Electronic cigarettes, E cigarettes, or E Cigs are battery operated inhalers that consist of a rechargeable battery, a cartridge and an LED that lights up at the end when you puff on the device.

Strictly speaking, vaporizer is one kind of electronic cigarette, or called electronic cigarette vaporizer. It contains all components of conventional electronic cigarette, but with much powerful battery and cartridges, atomizer, cartomizer, or clearomizer that turns vaping material into vapor. The battery generates the power for the heating element in the cartridges, atomizer, cartomizer, or clearomizer which contacts the vaping material and transforms it into vapor for inhalation. Besides, vaporizer has bigger container and a wide array of e-juice can be used.

The original idea of inventing electronic cigarette by Hon Lik was to replace the traditional tobacco smoking. Smokers who use electronic cigarette enjoy the magic nicotine without suffering from thousands of toxins and carcinogens from burning tobacco.

In 2010, the electronic cigarette inventor, Hon Lik, was elected as Kcancer Hero. Kcancer is a parent company of Rebrandsmoking. We predicted that lung cancer cases would drop significantly, if most of the smokers chose to use electronic cigarettes, instead of traditional tobacco smoking. We are waiting for the scientific data on electronic cigarette usage and lung cancer.

Since its introduce in 2004, electronic cigarette industry has been evolved dramatically. As of today, January 20, 2018, vape stores, vape lounges, and vape clubs have been spreading in every corner of the US. In my community of about 2000 people, there are two vape stores!

The original idea of using electronic cigarettes as quit tobacco smoking tool or alternative smoking is replaced with vaping. Vaping is now an entertainment movement.

This is a very unfortunate development. Right now, there are more than 500 different electronic cigarette brands and 8000 of different e-liquids. The full extent of electronic cigarettes and relevant products on human health over time is not known.

Human beings once again use their precious body to test the unknown products. When entering the vape clubs, I see people use the vaping machines, inhale the heated smoking or cloud, and then exhale the huge cloud. Immediately I feel that this is unnatural and soon or late we are going to see illness that are related to the current vaping revolution.

If you could, please don’t join the vaping revolution. This is why we suggest a straightforward electronic cigarette for people to quit tobacco smoking or use as alternative smoking. If you like vaping, please choose carefully.

  1. This is very interesting. I always wondered what the difference between a e-cigarette and a vaporizer was. I never knew that there were over 500 different electronic cigarette brands and 800. different liquids. That is amazing.

    I also learned that the e-cigarette was introduced in 2004. Wow! That means it has been around for way longer than what I initially thought. I really like how you are helping people stay away from tobacco smoke and going towards a more safer alternative. Thank you helping so many people and keep up the excellent and hard work…

    1. Hi Lakisha, Thanks for taking your time to read my article. I am a smoker and quit three years ago. It was tough to quit smoking. But after quitting, I feel much better in all aspects of my life. This why I have been working hard to advise people to quit smoking.
      I follow the development of smoking industry last 30 years and understand that the true reason people smoking is gaining exciting effects of Nicotine. For most smokers, proper amount of nicotine is safe. Electronic cigarette could be a good source for smoker to enjoy the high from nicotine, but without thousands toxins and carcinogens.

  2. I quit smoking in 1996 after many years. I know it was difficult to quit but I finally did. That was before e cigarettes so I am very much in the dark on how they work. Your article explained a lot to me. Seems e cigs could be beneficial to those still struggling with smoking cigarettes. thanks for posting this.

    1. Hi Craig, it is so nice that you quit smoking long ago. Now you don’t have to deal with anything associated with smoking and potential diseases. Although e cig is safer than the traditional tobacco cigarettes, but the safety of e cig is still unknown. Don’t try e cig since it contain nicotine, which may cause addiction to it.

  3. Thank you for your insight, I have always thought many improperly use the vapor products. Many even add thc oils to the products. I will be trying the v2pro you recommended.
    Wish you the best success,

    1. Hi Jim, Thanks for stopping by. I wish we could use electronic cigarette as alternative smoking since it is safer than the traditional tobacco smoking. However, the safety of e cig is still unknown. Introducing many vapor products into bring many uncertain factors. I need to have cautious approach.

      You made smart selection of V2 Pro, which is one the best vapor product.

  4. Hello Anthony, at first when the e products came out I thought it would be such a great and safe alternative to cigarettes. I am saddened that is not true. What do you suggest as the most safest for anyone might already have compromised lungs?
    In peace and gratitude, ariel

    1. Hi Ariel,
      Thanks for your question. There is no “safe” smoking. For people with compromised lungs, it is essential to quit any kind of smoking. The next step is to detox lungs. I am researching on the ways on how to detox lung for normal people and smokers. I will let you know when I have the article ready.

  5. Dear Anthony,

    Its a Great Article. I learned about electronic cigarette and vaporizer and you provided detailed information.

    Yes as you stated “This is a very unfortunate development. Right now, there are more than 500 different electronic cigarette brands and 8000 of different e-liquids”. I am really worried about this and how it affect people health.

    Your Friend,

    1. Hi Paul,
      Thanks for stopping by and your interests. Electronic cigarette is the rapid development field. I wish it would contribute to health of human race. But it seems that it is overusing of such products at this moment. We will see how this will affect people’s health. Time will tell. Rebrandsmoking and Kcancer will follow the development and will update this regularly.

  6. I am amazed at how many Vape stores have popped up in out little rural area. Almost as many as DD’s or MacD’s. There seems to be one every half mile. Based on that, I imagine there are a lot of users.
    As you point out, who knows what impact taking all those vapors into your body is going to have? Why do it? There are so many other ways to find entertainment that will stimulate your brain, allow good interactions with others, and not potentially damage your body.
    Thank you for this information and article, Anthony.

    1. Hi Annie,
      Thanks for sharing your observations and your opinion on Vaping. As a matter of fact, there are more Vape stores than MacDonald in my town; there are two Vape stores and only one MacDonald, which indicates that there are a lot of vapors.
      There is no scientific data on the impact of Vaping on human health. At this moment, we could just wait for the data from long term Vape users. We are following the development of electronic cigarette industry and will present regular update in this area.

  7. I have been wondering what the difference (if any) was between e-cigs and vaping, so I am glad to see an explanation.

    I lam personally very opposed to any kind of smoking, simply because I have seen its effect on people I care about. I hope I live to see a day when nobody feels the need to smoke anything anymore.
