How E-Cigs Work: The Technology Inside

what-is-e-cigaretteE-cigs are simple in looks and design, however within that sleek cigarette-like body is a great deal of technology that comes together to recreate the smoking experience minus the smoke.

Understanding the technology is about understanding what each of the parts do, and how they work in unison to get the job done so fluently. Regardless of the style of electronic cigarette, the majority of these parts will be the same, with variances in power, performance, and capabilities. However, essentially it all comes down to liquid nicotine, a vaporizing mechanism, a battery or power source, and something to puff on.

Continue reading to learn more about the technology behind   electronic cigarette parts, what they are, what they do, and how they work.

Battery: The battery is the most important part of the vaping equation. It is the power source, and it is the main body of the e-cigarette. Inside of it are all the other parts, including the mouthpiece on which the user will inhale upon. E-Cigarette batteries come in a wide range of sizes, styles, and power levels, however they basically do the same job. It’s rather amazing that they can hold so much power, and contain so many other components while remaining so compact.

Atomizer: The atomizer is built into the e-cigarette cartridge the majority of the time, especially regarding two-piece e-cigs. This is the part of the unit that is responsible for vaporizing the nicotine e-liquid into the vapor. It receives a surge of power from the battery, kicking into gear when the user begins puffing.

Cartridge: The cartridge is the disposable part of the e-cigarette that comes pre-filled with flavored e-liquid, and is created with the atomizer inside. Atomizers tend to not have a long life, and replacing them with each new cartridge allows for better performance. The cartridge also contains the silicon mouthpiece.

E-Liquid: E-liquid is what the vapor hits are created from, and where the nicotine and flavor are held.

Crystal Tip: The end of the e-cigarette is fitted with a crystal tip, that glows when in use. It alerts the user when the battery is getting low, and allows others to know when you are puffing on it, in a very realistic manner.

Silicon Mouthpiece: The silicon mouthpiece is created for comfort, and resembles in look and feel a traditional cigarette filter. Created with a hole designed for smooth hitting and the right amount of resistance, a silicon mouthpiece is very comfortable for smokers.

The whole process of how these parts are used to simulate the experience of smoking, without the use of tobacco, or smoke is truly remarkable, and this modern usage of technology is allowing millions of people to enjoy the process in a much more enjoyable manner. Technology is amazing, isn’t it?

Boosting Your E-Cig Battery Life

250-250-eversmoke-battery-ecig-batteriesWhen it comes to electronic cigarette batteries, you may be wondering what you can do to keep yours running as powerfully as possible, for as long as possible. Here are some ways to improve your e-cig batteries’ performance and life so that you can get the most out of them. While many people complain about e-cigarette batteries not lasting very long, we encourage you to take some action to keep things running smoothly!

-Clean the Battery. E-cigarette batteries get subjected to dirt and foreign debris because they are handled with the hands, and when anything is used regularly, it gets exposed. Small liquid leaks, storing the battery in your pocket upside down, and normal, everyday dirt can get in and slowly diminish performance. What you can do is tidy things up a bit. Cleaning your electronic cigarette doesn’t have to be difficult, however, you should know the basics: Once a week or so, take your e-cigarette apart, and wipe down all parts with a damp cloth. If you feel inspired, or if there is a significant amount of visible filth, use an old toothbrush to really scrub the junk out. This allows the parts to connect more consistently, and ensures dirt will not be getting in the way of your enjoyment.

-Use the Battery. It was designed for use, so use it! Some people want to preserve their batteries, and attempt to use them as infrequently as possible, but that’s not what they were designed for. Using them enables them to actually work, and they need that constant running to maintain good performance.

-Charge E-Cig Batteries Properly. Yes there are actually wrong ways to charge your batteries! You don’t want to wait till you’re down to the 0 level. The ideal time to charge a battery is when it is at 50% or higher because this creates less stress on the battery to power it back up to full capacity. When drained to nearly no power, it takes more effort and energy out of the battery to recover, and this overtime, contributes to a loss of performance.

