What are Electronic Cigarettes?
Electronic cigarettes offer smokers an alternative to traditional cigarettes made by with tobacco. An e-cigarette uses a distinctive design to provide consumers with a nicotine experience without all the mess associated with smoking. A key component of the electronic design is e-liquid, the nicotine based fluid that give the device flavour and the vaping experience. Anyone considering the switch from mainstream smoking to vaping should learn more about how e-cigarettes work. Here are some basic things you should know about e-liquids for e-cigarettes.
What is E-Liquid?
E-liquid is the powerhouse behind the e-cigarette design. E-cigarettes mimic what smokers are accustomed too, but they are actually a form of vapourizer. The vapour produced in an electronic cigarette uses a nicotine based liquid, known as E-liquid. This is the solution that the atomizer vapourizes to give the sensation of smoking. E-liquid varies in terms of flavour and nicotine concentration. Without the nicotine additive, smokers would not get the same quality from an electronic cigarette as they do with traditional cigs. To have the best vaping experience it is important you use quality E-liquid. Best4ecigs use the World’s largest E-liquid manufacturer, Hangsen to provide its customers with only the best quality, prescription grade e-liquid available on the market today.
Why does E-Liquid have Flavour?
Manufacturers add natural flavours to the liquid to enhance the taste of the nicotine. In some products, the flavour is created to mimic cigarettes like menthol and other popular tobacco flavours and in others, it gives the smoker more flavour options. Consumers can choose from standard tobacco, amber leaf, raspberry, chocolate cherry, as well as other treats.
What is in E-Liquid beside Nicotine and Flavourings?
The consistency of e-liquid comes from a propylene glycol (PG) base and/or vegetable glycol (VG) base, which have been widely used as food additives and as a base solution for personal care products.The exact formula depends on the company manufacturing the product. In addition, the solution may contain distilled alcohol or water to improve the vapourizing action and throat hit. Best4ecigs e-liquid is derived from the natural tobacco leaf and has been rigourously tested and approved by many internationally recognized regulatory bodies and safety organizations, including European MSGS,CE Certification and RoHS Certification.
What is a Throat Hit?
The throat hit is what makes the e-cigarette similar to smoking. The throat hit is the sensation one feels when inhaling the vapour. As you draw in on the e-cig, the vapour touches the back of the throat so it feels like you are smoking a real cigarette, as opposed to just pulling in air. This is where the consistency of the vapour and the flavour registers to create true smoking appeal.
How Much Nicotine is in an E-Cigarette?
That depends on the e-liquid concentration. A full-flavoured cigarette offers 16-18 mg of nicotine. That varies slightly with different types of cigarettes. E-liquid comes in a variety of concentrations from no nicotine to 24 mg. This allows smokers to customize their exposure and dependence. The higher the concentration, the better the throat hit. Experienced smokers looking to cut back will generally select high concentration e-liquid and then reduce the nicotine every few weeks until they reach their goal.
How Does an E-Cigarette Work?
An electronic cigarette is a vapour device that utilizes a cartridge containing e-liquid, an atomizer that vapourizes the liquid, a lithium-ion battery to provide power and adapter to charge the battery. The adaptor plugs into a computer USB port, car or mains outlet. The devices vary by product. Some will charge a number of cigarettes at once in a box similar to a cigarette pack while others only handle one battery at a time. The cigarette case contains a larger battery that charges the smaller ones in the e-cigarettes.
Whether your goal is to quit entirely or you are just looking for a less messy or cheaper way to smoke, e-cigarettes offer some key advantages. Smoking an e-cig eliminates the smell and hassle of tobacco. Trying out different flavours and concentrations of e-liquid customize the smoking experience in a way that traditional cigarettes cannot match.
