Here are five things you need to know about vaping before you use e-cigarettes.
If you’re using e-cigarettes, you don’t need a lighter because they use a battery to generate heat. This device comprises a vaporizer and cartridge that stores the liquid. When you puff on the e-cigarette, the battery switches on the heater, heating the liquid and creating vapour. Some models of e-cigs have an LED tip that glows red. Although e-cigarettes may resemble traditional cigarettes, vaping devices don’t burn tobacco. This means that there’s no smoke, no smell, and what you inhale is pure vapour.
2.E-cigarettes Contain Liquid Nicotine
Although e-cigarettes do not burn tobacco leaves, they aren’t nicotine free. The liquid solution inside the device is a mixture of chemicals. It includes nicotine, flavorings (fruit flavors, juices, candies and even coffee flavor), propylene glycol (solvent) and other chemicals. The dosage of nicotine depends on the mixture of the particular liquid inside the nicotine cartridge. There are some e-cigs that contain the same amounts found in traditional cigarettes. Meanwhile, some may contain smaller levels of nicotine similar to light or ultra light cigarette. For those users who just want to experience smoking without harmful effects, choose a liquid solution without nicotine. We recommend Sikary’s new disposable S600, which is available in a 20mg nicotine version and is perfect for beginners to try.
3.E-cigarettes are toxic
Smoking cigarettes are more harmful because it contains more than 7,000 chemicals, and 69 of them are carcinogens. However, did you know that e-cigarettes are also harmful to our bodies due to the liquid nicotine? In fact, there are also some e-cigarettes models that may release metals while in use like tin. In some cases, you might find others toxins and carcinogens.
4.E-cigarettes are Reusable
If your E-cigarette battery is fully charged, you can use the device as per its type and model. The majority of E-cigarettes are equipped with either a USB or car charger. You can fill some other models by either putting in a new cartridge or re-filling an empty one.
5.E-cigarettes Produce Second-hand Vapor
Incidentally, E-cigarettes may produce secondhand vapor. Nicotine is also present among e-cigarettes because of the liquid nicotine mixed with other flavorings and chemicals used for vaping. Although it has a nicotine content, they consider e-cigarette less exposure to nicotine because it doesn’t burn tobacco. Secondhand aerosol doesn’t have a significant amount of tobacco toxins (carbon monoxide), but it can affect the lungs.
