Vaping vs Ecigs
Ecigs (ecig, e-cig, e-cigarette, cigalike etc.) refer to early style vaporizers that emulate the shape and size of traditional tobacco cigarettes. Ecigs and similar entry level devices are still often the first experience with combustion free nicotine; many of those who begin vaping using these devices however find ecigs to be unsatisfying and quickly transition to using a more powerful modern Vaporizer.
Ecigs can either be fully disposable devices or may have replaceable cartridges where the filter would be on a tobacco cigarette. These devices are still readily available at many convenience stores around the world.
Vaping refers to the act of inhaling vapor produced from the vaporization of e-liquid (for more information on e-liquid please read our article located here). Vaping is a loving term that “vapers"" began using to further separate the vape industry and culture from the cigarette / smoking image that “e-cig"" and “e-cigarette"" evoke.
So to sum up the difference between vaping and e-cigarettes; E-cigs are a type of first generation vaporizer and the use of any device that vaporizes e-liquid is considered vaping. So, both the larger vaping devices you may have seen people with blowing out large volumes of vapor and the e-cigs that you can buy at the convenience store are “vaping"" devices but not all vaping devices are e-cigs. So many people around the globe have had amazing experiences with its help that an amazing and vibrant culture has emerged around vaping. Many thousands of people find the daily support and courage that they need to live tobacco free within the vast ZampleBox family of vapers; a community built on helping each other succeed in becoming and staying tobacco free.
