Vaping? Smoke Juice? Atomizer? What?!?!
If you are new to the world of “vaping,” (Don’t be afraid to admit it, we all had to start somewhere) the bevy of associated lingo and slang can seem like quite an obstacle. But not to fear – if you do not know the difference between smoke juice and a box of juice, you have stumbled upon a great source. Read below for a quick definition to some common e-cigarette terms.
Your Electronic Cigarette Dictionary
Atomizer: The atomizer is the heating element, responsible for creating the “vapor.” In simple terms, the atomizer heats the flavor solution (or smoke juice) and vaporizes it. In a blu Electronic Cigarette, the atomizer is contained within the flavor cartridge.
Analog Cigarette: Analog cigarette is a fancy way of referring to a regular, old-fashioned tobacco cigarette.
Cartomizer: A cartomizer refers to an electronic cigarette cartridge with a self-contained atomizer. Because they are one unit (cartridge and atomizer), the user receives a new atomizer every time they replace the flavor cartridge, allowing for optimum performance.
Disposable: Disposable electronic cigarettes come fully assembled, and cannot be recharged or refilled. They are simply bought, used, and discarded. This makes them a great choice for first time e-cig users or travelers.
e-Juice (e-liquid): E-liquid or e-juice is the solution contained within the electronic cigarette cartridge. This liquid is heated and vaporized inside the e-cigarette.
e-Cig (e-cigarette): This is simply an abbreviated way to refer to an electronic cigarette
Smoke Juice: This is the same thing as e-liquid or e-juice. It is the liquid that gets heated and turns to vapor.
Personal Vaporizer: This is just a fancy way of saying “electronic cigarette.”
Starter Kit: If you are new to electronic cigarettes (or vaping), you will need an e-cigarette starter kit. This normally contains a case, flavor cartridges, batteries, and charger.
Throat Hit: This basically refers to the sensation received from inhaling on an analog cigarette or electronic cigarette.
Vapor: E-cigs do not have combustion; this means there is no smoke. Instead, the bi-product is a vapor.
Vaping (Vape): Electronic cigarettes do not produce smoke; just vapor. So it’s called vaping, not smoking.
