Patent US10201190


Issued 2019-02-12

Cartridge For Use With A Vaporizer Device

Apparatuses including vaporizer device bodies and cartridges are provided. In some implementations, an apparatus includes a cartridge and a body. The cartridge comprises a storage compartment configured to hold a vaporizable material, a heater chamber including a heating element configured to heat the vaporizable material to generate an aerosol, and an outlet for the aerosol. The body comprises a receptacle configured to insertably receive and couple to the cartridge, and first and second electrical contacts configured to complete an electrical circuit with the heating element. The cartridge and the body are configured to define an airflow path comprising an air inlet passage having a first side formed by an exterior surface of the cartridge and a second side formed by an internal surface of the receptacle. The air inlet passage is configured to deliver air towards the heater chamber, which is in fluid communication with the outlet.
