What are Vapes (E-Cigarettes)?


Vapes (e-cigarettes) are battery operated devices that heat a liquid (e-liquid/ e-juice). E-liquids are chemical solutions that come in different flavours with varying levels of nicotine. The heated e-liquid turns into an aerosol. Vaping is the act of inhaling the aerosol. Vaping devices can be small and easy to disguise. They may resemble a pen, highlighter or USB stick.
