Anatomy of an E-Cig, From Australia's Premier Online Purveyor of Electronic Cigarettes

Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you're well aware that popularity of the electronic cigarette in Australia has been swelling for the last few years. It's an expanding market with a lot of potential. The technology is rapidly advancing, and there's no better time to start investing in vaping gear. If you're new to the game, however, you might be confused about all the products out there, and might not even know how an electronic cigarette works. Lucky for you then that Victory Vape, curators of quality electronic cigarettes in Australia, are here to inform you about the most essential components of e-cigs and vapes.

Elements of the Average Electronic Cigarette

The Battery. They're called electronic cigarettes for a reason. These things need power to work, and they get it from their batteries. In electronic cigarettes with an automatic switch system, a sensor activates when the user begins to inhale, sending a charge and allowing the user to draw in the vapour. This is useful because it limits the batteries' power consumption, extending the life of the device. Also, the automatic devices function more like regular cigars or cigarettes, making them a bit more beginner friendly. Manual e-cigs require users to push down a button before taking a drag. It may take some time to get used to, but the superior level of control is worth the trade-off for some. While some units may have built-in batteries, others have removable batteries which are rechargeable. These are often lithium-ion batteries and are considered the most powerful of all available electronic cigarette batteries. Some of the recently released high end mods also use LiPo batteries. Victory Vape only stocks quality authentic batteries to insure personal safety.

The Tank— the exterior of the e-cigarette. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours, and are generally fashioned from aluminium. At the end of the shell is a mouthpiece from which the user can draw vapour. The mouthpiece can either be built into the e-cig's cartridge to more closely resemble an old-school cigarette, or it could be a custom item with an interestingly shaped design. In the early days of vaping, some electronic cigarettes used cartridges or cartomisers. However these are no longer popular and they are an outdated technology.

The Atomiser or Coil— is where the magic happens. The atomiser converts the liquid in your e-cig's tank into a vapour which can be inhaled. The atomiser usually has a heating coil that excites the liquid, transforming it into vapour. Coils are most often constructed from kanthal wire, stainless steel, titanium, or nickel. Newer model e-cigs, however, are starting to use ceramic heating coils.
