While it's become quite evident that vaping is far better than smoking, not everyone, especially those looking at vaping as a way to quit smoking, know the difference between E Cigs and Vaporizers. What you choose to vape is entirely up to you. But some insight into the differences, and some pros and cons might make the decision a much easier one for you. After all, if you're quitting smoking, you've already made one well informed decision.
The E Cigarettes
The E Cigarette was designed by a pharmacist from China back in 2003. The concept was to design a device that still resembled a cigarette, but contained a vapor with nicotine, instead of smoke.
The E Cig is basically made up of three parts. The mouthpiece, the cartomizer (the cartridge and atomizer), and the battery. It has a glowing LED light on the end to give the appearance of a burning cigarette when you inhale.
The positives of E Cigarettes is that it closely resembles an actual cigarette in both appearance and feel. Also, most of them come already filled with ejuice, thus minimizing any risk of spills or needing to refill them.
The negatives are that they run out quicker due to a smaller tank size. And the batteries don't tend to last very long. Also, you're pretty much forced to use the same brand for any replacements. There have even been some complaints about not being able to inhale effectively from them.
Well, cool name aside, the Vaporizer is the more modern vaping concept, having been around for only a few years. And a Vaporizer is considerably larger than an E Cigarette.
It's design is more akin to an over-sized fountain pen, and it has more options and advancements than it's predecessor. With a larger battery, a clear and increased capacity tank, as well as a button for heating the eliquid, it has become the choice of many vapers, especially those who have enjoyed vaping for a long time.
The drawbacks are again, the size, the fact that you have to refill them when they run out, and they are more expensive. But regardless of which you choose, I think you'll find that E Cigarettes and Vaporizers will not only be less expensive than smoking, but also healthier and tastier.
