History of Vaping
Vaping industry has evolved so much in the modern world, but it still has its roots in ancient history, that is, in Ancient Egypt, hot stones were used to vape herbs. Since then, vaping industry has been on a growth trend and has succeeded in such a short amount of time. However, we often wonder, what is the history behind how things changed gradually in vaping industry?
In 1963, Herbert A. Gilbert came up with the idea and created the very first electronic cigarette, which was patented in 1965 as a device called “smokeless non-tobacco cigarette”. The cigarettes were widely accepted back then and there was no demand by smokers to switch over to electronic cigarette that led to e-cigarette never being commercialized during that time.
Eventually, a major breakthrough was made when a Chinese pharmacist named Hon Lik made the first e-cigarette. His intention of making e-cigarette was instigated when his father died of lung cancer due to smoking. He ignited the idea of using a piezoelectric ultra-sound emitting element to vaporize a pressured jet of liquid containing nicotine diluted in a propylene glycol solution. The dilute nicotine became the liquid reservoir and the plastic cartridge became the mouthpiece. In 2006, while he was working at Ruyan Group (also referred to as Dragonite International) aided him in introducing this invention to the world.
Various designs were introduced in vaporizers on the most basic model, wherein, the first one used three-part mechanism to heat the e-liquid and produce vapor- battery, atomizer, and cartridge. There were many difficulties observed with the basic mechanism that led to the invention of cartomizer by British entrepreneurs Umar and Tariq Sheikh. The biggest benefit of cartomizer was that it connected to the battery and e-juice which led to longer time of vaping making it more customer friendly.
