For Those Who Are Curious

The e cigarette is becoming more and more common among many people. It is not unusual to walk down the street and see someone puffing away on one. As a result, you may be curious about what they are made from and how they work. The concept of the cigarette itself is actually quite simple.

Instead of inhaling tobacco smoke, a “vaper” (as an e-cigarette smoker is called) will inhale a special type of vapour that contains nicotine. There are no other chemicals involved in this process, except for the food flavouring that is added to the “e-liquid” that is put in the cigarette’s cannister. With fewer chemicals involved, there is much less of a health risk overall. Of course, nicotine is a drug and a stimulant and therefore needs to be used in moderation just like any other type of stimulant.

In order to heat the water and vapourise it, the atomiser (another part of the device) is heated by the battery. This is what causes the vapour to form and therefore allows the individual to “smoke”. This smoking produces a sensation that is almost exactly like smoking. It provides thick vapour that appears as tobacco smoke, but it also offers a throat hit. While not exactly like smoking tobacco, the e-cig has become a very welcome and valuable substitute for many people across all age groups.

Choice of Model

There are different models to suit different smoking habits. Some people smoke quite a lot, and for this reason we would recommend a large battery. These batteries do not look like normal cigarettes, rather they resemble large pens. In spite of this, they produce the same amount of vapour and will actually last a lot long. Most of our cigarettes can also be recharged. This means that you can use the same battery over and over again. If you want, you can choose one that looks like a normal cigarette, but the batteries do not tend to last that long.

Take a look down through our various models. You will be bound to find something that you like. The device is also a very slick looking accessory and all of them come with cannisters and the necessary hardware. It is now time to change your habits for the better.

The Rise Of The E Cig

Some employees say e-cigarettes increase their productivity and help them steer clear of tobacco. But health regulators are looking into possible risks to e-cig users -- and to co-workers.

It is interesting how a new product catches on, and the rise of the e cig, or electronic cigarette is no exception. For years, people have struggled with a love-hate relationship with tobacco products because of the well-documented history of tobacco being so harmful to a person’s health. Study after study has shown that tobacco products are major contributors to cancer, heart disease, COPD and a host of other health problems. Of course the other part of the equation revolves around the difficulty people have in quitting their tobacco habit due to the addictive properties of nicotine.

Nicotine occurs in the natural in tobacco and is a very poisonous substance, so much so that if a pure drop of the substance were to be place on a person’s tongue, that person would die immediately. The concentration of nicotine in cigarettes is very diluted, but effective to keep the addiction going nevertheless.

The e cigs were originally marketed to assist people in switching from tobacco products to the e cigarette, as a means of getting off of tobacco. The e cig can include nicotine at various levels of strength, so a person could simply switch with the nicotine being at a level similar to the tobacco cigarette they are smoking, and gradually reduce the nicotine in the e cig over a period of time, until it is at a zero level.
Psychologists tell us that a second powerful force that keeps people smoking is the procedural process that people go through. Actions such as ‘lighting up’ with one’s own personal lighter, smoking after meals and at social events, are powerful psychological forces, that evidently give people the feel of accomplishment and worth.

An ecigarette consists of a hollow tube that is made of plastic or metal, and on the inside is a container full of a propylene glycol liquid, a battery and an atomizer. When the ecigarette is switched on, the battery heats up an element that vaporizes the liquid and the user then inhales and exhales, just as if they were smoking. At this point there is no evidence that inhaling the vapor is any more harmful than breathing in on a rainy day.

Ecigarettes offer different flavors such as chocolate, strawberry, lemon, mint, menthol, peppermint and many more to suit the user. The popularity is also enhanced by the cost, which in most cases is less than that of regular cigarettes, and they are certainly less messy since there is no ash to flick or burn holes in your shirt. The average e cig will last about as long as 20 regular cigarettes would last before it needs to be replaced.

The future of this product seems very bright in that many feel that by using the ecigarette they can stay away from the disease inducing and detrimental tobacco cigarette. This certainly seems to be the underlying reason for people switching over. In 2011 there were only 55,000 e cigs sold, compared to over 3.5 million per year by the end of 2012. It is estimated that these figures will grow as the product gains more acceptance.
