    Nice Review. I like the fact that someone is trying to think outside of the box with the atty design.While Electronic cigarettes look, feel and taste much like traditional cigarettes, they function differently. You see, electronic cigarettes do not actually burn any tobacco, but , when you inhale from an e-cigarette, you activate a “flow censor” which releases a water vapor containing nicotine, propylene glycol, and a scent that simulates the flavor of tobacco.
