How does the Red Dragon electronic cigarette work?
Red Dragon brand electric cigarettes contain a microchip and sensor that activates an atomizing circuit whenever you inhale. The atomizing circuit vaporizes the liquid nicotine and flavor solution found within the replaceable cartridge, which then produces a smoke-like mist. Our electronic cigarette is always in stand-by mode and is activated only when you puff. This automated feature preserves battery life and eliminates having to fumble for an on-off switch.

How is it Built?
Red Dragon’s innovative new device consists of:
  • All stainless steel construction
  • A high quality re-chargeable lithium ion battery
  • A micro-electronic circuit that controls vaporization.
  • Replaceable cartridges in your choice of  flavor and nicotine strength
  • All Red Dragon replacement cartridges contains a new, built-in atomizer
  • A "glowing ember" at the tip which lights up when you puff
  • Accessories that allow you to customize your red dragon

What if others don’t understand about Electronic Cigarettes?
Red Dragon recommends that you always be considerate of others in public places. Most people don’t know what an electronic cigarette is and may think it’s a tobacco cigarette. Be ready to respond to questions from curious folks. If they ask: "What are you smoking?" you can explain: "It’s not smoke, it's simply water vapor like from an inhaler. I prefer to avoid smoke."

Using E-Liquid to Refill Red Dragon Cartridges:

You can save a significant amount of money by using our E-Liquid to refill your cartridges!
1.) Carefully remove the White rubber cap from the end of the cartridge. Take care not to damage the atomizer wire located beneath the cap.

2.) Fill a graduated syringe, with about 0.8ml of E-Liquid.
3.) Insert the needle of the syringe about 3/4 into the cartridge between the White absorbent material and the wall of the cartridge.
4.) Aim the injection of the E-Liquid toward the absorbent material taking care not to inject liquid into the center hole of the cartridge. Be careful not to damage the atomizer wire.

5.) Load the absorbent material with E-liquid evenly by drawing the needle outward slowly while injecting. Inject the E-Liquid into 3 separate locations to fully load the cartridge.
6.) When the cartridge has rested for about five minutes, replace the rubber stopper and then hold it over a paper towel while blowing into the stoppered end briskly to evacuate any excess liquid out the threaded end. After removing the excess liquid, wipe the threaded end clean with a lint-free wipe.
7.) Clean the syringe by flushing it with water.

TIP #1: An overfilled cartridge will produce less vapor and may leak juice. If you blow into the end of the cartridge and hear a slight gurgling sound, that means your cartridge is overfilled. If that happens, simply blow briskly into the end of the cartridge to evacuate the excess liquid. Be sure to clean the threaded end of excess liquid prior to attaching to your E-cigarette battery.

TIP #2: It may be time to refill or replace your Cartridge if you experience a burnt smell or reduced vapor. A typical cartridge can be refilled about 5 or 6 times before it should be replaced.

TIP #3: The paper cartridge label may become unsanitary following frequent use. If that happens you can simply remove the label to reveal a cleanable stainless steel surface. Here is how to take off the label:
Screw the cartridge onto your battery and heat it by rotating the cartridge in the warm air stream of a hair dryer. Warm it enough to peel back the label’s edge. Don’t overheat it or you may damage the battery or cartridge. When the cartridge is warm, the label will come off easily. The remaining label residue can be removed with isopropyl alcohol.

How long does the battery charge last?
Our battery can be recharged in 2 to 3 hours.  Just screw the battery into a USB charger adapter and charge the battery in your computers USB port or with a wall charger. How long the charge lasts depends on you frequency of use, length of puffs, and time between puffs. Because each user is different, each user will experience different results. If you puff intermittently and less frequently, you will get more puffs per charge than you would if you puff rapidly and continuously.
A battery charge will usually lasts anywhere between 2 and 4 hours of use. If you are worried about your battery’s performance, you can test its effectiveness by comparing it to another battery. If your battery fails to retain a normal charge, we will replace it under the terms of our warranty. Just contact us and we will provide an RMA number and instructions on how to get a free replacement.
Atomizing liquid into a vapor takes a lot of energy. Higher capacity batteries are too heavy and bulky for use in an electric cigarette. Due to limited battery capacity, we advise our customers to keep an extra battery on hand in case they run out of power.
