Personal Vaporizers or Vape is synonymous with E-Cigarettes. This device is an alternative to the traditional tobacco cigarettes that have been around for quite a long time. E-cigarettes contain propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin and the additive food coloring. Depending on the preferences of the user, it can also contain either no nicotine, low dose and high amounts of nicotine. The device itself was first introduced in 2003 by a Chinese named Hon Lik but was only allowed in the US market since 2006. Ever since, Vaping has become an ever popular recreation for especially to younger users and those switching from regular tobacco smoke. The E-cigarette industry has greatly expanded ever since the its early beginnings and now there are a multitude of companies and businesses selling component parts and e-juices. There are now a massive array of vaporizers that one can choose from. There are a lot of modifiable or mod cigarettes available as well which are great for more experienced users. Even though there are a lot of selection of E-cigarettes one can acquire, there is still the commonality with how these devices operate. These devices still require an energy source most often a lithium ion battery as well as a wire coil that will heat up and create the vapor. A wick is used to draw the e-liquid into the coil. The E-cigarettes components should also be important thing the user to be aware of.
The most crucial part of the device is always the battery. it supplies the power for the device. Some E-cigarettes do not allow replacement of the internal battery but there are others that do. Most of the time, battery replacements are only reserved for those that are already comfortable with the device. Another compnent that the user should be familiar with are the coils. It is the part of the device that generates the inhalable vapor. Resistance determines the vaporizers electricity consumption. Kanthal and Nichrome are the ones that make up the coils and these have been proven to be safe for humans. The “juice” as it is more commonly called is composed of vegetable glycerin, food coloring, propylene glycol and can be or without nicotine.
These liquids can vary in their PG/VG ratio and nicotine amount.
Higher amount of nicotine juices are usually used by those who are switching from tobacco.
Overtime, they may decrease the content they use while vaping. Typically, heavy smokers take about 24mg/ml and then switch to more lower dosages. However, it is not recommended to take nicotine with strength above 18mg/ml.
Low output regulated devices with integrated internal batteries are often more suited for beginners. Complex builds are often more suited for those who are already familiar with vaping.
