Electronic Cigarettes are taking the world by storm. Invented in China in 2004 by a man seeking an alternative to regular cigarettes, they have gone from strength to strength in popularity.
An "E Cigarette" contains no regular tobacco. Instead, they are made up of an electronic device which warms flavoured liquid and turns it into a vapor. Vaping of sucking on the device as you would do with a regular or "analog" cigarette, a smoke like substance is produced, giving all the appearance of regular smoking.
And the liquid is made up of flavors which can mimic the taste of analog tobacco cigarettes. Not only are the flavors available in tobacco, there are others like coffee, coconut and chocolate to name just a few.
An E Cigarette usually comes in three separate parts. Firstly, a rechargeable battery to power the device. Secondly, an atomizer which connects to the battery and works by heating the liquid. Lasty, a cartridge filled with a cloth type "wick" which contains the liquid.
There are many different electronic cigarette products on the market. There are even disposable vaping kits available.
The liquid is made up of non harmful products, many of which are food grade. The product which helps to produce the special vapor is either vegetable glycerin or propylene glycol, which is generally used as the ingredient in smoke machines. Both are considered non harmful by the FDA in the United States. The flavor ingredients are generally the same as you would use in cooking.
All the products are available in various strengths of nicotine and even nicotine free.
Hundreds of thousands of people around the world have used the E Cigarette to stop smoking tobacco cigarettes. This is despite the fact that the e cigarette is mostly not allowed to be promoted as a "quit smoking" device.
Some countries have gone so far as to ban the domestic sale of the nicotine based liquid, unfairly suggesting that e cigarettes could lead to people taking up tobacco smoking. However, the liquid can usually be sourced by many reputable suppliers in China.
While the smoking experience is not the same as regular tobacco, it is very similar and leads many people to never "light" up a cigarette again. Generally, users are extremely positive on the experience of vaping.
