How Electronic Cigarettes Work By: R. Millard Hume -
E-cigarettes are considered smokeless cigarettes because there is no burning tobacco. E-cigs provide the "smoker" with a nicotine and flavored infused vapor. This short article describes how e-cigarettes work.
What are e-cigarettes?
E-cigs typically consist of a cartridge, an atomizer, and a battery unit. The battery powers the unit, and is typically a rechargeable lithium ion variety. The atomizer, the heart of the system, heats the liquid solution, without burning, into "steam" which can then be inhaled. The cartridge contains your choice of flavor, and a nicotine solution of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin.
Some manufacturers combine the atomizer and cartridge into a single unit nicknamed, "cartomizer". The combined unit provides two benefits, less parts to fuss with, and a fresh atomizer for each unit. Once the unit is assembled, simply turn the unit on (or in the case of higher quality units, the system will turn on automatically with each inhale) and inhale vapor.
No smoke with this smoking alternative, which makes it one of the more popular Cigarette Substitutes.
The main feature that makes e-cigarettes one of the more popular cigarette alternatives is the ability to adjust nicotine levels. Some units require that you fill the cartridge while others (especially those with cartomizers) let you buy pre-filled and controlled nicotine levels.
