In the early 2000s when his father died of lung cancer, Hon Link, Chinese pharmacist from Shenyang, had the idea of diluting the nicotine in propylene glycol. The e-cigarette as we know it today was born. The first patent was filed in 2005.
The electronic cigarette allows you to find similar sensations of a traditional cigarette without its drawbacks
Indeed, with this new modern and hi-tech device, you can relive intact sensation while controlling your nicotine level and discover new fancier sensations.
The principle of using an electronic cigarette is simple
1 - The user inhales air at the tip of the e-cigarette
2 - The intensity of the inhalation activates the resistance (It can also be activated by a button)
3 - The resistance begins to heat a portion of the wick soaked in the e-liquid
4 - Vapor full of aroma is then released

The e-liquid is a flavored mixture composed of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, food flavorings and sometimes nicotine.
This liquid, which is heated by your atomizer (between 50 and 70 °C in general, but a lot more if you love subohm) will produce the steam (there is no combustion process)
According to your needs, the e-liquid may contain a percentage of nicotine.
It is widely used in many industries such as food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. All manufacturers of eliquid use pharmacopoeia grade PG.
It generally represents between 30% and 70% of the composition of an e-liquid.
It enhances the flavors of your e-liquid and gives you the « hit » in the throat.
In some e-liquids, there is no PG. We call them "e-liquid 100% vegetable glycerin".
It comes from synthesizing plant-based raw materials (corn, soy, canola …), in other words VG comes 100% from vegetable. All manufacturers of eliquid use pharmacopoeia grade VG.
Viscous and odorless, Vegetable Glycerin is already widely used in the food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals industries.
Vegetable glycerin provides an abundant steam, which is why it is much more appreciated by subohm vaping lovers.
It generally represents between 30% and 70% of the composition of an e-liquids but some are 100% composed of Vegetable Glycerine and provide abundant steam with a less pronounced flavor, but sweeter.
The more you increase the dose of Propylene Glycol, the more the flavor and the hit will be pronounced but your cloud will be smaller.
At the contrary, with a higher Vegetable Glycerin level, the flavor will be less pronounced but it will produce a big cloud.
Depending on your needs, you can find the right balance for you between these two components in all the e-liquid on the market.
They have a very important role because they give the flavor to your e-liquid.
All the conscientious and serious manufacturers use food grade certified aromas.
There are a large number of flavors, from mono tobacco flavor to complex flavor (mix), through the most exotic fruits or other creamy recipes.
Your experience with the electronic cigarette will be decisive taking into account the quality of the e-liquid, the level of nicotine and the selection of flavors. It is therefore very important to make choices based on the following criteria:
You should always check the composition and origin of your e-liquid.
Make sure that the label contain the expired date, the manufacturer name and adress.
