According to the French National Health Insurance and the French Ministry of Health, in 2021, 32% of adults in France reported smoking and a quarter of them on a daily basis. Less harmful to health than traditional cigarettes, electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are becoming more and more popular. They are quickly being adopted as an alternative to traditional cigarettes and a solution for smokers quitting tobacco.
Discover how an electronic cigarette works with X-Bar.
The electronic cigarette was invented by Chinese Pharmacist: Hon Lik. His goal? Allow smokers to reduce their tobacco consumption while continuing to consume nicotine. Smoking a puff cigarette or a conventional electronic cigarette is a good tobacco substitute for quitting smoking, in the same way as chewing gum, patches, or lozenges.
While traditional cigarettes produce smoke by burning tobacco, an electronic cigarette emits vapour. E-cigarettes, therefore, contain no tar or carbon monoxide, which considerably reduces the health risks of daily consumption.
An electronic cigarette is a device made of three elements: a junction box, an e-liquid reservoir, and a heating element.
The junction box is the external power supply for the electronic cigarette. On a conventional electronic cigarette, this is the part you recharge by removing the battery and plugging it into a power point or directly connecting the e-cigarette to a USB cable.
The reservoir, also known as the atomiser or clearomiser, contains the e-liquid. The “drip tip” mouthpiece of the cigarette brings the liquid transformed into vapour to your mouth. The e-liquids are made of vegetable glycerine, propylene glycol, and food flavourings. You have the option of e-liquids containing nicotine, ranging from 0mg/ml to 20 mg/ml (in France.) You can gradually decrease the nicotine dosage if you want to stop smoking.
The heating element produces vapour by heating the e-liquid contained in the reservoir. Depending on the model of electronic cigarettes, there are different shapes, sizes, and resistance characteristics. Their value is expressed in two units:
You need to choose a power output adapted to your e-cigarette model. If the power is too low, the e-liquid will not be heated enough, causing low vapour production. On the other hand, if the power is too high, you could burn the heating element, causing the e-liquid to spill into your mouth.
In order to use your vape, you need to make sure that the battery is sufficiently charged. Unlike a conventional e-cigarette, a puff cigarette is a single-use device and does not need to be recharged. To maximise the lifespan of a puff cigarette and make it more eco-friendly, X-Bar offers the Click & Puff: a hybrid model that allows you to change the battery when you change the cartridge without throwing away your device.
While it is necessary to refill the reservoir of a conventional vape, the e-liquid is already included inside a puff cigarette. You no longer need to check if the reservoir is full: the blinking light on the puff cigarette tells you if there is no more e-liquid, which avoids the risk of dry burn and thus optimises the lifespan of the heating element.
X-Bar offers a wide selection of premium, ready-to-use e-liquids in a variety of flavours, such as:
You may also want to check out our pods, which allow you to avoid refilling your puff cigarette. Simply insert the pod which is pre-filled with e-liquid into your vape and enjoy a vaping experience free from inconvenience or mess.
While puffs require minimum upkeep, you will need to take more care of a conventional e-cigarette to maximise its lifespan. Make sure to:
While a traditional cigarette contains 4,000 toxic chemicals, the e-liquids used in puff cigarettes contain none. While tobacco use in any form is not recommended for your health, electronic cigarette users have a lower risk of developing diseases related to tobacco use and have much better chances of quitting smoking.
While a traditional cigarette produces tar and carbon monoxide by burning tobacco, the heating element of an e-cigarette produces vapour, which is free of toxic substances. By vaping, you can also reduce the amount of nicotine contained in the e-liquid and gradually reduce your tobacco consumption.