-Store Your Batteries Right. Our storage cases were designed with the intent of storing your EverSmoke e-cigarette batteries, so we suggest using them. A case is the ideal place to hold your batteries because they were made to protect, and to keep your batteries safe. Just stashing a battery in your pocket is one of the worst things you can do, so keep it safe in a case, as well as in a cool, dry place.

So that sums it up! Taking care of your electronic cigarette batteries doesn’t have to take an exaggerated amount of time, nor does it have to be complicated. Following these simple steps can allow you to use your battery for a very long time, without losing any of the power and performance you want. E-cigarettes are an investment; protect them!

Powering the Vaping World

Information about lithium-ion batteries and their usage in today’s techy world

In 1997, developers released a new battery that rather than using a liquid solvent to conduct a charge (like the nickel-metal hydride battery (NiMH), they used a solid polymer composite instead.

The Workings of Lithium-ion Batteries

In addition to using solid polymer composite, the electrodes and separators that generate the charge in a lithium-ion battery are laminated to each other. This allows for a flexible wrapping casing rather than a typical metal casing.

For this reason, shaping lithium-ion batteries to specific devices is easy, which eliminates the need for one size-fits all battery.

What Lithium-ion Batteries Power

Pretty much all of the devices we use today use lithium-ion batteries for a power source—including (but not limited to):

  • Portable devices
    • For example: mobile and smartphones, laptops and tablets, digital cameras and camcorders, handheld game consoles and flashlights and most e-cigarettes on the market (including EverSmoke)

Spring Cleaning! – Taking Care of Your Electronic Cigarette

branch of a blossoming tree

Spring has sprung again!  This means the weather is getting warmer (hopefully), beautiful flowers are beginning to bloom and of course, the annoying pollen that comes along with the beauty of the season.  However, it also means it is time to get that check list out of items to clean!

Closets, cupboards, cabinets may only need the once a year spring cleaning but your electronic cigarette needs a cleaning on a regular basis.

If you have owned one a while and have yet to clean it, spring is a good time to start!  Your Eversmoke electronic cigarette has hopefully been a great investment for you so make it a priority to care of it properly.  It will not only help to extend the life of your product but can make your vaping experience even more satisfying.

Below are suggestions and guidelines for proper cleaning of your Eversmoke electronic cigarette. (However, always check your manual of your particular device for exactly cleaning instructions)

The Battery

  • Residue and dirt can often get stuck in between where the cartridge and battery connect.  It is suggested that, at least once a week, you take a lightly dampened cotton swab and clean this area where the residue collects.
  • Some people have used alcohol to clean but definitely check your manual before doing that. It is very important to clean the residue so that there is a proper connection between the battery and cartridge
  • Proper cleaning of your battery can mean better function, more charges and a longer lasting battery.

The Cartridge (Cartomizer)

  • Most newer model electronic cigarettes are now made up of two parts, the battery and the cartridge or cartomizer (e.g. where the atomizer, or heating element, is built into the cartridge).
  • The cartridge and atomizer used to be sold separately and would need cleaned separately but most are now combined.
  • Eversmoke offers disposable cartridges where it is not necessary to clean since it will be thrown away.
  • Eversmoke provides prefilled cartridges which means less mess and spills.
  • However, you may have a different type of model and you need to make sure that you clean the cartridge regularly where juices may have spilled and are possibly “caked” on to the cartridge.
  • You can take a small toothpick and gently break off the caked on material if the cloth will not work.

Bottom line, clean and take care of your electronic cigarette.  It will pay off for you! More TLC generally means a longer lasting electronic cigarette as well as better quality vaping.

Dealing with the Snow: Enjoying e-cigs no matter what the weather

Winter Snow Storm Hammers Northeastern USThis year’s nonstop onslaught of inclement weather throughout the US has seen unprecedented amounts of snow and crazy conditions, attributed to the lovely polar vortex. Who ever heard of winter storms getting names? Wasn’t that a luxury once reserved only for hurricanes? It seems as though no sooner than areas recover from one storm, it’s time to prepare for the next blizzard and subsequent days of freezing temperatures.

