Battery Safety

Vaping is more popular than it’s ever been, and more and more people are talking about it. If you want to get into vaping then you need to know all the facts and practicing battery safety is something that needs to be made a priority.

The vape industry is advancing at a remarkable rate and we have now seen a huge range of devices hit the market from different brands from around the world. Most of these devices use an external battery to operate and while there are a number of battery sizes available. 18650 batteries are one of the most popular batteries currently used in vape mods. You need to know about and understand your batteries for vaping, not just so that you can get the most out of your vape but also for your own safety and the safety of your device.

Basic Battery Safety:

Most vape kits on the market will have Lithium-ion batteries. In many ways, they drive our society. They’re commonly used in phones, laptops, tablets and virtually anything that needs to be powered on the move. It is very important that you ensure that your batteries are safe to use. There are a number of factors that needs to be taken into account before you use your battery in your mod. Always make sure there is no damage to the battery wrap (The wrap is the thin layer of plastic which surrounds the battery). Always make sure that the battery is compatible with your device and that the batteries are authentic and purchased from a reliable source. Whatever vape device you use, they all contain batteries with the potential for danger and should be treated with care.

With anything you use that includes a battery, you need to ensure that the battery is safe. This includes ensuring that the wrap is still in good condition. If the battery wrap is peeling off, it can be dangerous as the battery body is exposed. This exposure can potentially make contact with the device, or even a set of keys or loose change in your pocket, creating a short circuit, causing your battery to vent as the flow of energy has been interrupted between the positive and negative connection. There are now wraps available on the market so you can rewrap your battery if the current one has been damaged. Alternatively use a rubber battery casing.

When charging your battery, check back regularly to see if it has finished. As soon as charging is complete, remove from the charger to prevent it from overcharging, which can cause battery failure. Batteries should always be charged on a fireproof surface, and should not be left unattended or to charge overnight.

Battery safety with regulated mods:

Vape Mods are the devices that power vaping. Anything that supplies power to an atomiser to produce vapour is a mod and will always feature a rechargeable battery that is either built in or replaceable. As the vape market grows, the use of regulated mods is becoming a popular option. These mods allow the user to easily adjust the wattage / voltage to fire up the coil regardless of what ohm it is. Although these mods include a circuit board with various safety measures to prevent shorts, as with any electronic device, they can malfunction. Here are some steps that we would advise you take to look after your battery:

  1. Handle your mod with care.

  2. Insert / take out your battery correctly

  3. Store your device safely – including locking it. All regulated mods provide a locking function.

  4. Don’t tamper with the device

  5. Don’t overcharge.

  6. Dispose of batteries safely.

Some regulated mods come with an internal battery, it is best advised that you do not tamper with this, and also that you do not overcharge it. Most quality mods have a cut-off point where they stop charging after reaching full power. When charging through a USB cable, ensure that you are using the correct charging cable, preferably the one that comes with your device. If your device charges using a USB cable, make sure the power output matches your mod. If your charger has a higher voltage than your battery, you could overheat the battery or short the device. With regulated mods that have a removable 18650 battery, ensure that you are using a battery holder after charging. When charging, ensure that you are using an authentic charger provided by a reliable electronic cigarette manufacturer.

Battery safety with unregulated mods:

Unregulated mods, typically mechanical mods, have no circuits inside and the wattage/voltage cannot be selected. These mods send all the power from the battery straight into the coils until the battery is depleted. Here, the battery amps should never be exceeded. This is fundamental, and can be very dangerous as you are trying to draw out more power than the battery can provide. To work out how many amps you will be using, take the discharge rate (the amps) of your battery, then divide this by coil resistance (ohms).

A mechanical mod will draw power direct from your battery at a rate dependent on the resistance of your coils and the standard output that that specific battery is able to provide…the power will diminish with the charge of the battery. It’s totally possible, with a low voltage battery, to have a build that your batteries are unable to fire. It’s also possible to have a battery with a voltage too high for your coil’s resistance, which will result in a catastrophic vent and possibly an explosive incident. The mech is operated through direct contact being made between the tank’s 510 pin and the battery connection, via the users inward push of the battery through the mech mod. Mechanical mods require a thorough understanding of battery ins and outs, as well as Ohms Law, to operate. Not for beginners. In the mechanical mod, the voltage translates directly into heat on your coils, provided you know the resistance of your coils and the voltage of your battery, you can make use of an Ohm’s Law Calculator to work out the average draw on your batteries.

