The electronic cigarette is the latest cutting edge technology to come out of China. This simple yet effective device comprises of three components, the lithium battery, the atomizer and the cartridge.
The device works much like a real cigarette, once you draw on the butt end of the cigarette, air is drawn into the atomizer via two inlet holes on its side. The air flow triggers a switch and the battery heats up the atomizer which then vaporizes the fluid in the cartridge which is a mixture of nicotine, water, propylene glycol and some tabacco flavouring.
The smoker then inhales a nicotine and propylene glycol vapour, and a smokey coloured vapour is exhaled, giving the smoker the visual, taste and nicotine satisfaction of a real cigarette without the harmful effects of a real cigarette.
