How an e-cigarette works – transcript
E-cigarettes use electricity to heat an element (the atomizers) to vapourize nicotine containing liquid known as e-liquid.
As you press down on the power button, the coil heats and vapourizes e-liquid that the atomizer is submersed in.
As you inhale through the mouthpiece, air is drawn up though to the atomizer where it combines with the vapour and passes through to your lungs.
