Does The Electric Cigarette Produce Vapor When The Cartridge Is Depleted?

The 3 main parts that make the electric cigarette work are the battery, liquid nicotine filled cartridge and a built in atomizer. One of the questions many smokers have is that when the liquid nicotine has been depleted, will the electric cigarette still produce vapor?

i do not wanna buy new nicotine cartridges or spend money on cartridges that state 0mg nicotine if i can smoke my current e-cigarette with my old cartridge. It’s the sensation of smoking ie : holding blowing smoke the social thing when drinking at the pub. i quit but i don’t wanna start again.

In order to produce the vapor, there has to be liquid nicotine. The atomizer vaporizes the liquid nicotine and turns the liquid nicotine into vapor. If there is no liquid nicotine, there will be no vapor. Plus, the flavor that the smoker will receive is more of a burn and harsh taste because the only thing that the atomizer is vaporizing is the inside plastic of the cartridge. Although smokers may get a small amount of vapor, it is not recommended to puff on the electric cigarette if the cartridge is depleted because you will not get the same flavorful experience.

    nicotine has a low evaporation temperature, so it has to be mixed with something so as not to evaporate. e-juice is nicotine+propylene glycol+flavoring. if you do not want any more nic , get some 0% e juice, it has the flavor and the vapor, but no nic. a dry cartridge will contain almost no nic, but if in doubt, you can always remove the wool, wash in warm, water, dry , and refill the cartridge

    You can check out some forums on e-cigs. There are other options for you. You can refill your current carts with glycerin that you can buy at the store and flavor it with Lorann candy flavoring or buy 0 nic flavored e-liquid cheaply.

    Polystyrene Man has the best answer so far. You won’t get so much as a whisp of smoke without some sort of e-liquid. If you are only smoking socially at a pub, a $15 30ml bottle of no-nicotine e-juice will last you for months. If you can afford the drinks, surely you can afford that!

    You can make your own cartridges easily enough. Save the tip of an old one and buy some fluval at your local pet store. Fluval is the mesh-like filler that is in an ecig cartridge. It is also used in fish tanks as filters. A box will cost a couple of dollars and last you a year!

    After the nicotine runs out there will be nothing left in the cartridge so, no, there will be no more vapor. If you’re not wanting to buy more cartridges, you don’t have to. What I do is use an empty cartridge and put a few drops of eliquid on the atomizer. It works great and when you stop getting vapor just put a couple more drops in it. Alternatively you can put drops in the cotton swab like stuff in a used cartridge and that works too, yet not nearly as well as dripping directly on the atomizer.

    You can buy good quality electric cigarettes here:

    At that site you can choose the flavor, quantity and nicotine level of the cartridges.