Make New Year Resolution To Switch To E-Cigarettes For 2018

With 2017 slowly coming to a close, it is yet another time we will be making New Year resolutions. December the 31st has always been the best time of the year for everyone, with many using this time to reflect back on the achievements for the past year, and even prepare for a brighter year ahead.  If giving up smoking has always been part of your New Year resolutions for the past years, maybe it is time to try something different.

Making the switch from traditional cigarettes to electronic cigarettes could be the best decision you made in a long time. E-cigarettes with e-liquid provide the same level of satisfaction (and even more) you get from tobacco cigarettes, only that it is much safer, affordable, and tobacco-free. Vaping (using an e-cig) gives you a chance to stay away from the dozens of harmful chemicals that come with cigarette smoking. Discussed below are 4 reasons why you need to make the switch.

1. Living Healthy

You can proudly make that toast to a new year knowing you will never need to light up a cigarette again.  While an electronic cigarette eliminates many of the toxic compounds found in tobacco, it also creates an avenue for one to quit smoking altogether. E-cigarettes are particularly essential for the chain smoker who needs to smoke at least 2 packets of cigarettes every day. The e-cig not only reduces your exposure to toxic compounds and tar but also eliminates secondary smoking. You can therefore vape in the presence of other family members without risking their lives.

In addition to eliminating the toxic compounds, the tobacco smell that lingers on every smoker’s clothes will start fading off. No one will be able to tell you are a smoker unless they see you vaping. In addition to this, your oral health will be greatly improved considering you won’t be inhaling smoke anymore. Tar or smoke tainted teeth will be a thing of the past in your life after making the switch.

2. Live Green

Electronic cigarettes are considerably more environment-friendly as compared to tobacco cigarettes. Unlike traditional cigarettes that produce dozens of toxic compounds, gasses, ash, and filters, the only by-product of vaping is water vapor. In addition to this, electronic cigarettes are reusable, meaning you don’t need to toss it in the garbage bin once done. If you’ve ever been in a chain-smokers house, the first thing you’ll notice apart from the tobacco stench are cigarette butts.  According to research, cigarette butts have an almost similar effect on the environment as polythene bags. Cigarette butts, therefore, have a significant impact on natural resources and habitats such as lakes, streams, and rivers.

3. Living Rich

Although most smokers do not realize this, traditional cigarettes take up, up to 40% of their income. This is particularly evident to a chain-smoker who has to smoke more than two packets of these cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes, on the other hand, are quite cheap and affordable. While the starter pack may seem expensive for a first-timer, you will be saving much more money in the long run. A single e-cigarette cartridge contains nicotine that can last you up to a month. After acquiring the starter pack, all you will need is have the cartridge refilled, and keep the device charged up. Aside from the direct expenses, you will also be saving a lot more money in medical bills.

4. Living Free

By making the switch, you get to live a cleaner, simplified, and healthy life, even with the way you vape. You will no longer have to look for designated ‘smoking zones’ not worry about finding an ashtray in the house. In addition to this, you never have to ask for a lighter, or worry about getting a pack of cigarettes in the middle of the night. Electronic cigarettes have all these covered, leaving you to enjoy life as it is.  Another added advantage of making the switch is that; you can have/enjoy various flavors with each refill, or for the specific occasion.

Gone will be the days when you had to look for a hidden spot to take a puff, simply because you didn’t want your loved ones to be secondary smokers. Never again will the tobacco stench follow you everywhere.

The New Year gives you a chance to take control of your life once again. Giving up any bad habits and embracing positive ones is the way to a perfect life. Electronic cigarettes can help you achieve this by eliminating the need for the harmful traditional cigarettes, and even protect your lungs. You also get to throw in your two pence in taking care of the environment.

