What is vaping?

Vaping is the inhalation and exhalation of vapour when using an electronic cigarette / vaporiser. It is the evolution of smoking, replacing many negative associations with the old habit of tobacco combustion. The technical term for vapour is called liquid aerosol, it can be compared to how a kettle heats up liquid like water and produces a steam vapour.

Vaping works when the e-liquid is heated creating a vapour that is then inhaled and exhaled. E-Liquids come in many different strengths of nicotine and even come in nicotine free. Vaping is seen as a healthier alternative to smoking.


How do electronic cigarettes work?

There are 3 main components to a vaping device:

  • 1. Battery
  • 2. Clearomizer or tank (the thing that holds the e-liquid). Usually a plastic or glass vial with a wick inside and a coil of resistance wire that heats up.
  • 3. The e-liquid

The battery sends a current through the coil of resistance wire (inside the clearomizer) which has been wrapped around a wick or cotton which is gently heated to evaporate and turn the saturated e-liquid to vapour.

Who is vaping designed for?

Will vaping help me to quit smoking? Can I use vaping products alongside traditional tobacco products?

Vaping has made us and countless others stop smoking. There is no guarantee it will work for you, though millions of users and rising can’t be wrong! You can of course use tobacco alongside e-cigarettes, there are no rules. But we tend to find that if you are still craving tobacco, then the e-liquid you are using has too low a nicotine percentage for you, or the device is inferior or the liquid is inferior.

Does vaping taste the same as smoking tobacco?

There are an infinite number of flavors available so you can replicate a tobacco flavor if you want. Quality vape gear can easily replicate smoking from the throat hit, flavor and head rush from the nicotine. If your device does not do this then – you may have the wrong strength nicotine or the device is no good or the liquid is no good.


Do e-cigarettes and e-liquids produce a smell?

Some do, some don’t – some have a pleasant smell that resembles the taste of the e-liquid. Some have no smell at all.


How often can I vape? Can I use vaping products as often as I would if I was smoking?

As often as you like – there are no rules. Generally your body will tell you when its had enough nicotine as you will naturally stop craving it.


Does the battery in the device make the e-cig too hot to hold?
