Electronic Cigarettes (E-Cigs)
Most E-Cigs are made up of three parts; a battery, an atomizer and a cartridge to hold the e-juice. When looking for an e-cig you want to consider how long you want your battery to last by asking yourself some questions:
Do you have a charging source with you at all times; usb port, plug, or cigarette lighter?
How often am I going to use it?
If you don't have a power source and will use it often you are going to want to choose an e-cigarette with a bigger battery. The e-cigs that look similar to a cigarette have small batteries and need to be re-charged more regularly. I have found they are said to last an hour or more but I found mine to only last 20-45 minutes of actual use (this doesn't count the time that you are not "puffing" on it).
How often you use it is very individual but I have found that once your taste buds return use is pleasant and therefore can be heavy especially in the beginning as it is different from a traditional cigarette and you seem to feel the need to use it often.
Other than the battery size, in my opinion, you can't go wrong with your choice of e-cigarette. These are not a disposable e-cig thay will last for a long time
How e-cigarettes are different than traditional cigarettes
E-cigarettes produce a vapor which is not water and not smoke. The best way I can think to describe it is that it is like what comes out of a fog machine. It has no unpleasant smell and most people claim they cannot smell the vapor at all. It will not smell up your house, your hair, your clothes or your car. As a smoker, that was one of the worst things about smoking as I am sure you would agree. Also, there is no tar and none of the effects of combustion that is present in traditional cigarettes.
E-juice or e-liquid, nic juice, etc. is the liquid which contains nicotine that you use in your electronic cigarette. The basic ingredients include; propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), nicotine and flavoring. There are other ingredients in individual recipes, usually in very small amounts but the ingredients above are basically in all e-juice that contains nicotine. However, this brings us to the discussion regarding PG. If you look at the ingredients listed on most common items in your kitchen you will find propylene glycol listed. This is an ingredient we have been ingesting for a long time with no effects. However, when people started inhaling PG they found they had some sensitivity with it. If you are one of those people, you can request a VG based product. Luckily, in most cases, the effects of PG sensitivity have been merely bothersome such as a sore throat, dryness, upset stomach.

I do hope either you have or you will make the decision to try e-cigarettes and when you do, you will try our e-juice and become part of the vaping family.
