Aerosol delivery device and method for operating an aerosol delivery device

Abstract

The invention relates to an aerosol delivery device (10, 100, 100') comprising an aerosol generator (12, 106) for generating an aerosol in the device and a fluid conveying unit (14, 16, 18; 102, 104, 130) configured to induce a first fluid flow (26, 120) having a first flow rate in the device for transporting at least a portion of the generated aerosol outside the device and to induce a second fluid flow (32, 122) having a second flow rate in the device for conveying a fluid into the device, wherein the fluid conveying unit comprises a vibrator (18, 104) for vibrating the aerosol and the first flow rate is equal to or smaller than the second flow rate. Further, the invention relates to a method for operating an aerosol delivery device (10, 100, 100'), comprising the steps of generating a predetermined amount of an aerosol in the device, inducing a first fluid flow (26, 120) having a first flow rate in the device for transporting at least a portion of the generated aerosol outside the device, inducing a second fluid flow (32, 122) having a second flow rate in the device for conveying a fluid into the device and vibrating the aerosol, wherein the first flow rate is equal to or smaller than the second flow rate.
