What is a vapor device and How do they work?

Vapor Devices consist of 3 components; a battery, an atomizer and a cartridge (Tank). The atomizer heats the air drawn into the device to a high enough temperature that it vaporizes the eliquid (Usually Flavored E-Liquid) in a replaceable/refillable cartridge (these need to be replaced every 2 weeks for the best vaping experience) The vapor is then inhaled simulating the smoking experience and satisfying the nicotine craving. The simulated “smoke” is just vapor that evaporates in a few seconds.

 

Do vaping devices require any maintenance?
