Factory built Clearomizer/Atomizers/Cartomizers : Resistance

Standard Resistance (SR) (Usually 2.4 Ohms and above) is usually chosen by a user who has previously smoked light to medium strength tobacco cigarettes.

Low Resistance (LR) (Usually 2.2 Ohms and below) is usually chosen by a user who has previously smoked high to very high strength tobacco cigarettes.

Batteries : mAh

Each battery will have a mAh (milliamps per hour) capacity. This informs the user how long the battery should last before needing to be recharged.

As a rule of thumb, a user can compare each 100 mAh (milliamps) of battery to approximately 1 hour of vaping.

The bigger the mAh, the longer the battery will last. This may also mean, the longer/wider and heavier the battery may be to use and a longer time period to charge.

Not all batteries are created equal. Just like the Duracell Bunny…High quality cells will last longer and hold their charge longer. Also there are high and low grade PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards)…the computer bit that regulates the voltage, charging etc.

Always choose a high quality charger to charge li-ion cells and more so with cells which are used by MODs eg: 18350 / 18500 / 18650. We recommend never to compromise on finance just to get a cheap charger. Li-ion cells have great power, however, with great power…comes great responsibility.


Clearomizers/Glassomizers) do not require a cartridge as the cartridge is built into the clearomizer and are seen as a one piece unit. These are easily the most commonly used among vapers.

Eg: eGo-CE4/CE5/CE6 Clearomizer, eVod Clearomizer, Protank, Nautilus Glassomizer etc.

No cartridge required. Eg:Battery + Clearomizer (or glassomizer) = 2 piece e-cig. (Most popular)


E-Liquid:

Generally there are 2 bases used. VG (Vegetable Glycerine) or PG (Propylene Glycol). Also added are flavouring and nicotine (no nicotine added if 0 mg nicotine)

VG is a thicker liquid in consistency, gives a soft (tho noticeable) throat hit and provides plenty of vapour. (VG has a sweet ‘base’)

PG is thinner liquid in consistency, gives a harder throat hit, however, produces less vapour. (PG can also enhance flavour) ‘Some’ users can show an allergic reaction to PG. In this case, usually VG can be used.

(It is quite common to mix %VG with %PG to find what suits you best)

For a ‘guide’ of what strength may suit, go to our FAQs (Question 9) Please note: It is just a guide for new users as other factors can change your choice of nicotine strength


The below can only be used as a ‘guide’

0 mg has 0 mg nicotine containing no nicotine.

12 mg has 12 mg of nicotine and is generally regarded as a medium strength for light to medium cigarette users.

24 mg has 24 mg of nicotine and is generally regarded as a high to v.high strength for heavy to v. heavy cigarette users.


Amount/measure of liquid is measured in ml (millilitres).

Eg: 10 ml, 20 ml, 35 ml and 50ml bottles.


Nicotine Strength/Density is measured in mg (milligrams).

Eg: 0 mg, 12 mg, 24 mg.


Note : It is also possible to mix nicotine strengths to increase or decrease the nicotine Density.

Eg: (Coffee Flavour)

If you mix 10 ml/ 0 mg of Coffee with an equal 10 ml /12 mg - Coffee                                 you should get Approx:  20 ml / 6 mg - Coffee


If you mix 10 ml/ 0 mg of Coffee with an equal 10 ml /24 mg - Coffee                                  you should get Approx: 20 ml /12 mg - Coffee

 

If you mix 10 ml/12 mg of Coffee with an equal 10 ml /24 mg - Coffee                                  you should get Approx: 20 ml /18 mg - Coffee
