Are you aware of the dangers associated with smoking and the adverse health effects it can cause for you and the members of your family? Cigarette smoke contains hundreds of microscopic chemical compounds, quite a few, such as tar, ammonia, acetone, nitric acid, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen sulfide, and carbon monoxide are harmful for health, and acetaldehyde, the chemical used in glues and resins are carcinogenic in nature. Most people cannot break the habit of smoking, as they feel satisfied with nicotine, another chemical released by cigarettes, which is addictive in nature. If you smoke in a poorly ventilated room, the microscopic smoke particles remain suspended in the air and your family members inhale it too (known as passive smoking), which causes health problems for them too. Electronic cigarettes provide smokers with the flavor of nicotine, and satisfy them without posing health issues.
The parts of an electronic cigarette
The e-cig is a cylindrical device, looking like the traditional cigarette, and consists of two cylindrical parts attached together and electrically connected to each other: The battery chamber and the cartridge holder. The battery chamber contains a LED on its tip, a wind sensitive sensor, a circuit board, and a battery. The other chamber holds a cartridge, containing liquid nicotine, propylene glycol, flavoring agent, and nicotine, placed within a vaporizer… a coil made of electric resistant material. Most kits containing an electronic cigarette contain a charger too, used for recharging the lithium-ion battery.
When the smoker drags on the e-cig, also known as vaporizers, the wind passing from its tip towards the cartridge holder activates the sensor, which, in turn, switches on the power supply to the circuit board, the LED, and the coil. The coil heats up due to its resistance to electricity and vaporizes the liquid within the cartridge, passing a mixture of water vapor (looks like the smoke released from cigarettes), and nicotine fumes. The LED lights up, replicating the effect of the burning tip of the classical cigarette. Since there is no smoldering ash, you can rest assured that your carpet and furniture remain safe when you smoke an e-cig. Another added benefit of this cigarette is that it does not leave any odor in your mouth as the traditional cigarette does. The e-cig turns off if the user does not drag on it for a preset amount of time. Available in different shapes, sizes, and across a wide price spectrum, they work out cheaper per puff when compared with the real cigarette. Little wonder that more and more people are switching over to vaporizers today.
Wide varieties of flavored cartridges and e-cigs
One can find a wide variety of cartridges containing different nicotine strengths and various flavors such as menthol, chocolate, strawberry, cocoa, classic tobacco, and many more. Typically, a cartridge contains between 250 and 300 puffs. Once exhausted, the user can take out the empty cartridge and replace it with a new one.
Different versions available
One can purchase from a wide range of models including `use and throw.’ This model does not come with a charger or a replaceable cartridge, and you have to dispose of it once its liquid is exhausted. While general models do not permit you to change the vaping experience by changing its wattage, and thereby the heating of the coil and the capsule it entwines, you can adjust the wattage of the box mods as per your preference. Box mods provide you more safety than the normal vaporizers do. In fact, some of them will not function if the heating coil is defective, if you insert the battery in the wrong way (reverse polarity), and prevents overcharging the battery by switching off the power when the battery is fully charged.
Good news for cigar lovers
If you hate the tiny sized vaporizers, purchase vape pens instead. They function in the same way that the vaporizers do, but they are available in different lengths and circumferences ranging from a normal pen to a large cigar. Certain vape pens also have an on/off toggle switch that allows you to switch them on and off whenever you want. Advanced models contain a wick that soaks e-liquid from the cartridge before vaporizing it. Protect your life and that of your loved ones, and enjoy the pleasure of smoking cigarettes by switching over to vape pens today.
