What Makes Smokeless Cigarettes Smokeless?

Smokeless cigarettes are exactly as the name implies; smokeless. They produce no smoke. They do not cause combustion; they burn nothing, including plant matter when used. 

If you were to see one in action, prior to knowing anything about them, you’d probably assume it’s a cigarette, perhaps set into some kind of fancy, old-school holder. In actuality, they are anything but!

There is no smoke, no second hand smoke, no smell, and no ash that’s going to come from these!

How electronic, smoke-free cigarettes work is simple. Perhaps a little odd if you know nothing about them or are encountering them for the first time, but indeed they are simple.

Ours are 2-part models, consisting of the main device: a high powered, lithium ion battery, and a refill cartridge.  E-cigarette batteries are much more than just batteries, however. It contains a smart chip, and senses the user when they begin to vape.

This sends a message to the atomiser contained within the cartridge to turn on. Which then heats the liquid nicotine that is inside the refill cartridge and vaporises it.

The user draws on it, and takes in a hit full of flavour, nicotine, and 100% no smoke or toxins, and then exhales the remaining vapour in exactly the same way they would smoke a cigarette!

So, to answer the question “what makes an e-cigarette smokeless?” Essentially vapour does. Fire, lighters, and tobacco have nothing to do with it, and smoke is a thing of the past!

While electronic cigarettes are made to replicate many factors like feel, comfort, and experience, they are quite different. Yet for smokers who are wary of using them because they think it will be too different from what they are used to, they provide a very similar experience to cigarettes. They really offer the best of both worlds… it really is better in the smokeless world!

So don’t delay, try INCIG electronic cigarettes today!

BBC reports on e cigarettes

The BBC has this week acknowledged the modern world phenomenon of electronic cigarettes, and not in too shabby a way either.In an article entitled "electronic cigarettes - miracle or menace?", reporter Graham Satchell observes that the number of 'vapers' in the UK looks set to top a million in 2013 for the first time, and makes the rather obvious consequential claim that sales are "growing fast".
Very recent research has shown that reduction in cigarette consumption amongst those who use e-cigs is double that of those who don't. Time declared that - thanks to newly realised profits from their sales - the wave of advertising for e-cigs presents a real challenge to big tobacco, quoting an e-cig supplier as saying that "our mission is to obsolete cigarettes, do I believe that's possible? Absolutely."
It's all good, isn't it? Well no, apparently not.
You see, anti-smoking organisations still appear to be wedded to the idea that the only good way to quit is the pharma way to quit. It's the Scrooge 'are there no work-houses?' defence. If you resist recommended methods, then you may as well die doing so and reduce the surplus population.
It is this intransigent dogma meeting enlightened realism which is causing a seismic split between those in the tobacco control industry who are sensible, and those who are not.
Former UK Director of Action on Smoking and Health Clive Bates is acerbic in his criticism of tobacco control dinosaurs with regard to harm reduction, the category e-cigs fall into. As far back as 2006, he described their approach as "well paid and comfortably smug"; he has also called ASH Scotland "fools" and referenced the generally embedded stubbornness as actions of the "tobacco control Taliban".
Because, incredibly, the dramatic reduction in harm which electronic cigarettes are undoubtedly promoting is inversely matched by increasingly deranged resistance from fruitcakes within the ranks of tobacco control.
Anti-smokers around the world are - without charging a fiver for their comedy - actually claiming that e-cigs are more harmful than smoking. I say comedy, but it's really not funny even though they are only advisers with a loose grip on reality.
The more scary prospect is that the EU - which does possess comprehensive powers - has tabled a new directive which aims to put e-cigs out of business for good. As it stands, the updated Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) would make accessories to e-cigs so weak that this new smoking cessation device would be rendered ineffectual overnight.
The million UK vapers cited by the BBC - along with millions more throughout the 26 other member states - would mostly be forced back to tobacco usage, and all those health gains would be lost.
And all on the say-so of the author of the TPD, Maltese Health Commissioner John Dalli, who is currently under investigation on claims of soliciting bribes in writing his disastrous directive in the first place. Odd, that.
So, well done the BBC for raising the subject of electronic cigarettes, but something more thorough could have been expected from an organisation which prides itself on being world-renowned.
Maybe now you try our e cigs?
