ACTIVE Technology

ACTIVE has a selection of cartridges and all-in-ones specifically designed for various cannabis oil types and viscosities. From distillates and novel cannabinoids to rosins, liquid diamonds, live resins, and others. 

Unsure which hardware to choose for your cannabis extracts? Be in touch and one of our viscosity experts will suggest the all-in-one or cartridge and battery voltage combination best suited to your oils.

Precise material selection, proprietary ceramic core, and advanced No-Burn technology™ combine to preserve delicate terpene and cannabinoid profiles. You can read more about ACTIVE technology here.

No. Cotton wicks are old tech and may produce harmful carcinogens if burnt.

That’s why ACTIVE uses a ceramic core with a built-in heating element that acts as the wick.

The ceramic core is surrounded with a semi-permeable layer of cotton to secure it within the atomizer housing. 

The cotton inside ACTIVE hardware never touches the heating element. This prevents the cotton from burning or overheating when the heating element vaporizes your oil. 

The cotton is not the wick in ACTIVE cartridges and all-in-ones. The ceramic core acts as the wick.

Yes! We work closely with the leading filling and capping solution providers and have developed various auto-filling options to save you time, labor, and for more precise filling and capping. Need help with your automation? Let us know and one of our technical experts will be in touch to advise.

About ACTIVE

Please refer to our contact page for email and local contact telephone numbers for sales, support, and general inquiries.

Our sales and customer support is located all across the US and Canada. We also have authorized distributors in Europe and Australia for distribution in those markets.  

ACTIVE has designed and manufactured vaping devices since 2018. The ACTIVE team has worked across the cannabis industry for decades, with skills ranging from growing to extracting to retail and everything in between.

We are a globally diversified manufacturer with state-of-the-art operations in China and beyond.

Before ACTIVE™, we were cannabis extractors and processors. Like you, we wanted safe, well-designed, and reliable cartridges - that didn’t burn our oil. Because there was nothing on the market up to the challenge, we started manufacturing vaping devices ourselves.

Troubleshooting and hacks

To charge your AVD battery, use either a micro-USB or USB-C charger, depending on the type of battery you’ve purchased. You probably have a charger from another electronic device.

We recently stopped including power adaptors with our batteries to reduce our collective carbon footprint and to help eliminate waste.

Note: Do not use power chargers that output more than 5 volts. These may damage the battery.

If you happen to get a power adaptor with one of our batteries, simply plug the smaller end of the adaptor into your battery and the other end directly into a computer or other electronic device with a USB port. It may look like it doesn’t fit, but it does! If you have trouble with the connection, flip the USB over and try again.

If your cartridge is sticky, clogged or you experience airflow or activation issues, cleaning your cartridge connections will most likely easily resolve the issue.

Pro-tip - grab an alcohol based product like isopropyl or ethyl. 70% alcohol is ideal. Lightly dampen a wipe or swab with your alcohol solution, making sure that your wipe or swab is not dripping. It should be only slightly damp. Please squeeze out any extra moisture.

Remember, ACTIVE cartridges and batteries have a premium center pin connector. Be gentle to avoid pushing in the connector as you proceed with the following steps. You can always repeat the procedure if your connection is very dirty.

 Using your swab or wipe, clean:

  1. Around the side air holes located at the base of the cartridge and above the threading
  2. Around the threads
  3. Around the center pin. (Being careful not to push in the center pin)

Allow the cartridge to fully dry before reconnecting to the battery.
