Beginners start somewhere, even when it comes to electronic cigarettes. Guaranteed, if you were curious and confused before reading this, you won’t be afterwards! And, if you’re a tobacco smoker, you may even be interested in trying our e-cigs just to finalize the experience for yourself!
E-cigarettes are electronic cigarettes. They contain no tobacco, produce no tar, emit no smoke, and produce no odor. They are powered by electricity, not fire. However, they provide an experience that recreates the whole process of smoking, including the nicotine.
There are several main components to e-cigarettes: the battery, the cartridge, the atomizer (which is held inside of the cartridge) and the e-cigarette unit that houses them all. Inside of the disposable cartridge is a specifically measured amount of liquid nicotine, this is what gets vaporized during the smoking process. It gives the user the feeling of smoking, with vapor instead of smoke, all the while carrying the nicotine.
E-cigs can look almost identical to traditional cigarettes, down to the slightest details, including the light on the end, yet they are made of entirely different materials. Inside of an e-cigarette is a battery, which gets its power from being charged. There is also a microprocessor smart chip, which works by activating once a signal is sent when the user puffs on the unit. The battery then sends a charge of power to the atomizer inside of the cartridge, which in turn heats the e-liquid, vaporizing it into the hit for the user. All of this happens within seconds of the user bringing the e-cigarette to their mouth and puffing!
It’s amazing how much technology goes into these little devices, isn’t it? In short, e-cigarettes are electronic cigarettes. They are alternative cigarettes. And they are smokeless cigarettes. While these are all names they are called, they basically describe these awesome products that make smoking possible sans the smoke!
