Electronic cigarettes, or E-cigarettes, have become popular among people who wish to use them as a way to kick their smoking habits. The devices are battery operated and stimulate smoking a real cigarette by its appearance, physical sensation and flavor.
Despite their popularity, E-cigarettes are still not regulated by the FDA.
