What are they and how do they work?

What is an E-Cigarette?

With the age of technology, it was only a matter of time before someone eventually had to “virtualize” the common cigarette. Watch someone “smoke” one of these new E-Cigarettes, and it is fascinating. They can be very discrete, bold and brash or very stylish. They can look like a pen, they can look like a bold fashion statement with fluorescent pink or bright sunshine yellow, or they can look just like the real thing. 

When a user “smokes” it, there are white puffs when they exhale coming out of their nostrils and mouth just like the real thing, but there is no second-hand smoke: just flavored water vapor. When the user draws a breath, a colored light glows on the end of the device. When the user stops drawing in a breath, there is no second-hand smoke: the device just stops. Nobody close at hand even smells anything. But best of all, these cigarettes don’t contain any tobacco.

OK, so how does an E-Cigarette work?

An E-Cigarette is a cigarette-sized tube with a colored LED light on the end, containing a battery and an atomizer cartridge that holds liquid. When the user draws in, a pressure-activated switch turns on a mini heating element and produces a vapor that looks like smoke.

This vapor is essentially the same smoke commonly seen in nightclubs, concerts and theatres in fog generators when used for special effects. The vapor can also contain nicotine in doses regulated by the user, and a variety of flavors: among them chocolate, mint, tobacco, apple, and many others. Users can even get the flavor of their favorite brand of cigarettes.

Where does the Nicotine come from?

Nicotine doses in the cartridges are rated in low, medium, high, and zero nicotine. The high strength cartridge has the nicotine equivalent of a regular cigarette, though some have been known to exceed that, which we do not recommended for your health safety. In some brands of the device, such as BestEciggy it is even possible to create your own custom flavors and regulate the nicotine level yourself.
