Unveiling the Manifold Aspects of the Electronic Cigarettes Industry, Exclusively for You!

How does the electronic cigarette work?

Smoking in a no-smoking zone?

Imagine that you are at your favorite restaurant, having a meal with your loved ones. While enjoying your meal, you notice that someone at the next table is puffing on a cigarette and letting out a cloud of smoke which travels across to your table. You get up to kindly ask that person to put out the cigarette because you feel that he is being rude by breaking the restaurant’s rule as smoking is not allowed and by exposing you and your loved ones to secondhand smoke. However, as you are getting up from your seat, you inhale some of the smoke and realize that it does not smell like smoke at all neither does it taste like smoke. It smells and tastes like apple! Confused, you sit back down! That which your neighbor was smoking certainly looks like a cigarette but it does not smell nor taste like a cigarette. What could it be?

The answer is simple. It is an electronic cigarette which is also known as an e-cig, an e-cigarette or a smokeless cigarette. E-cigs are generally designed to look like regular cigarettes but they are not. They do not contain tobacco and they do not require a match to be lit up. Instead, they are battery operated.

So why was your neighbor allowed to smoke in a restaurant where no smoking is allowed? Well, there are not restrictions on where e-cigs can be smoked. They can be smoked in public places in which the smoking of tobacco cigarettes are not allowed.

History of the e-cig

The e-cig was invented by a Chinese pharmacist known as Hon Lik in 2003. The story goes that the father of Hon Lik died from cancer due to his addiction to the smoking of traditional cigarettes. Hon Lik therefore decided to dedicate his time and effort into developing a safer alternative that would give people the same smoking experience without having any adverse effects on their health.

How does the e-cig work?

So, do you really want to know how they work? As mentioned before, it does not work with a match. However, when a traditional cigarette is lit, the tobacco burns and releases smoke which contains nicotine. This smoke is inhaled by the smoker and the nicotine in the smoke is delivered to the lungs of the smoker. In the same manner, the battery powers the e-cig and heats up a liquid containing nicotine, known as the e-liquid. As this liquid burns it produces a vapor which is inhaled by the user delivering nicotine to the lungs of the smoker.

The three main parts of the e-cig which you must be familiar with when learning how to smoke it are:

1.    The battery
The battery is normally a lithium battery that is rechargeable.

2.    The vaporization chamber
The vaporization chamber is a hollow tube inside the e-cig that contains the atomize which contains the e-liquid

3.    The cartridge
The cartridge consists of the e-liquid which burns and produces the vapor inhaled by the user. The e-liquid is also known as the “smoke juice” and is usually propylene glycol which is a substance that has been approved by the FDA to be used in food. Most e-liquids contain nicotine while some of them come without nicotine. Many manufacturers add flavorings to the smoke juice to make the experience better. There are numerous flavors of some juice.

Buying e-cigarettes

You can easily purchase e-cigs in retail stores around you but the best place to purchase them are online as you can easily find a wide array of brands and models online. The rechargeable models are probably the best types to purchase as one cartridge lasts about as long as a pack of twenty tobacco cigarettes. Once the cartridge is finished, all you need to do is replace it with another.


Like many, you are concerned about your safety. Well, the manufactures of the e-cig claim that it is healthier than traditional cigarettes because it does not contain all of the harmful chemicals such as tar and carbon dioxide which are associated with smoking tobacco cigarette. Many users of the e-cig says that it has helped them to quit smoking traditional cigarettes while others state that it has helped them to improve their sleep and has sharpen their senses of smell and taste.

It may not be an easy decision to switch to electronic cigarettes but be optimistic and give it a try. You will not regret it! You will see that the experience is the same or most likely better than smoking tradition cigarettes.
