The tank system is an important part of any e-cigarette brand. This is the main component that determines whether the product is consumer friendly or not as it is where the e-liquid component of the cigarette is stored. The system provides a basis for filling and holding the e-liquid to prepare it for vaping by the batteries held in the e-cigarette. Most tanks are clear to allow the holder to monitor the levels of the juice.
In order to understand the processes behind the system, one should first consider the different units in the tank. The coil is responsible for heating the e-liquid into a vapor product. This mid-range coil controls the vapor temperature to ensure that the user’s throat is not burned up. The filters, or customizers, are also vital units inside the tank as they hold the added liquid. They can come pre-filled with the e-juice but most users prefer when they are blank.
When the e-juice is filled into the tank by unscrewing the bottom and holding it up, the liquid trickles into the inner cartridge compartment. Inside the compartment, the wick, which is already submerged in the juice, starts to absorb the wet conditions of the juice. The coil, which is built in with the wick, gets activated to work by screwing on the battery. The coil is then heated by the battery power and slowly starts heating the e-liquid inside the tank. As the juice gets warmed slowly by the heat, it starts to produce a pleasant vapor that is laced with the relevant flavor from the juice, from Belgian Cocoa to Cafe Mocha.
As the user puffs away the vapor, the e-juice levels decrease, and this can be monitored from the visible tank. Every drop of the juice is fed into the coil by the wick until the juice levels goes down. At this point, the tank is ready for a refill. The capacity levels of the tank determine how long one will use the e-cigarette before performing a refill. When vapor production dies off, the tank is ready to be cleaned.
