How does E-Cigarettes Works | INCIG

The image above shows the INCIG e cigarette inner workings.


All electronic cigarettes share three essential components:-

  • A “cartridge” that serves as a mouthpiece and usually doubles as a small reservoir holding the liquid that is to be vaporised.
  • An “atomiser” that serves as the heating element responsible for vaporising the liquid.
  • A power supply, which in portable models is the battery and other electronic components necessary for operation are housed within the power unit.

As in the above diagram, the cartridge used is a disposable cartomiser ‘refill’ solution, and we believe this to be the ‘only’ option for the UK market. It replaces the separate cartridge and components with a single integrated piece. Other e cigarette manufacturers have opted to use standalone atomisers which are reusable but very cumbersome when re-filling the juices, and often more juice is lost, than filled.

The INCIG electronic cigarette uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which is powerful and compact. The battery also contain some additional circuitry for lighting the tip that activates the ‘glowing’ sensor, which gives the effect of a real burning cigarette.

The nicotine cartomisers acts as a mouthpiece and a reservoir for the nicotine solution.  The nicotine solution in the cartomisers mainly consists of water and propylene glycol which is a substance used in medicines, cosmetics, food, toothpaste etc.  The only other ingredients include some flavouring and nicotine of course.

The atomiser is activated when the user takes a ‘puff’ on the device.  The atomiser is a 2 part device. First, there is a “wicking” mechanism that is made out of metal.  This wick comes into contact with the liquid nicotine solution in the nicotine cartridge and flows a small amount of nicotine solution down to the second part of the atomiser which is a heating element sometimes just called a filament.

The filament is a small coil of high resistance wire that gets hot and vaporises the nicotine solution flowing to it. This vapour in turn is what gets inhaled into the lungs.

Amazingly after inhalation, you exhale a water vapour that quickly transforms into a puff of smoke, which makes the electronic cigarette the best substitute and the nearest thing to actual smoking !

Because of this INCIG e-cigarette is the preferred, battery-powered alternative to traditional cigarettes.-
