes with a boxmod.


They are usually not suitable for newcomers because they are too large, or look strange, or too cumbersome; plus all are manual switch models. These are second-generation and subsequent devices (we are now 5th-generation devices in the first quarter of 2014). Almost all products have greatly extended battery life, and most of them use the universal 3.7-volt lithium-ion battery, which is a rechargeable battery that can be purchased from many sources. There are several types of this battery, the most popular battery is the 18650 IMR (Li-Mn) rechargeable battery.


The biggest advantage is the performance provided by the large battery, as well as various advanced functions and features provided according to the specific model: overall liquid feeding, digital reading, variable voltage, full electronic control, sturdy metal structure or attractive wooden structure embedded Body, etc.
