Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes or e-vaporizers) are battery-operated devices that people use to inhale nicotine or flavorings into the lungs. When you puff on it, the e-cigarette makes vapor from the liquid in the cartridge. You then inhale this vapor. People call this "vaping."
Some slang names for e-cigarettes are:
- vape pipes
- vape pens
