Are you thinking about investing in electronic cigarettes for yourself? With all the hype surrounding them, it’s no surprise. These wonderful works of technology are often touted as the smoker’s solution to quitting, as their effectiveness has been proven time and again. Since the release of e-cigarettes many hundreds of ex-smokers have already changed their lives and their habits by moving onto smokeless cigarettes altogether, and even in many cases breaking free of their nicotine addiction.
The Original Concept
Cigarettes and smoking in general has always had a certain attitude of disapproval aimed toward it—and for reasons that are not too bad. The health risks of regular cigarette smoking are debated constantly, with little to prove that the health risks of smokers will not be increased in some way. But some people find the habit to be relaxing, therapeutic, or even necessary to their daily routines. With those points in mind, the idea of the electronic cigarette was first formulated and developed. In 2003 was when the design that is mostly used today was first developed, patented, and produced, though improvements have certainly been made along the way. The very first conception of the smokeless cigarette was actually developed in the 1960’s, and later in 2001 the first smokeless cigar came along.
These days we see all kinds of variety and improvement in the technology, with such things as 2-piece cigarettes (instead of the usual 3 or 4 part models), flavored cartridges, varying e-cigarette battery lengths, and decorated cylinders (you can see what all these terms mean in an Electronic Cigarette glossary, if you like). The most commonly used model of e-cigarette in this current industry is the model with three parts: a cartridge, a battery, and an atomizer. The cartridge stores the concentrated vapor in its liquid form; it is here that the nicotine and flavoring is stored. The liquid from the cartridge flows into the atomizer and is vaporized whenever the user takes a drag. The battery powers the whole thing, and it all works without burning, ash, smoke, or any tar in your lungs.
Why They Work
There are 3 reasons that e-cigarettes are currently seeing such huge levels of success:
- Smart design
- Solid technology
- And an eager market
The design and technology in the machine are what bring it to the top of the marketplace formed by smokers looking to move on from their old habits. So far these smokeless cigarettes have received far better reviews than many other smokers’ products, including nicotine gum and patches. The design is good and there are solid, measurable results—and that’s all it takes to make a product successful.
