The guide is just an overall look at E-Cigs, rather it be a simple question to an advanced explanation, visiting the guide will be a quick fix for those of you that have taken a new interest in these amazing devices. Follow the arrows and take our short but informative guide to vaping path.
An E-Cig, short for Electronic Cigarette is a device that is battery powered to produce an inhaled doses of nicotine by way of a vaporized solution. E-Cigs were designed to be an alternative to smoking, but as some will tell you, it has grown quite popular even to those who didn’t smoke tobacco before.
The best electronic cigarettes work by using a small, rechargeable lithium-ion battery to power an atomizer. When powered, the atomizer vaporizes a nicotine solution, also known as eLiquid, and that vapor is inhaled by the user.
Because eCigs produce a vapor and do not burn any tobacco, they do not produce by-products of combustion, one of the most dangerous elements of traditional tobacco-burning cigarettes. Also, the vapor contains mostly water vapor, nicotine, flavoring and a catalyst for vaporization. Because of this, the vapor is nearly odorless and, when exhaled, contains little else besides plain water vapor. This is the reason eCigs are able to get around smoking bans; they only produce water vapor.
The batteries on an eCig vary in lifespan, but generally last anywhere from 2 hours to a full day of moderate smoking. Most starter kits include two batteries as well as a charger.
When assembled, the eCig battery is activated by a pressure switch that senses when the user takes a drag. When activated, the battery sends power to the atomizer, vaporizing the nicotine solution in the cartridge.
Some electronic cigarettes batteries are manually operated using a push-button rather than automatically triggered by a pressure switch. Using these devices requires the user to press the button and inhale in order to draw vapor from the device. While some view this as tedious and unnecessary, the manual battery does have its purpose. The pressure switches used on some devices can be somewhat sensitive causing the battery to be activated unintentionally when used outside in windy weather. Those who regularly smoke eCigs outdoors, especially in a moving convertible or in a car with the windows down sometimes prefer the manually operated batteries in order to prevent unintentional activation of vapor production.
That said, automatic batteries are becoming more and more reliable and accurate, better able to differentiate between a smoker taking a drag and ambient wind. Many of the modern eCigs with automatic batteries are able to be smoked outside without any problems in all but the most windy conditions.
Most modern eCigs don’t require any sort of preparation in order to use them once assembled. The user first charges a battery, screws the atomizer onto the end of the battery, then slides a full cartridge onto the end of the atomizer. The device can then be used as frequently as desired until the battery or cartridge runs out.
This is another major benefit of eCigs over tobacco products. They required no preparation in order to use once assembled. You can simply throw the device into your pocket or purse, pull it out and take a drag when the urge strikes, and then put it back into your pocket or purse to use again later. As long as your battery is fully charged and you have a full cartridge, you should be able to enjoy the eCig for the full day in this fashion.
If you are a smoker, an e-cig can help you in many ways. Believe me when I say this, but e-cigs are a life saver. Before I first used the e-cig, I was smoking a pack and a half of cigarettes each day. As soon as I took my first pull from the e-cig, I haven’t touched a cigarette since. If you think I’m trying to talk you into switching over to an e-cig, then you are exactly right, I am. After vaping for a bit, I started doing research on just what I was smoking for so many years. The question is, what is actually in a cigarette?
With that being said, you can obviously see that it isn’t good for you, which has always been quite obvious. Now let me tell you what the e-liquid contains…
Flavoring, Nicotine, Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin. It’s as simple as that.
When you vape the e-cig, the e liquid is heated by the atomizer when then creates the vapor.
Switching from an analog, better known as a cigarette to an e-cig is obviously better for your health and for those around you. Don’t just take it from me… I would suggest you doing just as I did before I purchased my e-cig. Search around the Internet and look at the reviews, the facts and the benefits. The information that I have provided you here today is from personal experience and information I’ve gathered from public websites, blogs and forums.
Electronic cigarettes are very simple in design. The battery powers the atomizer, the atomizer heats up the e-liquid and the cartridge holds the e-liquid. You can also drip your e-liquid into the atomizer manually and use an empty cartridge as a mouth piece, much like a drip tip.
