E-cig devices are like any other items you use in your daily life. They get cluttered with dirt from constant use. To obtain better product performance and longest possible life span, regular maintenance is necessary. The maintenance involves two parts majorly, E-cig battery and atomizer/ Cartridge. Proper cleaning and care will bring the devices to their peak performance.
There are many ways to clean an e cig atomizer. We will recommend a few methods that are both easy to do and effective here. Before going to any actual cleaning, you may disassemble the atomizer from your e-cigarette first.
Much like reusable cartridges, dirt and residue can accumulate where the battery meets the cartridge, so cleaning it with a damp cotton swab every week or so can improve the connection between the e-cigarette’s two parts and increase the device’s performance. If grime has hardened and doesn’t come off easily, try using something pointy like tweezers or a toothpick to scrape it out of the crevasses first. Regular cleaning on the connection part will not only give you better vapor experience, but also expanded usage of your e-cig devices.
In addition, how you charge and will affect its life time too. It is better to avoid over charging. When the light turns green, it’s fully charged and ready for use. Overcharging typically won’t cause any serious issues with e-cig batteries – or any lithium-based battery for that matter – but it’s still a good idea to disconnect the battery once it reaches a full charge so you can get the fullest out of your e-cig devices.
If you would like to simply avoid the device maintenance, disposable E-cig will be the choice for you.
However, most of the E cig batteries are reusable nowadays. It is also more cost effective in the long run.

Then the second part is atomizer system, which contains an atomizer and tank for restoring e-liquid. The third part is the microchip which controls the energy transfer.

There is only one coil in contact with the e-liquid in single coil E-cigarette set up, thus there is less E-liquid consumption. Single coil E-cig runs at a lower power level, thus the battery can be used longer before each recharge.
Two coils working together in dual coil E-cigarette makes it produce more vapor in same time, so as to the vapor density and flavor intensity. Also as dual coils E-cigarette usually works with a higher level of power, it brings more throat hit or lung inhale.

Each cigarette can smoke for about 20 puffs (2-3 seconds each), that is 3600 puffs total.
