TERMS & DEFINITIONS
Adapter: A metal device that is used to attach otherwise incompatible cartridges and batteries together.
Advanced Personal Vaporizer (APV): often associated with a device that employs larger batteries, features a variable voltage/wattage option, and will allow for more room for the end user to adjust vaping experience to his/her liking e.g. temperature or vapor production (see FAQ)
Analog Cigarette: Traditional tobacco cigarette versus the ‘digital’ e-
Atomizer (Atty): The heating element that evaporates the e-
Atty/Carto Connection Type: the type of connection used to join the atty/carto to PV/APV/Mod. 510 connection is the most common and thus, industry standard.
Battery: sits inside PV/APV/Mod and provides power to atomizer/cartomizer and comes in various sizes. IMR batteries (Lithium Ion Manganese) are preferred due to stability .
Cartomizer (Carto): A disposable, tube-
Cartridge: A hollow cylindrical part that acts as a mouthpiece and contains the e-
Clearomizer: is the transparent version of a cartomizer. Designed to allow users to see how much e-
Drip Shield: The drip shield is a round metal or plastic tube that slips over your atomizer. If leaking occurs on your atomizer, the liquid will leak into the drip shield instead of leaking onto your PV. As your atomizer runs out of liquid stored, the liquid in the drip shield will be sucked back into the atomizer to then be vaporized.
Drip Tip: An optional electronic cigarette accessory that attaches to the mouth-
Dripping: an alternate method of vaping e-
Dry Burn: Drawing on the the atomizer when completely dry. This can damage your atomizer so it should be avoided.
Dry Vape: If a atomizer is flooded with too much e-
Dual Coil Cartomizer: this is precisely a cartomizer, but features 2 coils and is commonly used when vaping with tanks. When working as said, a dual coil cartomizer has the ability to produce twice as much vapor or the same amount twice as fast from the standard.
FDA: Abbreviation for United States’ governing body, Food & Drug Administration
Flooding: referring to the atomizer (atty) or cartomizer (carto); occurs when too much e-
Fluval: A common filler material used in aquariums; some vapers use it to replace the standard filler found in factory cartridges.
Heating Coil: this is where the e-
High Resistance (HR): A high resistance atomizer/cartomizer that will produce less heat due to the “high” resistance of the coil inside atomizer (from increased Voltage application). Here, the Ohm rating would be higher (versus standard or low resistance)-
Kanthal Wire: One of two types of resistance wire used for a heating coil in either an atomizer or cartomizer; this being the wire of choice for RBAs (Rebuildable Atomizers). The other is Nichrome Wire (see Nichrome Wire)
LED: Abbreviation for Light Emitting Diode; a diode that converts applied voltage to light. These are commonly used in electronic cigarette devices to indicate that the device is actively being used.
Low Resistance (LR): A low resistance atomizer/cartomizer that will produce heat very quickly (versus standard and high resistance) as a result of having a lower Ohm rating (approximately 1.5 Ohms for disposable atty and carto)
mAh (Milliamp per Hour): units of measure expressed in batteries-
Mechanical Mod: a vaping device that does not have any electronics; essentially a mod without wires.
mg strength: a unit measurement that is referred to the strength of the nicotine in any given e-
mL: abbreviation for milliliter, related to e-
Mods: A broad range of advanced e-
Nichrome Wire: One of the two main types of resistance wire used for the heating coil in an atomizer or cartomizer; the other is Kanthal (see Kanthal Wire)
Personal Charging Case (PCC): A portable battery pack that can recharge your e-
Personal Vaporizer (PV): A electronic device that will vaporize a substance through slight heating. Usually used in reference to the more nontraditional style e-
Polyfil: The standard material used in the factory to fill cartridges.
Priming: Wetting the atomizer wick with e-
Propylene Glycol (PG): A FDA approved substance classically used in food and cosmetics; for e-
Pull: The draw you take from your electronic cigarette.
Rebuildable Atomizer (RBA) The heating element that evaporates the e-
Standard Resistance: refers to a cartomizer or atomizer’s resistance, measured in Ohms, at about 3.0 Ohms
Steeping: a process used to mature and maximize flavor profile of e-
Tank: A special type of cartridge that holds considerably more liquid than cartridges with filler. Usually used with a cartomizer
Vegetable Glycerin (VG): Glycerin derived from vegetable sources, evaporates when slightly heated.
Vape: as opposed to “smoke”; water vapor is produced when e-
Vaper: in reference to a person who “vapes” versus “smokes”
Vaping: Inhaling a vapor without flame.
Variable Voltage: A classical, commonly found feature in an APV device. Variable Voltage allows you to control the amount of voltage produced by the device (APV). A typical voltage range for variable voltage is 3.0volts – 6.0volts and can be adjusted in increments of 0.1V
Variable Wattage (VW): allows you to control how many watts your device will produce. Variable wattage will allow you to set the wattage, no matter what resistance atomizer or cartomizer you use with the device. Variable Power (VP) is also used to describe variable wattage.
Watt(s): is a measurement of power which is the function of the voltage of your electronic cigarette or mod and the resistance of your atomizer or cartomizer. Watts = Voltage (squared) of your device divided by the resistance of your atomizer or cartomizer.
Wick: A wick is an absorbent material that is used in many different styles of atomizers. A type of poly or silica string or number of strings is often used for the wicking.
Wicking: refers to the act of directing the e-