Study Shows Smokers Can Live Longer By Switching To Vaping

Researchers have recently discovered that smokers could live longer and healthier lives if they would switch to vaping.

Per their research,when calculated on a per smoker basis, the 6 1/2 million smokers in the UK/US could live an additional 87 million years if they put down the cigarettes and switched to vaping.

This study was conducted over a 10 year period by the Georgetown Lombardi Cancer Centre.

Many variables were considered by the research team while conducting the study, including potential harm from using e-cigarettes, increases in youth vaping, and the cessation rate amongst those who haven’t switched to vaping.

The Georgetown University Medical Centre posted the following findings on its website:

After taking into account different scenarios involving the potential harm of e-cigarettes as compared to normal cigarettes and other variables as well,they came up with an optimistic projection and a pessimistic projection to describe potential outcomes of switching to vaping. Even under the worst case pessimistic projection, they predict that not only will lives of smokers be extended significantly, premature deaths due to smoking related issues will be reduced as well.

Under the pessimistic projection, 1.6 million cigarette smokers who switch to vaping will live an additional 20.8 million years when calculated on a per smoker basis. The optimistic scenario projects 6.6 million former smokers will enjoy an additional 86.7 years of life.

In addition to living longer, researchers discovered that these former smokers enjoyed other health benefits as well. Not only were they living longer, they were also suffering from fewer smoking related disabilities and had fewer smoking caused diseases.

These astonishing findings were published in The Tobacco Control control. Authored in part by Dr. David Levy, an oncology professor at Georgetown Lombardi, their findings conclude that supporting a public policy of encouraging smokers to switch to vaping would yield substantial health benefits and longer lives when compared to those who continue to smoke.

This groundbreaking study was funded by The National Institutes of Health with the participation of research scientists from several universities and research groups from all across the country.

How Many People Around The World Vape?

Ever since the introduction of e-cigarettes to the open market, their use has exploded around the world. For people who vape, it can seem like a lonely practice particularly for those who do not know anyone who shares their passion. For traditional smokers, it is easy to socialize with other smokers as there is generally someone to share a cigarette with. Vape users do not have this advantage and it is common for them to not have anyone in their social circle that vapes. Fortunately, for these people, vaping is more popular than ever.

The question is how many people are actually vaping around the world today? The problem with answering this question is that vaping is relatively new and user research is still underdeveloped and thin. However, it is possible to create an estimate of the number of people vaping when looking at a range of recent statistics and sources.

How Many Vapers Are There In The World?

It is actually more difficult than imagined to present an estimate of the worldwide figures of vapers. This is due to the fact that the vaping market changes every day. There are laws in certain countries which change suddenly, impacting the number of people vaping. There are other countries that have seen an exponential growth in the number of vapers in the last few years.

To determine the number of worldwide users, you would need to turn to the CDC and Euromonitor International. According to the CDC, there are approximately 9 million vape users in the United States. According to Euromonitor International, this figure makes up 43.2% of the total worldwide vape user amount. When using these statistics, you can determine that there should be around 20.8 million vape users in the world.

This global user base is constantly growing, but it is important to note that there are regional differences. This is due to the laws and perceptions of the areas affect the ability of people to vape. This is one of the reasons why certain areas of the globe account for the majority of vape users when looking at global estimates.

How Many People Vape In Europe?

Europe actually has a very wide vaping market, but the market is driven primarily by a small number of countries. When looking at growth, the UK has the highest growth market with 2.8 million users. This amount has increased 4 times from 2012 when there were an approximate 700,000 users. E-liquid and e cigarettes has also become one of the fastest growing supermarket products in the UK and has seen a 50% increase year on year to 17.3 million units sold in the last year.

Russia now has an estimated 1.5 million vape users. This is impressive when you consider that the country was late to join the e-cigarette revolution with the first store opening in 2014. There are now over 500 vape shops in Moscow alone and over 1400 across the country. Germany is in a similar state with other 2 million vape users which is set to rise in the future.

