They come with a disposable or rechargeable option.
The main difference is in the substance that we inhale:
- Traditional Cigar: It inhales smoke produced by combustion of snuff along with the additives and the paper that compose it.
- Electronic cigar: Steam is produced by heating the liquid. There is a change of state from liquid to vapor, there is never combustion, so a new substance is not generated. This vapor can contain the level of nicotine of your choice, which is absorbed through the mouth and lungs.
Difference in sensations:
In this sense, there is no difference between smoking and vaping. The sensation in the throat is similar, it can even be more pleasant vaping, because due to the variety of aromas available good sensations and a very pleasant taste are obtained.
