E-cigarettes work by heating a liquid to convert it to vapour, or mist, which you inhale. The liquid can contain nicotine or a variety of nicotine-free flavoured e-liquids.
An e-cigarette has three main parts:
a rechargeable battery
an atomizing chamber
a tank containing the e-liquid
Inhaling on an e-cigarette is just like a regular cigarette. Simply put the e-cigarette up to the lips, press the power button - this activates a heater to convert the e-liquid to a steam vapour. Inhaling this vapour through the mouthpiece delivers it into your throat and lungs, just like a normal cigarette. The same sensations as smoking but most importantly with a vapour instead of smoke.
Two types of e-cigarettes
At Pure Vapor we have two types of e-cigarettes. The ready to use style (Switch) uses prefilled disposable tanks containing e-liquid, simply replace the tanks when they run out. The hybrid variants – Solo, Fusion, Fusion 2, Vaptio P1 or the Ego Vape Kit can be refilled manually with e-liquid. All are easy to use, come with clear instructions and we're always on hand to answer any questions to get you up and vaping.
So, what are you actually inhaling with an e-cigarette?
The vapour inhaled when smoking an electronic cigarette contains propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine. These are both commonly used in foods and are safe. Many e-cigarettes also contain nicotine (in varying concentrations). This nicotine is addictive, just like the nicotine in conventional cigarettes – but without the 4000+ harmful chemicals that go into your lungs. UK Government research has found E-cigarettes are around 95% less harmful than tobacco smoking.
