What Is An E-Cigarette

To put it simply it is an electrical gadget that mimics smoking with a tobacco cigarette. Everything from the most basic starter kit up to the most elaborate devices producing huge clouds of vapour are all E-Cigarettes. 

There is a but though, within the industry the term e-cigarette is now generally used to describe the bog standard pen style of starter e-cigarette. A good example of this is the Innokin Endura T18E.

It can be daunting for a beginner to get started. Especially as most of us have a “friend” who knows all about it and knows what is best for you!! Trouble is what is best for your “friend” is not necessarily what is right for you. In addition there is so much jargon around such as vaping, mod, tank etc. that it can be difficult to know what on earth some people are talking about. So below I am going to do my best to explain what an E-Cigarette is, how to use it, and the options that are available.

How do they work?
Basically a battery heats up a metal coil, the coil is surrounded by e-liquid which soaks into a cotton core, this e-liquid is super heated to “vaporise” it. This is when you inhale and the vapour is drawn into your lungs, just like a real cigarette.
Are they safe?
I am not medically qualified to say for sure but there is a lot of research proving they are certainly safer than cigarettes, in fact just recently the UK government has issued a report saying they are 95% safer the cigarettes, you can read the report here. After all the only thing you are inhaling is water vapour and food flavouring, providing you only use regulated and legal E-liquids.
Are they Expensive?
They can be. kits start from around £20 and up from there, some are as much as £200. When you compare to smoking though they are very inexpensive. Once you choose which starter kit you want all you have to buy after that is e-liquid and coils. One 10ml bottle of liquid will last 1 week if you smoke the equivalent of 20 a day, and typically a bottle is around £3. So you can see where you save the money!!
Which E-liquid should I choose?
all always ensure that the E-liquids on sale are UK regulated and legal, in other words TPD compliant. E-liquids typically now start with 18mg nicotine, then drop to 12, 6, 3 then 0 nicotine. If your a heavy smoker start with 18mg liquids then slowly reduce the nicotine level until you have weaned off your nicotine addiction. Once you have settled on strength it is then just a case of choosing your flavour!! A good starting point is the Ultimate Version 2 range here.
