How Do They Work?

Although we ve reviewed the leading products available and there are naturally differences between each of the patents electronic cigarettes rely on some common features for satisfying the craving that smokers enjoy.

True to the name, of course, smokeless cigarettes are just that there s no smoke because there s no fire, nothing burning

Instead, the simple act of inhaling or drawing on them triggers what is commonly called a flow sensor . Thanks to the small battery pack, it is this flow sensor that triggers the release of a water vapor containing the active ingredients

Nicotine (or a simulated nicotine flavor to achieve nicotine free smoking)
Propylene glycol a harmless and odorless, vaporize able base for diluting the nicotine liquid (or flavoring) and A scent for simulating the smell of tobacco.

This list of ingredients helps to explain the simplicity of providing a nicotine fix by an alternative method of delivery to actually burning the tobacco or for simulating the taste and favor of smoking a nicotine free cigarette. Yet because these are all smokeless they are free of the smoke borne carcinogens that damage your own health and those around you. They, therefore, can be smoked in places where the conventional ones are banned like the workplace or office, restaurants, airplanes, parks or the beach.

The brands we ve reviewed here are all remarkably realistic in appearance that is to say, they all look, feel and handle just like a real , conventional cigarette.

It s an important consideration, since the look and feel of a cigarette the way it feels between the lips and fingers of the smoker, together with its appearance to those around you, is all part of the smoking experience or ritual .

Smoke volume one of the keys to the authenticity of e cigarettes is the volume of vapor exhaled by the smoker.
