I was recently charged with the task of writing about electronic cigarettes and, until now, I have to admit that the concept was foreign to me. I did some research online and I was amazed at just how many results showed up on my screen when I simply Googled the phrase “electronic cigarette”.
What are electronic cigarettes?
Electronic cigarettes have been on the market for a number of years already and they really are a clever little invention. Their main goal is to give smokers a safer, healthier alternative and, apparently, they are also helpful when trying to cut down and quit smoking altogether.
Electronic cigarettes are now in their so-called fourth generation and they are even more user friendly than their predecessors. At this point, the “mini” is the most realistic electronic cigarette and it measures 100mm in length which is the same as a regular cigarette.
Electronic cigarettes contain that tobacco taste but, on the plus side, they lack the harmful substances found in conventional cigarettes. Smokers can indulge their cravings without taking in many of those harmful toxins. It’s almost too good to be true, right?
Wondering how it works? Well, it’s a fairly simple concept and consists of an atomiser, battery and a nicotine chamber that can be refilled. Smokers can hold and smoke the e-cigarette just like a regular one. It even creates “smoke” and the end lights up too! Smokers can also choose different nicotine strengths and change the nicotine cartridges when necessary. This way, they can reduce their intake of nicotine until they are able to quit completely.
A single nicotine cartridge will last for the same amount of time as 15 to 20 cigarettes would. This amounts to a huge financial savings and cartridge options include standard, medium, low and no nicotine options.
Sounds good so far? Well, that’s not all! Due to the fact that these e-cigarettes don’t emit any harmful substances or real smoke, they are safe and legal to enjoy in public! Just think about the winter months when you are forced to stand out in the cold just to get your nicotine fix. Well, now you can smoke in the office, restaurants, bars and other public areas.
Non-smokers can also enjoy the benefits of these electronic cigarettes. If they are worried about passive smoking, this innovative e-cigarette will eliminate that risk.
