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.
