Invention of Vaping
The journey of modern vaping started in 1927. It was a patterned design of a machine which is considered the first electric vaporizer. The device was actually a medical which was designed for inhaling vapor effortlessly.
After a long while, a person named Herbert Gilbert drew a new blueprint of a device in 1963. He named it “smokeless” and surprisingly the device was almost similar to a modern vape pen. He claimed that Smokeless was able to provide a smoking experience without tobacco leaves. Though the idea seems cool, luck didn’t favor Gilbert. Without a doubt, the device was revolutionary, but his project stopped due to insufficient funding. Besides, manufacturers didn’t find the device profitable.
Finally, the first vape pen was introduced by a Chinese pharmacist named Hon Lik. He invented a complete e-cigarette which is called Cig-a-like. The device is still available and it seems like traditional cigarettes.
Evolution of modern vaping
After the invention of cig-a-like, the vaping industry has evolved gradually. It has gone through several generations as below.
