AEMSA – American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association
Analog – What electronic cigarette users (vapers) call a traditional (or real) tobacco cigarette.
Atomizer (Atty) – The atomizer is contained in a metal housing that screws into the battery. When the mouthpiece is removed, it looks like a silver loop of metal. The atomizer is what turns the liquid into a vapor. Atomizers are used on a multitude of products from perfume bottles, inhalers for medications, cooking sprays, squirt bottles, etc.
Atomizer Tank – The atomizer tank is your standard style tank with a dual-coil pre-dotted/slotted atomizer. Other or more out of the ordinary and much more xpensive atomizer tanks are those that are rebuildable or serve more than just one purpose.
Advanced Personal Vaporizer (APV) – The more advanced version of a personal vaporizer. The APV usually consists of a bigger battery and tech features such as variable voltage or variable wattage.
Adapter – Used to allow a specific style of atomizer or cartomizer to fit onto a different style of battery. Many users prefer the vapor production of one style of atty but prefer the battery life of another style battery. This allows them to have access to both simultaneously.
Automatic (Auto) – A battery that is activated by taking a draw, like an analog cigarette. These types of batteries are unsealed as they allow air to flow through them. Often damaged by liquid leaking into the battery. These types of batteries are not recommended for dripping. Automatic electronic cigarette batteries can be activated by sound or a breeze.
All Day Vape – Your All Day Vape is the e-liquid you most rely on or favor. That e-liquid that hits the spot and that you can constantly vape because it never gets old.
