What is a Cartomizer?

It is no secret that e-cigarettes have been constantly growing in popularity, and for good reason. They are more affordable than regular cigarettes. With that being said, there can be some terminology in the world of e-cigarettes that can be difficult to understand.

One thing that often confuses people is the mention of a cartomizer, which is a major e-cigarette part.

E-cig Technology

A cartomizer is essentially an improvement on several pieces of e-cigarette technology that were once predominantly used, which would be atomizers and separate cartridges for e-liquid.

These cartridges would have the e-liquid inside them, and the atomizers would heat that liquid into vapor, which would then be inhaled by users. While this seems like it would work, and it did for quite some time (and still does for some), many people had complaints about the setup, as it often caused messy leaks of the liquid and caused for some confusion.

It is because of all this that the cartomizer was invented. Eventually, e-cigarette manufacturers figured out that they could simply combine the atomizer and liquid cartridge into one piece, which resulted in this new way of smoking that has made e-cigarettes much easier to use, and in turn, more attractive to new vapor smokers.

There are certainly still people who choose to use atomizers with separate cartridges, but most people today prefer the convenience of cartomizers. In addition to not leaking, cartomizers are also able to hold more liquid than atomizers, which makes for a better smoking experience.

Furthermore, cartomizers also are able to be refilled and used several times, depending on the type of cartomizers that you enjoy using. This is a great thing if you are looking to save money, as refilling is inexpensive and cartomizers generally only cost a couple of dollars anyway.

Even if you do buy a new cartomizer, every time your existing one runs out and you choose to not refill it, you will still be saving a substantial amount of money when compared to smoking regular tobacco cigarettes.

This is just a brief overview of what a cartomizer is and how it is used to make e-cigarettes the best option for smokers today. The field of e-cigarettes is always advancing, and the creation of the cartomizer has been a huge part of the growth of this great smoking alternative.
