What does "vaping" stands for?
Vaping is a new trend where people are vaping instead of smoking, meaning that they vaporize liquid via a combo of a mod and an atomizer.
What do we call "mod"?
Mod is the device that gives current to an atomizer. The current warms a wire inside the atomizer and the liquid the atomizer evaporates.
What is a telescopic mod?
It is a mod that uses a telescope to adjust its length. That way it can accept any battery dimension.
What are the differences between electronic and mechanical mods?
Mechanical mods use directly the power of the battery when electronic mods use an electronic circuit (PCBA) that changes the current that the battery sends to the atomizer.
How does a proper mechanical mod have to be made?
A proper mechanical mod has to have side and symmetrical battery gas escape holes, these holes have to be made close to the positive pole of the battery and they must also have a way to prevent short circuits like a spring that melts in case of a short, or an electronic module that prevents shorts.
What are the kinds of mechanical mods?
Mechanical mods differ from each other because of the metal parts they are made of and the position of the button. There are side button mods (the most convenient), front button mods and in some of them, you need to push your mouth against the mod to fire.
What do we call an "electromechanical" mod?
They are electronic mods that use a PCBA without wires. Even their button is mechanical. The only mod like this is "Proteus" from "Golden Greek".
What are the kinds of electronic mods?
There are mods that use a PCBA based on changing the volts, others change the watts and others change the temperature that applies to the resistance inside the atomizer. Others have all the previous options.
How do I properly clean the contacts of my mechanical or electronic mods?
You can use a mesh stainless steel sheet to rub the surfaces that touch the battery.
What an atomizer is?
The atomizer is a device that evaporates the liquid. It carries a wire that gets hot because of the current that applies to it via a mod and evaporates the liquid around the wire via cotton that is attached to the wire coils.
What do we call "drip tip"?
It is α plastic, metallic or wooden small cylinder on the top of the atomizer that we put inside our mouth to suck the air that hits the wire.
What do we call "liquid control"?
Ιt is an atomizer's feature that lets more or less liquid absorbed by the wicking material, which is usually cotton.
What do we call "air control"?
Ιt is an atomizer's feature that lets more or less air hit the wire.
What do we call a "refilling cap"?
It is the atomizer's cap we use it to refill the atomizer with liquid.
What do we call a "collector tank"?
It is a special way to prevent atomizer leakage. It is a part of the atomizer that collects all the liquids that the wicking material didn't absorb.
How do we change the air that hits the wire inside an atomizer?
Usually with an air ring attached on the base or on the top of the atomizer or via pins with different holes.
What are the kinds of atomizers?
There are many kinds of atomizers like RTA, RDTA, DRIPPERS, SQUONK ATOMIZERS. The main difference is the amount of air that hits the resistance. Especially drippers don't carry a tank but you have to refill them very often with liquid by putting liquid drops inside it by hand or by squeezing a bottle that is attached to the mod. The squonk atomizers are atomizers that work with their tank but they also give the ability for squonking. Also there are atomizers that can fit 2 or more coils in parallel.
Why my atomizer doesn't work?
Check if the center post makes contact with the post of the mod, check if the wire is attached properly on the atomizer, check if the button of your mod works properly, and also check if there is a short circuit that usually happens inside the atomizer when the wire touches one of the atomizer's posts, or the leg of the wire that is attached on the positive post of the atomizer also touches any place that plays the role of the negative pole.
If you use an electronic mod, please check if your mod can handle the resistance.
