2 coils are commonly used in tanks/clearomizers. Can produce twice as much vapor or the same amount of it twice as fast from the standard. Is supposed to last longer. In the picture, you can see two bottom coil clearomizers - single (left) and dual (right).

These two belong to Apollo collection. Dual coil is from Apollo Endeavor Kit (link to our review).

electronic cigarette

inhaler, consisting of battery, atomizer and cartridge, vaporizes e- liquid, thus simulating the act of tobacco smoking. Hence also referred to as Personal Vaporizers (PV).

eGo - variable voltage battery - LCD display showing how much is left until battery runs out, the ring below the button showing voltage regulated by pressing the button five times (3.2V - red, 3.7V - purple, 4.2V - blue) .

There's also another variation of eGo VV battery, with 0.1V incremental change options and voltage range 3.0-6.0 which I personally recommend. Read review


electronic pipe

works the same way as electronic cigarette but is shaped to resemble the look of a tobacco pipe. Buy this one at Pandaecigs from California. (direct affiliate link)


e-juice, juice

a solution heated by the atomizer to simulate smoking. It's made up of mostly a propylene glycol (PG) or vegetable glycerin (VG) base, or their combination, nicotine at desired level, and additional flavor/s. Most components in e-liquid are well known and used in many food products. Only pharmaceutical grade (USP) or food grade PG and VG should be used. More on e-liquid if you click the picture.

e-solid – gel substance, packed in a tube like toothpaste, used instead of e-liquid. Not to be confused with so-called nicotine gel (which is a nicotine replacement therapy - NRT)  

Turns liquid when heated. Users who have tried it last year had not so favourable experiences, but they all agree it lasted longer than e-liquid, which is true. The taste, however, leaves much room for improvement. Click to read our review.
