Looking for the best electronic cigarette to purchase? Having trouble telling the difference between different electronic cigarette brands?
The components of various brands of e-cigarettes are basically the same. The mouthpiece contains a replaceable cartridge filled with nicotine, water, propylene glycol solution and optional flavors or aromas. A sensor detects the airflow created by inhaling through the e-cigarette. The sensor activates an atomizer which pulls droplets of the liquid into the flowing air and vaporizes the nicotine. Propylene glycol which is odorless and harmless makes the vaporlook like smoke. The body of the e-cigarette contains a rechargable lithium battery and a microprocessor which activates a colored LED at the tip to simulate real smoking.
Though electronic cigarettes may look very similar, there are many brands to choose from – So here are a few tips to bear in mind when you begin shopping.
If appearance is an important feature and you want to stick with the traditional look you need not worry. Most manufacturers design their electronic cigarettes to closely resemble a regular tobacco cigarette. The tip even glows red when you inhale. You’re not limited to this style however since some manufacturers have created exotic designs to appeal to the more stylish and fashion conscience among us. They may even offer a choice of LED tips so that when you inhale your e-cigarette tip will glow green or blue. E-cigars and pipes are also available now.
The volume of nicotine vapor inhaled will no doubt matter a great deal to some long time smokers. That’s where the atomizer comes into play. This is what vaporizes the nicotine solution. In some brands of e-cigarette the atomizer, if not cleaned regularly and properly, can become clogged and reduce the amount of vapor available to inhale. There is a two piece model on the market that has the atomizer and cartridge combined into one unit. With this you are getting a fresh atomizer each time you change cartridges which can eliminate the problem of clogging.
To ensure lasting battery life you should charge new batteries for 12 hours even if the charger says it’s done charging. To recharge attach the charger for at least 4 hours. This should last for a full day. Another option is to purchase a car battery charger if you will be travelling or are typically on the road a lot.
E-smokers can choose from a variety of flavors for their smoking/vaping pleasure. The traditional tobacco flavor is available as are menthol, vanilla, chocolate, coffee or an assortment of fruit flavors.
Cartridges of varying levels of nicotine strengths can be purchased equivalent to that of regular flavor tobacco cigarettes as well as light and ultra light strengths. If you’re accustomed to smoking light cigarettes then you should purchase a medium strength nicotine cartridge since the high strength could deliver a much higher dose of nicotine than you are use to. Some e-cigarette users elect to start with the low strength until they get use to that level and move up to the higher dosage if they feel they need to. However, if you’ve been thinking about giving it up altogether the lower strength might just make it possible for you to eventually drop down to zero nicotine content while still being able to enjoy the hand to mouth aspect of smoking/vaping.
This information will hopefully provide you with the knowledge needed to make a well informed choice when you’re shopping for your own electronic cigarette. It might seem to you an expensive investment at the onset but when you take the time to tally up what you normally spend on tobacco cigarettes in as little as a few weeks you’ll easily see it is money well spent. Go for quality and pay close attention to the manufacturers guarantees. This will help you to avoid possible mechanical problems found in some cheaper models.
