Adapter: a specialized piece of equipment allowing the use of atomizers and batteries that are not designed to be used together.
Battery: (Bat) the electronic, rechargeable, device used as an energy source to provide the heat vaporize the E-juice in the atomizer.
Cartomizer: An e-cig part which combines the cartridge and atomizer into one piece of equipment
Cartridge: a part of an e-cig which holds the e-juice which has not yet been vaporized. It is generally filled with absorbent material.
Draw: (Pull) the act of drawing the vaporized e-juice from the e-cig.
Dripping: Dripping e-juice directly into the atomizer, said to improve flavor and throat hit when compared with the use of a cartridge. See How to refill an electronic cigarette.
Drip Tip: A mouth piece specially designed for dripping
E-Cig: (Electronic cigarette, personal vaporizer, smokeless cigarette) terms referring to the device(s) used for vaping
E-liquid: (e-juice, juice, liquid) the fluid that is vaporized and provides the vapor from the e-cig. E-liquid generally contains various amounts of nicotine, distilled water, natural and/or artificial flavoring, food grade glycerol and either Vegetable Glycerin (VG) or Propylene Glycol (PG)
Flooding: occurs when too much e-liquid has gotten into the atomizer, impeding the necessary airflow, which decreases or prohibits vapor production and may influence flavor.
mHa: refers to the capacity of the battery.
Mod: Modification made to improve function of e-cigs. Often used to increase vapor production, flavor and throat hit.
Nicotine Level: the amount of nicotine contained in the E-juice. This is measured in Mg/ml.
Passthrough/Passthru: a device that allows an E-Cig to be connected to any USB port, letting the user vape continuously without using up charged batteries.
PCC: (Personal Charging Device) a carrying case which charges E-Cig batteries on the go. Often include space to carry one or two extra batteries, extra cartridges and some extra E-juice.
PG: (Propylene Glycol) E-juice base liquid comprised mostly of propylene glycol. Some have reported a sore throat with the use of PG fluids. In such cases a switch to VG based e-juice often solves the problem.
Throat Hit: The sensation of the vapor hitting the back of the throat while vaping.
Vaping: The act of using an electronic cigarette, similar to the use of the word smoking when referring to smoking cigarettes.
VG: refers to Vegetable Glycerin based e-fluids.
