Why does the GSTHR use ‘vaping product’ as well as ‘e-cigarette’?

We recognise that many people use the term e-cigarette. However, we prefer the terms ‘vaping product’ or ‘vaping device’. ‘E-cigarette’ is too easily confused with the idea of smoking a cigarette. The most important innovation of vaping devices is they do not emit toxic smoke, but substantially safer vapour.
