The FairSmoke Glossary - e-cigarettes easily explained

Adapter
A section that connects two electrical devices that would not normally be compatible with each other. So you can load your FairSmoke battery in a power outlet, you need our 230 volt adapter. Just plug it into the FairSmoke USB charger and put the battery in for charging.

Atomizer
An atomizer is known as "coil head", "wick" or most commonly "burner". All three terms, however, refer to the same tiny heating element in the battery.

Battery
The battery is indispensable for using a FairSmoke e-cigarette because it supplies power to the steam-producing components. Without the battery, the use of an e-cigarette is therefore not possible. The FairSmoke battery takes about 2 hours to fully charge and will last about 1 day when used normally.

"Cigalike"
"Cigalikes" are e-cigarette models whose design is based on the look of conventional tobacco cigarettes. These are usually so-called "closed system products". These are e-cigarettes, such as FairSmoke, which work with pre-filled refills (including filters) for screwing, instead of self-filling e-liquid tanks.

Closed System
For e-cigarettes, a distinction is usually made between "open system products" and "closed system products". Under the category "open system products", fall the devices that have a built-in tank (Cartomizer). If this is empty, the user must refill it himself manually with e-liquid. On the other hand, "closed system products" are e-cigarettes that work with pre-filled liquid containers, so-called refills. These are simply screwed to the battery and replaced with new ones when they are empty. In developing our FairSmoke products, we the latest system to provide our customers with the most comfortable and easy solution in stressful everyday situation.

E-cigarette
The electronic cigarette, often abbreviated as e-cigarette, is an electronic hand-held device. The user has a similar experience to smoking genuine tobacco cigarettes. The heating of a special liquid produces steam, which is inhaled by the user. This liquid is available in different flavours. E-cigarettes are designed primarily as an alternative for smokers who want to quit smoking.

E-liquid
The liquid that is heated and evaporated within an e-cigarette. It offers users an experience comparable to smoking due to their vaporized state, their taste and nicotine content. Without including the 5000+ chemicals found in tobacco cigarettes. Your FairSmoke e-cigarette works with refills, which are already filled with liquid. This filter system is called "cartomizer" in e-cigarette terms.

Nicotine
Nicotine is a parasympathomimetic, as well as an alkaloid found in tobacco plants and solanaceae. It has been scientifically proven that although nicotine can make you addicted, it does not mean that it is carcinogenic or even deadly. Among the FairSmoke refills, the varieties "Red" and "Blue" each contain nicotine in varying amounts. However, the "Silver" filters are completely free of nicotine.

Refills
Refills (also called refillers or filters) are essential for the use of e-cigarettes with cartomizer system. In a closed system product, such as the FairSmoke e-cigarette, the refills are simply screwed to the battery.

In addition to the classic tobacco taste, FairSmoke offers refills in 4 other flavours: menthol, apple, liquorice and cherry. All varieties are available in the nicotine strengths "Red" (19 mg), "Blue" (11 mg) and "Silver" (0 mg).

The ingredients of our refills are as follows: nicotine (except in "Silver"), water, tobacco flavor, glycerin, propanediol, polyethylene glycol and triacetin.