While it can be a wonderful thing to be an e-smoker rather than a tobacco smoker during the winter, especially when you don’t have to bundle up just for a 5 minute smoke break, there are things to keep in mind if you will be vaping during this particularly brutal winter!

So if you are a vaper, how do you deal? Here are some tips for handling the weather and still enjoying your e-cigarettes in the process.

When Losing Power is of Concern:

How will you charge your e-cigarette batteries if you have no power? Obviously that is a big deal, however you do have options. Having a Portable Charging Case would be really ideal in this situation, as it can charge your batteries 4 times before it needs to be recharged. Another option would be to have a nice supply of disposable e-cigarettes, which do not require charging and they can be used right out of the package.

If You Leave Town:

Traveling with e-cigarettes can be done easily. Make sure to pack enough extra batteries, cartridges, a couple of versatile chargers, and whatever accessories you use to keep things simple. Even though you may have to leave quickly, it’s always important to have a supply of extra cartridges just in case of emergencies, you’re covered. Disposable e-cigarettes are also a great example of what to have on hand in case of an emergency.

If you’re Sticking it Out, Trying Not to Go Stir-Crazy:

Make sure your e-cigs are handy and make sure you’ve got plenty of gear to keep you warm. If you’ve got power, turn the heat up to a comfortable temperature; if you’ve got a fireplace take full advantage of it and get burning bright. Huddle close in to your loved ones and/or animals, and vape on dreaming of summer!

Breast Cancer Awareness

header_breast_cancer_awarenessDuring the month of October, seemingly everything turns pink, and EverSmoke is no different. Breast cancer awareness is an enormously big deal, with millions of people worldwide tipping their hats to survivors, those who have lost the battle, and raising awareness for the cause itself. Athletes don pink athletic shoes, races and marathons happen throughout the nation in honor, events are being held in nearly every city, and everywhere you go, you can show your unity buy purchasing items in “pink” to support the efforts.

One of the biggest reasons people are so proactive when it comes to breast cancer awareness is that it savagely kills and disfigures. A huge amount of prevention comes from awareness. Nearly everyone knows someone who has fought the good fight against this disease, and it’s well documented how difficult it is!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, EverSmoke is selling beautiful, limited edition e-cigarette batteries in a delicious shade of pink. 5% of all proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen fund, and you can sport your pink e-cigarette battery as a way to show your support in the cause against breast cancer. These fantastic batteries are stylish, extremely well made, and contribute to a monumental cause. They are basically a pink version of our perennially popular rechargeable High Capacity battery, with automatic switching, known and loved for having exceptionally long life. All year long you can celebrate the fact that not only does having a pink battery rock, but it has a great meaning behind it.

So this year, while you are busy supporting the fight against breast cancer, get yourself an amazingly cool, limited edition pink EverSmoke e-cigarette battery. The meaning is awesome, the battery is awesome, and it’s just another great reason to keep your e-cig stash supplied well! Act fast, though, because quantities are limited, when they’re gone, they’re gone!

Keeping Your E-Cigarettes Charged & Ready!

EverSmoke-Charger-e1336266489732Convenience is on the minds of most e-smokers, and we make a wide array of products to help you out when it comes to keeping your e-cigarette batteries charged and ready for use. We want our products to fit into your life, and we want them to be as convenient as possible. Here is a look at how our accessories will make your batteries happy, whenever you need them to! Being ready in a moment’s notice can mean so much, and can be the trick to making vaping work out successfully for you!

You can’t vape without battery power, and it’s really important to know the ins and outs of how your batteries work so you aren’t left learning them after your batteries run out of power. When you first get your batteries, even if they have some power to them, don’t use them until after you have charged them up to full capacity. This is so important, and can make your battery last longer in the long run.

You will know when your battery needs recharging because the vapor gets significantly reduced. If it has been charged fully, then the culprit most likely is that the cartridge needs to be changed.

