Electronic cigarettes are battery-powered devices that deliver nicotine by heating an “e-liquid”. Electronic cigarettes, also known as e-cigarettes, e-vaporizers, or electronic nicotine delivery systems, are battery-operated devices that people use to inhale an aerosol, which typically contains nicotine (though not always), flavorings, and other chemicals. They can resemble traditional tobacco cigarettes (cig-a-likes), cigars, or pipes, or even everyday items like pens or USB memory sticks. Other devices, such as those with fillable tanks and Jupiter pen, may look different.
Vaping typically involves a glass or metal chamber which has an electrical current passing through it. This way, it can be heated to a controlled temperature, creating a vapor with minimal combustion, meaning you inhale much less smoke.
When you decide to start vaping, it is best to go for an e-cigarette starter kit. It will give you everything you need in one package. It will tell you where the parts are, for example: mouthpiece, flavor cartridge and atomizer, ccell oil pen, heating coil, LED light and others. You can be sure that all the parts will work together and you can get started as soon as it arrives.
Types and models
There are three basic types of e-cigarettes: cigalikes, eGos and mods. A website could offer different models within each type. For example, a website might offer the eGo and the eGo VV. They would be counted as two different models of eGo. If products only varied in colour or flavour of e-liquid, then they were not counted as separate models.
Cigalikes look similar to tobacco cigarettes. They tend to have small batteries and can be disposable or rechargeable. Cigalikes are small, light and mimic analogs almost to perfection.
The eGo is probably the world’s most popular electronic cigarette model. It’s considerably larger than a cigalike, and provides better performance.
Mods or modified device have a bigger tank, bigger battery and more customization options. Longtime vapers often enjoy using a vape mod at home with a palm battery vape, while still using e cigs or vape pens when outside the house. Mods pass by many names, such as mechanical mods or advanced personal vaporizers. Any vaping device that isn’t an e cig or vape pen can be called a mod.
