Electronic cigarette is an electronic device that sucks vaporized smoke by atomizing nicotine by heating the liquid phase with heat.

Such electronic cigarettes generally include an electronic cigarette body, as in FIG. 1; battery; Wherein the cartridge is a portion storing the liquid of the electronic cigarette, and the atomizer is a portion connected to the cartridge to heat the liquid phase of the cartridge to atomize.

In general, the heat generating portion of the atomizer uses a nichrome wire that is a heat transfer coil to generate heat well, and uses a glass fiber such as a yarn made of glass fiber as a supply for directly supplying a liquid phase to the heat generating portion.

On the other hand, the cartridge stores the liquid phase, the liquid storage method may be stored in a tank method, stored in a member such as cotton or a storage container method for storing ink in the pen.

Conventional electronic cigarettes use a liquid supply device using almost gravity, and thus the liquid supply unit is located above the heating unit. Therefore, it is very inconvenient to use the electronic cigarette in a state in which the use posture is in a state where the liquid supply part is positioned on the heat generating part when the electronic cigarette is used.

On the other hand, in the case of the conventional electronic cigarette, glass fiber is used as a liquid supply medium, such glass fiber is easily broken and its durability is very weak, and also the problem that the broken debris may be absorbed into the human body. In addition, when the glass fiber is in direct contact with the heating wire to vaporize the liquid phase, instantaneous combustion occurs when the liquid phase is in contact with the overheated heating wire. In addition, toxic substances may occur.

In addition, in the case of the conventional atomizer of the electronic cigarette, the liquid incompletely formed by the instantaneous heating is instantaneously atomized by the instantaneous heating by instantaneous heating of the liquid phase supplied from the glass fiber chamber to the heated heating wire. Condensation forms easily on the wall of the device while being sucked into the mouth via a pipe, and this condensation is not reduced to the heating wire, which causes problems such as leakage.

In addition, the glass fiber has a big problem that it is recently classified as a human carcinogenic substance '2B grade' by WHO's International Cancer Research Institute (IARC).

The present invention solves the problem of using glass fiber as the liquid supply medium for atomizers used in the electronic cigarette of the prior art, and smooth liquid supply is achieved without dependence on gravity, and the internal temperature is fixed by the crucible.

Various embodiments are now described with reference to the drawings, wherein like reference numerals are used throughout the drawings to refer to like elements. For purposes of explanation, various descriptions are set forth herein to provide an understanding of the present invention. It is evident, however, that such embodiments may be practiced without these specific details. In other instances, well-known structures and devices are shown in block diagram form in order to facilitate describing the embodiments.

The following description provides a simplified description of one or more embodiments in order to provide a basic understanding of embodiments of the invention. This section is not intended to be a comprehensive overview of all possible embodiments, nor is it intended to identify key elements of all elements or to cover the scope of all embodiments. Its sole purpose is to present the concept of one or more embodiments in a simplified form as a prelude to the more detailed description that is presented later.

1 is a view showing a state of a general electronic cigarette. In general, a typical structure of an electronic cigarette has a structure including an atomizer, a cartridge storing a liquid phase, a filter, and a battery. The atomizer is a part which is connected to the cartridge and heats it to atomize the liquid phase of the cartridge. Generally, the heating part of the atomizer uses a nichrome wire, which is a heat transfer coil, to generate heat well, and supplies the liquid part directly to the heating part. As a sieve, a glass fiber such as a yarn made of glass fiber is used.

The present invention, unlike the general electronic cigarette, the glass tube having a passageway that is not glass fiber; An electronic cigarette structure using a spiral structure and a crucible is disclosed.

2 and 3 are cross-sectional views of the electronic cigarette structure according to an embodiment of the present invention. As shown in Figures 2 and 3 the structure of the electronic cigarette according to an embodiment of the present invention is a liquid storage unit 200; Mesh tube 800; Atomizer structures, including helical structure 900 and crucible 700; A suction unit 400 for sucking atomized steam; A main body 600 including a switch; And a battery 500.

The atomizer structure of one embodiment of the present invention may include a mesh tube 800.

The mesh tube 800 is a web of flexible material dried in a roll shape, and a portion of the mesh tube 800 is inserted into the liquid storage part along the length direction while dried in a roll shape. The mesh tube is a tube-shaped tube, which facilitates the liquid supply through the passage and facilitates the inflow of air into the liquid cylinder.

The spiral structure 900 is inserted in the through passage not inserted into the liquid storage part of the through pipe of the mesh tube 800, and the spiral structure functions to facilitate the supply of the main liquid and at the same time, the function of the heating wire. Do this. This is explained in more detail below.

On the other hand, the liquid storage unit of the electronic cigarette according to an embodiment of the present invention further includes a liquid filling network (300).

The liquid filling network 300 forms a network structure as shown in FIG. 6 and is made of a flexible material. The flexible liquid filling network 300 may be rolled into a roll shape, and is installed in the liquid storage part of the electronic cigarette while being dried. In this case, the liquid filling network 300 is installed to surround the mesh tube 800 inserted into the liquid filling unit, whereby the liquid filling network retains the liquid phase of the liquid storage unit, and thus the liquid is smoother to the mesh tube 800. Will be supplied. This in particular helps to smoothly supply the liquid phase when the electronic cigarette is used as shown in FIG. 2, that is, when the electronic cigarette is used while the liquid phase is located in a direction against gravity.

