What is Vaping ?

Vaping is the inhalation and exhalation of vapour when using an electronic cigarette / vaporiser. It is the evolution of smoking, replacing many negative associations with the old habit of tobacco combustion. The technical term for vapour is called liquid aerosol, it can be compared to how a kettle heats up liquid like water and produces a steam vapour.

Vaping works when the e-liquid is heated creating a vapour that is then inhaled and exhaled. Vaping is seen as a healthier alternative to smoking in many parts of the world including the UK and USA. We recommend doing research on the benefits and making your own personal opinion on the subject.

How do electronic cigarettes work ?

There are 3 main components to a vaping device:

  1.  Battery
  2. Clearomizer or tank (the thing that holds the e-liquid). Usually a plastic or glass vial with a wick inside and a coil of resistance wire that heats up. 
  3. The e-liquid

The battery sends a current through the coil of resistance wire (inside the clearomizer) which has been wrapped around a wick or cotton which is gently heated to evaporate and turn the saturated e-liquid to vapour.

Who is vaping designed for ?

Anybody aged over 18 years old who wishes to have an alternative to smoking traditional tobacco products.

Do e-cigarettes produce a smell ?

Some do, some don’t – some have a pleasant smell that resembles the taste of the e-liquid. Some have no smell at all.

What am I actually inhaling ?

Vapour made from evaporated Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerine, flavourings and (if applicable from oversea’s) nicotine.
