What Is Vaping?

An activity that involves using an electronic cigarette or personal vaporizer is called 'Vaping'. Users who resort to this activity is termed vaper and they vape their e-cigarette or personal vaporizer.

What Is An E-Cigarette?

E-cigarette, also known as personal vaporizers, are devices that have been introduced to offer people a solid alternative to smoking tobacco cigarette. The device vaporizes e-liquid, a mixture of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, food flavorings and sometimes nicotine, that gives smokers flavored taste of tobacco. Currently, the market is flooded with the widest variety of vapor devices available ranging from the humble e-cigarettes to high wattage advanced personal vaporizers.


Though, the e-cigarette is available in extensive type and varieties, there are certain attributes and features that we find common with all vaping devices. Almost every vaping device uses a lithium battery to heat a wire coil. A wick is used to draw e-liquid to the coil. when the e-liquid is heated by the coil. The wick then vaporizes and can then be inhaled.

1. Vaping Device:

You can find vaping devices in wide variety, colors and shapes. Vapers may choose devices as per their vaping needs. Some of them look similar a traditional cigarettes while others might resemble a pen, a tube, a box, or other forms. All the devices however serve the same purpose ultimately. Each device receives the power supplied by the battery and deliver it to the atomizer.

2. Atomizer:

This is the heat resistant part of the device. Atomizer has one or more resistance wire coils and its wick(s) often with some form of reservoir to hold e-liquid. They are available in different styles. It includes atomized cartridges (obsolete), Cartomizers, Clearomizers, Rebuildable Tank Atomizers, Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers, Hybrid Atomizers (rebuildable dripping tank atomizers and Genesis Atomizers). Each of the atomizers have their own pros and cons.

3. Battery:

This is one of the most important components of a vaping device. While some vaping devices allow replaceable batteries, some have one or more replaceable and rechargeable high drain batteries.

4. Coils

Resembling like a spring, coils are the small pieces of resistance wire. Coil's resistance depends upon several factors including the type of wire used, the diameter of the coil and the number of wraps a coil has. Resistance is the key unit of a coil that determines the amount of electricity it will need to power it and the amount of heat it will produce. Most of the coils are made up of Kanthal and NiChrome.

2. E-Liquids:

E-Liquids are also known as e-juice. They comprise a mix of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, food flavorings, and nicotine. They are available in a variety of PG/VG ratios and nicotine strengths as per vapers' vaping needs. Usually, people who begin vaping, start with high nicotine juices and over time move towards lower strength. Being new to electronic cigarette, you shouldn't go with e-liquids with a nicotine strength above 18mg/ml. In beginning, it's recommended to go for the minimum nicotine strength. Do remember, lesser the nicotine content, more the flavor improved.

6. Wicks:

Wicks are the components that carry e-liquids to the coil. They are made up of materials like cotton, twisted silica cord, eko-wool, ceramic, and stainless steel mesh. Wicking material acts as delivery method e-juice from tank directly on to a coil itself, where it is vaporized.
