Why cheap electronic cigarettes are fast gaining ground over the conventional tobacco cigarette
Tobacco cigarettes have been with us for a long time. Currently, close to half of the world’s adult population are smokers. However, the proportion of tobacco smokers is starting to reduce more dramatically in certain countries. A great chunk of those abandoning tobacco cigarettes are finding a new home in cheap electronic cigarettes. These are products that are relatively new to the market but they are fast gaining ground over their tar-laden traditional counterpart.
Ordinarily, people do not abandon something they’re satisfied with in favour of a new product unless the new product has something exceptional to offer, and electronic cigarettes do seem to have something better than that offered by tobacco cigarettes.
Although these relatively new products were initially seen as a gimmick or accessible only to some people, the truth is that they are very affordable (much cheaper than normal cigarettes), accessible to everyone now (in shops in larger towns and there are lots of online stores) and they do provide a satisfying alternative to someone who’s been used to smoking the traditional ciggie.
Although there is controversy regarding this fact, the cheaper electronic cigarette can be smoked in public. Yes. While tobacco cigarettes are subject to public smoking bans, e-cigarettes are exempted from such bans. The main reason the products can be smoked in public is because they do not burn anything and they don’t produce smoke.
However, despite there being no ban in place, an increasing number of restaurants, pub chains, cruise ships etc have banned them from their premises. So always check wherever you go.
Electronic cigarettes do not emit the awful smell of tobacco burning so it’s good news that no-one will smell your e-cigarette vapour, so expect a lot less tutts and sour-faced looks as someone walks past you in the street. They may even be intrigued with your new gadget when they see it as there are some really lovely styles now.
Because the vapour has minimal odour, this also means that an e-cigarette smoker does not have to worry about the smell of smoke lingering on their clothes, in their furniture and in their car. Simply put, these devices allow smokers to smoke and forget about it.
Even in the short term, electronic cigarettes are much more cost effective than tobacco cigarettes. Starter kits come with everything to get going (remember the liquid too) and this means that once you buy the kit, you will only need to buy refill liquid and spare parts to keep the ‘vaping’ experience going. The kits are fun when you get used to them.
As e-cigarettes aren’t alight and don’t produce a flame, they do not pose the same fire safety hazard as that posed by traditional cigarettes. It’s an important factor that electronic cigarettes do not contribute in the same way to the costly accidental fires caused by tobacco-burning cigarettes.
The cheap electronic cigarette is an invention whose time has come. They are convenient. They are cheaper. Users haven’t always got to travel to a smoking zone and smokers don’t have to stand out in the cold. In short, a smoker will feel less of a social pariah and they can make life a lot easier. e-Cigarettes can, within reason, be smoked anywhere and at any time. They are, thus, a product that gives smokers the freedom that they deserve.
