The best e-cigarettes available today provide a surprisingly real smoking experience that often surprises those trying this tobacco alternative for the first time. The first products introduced were poorly made gimmicks with heavy batteries and thin, unsatisfying vapor. Even so, there was great interest about the new products throughout the smoking public.
Satisfaction for e-smokers depends on the volume of vapor produced by the product. It is this vapor inhaled by the e-smoker that determines if the e-cigarette will resemble the tobacco smoke it is meant to replace. The thin vapor of cheap e-cigarettes may not satisfy the need for nicotine while the best e-cigarette (s) such as Green Smoke are well known for the high volume of nicotine laced vapor they produce.
The reason for e-smoking is to ingest nicotine. The vapor is important as a dense vapor yields a throat hit that is close to the feeling experience when you light up a standard cigarette. Tobacco users are accustomed to that first hit of nicotine hitting the back of their throat as they inhale. The nicotine is then quickly absorbed into the smoker’s body and the cravings are quickly satisfied.
The design of the best e-cigarette is quite similar to the look of the tobacco product it replaces. No longer do e-cigarettes have to be unbalanced due to heavy batteries at one end. New battery designs are lighter in weight and hold a charge longer. Some less expensive e-cigarettes today still are made in the same slick plastic, poorly weighted style that were sold several years ago.
New longer lasting batteries hold a charge much better than older versions. At the tip of the e-cigarette an LED light flares in brightness as you take puff on the mouthpiece of your e-cig. A bonus for smokers is that thought it may appear realistic, the fire on your e-cigarette will not burn a hole in your car seat or clothing.
Thought e-cigarettes are available in a variety of flavors the taste is not identical to tobacco products. They are close, though, and allow the user to choose regular or menthol or from a variety of flavors like chocolate, mocha or even strawberry.
The other choice to make when you buy e-cigarette (s) is the level of nicotine you prefer. If you are a heavy smoker with a preference for non-filtered standard cigarettes you may opt for the highest nicotine strength of 16 mg.
If you prefer to smoke full flavor tobacco brands, the 8 mg nicotine level is a good comparison. For smokers of Light brands the 6 mg strength will salve their nicotine needs and for Ultra Light smokers the choice is the lighter 4 mg e-cigarette cartridges.
Price is the one area where electronic cigarettes do not resemble the real product. Recent increases in tobacco taxes and an increase in wholesale prices by tobacco companies have driven the cost of tobacco cigarettes to $5-10 per pack. When you buy even the best e-cigarette such as the product produced by Green Smoke you will pay only about $2 for e-smoking that is equivalent to a pack of the tobacco product. The increasing consumer demand for electronic cigarettes is growing even more rapidly as budget tighten and smokers look for a safer and more budget friendly way to indulge their nicotine addiction.
