Two And Three Part E Cigarettes
There are two basic styles of electronic cigarettes, those that consist of two parts or three parts. This is a functional difference that should be understood prior to purchase because it bears on the replacement costs and ongoing expense of e cigarette use. A two-part unit includes a battery and a cartomizer. Each manufacturer specifies the battery size and how long it takes to recharge. Generally, an e cigarette starter kit comes complete with a wall charger and a USB port charger, but that is definitely something to check before purchasing a kit. And a cartomizer is a combination of a cartridge containing e cigarette liquid and an atomizer that heats up and turns the liquid into vapor. The capacity of liquid varies between manufacturers as well, and that’s another thing to check before purchasing your first electronic cigarette or switching models.
Advantages Of A Two-Part E Cigarette
There are three distinct advantages to the two-part style of e cigarette, and those are ease of cartomizer replacement when the liquid is gone, new atomizers, and basic good hygiene. You may see some users with the ability to screw the battery to the cartomizer with one hand, although that skill takes some practice. Naturally, it is very simple to put together using both hands. And as soon as that process is accomplished there is a fresh supply of e cigarette liquid containing nicotine and flavoring as well as a fresh atomizer. This is an advantage over the three-part units in which the atomizers are used over and over while the liquid is refilled again and again, which can lead to poor functionality due to a clogged system. It’s easy to see that the mouthpiece on used cartomizers fits between the users’ lips and when a new one is screwed into the battery it is completely fresh each time, including the mouthpiece. Some users really appreciate this sanitary feature of the two-part units, also called automatice cigarettes because the breath passing through the cartomizer triggers it to heat up to create vapor, so there’s no manual trigger required.
Advantages of A Three-Part E Cigarette
The battery, atomizer and cartridge are the three different components of a three-part e cigarette. Since each part can be purchased separately and even swapped-out for those made by other manufacturers, the three-part system offers the most flexibility. And it offers greater opportunity for cost savings as well, meaning savings over other types of electronic cigarettes with liquid cartridges that cannot be refilled by the user. Cost savings over tobacco cigarette use is also assumed. Each part can be replaced whenever necessary, and refilling the e cigarette liquid can become a hobby unto itself since there are literally thousands of fruit, food, herbal and incense flavors available. Three-part electronic cigarettes may come with a manual switch requiring the user to press a little button to start the atomizer, but they can also be changed into an automatic unit simply by switching parts.
