What are electronic cigarettes?
Electronic cigarettes or ecigs are battery-powered devices that work by heating a liquid into an aerosol that the user inhales and exhales. The e-cigarette liquid typically contains nicotine, propylene glycol, glycerin, flavorings.
Electronic cigarettes are known by many different names. They are often called ecigs, e-hookahs, vapes, vape pens, tank systems, or mods. They come in many different shapes and sizes—some look like a regular cigarette, some look very different.

When you’re looking for an alternative to smoking cigarettes, you’ll come across many suggestions for the perfect substitute. If you’re trying to slowly wean yourself off smoking and tobacco, nicotine replacement therapies, like nicotine patches and gum, help reduce withdrawal symptoms. These tools slowly remove your nicotine craving until you are able to quit for good.
If you still want to enjoy nicotine but want to know first if an electronic cigarette is an optimal solution, learn what vape devices are and how they work.
Anatomy of an E-Cigarette
Ever wondered how an e-cigarette or vape pen works? It’s easy to understand the mechanics of a vape pen by knowing its primary components. A vape pen is essentially an outer casing with space for an e-liquid pod. The parts of an e-cigarette are:
- Vape pod: This piece is sold separately and contains the flavored liquid that becomes the vapor you inhale. Vape fluids may have different concentrations of nicotine or none at all. The quantity of a vape pod is usually only a few milliliters. Each inhalation or pull depletes this amount.
- Heating coil: Also called the atomizer. When you inhale or press a button on a vape pen, the fluid from the pod is drawn into this component. Electrical energy heats up the atomizer, which then vaporizes the fluid, turning it into a fine mist.
- Mouthpiece: Your inhalations draw the fine flavored mist from the atomizer and out of the pen through its mouthpiece.
- Power source: Vape pens are battery-powered, and this power source provides the electricity that heats up the atomizer. Better vape pens have longer battery life and can charge quicker.
Although this process may seem simple, RELX uses sophisticated designs to provide you with the next generation of vape pens.
