What is An Electronic Cigarette?
E-cigarettes look like traditional cigarettes but contain a cartridge / atomizer filled with E-liquid, and a battery with an LED indicator light which activates the cartridge and creates a vapor. Smokers can use e-cigs to simulate the act of smoking without inhaling all the harmful chemicals of a tobacco cigarette. When you inhale an e-cigarette, the vaporizer converts a nicotine-containing (or non-nicotine) solution into a vapor mist. The smoker then inhales this vapor. When the cartridge becomes empty, you can purchase new refill cartridges.
Cartridges can either be refilled with your choice of flavored “e-juice liquid” with or without nicotine. Or, if you prefer, you can purchase prefilled, disposable cartridges. We have 16 signature e-cig cartridge flavors available without nicotine and with nicotine in four nicotine levels: Bold 24mg-(2.4%) Full 18mg-(1.8%), Medium 12mg-(1.2%), Light 6mg-(0.6%), and Zero 0%.
The e-cigarette itself is re-useable and comes with a charging unit. Or, you can charge the e-cig on your computer through a USB port.
History of E-Cigarettes
A 1963 patent by Herbert A. Gill developed the concept of the smokeless cigarette described as ”…a smokeless non-tobacco cigarette … to provide a safe and harmless means for and method of smoking by replacing burning tobacco and paper with heated, moist, flavored air…” Gill had the right idea, but his invention didn’t create a “vapor” that simulates the smoke from a tobacco cigarette. Although Gill had the original patent for a smokeless cigarette, his product was never manufactured.
In 2003, Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik built upon Gill’s idea for a smokeless cigarette, but made it better by creating a “vapor” that looks like smoke and therefore simulates the common experience of smoking tobacco cigarettes. The company Lik worked for, Golden Dragon Holdings, developed the device and changed their name to Ruyan, which means "like smoke." In 2007, his company was granted an international patent. Since then, the popularity of electronic cigarettes has continued to increase year by year as more people become aware of all the many benefits of the e-cigarette.
Benefits of E-Cigarettes
E-cigarettes do not burn tobacco, so a smoker is not ingesting the harmful chemicals found in a regular cigarette. Many people are discovering they prefer e-cigarettes:
· No bad breathe
· No stained teeth and hands
· No tar or other toxins found in tobacco cigarettes

· No cigarette butts
E-Cigs are becoming a popular alternative to normal tobacco cigarettes. Enjoy smoking an electronic cigarette without the stinky smell or toxic smoke of a tobacco cigarette.
