An electronic cigarette is an electrical device that simulates the act of smoking.
An electronic cigarette (regardless of diversity of existing models) is made up of a battery, an atomizer and a cartridge.
An electronic cigarette produces vapour that the user inhales. This is achieved through the resistance existent in an atomizer that, powered by a battery, warms up and vaporises the liquid contained in the cartridge.
DEA Flavor company specialises only in production of liquids for electronic cigarettes and neither manufactures nor sells electronic cigarettes.
DEA Flavor liquids are compatible with all models of electronic cigarettes with refillable cartridge and not compatible with disposable cartridges.
The cartridge is the part of electronic cigarette that contains vaporized liquid; in the refillable models, differently from disposable ones, once run out of eliquid you can refill the cartridge.
Liquid for electronic cigarettes produced by DEA Flavor is composed of a mixture of vegetable glycerine USP/EP, propylene glycol USP/EP, flavourings, water and, if present, nicotine USP/EP.
USP stands for The United States Pharmacopoeia and EP for The European Pharmacopoeia; both acronyms indicate that raw materials (because of their high quality standards) can be used in pharmaceutical production.
Below there is an answer that a noted physician and researcher as well as the scientific director of the European Institute of Oncology in Milan, prof. Umberto Veronesi, gave in the forum of Corriere della Sera to the question “Electronic cigarette is harmless?”
“Dear XXXXX, an electronic cigarette is absolutely harmless, especially the one without nicotine; this is demonstrated, for example, in official multicentre scientific protocol that involves three IRCCS* of Milan. Electronic cigarette can be very useful tool to begin a withdrawal process, particularly for those who have a strong psychological-gestural dependence – it is one of the fundamental components in the tobacco dependence and it is difficult to eradicate for a smoker.”

Nicotine is an alkaloid of vegetable origin, found in the tobacco plant; in smaller amounts it is also found in other nightshade family plants, for example, tomato, potato, eggplant and pepper.
Nicotine is a toxic but not carcinogenic substance that causes dependence.
Contact with a skin must be avoided while using liquids containing nicotine; for this reason you have to wear protective clothing when handling such liquid.
If it comes in contact with your skin, wash off abundantly, and when necessary contact immediately a doctor.
Filling your atomizer in 3 steps:
1. unscrew the the tip (top fill) which is at the base of the atomizer
2. squeeze the e-liquid down the side avoiding the airflow channel
3. pour 3-4 drops of liquid into the coil in order to moisten the coton
