  • Patent number: 9974340
    Abstract: An electronic cigarette having a function for detecting the operating voltage and current of an atomiser. A microcontroller (102) detects the operating voltage or/and the operating current of an atomiser, and when the operating voltage or/and the operating current exceeds a threshold value, a switch circuit (103) is disconnected, so that a battery rod ceases to supply power to the atomiser, and a power supply circuit (101) of the battery rod and the atomiser is disconnected, thereby having the effect of protecting the atomiser. In addition, power supply voltage and current mismatching between the atomiser and the battery rod is prevented, said mismatching causing operational irregularities such as the amount of vapor atomised by the atomiser being unstable, and burning. The switch circuit (103) has a simple and clever structure, costs are low, and reliability is high.
