What is Vapor?

imgresWhat is vapor?

If you are new to the world of electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, you might be wondering what exactly “vapor” is. Everyone knows about cigarette smoke, but people often wonder if vapor is an equivalent to smoke. They are definitely not the same thing!

One of the parts of an e-cigarette is an atomizer, which contains a heating coil that heats the liquid inside; vaporizing it. This resulting vapor looks like smoke, but contains none of the chemicals found in traditional cigarette smoke or second-hand smoke.

The liquid used in e-cigarettes, which is also known as e-juice or e-liquid, is a solution of propylene glycol (PG) and/or vegetable glycerin (VG) and/or polyethylene glycol 400 (PEG400). Both vegetable and glycerin and Propylene glycol are also used in many other applications, such as a food preservative, as an ingredient in cosmetic items like toothpaste and in certain popular medications. The base solution is then mixed with concentrated flavors, and optionally, with a form of liquid nicotine. Eliquid flavors range from formulations designed to replicate the taste of traditional cigarettes (from brand-specific flavors to menthol and more) to all sorts of delicious flavors that can be mixed or used alone. Some of the most popular flavors include apple, watermelon and blueberry. Vapor King offers over 30 premium, concentrated flavors, all of which can be mixed to create your own personal, one-of-a-kind eliquid blend.

When the eliquid is superheated by the atomizer, plumes of vapor are produced, which resemble traditional cigarette smoke, minus the thousands of chemicals and known carcinogens found in cigarettes.

What’s the lingo?

For those new to e-cigarettes, the lingo can at times be confusing. The easy rule of thumb is you can basically replace “smoke” with “vapor”. So, instead of “smoking”, you are “vaping”; instead of having a “smoke”, you “vape” and instead of being a “smoker” you become a “vaper”. Pretty easy to remember!

When did you make the switch from cigarettes to e-cigarettes?
