history of Electronic Cigarettes?
The electronic cigarette was
invented by Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik in 2003 and
introduced to the market the following year. The company he
worked for, Golden Dragon Holdings, changed its name to
Ruyan (meaning "to resemble smoking").
#2: Do electronic cigarettes produce smoke?
No, nothing is burned. Electronic Cigarettes emit an odourless water vapour/fog.
Why is it called “Vaping”?
Cigarettes produce smoke,
therefore we refer to this as smoking. People who use
cigarettes are called smokers. Electronic cigarettes produce
vapor, therefore we refer to this as vaping. People who use
electronic cigarettes are called vapers.
e-juice or e-liquid?
E-Juice (also known as
e-liquid or smoke juice) is a non-toxic liquid comprised of
USP grade Propylene Glycol and/or Vegetable Glycerine (both
of which create the vapor), non-toxic food grade flavouring
and nicotine if desired. The e-juice is available in varying
strengths in a wide variety of flavours. A typical
e-cigarette user vapes approximately 1-3 ml of liquid per
e-Juice tastes closest to a real cigarette?
New e-cig users generally try to
find an e-juice that will taste like their favourite brand
of cigarette. Because e-liquid does not contain tobacco or any of
the other thousands of chemicals, you will never find an
e-juice that tastes exactly like a cigarette. The tobacco flavoured e-liquids try to mimic tobacco cigarettes.
You will probably need to try a few different e-liquids to find
what you like best.
How long will my Electronic Cigarette last?
Batteries have different life spans depending on the
type type (such as 510, 808, ego or an ecigarette Mod) but you can be fairly certain to get at least several
months use out of them. Once the e-cig battery does not hold
its charge as long as it used to, you should order a
replacement battery. Just like your cell phone and computer
– the more you charge it, the weaker it gets.
(used in 3-piece e-cigs in conjunction with a cartridge)
will need to be replaced more frequently than your
e-cigarette batteries. Realistically, a standard electronic
cigarette atomizer will last 2-12 weeks before it gets weak
or you notice muted flavours.
(used in 3-piece e-cigs in conjunction with an atomizer)
have an indefinite lifespan. Simply remove the batting
inside, wash it out, dry it and place it back inside the
mouthpiece. Or, toss it out and use a new one when the
batting gets gunked up and no longer tastes as good.
(used in 2-piece e-cigs) are meant to be disposable but they
can be refilled several times until you notice it is not
producing as much vapor or not tasting as good. The lifespan
of your electronic cigarette cartomizer depends a lot on the
type of e-juice you are using. Generally thicker/darker
e-juices will clog up the cartomizer quicker and you won't
get as many refills. Thinner/clearer e-liquids will allow
you more refills.
(used in 2-piece e-cigs) are meant to be refilled several
times but have different lifespans depending on the type of
e-juice being used. Generally thicker/darker e-juice will
clog up your electronic cigarette clearomizer coils quicker
and you won't get as many refills. Thinner/clearer e-liquids
will allow you more refills.
Unopened e-liquid can last 2 years if properly stored in a
cool, dark place. Open e-liquid will last just as long if
stored properly but the nicotine strength may slightly
degrade over time. Always check the expiry date on your
e-juice bottles to be sure as some e-liquids may have a
shorter expiry date.
