What is an Electronic Cigarette


An electronic cigarette, or e-cigarette, is an electrical device that simulates the act of tobacco smoking by producing an inhaled mist bearing the physical sensation, appearance, and often the flavor and nicotine content of inhaled tobacco smoke; though lacking its odor, and intended to omit its health risks. The device uses heat, or in some cases ultrasonic , to vaporize a propylene glycol- or glycerin-based liquid solution into an aerosol mist, similar to the way a nebulizer or humidifier vaporizes solutions for inhalation.Most electronic cigarettes are portable, self-contained cylindrical devices the size of a ballpoint pen or magic marker; though sizes vary, mainly due to differing battery capacities. Many electronic cigarettes are designed to resemble actual cigarettes or cigars, or even pipes. Most are also reusable, with replaceable and refillable parts, but some models are disposable.

The primary stated use of the electronic cigarette is an alternative to tobacco smoking, or a smoking cessation device, as it attempts to deliver the experience of smoking without, or with greatly reduced, adverse health effects usually associated with tobacco smoke. Nevertheless, concerns have been raised that use of the device still carries health risks, and that it could appeal to non-smokers, especially children, due to its novelty, flavorings, and possibly overstated claims of safety.The possible benefits or adverse effects of electronic cigarette use are a subject of disagreement among different health organizations and researchers. Controlled studies of electronic cigarettes are scarce due to their relatively recent invention and subsequent rapid growth in popularity. Laws governing the use and sale of electronic cigarettes, as well as the accompanying liquid solutions, currently vary widely, with pending legislation and ongoing debate in many regions.

Most electronic cigarettes take an overall cylindrical shape although a wide array of shapes can be found: box, pipe styles etc. First generation electronic cigarettes were usually designed to simulate smoking implements, such as cigarettes or cigars, in their use and appearance.New generation electronic cigarettes often called mods, PV's (personal vaporizer) or APV's (advanced personal vaporizer) have an increased nicotine-dispersal performance, housing higher capacity batteries, and come in various form factors, including metal tubes and boxes. Many electronic cigarettes are composed of streamlined replaceable parts, while disposable devices combine all components into a single part that is discarded when its liquid is depleted. Common components include a liquid delivery and container system, an atomizer, and a power source

E-cigarettes are more effective than nicotine patches and gum in helping people to quit smoking. Electronic cigarette does not contain tar or tobacco.

High current run through a thin wire causes it to get hot, when saturated cotton is in contact with that wire it causes the liquid in the cotton to turn into vapor.
:)
Vapor makes us happy!
 
Very clear definition, thanks! When I think of an 'electronic cigarette' or 'ecig' I think of a small white tube with a glowing led at the tip, looks just like a ciggi, and any other device that doesn't resemble a cigarette I would call a personal vaporizer

Electronic cigarettes are totally different from traditional cigarettes. Vaping is related with electronic cigarettes and traditional cigarettes but smoking is related with tobacco cigarettes. In vaping there is fruit essence or liquid which is turned into smoke by the electronic atomizer. There's no such type of burning in electronic cigarettes.

Thank you for long description. I have read it out twice to understand the real facts of e-cigarette. Here, have learned e-cigarette a device which contains liquid or e-liquid. Can you tell me what type of liquid it is? Is it possible to enjoy e-cigarette without any e-liquid?

Great info, thanks for the summary!
 
I've been using an Aspire K3, which was recommended to me by my local vape shop. I just went along with very little knowledge about it, and the different types of e-cigs/vapors. I really appreciate this information, and am very happy I've stumbled across this site.

thank you for sharing, i'm new in vaping, could you tell me what's the difference between starter kit and other general kit?
 
Nice post. Thanks For sharing. Its very important to knowing information about e-cigarette.
E-cigarettes are designed to look a ton like cigarettes, yet the vast majority of them are quite little thicker. On most models you'll discover, the "butt" end screws onto the long piece of the fake cigarette for a realistic appearance. Some manufacturers put speckled effects on the ends to make them look more like the tobacco variety, and the tips illuminate when you inhale simply like the ember on the end of a cigarette.

I am for a healthy lifestyle! I am against smoking, even electronic cigarettes. My friend recently quit smoking, every time he wanted to smoke, he made himself a coffee or a cocktail with berries. He searched the Internet for information about blenders and accidentally got on the website about milk frothers: milkfrothertop.com Now he wants to order one of the models on Amazon

INTRODUCTION TO E-CIGARETTES
d375460951577d587a2d848b6e862450_large.jpg


An electronic cigarette, also known as E-Cigarette. It is a portable electronic atomizer that is modeled after cigarettes. Charge via USB. The magical thing is that it is a blind eye. It uses a nebulizer to make propylene glycol or glycerin into a mist. It is indistinguishable from the smoke and does not contain tar and suspended particles. It is much less harmful to people. And because it does not burn, it will not produce second-hand ash, it is safer than cigarettes, and it is not so harmful to people around. At the same time, because e-cigarettes generate something harmful when they are used, they also look cool, which has attracted many young people. Electronic cigarettes are divided into three types: Mini (cigalike), Ego and Mods.

Mini:

mini_large.jpg


It is recommended to start with Mini first, whether it is the shape of the hand or the feeling of using it is the closest to the cigarette, and the price is the cheapest of the three. There are two types of Mini, one is to use electronic airflow to control the heating device, which means that when you inhale, there is smoke coming out, similar to normal smoking; the other is manual, you have to press a button to get out smoke. At the same time, the Mini also has a one-time (equivalent to the amount of 1-2 boxes of cigarettes, thrown after the end of the suction), or can be used repeatedly for charging, but because of the small size, the battery power is not large, can not last for a long time.

Ego(Vape-Pen/Mid-size)

Ego_large.jpg


Ego is slightly larger than Mini. It is similar to a cigar. It can replace nicotine liquid with different concentrations and different concentrations. The smoke generated should be thicker. The battery life and smoking experience are also greatly improved compared with Mini. However, Ego only has a manual style, that is, you have to press a button to smoke, so it is suitable for people who have used e-cigarette for a while.

Apv or Mods

Apv_or_Mods_large.jpg


Also known as Apv (Advanced personal vaporizer), the volume is relatively large, the style is similar to the flashlight or the lower part is like the shape of a cigarette case, and then the cigarette holder is extended, and the parts can be assembled according to their own needs, so it is suitable for advanced electronic cigarettes. user. Because Mods is large in size, the battery is also large (some can accept different voltages), power and life are also the best among the three. Mods can also be filled with your favorite nicotine liquid, and the smoke is also the strongest. of. Because Mods is large in size and requires some experience in e-cigarettes to play, it is not recommended for novices to come up.
