Adapter

An adapter is a device that allows a specific type of hardware to work with another device that would otherwise be incompatible. Our FairSmoke adapter makes it possible for you to charge your FairSmoke battery in an electrical socket, by using the USB charger with the adapter.

 

Atomiser

The atomizer is a small part in an electronic cigarette used for heating the e-liquid in order to produce vapor. An atomizer head, also known as a coil head or a wick, will often be referred to by users as a burner. These are all words for the same thing, the heating element inside an e-cigarette device.
 

Battery

The battery is essential for using the FairSmoke device and the refills, as the battery powers the components producing the vapor. Without the battery you cannot use the FairSmoke e-cigarette. The FairSmoke battery takes approximately 2 hours to fully charge and will last for approximately 1 day by normal use.
 

Cigalike

Cigalike is a term used to describe a special kind of e-cigarettes. The cigalike models are often designed to look like a traditional cigarette and is typically a closed system product, where you use refills for vape and taste rather than re-filling the e-cigarette device with e-liquid yourself. Just like FairSmoke. Cigalike is also often referred to as cig-a-like or cig-alike.
 

Charger

The USB Charger is essential for your FairSmoke experience as you will need it to recharge your FairSmoke battery, when this runs out of power. The battery is fully charged within 2 hours by using the original FairSmoke Charger, which allows for you to bring it with you and instantly charge your battery when needed by plugging the USB device into a computer or by using the adapter.
You can charge your FairSmoke device over and over again and fully charged the battery lasts for approximately 1 day, dependent on form of use.
 

Closed system

E-cigarettes are typically divided into two groups, open system products and closed system products. What charactarizes the open system products is that the device contains a cartomizer/tank, in which you will have to refill e-liquid when the device is empty.
On an empty closed system product on the other hand, you just need to attach a new refill and you are good to go.
We have designed our FairSmoke products as a closed system device to make it easier and more convenient for our customers to use the product on the go or in busy everyday situations. 
 

Coil

See Atomiser. An atomizer head is also known as a coil head, or a wick, and users will often call them a burner. These are all words for the same thing, the heating element inside an e-cigarette device.
 

E-cigarette

An electronic cigarette, often referred to as an e-cigarette, is a handheld electronic device that provides you with a feeling similar to that of smoking tobacco. It works by heating a liquid to generate vapour, that the user inhales. (It comes in different flavours). E-cigarettes are typically made for smokers who want to quit smoking.
 

E-Liquids

Also known as liquids. In order to deliver a similar experience to smoking cigarettes, e-cigarettes make use of e-liquid, to provide the taste, nicotine, and visual appearance of smoking to the smoker without the 5000+ chemicals found in cigarettes.
Your FairSmoke e-cigarette comes with refills (filters) that already contain e-liquid (the system used is called a cartomiser). With cartomisers, which is a closed system, you cannot refill the refillers with e-liquid yourself, but instead you can easily change to a new refill.
 

FairSmoke Box

The FairSmoke Box is a convenient box of almost the same size as a regular cigarette pack, with room for two refills and your USB charger in addition to your FairSmoke battery. The FairSmoke box comes with a FairSmoke battery and a USB charger.
 

FairSmoke ONE

The FairSmoke ONE is perfect to take with you in your handbag or in your pocket and it is smaller than the FairSmoke Box. With this stylish single case you can bring your FairSmoke battery and one refill with you everywhere. It comes in 9 different colours, choose the ONE that fits you best!

LED

Nicotine

Nicotine is a potent parasympathomimetic stimulant and an alkaloid found in the nightshade family of plants. Nicotine is proven to be addictive, however nicotine is not proven to be deadly or to be causing cancer. In FairSmoke Refill Packs you will find nicotine in the Red and Blue packages, but not in the Silver packages.
                     

Refills

Refills, also called refillers or filters, are essential for smoking e-cigarettes using the cartomiser systems. On a closed system product like FairSmoke, you can attach the refill by screwing it onto the battery.
Besides the normal tobacco flavour, FairSmoke offers 4 other flavours. These flavours are menthol, apple, liquorice and cherry. All flavours are available in red (19 mg.), blue (11 mg.) and silver (0 mg.).
