Types of electronic cigarettes tutorial. This video compares the different types of ecigs and vaporizers. It covers cartomizers, atomiziers, eGo ecigs (vape pens), mechanical mods (RBA), e-juice/e-liquid, and nicotine strengths.
The cigarette imitations ‘cigalikes’ mimic traditional tobacco cigarettes. They consist of a battery and cartomizer. Cartomizers consist of a cartridge to holds the nicotine liquid and an atomizer that vaporizes the liquid.
The eGo style ecigs (vape pens) consist of a battery and clearomizer. Clearomizers are a clear e-juice tank with an atomizer. E-juice or e-liquid is a nicotine flavored liquid.
Mods are for the hobbyist. There are variable voltage and mechanical type mods. The battery case itself is called the mod and the e-juice tank is the RBA/RDA (rebuildable atomizer). The differences with these models are that the atomizers have to be manually assembled.
