Clearomizers: The Next Step for Electronic Cigarettes
In 1975, IBM invented the world’s very first “portable” computer. (It weighed 55 pounds and had a 5 inch display. Good luck trying to carry that to your local coffee shop.
Thirty five years later in 2010, Apple introduced the iPad, the world’s very first consumer tablet—improving the speed and performance of IBM’s original model, and making it significantly less bulky and putting a smarter, more accessible computer in the consumer’s hand.
And while we still don’t have hovercars, the automobile industry has come a long way since Henry Ford’s day, with many new cars now equipped with GPS and Google’s self-driving vehicles being tested and perfected every day. Technology is continually pushing forward the threshold of what we think is possible and establishing the new normal.
In the already innovative industry of electronic cigarettes, the new normal has emerged which promises to be the future of vapor smoking—a device called the clearomizer.
The very first electronic cigarettes featured cartridges and atomizers, which were soon replaced with a more efficient combination of the two, known as a cartomizer. Now, the clearomizer, or “clearo” as it’s being called, is replacing the cartomizer as the most user-friendly and effective way to vapor smoke.
How a clearo functions is similar to a cartomizer. Much like a Tiki torch, the clearomizer’s wick absorbs the liquid—in this case nicotine—and when the user takes a drag on the electronic cigarette it triggers the battery to release voltage which travels to the wiring twisted around the wick. The voltage heats the nicotine-saturated wick and turns it into vapor, which is inhaled by the user through the mouthpiece.
The main noticeable difference between the new clearomizer versus the cartomizer is the clear outer shell that allows the user to see the amount of nicotine left in their electronic cigarette. Knowing when you are low on e-liquid used to be a guessing game, or require you to disassemble the device to check, which can be a hassle. With the cartomizer, it’s easy to see when you are running low (no disassembly required), and just as easy to refill.
Clearos also improve on the usability of cartomizers by allowing users to replace the atomizer without tossing out the whole thing. With cartomizers, once the heating element burned itself out, user’s would have to replace the whole cartomizer, since it all came as one device—mouthpiece, cartridge, nicotine tank, etc.
Clearos on the other hand separate the heating element from the rest of the device, making it easily replaceable when it burns out, without having to get rid of perfectly functioning parts. This makes cartomizers a cheaper and easier innovation.
As far as the taste goes, vapor smoking with a clearomizer provides a stronger and smoother throat hit than older electronic cigarette technology, and lasts longer than cartomizers and atomizers that use a fiber filling.
And the best part about clearomizers: there’s no learning curve that all-to-often comes with new technologies. Users can vapor smoke with a clearomizer the same way they would with a cartomizer, and refilling the nicotine liquid is a simple three step process:
Sandra Kaeo, the CEO of Modern Vapor, Inc, feels confident in the future of clearomizers as the next big thing to vapor smoking, saying, “Clearomizers are the next logical step in the progression of e-cigarette technology.”
Every day scientists and inventors work to create technologies that challenge what we think is possible. Innovation is a window into the future, but, in a way, it also brings the future to the present. With electronic cigarettes, clearomizers offer users the future of vapor smoking now.
