Cartomizer (Carto) – A combination of disposable atomizer and cartridge. It is not considered to be refillable, although many users do manage to do so.

Cartomizer Single Coil – A single coil cartomizer uses only 1 coil. Using 1 coil is the standard to cartomizers.

Cartomizer Dual Coil – A dual coil cartomizer uses 2 coils and is commonly used in tanks. When working as said, a dual coil cartomizer has the ability to produce twice as much vapor or the same amount twice as fast from the standard.

Cartomizer Tank – The cartomizer tank is a tube to hold e-liquid. The cartomizer sits in the middle of the tube and will have a hole punched in the bottom so that the e-liquid can feed itself into the cartomizer.

Clearomizer – A clearomizer is the transparent version of a cartomizer, designed to allow users to see how vaping actually works and how much e-liquid they have left. In reality, things are a little more complicated. Many in the electronic cigarette business choose to define clearomizers simply as transparent cartomizers, even though they’re not always built the same way. The clearomizer is ually made of thin, very easily breakable plastic, in order to remain transparent. Also most clearomizers don’t have polyfill filling, as it would make it hard for vapers to estimate how much e-juice they have left. Instead they have a wick.

Cartridge (Cart) – The cartridge is typically a mouth piece made a plastic and houses a filler material to hold e-liquid. To use a cartridge, you would fill the inside of the cartridge and on the filler material with your e-liquid, then place the cartridge on your atomizer or cartomizer.

Charger – A battery charger. This is used to recharge your e-cig battery once it has been depleted.

Cut-Off – Cut-off or automatic shutdown is a feature which happens if you try to take too long drags from an e-cigarette. This usually happens after a 5-8 second drag. This will prevent the atomizer from overheating. Flashing LED usually indicates about this feature. Not all models have this feature.

Coil – A coil is a kanthal or nichrome wire that heats up the e-liquid to produce the vapor.
