Vaping might look fun and easy, but learning its terminology may get you a little confused and flustered. At Sutra Vape, we want to welcome all beginner vapers to the community by providing you with commonly used vocabulary words by fellow professionals. To begin, familiarize yourself with your own vaporizing device—try to take your vape apart to recognize every provided material of its build. Once you have gained recognition of your device, begin to understand what they bring to your sessions. Here are some key terms that will help you comprehend.


One of the main parts of a vaporizer. An atomizer converts the e-Liquid to vapor, creating large condensed puffs. The atomizer is the most important part of a vape—it produces and delivers the mixture of cloud vapor and flavors you consume.


An additional part of a vaporizer that holds the liquid materials. Vape cartridges are small canisters that include a heating element and a mouthpiece filled with a liquid concentrate. Oil cartridges are prefilled as well as refillable and incorporate a 510 connection for universal threading.


Allows you to warm up your materials at any preferred temperature level regarding the device you own. The greater the voltage, the higher the temperature—meaning bigger and fuller clouds.

For example, the Sutra Squeeze Cartridge Vaporizer features four variable voltage settings (2.8V, 3.2V, 3.7V, 4.2V).


An abbreviation of milliamp hour— it is a component that measures the electric capacity of a battery. The higher the mAh battery, the longer the battery lifespan it features.

For example, the Sutra DBR Pro is powered by a 1500 mAh battery for extended power usage.


There are more vape terms to get used to, but let’s start with frequently used words that will get through the session. From learning a vaporizer’s essential parts to understanding abbreviations, enjoy a vaporizing experience without confusion. Check out our vaporizer collection at!
