What is an e-cigarettes and when were they invented?
The electronic cigarette was first developed in Beijing, China by Hon Lik, a 52 year old pharmacist, inventor and smoker in 2003. He invents the device after his father, also a heavy smoker, dies of lung cancer. The company Lik worked for, Golden Dragon Holdings, developed the device and changed their name to Ruyan, which means "like smoke". An electronic cigarette, also known as an e-cigarette or personal vaporizer, is a battery-powered device that provides inhaled doses of nicotine by way of a vaporized solution. Electronic cigarettes are reusable devices with replaceable and refillable parts. When a user inhales (takes a drag) through the e-cigarette, air flow is detected by a sensor, which activates a heating element (atomizer) that vaporizes a nicotine solution stored in the mouthpiece (cartridge).
