An e-cigar is a handheld device that is powered by a rechargeable battery. It is designed to vaporize flavoured liquids such as nicotine solutions that are inhaled by vapers in a bid to quench their nicotine cravings. Unlike tobacco cigars, electronic cigar vapour does not contain tar, carbon monoxide, tobacco and other harmful chemical associated with smoking. Moreover, e-cigars do not emit smoke or flames.
An e-cigar consists of three key components;
A Battery: the battery must be Lithium-ion but can either be rechargeable or disposable.
An Atomizer: a coil of wires that heats up when the battery is powered. It is surrounded by an e-liquid reservoir or tank.
E-liquid: a mixture of nicotine, food flavours, vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol that vaporizes to assimilate the smoking effect.
How E-cigar Works
An e-cigar relies on microelectronic current technology, a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery, and a replaceable cartridge to offer the much sort after nicotine effect. You start by attaching the cartridge with e-liquid to the microelectronic chamber before starting your vaping device. Once you activate your e-cigar, the nicotine liquid is heated and converted to vapour that contains nicotine. The cartridge’s tip acts like the e-cigars mouthpiece. You should inhale the vapour like the regular cigarette.
Vapour inhalation triggers the atomizer to heat the e-liquid stored in a replaceable cartridge and convert it to vapour. The vapour is inhaled via the mouthpiece, it circulates in the lungs and you exhale a vapour that smells better and dissipates faster but resembles traditional cigarette smoke. The vaping action offers the psychological effect that is highly sort after by regular smokers without causing harmful side effects.
An electronic cigar can be automatic or manual. Therefore, the best e-cigar is determined by your taste and device operation preferences. Automatic e-cigars have inbuilt sensor chips that detect airflow when inhalation occurs. Upon detection, the chip triggers the battery to power the atomizer that in turn vaporizes the e-liquid. On the other hand, manual e-cigars have a button connected to the battery. The user presses the button to activate the atomizer each time they want to puff.
