E-CIGARETTE

Watch it on YouTube : ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE

An electronic cigarette, also known as an e-cigarette, personal vaporizer or PV, is an electronic inhaler that vaporizes a liquid solution into an aerosol mist, simulating the act of tobacco smoking. Electronic cigarettes are no longer marketed as smoking cessation aids or tobacco replacement in most countries. There may be similarities between conventional and some electronic cigarettes in the physical design and the nicotine release, which may approximate the same amount of nicotine as a conventional cigarette. There are many electronic cigarettes which do not resemble conventional cigarettes at all. The amount of nicotine contained can be chosen by the user, with some choosing no nicotine at all.

Hon Lik, a Chinese pharmacist, is widely credited with the invention of the first generation electronic cigarette. In 2000, he came up with the idea of using a piezoelectric ultrasound-emitting element to vaporize a pressurized jet of liquid containing nicotine diluted in a propylene glycol solution.

It reaches 60 mph in 2.1 seconds; 100 mph in 4.5 seconds, and smashes the supercar 0-100-0 mph benchmark at 8.9 seconds. So this is quicker than a Bugatti Veyron; more potent than a McLaren F1. Ferrari Enzo, Porsche Carerra GT and Mercedes-McLaren SLR are Not even close.
