History of e-cigarettes
E-cigarettes are basically the alternatives of am actual cigarette. But, these e-cigarettes also satisfy the smoking habit in the very same way as an actual cigarette.
The e-cigarette was originally invented in China. The credit of this invention goes to a Chinese pharmacist Hon Lik. China is popular as the production hub of e-cigarettes. Since their introduction in the market, their production and sales have raised dramatically all across the world. The major user counts of e-cigarettes are found in US and UK. Both these countries have a large percentage of chain smokers and hence these e-cigarettes have a wide market there. Also, e-cigarettes are more in usage because of their cheap pricing as compared to the actual cigarettes.
The liquid inside the structure of an e-cigarette is a mixture of nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerine and flavourings. It also contains aerosol that is heated to produce vapours that is inhaled by its user. The act of doing this is commonly referred to as vaping.
