Title: METHOD FOR CONTROLLING A VAPING DEVICE AND VAPING DEVICE FOR CARRYING OUT THE METHOD
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for controlling a vaping device comprising, in particular, an electrical power source, a reservoir for a liquid to be vaporised, an atomiser for vaporising the liquid so as to create an aerosol, an inhalation sensor, and a control unit, whereby the reservoir and the atomiser can be combined in a single component. The method of the invention is characterised by the following steps: (a) test to detect the activation of the vaping device, and proceeding to step (b) when the vaping device is activated; (b) test to detect the inhalation of a puff, and proceeding to step (c) once the inhalation of a puff has been detected; (c) monitoring of a first control event during each puff, and returning to step (b) if the first control event does not occur, or continuing to step (d) if the first control event occurs; and (d) placing the vaping device on standby once the first control event has occurred; an aerosol can be generated in response to inhalation when the device is activated, but not when the device is on standby.
