Technology has brought about a sea of changes in people's way of living, and several devices have fitted into our routine quite well. The latest in the list is a Vaporizer pen, or Vape pen also called the e-cigarette, which is projected as an alternative to smoking cigarettes. This is a small device that is about the size of a standard pen to a large cigar that can hold certain ingredients, predominantly propylene glycol and glycerin mixed with nicotine, among others. The heated ingredients are inhaled by the user that can give the same feeling as a traditional cigarette.
Vaping is the act of inhaling the vapors from a vape pen or a vaporizer, also known as electronic cigarettes. These contain an atomizer, a liquid cartridge, which is used to produce the vapor and a battery to charge the atomizer. Upon smoking, the atomizer heats the cartridge, which in turn becomes aerosol. These come in different flavors that range from bubble gum to watermelon. There are several e-Cigarettes available in the market, among which the vape pens have been popular for a while since their launch in the year 2008.
There are vape pens available to be used with e-liquid. While the first-ever-vape-pens were not quite small, now, the size of vape pens have incredibly gotten small, and you can find ultra-compact pens available on the market. They are portable, easy to use, and are affordable. There are pod-size pens available too. The vape pens can be refilled with e-liquid. The percentage of nicotine in the e-liquid varies, and the user can choose based on his/her preference. There are special vape pens that use dry herbs and wax that is filled in the atomizer and the vapor produced are said to have medicinal effects. Some vape pens have various heat settings as well with which the amount of vapor produced can be controlled.
In the last five years, a variety of vaporizers have made its appearance in the market. The e-cigarette comes in various shapes and sizes. Some look exactly like normal cigarettes, while some resemble cigars. Some other types are the ego style ones. These are technologically more advanced with better battery or power. Also, there is a risk of explosion of batteries; thus, a tested and reliable brand is something to keep in mind. Vapes are also differentiated by the amount of nicotine held in the vaporizer and the flavor of the e-liquid. The e-liquid comes in the traditional tobacco flavor as well as different fruit flavors. There are vape pens that use herbal liquid, and such pens are used in therapies.
Though the vaping pens and e-Cigarettes do not produce tobacco smoke, they do produce vapors that contain nicotine. Although it is an alternative to smoking, it has its own risks. Make an informed decision before giving them a try.
