The Electronic Cigarette (TEC)
When a user inhales through the device, airflow is detected by a sensor, which activates a heating element that vaporizes a nicotine solution stored in the mouthpiece. It is this vapor that is inhaled by the user. An LED light built on a circuit board on the opposite end of the device is also activated during inhalation, which serves as an indicator of use, and also to simulate the glow of actual burning tobacco.
The Electric Cigarette (TEC) performs similarly to traditional tobacco smoking. It looks feels and tastes like a tobacco cigarette or cigar, and delivers all the pleasures of smoking without tar, carcinogenic additives and societal problems that are associated with tobacco cigarettes. The secret to what makes TEC better than traditional smoking is what is inside this revolutionary new product.
The non-flammable TEC is driven by modern microelectronic technology, a small rechargeable battery and a unique, safe replaceable cartridge containing water, propylene glycol, and nicotine, a scent that emulates a tobacco and other flavorings, and a membrane to suspend the ingredients. When using TEC, the act of inhaling (smoking) produces the tactile and craving satisfactions traditional smokers seek, and triggers a vaporizing process that releases simulated smoke, which is actually a vapor mist that evaporates into the air within a few seconds.
TEC contains only water, propylene glycol, nicotine, a scent that emulates a tobacco flavor, other flavorings, and a membrane to suspend the ingredients. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has determined propylene glycol to be "generally recognized as safe" for use in food, cosmetics, and medicines, although use in simulated smoking devices is not currently included in the list of usages generally recognized as safe.
TEC emits what appears to be smoke but is actually a virtually odorless mist that evaporates into the air within seconds, similar to the functioning of a humidifier. TEC leaves no visual residue in the air or lingering smell in clothes, home or car, whereas traditional smoking can leave an unsightly, acrid cloud known to irritate eyes and bother people's senses.
Since TEC is non-flammable, contains no tobacco and emits no secondhand smoke, it is not a form of smoking that would be prohibited under laws prohibiting smoking in public of products, which produce secondhand smoke. TEC customers have used the product without issue or complaint in restaurants, traditional workplaces, and many other locations where traditional tobacco smoking is discouraged or prohibited. We recommend, if you are in an environment where people do not know what this product is, just do not use our product.
TEC is not only potentially much healthier; it is a more cost effective alternative for any smoker. With the rising costs of cigarettes to an average of $6 a pack, this smoking alternative will decrease the amount spent on packs and put money back in your wallet. At the rate of one pack a day, smokers will spend an average of $42 a week, $182 a month, and $2,184 a year on cigarettes. One cartridge of TEC, retailed at $3 a cartridge, is equivalent to one pack of cigarettes. This in turn will cut your spending by one-half, to an average of $21 a week or $1,092 a year.
