This modern smoking device e-cigarettes was originally invented by Hon Lik in 2003 a chinese pharmacist. The employer who hired him later renamed it as Ruyan which started exporting the product in 2005 and also received international patent for it in the year 2007.

Anatomy of a smokeless cigarette : Catridge, atomizer and rechargeable battery


This is a small plastic container with basically two ends to it. One end attaches to the atomizer (or heating element) and the other end is for the mouth piece. Cartridges come in two forms: disposable or refillable.

  • Disposable > As the name states these are pre-filled cartridges that you buy as a package and once use you throw it away (use and throw)
  • Refillable > These are reusable containers so that you can buy the liquid and refill yourselves


This is also known as heating element is primarily the component that vaporizes the liquid from the above cartridge

Rechargeable battery (power source)

Battery is the primary power source that powers the atomizer or the heating elements which in turn creates the heat to vaporize the liquid. These batteries are commonly rechargeable so that you could charge them over and over again

How does it work?

Although they look like real cigarettes it would be nice to understand what process undergoes when someone smokes electronic cigarettes.

  1. The user (smoker) inhales the cigarette
  2. Sensor detects air flow and turns on heater element using a battery
  3. Heater vaporizes liquid in the cartridge
  4. A theatrical smoke is created by vaporizing propylene glycol
  5. Smoker gets a puff of hot gas that will feel like a tobacco
  6. Now when smoker exhales there is a cloud of propylene glycol vapor that looks like real smoke
