Flavored E Cigarettes
The electronic cigarette came into the market in 2003 from China. It has over the last few years become an entrenched alternative to the tobacco cigarette.
The electronic cigarette uses no flame or ember; it instead uses a LED based battery to active an atomizer. The atomizer uses a nicotine concentrate, which is made up of nicotine in concentration, flavoring and a glycol additive to help the atomization process. Most electronic cigarettes are either a two-piece or three-piece design. In the three-piece design it includes the battery, atomizer and cartridge. In the two-piece version, the cartridge and atomizer are combined into a cartomizer.
The electric cigarette has become a community of users, and a sub culture of vaping, the electric cigarette version of smoking. Since no smoke is produced only vapor, the vaping term emerged. The e-cigarette has been seen in movies and in paparazzi photos of celebrity.
Since there are no existing bans against electric cigarettes in the US and UK, although some areas are considering adding electronic cigarettes bans; vaping can take place in most of the places that cigarettes have been banned or restricted.
The electric cigarette industry has exploded in the last few years. The $10 million a year industry, but is projected to go to $100 million by the end of 2011.
The addition of flavoring has added to the popularity of electric cigarettes. Most new e-cigarette users start with flavors that mimic the taste and sensation of tobacco cigarettes, and there are flavors offered with the taste of popular brands of tobacco cigarettes. Over time they are likely to experiment with other flavors. Many manufacturers are adding new flavors all the time.
Popular flavors include ginger and mint, vanilla and coffee flavors. There are herbal flavors, and food as well as beverage based flavors. One of the concerns of critics of electric cigarettes is the use of flavors that appeal to teens and young children such as cotton candy and waffles. The use of electronic cigarettes is illegal for minors and requires the user to be over 18.
There are alcohol inspired flavors such as whisky, beer and brandy flavors. There are fruit inspired flavors like strawberry or cranberry. Since the electronic cigarette emerged first in China, they also offer a range of Chinese flavors as well.
Premium E Cigarettes offers variety packs of flavor options, often with beginner or more advanced selections. Beginning flavors can include tobacco, menthol, coffee and vanilla flavors.
There are benefits to the use of electric cigarettes including the delivery of nicotine without the harmful effects of tobacco. The ability to use e-cigs in areas that are banned from the use of tobacco cigarettes and the lack of second hand smoke, make the electronic cigarette popular with those looking for alternatives.
The styles, designs and flavors allow the user to customize the process. Since most of the pieces used in electric cigarettes are interchangeable, the user can experiment with the style or design until they find one that suits.
