What is an electronic cigarette?

An electronic cigarette (also known as an e-cigarette, electronic vaping device, or personal vaporizer [PV])
is a battery-powered device which produces an inhaled vapor. It generally uses a heating element that vaporizes a liquid solution. Some solutions contain a mixture of nicotine and flavorings while others release a flavored vapor without nicotine.


Most include the following components:


a mouthpiece/tip


a heating element and a liquid reservoir (cartomizer) that vaporizes the liquid

a rechargeable power source (battery)

(Pressing the power button will activate the battery.)

Why do I need two batteries?
With heavy use a single battery will get very hot. That could reduce its life span.
You also need a backup.

What is the difference between a 650mAh battery and a 1000mAh one?

mAh is a measurement of the amount of energy the battery can store. The one with 1000 can store more than the 650 one can. It is an indication of how long the device can power itself from the battery.

Please remember that using electronic devices is different from regular smoking. They are delicate, so treat them with care.

· DO NOT repeatedly drop a battery on a hard surface.

· DO NOT place a battery in your chest pocket; it could cause skin burning when you wear a seat belt because the belt could push the button in.

· DO NOT place a battery in your back pocket; it could bend and snap under pressure, destroying the battery button and the connector.

· DO NOT blow into your atomizer when it is connected to your battery; this will cause juice to run onto the circuit.

· DO NOT overfill a cartomizer; it could cause battery problems.

· DO NOT put your e-juice into the middle tube, only into the surrounding one.

· DO NOT pull out a cable; always remove a plug by holding a connector to avoid damaging the charger cord circuit.

Also, please make sure that:

· everything is connected properly to avoid leakage or damage

· your connector threads are clean. Keeping your connector threads clean affects both the performance and the longevity of each part. You can clean your battery connector with alcohol swabs. Battery failure for automatic batteries could be due to getting moisture inside them.

How long will each part last?

· You can refill your cartomizer as many times as you like until it stops working, which will usually be within one to three weeks.

· You can recharge your batteries about 300 times; however, it depends on how you use them. Generally, most last two to seven months.
