It’s electric. That’s right. An electric cigarette. Touted as the alternative to smoking tobacco, this battery operated device provides inhaled doses of nicotine delivered by a nicotine solution. In addition to nicotine, the solution is also flavored (cherry, chocolate and mint). Physical sensation is similar to inhaled tobacco smoke.

World renown photographer, Aaron Cobbett sports one of the many ultracool e-cigarettes, stating, “I have fallen in love with these things, and haven’t smoked a cigarette since. Of course Mayor Bloomberg (undoubtedly with big tobacco behind him) is trying to ban these things, but I must tell you they are great. So far I seem to be the only one in NYC with one. Everyone freaks out when they see it. Not only are they legal indoors (for now) but they look super cool.”

The FDA is currently investigating e-cigarettes.

    Are the health benefits compared to typical cigarettes known?

    Currently the FDA is looking at that. Obviously the e-cigarette uses nicotine so it’s still addictive.
