Electronic Cigarette ~ E-Cigs – How Does it Work?
It looks like, feels like and tastes like a real cigarette and also provides the sensation of smoking a traditional cigarette, but without the fire, flame, tobacco, tar, carbon monoxide, ash, stub or smell found in real cigarettes. Electronic Cigarettes are one of the fastest growing trends among the tobacco-smoking community. While more and more people have heard about them, few know very much about how they work.
Based on a revolutionary technology, an E-Cigarette treats smokers to the experience of smoking anywhere they want! Almost all e-cigarettes are made out of three basic components: a mouthpiece, a heating element and a battery/wiring.
The mouthpiece (or cartridge) is a replaceable piece which is typically made out of plastic. It is designed to fit comfortably in the user’s mouth while smoking, with an opening to allow the vapor to flow out of the device. It also is the part which holds the liquid nicotine mixture. There are a wide variety of these mixtures, with nicotine levels varying from none and low to medium and high. They also come in an assortment of flavors, such as menthol and cherry. When the cartridge runs out, it is easily replaced for continued use.
The heating element (also known as the atomizer) is located adjacent to where the mouthpiece is inserted. This vaporizes the liquid, creating the nicotine vapor that is inhaled. They can be activated in several ways, often with buttons or through systems which detect when there is air being sucked out of the mouthpiece. These are also replaceable, but last much longer than the disposable cartridges – often somewhere between 3 – 6 months depending on the model and the frequency of use.
The last component is the battery and wiring, which is housed at the tip of the e-cigarette. Many models use lithium-ion batteries which have a long life and can be recharged. The rechargeable batteries can be plugged into wall outlets, and many models also come with a USB charger that is convenient for use on the go. The heating element is inserted into the section containing the battery and wiring, and this provides power to the atomizer.
Another exciting thing about these cigarettes is the availability of various types of cartridges and flavors. These cartridges are equivalent to a dozen of conventional cigarettes when it comes to consumption. So, E-Cigarettes not only make you healthier but also save you money!
One of the most attractive parts of the Smoking ECigarettes is the atomization chamber device that when puffed on creates a vapor-like smoke, just like a real cigarette. This vapor is a result of the nicotine that is found in the cartridge, heating up by the atomizer device and creating vapor smoke, but without the smell of smoking real tobacco. This is what the smoker get the nicotine hit that smokers crave, and the smoke like illusion, but without having to smoke a real cigarette.
