Electronic cigarette. E-cigarette assembled (bottom) and disassembled (top). Top from left: vapouriser (gold) fitted with a nicotine cartridge (brown), battery/cigarette body (white), and spare nicotine cartridge (brown) with plastic seal (orange). This device is designed as a healthier alternative to real cigarettes as it contains no tar. And as no smoke is produced, it can be 'smoked' indoors. Once assembled the action of inhaling through the 'filter' activates internal electronic circuits. This initiates a process that vapourises the nicotine contained in the cartridge.
