By just listening to new users, it becomes obvious that the umbrella term ‘e-cigarette‘ is misleading.
Too many customers are eventually denying themselves the options they have away from ordinary cigarettes.
E-cigarettes in Brief
To get an idea of the genesis of this confusion it is imperative to get an idea on what e-cigarettes encompass.
The FDA defines an e-cigarette as any device that turns nicotine, flavorings, or other solutions into vapor which you can then inhale.
The design is much the same as that of an ordinary cigarette but that is where similarities end.
Inside the e-cig there is a system consisting of a rechargeable lithium battery, a cartridge where the nicotine solution mostly propylene glycol is placed and a heater which vaporizes the solution to be inhaled.
The inhaling action by the user activates the battery and this heats the smoking juice which is converted to vapor.
This is the vapor a user will draw in and then out but it is odorless because no nicotine is burnt. This system is what is generalized as the e-cigarette in the public debates.
Upgrading to a Vape Pen
The vape pen is a next-generation e-cigarette because it offers all the benefits of the e-cig but improves on the drawbacks.
As the name suggests the vape pen imitates the design of a fountain pen and is thus discreet option for those who do not want to scream they are smoking.
The other major difference comes in the system they heat the vapor.
While the standard e-cig creates vapor by breaking down the propylene glycol solution through battery power vape pens do this gradually using warm air. This air passes through the materials in a set temperature to vaporize the ingredients and release them into the air.
While the difference between a standard e-cigarette and a vape pen might look minimal the benefits of switching are immense.
