What is an e-cigarette?
An electronic cigarette, (also referred to as an e-cigarette or e-cig) is a battery-powered device that simulates the look and feel of real cigarette smoking without actually producing any offensive smelling smoke or ash. Instead, e-cigarettes produce a form of vapor. This vapor comes from a mixture of nicotine, propylene glycol, and some flavor additives, and provides a flavor and physical sensation similar to that of inhaled tobacco smoke, while no combustion is actually involved in their operation.
E-cigarettes are made up of three basic parts; the atomizer, a mouthpiece (where the e-cigarette liquid is stored), and a rechargable lithium ion battery. When a puff is taken on an e-cigarette, the atomizer heats up and vaporizes some of the nicotine liquid found in the mouthpiece.
Although e-cigarettes tend to have higher upfront costs than traditional cigarette smoking, they will save you a lot of money in the long run. Devices such as Greensmoke’s e-cig can support up to 100 puffs before needing to replace the cartridge, which is much longer than what a convential cigarette lasts for. Once you purchase your e-cigarette, you simply need to buy additional cartridges for your device, which are very affordable in comparison to regular cigarettes.
Most electronic cigarettes employ a lithium-ion rechargeable battery to power the atomizer. Battery life varies depending on the model of e cigarette, frequency of use, and operating environment. Many different e-cig battery charger types are available, such as wall outlet, car, and USB chargers, allowing you to recharge your e-cig in a number of different situations. The battery is generally the largest component of an e-cigarette.
Currently, there are a few popular e-cigarette brands today such as Greensmoke and Blu cigs. These products are of high quality and offer many features such as cases that recharge your e-cig. They also come with product warranties, giving you peace of mind.
