How a Smoke Anywhere For Penny's® Electronic Cigarette Works

To a new user, the Electronic Cigarette may seem like a complicated futuristic device. To some degree they wouldn't be entirely incorrect, but its functionality is actually quite simple. In order to fully understand how it works you must first understand the pieces that make up the e-cig. No matter what brand or model of electronic cigarette you purchase or use there are three main components that are required: a battery, an atomizer/cartomizer, and an E-liquid delivery system such as a cartridge or tank.  

The battery simply supplies power to the atomizer/cartomizer and can be activated manually by a button or automatically when taking a draw depending on the type of battery chosen. E-cig batteries are generally lithium-ion batteries that can be recharged many times over. They are available in all shapes and sizes, but the larger the battery, the longer it will last between charges.

The atomizer is the actual working part of the e-cig that makes it possible to deliver the nicotine in the E-liquid to the user without actually burning anything. While again there are many different sizes and styles of atomizers, they all function in a similar fashion. Inside of each atomizer is a small coil that heats up when the battery is activated much the same way that the filament in a light bulb heats up and produces light when power is supplied. The heat from the coil inside the atomizer is what actually vaporizes the E-liquid so that it can be inhaled by the user. Many of the atomizer, cartomizer, and other products of a similar function are disposable parts and may be required to purchase additional quantity.

The E-liquid delivery system of the electronic cigarette comes in many forms. The most common form is the cartridge or tank. It is normally attached directly to the atomizer and may or may not contain filler material. Regardless of design its purpose is to store E-liquid until needed and then deliver the liquid to the atomizer at a steady and consistent rate. The E-liquid delivery system also doubles as the mouthpiece in most cases with small channels that route the vapor from the atomizer, around the E-liquid chamber and to the user’s mouth.

Sometimes the atomizer and cartridge are combined into one piece called a cartomizer. Cartomizers are preferred by many users because of how simple they are to use as well as their ability to hold larger volumes of E-liquid, making refills less frequent. However, cartomizers are built to be disposable and therefore while they can be refilled, they generally do not last as long as stand along atomizers and cartridges.

The E-liquid used in the electronic cigarette is made up of several ingredients. The main ingredient may be either propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG) which serves as the diluting and carrying agent for the nicotine and flavoring in the E-liquid. As the vapor is inhaled by the user they are able to both taste the flavoring and absorb the nicotine that is diluted in the E-liquid. Both VG and PG are USP Food Grade ingredients, have been approved by the FDA for consumption, and are commonly found in many household items such as toothpaste. While very similar in nature, VG is somewhat thicker than PG and therefore provides more vapor, but also tends to alter or dull the flavor slightly and reduce the amount of throat hit experienced by the user. The mixture percentages of each user are merely personal preference based on the tradeoff between flavor, throat hit, and vapor production.

 

What is the legal age to purchase any products from Smoke Anywhere For Penny's®?

By law, you are required to be atleast 18 years of age to purchase any of the products on our site.

 

Why do I want an Electronic Cigarette?

There are many reasons you would want an electronic cigarette. It is common knowledge that cigarettes and other tobacco products have detrimental effects on your health, and electronic cigarettes are a tool that you can use to take yourself off of the use of tobacco products, even going as far as to rid yourself of the nicotine addiction entirely.

Another major pro to having an electronic cigarette is the cost associated with continued use. The average user will go through a 10ml bottle in approximately 1.5 - 2 weeks time (This again may vary depending on the type of equipment you may be using and how frequently you use the product.). With the cost of a 10ml bottle being roughly $5.95 (Price will vary with nicotine content, and any promotion we may be running.), you can see the potential savings you will have when switching to an electronic cigarette!

 

How long does a Smoke Anywhere for Penny's® Electronic Cigarette last before needed to recharge?

An electronic cigarette uses a lithium battery. There are plenty of options available in battery type, as you will find on our site, and a major factor in battery life is frequency of use. A rechargeable battery could last anywhere from 3 hours to 3 days, again relying greatly on frequency of use.

What are the components in the E-Liquid that I am inhaling?

