There are many e-cigarette models available on the market these days, and it might be a constant headache to choose which one will suit you best.
It can be a bit overwhelming, especially when you take a look at so many pictures that have different colors, shapes, sizes and whatnot. Fortunately, there are only three kinds to choose from, and they are all easy to differentiate from the other.
What Are The Types of E-Cigarette Models?
The three e-cigarette types are named after the number of parts that they have. These are
- 1 piece
- 2 piece
- 3 piece
In terms of design style, you have four to choose from.
When we talk about the performance and function of e-cigarettes, it is entirely dependent on its three main parts, namely the atomizer, nicotine cartridge and batteries. How they are designed to work together, their attachment and packaging. Let’s take a closer look at the types.
The One Piece
This is the best choice for a beginner. The e-cigarette is already assembled all of a piece and you can smoke as soon as it’s out of the packaging, and you toss it once you’re done. There are some models that you need to activate by twisting the battery to turn it on, removing a foil tab or once again twisting to engage the nicotine cartridge with the atomizer.
The Two Piece
Another name for the two piece is the cartomizer. This is because the atomizer is already attached to the nicotine refill cartridge, enhancing the convenience. You can simply recharge the batteries and replace the nicotine cartridges to reuse.
The great thing about the 2 piece e-cigarette is since the atomizer is already built into the nicotine cartridge, it gets replaced when you use it up. Atomizers usually require replacing in a 3 piece e cigarette every six to eight weeks. Depending on your habit of smoking, the cartridge will get used up every day or two.
One problem with it however, is it’s nearly impossible to refill the cartridges with smoke juice (called dripping) because of the attachment of the atomizer to the nicotine cartridge.
The Three Piece
The three piece e-cigarette has all three parts separated from each other. Veteran e-cigarette users or vapers prefer to use this kind because of the versatility. There are three options for dripping or filling the nicotine cartridges, and you can modify the parts to your liking.
The problem with the three piece e-cigarette is maintenance. Since it is made up of three parts, you need to replace both the batteries and atomizers depending on your smoking habits.
Now it is easier for you to make a choice as to what is suitable for you and your lifestyle. Enjoy the process of choosing and have fun with what you get! It’s your pleasure that counts, after all.
