  • Publication number: 20120174914
    Abstract: An electronic vapor inhaling device has an outer housing that defines an internal cavity having a proximal end and a distal end. A mouthpiece is located at the proximal end. A liquid storage chamber is defined within the outer housing near its proximal end and a battery compartment containing a battery is located near the distal end. An atomizer is positioned between the liquid storage chamber and battery chamber and is in communication with an electronic circuit board. The electronic circuit board is configured to receive input from a unique identifier associated with the electrical resistance of the liquid in the liquid storage chamber and automatically adjust the power supplied to the atomizer. The atomizer rapidly heats the liquid that is injected into an air passageway when the user inhales through the mouthpiece, causing the liquid to vaporize and allow inhalation by the user.

  • Patent number: 8091735
    Abstract: An improved concentrated/extract cartridge is provided for dispensing a liquid in an accurate and repeatable manner. The cartridge includes an electromagnetically actuated piston connected to a value. The piston includes an exterior ring supported by a hollow interior web that is configured to permit a flow of fluid into the dispensing tube when the value body is in contact with the value seat. A membrane is located below the web and is in sealing contact with the internal ring when the piston is activated. This allows a precise and repeatable amount of the liquid to be dispensed with each stroke. Dispensers for dispensing the liquid from the cartridge for a number of applications are also provided. The dispensers each include an actuating coil into which the dispensing tube is inserted. A controller is connected to the coil for controlling the actuation of the piston/value assembly for dispensing the fluid in the cartridge as required for the particular application.
