Electronic Cigarette Technology
In order to completely understand the many reasons to choose White Cloud electronic cigarettes, it's important that you first gain a comprehensive understanding of e cig technology and how White Cloud's approach far surpasses the industry standard.
Of the thousands of electronic cigarettes on the market today, the majority use a lithium polymer, or LiPo, battery. Though all LiPo batteries utilize the same design and are constructed similarly, it is important to remember that not all batteries are created equally. Just as with any other type of battery you use to power various devices, the lifetime and function of a battery depends upon the quality of its components. If you have ever compared two or three batteries of varying brands, you have likely noted a difference in their performance, particularly if one was substantially less expensive than the others.
This fact applies to the chemistry and construction of the batteries used in e cigarettes as well. The batteries that power White Cloud cigarettes are comprised of the highest quality materials used in the e cig industry. They last longer and function more efficiently than any other LiPo battery made. While all lithium polymer batteries are rated at 4.23 volts in a fully charged state and approximately 2.7 volts when fully discharged, our batteries are engineered to precise tolerances, making them highly resistant to the cell damage that may be caused by overcharging. These advanced protection measures allow our LiPo e cig battery cells to safely and fully recharge, while our various charging options allow you to revamp your e cigarette's battery virtually anywhere, quickly and conveniently. Our revolutionary ChargeBolt charger can even safely resuscitate a battery cell that has dropped below the nominal voltage of 2.7, an unprecedented capability not seen from other brands.
Our ChargeBolt e-cigarette charger can even safely resuscitate a battery cell that has dropped below the nominal voltage of 2.7, try doing that with ANY other brand!
Just as the majority of e cig batteries share similar qualities, electronic cigarette cartridges share likenesses as well. Every cartridge from every brand relies upon a heating element and a liquid mixture of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, a predetermined amount of nicotine and flavorings. Despite their similarities regarding components and contents, e cig cartridges do differ in a number of significant ways. A simple example involves the differences between a one piece cartridge and a two piece cartridge.
Two Piece Cartridge
Some electronic cigarettes utilize a design featuring a two piece cartridge, which includes a reusable atomizer and a disposable nicotine pad encased in a plastic cap. The nicotine pad may be either thrown away and replaced after the liquid is exhausted or carefully infused again with nicotine fluid. The latter method is not recommended, as it presents the risk of spillage and leakage during refilling or use.
Pros of Two Piece Design:
- Low cost
Cons of Two Piece Design:
- Very prone to leakage of fluid that may stain clothing, carpet and furniture
- Cartridge is only able to retain enough fluid for approximately 40 puffs
- Atomizer must be cleaned daily and replaced weekly
- Fluid can leak into the battery unit, resulting in a need to replace it
- Brief shelf life
- Should not be removed from atomizer until fully used (forces user to continue vaping one flavor until liquid is depleted
One Piece Cartridge
The one piece cartridge design (used in White Cloud e cigs since 2008) is also known as a cartomizer and is the most popular e-cigarette cartridge type in the world. In this design, the heating element is encased within the cartridge and is surrounded by an absorbent material containing flavored nicotine
Most electronic cigarettes on the market today utilize a primitive, simply manufactured design established by mass production e cigarette mills in China. Although these designs do often work as promised, inconsistency in operation is common. They rarely produce the smooth, pleasurable smoking experience consumers crave. Some of the e cigs produced in this fashion even place the heating element so close to the external casing that the product overheats and can burn your lips, fingertips or both, even with light use.liquid. Its construction eliminates the need to clean or replace the vaporizer.
Pros of One Piece Design:
- Highly resistant to leaking
- Cartridge provides approximately 200-400 full puffs (depending on brand and internal design)
- Atomizer is built in; no need for cleaning or replacing
- Shelf life of up to nine months
- Can be removed from battery at any time, allowing for changes in flavor and convenient storage
Cons of One Piece Design:
- More expensive than two piece cartridges due to advanced technology and quality components
- Quality is dependent upon internal structure (varies among brands)
White Cloud SmoothDraw Cartridge
The SmoothDraw cartridge designed and manufactured by White Cloud features superior technology and construction as compared to other electronic cigarettes on the market, for a number of reasons. Our company is managed differently than any other in the industry, particularly because White Cloud is completely in control of the design, the standards upheld within our factories and the quality of the components used to produce our e-cigarettes. Our commitment to superior products remains evident in every electronic cigarette cartridge we present to you, our valued customer.
Our proprietary SmoothDraw and ClearDraw cartridge design ensures that every puff delivers full-flavored, nicotine-infused vapor seamlessly and easily. Because we place the heating coil directly into the center of the cartridge, the possibility of overheating the unit or burning the user's lips is eliminated completely. In addition, the our vapor stack and silicone bell trap create an unobstructed pathway for vapor delivery, resulting in an irresistibly satisfying draw, all without the necessity for “prime puffing.”
Because we only implement a low temperature, 4 watt heating element, our cartridges are extremely burn resistant. This translates to longer cartridge life, lower battery drain per puff, no burned lips, and no burnt taste.
