The liquid in an e-cigarette cartridge is atomised, and looks like smoke but without the negative effects such as carbon monoxide, tar or ash. It is made up of two parts, which screw together, the body and the disposable cartridge. The cartridges are available in three flavours—standard, menthol and mint. A starter pack is $89.50 and includes one electronic cigarette and five nicotine-free cartridges. Each cartridge lasts approximately 300 puffs or around 20 cigarettes.
