Since day one, man has always had fixation on smoking tobacco.
Its been proven today that cigarettes are dangerous to our health but yet we still do it. There’s a list of additives and chemicals founded in present tobacco products.
The history began when an American man named Herbert Gilbert invented the first smokeless non-tobacco cigarette. The idea was to substitute the traditional cigarette to flavored steam or vapor which contains nicotine. It wasn’t work out until 2003 when this product actually hit the market. This happened from the effort of a man named Hon Lik from China who was successfully market the product.

If you blow cigarette smoke out on white color cloth, it will turn yellow on the spot however vape smoke will remain white. This actually show us on what it may affect to the inside of our lungs.
PART 2- COSTING
Costing on vape gear are the reason given by some smokers for not to quit. If we do the calculation, a pack of cigarette may cost about $15 a day. If $15 times by 7 days, the cost are already $105 a week. If smokers save this amount for a week, smokers can afford to get the complete set of vapor.. And the price for the e-juice variety are around $15 and it can be last long for a couple of weeks, depending on how often ou vape and type of juice you buy. Some people are proven wit saving more than $100 a week after switching to e-cigaratte.

Only 4 main ingredients in each bottle of e-juice. The first one is glycerin-an organic element from vegetables.
The second ingredient is Propylene Glycol, a core found in asthma inhalers. Next are food grade flavoring that gave the taste of each e-juice mixture.
There is no confirmation on inhaling effect over a long period time, but till today there is no studies done showing the result of any major adverse for long term side effects.
And the last mixing material is nicotine- although it can be an addiction, but there’s an option to vapors make a choice whether to get an e-juice that has a percentage of nicotine or without it at all.
Researcher found a number of lethal additives in cigarettes which are Hydrogen Cyanide, Carbon Monoxide and Formaldehyde. Recently, there is an article inform on the formation of Formaldehyde in e-liquid are at high temperatures. This study has been protest few times and disputed by scientist that conducted the experiment. The major point of the argument is on vapers would unnecessary need to reach the dangerous temperature in order to get the maximum impact on vaping experience.
By right, nobody are able to deprive the taste of conditions set forth in the experiment.
PART 4- THE FACT OF CIGARETTES INGREDIENT

If you are using extremely low resistance sub ohm builds with over 50 watts of power, battery safety will probably not a big issue. Proper care must be taken like any lithium battery in order to ensure safe usage of the product similar as other portable electronic devices such as laptops and cellphones.
