The eCig, short for Electronic Cigarette, is a device that is battery powered to produce inhaled doses of nicotine by way of a vaporized solution. It makes use of a rechargeable battery that powers a heating element (coil). The eLiquid comes in contact with the coil and is then vaporized.
An Electronic Cigarette is quite simple in design, but there are multiple parts that can make up or be used with the electronic cigarette. Below is the basic parts that make up a complete electronic cigarette. Some can be replaced with other style parts.
First Time Vapers
Your first time inhaling vapor is a lot different than what most people expect. Your lungs are used too tobacco smoke, which is completely different than eLiquid vapor. A traditional cigarette you will need to pull hard to get smoke, but with vaping – you’ll pull slow and steady. Remember, liquid is inside your atomizer/cartomizer, so you don’t want to pull hard enough to suck that liquid into your mouth.
When you inhale vapor, the longer you hold it in your mouth, the less vapor you’ll blow out. Remember, this is about you… so find your own style of vaping and what feels most comfortable to you.

What To Expect

You are probably gonna try things you like and try things you don’t like. You can not get upset if you don’t like a flavor of liquid as taste changes from person to person, don’t get turned off.
Don’t Get Tricked
Many vendors are in this market to help you, while others are out just to make a buck or trick you. Here’s a few tips that will help you.
Don’t Fall For Free Trials: You’ll see many ads or receive emails that will offer you a free trial e-cig. Do not fall for this trick. To get the free trial, they’ll ask you to give you a credit card number, but they won’t charge you. After that, they’ll bill you and charge you quite a bit for a horrible product.
Don’t Buy From Gas Stations: Do not buy an electronic cigarette from a gas station. The e-cig you’ll normally receive will be considered poorly made and probably the worst on the market. Most disposable e-cigs claim to last 24 hours, but they don’t and for most smokers, it won’t satisfy them.
Don’t Be Fooled By Kiosk Pricing: Many kiosks are over-charging people for products. Don’t be fooled by the nice products, because they come with a high price.
Don’t be fooled by low quality electronic cigarettes. Just because it looks like a real cigarette doesn’t mean it performs the best.
