5 Need to Know Facts about E-Cigarettes

| Health | 1 December, 2015

ecigsWhat is an e-cigarette? How do you vape? These are questions that we all hear often by people who are new to the world of electronic cigarettes. However, there are many different interpretations of what an e-cigarette really is and how to use them properly that we felt that we put together this need to know guide for all you e-cigarette novices out there who want to find out everything there is to possibly to know about e-cigs in five quick facts.

To make sure all of our facts were right, and we ourselves knew what they were, we took a visit to a local e-cig supplier Grey Haze.

 What are e-cigarettes?

The dictionary definition of an e-cig is: ‘A cigarette-shaped device containing a nicotine-based liquid that is vaporized and inhaled, used to simulate the experience of smoking tobacco’

There are in fact a number of ways to describe e-cigarettes:

  • A mechanical device containing flavoured water vapour and small traces of nicotine
  • A safer alternative for nicotine addicts than traditional cigarettes
  • Electronic versions of traditional cigarettes but with less harmful effects

What are vaping pens?

A vape pen is a form of e-cigarette which has a heating element that is powered by a battery. This heating element will vaporize the juice which contains the nicotine in order for you to be able to start vaping.

What’s the difference between vape mods and mechanical mods?

There are two types of vaping mods available – a vape mod and a mechanical mod. A vape mod is a much bigger and powerful vape pen which is specially designed with extra functionalities such as a larger and stronger battery so you are able to vape for longer.

A mechanical mod is exactly the same as a vape mod but for more experienced vapours.

What is an e-cigarette made up of?

There are many different e-cigarettes and vaping pens out there which come in all different shapes and sizes but they are all made up of the same components:

Cartridge: The cartridge is the mouthpiece on an e-cig. It holds the e-liquid within the device and is a component that you will probably need to replace depending upon how much you vape.

Atomizer: This is the heating element (or coil) within the device and is the most important component within your e-cig. Just as the cartridge, you will need to replace this coil depending upon how much you vape as it is susceptible to wear and tear due to constantly heating the e-liquid.

Battery: Without the battery, your atomizer would not be able to heat the e-liquid. The battery is often the biggest component within an e-cig however they do range in size and power depending on which e-cig you have. Although, no matter the size of your battery it will constantly need re-charging depending upon how much you vape.

What are the best e-cigarettes to start off?

If you are a beginner to the e-cigarette game then you will probably want to start off with a starter kit to see what type of e-cigarette suits your needs the best. All e-cig suppliers such as Grey Haze will stock starter kits so weigh up your options and pick one that will be best for. When you become more experience then it would be best for you to progress from a vape pen to a vape or mechanical mod.
