How to Choose an Electronic Cigarette

Before buying an electronic cigarette, you should at least have an idea of what you're looking for. Of course, if you have no experience with e-cigarettes, that's easier said than done.

How Electronic Cigarettes Work – A Primer

E-cigarettes all work in basically the same way, whether they're cheap disposables, "cartridge" units which resemble a tobacco cigarette, or more complicated tank/EGO systems or personal vaporizers (PV).

E-Cigarette and E-Liquid Ingredients

The safety of electronic cigarettes is still an open question, since no rigorous and conclusive scientific studies have been done on their long-term use. That leaves people to make their own decisions, at least for now. And the only way to think intuitively about the safety of e-cigarettes is to look at what's in them - and more specifically, what's in e-liquid, which is used to create the vapor that's inhaled. What's In E-Liquid The primary ingredient in the production of...
