The Heating Element
(aka; atomizer, cartomizer)
The purpose of the heating element is to turn your eliquid (see below) into vapor. The heating element of the electronic cigarette is disposable. This is good to keep in mind when making a purchase and trying to figure out which one is right for you. It’s not permanent. Try them all.
Certain styles of heating elements last longer than others. There are many different ways to vaporize your e-liquid. Most kits will ship with one or several of either a cart/cartridge, carto/cartomizer or atty/atomizer – or a combination of the three.
