Abstract

An aerosol-generating device is provided, including a storage container containing a liquid aerosol-forming substrate; a heating element spaced from the container for vaporising the substrate to form an aerosol; a transfer element between the container and the heating element to receive and retain the substrate, and to be coupled with the heating element to supply the received substrate to the heating element, at least one of the transfer element and the heating element being movable between a loading position and a heating position, such that when the movable element is in the loading position, the transfer element is in fluid communication with the outlet of the container and/or with the heating element, and such that when the movable element is in the heating position, the transfer element is in fluid communication with the heating element and the heating element is activated to vaporise the substrate retained in the transfer element.

Abstract

The invention relates to an aerosol-generating system (10) comprising a first air inlet (22) and an air outlet (24). The aerosol-generating system may further comprise a liquid storage portion (40). The liquid storage portion may hold a liquid aerosol-forming substrate. The liquid storage portion may have a liquid outlet (42). The aerosol-generating system may further comprise an airflow passage from the first air inlet to the air outlet past the liquid outlet. The aerosol-generating system may further comprise a wick (26). The wick may be provided in the airflow passage. The wick may be arranged to receive liquid from the liquid storage portion in response to a pressure drop in the airflow passage at the liquid outlet. The aerosol-generating system may further comprise a first heating element (28) positioned to heat the liquid in the wick. The wick may be arranged at a distance from the liquid outlet.
