Thanks to the diligent work of numerous doctors and scientists around the world, many people are now aware of the harmful effects of tobacco and nicotine on the body. Nicotine itself is addictive, which draws people into smoking more and more. The tobacco in each cigarette leaves tar and carcinogens in your body, reducing your lifespan and significantly increasing your risk of developing lung cancer.
However, the concept of smoking still remains a fad. Harming your own body for the sake of smoking is never a good idea. Thankfully, companies have developed a device known as an electric cigarette that still provides the concept of smoking for people who are interested but reduces or even eliminates the harmful material involved. This is good for both people who are interested in smoking but are sensible enough to know the risks or people who are attempting to break the nasty cycle of nicotine addiction and need to feel as if they are smoking something to feel better. Either way, an electronic cigarette can help you.
What Are They?
An electronic cigarette, often abbreviated to e-cig or e-cigarette for short, is a device that functions as a portable, reusable cigarette. It typically doesn’t have any of the harmful substances that are found in traditional cigarettes, making them multitudes safer to use. There are also many customisable features that an e-cigarette can offer. For instance, there are different flavours of the liquid used in e-cigarettes as well as features that allow you to hold the flavour of the liquid in the e-cig longer.
How Do E-Cigarettes Work?
An e-cigarette consists of two major parts: the battery and the atomizing device. As you would probably imagine, the battery affects how much charge the e-cigarette has. After all, the e-cigarette has to be powered by something if it’s electronic. A smaller battery might make the entire e-cigarette smaller but you would have to charge it more often. Likewise, a larger battery will increase the size of the e-cigarette itself but it will also last much longer between charges.
Next, you will have to choose the atomizing device. This is where you put the liquid that you smoke. They range from being extremely simple to more and more complex. The simplest type of atomizer actually involves you dripping the liquid onto the atomizer itself. This will give it the purest flavour but it can become tedious as you have to do it every few puffs. Some of the more intricate atomizers will involve you putting the liquid onto something that will absorb the liquid and keep the flavour fresh for a longer amount of time. There’s even an atomizer that stores the liquid in a tank, meaning that you only have to refill it every day as opposed to every few puffs. Altogether, e-cigarettes not only provide a much healthier alternative to traditional smoking but also allow you to tailor your experience to be one that suits you best.
