Looking for the best electronic cigarette to purchase? Having trouble telling the difference between different electronic cigarette brands? The components of various brands of e-cigarettes are basically the same. The mouthpiece contains a replaceable cartridge filled with a nicotine, water, propylene glycol solution and optional flavors or aromas.
A sensor detects the airflow created by inhaling through the e-cigarette.
The sensor activates an atomizer which pulls droplets of the liquid into the flowing air and vaporizes the nicotine. Propylene glycol which is odorless and harmless makes the vapor look like smoke. The body of the e-cigarette contains a rechargeable lithium battery and a microprocessor which activates a colored LED at the tip to simulate real smoking. Though electronic cigarettes may look very similar, there are many brands to choose from – So here are a few tips to bear in mind when you begin shopping.
If appearance is an important feature and you want to stick with the traditional look you need not worry. Most manufacturers design their electronic cigarettes to closely resemble a regular tobacco cigarette. The tip even glows red when you inhale. You’re not limited to this style however since some manufacturers have created exotic designs to appeal to the more stylish and fashion conscience among us. They may even offer a choice of LED tips so that when you inhale your e-cigarette tip will glow green or blue. E-cigars and pipes are also available now.
The volume of nicotine vapor inhaled will no doubt matter a great deal to some long time smokers. That’s where the atomizer comes into play. This is what vaporizes the nicotine solution. In some brands of e-cigarette the atomizer, if not cleaned regularly and properly, can become clogged and reduce the amount of vapor available to inhale. There is a two piece model on the market that has the atomizer and cartridge combined into one unit. With this you are getting a fresh atomizer each time you change cartridges which can eliminate the problem of clogging.
