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

  • Second hand ‘smoke’ from e-cigs poses much less of a risk to bystanders
