If you want to know how electronic cigarettes work, you should read the rest of this article because we are going to tell you everything there is to know about this product.
An electronic cigarette is basically a pen-type device that allows you to vaporise flavoured liquid or dry herbs so you can enjoy them just like you would a hookah or a bong.
The first electronic cigarettes were released in the early part of 2000 and were made in China. These China-made e-cigs, though, were eventually banned after accusations that they are drug delivery devices circulated in the United States and Europe. As you know by now, the US and Europe have their own local brands of e-cigs. So, how does an electronic cigarette work?
If you take a look at an image of an electronic cigarette, you will see that is basically a portable vaporising tube. It has three basic parts: the cartridge that you fill with flavoured liquid or dry herb, the battery and the vaporising chamber that turns the liquid into vapour. Whenever you take a puff, a small drop of the flavoured liquid is drawn from the cartridge and vaporised in the vaporising chamber. A fourth part, the mouthpiece, lets you enjoy the vapour that comes out.
There are basically three types of electronic cigarettes in the market: disposable, non-disposable, and build it yourself. Disposable e-cigs are cheap and you can get started for £10. A single disposable typically lasts a few days before you need to throw it away. Non-disposable items are jus that: you can use them again and again. You only need to change the cartridge containing the liquid every now and then.
The build it yourself models allows you to assemble and pair different types of vaporising chambers with the other parts. These products, though, are not for amateurs and it’s typically reserved for vapers (e-cig users) who are very experienced and have knowledge of electrical charges.
If you are just starting out, we suggest that you try the disposable and non-disposable models first because you won’t need to make any adjustments to get the right kind vaping experience. The device would have pre-set temperatures that you dial into to adjust your experience.
There are many brands that you can choose from. And it will definitely help if you read websites that publish survey results on the best brands in the market. In the alternative, you could also go to, and sign up for membership, at vaping communities. Ask the people there what brands they would recommend.
There are people out there who want to start using electronic cigarettes believing that they can quit cigarettes. However, the truth is that there is a very big difference in the experience of burning tobacco and tobacco-flavored liquid. You can buy e-cigs that allow you to burn herbs, though. Just be ready for the price tag because they typically cost over £200 for a really good product.
