An electronic cigarette that is also referred to as an e-cig or a vaporizer is an electronic device that provides a similar experience to that of smoking a traditional combustible tobacco cigarette without having to deal with any adverse side-effects that come along with the later one. In an e-cig, an eliquid is heated to produce vapor instead of tobacco in a manner similar to smoking but without any negative side effects. Electronic cigarettes function with the help of a battery and an atomizer that heats the eliquid.
These devices have become a popular trend in the recent years and have helped a lot of people who switched to their usage to quit their bad habit of smoking combustible tobacco cigarettes. The lack of a number of harsh and health damaging chemicals is what gives electronic cigarettes an edge over its counterpart. Regular cigarettes contain hundreds of poisonous chemicals like tar that causes lung cancer.
Another thing that backs up the usage of electronic cigarettes is the wide range of eliquid flavors that the e-cig users can choose from like mint, fruit and even tobacco flavors. Our stock contains a variety of popular eliquids of premium quality and mouthwatering flavors.
Advantages Of Electronic Cigarettes
Cheap: You don’t have to spend a fortune like you do on traditional tobacco cigarettes. A 10ml bottle of eliquid can be vaped for a couple of days depending on the amount of your e-cig usage. A person who smokes 20 cigarettes a day can save up to £120 a month which adds up to £1440 a year.
Safe: A lot of health experts actually recommend electronic cigarettes to people who smoke and that is the reason why over 2 million people in the UK alone prefer vaping over smoking. Public Health England suggests that vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking.
Clean: Unlike smoking, no harmful chemicals spread into the air on your exhales from the electronic cigarettes which means no smell from your clothes, house or car.

History of Electronic Cigarettes
If you are wondering where the modern-day electronic cigarettes came from then read-on – we have all the answers that you are looking for.
The Journey of Electronic Cigarettes
Herbert A. Gilbert is the genius American inventor who came up with the design for the electronic cigarettes in 1963. His design produced steam instead of vapors and no nicotine contents were used in the vaping liquid. Herbert’s design was then later patented but could not get much attention which became a hurdle for the mass production of his invention. Improvements were made during the 80s and 90s but no breakthrough could be recorded that could make Herbert’s design as popular as the modern-day e-cig.
Later in 2001, a Chinese pharmacist named Hon Lik came up a new design that is known as the modern-day electronic cigarette. The electronic cigarette as we know today is the same thing that Hon Lik designed except for the fact that it uses ultrasonic technology instead of a battery-powered vaporizer. The design was later patented in 2003 and the Chinese market brought forth the product in 2004. Hon Lik’s e-cig was dubbed as the “e-cigar” and gathered a loyal fan following throughout China and later grabbed the attention of various small suppliers from the US via the internet.
The popularity of these vaping devices grew tremendously by 2007 and it was being sold throughout both Europe and the US. That is when, two brothers named Umar and Tariq Sheikh came up with a design that featured a heating coil which made it easy for the electronic cigarette users to manually fill the eliquid and replace the cartridge with more ease. Their designed further paved the path for development of the atomizer by 2009 that further increased the popularity of the modern-day vaping devices. The cartomizer basically allow the vapers to check the amount of e-liquid left in their devices.