In this case, for the liquid supply of the electronic cigarette, it further includes a spiral structure 900 inserted into the inner passage of the mesh tube (800). The helical structure enables the liquid phase to move rapidly along the spiral direction by the surface tension of the liquid phase, whereby the liquid phase can be smoothly supplied when using the electronic cigarette even when the liquid phase is located in a direction counter to gravity.

2 and 3, the spiral structure 900 not only facilitates the supply of liquid phase but also functions as a heat generating unit. Therefore, the helical structure 900 is made of a conductive material, preferably a material such as nichrome wire, so that the heating wire to atomize the liquid phase when the power is supplied. As a result, it is possible to solve the problems such as deterioration of the stability, durability, and taste of the device, which is the limit of the glass fiber, by breaking away from the conventional method in which the nichrome wire is spirally wound on the glass fiber which is a conventional liquid supply body.

As shown in Figures 2 and 3, the electronic cigarette atomizer structure according to an embodiment of the present invention is a cylindrical portion surrounding the heat generating portion that is a portion of the mesh tube (in which the spiral structure is inserted therein) that is not inserted into the liquid storage portion A crucible 700 is included. The material of such a crucible is preferably an absorbent low-hardening ceramic material, but is not limited to these materials.

Ceramic crucible absorbs high temperature quickly and keeps its heat dissipation uniform, and by this property, it rapidly absorbs and lowers the heat of high-temperature heating wire which generates heat instantly to prevent liquid combustion and reversely excessively. For the liquid phase to be supplied, the contained liquid is evenly discharged to homogeneously bathe the liquid phase. In addition, according to the degree of curing of the ceramic, the low-hardening ceramic can absorb the liquid phase to atomize the liquid phase in the ceramic, so that the bath effect can reach the highest.

Meanwhile, the crucible may be provided with an air hole 720 through which air enters and an outlet hole 730 through which steam can exit. Steam may be discharged through the discharge hole, and the discharge hole 730 may help to quickly discharge the atomized vapor when the liquid absorbed by the heating wire is atomized, thereby increasing the atomization efficiency.

On the other hand, further embodiments of the present invention are shown in FIGS. 4 and 5. In the case of the embodiment of Figures 4 and 5, unlike the embodiment of Figures 2 and 3, the helical structure does not function as a heating wire, but performs only the main liquid supply function, so that the spiral structure 900 is inserted into the liquid reservoir. have. On the other hand, a separate heating wire 740 is required, this heating wire 740 is wound to wrap around the mesh tube 800 is not inserted into the liquid storage as shown.

In this case, since the spiral structure 900 does not function as a heat generating portion, it does not need to be made of a metal material.

In addition, the apparatus further includes a crucible 700 (bath crucible) that surrounds a portion of the mesh tube and the heat generating portion.

The crucible is made of a ceramic material, and a low density absorbent ceramic is preferable. The crucible is hollow and is installed to surround the mesh tube including the heat transfer part (see FIG. 4). When the heat is generated, the crucible keeps the internal temperature of the heat generating part constant and insulates the liquid to prevent boiling boiling. .

The ceramic crucible 700 quickly absorbs and retains high temperature and has a uniform heat dissipation. The ceramic crucible 700 quickly absorbs and lowers the heat of a high-temperature heating wire that generates heat instantaneously, thereby preventing liquid combustion and inversely. For the liquid phase supplied excessively, the contained liquid is released evenly to homogeneously bathe the liquid phase. In addition, according to the degree of curing of the ceramic, the low-hardening ceramic can absorb the liquid phase to atomize the liquid phase in the ceramic, so that the bath effect can reach the highest.

Meanwhile, the crucible 700 includes an air inlet 720 and a steam outlet 730. The air inlet 720 is an air inlet to be discharged to discharge the atomized vapor in the crucible, and the vapor outlet 730 is a hole to discharge the atomized vapor in the crucible.

In addition, the embodiment of Figure 4 further includes a liquid-phase induction network (1000). The liquid flow guide network is installed to smoothly induce the movement of the liquid flow in the cylinder is not free due to the surface tension of the liquid when the inside diameter of the liquid cylinder is below a certain diameter.

The main body includes an electronic cigarette switch. In this case, a printed circuit board (PCB), which is an electronic circuit, is mounted together with a switch. Until now, all batteries' PCBs were made of the battery itself and one body. In this case, when there was a problem of battery defects, most of the PCB was bad, and therefore, because of the defects of the PCB, a battery without a problem had to be replaced together. However, in order to solve this problem, the present invention has been designed by separately separating the PCB including the switch in the battery fastener, whereby only replace the battery fastener when the battery is bad.

The description of the disclosed embodiments is provided to enable any person skilled in the art to make or use the present invention. Various modifications to these embodiments will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art, and the generic principles defined herein may be applied to other embodiments without departing from the scope of the invention. Thus, the present invention is not intended to be limited to the embodiments shown herein but is to be accorded the widest scope consistent with the principles and novel features presented herein.
