Electronic cigarettes are also called e-cigarettes, vapor cigarettes, vape mods, and e-cigs. They first entered the United States in 2007. Vape mods gained immediate popularity due to their smoke and tobacco-less properties, while still maintaining the ability to provide nicotine, if the smoker chooses. Another huge distinction between electronic cigarette mods and regular cigarettes is that electronic vape mods are reusable.
The parts of electronic cigarettes include an atomizer, a cartridge and a battery. An atomizer is the heating element that heats up the liquid. The cartridge holds the liquid, and the battery is what powers the atomizer. X-Treme Smoke and Vapor carries Sigelei, Kanger, Wismec, and Atmos Vaporizers along with a variety of starter kits, replacement parts, liquid and other items you need to enhance your e-cig smoking experience.
Here is how e-cigarettes work: When a smoker puffs on the mouthpiece, the action triggers the atomizer to heat up the liquid and cause a vapor. If the e-cig is manual, then a button needs to be pressed to activate the heating device to cause the vapor. The vapor is then inhaled as a normal cigarette or cigar would be, only without the smoke.
The “liquid” is available with both nicotine and nicotine-free options, and it comes in a wide variety of brands and flavors. There are multiple strengths, ranging from something similar to an ultralight or mild strength, to a bold. The flavors available for e-liquid are endless, so make sure to read reviews and sample a few before you make a purchase.
When you are shopping for a battery, the two main factors you will need to consider are longevity and the size. While a smaller style battery will closely resemble a traditional cigarette, it will not be able to hold a charge for as long. To avoid the inconvenience of charging a battery throughout the day, we definitely recommend a larger size battery.
For a more simplistic approach, check out the Kanger ProTank 2 mods! These clearomizers combine an atomizer and cartridge, and this includes a glass tank. This feature allows the user to see where the liquid levels are.
As mentioned before, most e-cigs are tobacco-less, and therefore have gathered the attention of people who are trying to quit smoking. Another big draw is the savings. Many smokers are looking for other, more affordable, methods of smoking as opposed to traditional cigarettes due to the cost. This is where electronic cigarettes or roll your own tobacco are perfect alternatives.
