What is Vaping?

Vaping (using an e-cigarette) is an alternative to smoking, which doesn’t involve the tar or combustion involved in smoking tobacco. A vaping device contains three main components:

  1. The battery device. (Some vaping devices have built-in batteries that are charged via USB, others have batteries which can be removed and recharged with a specialist charger.)
  2. The clearomiser or tank (which holds the e-liquid). This is usually made of glass or plastic and holds the e-liquid, and a coil that heats up the e-liquid that sits inside it. 
  3. The e-liquid

The battery heats up the coil inside the tank, which causes the e-liquid to turn into a vapour which is then inhaled.

Will Vaping save me money?

The set up costs for a starter kit will vary depending on the type you chose. After that, the running costs would be for e-liquid to refill your tank, and replacement coils. Coils will usually last approximately two weeks, depending on the type, and cost just a few pounds each. Your local vape shop will be able to help you choose the best type of device for your needs, and guide you through choosing the best liquids to get you started. Switching from a 20-cigarette-per-day smoking habit to vaping could save up to £3,350.

Is secondhand smoke from e-cigarettes harmful?

As electronic cigarettes give out vapour there is no second hand smoke, but people may experience second hand vapour inhalation if you use your electronic cigarette in a space that is not ventilated or is confined. According to NHS, there is no evidence that exposure to e-cigarette vapour is harmful for bystanders.
