How do e-cigs work?

How do e-cigs work?

Instead of producing smoke like cigarettes do, e-cigarettes create vapour when you use them. A vaping device consists of many different components, such as a mouthpiece - part of the cartridge, a battery and in many cases an atomizer which includes a coil. So, to operate it, the process is as follows: the battery powers the atomizer, which in turn heats the e-liquid, which in the end produces flavour and vapour.

E-cigarettes can provide an alternative experience for adult smokers switching from cigarettes. There are different types of vaping devices, and each works in a slightly unique way. So, if you understand the differences between the devices, you will be able to easily leave cigarettes behind and switch to vaping.

How different types of vapes work

There are two main categories of e-cigarettes that we will focus on - the disposable and the non-disposable or rechargeable ones.

Disposable vaping devices are not designed to last long. In a disposable vape typically you do not need to replace a component, such as the battery. However, the downside is that you must throw away the device as soon as its battery runs out or the e-liquid has been consumed.

Rechargeable or non-disposable e-cigarettes are an alternative option for adult smokers who want a device that lasts longer than a disposable one. Rechargeable vapes are divided into the following categories:

  1. Mods: Generally, the biggest type of vape. There is plenty of variation made possible by mods, but these devices are often complicated to use and to maintain, especially by adult users who have just now started vaping and have limited experience.
  2. Vape pens: These particular devices look like a pen, hence their name. They are a common form of e-cigarette, smaller than mods, and typically more easier to use.
  3. Pod systems: These typically consist of two components; a pod, pre-filled with e-liquid, and a battery. In order to vape, simply connect the two parts with minimal effort.

The IQOS option for an e-cigarette

In recent years, huge steps have been made in the development of smoke-free alternatives. One thing is for sure, you will find very sophisticated vaping devices on the market, compared to a few years ago, when options were more limited.

For you, IQOS has to offer the IQOS VEEV. IQOS VEEV is a pod system that thanks to smart heating technology MESHTM that leverages, it prevents overheating and the taste of burnt, delivering a consistent taste every time. In order to function, it requires its own prefilled VEEV pods, which come in a variety of flavours, from tobacco to fruity ones, offering various options depending on the vaping experience you are looking for.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Smoking alternatives are not risk free. They deliver nicotine, which is addictive. They are intended for use by adults who would otherwise continue to smoke or use nicotine products and are by no means a cessation method.
The best option to reduce the health risks associated with the use of tobacco and nicotine products is to quit their use altogether. However, for those adults who would otherwise continue to smoke, switching completely to vaping or heated tobacco products could be a better choice than continuing to smoke.
