Kick: The name used to describe the feeling at the back of the throat when an inhalation of vapour reaches that spot. The name of a clever add-on device produced by Evolv Vapor which is used to regulate the heat produced by certain mechanical mods. Knuckle Head: This is an adjustable drip tip. It can […]


Leaking: This can happen when too much Juice is added to an atomizer or cartomizer. Juice can leak out of the bottom of the heating element and onto the battery, which in some cases can cause damage to the device (as is the case with Automatic Batteries). LED: Abbreviation for Light Emitting Diode. Light Emitting […]


mAh: The term “mAh” references to Milliamp per Hour. Manual: A style of electronic cigarette that has a button (mounted usually on the top side of the battery) that when pushed, activates the heating element. The button must be pushed in order to produce vapor from the atomizer/cartomizer. It is considered by some to be […]


Nic: An abbreviation for Nicotine. Nic-Juice: A slang term to denote an e-liquid with nicotine; it would NOT be used for e-liquid with zero nicotine. Nichrome: One of the two main types of resistance wire used for the heating coil in an atomizer or cartomizer. The other is Kanthal. NiMH: Ni-MH stands for Nickel-Metal Hydride. […]


Ohm: A measure of electrical resistance. A lower number indicates lower resistance and therefore creates faster heating. Usually pertains to atomizer


Pass-through: (PT) A Pass-through can be either a device itself or part of an electronic cigarette or mod. It is the device itself, you can connect your atty or carto to it and then plug it into the USB port of a computer or USB wall adapter. It receives power through either. Pass-through is built […]


RBA: Abbreviation for Rebuildable atomizer. Rebuildable Atomizer: Rebuildable Atomizers vary in design. Some have a fabric wick, while some stay more pure from burning elements and use SS mesh and kanthal wire. Rebuildable atomizers are meant to save on cost and be readily fix-able. Some incorporate a tank for holding e-liquid. Resistance Wire: What the […]


SB: An acronym for Silver Bullet; this is a large battery e-cig. SD: Refers to Screwdriver; which is a fat ecig battery. Smoke Juice: Also referred to as E-Liquid, Liquid, Juice, or E-Juice. This is the liquid that is vaporized when using an electronic cigarette. Standard Resistance: A standard resistance atomizer is 2.5 ohms, cartomizer […]


Tail-Piping: Specific to atomizers, this is when a user takes a vape directly off of an atomizer without a drip tip or a cartridge. Tank: A special type of cartridge that holds considerably more liquid than cartridges with filler. Usually used with a cartomizer and sometimes an atomizer. You just fill them up with liquid […]


Unflavored E-Liquid: An E-liquid combining a base liquid and nicotine, but no flavoring. Unprotected vs. Protected Batteries & Devices: Protected batteries and devices will contain protection circuits. This circuit is designed to stop the battery from charging or discharging or the device from working in certain circumstances. These circumstances can include over-charging, over-discharging, short-circuit, and […]
