What is an electronic cigarette and how it works?
The Electronic Cigarette is a device comprising: a battery, an atomizer and a drip tip. The atomizer contains a liquid called e-liquid. Its main ingredients are nicotine (optional), scents, Vegetal glycerin and propylene glycol. When the user inhales, a microprocessor activates the atomizer that mixes the e-liquid with the inspired air, creating vapor at a temperature of 50 - 60 ° C, comparable to a conventional cigarette. Subsequent evaporation of glycerol creates the impression of real smoke.
In summary, the electronic cigarette uses a highly sensitive microelectronic atomization technology to simulate the act of smoking without suffering the damage of traditional cigarettes.
Are they healthier than traditional cigarettes?
The Electronic Cigarette is essentially different from regular cigarettes because:
- Contains no snuff, tar, ammonia and cyanides (Regular cigarettes contains more than 4,000 toxic substances)
- No combustion at all. Only vegetable glycerine or propylene glycol vapor (substances approved for human use). Therefore there is no generation of carbon monoxide.
- Does not produce ash or odors.
- Does not change the color of teeth.
In addition, the electronic cigarette snuff replaces both the physical and psychological aspects of smoking:
- Lung disease of smokers (active and passive) are caused by smoke from the burning cigarette snuff and tars and toxins derived from it, not the nicotine, which is sold freely in pharmacies (gum, candies, patches, etc).
- The steam expelled DOES NOT contain tar or carbon monoxide.
The experience of using the electronic cigarette is very similar to smoking a traditional cigarette but without ingesting carcinogenic snuff smoke toxins, producing the sensation of inhaling smoke through steam generation.

- Atomizers: 1 to 12 months
- Batteries: between 6 and 12 months
