A new e-cigarette, which uses a nicotine-containing cartridge, has been approved by Italy’s government, according to a report by the media agency ANSA.
Smoke e cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, are often used in Europe to help smokers quit and reduce their nicotine consumption.
Smokers are also encouraged to switch to other products, including smokeless tobacco and vaporisers.
However, they can also be used to buy tobacco products.
An e-cig has a cartridge, which has a battery, and a battery can be connected to a heating element, a portable electronic device or an electrical outlet.
The battery can store the nicotine and a chemical called propylene glycol, which gives the e-cigs nicotine.
E-cigarettes are currently sold in Italy, Austria, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, the Czech Republic and the UK.