Get to Know Our Chargers

We have four different chargers available, and variety really makes things accessible for everyone. Choose between the portable wall charger, USB charger, car adapter, and the Personal Charging Case.

Portable Wall Charger

This is the standard, basic e-cigarette battery charger. Like the types that come with cell phones, it plugs into the wall, connects to your e-cig, and charges. It can be used just about anywhere there is an outlet.

USB Charger

Most people use their computers pretty regularly, and the USB charger connects to your computer or keyboard’s USB hookup. Very convenient, and gives you the ability to charge in another simple and practical way.

Car Charger Adapter

This charger works with the USB charger to allow charging batteries using the power adapter in your car. This mobile charging setup is great for people who spend a lot of time in their cars and want to multitask as much as possible.

Personal Charging Case

We saved the best for last with this one. No e-smoker who vapes a lot should be without this charger. It lets you charge batteries wherever you are, without needing any type of outlet; computer, car, or wall! It’s a case, so it holds your batteries as it charges them, and it is small enough to fit into a pocket. It serves multitudes of purposes, is extremely convenient, and is an overall benefit to the customer. This accessory allows you to never have to worry about running out of power at the worst moment, it allows you to do as you please and know your batteries are ready when you want then!

E-Cigarette Parts & How They Work

eversmoke-cigaretteDo you ever wonder about how e-cigarettes work, and how their parts come together to get the job done? It’s really amazing when you think about how these parts work in conjunction to create an experience that is so much like actually smoking a cigarette.

State of the art technology has allowed us to create a product whose end result is giving users more satisfaction than ever!

The main components are the e-cigarette battery, cartridge, and charging device, but there really is so much more to each of these basics. Here is a look at e-cigarette parts and how they work, creating an incredible alternative to tobacco cigarettes.

E-Cigarette Battery: Essentially the body of the e-cigarette, and the most important part of vaping. When the user begins inhaling, or activates the battery by pressing a button if it’s a manual battery, the sensor gets activated. The sensor, also known as the “smart chip microprocessor” signals the battery to turn on, and sends a charge to the atomizer, located in the cartridge, to begin producing the vapor.

One important tip to remember is that batteries perform best when they are charged to 100% before the first use.

Lithium Ion Cell: The actual battery, and power source of the e-cigarette. It is rechargeable, and is regarded as the most powerful, and durable type of e-cigarette battery.

Aluminum Shell: The e-cigarette’s exterior. Lightweight yet quite durable, it is protective and still comfortable in the hand.

Sensor: Also called the Operating Mode Sensor, this mechanism triggers the smart chip, which signals the battery to activate the atomizer.

Smart Chip Microprocessor: Also known as the Microcomputer Smart Chip, this component is responsible for the actual technology that happens within the e-cigarette. It communicates to the battery, signaling the atomizer to vaporize the liquid nicotine.

Cartridges: These are the reusable “filters” that connect to the batteries. They come with a built-in atomizer, and are pre-filled with USA-Made nicotine juice. They screw onto the batteries, and the opposite end holds a silicon mouthpiece, which is very comfortable for the user to puff on.

Atomizer: The atomizer vaporizes the nicotine liquid, creating the vapor that is inhaled. Atomizers react to a charge sent by the battery. They are built into the cartridges because they do not have the capacity to last long.

Chargers: Three e-cigarette chargers are available for use when charging your batteries: the Portable Wall Charger, the USB Charger, and the Vehicle Charging Adapter. Also available is the Personal Charging Case, which allows for all the mobility an e-cigarette smoker could want because it charges batteries without a separate power source.

E-cigarettes utilize state of the art technology as well as impeccable engineering to create a satisfying, enjoyable smoking experience, minus the actual tobacco and smoke. Each part plays a crucial role in how it all comes together, allowing for the ultimate in modern innovation, as well as pleasure and convenience.

