Welcome to vaperSpace.
An electronic cigarette is a battery powered device that provides inhaled doses of nicotine or non-nicotine vaporized solution. The vapor is basically the mist used in fog machines, minus the nicotine and the result is something that feels like smoke in the mouth and lungs but without involving any real smoke, tobacco or combustion. The vapor from the electronic cigarette product dissipates quickly, leaving no scent in the air or on clothing. Also, because the smoke is vapor, you get no unwanted chemicals or tar, and a clean delivery of nicotine.
How does it work?
There are two models of the electronic cigarette which is automatic and manual. In an automatic model, the user inhales through the device and the air flow is detected by a sensor, which then activates a heating element that vaporizes a flavored liquid solution stored in the mouthpiece, which may contain nicotine.
On the other hand, with the manual models, the user must press a button to activate the heating element to produce vapor which is then inhaled by the user. However, on both the manual and automatic models, LEDs are found on the opposite end of the device, which is also activated during inhalation and serves as an indicator of use.
The mechanism behind the electronic cigarette:
Electronic cigarettes take many forms but they generally use the same basic components that are a mouthpiece, a heating element, a rechargeable battery, and various electronic circuits.
First, is the mouthpiece which is also known as the cartridge and is a small disposable plastic cup-like piece affixed to the end of the tube. Inside is a smaller plastic cup which holds an absorbent material that is saturated with a flavored liquid solution. The inner cup is designed such that air is able to flow around it and through a hole in the end of the outer piece; this is necessary for the device to provide the ability for suction to move the vapor into the user’s mouth.
Second, is the atomizer which is commonly known as the heating element. This part of the electronic cigarette serves to vaporize the liquid in the mouthpiece so that it can be inhaled. Atomizers have a limited life of about one month on average and are one of the recurring expenses associated with electronic cigarettes.
Thirdly, we have the batteries which are usually a lithium-ion rechargeable battery that is used to power the heating element. Its battery life depends on the battery type, size, frequency of use, and operating environment. The charger types available include; wall outlet, car, and USB chargers. The battery is normally the largest component of an electronic cigarette.
In addition, some electronic cigarettes have electronic circuits that have a timed cutoff switch to prevent overheating and a colored LED to signal activation of the device. In summary, the electronic cigarette product is revolutionary in that it has brought change in the cigarette manufacturing business setting it apart from the conventional type of cigarettes.
The most recent study about the E cigs published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine shows very promising results. According to that research, the device is extremely good choice when it comes to quit smoking, even more effective than the well-known NRT – the traditional nicotine replacements patch. The survey was taken by 222 people who purchased the devise for the first time and shows how it affected them in a period of six months. In comparison with the users of the nicotine patches, who in a period of six months had abstinence rate in between 18% a 12%, people who used the electronic cigarettes quit smoking at 31% rate. Researches therefore came to the conclusion that this devise was a very promising tool for smoking cessation.
To support their theory they published some statistics from the research –
1) 34.3% of the 31% people who actually quit smoking in this period stopped using the electronic cigarettes altogether.
2) 48.8% of the participants stopped the cigarettes for a period of time after using the electronic ones.
3) 66.8% of the people stated that they have significantly reduced the number of the real cigarettes after using this device.
4) Users of the electronic cigarettes who used them more than 20 times daily had 70% abstinence rate for smoking.
The survey was internet based and the rate of response was about 405%. According to the analysis of the well known anti-smoking organizations say this low rate of response due to the reason that only people who quit smoking participate in it.
But the researchers believe that this is the best proof of the success of the E cigs.
Another amazing fact about the device, this is never discussed before it but it fetches the attention of the researchers that this device satisfies the nicotine hunger as well as satisfies the smoking addictions. So the device makes more effective instead of the customary way of nicotine substitution treatment as it also affect the addiction habits of the person.
The electronic tool seems to make individuals reduce the amount of cigarettes they smoke or make them for some time stops smoking is another important fact. This reason only has a marvellous significance for their health as we all know how injurious the effects of smoking are, and of course the second hand smoking is also being decrease the device significantly helps for reduction the public health. According to the result of the experiment securely consider that the thought of the e cigs should be fabulous and promoted in order to become even more popular to the public and thus help in decrease the quantity of cigarettes or stop smoking in total.

Thumbs up for the initiative and for those who post here, hope to find all the info I need to have a great vaping “experience”:D
