Have you ever wondered how the different components of an e-cigarette come together?
Non-smokers are usually pretty gloomy when they see a vaper for the first time – and mistakenly think that e-cigarettes are harmful because they look like smoking. This is partially why some Britons are against public vaping, with tougher bans continually being enforced across the UK.
That said, vapers who use e-cigarettes regularly will know that the main issue is misinformation, as many people don’t understand the science behind vaporizers.
Weariness of new technology goes back centuries. Back when the world’s first-ever railway line launched in 1825, many people were horrified. The public feared that travelling as fast as 30mph could do grave damage to the human body – and stories circulated about gruesome deaths where passengers’ bodies melted. Even though deaths related to horse-drawn carriages were a much bigger issue at the time, many people were initially reluctant to travel by train because they were deemed dangerous.
These superstitions fell away as the years passed, mainly because the public learned how trains worked and grew to like them after biting the bullet and riding one for the first time. These days, trains can travel hundreds of miles an hour – and it’s even possible to hitch a ride in a jet travelling faster than the speed of sound.
Based on this history, we think that it’s best to clear the air about e-cigarettes and boost public awareness about how these devices work – and emphasise that the vapour they produce is nothing to be scared of.
As part of this, we’ve disassembled one of our hi-tech vaporizers to show what each component does, and how they work together to create a first-class vaping experience.
The battery, normally found at an e-cigarette’s bottom end, provides power and helps all of the other components operate as they should. Usually, Lithium-ion batteries are used because they can be recharged easily, making them more affordable for vapers. You can either choose from an automatic or a manual battery (find out which one will suit you best here).
One of VaporFi’s most sought after vaporizers is the Platinum Pro. It boasts a 650mAh battery, allowing you to vape without interruption for longer.

Most of the time, the battery will be connected to the atomizer – and this is the component which transforms e-liquid into vapour. This is thanks to an integrated heating coil which is exposed to your e-liquid. It takes mere seconds for the rising temperatures to create flavourful, tasty vapour.
We’re getting towards the top end of the vaporizer now, as it’s time to discuss the tank. This is the place where you store e-liquid, and if you’re using a disposable e-cigarette which cannot be refilled, it may be referred to as a cartridge. Most new models combine atomizers and cartridges into one component called a cartomizer.
VaporFi’s Platinum Pro vaporizer offers cutting-edge technology through what is known as a clearomizer tank. They’re very similar to cartomizers, but the main difference is their transparency, enabling you to see at a glance when you need to top up on e-liquid.
No matter what device you get, it’s going to come with a mouthpiece. The design of this is crucial, as it ensures vapour makes its way from the atomizer to your mouth. In some cases, this is integrated into the cartridge itself to replicate the look and feel of old-fashioned cigarettes – and the VaporFi Express device is a good example of this.
There are loads of other accessories you can purchase to enhance your vape – but these are the key components you’ll need to get off the ground.
