Brexit is here. And vapers might be at least partially responsible for it.
There are, after all, 2,500,000 vapers. When we surveyed over 1,000 of these individuals, 89% of them stated that the regulations introduced by the EU on electronic cigarettes would influence their vote, and 77% were worried about EU plans for introducing taxes on e-cigarettes.
In summary, it was 9% more likely for vapers to be undecided and 18% more likely that they would vote for leaving the EU.
What is in store for vaping in the future?
Numerous vapers are getting ready to celebrate.
Vapers have, after all, been battling with the EU for many years now. And whether or not Brexit turns out to be beneficial or not, the corruption, arrogance and inability to listen as part of the process showed them to be contributing factors to leaving.
(The government didn't help either, as Anna Soubry, a UK government minister, voted accidentally to ban e-cigarettes).
However, keep in mind that we are part of the EU still, and all of the e-cigarette regulations still are in effect.
Becoming disengaged from the EU - and determining which laws should be kept and which one eliminated - is a huge task that could take many years to complete.
And vapers as well as their allies will need to keep intense pressure on if we hope to get TPD removed.
For now, the best hope is perhaps hoping the UK government will really live up to its promise of implementing the TPD in a way that is more relaxed than it normally does.
As the Minster stated: the enforcement will be more like the Italians rather than the traditionally British way of doing things. UK attitudes have fortunately changed quite a bit since the government almost banned e-cigarettes in 2010. We also have an establishment that is fairly sympathetic to vapers.
However, we still need to expect that there will be some regulations even if the TPD ends up getting removed

Electronic cigarettes are beginning to come of age as they are available in more and more flavors and varieties of packaging. For example, you don't have to just stick to a cigarette like device, but you can choose vapor devices of all sizes and shapes. If you want to be novel, go for it, it's a lot of fun.
We all know the damage that tobacco cigarettes do to our health, as lung cancer is largely due to the inhalation of tobacco smoke. It has been shown that tobacco smoke contains over two hundred known chemicals that are proven cancer causers, including arsenic and cyanide.
The tar that tobacco leave inside of a person's lungs literally destroys the alveoli, the air sacs that distribute oxygen to our blood for distribution throughout our bodies. That is the only way that we can breathe, so after a time it can get very serious.
Although e-cigs can still have nicotine as an ingredient, the negatives that we have experienced with tobacco are eliminate with electronic cigarettes. Plus the fact that we can experiment with all kinds of flavorings does make e cigarettes a lot of fun and a great way to get off of tobacco.
Electronic cigarettes are set up to heat a glycol liquid inside of the e-cig container that turns into a vapor once it is heated. The vapor acts just like cigarette smoke, and can be inhaled and exhaled, just as if the individual is smoking a cigarette.
Different levels of nicotine can be purchased and placed in the glycol liquid so that the smoker will get the same "nicotine hit" as was experienced when smoking tobacco.
There have been many people who have been able to get off of the tobacco habit by switching to e-cigarettes, without the withdrawal symptoms associated with other methods. If the persons wishes, the nicotine levels can be adjusted downward until the level

If it hasn’t been a while since you stepped into the world of vaping and you are just finding out about various types of e-cigs, atomizers and e-juices then it very likely that you would have come across the term “sub-ohm vaping”. A lot of beginners, when hearing the term for the first time, turn to the internet to find out what it actually is, why it is so popular in the vaping community, and if they are missing out on an experience related to the activity that they cherish. One major concern on the other hand usually is if the activity is safe in terms of personal health and the safety of the vaping device that you’re using.
Like another other activity that is hyped has something frowned upon, we would suggest that you ignore the controversy surrounding this act, backed up by no logical or experimental claims. If are interested and curious about the act then below is everything you would need to know about sub-ohm vaping.
What is Sub-Ohm Vaping?
Sub-ohm vaping is basically vaping with the help of an e-cig device that offers an atomizer resistance under one ohm. Ohms represent the electrical resistance of a circuit. In regular e-cigs, atomizer resistance is usually ranging between 1.5 to 3 ohms. The degree of electrical resistance offered or ohms required by the atomizer coils of an electronic cigarette or vaporizer highly influence the flavor and texture of an e-liquid. Lower the atomizer resistance, more enhance will be your vaping experience in terms of flavor. When the resistance of atomizer coils is decreased, the power output of the device increase which directly influences the flavor.
In simple words, if the resistance offered by the coil is below one ohm then more heat will be generated as compared to the coils with resistance equal or higher than one. More heat will result in more vaporization of the e-liquid at a given time which will further result in highly

