A vapor cigarette cartridge is one of the main three components that make up a vapor cigarette. A cartridge is a replaceable element and sits in the middle between an atomizer and a battery. Mini-style vapor cigarettes contain a cartomizer–an all-in-one combined atomizer and cartridge unit. Electronic cigarette cartridges come with either a whistle-shaped, tapered or the more familiar rounded end.
PRE-FILLED VAPOR CIGARETTE CARTRIDGE
A vapor cigarette come as pre-filled or refillable. A pre-filled vapor cigarette cartridge contains a piece of absorbent lint-type fabric, which is impregnated with e-liquid. When e-liquid gets gradually used up and the cartridge filler dries out the cartridge needs to be replaced with another pre-filled cart. Pre-filled vapor cigarette cartridges are usually offered in multi-packs. A vapor cigarette kit with a set of pre-filled cartridges is the best option for beginners since refilling can be a bit cumbersome.
REFILLABLE VAPOR CIGARETTE CARTRIDGE
Some pre-filled cartridges can be re-filled. Manufacturers also sell empty cartridges that can be refilled at home. Refills are sold in bottles for this purpose and are easy to find and very cheap to buy. Many smokers prefer to cut down on costs and waste by refilling used cartridges at home. An over used refillable cartridge can potentially damage the atomizing unit and needs changing every 10-15 top ups.
HOW LONG VAPOR CIGARETTE CARTRIDGE LASTS
The length of time each electronic cigarette cartridge lasts before it needs replacing or refilling depends largely on the e cig model type and how often it is used. Some manufacturers claim their refills to be equivalent to 20 or even 36 tobacco cigarettes. According to vapor cigarette smokers it is far from reality. A heavy smoker might expect to use between 3 and 5 cartridges a day and the average duration of a cartridge is equivalent to about 7-10 traditional cigarettes. The visible reduction in vapor released by a vapor cigarette is a an indication that the e-liquid in the cartridge is running out, and the cartridge needs to be refilled or replaced.
