BY James Miller @ December 13, 2022


There are many types of Electronic Cigarettes in the market, they include vape pens, vaporizers, e-pens, e-hookahs, e-pipes, and e-cigars, which are all classified as electronic nicotine delivery systems that are the ENDS. One of the most popular e-cigarettes is MOTI, and also there are hundreds of different e-cigarette brands out there currently available to consumers.

Classification 1: Classify by the principle of smoke emission

Heat-not-burn e-cigarettes: The main principle is low-temperature heating, which releases smoke by heating a new type of tobacco, also referred to as HNB. The main feature is that a new type of tobacco similar to a cigarette needs to be inserted into the heating device.

E-liquid atomized electronic cigarette: The e-liquid is atomized by electric heating to generate smoke.

Classification 2: Classify by the type of e-liquid

CBD e-cigarette: Cannabidiol (CBD) is an ingredient in marijuana. CBD has been proven to have no dependence, addiction, or hallucinations. It can improve sleep quality and relax the body and mind. This is classified as CBD-containing e-cigarettes.

Nicotine e-cigarettes: The main components of e-liquid are vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), flavors, and optional nicotine (nicotine). Some nicotine-containing e-cigarettes are nicotine e-cigarettes.

Nicotine-free e-cigarettes: Those that do not contain nicotine in the e-liquid are called nicotine-free e-cigarettes.

Classification 3: Classify by vapor volume(wattage)

Small wattage: the abbreviation of small vapor electronic cigarettes. Like the MOTI pod vape on the market.


Large wattage is the abbreviation of high-volume vapor electronic cigarettes. The playability and coolness of MOTI Play have won many fans.


Classification 4: Classify by reusability

Disposable cigarettes; e-cigarettes that cannot be recharged and reused. Some may feature a rechargeable battery due to its excellent overall performance, It is normally discarded after the e-liquid is finished.

Disposable pod e-cigarette: The pod is separated from the device, and the device has a battery that can be recharged and reused. After the pod is used up, you can change the pod without changing the device.

Refillable e-cigarette: It can be recycled, and the pod has a long service life. After the e-liquid in the pod is sucked, it can be repeated 3-6 times to inject oil and continue to use.

Category 5: Classify by appearance

Simulated cigarette: The size and appearance of the cigarette are the same as the real cigarette, and the bright end of the electronic cigarette lamp has the same effect as the ash shining when smoking.


Non-simulated cigarettes: various shapes that can produce vapor, but the shape is no longer limited to cigarettes.

Classification 6: Classify by ejuice storage and ejuice drainage system

Resistance wire atomized electronic cigarette: absorb ejuice through a cotton coil or fiber rope, and guide the e-liquid in the pod storage chamber to the heating coil, and the vapor will be evaporated when the coil is heated.

Porous ceramic atomized e-cigarette: There is a heating resistor on the porous ceramic, which integrates ejuice guide and heating, and the resistor on the ceramic heats the ejuice to emit smoke. To provide a better taste of vape juice atomization, the porous ceramic atomizing coil has evolved into the third generation of thick film printing, and the thick film printing atomizing coil will be a trend in the future.
