Most run on a rechargeable battery, with a variety of charging methods available depending on the model.

How It Works
The e-cigarettes utilise a piece of technology called an atomiser. The atomiser works by heating the nicotine liquid within the e-cigarette to the point of vaporising. The vapour is then inhaled, as you would an actual cigarette. Although the vapour is practically scentless and there is no physical smoke, as of 2011, many businesses have the same rules in place for e-cigarettes as real ones.
As of 2011, there are three primary types of e-cigarettes on the market. First is the pen style, which was the first model on the market. This model looks as is sized much like a pen, and due to weight and size, it has limitations and has largely been disbanded by companies as of 2011. The second style is the mini, which is the most common e-cigarette on the market. This style is the shape and size of an average cigarette. The third style is called the super mini e-cigarette. This is similar to the mini e-cigarette, but only about half the length.
Disposable Atomizer Types
Certain brands have a two-piece design, with the atomiser being built into the "filter" of the cigarette, which is disposable. These atomisers have the liquid built in, so there is no need for filling these. This design avoids the build-up of gunk from the vapour that some other models have. Brands that have this two-piece design with the disposable atomiser include The Safe Cig, Green Smoke and V2 Cigs. Safe Cig offers only three flavours, all based on actual cigarette tastes, in efforts to curb interest in children. The V2 Cigs come in the standard mini length, and the super mini size as well. Green Smoke offers five levels of nicotine, while The Safe Cig and V2 Cigs offer four levels.
Premium Electronic Cigarette
The brand Premium Electronic Cigarette offers a variety of options for electronic smoking, including e-cigars, e-cigarettes, e-pipes and even one-use disposable e-cigarettes. For their reusable cigarettes, the company offers 19 flavours of refillable cartridges from which to choose. The cartridges also are offered in five nicotine strengths.
Known for their sleek design and blue LED tip, Blu brand e-cigarettes offer replaceable cartridges that recently had an atomiser added. They also have available a unique pack, about the size of a pack of cigarettes, which holds your Blu E-Cig and cartridges. This pack charges the Blu on the go, right in your pocket or purse. The Blu features five nicotine levels.
