After all, it is combined with the electronic cigarette. Of course, smoking, including electronic cigarettes is a bad habit, which it is not necessary to acquire, even for the most attractive and fashionable gadget. This devayse most interesting is that it is a combination of two seemingly very different modern gadgets. As noted earlier, conventional cigarette butts can be used to create capacitors.
