THE CORE COMPONENTS
There are a large variety of shapes and styles available in the vape pen market, but the core components are often very similar.For our purposes, we’ll focus on a standard, portable vape pen which is made up of five main components.
The battery is the vape pen’s power source, providing the charge needed to create heat for vaporization. Batteries come in a range of sizes, but smaller batteries are often preferable for a sleek, low-profile, portable design. Many vape pens are equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
Sensors within the battery can work to turn the vape pen on when the consumer inhales. These sensors also regulate things like temperature and length of heating. In smart vapes, the device itself can include built-in, regulating software.
3) HEATING CHAMBER
The heating element is also known as the atomizer or cartomizer. It often features ceramic coils and a cotton wick that heat the oil within the cartridge, converting it into vapor. A predetermined level of resistance (measured in ohms) regulates the flow of electricity to the coils.
This vital component holds the cannabis oil. Cartridges can either be refillable or disposable, and are often packaged together with the heating chamber.
At the top of the vape pen, the mouthpiece funnels inhaled vapor. Mouthpieces can come in a variety of materials and shapes, designed predominantly for comfort.
