Vaping: A person using a personal vaporizer AKA E cig.
PV and APV: Stands for “Personal vaporizer” or “Advanced Personal vaporizer” This is the term recognized in the “ecig” market as a more accurate name for the modern day devices used for the vaporization of nicotine e liquid.
Cig-alike: This is ecig style that looks a lot like a cigarette, they often have a light at the end of the device that lights up when you puff on it. They are most often automatic batteries, meaning no button is pressed in order to use them, just simply puff on them. Perfect entry level to vaping. Please visit the Flint section for more info.
510: This is the type of connection that most modern pv’s use, it’s the connector part that your tanks/cartomizers screw into.
Atomizer: AKA Atty. The atomizer connects to the battery, and contains the heating element which produces the vapor. Atomizers are considered throw-away parts. The atomizer WILL GO OUT. It is highly recommended that you keep at least 2 extra atomizers at all times.
Cartomizer: This is the combination of a cartridge and an atomizer. It is a slim metal tube that is filled with a poly fill cotton material, it has a vertical atomizer that runs up through the center of the tube. You soak the cotton with your e liquid and use it to vape out of.
Tank: A juice delivery system that uses a variety of different methods to get juice to an atomizer to be warmed then vaped.
Wick, head, coil: These are the replaceable atomizer heads.
MAH: Milliamps per hour
Pass-through: A pv that can be vaped while it is charging. This one requires the passthrough charging cord.
Dripping: This method is when you would use a drip tip (mouthpiece that goes on the atomizer) and you drip your juice directly onto the atomizer(heating coil). It takes three drops which is good for about 5-10 puffs (depending on voltage, and size of your pulls) however, you have to continue dripping. This provides an excellent throat hit and flavor.
Drip Tips: This is a mouthpiece needed for dripping, that connects directly to the atomizer.
MOD This is a term used to describe the big battery pvs..the ones that usually look sort of like flashlights. The name mod comes from the fact that they were originally a “modified electronic cig” Modified for usage with bigger batteries. There are several different shapes and sizes of “mods” from boxes, to big tubes so basically anything that is not an eGo style or a cig alike is considered a mod, or more accurately an APV
Tips: This is just a shortened way of referring to a drip tip, although commonly used to describe the tanks, however that is inaccurate. A tank is a tank, and it comes with a tip.
Throat Hit: This is the feeling in your throat that you receive from traditional cigarettes.
RBA: Rebuildable Atomizer. These are your more advanced systems that are intended not for the novice vaper. The atomizer section is rebuilt by you taking the raw materials making your own wicks and coils.
Resistance: Too complicated to describe here on this page, basically a simple short cut is: the lower the resistance of your atty/wick the lower the voltage needed to get a good vape. The higher the resistance the higher you can turn you voltage up and get a warmer thicker vape.
Ejuice- Commonly simply referred to as “juice”A consumable liquid that consist of a combination of nicotine, propylene glycol, flavoring, and vegetable glycerin and is available in several different flavors and strengths, this is the stuff that you vaporize For a full list of our flavors go HERE
