An e-cig, also known as electronic cigarette, is a battery powered device which can be an alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes. It provides inhaled doses of nicotine or non-nicotine vaporized solution. The vapor provides the similar taste or feeling of smoking a tobacco cigarette but with a relatively lower amount of nicotine.
Since smoking tobacco cigarettes is more of a force of habit rather than an addiction, e-cigs can be a good alternative especially if you are trying to quit. The e-cig takes the elongated shape of a regular cigarette. It may take the outward appearance of regular smoking cigarettes, but it can also come in the “pen style” which resembles a ball point pen. Most e-cigs are made up of refillable, reusable and replaceable parts.
There is a liquid solution, which may or may not contain nicotine, that you load into the e-cig before “smoking” the vapors. For people who are trying to quit smoking, the amount of nicotine can be adjusted in a decreasing manner to slowly get rid of nicotine dependence. The liquid solution is heated up at the mouthpiece-cartridge of the e-cig. There is a sensor which heats up and vaporizes the solution when inhaled. The tip of the e-cig has an LED light that mimics the lit end of the regular cigarette when puffed. Some e-cigs are battery operated and/or rechargeable. The different parts can also be disposable and are replaceable.
E-cigs are very advantageous to use. It does not produce smoke, so it is environment-friendly and it means that you can use it almost anywhere. It can also help you quit smoking and it lessens your nicotine dependency. This amazing e-cig has no fire, no tar, no carbon monoxide, no ash, no second hand smoke, and no stub. It lets you enjoy the satisfaction of smoking without the risks that come with smoking tobacco products.