This is a very common question and is a very simple answer once you break it down. The components in your liquid are: flavoring, nicotine content, and your liquid base.

Nicotine Content

The nicotine strength is measured in miligrams(mg) and the default options are as follows:

  • 48mg - Extremely High - This is only available to vendors.
  • 36mg - Very High - Suggested for smokers who are smoking over two packs a day.
  • 24mg - High - Suggested for smokers who are smoking between one to two packs a day.
  • 18mg - Medium - Suggested for smokers who are smoking around a pack a day.
  • 12mg - Low - Suggested for smokers who are less than a pack a day.
  • 6mg - Very Low - Suggested for smokers who are keeping their nicotine to a minimum.
  • 0mg - None - Suggested for people who are completely off nicotine.

All of our liquid is completely custom-blended to tailor to your specific needs and requests. The nicotine content listed above is our default amounts, set to help make your ordering and understanding more simple. If you feel that you would like a nicotine level in between what you see listed, please let us know in the comment section of your order and we will be sure to blend it that way.

Liquid Base

The liquid used in electronic cigarettes, often called E-Liquid, is usually a base mixture of Propylene Glycol (PG) and/or Vegetable Glycerin (VG) with flavoring and/or nicotine added according to preference.  As the vapor is inhaled by the user they are able to both taste the flavoring and absorb the nicotine that is diluted in the E-liquid, if any.

Both PG and VG are considered GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA and EPA.  They are common ingredients found in many of the foods we eat, cosmetics we use, medications we take, and common household items such as toothpaste, mouthwash, and soap. They are also used in the fog machines used in theaters and night clubs.

Propylene Glycol

PG is a very thin liquid that dilutes and carries flavors very well, making it the optimal base for mixing, but when thinned out even further by the addition of flavoring and nicotine it may produce less vapor. Also, a very small percentage of the population experiences a sensitivity to PG that may present itself in a number of ways from throat irritation to skin irritation; however, most people with this sensitivity are still able to use liquids that contain a lower amount of PG without any negative effects.

Vegetable Glycerin

VG is a slightly sweet and very thick liquid in its pure form, which results in much higher vapor production than PG. However, the downside to this thickness is that it may cause wicking, clogging, or burning issues in some devices if the VG concentration in the liquid is too high. Also, due to the inherent sweetness of VG it tends to alter or dull the flavor slightly and reduce the amount of throat hit experienced by the user.

 

Here, at Smoke Anywhere For Penny's® we recommend a 50/50 blend of both PG and VG, as it provides a great mixture of flavor and throat hit (PG), while producing a good amount of vapor (VG). As mentioned before, all of our liquid is custom-blended so we can provide you a base mix of any combination you want.

Typically when using Clearomizers, Cartomizers, Tanks and Standard Atomizers, we recommend the 50/50 blend. However when using certain products (ie: Rebuidable Atomizers), one may consider using a blend that it more on the VG side. (Your experience with liquid and a particular part may vary. For suggestions on what blend to use, feel free to ask us through our contact page or contact us via telephone.)

2.5ohms may cause some liquid to burn. Lower resistances may not work and will tend to burn liquid or blow out the atomizer or cartomizer.

 2.0ohm

6.0v Mods

3.2ohm - 5.0ohm

Lower ohms will tend to burn out the atomizer or cartomizer, or burn the liquid.

 2.5ohm

7.0v Mods

4.5ohm - 5.0ohm

Personal preference on most of these but lower than 4.0ohms tends to burn liquid and will burn out atomizers and cartomizers more quickly.

 3.0ohm

 

What is RMS and MEA?

Option Eight, RMS and MEA What RMS means is root mean average. What MEA means is mean average. These are simply two different ways of calculate the average output of a fluctuating signal. MEA uses a pulse method. For example, if you want your voltage to be 3.7, the MEA setting will send a pulse to the coil between that goes back and forward between 0.0 and around 4.8 volts to give it an average of 3.7 volts. If you choose the MEA setting, your voltage could end up being higher than you set it, especially at low voltages. The RMS setting has a much more complicated way of calculating the voltage, but it is much more accurate, so we recommend that you change it to RMS and leave it on RMS.
