What are the differences between glo™ tobacco heater & e-cigarette?

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

You cannot use e-cigarettes and tobacco heaters as synonyms. You can read here how exactly they are different from one another.

How does an e-cigarette work anyway?

First of all, it should be said that e-cigarettes do not produce smoke, they produce vapor. Several components are important in the e-cigarette:

  • Casing
  • Battery pack
  • Tank or cap with vaporizer
  • Heating element
  • Mouthpiece

An e-cigarette is operated electrically via a rechargeable battery. This heats the so-called e-liquid in the vaporizer and aerosol (vapor) is created, which is then inhaled through the mouthpiece. In some models, the mouthpiece is built into the atomizer and is replaced together with the empty cap. Others need it to be replaced regularly.

The aerosol of an e-cigarette does not contain tobacco, but it can contain different flavors and thus resemble the taste of tobacco. An e-liquid does not necessarily have to contain nicotine, as there are also e-cigarettes without nicotine.

Difference # 2: The e-cigarette is tobacco-free

Another difference is that the e-cigarette works without tobacco. The e-liquids can only have noted similar to tobacco. Instead, a glo™ heater enables tobacco enjoyment with real tobacco. 

Difference # 3: Tobacco heaters are only available with nicotine

Electronic cigarette e-liquids may or may not contain nicotine. They are available with different nicotine strengths but also completely nicotine-free. A glo™ tobacco heater, on the other hand, always contains nicotine.

Difference # 4: Tobacco Taste: Our neo™ sticks are made from real tobacco that is heated. This creates an authentic tobacco taste.
