Blu Cigs batteries work by powering the atomizer, contained within the flavor cartridge. This activation then vaporizes the nicotine and flavor solution to produce vapor which the user inhales and exhales. The activation of the battery is initiated by a speaker that listens for the sound of the air, which is created when the user drags on the cigarette. This activation then powers the atomizer contained within the cartridge when connected to the cigarette battery.
