Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigs, were specifically designed to simulate the pleasure of smoking—the enjoyment of the inhale and the exhale, the tactile sensation, the gestures and taste—and to provide a safer alternative to nicotine intake. Traditional tobacco cigarettes produce harmful smoke and hazardous tar due to the burning process, or combustion. Unlike traditional tobacco cigarettes, electronic cigarettes produce a vapor instead of smoke. But how, exactly, do they work?
From Liquid to Vapor: How Electronic Cigarettes Work
Simply put, e-cigarettes harness the reaction that occurs when liquid meets heat. Electronic cigarettes have three basic components— a battery, a liquid-containing cartridge, and an atomizer—which together form a vaporizing system. The battery, like a flame, provides the energy that starts the reaction. When the battery is activated, the atomizer component heats the the flavored nicotine-containing liquid, also known as e-liquid or smoke juice. Due to the heat, the liquid is vaporized into an odorless aerosol mist, which mimics smoke. Like smoke, the vapor can be inhaled, providing a throat hit of nicotine, with a hint of flavor. In this way, e cigs offer the sensation of smoking. However, vaping, as it is called, is the unique smoke-free ecig experience.
With NuvoCig, the e cigarette cartridge and the atomizer are conveniently combined into one component, called the cartomizer. NuvoCig cartomizers come in a variety of flavors, including traditional tobacco and menthol. For somebody who vapes ecigs, sampling flavors can be a source of adventure and enjoyment. The NuvoCig menu of cartomizer flavors goes beyond the ordinary, opening the palate to fruity tastes and spicy delights. Even better, cartomizers come in different nicotine strengths, from high to zero.
An e-cigarette does not burn. As a result, the device does not generate the irritating, chemical-laden smoke that is detrimental to the respiratory system and health of smokers and bystanders alike. The odorless vapor does not settle into clothes and there is not stale aftertaste. Based on a battery and liquid, an e-cigarette offers a true alternative to the unpleasantness and danger of burning tobacco.
