  • Patent number: 11019685
    Abstract: Provided herein are systems and methods to generate an inhalable vapor in an electronic vaporization device. The vaporization device may generate a vapor with one or more defined characteristics. In some cases, the vapor may have a predetermined aerosol number density and/or a predetermined average aerosol diameter. The vaporization device may generate a vapor from a vaporizable material. In some cases, the vaporizable material may be a liquid material housed in a cartridge. The vaporization device may comprise a rechargeable power storage device.

  • Patent number: 10993471
    Abstract: Vaporizer cartridges are provided. In some implementations, a cartridge includes a body having a base region sized to be inserted into a receptacle on a device, a mouthpiece at a proximal end of the body, a reservoir configured to hold a vaporizable material, a wick positioned to contact the vaporizable material, a resistive heating element having a pair of heating element ends, and a pair of plates away from the distal end. The plates are in contact with the pair of heating element ends, have a contact end exposed on an outer surface of a distal end of the body, and are configured to complete a circuit with the device when the base region is inserted into the receptacle, the exposed contact ends disposed in a first plane on the distal end. Related systems, methods, and articles of manufacture are also described.

  • Patent number: 10986867
    Abstract: Vaporizer cartridges are provided. In some implementations, a cartridge includes a storage compartment having a longitudinal and two transverse dimensions, a mouthpiece at a proximal end of the storage compartment, exposed contact surfaces proximate to and accessible from a distal end of the storage compartment, and a heater proximate to the distal end. The heater includes extended plate contacts, a wick disposed between the plate contacts, and a heating element in contact with the plate contacts and the wick. Two opposed ends of the wick are disposed within the storage compartment and configured to contact the vaporizable material. The plate contact are electrically connected to the contact surfaces. Related systems, methods, and articles of manufacture are also described.

  • Publication number: 20210112880
    Abstract: A vaporizer device may include various modular components. The vaporizer device may include a first subassembly. The first subassembly may include a cartridge connector that secures a vaporizer cartridge to the vaporizer device and includes at least two receptacle contacts that electrically communicate with the vaporizer cartridge. The vaporizer device may include a second subassembly. The second subassembly may include a skeleton defining a rigid tray that retains at least a power source. The vaporizer device may also include a third subassembly. The third subassembly may include a plurality of charging contacts that supply power to the power source, and an end cap that encloses an end of the vaporizer device.

  • Patent number: 10912331
    Abstract: Vaporization devices and methods of operating them are described. In particular, apparatuses with a resistive heating element, electrical circuitry for measuring a voltage between the resistive heating element and a reference resistor, and a microcontroller for controlling a temperature of the resistive heating element in response to a determined resistance are described. The electrical circuitry may comprise the reference resistor, a first switch operable to interrupt the flow of current from the power source through the resistive heating element, a second switch operable to add the reference resistor in series with the resistive heating element when the flow of current from the power source through the resistive heating element is interrupted by operation of the first switch, and a voltage divider configured to measure a voltage between the resistive heating element and the reference resistor.

  • Patent number: 10905167
    Abstract: On-demand, hand-held vaporizer that operates primarily by convection. The vaporizer is configured to permit very rapid (e.g., within a few seconds) heating of air drawn through an oven chamber to a predetermined or selectable vaporizing temperature to vaporize a material (e.g., loose leaf plant material, etc.) that is held in the oven chamber. The vaporizer provides efficient transfer of air being heated as well as rapid delivery of vaporizable material to a user.

  • Publication number: 20210011446
    Abstract: Vaporizers and vaporizer systems, which can include a user device in communication with a vaporizer, can include one or more features related to control of functions and/or features of the vaporizer. A method for locking a vaporizer is provided. The method includes determining whether a vaporizer is within a communication range of a second device. The method further includes locking the vaporizer in response to the vaporizer being within the communication range. The method further includes receiving information associated with a user of the vaporizer. The method further includes determining, based on the received information, an age of the user and unlocking, by the one or more processors and based on the age of the user satisfying a threshold, the vaporizer to activate the operation of the vaporizer.
