How does the e-cigarette work?
Electronic cigarettes are made up of 2 main components: a battery and a wickless non leaking clearomiser. Once you have added e-liquid to your clearomiser, rotate the clearomiser to allow the eliquid to mix into the device fully. Press the button on the side of the battery and inhale to use. When you inhale, the clearomiser turns a small amount of the liquid nicotine into nicotine vapour which is delivered through the mouthpiece. The principle of this is the same as steam formation from water.
