Basically all the genesis is, is a tank,

But it is not a cartomizer tank.
It has two electrodes(one is positive and one is negative) that come out of the top of the tank.

Then there is a stainless steel mesh wick in the center of these electrodes(doesn't have to be in the center, but usually is)

Then there are coils made of kanthal running from one electrode then wrapping around the SS mesh wick. and leading to the opposite electrode.

Then a top cap with a hole for airflow is placed on top.

So, it is essentially a rebuildable top-coil tank with a vertical coil and SS wick? Do they leak (through airhole) if you lay them down or invert them? Gonna have to look for these.

I'd have to figure some way to plug (and easily unplug) the airhole. I carry most of the time.

AFAIK (which ain't saying much), a Genesis (or Genny) is a type of tank; the name may be from the prototype, but I'm not at all sure.  Speculation: as the inevitable copies/clones came out, they all came to be known as Gennies (unless some few models had their own names).

I've just bought one yesterday, and have yet to build a coil for it, but I was wondering where it leaks from. I expect the wick hole, provided that the cap to the fill hole is still in place?

It will leak from a couple of places

The fill hole and the wick hole

You can't bung the fill hole, as it will stop it wicking quick enough, and obviously the wick cannot bung the wick hole completely as it will also stop the capillary action.

I'd just like to suggest a minor modification to the definition of mAh to include that it denotes a batterys capacity to hold a charge and has nothing to do with the rate at which it discharges. Some not familiar with electronics may not be aware of this distinction. Otherwise this is a well done glossary. Thanx.

Just ran across the Glossary. From what I have seen, I think there are a number of suggestions that have not been added. Here are a few more.

VW - Variable wattage
TC - Temperature Control
Nic  - Nicotine - Pure nicotine weighs approximately 1 gram/ml. A 100 mg/ml nicotine base will contain very close to 10% nicotine by volume.
Nicotine Base - A nicotine solution in PG, VG or both. In the US, the highest concentration easily available is 100 mg/ml. In the UK it is 72 mg/ml.

Are milligram and milliliter both defined?

Just took a look at  THE LIST  again.
 I didnít think it was so long ago when I posted the first draft 17 /0 5 / 2012 .
Things we now take for granted like temperature control hadnít been invented back then so lets have some suggestion from you all and get things up to date.

Don't know what's up with Crapatalk, links worked when you first posted this, but neither are working for me now!!  Strange links further back in the thread are working!

Anyway thought of another one - FIRMWARE. . K

FDA Deeming regulations

Grandfather date

Flavorings for vaping - any non-oil based food flavoring, natural or artificial, that produces either a desirable taste or odor when vaporized. Note that oil based material should not be used in vaping solutions since they can cause lipid pneumonia. Both PG and VG, contrary to common belief, are both alcohols - not oils.