Regardless of the weather, there a lot of people that enjoys spending the months of summer far away from their homes in search of fun and music. However, for the vapers that have plans to attend these festivals, an important question relates to whether you will be allowed to vape at these festivals.
In general you will be allowed to vape. However, this is usually only allowed if you are in an open space. The majority of the larger festivals like Bestival and Glastonbury don't have set guidelines which ban vaping. However, you will usually not be able to vape in the enclosed spaces. If you are not sure about the vaping rules at the next festival you plan to attend, it is suggested to contact the organizers of the festival to find out.
One part of these festival experiences is to survive without comforts you are typically used to when you are at home. So here are some tips we have put together on how to charge and clean your e-cigarette when attending a festival.
Many of the festivals can tend to be muddy or dusty and you need to know how to keep your e-cigarette clean. You can wipe down the device with water and a paper towel. It is advisable to check on the terminal that is positioned between the clearomizer or cartridge and battery to ensure that it stays clean. If this area becomes dirty or clogged your e-cigarette could stop working.
You should also keep the mouthpiece clean to ensure you enjoy the vape and to avoid mouthfuls of dirt or dust. This will also assist in ensuring your e-cigarette vapor is producing efficiently. Before you clean the device, it is advisable to disassemble the e-cigarette before you start cleaning, to avoid getting water into or on the battery.
You should also unscrew your clearomizer off the battery as well as the mouthpiece. The next

A question has been floating around the vaping community for the past few months, can vaping, a healthier alternative to smoking, pose any harm to the human eyes? Nigel Best, an optometrist and medical representative of Specsavers, an eye wear company from the UK, made some remarks on the question regarding the eye contact with e-liquid vapors and said “Although e-cigarette research is still in early stages and the long term effects are yet to be established, there are early indications that some types can cause irritation to the eyes in the form of dry eye.”
Where dry eye might sound a non-threatening term, it still raises some concerns regarding e-cig usage and eye health. The condition can advance into Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), which is usually observed in elderly people, that can, over time, result in permanent damage to central vision and the affected can lose vision in his both eyes. Optometrist, Nigel Best raised his concern saying “Age-related macular degeneration affects around 600,000 people in the UK alone.” He also added, “Smokers are more likely to form this eye condition than non-smokers. The condition is most common in people over the age of 50.”
The statements highlight some legitimate health concern, however, the people who have switched to vaping from smoking to quit their bad habit don’t have much to worry about as vaping is still way more harmless than the smoke you were dealing with during your tobacco smoking days. If you talk about the dry eye being related to an AMD diagnosis, the thing to consider is that there is no experimental claim proving the connection of vaping with any sort of eye damage. But when you talk about regular combustible cigarette smoking, there are a lot of health concerns regarding its usage and eye health, not to mention the overall damage it causes to the whole body.

A forward step made by novice vapers in the world of vaping, who feel they are ready to take things to a higher level, intermediate vapers are experienced enough to move on from their beginner e-cigs to more complex and definitely more rewarding setups. Intermediate vaping devices require a little more comprehensive knowledge about their functionality to ensure a smooth and more fulfilling vaping experience. Far longer battery life, far better flavors and thick layers of vapor clouds are some of the goods you will experience with an intermediate vaping device.
A lot of vapors mostly beginners and intermediates didn’t know anything about sub-ohm vaping about a year and a half ago but in just one year it has become one of the most famous vaping trends. It revolves around vaping with a low resistance device usually under 1.0 Ohms. The “sub-ohm coils” that have the tendency of going below 1.0 Ohm, unlike the most beginner devices, are used for this purpose. Sub-ohm vaping is famous for providing the vaper with superior flavor and comparatively higher vapor concentration and production.
Tanks & Coils
E-cig tanks that allow a smooth sub-ohm vaping experience are a new thing in the market. Latest atomizer heads that are introduced in the market can easily fire at lower resistance. It means that comparatively more power is required to ensure their proper function but the vapor flavor tastes better and the vapor production is denser. Sub-ohm tanks have evolved so much over the last few years that they are considered one of the best options in the vape market. They are kicking all the other old-fashioned designs, like the Aspire Nauti
