All You Need To Know About E-cigarettes
What are e-cigs, how do they work?
An e-cigarette is an electronic device which allows the user to inhale nicotine through vapour rather than harmful smoke found in traditional cigarettes.
E-cigarettes don’t use tobacco and don’t produce tar or chemicals like carbon monoxide which are the most dangerous elements in cigarettes.
E-cigarettes work by heating up a liquid that has nicotine and flavouring inside which turns it into vapour which is then inhaled.
What types of e-cigarettes can I buy?
You can purchase many types of e-cigarettes and even custom build your own after some practise. Cigalikes are designed to make it look like you are smoking a normal cigarette which is good if you don’t like the look of e-cigarettes.
Vape pens are another type which is very common in shops and other services. These are shaped like pens and feature a tank which is used to store liquid inside of, you can even replace the coils and use rechargeable batteries.
Pod Systems are rechargeable devices that are shaped differently, more similar to a USB drive. They have liquid stored in them and can be taken anywhere easily due to their size.
How do I pick an e-cigarette?
A e-cigarette that rechargeable with a refillable tank will deliver nicotine more effectively and is faster than a disposable model, they are likely to give you a better chance of quitting smoking.
If you only smoke lightly and with long breaks then the vape pens and pod systems would be the best option for you.
