Electronic cigarettes are a smart alternative to the conventional cigarette, it gives he same effects of smoking a cigarette without emitting smoke. The electronic cigarette was invented by Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik in 2003 and introduced to the market the following year and export of the products began in 2005–2006.They have been in the market for more than four years. Initially they were little hard to use but now with the release of fourth generation of e-cigarettes these troubles have been overcome. An e cigarette consists of a battery, an atomiser and a cartridge chamber that contains a small quantity of nicotine and water.
When you draw on an e cigarette the cravings of the smoker are alleviated due to the traditional taste of tobacco from the smoke like vapour that is emitted.The feel of holding the e cigarette, the simulated glow of a traditional cigarette and the intake of nicotine provide an awesome alternative to the standard cigarette. When smoking an e cigarette, it operates a micro switch which heats up the element within the atomiser to produce a realistic smoke effect that is in fact just a vapour which disperses into the air within a few seconds. This vapour provides a pleasant odour, which does not bother other people and disappears as if the vapour disperses so that your clothing, car, home and office do not have the pungent smell of tobacco around.
e cigarettes can be smoked anywhere as they are not banned. The cartridges can be replaced in varying strengths of tobacco. e cigarettes also have an age bar. It cannot be sold to persons below 18 years of age. electronic cigarettes are seen as a safe alternative to smoking cigarettes by claiming that most of the harmful material produced by the combustion of tobacco in traditional cigarettes is not present in the atomized liquid of electronic cigarettes. Despite claims that electronic cigarettes are safer because they contain no carcinogenic substances, manufacturers include warning labels with their products because they contain nicotine. The primary stated use of the electronic cigarette is as a smoking cessation device, as it attempts to deliver the experience of smoking with reduced health hazards. Nevertheless, concerns have been raised that use of the device still carries health risks, and that it could appeal to non-smokers, especially children, due to its novelty, flavorings, and claims of safety.
