What Temperature Does The Electric Cigarette Need To Vaporize Liquid Nicotine

One of the questions many people have about the electric cigarette is how does it produce the vapor and is there burning or some kind of heat involved. At first, smokers think that the electronic cigarette burns tobacco but that is totally wrong. Instead of burning tobacco, the electric cigarette uses liquid nicotine. Here is how the electronic cigarette works and how much heat it takes to vaporize the liquid nicotine and turn it into water vapor.

how hot does it heat the atomizer in the electronic cigarette in order to produce the steam like vapor? Is this something to be worried about if the atomizer gets too hot?

The electric cigarette uses three main parts and they are the battery, a liquid nicotine filled cartridge, and an atomizer that is located inside of the cartridge. When the smoker puffs on the electric cigarette, the battery heats up the atomizer to 188 degrees. The atomizer then vaporizes the liquid nicotine and turns it into water vapor for which the smoker inhales.

If the atomizer gets above 188 degrees, it will automatically shut itself off to prevent any damage to the atomizer and the smoker as well. The advantages to these electronic cigarettes is that since there is no burning of tobacco, there is no tobacco odor, no second hand smoke, and smokers are able to avoid the public smoking bans and smoke anywhere they like.

    HI toomboom87,

    not sure how hot it gets exactly but I’d say if you take a few quick puffs it heats up to 100 or more. Not hot enough to burn you for sure!
    Why are you asking?

    In order for propylene glycol to vaporize the filament in the atomizer must reach 188 degrees. The best electronic cigarette that produces the most vapor is the Solar Cigarette which is available in automatic or manual batteries. Also available is the PRO Portable Charger that allows you to charge your e-cig in your pocket.
