What Are Electronic Cigarettes
An electronic cigarette is a device that looks like an actual unlit cigarette, only that it mode of mechanism is different. An E-cig uses a battery to vaporize nicotine which is then delivered into one’s lungs. The device has a special sensor that senses one inhaling, which activates the cartomizer into action.
Components of an electronic cigarette
1. Cartridge/ Mouthpiece: This is the compartment that holds the liquid nicotine extract within the electronic cigarette. It is also the part used as the mouthpiece when vaping. This cartridge can be detached very easily from the other components while refilling or if you want to replace it.
2. The Atomizer: This is the component that heats up nicotine within the cartridge in readiness for inhaling. This component is powered by a battery which makes the whole vaporization process possible. It is also known as the cartomizer.
3. Battery: Electronic cigarettes use a rechargeable button cell which is its key source of power. This battery can be recharged with a charger which comes with the electronic cigarette. This is mostly found in the central part of an electronic cigarette, though this may vary with manufacturing companies.
4. Red LED: This is a light emitting diode that lights up when one attempts to inhale from the e-cig. This is mainly activated by the internal censor alongside the cartomizer.
Many people today use e-cigarettes as compared to the traditional ones because they are much safer and economical. For instance, an e-cig contains nicotine extracts only, while traditional cigarettes deliver more than 29 chemicals and toxins to the lungs. In addition to this, electronic cigarettes do not produce smoke and can be smoked from anywhere without invading anyone’s privacy. Moreover you can choose from more than 25 nicotine flavors available with electronic cigarettes only. Safeguard your lungs and love ones from secondary smoking by using an electronic cigarette instead of the traditional ones.
