E-Cigarette Types

Because of different needs, electronic cigarette manufacturers have developed various types of e-cigarettes, types that vary in cost as well as structure. These portable electrical devices designed to simulate smoking with the intention of omitting certain health risks are available in different styles and types, so once you’ve decided to switch your tobacco smoking habits with e-smoking or ‘vaping’, you need to make sure you’ve got everything nailed down, from understanding how e-cigarettes work to the types available to choose from.

Once you’ve selected your e-cigarette design or style, you can decide on the type of e-cigarette that suits your needs best. There are three types of e-cigarettes on the market, so find out their pros and cons to determine which one suits you best.

Disposable electronic cigarettes

Disposable electronic cigarettes come with pre-charged batteries and non refillable cartridges, meaning once you’ve used-up the e-liquid or battery, the unit can be disposed as it is no longer usable. The disposable cigarette is perfect for e-smoke novices which want to get an idea on whether or not the product is for them.

2 Piece Electronic Cigarettes

Two piece electronic cigarettes are the most popular and are composed out of two parts, a rechargeable battery and a cartridge which features a built-in atomizer, part that is also known as a cartomizer. The pros of these e-cigarette types are the easy system, switching to another flavor without trouble and a new atomizer every time the cartridge needs replacing, while the cons are a more difficult refill process due to the built-in atomizer and occasional defective cartridges.

3 Piece Electronic Cigarettes

The three piece e-cigarette consists out of a battery, an atomizer and a cartridge which are all separate pieces and attach to one another easily. The battery is screwed onto the atomizer and the nicotine/flavor cartridge is either screwed on or forced into the atomizer. The pros of the three piece e-cigarettes are quick and easy assembly and easy steps to refilling and replacing the cartridge and atomizer. The cons on the other hand are represented by the relative short lifespan of atomizers which last between 6 to 12 weeks before they need to be replaced and the need to switch cartridges when you switch to another flavor, if you don’t want to smoke a mix the different flavors.
