1. A cartridge for use with a vaporization device, the cartridge comprising:

  • a body having a long axis and a short axis;

    a mouthpiece at a proximal end of the body;

    a reservoir within the body, the reservoir configured to hold a vaporizable material;

    a heater comprising;

    a pair of plates extending in the long axis;

    a wick; and

    a resistive heating element in contact with the pair of plates and with the wick, wherein the wick is configured to contact the vaporizable material; and

    a pair of exposed contact tabs integrally formed from the pair of plates and folded over an outer surface of a distal end of the cartridge, each contact tab of the pair of exposed contact tabs disposed and configured to physically contact one of two contact surfaces within the vaporization device to complete an electrical circuit with the vaporization device when the cartridge is inserted into the vaporization device, the pair of exposed contact tabs disposed substantially in a first plane, the two contact surfaces within the vaporization device disposed substantially in a second plane, the first plane being substantially parallel to the second plane when the cartridge is inserted into the vaporization device.
