It’s an alternative to smoking and a relatively new technology, but it is a simple one: a battery powered device that repl the act of smoking. These devices are small and resemble an actual cigarette, but unlike typical nicotine inhalers the e-cig actually produces a smoke-like vapor just like a regular cigarette. An atomizer located inside the device vaporizes nicotine infused e-liquid, which is triggered by a micro-sensor every time you inhale from the e-cigarette, giving you lush plumes of white vapor. No lighters, matches or flame of any kind is required to enjoy an e-cig, since the vaporization is all micro-technology contained within the unit. However, to further simulate the sensation of smoking a real cigarette, a bright led light is built into the tip of each e-cig that “ignites” with each puff.
Second-hand smoke? Not with the e-cigarette. Since the byproduct is only vapor, you can enjoy your e-cig in most places where cigarette smoking is prohibited. Bars, restaurants, sporting events, and potentially even work— standing outside in the cold for 10 minutes will be an inconvenience of the past.
