WHAT ARE E-CIGARETTES?
Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, are battery-operated devices that heat a liquid (called ‘e-liquid’) to produce a vapour that users inhale. They are designed to deliver nicotine and/or other chemicals via an aerosol vapour directly to your lungs (also referred to as vape or e-liquid nicotine). They do not generally contain tobacco and products vary in terms of ingredients and designs.
All e-cigarettes have three basic components: a battery, an atomiser and a fluid cartridge. The fluid used in e-cigarettes usually contains propylene glycol, glycerol, nicotine and added flavourings.
