E-cigarettes (sometimes called vape-pens or e-hookahs), are battery-powered devices that produce an inhalable aerosol from a heated liquid. Available in thousands of flavors some devices can be refilled and recharged, while others are inexpensive and disposable, appealing to youth.
The Vermont Department of Health advises against the use of e-cigarettes.

E-Cigarettes and Quitting Tobacco
E-cigarettes have not been approved by the FDA as a smoking cessation device.
