Electronic Cigarettes: Not Just For Cigarette Smokers Anymore
Perhaps you have seen electronic cigarettes in use, or perhaps not since they are still a novelty in the United States. But you have probably heard of the tobacco-free alternative to smoking that looks and feels like a real cigarette in your hand. Have you been wondering how the little electronic cigarettes actually operate?
What Does an Electronic Cigarettes Do?
Chinese inventor Hon Lik developed his product for the Ruyan Group, and his patent on electronic cigarettes describes this operation as follows: “Lip pressure sensed by the mouthpiece primes the electronic circuit. The user draws in diluting air, which after a momentary delay switches off the electric pump and heater after each puff. Nicotine is vaporized ultrasonically at high temperature (atomized) in a fine aerosol of non-toxic propylene glycol, which condenses at room temperature into a visible puff of mist.” This unique process is not called smoking, it’s called vaping because there is no smoke, there is only water vapor produced by electronic cigarettes in use.
Since we all know there’s nothing new under the sun, especially in China, let it be known that the engineering for Hon Lik’s innovative product is very similar to the way eerie smoke is created to enhance theatre stages and disco dance floors. Electronic cigarettes are tiny little mood makers that provide a personal experience for the user, perhaps a smoker who desires to reduce or stop smoking tobacco, or simply a pleasure-seeker looking for some fun. Electronic cigarettes can be used by anyone over the age of eighteen years.
Not A Cigarette Smoker?
And, there’s good news for cigar and pipe smokers now, too. Electronic cigars and pipes are available with the same technology and accompanying options. As with any other electronic device, they all come with chargers. Electronic cigarettes, cigars and pipes are all designed to recharge in automobiles, wall sockets and USB ports. International converters are available for travel. But recharging is not the most interesting of options.
What’s interesting is the flavor of the electronic cigarettes.
A mind-boggling array of flavored liquid for use in the tiny vaporizers in electronic cigarettes is available in local shops and also online. If you have been overwhelmed by the variety of flavored coffees on the market, prepare to be stunned by the variety of flavors available for electronic cigarettes. The list of flavor options is seemingly endless.
