Vape Batteries & Cartridges

Vape batteries and cartridges are the two main components of your vaping device. Batteries power the coil, which heats up e-liquid in these tubes for you to inhale. Cartridges hold either flavouring or nicotine liquid (depending on what kind of device you have), so they’re disposable or refillable depending on whether or not you want to buy more at one time.

Batteries and cartridges are sold separately, but they both come with their own sets of instructions on how much life is left in each one before they need replacing—and sometimes even extra batteries!


The atomizer is the part that heats up your e-liquid. It’s a small heating coil that you hold in your hand and it has an attached tank, which is where you put the e-liquid.

The atomizer heats up quickly when you’re vaping because it gets hot from being in contact with hot coils of wire (which make up the heating element).


The tank is the part of your vaping device that you refill with e-liquid. It’s where the atomizer and battery are located.

The tank usually has an opening for filling, which may be threaded or unscrewed to allow for refilling by removing its top cap (the part that looks like a glass bottle). The top cap can be locked in place so it doesn’t leak during transport or storage; however, some tanks have no locking mechanism at all and simply rest on their bottoms when not in use.

Base or Bottom Hardware

The base or bottom hardware is the part of your vaping device that connects to the battery and holds everything together. It can be made from different materials, such as stainless steel, brass and copper. Base connections vary depending on what type of atomizer you have.

The base also has a 510 connection which allows you to attach an atomizer (atomizer head) onto it via threading it through a hole in order for you to vape on your device!