Traveling with E-Cigarettes – Having the Supplies You Need

Most people travel at some point or another, and throughout the world it is a major economic force. In the United States alone as a sector it grosses in upwards of $2 trillion annually! Vacations and tourism are on the agendas of millions, and there is no denying how rejuvenating a trip away can be. However traveling for business is often essential for millions of people, and accounts for more than $500 billion spent on travel in the US alone.

Traveling with e-cigarettes is much easier than smoking cigarettes!

So with all these people moving around constantly, heading from one place to another, if you are a smoker you know the difficulty that occurs when you are in need of some nicotine. Cigarettes are subject to restrictions everywhere, and smokers can find themselves more frustrated than ever when they leave town.

In the past, smoking in public, on airplanes, in trains, and in all varieties of public transit was entirely commonplace, but this is far from today’s reality. Second hand smoke is so frowned upon, it is not tolerated in many public places, especially those where many people will be congregating. So with smoking being such a difficult thing to do, it’s no wonder many smokers are embracing e-cigarettes.

Let’s face it: vaping is way more practical when you are traveling!

E-cigarettes travel much more easily than traditional cigarettes, but one thing to keep in mind is that while you can purchase your “essentials” like your toothbrush or shampoo abroad, you probably won’t be able to grab your e-cigs wherever you go. So when packing there are a few things you will need to take care of ahead of time to make sure you are all set while you’re away.

E-Cigarette Batteries: You should have a minimum of 2 batteries, though more can be helpful. Losing one is always a possibility, and it’s great to have an extra when one is charging.

E-Cigarette Chargers: At least one mode of charging is necessary, but having a few options is good; just like when you’re at home. In your hotel room, the wall charger can be very practical, however if you are very much on the go, the PCC (Personal Charging Case) may be the right thing to have. It charges batteries wherever you are without a separate power source. A USB charger is great if you are on business, and will be connected to your computer.

E-Cigarette Cartridges: You probably won’t be finding refills that fit your product wherever you travel, so make sure you pack enough. You know your particular usage, so make sure you have more carts than you will need. You don’t know if you will get set back or encounter delays, so why go without nicotine unnecessarily?

E-cigarettes can be used nearly anywhere, and when you travel they won’t put you in uncomfortable situations as that obnoxious smoking tourist! They don’t need to be lit with fire, and will give off no smoke, so you never have to be self conscious about offending others.

They allow you to enjoy the nicotine you crave, and enjoy your travels at the same time.

Thinking About Generic E-Cig Batteries? Think Again

If you are somewhat familiar with the e-cig industry, perhaps have used the products, maybe dabbled in a few brands, know the difference between the different styles, and generally even just have your feet wet with knowledge about them, you know how they work. You know you will need a battery, an atomizer, and juice to make the experience complete, and no matter what style or configuration you go with, those parts are essentials to how e-cigs work. However, regardless of your personal e-cigarette expertise, are you aware of all the options that lay before you? Including the shady and the fakes?

Right now, there are companies out there selling blanks and generic parts for your electronic cigarettes; batteries in particular. They promise you an authentic experience, capable of being totally compatible with products such as our cartridges and chargers, at a fraction of the cost. While the deals may seem appealing, don’t let them fool you! If you love EverSmoke products and EverSmoke quality, chances are you won’t be getting the same high standards elsewhere. A good deal is always appealing, but more often than not with companies such as these it’s too good to be true. It is extremely important to not get experimental with your electronic cigarette batteries because they are “electronic” in the end. They are extremely safe, but if you begin using them not according to your user’s manual directions, you could end up in a less than desirable, possibly hazardous situation. When you buy from EverSmoke, you know what you’re getting and you are backed by a company with very strong standards of customer service. If you aren’t satisfied, we’ll take care of you! However, when you buy from some random company, claiming their generics will work fine with ours, how do you really know? And will they stand by you should things go wrong?

EverSmoke e-cigs are known for their outstanding quality and great performance, why mess with it? Especially to save a few bucks, settling for some generic e-cig and taking chances with your cartridges and chargers? Save your money, stick with EverSmoke, and just keep your eyes out for some of the great sales and deals we run; which happen pretty often!
