Classic e-vapor products
Classic e-cigarettes use a “coil & wick” system to heat a nicotine-containing solution. The wick draws the nicotine-containing liquid onto a coil-heating element to heat the liquid and create a vaporized aerosol. In these systems, the temperature of the heater can vary significantly depending on how strongly the e-cigarette is puffed. Several studies have shown that puffing on an e-cigarette when the liquid level is low results in "dry-puffs" that can drastically change the chemistry of the aerosol. Under these conditions, the levels of a number of harmful chemicals are significantly higher1,2 compared to levels found in e-cigarettes that have sufficient liquid.
Our latest e-vapor product uses closed-system e-liquid caps to prevent tampering and liquid leakage. A new heating element and mouthpiece are built into each replaceable cap to maintain product hygiene. Three main elements were further developed to make our latest e-vapor product a more acceptable smoke-free alternative: the mesh heater, the heat-control system, and the low liquid detection system.
The current generation wick is eliminated and the coil is replaced by a metal mesh. When the liquid is introduced to the mesh heater the increased surface area provided by the mesh material helps heat the liquid in a more consistent way than current generation coil & wick systems.
The temperature of the heater is maintained between 200-220 °C, rather than varying depending on the puff strength.
The “low-liquid detection system” will cut off the power supplied to the mesh heater once the level of the liquid has dropped below a certain level, eliminating "dry-puffs".
We have scientifically demonstrated that using our e-cigarettes indoors, when permitted, has no negative effect on overall air quality.
