What are Electronic Cigarettes and Why You Should Make the Switch


Electronic cigarettes were invented in 2003 by Hon Lik, a pharmacist in China, though very first traces of earliest electronic cigarettes can be found in 1963 patent by Herbert A. Gilbert, who patented a device called "a smokeless non-tobacco cigarette" that involved "replacing burning tobacco and paper with heated, moist, flavored air.". Gilbert's invention did not reach mass production, while Lik's electronic cigarettes and were first introduced in the Chinese market in 2004. Since its introduction, electronic cigarette popularity spread around the world and grows steadily ever since. 

How does electronic cigarette work?

Electronic cigarettes, also called personal vapourizers, are devices that consist of two main parts: battery and atomizer. Battery provides the power for the heating element in the atomizer. Atomizers consist of tanks, which are filled with e-liquid and heating elements, which heat up the e-liquid. Usually, batteries have a button, when pressed, triggers battery to work and therefore heat up the e-liquid, this way producing vapour which is inhaled by the user. Vapour, unlike traditional tobacco cigarette smoke, does not have any smell, because it is water vapour. This means, that your hands, clothes will never have that hideous smell and people surrounding you will never complain about the second-hand smoke if you switch to electronic cigarettes.

What is an e-liquid?

SimpleVape.ca sells high quality e-liquids, which consist of USP Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin, aromatic flavours from FlavourArt (Italy) and The Flavour Apprentice (USA) and in most cases - nicotine. Varying levels of nicotine are available from non-nicotine (0mg) to strong (24mg). E-liquid is heated up and turned into water vapour during use. It contains less toxic chemicals in comparison to traditional tobacco cigarettes, that is why it is a better alternative to it.

Why you should make the switch to electronic cigarettes?

First of all, it is a safer alternative to traditional tobacco cigarette smoking. While vaping electronic cigarettes you do not produce any second-hand smoke, only water vapour, thus you will forget about bad smell.

Imagine never having to go outside for a smoke in cold winter evening or having to leave your friends when you are out with your at a bar or a nightclub! Also, forget the combination of a pack of cigarettes, lighter and ashtray - you only need a sleek-looking, small device to satisfy your needs.
