* its size (ex :18650 / 26650)

* its capacity in mAh (ex : 2500mAh / 1500mAh)

* its voltage volts

* its discharge voltage

* its chemical composition, indicated by a series of letters.

There are a lot and its a plus because they can literally change the taste of your preparation.


Air-Flow :

The Air-flow is a system of adjustment of the air flow of an atomizer. It will allow through its slots specially designed (ring circular perforated), control the volume of air flowing through the cigarette electronic.

We speak of "drawing air" (the open slots) and a "draw grass" (cracks slightly open or closed).






All day :

"All day" means in French " all day ". We will use the term generally for an e-liquid that can be consumed regularly throughout the day. On the other hand some e-liquid individuals will usually be to consume occasionally.


Initiate a clearomizer :

Before using a new clearomizer or during the replacement of your resistance, it is important to begin the clearomizer. That is to say to impregnate the cotton with a few drops of e-liquid in order to avoid that the resistance heater without e-liquid and produces a burnt taste.

It is the device supplying electrical energy to the resistance of your atomizer for the heat and to vaporize the e-liquid.

Different batteries are offered but it is important to choose the battery according to its needs.


Bottom feeding (BF) :

The BF aims to correct the main drawback of vaping DRY, that is to say, to systematically dampen the braid.

Usually the mods BF are equipped with a system that allows, by simple pressure on a tank, send out a few drops of e-liquid on the braid.

This avoids the disassembly of the atomizer.

Hot spot :

The hot spot is a problem that you may encounter in the rebuildable.

It occurs when the resistance heater in an abnormal way. It then causes an unpleasant taste in the mouth.

It can be caused when the coil is not in contact with the wick and e-liquid, which will cause overheating of the resistance. The resistive wire will become red.


Propylene Glycol (PG):

The PG is one of the main elements in the composition of e-liquids with VG (Vegetable Glycerin). It vaporizes at a low temperature of 60°C. The PG is a non-toxic and non-carcinogenic, often used in the food industries, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. It is sometimes replaced by the Polyethylene Glycol (PEG or PPG).
