The device decoded
The e-cigarette is easy to use, provided you know the various components that make up the device. Divided into three parts, the first is the mouth piece which has the cartridge attached to the tube. A small cup which holds the liquid solution and the absorbing material is found inside the mouthpiece and can be refilled or replaced upon need. The second component to this device is the atomizer which heats the liquid so that it can be inhaled by the user. The liquid holding capacity of the atomizer varies from 1.4ml to 4ml and this component needs to be replaced once every 3to 6 months. The battery which is a lithium-ion variety completes the kit along with other electronic components. The battery powers the heating action and its lifespan depends upon the usage of the same, its size, type and operating environment. Latest models in the market come with an inbuilt sensor that automatically activates the heating procedure as soon as one starts to ‘take a puff.’ The liquid solution comes in flavours like vanilla, mint, and apple, Marlboro, composed of glycol or vegetable glycerine. The nicotine concentration in this e- cigarette varies from zero to extra-high (24-36 mg/ml).
