              How It Works!
 
The MaxxVapor Pro is an alternative to smoked tobacco products, such as cigarettes, cigars, or pipes. It is a battery-powered device that delivers a vaporized propylene glycol/nicotine or non-nicotine solution. In addition, this vapor also provides a flavor and physical sensation similar to that of inhaled tobacco smoke, while no tobacco, smoke, or combustion is actually involved in its operation. The MaxxVapor Personal Vaporizer is designed to resemble the outward appearance of real smoking products, like cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. When a user inhales through the device, air flow is detected by a sensor, which activates a heating element that vaporizes a nicotine/non-nicotine solution stored in the cartridge (mouthpiece). This vapor that is inhaled by the user. An LED on the opposite end of the device is also activated during inhalation, which serves as an indicator of use, and also to simulate the glow of actual burning tobacco.
 
Component Information
 
Cartridge ("Mouthpiece")
The Vapor Cartridge is a small disposable plastic cup affixed to the end of the tube. Inside, it contains an absorbent material that is moistened with a flavored propylene glycol/nicotine/non-nicotine liquid solution. When the liquid in the cartridge has been depleted, it can either be refilled by the user, or replaced with another pre-filled cartridge.
 
Atomizer ("Heating element")
The Atomizer is a heating element used to vaporize the liquid in the Cartridge so that it can be inhaled.
 
Battery
The MaxxVapor Personal Vaporizer uses a lithium-ion rechargeable battery to power the heating element. Battery life varies depending on the model and size, frequency of use, and operating environment. Heavy vapers may experience lower battery life. Many different battery charger types are available, such as wall outlet, car, and USB. The battery utilizes an electronic airflow sensor. Various other electronic circuits are usually employed as well, such as a timed cutoff switch to prevent overheating, and an LED to signal activation of the device. An orange-colored light is often chosen for its visual resemblance to actual burning tobacco. MaxxVapor Flavor Juice  is available in a variety of different flavors and strength levels. Strengths range from high  (to mimic the content of regular cigarettes) to midrange and low (that mimic the content of "light" and "ultralight" cigarettes). Solutions are also available without any nicotine at all. Flavor varieties resemble traditional cigarette such as regular tobacco and menthol but are also available in strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, etc.
