Unlike a traditional tobacco cigarette the electronic cigarette doesn’t burn anything therefore produces no carbon monoxide, tar or indeed any of the harmful chemicals produced and associated with smoking cigarettes. The electronic cigarette does look and feel like a “normal” cigarette however it works very differently.

The three parts of an electronic cigarette include a battery which may be charged up as required, a cartridge which contains the e liquid and the atomizer (can also be referred to as atomiser or clearomizer or clearomiser) which is made up of a heater coil and has a wick (wickless versions are also available). The battery powers the atomizer which heats the e liquid for consumers to inhale and enjoy.
