All About Vaping
Vaping industry has seen massive growth for the past 3 years or so. And according to experts, the electronic cigarettes industry has boomed from being a 1.7 billion dollar to 3.5 billion dollars from the period of 2013 to 2015. And by the end of 2016, it is even expected to hit 5 billion dollar mark.
Even though there's exponential growth as well as thousands of people who are switching to vaping, there still lots of other people who don't have much clue about it. Many vapers got the same question of where or how it started from parties, social media, gatherings, emails, texts and what not. At times, its close cousins accompany it as well: what's a vaporizer, is vaping safe, is it safer compared to smoking cigars and so forth.
Vaping e cigarette is simply the act of inhaling and exhaling water vapor that's produced by an electric device referred to as a vaporizer or an e-cigarette. If you are wondering what's vapor or water vapor, it is the e-liquid in gaseous form that's inhaled and then exhaled by vapors. Normally, it looks thicker than smoke however, it dissipates faster in the air and smells better typically like mint, candy, fruit or whatever flavoring is used.
The beauty about vaping is the fact that it's tobacco free and in some instances, nicotine free too. version of traditional tobacco cigars but we do not use the term smoking here since there's no smoke. But just for a better understanding especially for people who do not have enough knowledge on what vaping is, we can say that it is smoking but without tobacco, virtually all side effects as well as health risks, the obnoxious smell as well as the smoke. Rather than a pack of cigar, you are only using an electronic device which is mostly rechargeable and refillable.
A vaporizer or vape has a battery, cartridge, mouthpiece, cartomizer or atomizer as well as circuitry with sensor. Cartomizer is the modern replacement for atomizer which combines an atomizer and cartridge in one unit. The cartridge has an e-juice or e-liquid while atomizers have heating element that's normally a thin metallic coil that's heated by the generated power by the battery.
When someone takes a drag on the electronic cigarette's mouthpiece, the battery is heating up the coil, a cotton wick absorbs e-liquid from cartridge and when it comes contact with the coil, which is hotter compared to the boiling point of e-liquid, it normally turns into vapor. The vapor is inhaled by the user which then reaches into his or her lungs and then exhaled.
