How Do Smokeless Cigarettes Work?

Electronic Smokeless Cigarette

Cartridge: The cartridge holds the liquid solution that contains the nicotine supply. This is designed in a manner that facilitates the flow of air, and this is what allows the smoker to draw in on the nicotine. Upon the liquid’s depletion, the cartridge is either replaced or refilled.

Atomizer: The atomizer works as the heating element and this enables the liquid to vaporize. Atomizers have a limited life span, and need to be replaced periodically.

The Battery: A majority of the smokeless cigarettes work on Lithium Ion (Li-ion) batteries, and these are required to provide power to the atomizer. Battery life would depend on factors such as usage, size, type, etc. Also, just as chargers for mobile phone batteries, a user has options to choose from regular wall chargers, USB chargers, as well as car chargers.

Circuitry: A number of models include electronic circuitry that prevents the other components from overheating as well as LEDs (light emitting diodes) which indicate that the device is operational.

Newer alternatives also come with options that function without batteries, and deliver the nicotine without any visible mist. These, therefore, can even be ‘smoked’ in places where electronic cigarettes aren’t allowed. These particular smokeless cigarettes are made using sealed plastic tubes, and upon the tubes being cut, and air being drawn in, the smoker gets his/her fix of nicotine.
