What Are Electronic Cigarettes

An electronic cigarette, or e-cig, is an electronic device that  replicates a standard tobacco smoking cigarette by producing a vapour which is inhaled the same way you would a normal cigarette. The electronic cigarette uses heat  to vapourize an e liquid solution into a mist that is inhaled like a regular cigarette. When smoking an electronic cigarette you get the nicotine hit and still perform the hand to mouth action that is so familiar when smoking.

All of our electronic cigarettes are reusable, and come with replaceable and refillable parts and cartridges.

You do not have to be trying to quit smoking in order to switch to an electronic cigarette. The e-cig is an alternative way of smoking, as it attempts to deliver the experience of smoking without the 4000+ toxins can be found in regular cigarettes. Please note that smoking the nicotine vapour from an electronic cigarette is still deemed harmful to the body. Safety concerns have been raised that many people, especially young teenagers,  will think electronic cigarettes are healthy. This is wrong and we would never encourage anybody to smoke at all, but it cannot be denied that if you are a smoker, electronic cigarettes provide an amazing alternative to regular smoking.

It goes without saying but children should never smoke an electronic cigarette.
