E-cigarettes are electronic devices that mimic the act of smoking a cigarette, without the worries of tar and (if you purchase the right juice) nicotine.
It consists of a rechargeable battery (the 'tobacco' end), a small heating element, and the cartridge (the 'filter' end). The cartridge has a cotton filter inside of it that is saturated with a liquid, or 'juice', that are typically made of Propylene Glycol, Glycerine, or a combination of the two, with a flavoring, and nicotine, although there are liquids available without it.
The heating element vaporizes the liquid, and that is what you inhale and blow out. There are also models that allow you to smoke via USB cable, if it can be believed.
Typically, the cartridges can be refiled several times before they need to be replaced.
E-cigarettes also do not fall under the umbrella of smoking bans, since the vapor does not contain carcinogens, so you can smoke, or 'vape' them in places that are non-smoking, without fear of reprisal.
A starter kit for a quality model can run 30-80 USD, but the cost of maintenance and refills decline considerably after the initial investment. For a one-pack-a-day smoker, you can generally expect the costs of 'vaping' to be 2-3 USD a week, and even less if you reuse the cartridges.
There are many resources online available to the aspiring 'Vaper,' including forums very similar to this one. A simple Google search will find them. It's recommended to do your research on them before purchase, because the variety of models is staggering.
Hope this helps you out.

you're inhaling vapors of Propylene Glycol, Glycerine, or both.

Dude the only way to experience the flavour without smoking is to go to the source. You like watermelon flavoured shisha then eat a watermelon, you like mint have some gum etc.

you haven't explained what kind of effects your experiencing from the hookah smoke.

It could be the charcoal the Shisha cafe's use (some actually use quick-lights)... or it could be your taking to many tokes on a shisha pipe, try reducing them and see how you feel.

or it could even be the odd cold or flu that goes on for weeks

also about the e-hookah, if you could get good smoke and Flavour out of it and also if it lasts an hour!!.. it could be good for UK Shisha cafes to avoiding the smoking ban (e.g e-hookahs inside, tobacco-hookahs outside)

e-cigs have as many flavors of juice as shisha has flavors. However, I only recommend them for folks like myself, long time smoker who wants an alternative to cigarettes.

Also note, the PG and VG causes reactions in some folks as well so ultimately, I recommend Chewlies gum. And no, I;m not a Chewlies gum representative.
