While it isn't tech exactly, the last few years have seen a major rise in the sales of a whole new way of taking in tobacco. Yes, e-cigarettes and vaping have had a major surge in popularity recently. In many countries, it has overtaken nicotine patches regarding sales, and there seem to be no signs of e-cigarettes slowing down in momentum. If you're new to the whole e-cigarettes revolution. Or you're thinking about quitting, here is some basic information about them.
E-cigarettes have been in circulation since 2004. The basic principle of it is inhaling flavoured vapour via an “electronic” cigarette. The great thing about these is that you can get many different flavours. And many people have found it to be a very good method to giving up smoking for good. Since it was introduced in 2004, the use of e-cigarettes over the world has risen incredibly. By 2013 the awareness and use of e-cigarettes were incredibly widespread. There are still tests being carried out as to the health and safety of them. Regardless of this, they are still a widely popular choice with people wanting to give up smoking.
As it is less harmful than cigarettes, there are noted health benefits in comparison to these. Traditional cigarettes pollute the environment. And are harmful to smokers and non-smokers by way of second-hand smoke. Vaping reduces your exposure to tobacco and greatly reduces the amount of smoke being puffed up into the environment. One single cigarette has over 4000 chemicals and also has 400 toxic chemicals, which, of course, are incredibly damaging to human health. In addition to these chemicals, one cigarette contains 43 carcinogenic compounds. Which includes formaldehyde and arsenic. In comparison, vaping reduces and potentially eliminate all of the chemicals.
In addition to the health benefits over cigarattes. It does wonders for hygiene. As smoking exposes people nearby to the smell of tobacco, vaping is scentless. The liquid inside the e-cigarette does not release any smell, and in comparison to cigarettes, it does not make your clothes stink. As well as horrible stains and smells that can linger on your hands, with e-cigarettes and vaporisers, they get rid of this hassle. As well as this, the liquids within the vaporisers are without any colour and won't stain smoker’s fingers or teeth. As well as this, vaping does not involve lighting anything and so it is protected in that manner.
To make the transition from giving up cigarettes to vaping, the liquids have many different flavours to cater for different tastes. So for example, you can use the same flavour of vaping liquids as your favourite cigarette, such as menthol. If you find that you miss the taste of your cigarette, you can purchase tobacco flavoured vaping liquids. The smoker will only taste these scents, as the vapour has no discernible scent apart from the person who is smoking it.
To be technical for a second, the method of smoking an e-cigarette relies on heating the vapour, which is the liquid that contains the nicotine. The user simply inhales from the cartridge to begin the vaporisation process. Or some devices have a switch that starts the vaporiser process. A lot of e-cigarettes are battery-operated or can be charged up by either connecting to a computer via USB. Or it can be charged like a typical mobile phone.
The typical material e-cigarettes and made out of are usually metal or plastic and so it does not have the same feel as a normal cigarette.
A popular brand making the rounds at the moment is Series 7 full portable vape from V2Pro. It is a good brand if you are a beginner. This brand gives you the option to switch the magnetic dropping cartridges. It comes with a charger. And you can vape while it charges. As a beginner vaper, it is a good place to start. And it would make a handy gift for the first time vaper.
However, if you are looking for the next step in vaping and you would like to experience vapour in a whole new way, the IQ by DaVinci is a brand that is taking the e-cigarette further than it has ever been before. The downside to vaping is usually the plastic or metallic taste that can linger in the mouth long after you've had your puff. With the IQ, it is made out of aluminium and endeavours to make the taste the forefront of your vaping experience. When it comes to e-cigarettes, you don't normally have control over the heating level of your vapour. This e-cigarette has functions for you to heat the vapour to your desired level. To further make it an interactive experience, there is an app available for download. And it is connectable by Bluetooth if you wanted to alter the settings further. As far as a portable vaping experience goes, it will take some beating.
With the increase in vaping technology, you need a good device to go with it. Just remember to always read the instructions! Vaping and e-cigarettes very soon will probably overtake traditional cigarettes in every way. As they are more accepted than your typical cigarette, due to its reduced health problems. It is likely that it will only become more accepted. And with the variety of E-Liquids and vape juices on the market. As well as more flavours than ever before, it is a handy companion to have if you are giving up the dreaded cigarette.
So what does the future hold for vaping? With debate still hot around the topic of e-cigarettes and vaping, they won't go away anytime soon. As technology improves so will the devices. Flavours will become closer to the real thing and will help people overcome cigarette addiction.
It is safe to say that vaping will not go away. And with the debates still going on around health implications and cigarette advertising being hung out to dry. There really has never been a better time to join the vaping revolution.
