Tobacco heaters vs e-cigarettes

Tobacco heaters and e-cigarettes are alternatives to traditional cigarettes. While they may seem very similar at first glance, there are some notable differences.

So, what are the differences between tobacco heaters and e-cigarettes? You'll find all the information in this article.

How does an e-cigarette work?

Vape, also known as e-cigarettes, are battery-powered electronic devices that heat an e-liquid in the vaporiser and create an aerosol (vapour) which is then inhaled through the mouthpiece. This means that e-cigarettes do not produce smoke, only vapour.

The aerosol of an e-cigarette does not contain tobacco but may contain different flavours and therefore resemble the taste of tobacco. An e-liquid does not necessarily contain nicotine, as there are also nicotine-free e-cigarettes.

The most important differences between e-cigarettes and tobacco heaters

E-liquids vs tobacco sticks

The first difference is that with glo™, our tobacco heater, we use tobacco sticks. This is tobacco specially prepared to be heated, so it's different than compared to traditional cigarettes, which is burnt. With an e-cigarette, an e-liquid is used, which does not contain tobacco. This liquid is then transformed into vapour by the e-cigarette.

The e-cigarette contains no tobacco

Another difference to glo™ is that e-cigarettes do not contain tobacco, although they may have a tobacco flavour. In contrast, with a tobacco heating device like glo™ you can enjoy real tobacco. Heating tobacco results in 90% less toxicants*.

The similarities between e-cigarettes and tobacco heating devices

Now that you know the differences between e-cigarettes and tobacco heating devices, here are the similarities that make these two products a suitable alternative to cigarettes:

Electronic device:

Unlike cigarettes, tobacco heaters and e-cigarettes are electrically powered and run on batteries.

Nicotine content:

Nicotine is absorbed via the aerosols produced by the e-cigarettes and tobacco heating devices.

No combustion process:

E-cigarettes and tobacco heaters do not burn, so there is no ash, fire, or the smell of cigarette smoke**. However, it should be noted that the smoke and odours released by e-cigarettes correspond to the flavour of the e-liquid chosen by the consumer.

Different flavours:

Both e-cigarettes with their e-liquids and tobacco heaters with neo™ tobacco sticks are available with different flavours.

Alternatives to traditional cigarettes:

Tobacco heating devices and e-cigarettes are alternatives to cigarettes **.

Tobacco heater or e-cigarette: what's right for me?

Are you looking for a better alternative for smoking a cigarette?** If so, you could choose an e-cigarette. You'll be able to find different flavours and gradually reduce your nicotine intake. In that case, Vuse e-cigarettes could be a good solution for you.

However, if you don't want to do without nicotine and tobacco, the glo™ tobacco heater could be the best option for you. With the glo™ tobacco heater, there is no need to give up your smoking habits, the social interaction that can occur between smokers and the effect of nicotine, but enhance your smoking experience with 90% less toxicants*.

Ultimately, it's up to each individual to decide which alternative is the right one. Despite certain differences, e-cigarettes and tobacco heating devices offer smokeless pleasure.
