How and Why E-Cigarettes Work

south_beach_smoke_batteriesElectronic cigarettes are considered a very modern option for smokers who want alternatives to the tradition version of smoking. So how and why are they replacing the conventional method? Here’s a look at how they work, and why they’re working so well traditional tobacco is getting overlooked in favor of vapor.

E-cigarettes are electronic devices. Powered by batteries, and rather simple in construction. Batteries come in a wide range of styles, sizes, and power levels, but one way or another, vaping cannot be done without a battery for power. They also contain an atomizer, which is the component responsible for heating up the liquid that holds the nicotine, and vaporizing it into the hit the user takes by puffing on the device. So, there is the device, a component that holds liquid (either a disposable cartridge that comes pre-filled, or a tank that the user fills), an atomizer, and a battery. That’s it, and all it takes for a traditional cigarette to be totally, utterly, replaced by technology without tobacco.

Why they work is simple; the design of this amazingly innovative technology has been perfected over time. Now, having been on the international market for over 10 years, e-cigarettes have seen many incarnations. So many styles and types exist, yet they all basically reel in the same result: nicotine-happy, satisfied vape-smokers.

E-cigarettes recreate the experience of smoking in every way. They satisfy the feeling of heavy smoke in the mouth. The repetitive motion of inhaling, exhaling, and having the hand-to-mouth desire satiated. There is flavor (and lots of it!), and the ability to have the habit in moments of boredom. Vaping is, simply, smoking redefined, reinvented, and revised for the modern smoker.

And with so many different smokers out there, there are now endless varieties to please nearly everyone. As makers of a variety of top brands in the market, we know firsthand. For a look at all of our different brands, check out our e-cigarette brand lineup here!

New Study Shows E-Cigarettes Can Curb Tobacco Cravings

E-Cigarettes are the Sensible AlternativeA new study published in Time has found that electronic cigarette use can help reduce tobacco cravings. Considering how electronic cigarettes work, it comes as no surprise to vapers that studies are now confirming what they’ve already experienced.

Researchers at KU Leuven studied 48 smokers who had no intentions to quit smoking for the duration of eight months. The smokers were divided into three groups with two vaping and smoking cigarettes for the two first months, while the third group was only allowed to smoke traditional tobacco cigarettes. The study’s main focus was to see if electronic cigarettes were able to decrease the smokers’ urge to smoke tobacco or if it removed the urge to smoke entirely.

The second stage of the study was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research on Public Health and during this phase, the third group used e-cigarettes.

The common result seen across all groups was that the number of tobacco cigarettes decreased by 60%. Other findings that emerged from the study showed that long-term smokers are most likely to trade their traditional cigarettes for the electronic counterpart, with 21% of the group having stopped smoking tobacco completely, with an additional 23% of smokers reducing the number of tobacco cigarettes they consumed per day by 50%.

It is quite well-known that electronic cigarettes usually contain nicotine (depending on the user’s preferences of nicotine level, or lack thereof) however, they do not contain tobacco or the many chemical toxins found in   traditional cigarettes. The study reported that e-cigarettes typically contain anywhere from 100 to 1000 times less toxic substances than traditional cigarettes, making them an obvious option for those looking to avoid such exposure.

“With guidance on practical use, the nicotine e-cig offers many smokers a successful alternative for smoking less – or even quitting altogether,” said Professor Frank Baeyens, who led the study. “E-cig users get the experience of smoking a cigarette and inhale nicotine vapor, but do not suffer the damaging effects of a tobacco cigarette.”

This is just one of many studies currently being done on the effectiveness and benefits of electronic cigarettes. The alternative of the smoke-free lifestyle, even with nicotine, is proving extremely beneficial to many smokers. Many e-smokers are certain this is the future of smoking, and studies such as this, prove we are on the right path.
