Abstract

A device for feeding liquids by inhaling, comprising an atomizer, a power source and a power control system according to the invention is characteristic in that it is equipped with a capacitive power switch (6) of the atomizer.

Description

  • The present invention relates to a device for feeding liquids by inhaling in particular an electronic cigarette.
  • There are known devices for feeding liquids by inhaling in particular the so-called electronic cigarettes, where nicotine compounds are added to liquids. In said devices the liquid is fed in a gaseous form by heating up the liquid in an atomizer. Heating up the liquid is achieved by mechanically switching on a switch placed on the cigarette shell, which turns on the power of the atomizer.
  • Patent EP2672848 describes the method of variable power control of the electronic cigarette which provides various modes of operation, including both regulated and non-regulated electronic mode. The method is implemented in the form of an electronic power control program that controls the constituent parts of the electronic cigarette, including the battery, atomizer and the heating element.
  • Patent EP2698070 describes an electronic cigarette structure. The electronic cigarette includes a round cigarette tube, a control module, batteries, an atomizer, a fiberglass tube and a sealing ring installed within said cigarette tube from front to back. A diametrical hole penetrates the fiberglass tube, that hole being internally equipped with a fiberglass rope around which heating wire is wrapped, the heating wire being connected to the atomizer base.
  • Patent WO2013181789 describes an electronic cigarette circuit, comprising: an IC, a gas flow sensor connected to the IC, a heating wire, and a VDD power supply connected to the IC and the heating wire. The electronic cigarette circuit also comprises a switch device, which is connected to the heating wire and the VDD power supply in series to constitute a loop. By adopting the switch device which is arranged outside the IC as well as the technical means that the switch device is connected to the heating wire and the power supply in series to constitute a loop, the electronic cigarette circuit achieves the technical effects of high power output to the heating wire and large quantities of smoke.
  • Patent EP2668858 relates to an electronic cigarette and a wireless charging device for the same, wherein: the electronic cigarette comprises a receiving coil electrically connected with the battery, in which the receiving coil is provided in the body of the electronic cigarette and the axis of the coil is parallel to the electronic cigarette. The charging device comprises an electronic switch and a transmitting coil connected with a power source in sequence. The electronic switch is controlled by a transmitting control unit, and the transmitting coil is used to insert the electronic cigarette in. The housing of the charging device is provided with an inserting hole and a sleeve, which is placed correspondingly with the transmitting coil of the electronic cigarette and a wireless charging device in a non-contact manner by using an insert.
  • An important technical problem remaining to be solved is the switching on the power of the atomizer. Using a switch which turns on the power once its position has been changed often means powering the atomizer when it is not needed which results in short battery life.
  • Using a switch-on device requiring constant pressure to be applied in order to supply voltage to the electrode in the atomizer eliminates the risk of powering while the atomizer is not working. At the same time using said type of switch is inconvenient for the electronic cigarette user as in order to switch it on the user needs to keep the switch impressed.
  • The device for feeding liquids by inhaling comprising an atomizer, power source and power control system according to the invention is characteristic in that it comprises a capacitive atomizer power switch.
  • Favourably, the power source is a battery.
  • Favourably, the power switch only starts the electricity flow at the moment of shorting the switch.
  • Favourably, the device has a tubular shape.
  • Using a capacitive switch across which voltage is generated as a result of current conduction through the skin on the user's finger significantly improves the comfort of using the device as it does not require constant pressure to be applied to the switch as in so far described and used devices. Moreover, eliminating mechanical parts in the switch significantly prolongs its failure-free operating time.
  • The present invention relates to the device shown in Fig. 1 presenting one embodiment of the device according to the invention based on the example of an electronic cigarette.
  • In the shell (1) of the electronic cigarette a battery (2) is placed and between the battery (2) and the electrode (3) there is a switch casing (4), a capacitive switch (6) and a power control system (5).
  • As the user of the device touches the capacitive switch the power control system turns on the power of the atomizer's electrode from the battery. The moment the finger is lifted from the switch by the user the power of the circuit is switched off.
  • The embodiment presented above does not exhaust all the possibilities of using the invention.
