Caution: smoking kills, excessive nicotine is addictive. 

Electronic cigarettes with nicotine are developed as a satisfying and promising alternative to tradition smoke-producing cigarettes. It has proved to be an alternative to cigarettes among adult smokers. 

Other Names: Electronic Cigarettes are also well known as E-cigarettes, E-cigs, Vape Pens and, Vaporizer Cigarettes containing a permitted amount of Nicotine that is just an Electronic Nicotine delivery system. 

So basically electronic cigarettes can be defined as a simple battery-operated device that is able to emit certain doses of vaporized nicotine to inhale (sometimes a non-nicotine solution, for quitting cigarettes).

It provides a similar sensation of inhaling tobacco smoke, but there is actually no smoke. Thus, making it a safe alternative. E-cigs have been marketed (enikotin.no) as a potent way to cut down smoking habit or enjoy the same feeling of smoking with a passion.

How these are different?

The Design: 

E-Cigs are a long tube usually resembling a cigarette, a cigar or pipe even a pen, but are reusable rather than disposable most of the times. Reusability is accounted as the cartridges can be refilled or replaced. Some are even disposable. Most of them have a mouthpiece or cartridge, a heating element, a rechargeable battery, electronic circuits.

How do this work?

The user sucks through the mouthpiece and the heating sensor is activated that converts the liquid solution into vapors, which can be inhaled. This is an aerosol solution with nicotine that produces Vapes. The nicotine content can vary from 0 to 24-36mg/ml. The battery powers the heating element and is the rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Some sensors have LED which show the activated heating. 

Moreover, the most important “the solution”, known as e-juice or e-liquid. It is made by extracting nicotine from tobacco as a key ingredient and mixed with propylene glycol and some flavors. There is a wide range of flavors available; smokers can look for the best for them (from enikotin.no). 

Why choose E-Cigs over traditional Cigarettes?

There are many types of research done that prove E-Cigarettes as a healthy option for smokers over cigarettes. 

E-cigs are less hazardous than tobacco for adult existing smokers. Coronary heart and lung disease from cigarettes can lead to the death of a smoker. Other lethal health issues include Lung Cancer, COPD, Emphysema, Bronchitis, but no such effects from E-Cigs. 

Some studies had found that E-Cigarettes can be used to help quit smoking as it has the potential for those who want to cut down the habit.
