What are Vapor cigarettes?
Vapor cigarettes are alternatively known as an electronic cigarette (e-cig or e-cigarette), personal vaporizer (PV) or electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) and should not to be confused with smokeless cigarette. It’s a battery-powered device in most cases there is a lithium-ion battery which is rechargeable. The battery powers the heating element which simulates tobacco smoking can also emit non-nicotine vaporized solutions. It generally uses a heating element known as an atomizer that vaporizes a liquid solution. Some solutions contain a mixture of nicotine and flavorings. Manufacturers say that Vapor cigarettes are an alternative for tobacco smokers who want to quit from smoking. The Vapor cigarette was invented in the 1960s, but it wasn’t popular until a decade ago. The e-cigarette is a Chinese invention. The first ones came from the Ruyan Company in 2004. The Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association now estimates that roughly 4 million Americans use the battery-powered cigs.
How its shape and look like
The e-cigarette could be different in shapes and sizes. Some of them more or less like long cigarettes; others look like cigars or pipes. Few look like ballpoint pens. The majority is reusable with replaceable and refillable cartridges. A small percentage of products are throw-away one disposable e-cigarettes.
How they work?
All latest models are automatic - when the user sucks on it, a sensor activates a heating element that vaporizes a liquid solution held in the mouthpiece. The user can choose whether or not to have nicotine in the flavored liquid solution. In older models (manual models), there is a little button which turns the heating element on and off. An LED indicates whether the device has been activated when the user inhales. They all work the same basic way.
Instead of smoke from burning tobacco, users inhale vapor containing nicotine (with the exception of versions which claim to be free of nicotine), flavor additives, and other chemicals. When users inhale from the end of an e-cigarette, a battery-operated vaporizer heats a liquid solution into a vapor.
A typical e-cigarette consists of a battery, a heating element and a cartridge containing nicotine, propylene glycol and water. The
Levels of nicotine in the cartridges can vary drastically and many also contain candy-like flavorings. They operate by electronically
Vaporizing the nicotine solution, creating a mist that is inhaled into the lungs. After the user inhales, the residual aerosol, or vapor,is exhaled into the surrounding air.
