By now I’m sure you’ve heard about or even seen people who smoke electric cigarettes. They have rapidly been gaining popularity in the last few years and continue to gain reputation among individuals who want to stop smoking. But just what are electronic cigarettes?
Electric cigarettes, also referred to as electronic cigarettes, e cigarettes, or simply e cigarettes, are a relatively new piece of technology designed to mimic the act of smoking a traditional cigarette. They are considered by many to be a healthier alternative to smoking. Electronic cigarettes are a great way to get the nicotine you crave while eliminating virtually all the harmful chemicals associated with smoking tobacco.
Electric cigarettes have one of, if not the highest, success rate when it comes to smoking cessation products. I, personally, was a smoker for over a decade. I tried tons of smoking alternatives, but couldn’t find one I could stick with. That was until I was introduced to electronic cigarettes.
How do electronic cigarettes work?
The design of electric cigarettes, for the most part, is pretty simple. E cigarettes are most commonly either a 1, 2, or 3 piece system. However, all three types of e-cigs work in a similar way to achieve vapor production. They are all comprised of a battery which powers an atomizer or cartomizer which heats e-liquid (liquid nicotine) until it turns into a vapor.
The vapor is inhaled and exhaled exactly as you would if you were smoking a regular cigarette. The e-liquid comes in pre-filled cartridges or can be purchased in bottles if you have a refillable cartridge or tank system.
Where can I buy electronic cigarettes?
There are many places to purchase electronic cigarettes. I’m sure many of you have seen them for sale on the counter of your local gas station. If there is one thing I want you to take from this article it’s to NEVER purchase one of those electronic cigarettes from a convenience store.
The e-cigs that are sold in gas stations are far inferior to almost any brand you can purchase online. They are faulty, inconsistent, and sometimes even dangerous because of cheap, unprotected batteries. Yet they still charge the same amount, if not more, than electronic cigarette brands that are worth the money.
Many people try one of these convenience store electronic cigarettes and are immediately turned off from the thought of vaping because of the numerous problems and not so satisfying flavor offered by these inferior e-cigs. They just do not provide the full effect of what vaping is. I would advise purchasing your electronic cigarette through a reputable online source.
