How Does an E- (Electronic) Cigarette Work?

Okay, so you ask, how does this e-cigarette work? Well, electric cigarettes are a three-part unit comprised of a battery, vaporizer and mouthpiece. The specially designed, rechargeable battery powers the vaporizer which draws a smoke like vapor from a cartridge hidden within the mouthpiece when you take a puff. It’s so cool because it mimics a real cigarette to the T without any of the harmful effects.

The cartridge is full of a special juice which may or may not contain nicotine, depending on your preference. If you’re trying to quit smoking, you can use a cartridge with nicotine to deliver it straight to your blood stream when you inhale, giving you instant relief from cravings.

The vapor (smoke) that comes out of the e-cigarette is harmless to those around you and really has no annoying odor. In fact, to me, it’s a better smoke than a tobacco cigarette. I like that there are no more dirty ashtrays, no seat burns in my car (or on me), and when I’m satisfied with my smoke, I just tuck in my pocket for the next go-round.

I suggest refilling the cartridges yourself when they’re used up—it’s super easy and fast. I also liked the natural smoke juice the best. These things have really saved my life (read my farewell letter to tobacco cigarettes below).

If you're ready to try an e-cigarette, there are numerous reliable companies who sell them. I have listed the logo ads for several of these to the right side of this Blog page, just click on and see if you like what they offer. E-Cigs run about $60 and I strongly recommend you buy at least two to start (have a charged one always available).


  1. I got my own e-cigarette a couple of months ago, and it really as an awesome little device. I am very skeptical of the Smoke Juice found in most electronic cigarettes after the recent FDA findings. They said that the "Chinese Poison" contains the same chemicals found in Antifreeze...scary. Since then, I Started using only American Made Smoke Juice as the quality control is much more advanced here in the States. I have been very happy thus far with Halo brand smoke juice, but there are a couple of others out there too.

  3. There are a lot of crackdown towards e cigarettes lately. They keep saying its bad for the health and carcinogenic. I think they are very much confusing e cigarettes with the real thing. e cigarettes doesn't have any of the harmful effects of real smoke. and its delicious and eco friendly. I really hate those money grubbers gunning down e cigarettes because their tobacco companies are losing money. Grr...

  4. E-Cigarettes are driven by modern microelectronic technology. The actual cigarette body is an integrated structure made up of a cartridge, an atomization chamber, a smart chip controller and built in lithium battery. In the front of the device is an operating mode indicator that lights up when you use it, a bit like a real cigarette. Joye 510

  5. There is a brand new invention that everyone who smokes should know about. It's called the electronic cigarette, also known as a smokeless cigarette or e-cigarette, and it is changing the legal landscape for cigarette smokers around the world.
