You can answer your questions in any of the following places:

E Cigarette Direct sell two kinds of e-cig kits: a cartomiser kit and a tank system. What’s the difference between them?
Answer: Although there are many ways to answer this, essentially a cartomiser kit has s disposable cartridge with an inbuilt atomiser. That means it is a two part e-cigarette, and you just throw the cartridge away when you are finished with it. A tank system, however, is a three part e-cigarette with a separate cartridge which you fill with e-liquid.
Congratulations to Ria Cash, who won an electronic cigarette kit, and to John Skeffington, who has won our bonus prize of a £50 pound voucher. John and Ria, could you please email me on [email protected] so I can send you your prizes.

The most common reason people use a VG based e-liquid is because of an allergy to propylene glycol. Other possible reasons include a preference for vapour, for a smoother vape or for a sweeter taste. Many e-liquids include both pg and vg, the strengths of which can be adjusted to change the amount of vapour/throat hit the liquid produces.
Ruyan established a private company, SBT to manufacture and distribute “electronic cigarette” technology under the “Ruyan” brand in 2003.
Several people referred to Herbert A. Gilbert’s smokeless tobacco cigarette, patented but never created in 1963, and we also accepted this as a correct answer.
