1. A personal vaporizer, comprising:

  • a tank module comprising a fluid chamber and a vapor passage extending through the fluid chamber, the fluid chamber configured to contain a vaporizing solution;

    an atomizer module comprising a bowl having an upper edge and an air aperture, a heating element arranged in or adjacent the bowl, the bowl configured to accept vaporizing solution received from the fluid chamber;

    a check valve comprising an insulator housing, a conductive shell inside the insulator housing, and a sealing mechanism inside the conductive shell, the conductive shell having an air inlet and an air outlet, an intake air flow path defined through the conductive shell from the air inlet to the air outlet, the sealing mechanism providing a seal inside the conductive shell, the seal interposed in the intake air flow path, the check valve arranged so that that the air outlet communicates with the bowl air aperture and the conductive shell is electrically connected to the heating element; and

    a battery assembly, the heating element connectable to the battery assembly through the check valve so that actuation of the battery delivers electrical energy to the heating element, causing the heating element to heat and vaporize the vaporizing solution;

    wherein the bowl has a first wire hole and a second wire hole extending through a bottom wall of the bowl and a channel extending transversely from the second wire hole.
