What You Need To Know About E-Cigarettes

Compared to traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes do not need matches because they are powered by a rechargeable battery. Anyone smoking this type of cigarette may seem to smoke a regular cigarette filled with tobacco, however, e-cigarettes use liquid nicotine for vaporization, which will then be passed on to the smoker.

It was Herbert Gilbert who patented a type of smokeless non-tobacco cigarette in 1963. Despite its commercial failure, the invention is known to be the earliest kind of e-cigarette that used a heated, flavoured air. The better known electronic cigarettes were developed by a Chinese pharmacist named Hon Lik. The inventor was the first to manufacture and sell e-cigarettes in the Chinese market and eventually, internationally. Although the idea started in 2003, it wasn't until 2006 that e-cigarettes were introduced in the US and Europe.

According to a study published by the American Journal of Preventative Medicine in February 2011, e-cigarettes can be helpful for smokers who would want to quit smoking. The research adds that smokers who have used e-cigarettes on the average undergo a six-month smoking abstinence. In addition, a different study published in August 2011 concludes that smokers who have switched to e-cigarettes have lessened their intake of conventional tobacco-based cigarettes.
