Facts About E-Cigarettes

Different Types

E-Cigarettes come in several different forms including cigalikes, tank systems and mods:

Cigalikes

Cigalikes are small, compact and designed to look and feel more like regular cigarettes

Tank

Tank systems use a clear cartridge so you can see how much e-liquid you have left

Cloud Chasers

Try and make the biggest vapour clouds possible using modified, high-power equipment

Mods

‘Mods’ have been changed to alter looks and performance and have a range of appearances

How They Work

Vaping is actually quite different to smoking, but it’s not that complicated!

  • E-cigarettes work by heating liquids to create vapour
  • The 'Atomiser' is made of coil/coils and is used to heat the e-liquid
  • E-Liquid has a a Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin base, with flavour and nicotine
  • The heated e-liquid produces vapour, which is then inhaled by the user

Benefits of Vaping

The humble vaporiser has several advantages over its cigarette cousin

  • No fire, ash or smoky smell
  • No tobacco, carbon monoxide, tar or any other by-products of smoking
  • Cheaper in the long run than smoking
  • Range of flavours to choose from
  • Can vary the nicotine based on personal requirements, from high nicotine to none at all
  • Second hand ‘smoke’ from e-cigs poses much less of a risk to bystanders
