The electronic cigarette or "e-cigarette" was first commercialized in 2003. Although the identity of its inventor was unknown until now, some believed it was the Chinese engineer Hon Lik. Others think that it was the American Herbert A. Gilbert who first succeeded in making a smokeless cigarette that recalls the operating principle of the e-cigarette that we find today. Everything you need to know about electronic cigarettes! The e-cigarette is very popular today. It is a substitute for tobacco cigarettes. Some call it "vaping". Its operating principle, although simple, is quite effective in delivering the necessary dose of nicotine and thus avoiding the appearance of symptoms of smoking cessation. Unlike tobacco cigarettes, e-cigarettes produce water vapor, not smoke. It is immeasurably less dangerous than cigarettes. Indeed, it does not produce toxic and carcinogenic substances since there is no combustion reaction. Numerous studies have proven that tobacco smoke contains more than 4,000 chemicals, of which more than 90 are toxic and more than 40 are carcinogenic. The e-cigarette is now one of the best ways to substitute tobacco. It is available in an infinite number of models and brands. It is possible to enjoy it with or without nicotine. How to choose the right e-cigarette? Choose according to your smoking profile. Have you finally made the decision to quit smoking? Cheer ! It's a good time to invest in an electronic cigarette! To make the right choice, it is necessary to take into account your smoking profile. Indeed, if you smoke less than 10 cigarettes a day, you are considered a "light smoker". You are a moderate smoker if you smoke between 10 and 20 cigarettes a day and a heavy smoker if you consume more than one pack a day. If you smoke occasionally, we advise you to opt for a simple e-cigarette with little adjustment (pods, AIO (for all in one), tubes). Are you a moderate smoker? In this case, you will need a high-performance e-cigarette that allows you to compensate for the lack of nicotine all day long (good autonomy). You can choose a box or tube type e-cigarette. Do you smoke more than a pack of cigarettes a day? We advise you to opt for a quality box. Choose according to your vaping profile A wide range of electronic cigarettes is available on the market. Some models are for beginners, others for experts. If you want to get rid of tobacco cigarettes for good, you can start with two types of electronic cigarettes: pods and Aio (all in one). These e-cigarettes are very easy to use and maintain, offer good performance and are affordable for all budgets. Want to upgrade to more sophisticated models? Electronic cigarettes for intermediate vapers come in many shapes and sizes. These e-cigarettes all have in common that they consist of two parts: the atomizer and the mod (power supply or rechargeable battery). Some models are compatible with each other. You can, for example, attach the atomizer of one e-cigarette to another. These e-cigarettes work with disposable resistors and on sale in vape-shops (clearomizer) or with reconstructable resistors (you can create one yourself with cotton and resistive wire). When it comes to e-cigarettes aimed at experts, they perform much better than those aimed at beginners. They are powerful thanks to very large capacity batteries and require in-depth knowledge to achieve the correct adjustment. They offer experts, who are looking for pleasure in the vape, high powers and excellent autonomy. Choose by brand The choice of an electronic cigarette depends on both its technical characteristics and its brand. Several brands of e-cigarettes exist. Among which, we can mention: Vaporesso, Aspire, Justfog, Geekvape, Innokin, Joyetech, Dotmod, eleaf etc… Choose according to the clearomizer / atomizer The clearomiser is the part in which the vapor that you inhale is produced. There are two ways to inhale this vapour: Direct Inhaling (or DL for "Direct Lung") and Indirect Inhaling (or MTL for "Mouth to Lung"). The choice depends on individual preferences. However, it has been proven that new vapers (ex-smokers) prefer indirect inhaling which reminds them of the hit of the classic cigarette. Thus indirect inhalation e-cigarettes allow you to have the sensations of smoking and therefore to get used to it, more easily.
