Regardless of the flavor or the way the device looks they all work in very similar ways:

  1. A battery inside the device activates a heating element (atomization chamber).

  2. A small amount of nicotine is heated into a vapor/aerosol.

  3. That solution of nicotine, other chemicals, flavors, and coloring is inhaled then exhaled by the user.
