Title: MULTIPLE DISPERSION GENERATOR E-VAPING DEVICE
Abstract:
A base (71) for an e-vaping device (60) is configured to couple with multiple cartridges (22-1 to 22-N) configured to generate separate, respective dispersions. The cartridges (22-1 to 22-N) of the electronic vaping device (60) comprising: a vaporizer assembly (300A) configured to produce a vapor, the vaporizer assembly (300A) including, a first tank (309) configured to store a pre-vapor formulation, and a heater (306) configured to heat the pre-vapor formulation and form a vapor; and an atomizer assembly (300B) configured to produce an aerosol, the atomizer assembly (300B) including, a second tank (331) configured to store a pre-aerosol formulation (332), and an atomizer (330) configured to atomize the pre-aerosol formulation (332) and form the aerosol without heat. The base (71) may include multiple connectors (33-1 to 33-N) electrically coupled to the power supply. The connectors may be configured to couple multiple dispersion generators to a power supply of the base (71). The base (71) may include control circuitry (11) configured to independently control dispersion generation by dispersion generators coupled to the base (71). The control circuitry (11) may independently control dispersion generation by the first and second cartridges based on cartridge information accessed through at least one of the first and second connectors. The control circuitry (11) may control dispersion generation by controlling power supplied to the dispersion generators.
