However, e-cigarette users can easily obtain filaments called “coil” with different ohmic values. Subsequently, it is possible for a 3.3-V e-cigarette to obtain the same power of a 5-V e-cigarette. Commonly used filament values are between 0.4 and 2 Ω. Figure 1 compares the possible power of a 3.3- and 5-V e-cigarette, depending on the filament value. When evaporation settings are not optimal (eg, when the heating power is too high), it creates a bad feeling called “dry hit” in users.5 This bad feeling may be related to the formation of formaldehyde. Therefore, further studies should investigate these parameters when studying the composition of the smoke released by e-cigarettes.