There are other European countries that have significant user statistics as well. A recent survey in France showed that there were between 7.7 and 9.2 million French residents who have at least tried an e-cigarette. Italy has seen a steady decrease in use in 2014 and 2015, 2016 has seen an increase. There are an estimated 1.38 million regular daily users and 2.34 million general users in the country. Poland has an estimated 1.5 million users who spend around $129 million each year on related products.

How Many People Are Vaping In The Rest Of The World?

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare estimates that around 12.2% of the entire Australian population smoke daily. Of these smokers, a third or 31% of them have tried an e-cigarette at some point in their life. However, only 4.4% of the smokers in the country state that they use these devices on a regular basis. As Australia has a population of 2.94 million, this would mean that only 129,000 people in the country are regular vape users.

Relatively little is known about the use of e-cigarettes in Africa. For the majority of the continent, it is believed that there is no real vaping presence. However, the country of South Africa is a different story. This country has seen some momentum in vaping with an estimate of 200,000 users.

There is also a very small vaping and e-cigarette presence in South America. This is due to the level of restriction and regulation on vaping in most of the countries on the continent. Some of the regulations and bans include a total sale and import ban in Argentina which was started in 2011. Brazil also has a ban on the manufacturing and sale of e-cigarettes which has been in place since 2014. The sale of vaping devices and products has also been completely banned in Uruguay.

How Many People Vape?

It is impossible to get a true number of how many people vape around the world. However, it is possible to state that there are a lot of people who are using e-cigarettes every day. Even when you use conservative statistics and the incomplete information that is available, it is possible to estimate that around 20 million people in the world are vaping. While this might seem like a small amount when compared to the number of people in the world, it is not actually bad for an industry and device that is barely older than the iPhone.

London Firefighters Say Vaping Is the Safer Alternative to Smoking

For the month of “Stoptober”, the London Fire Brigade has joined forces with Public Health England in encouraging vaping with e-cigs over smoking tobacco. They take this stand because it is quite clear that electronic cigarettes are simply not the fire hazard tobacco cigs have always been.

The firefighters point out that this is not just an opinion. It’s a fact that’s backed up by solid statistics. People who quit using combustible tobacco products enjoy greater life expectancy, not only because of improved cardiovascular health, but also because they greatly reduce their risk of being consumed in a house fire.

The Fire Brigade is so sure of their decision to back e-cigs that they made a very pro-active post on their Facebook page. They declared that electronic cigarettes greatly reduce fire risk.

The post said that evidence of this statement can be found in a recent report of fire deaths in the month of September. The findings of this report were that, even though the ratio of smokers to vapers is 4-1, there are 225 times more tobacco related fires than e-cig related fires. The report also noted that the vast majority of house fires are started in the bedroom or the living room.

On London Fire Brigade’s website, their Assistant Commissioner for Fire Safety, Dan Daly, said that the statistics are absolutely astonishing. He said that they indicate that over the last three years more than 3500 fires have been caused by smoking, but only fifteen have been caused by electronic cigarettes.

He explained that the firefighters have had to put out multiple fires caused by improperly disposed-of tobacco cigarettes. He reiterated the assertion the Fire Brigade had made on its Facebook page by pointing out that stopping smoking can save your life in terms of improved overall health and prevention of the possibility of a devastating house fire.

Assistant Commissioner Daly went on to explain that smoking causes about nine percent of accidental fires, but it causes more than fifty percent of fire deaths. This is a particularly alarming statistic because the number of smokers in London has been steadily declining for the past 5 years. In 2012, 18.2% of Londoners smoked. The most recent figure stands at 15.2%.

Flaming Electronic Cigarettes Have Never Killed Anyone

On its website, the London Fire Brigade reported that there have never been any recorded injuries or deaths caused by e-cigs or other vaping equipment going up in flames. They cautioned that any electric or electronic device carries some risk of fire, and advised vapers to exercise sensible precautions, such as using the right charger when recharging and monitoring the device during charging.

The authority posted a Facebook notice thanking the Fire Brigade for its support of electronic cigarettes as a means of reducing tobacco related fire deaths. The post also reminded readers of Public Health England’s month-long, stop-smoking campaign.

The design of the E-pen clearomiser was accounted for its success as it featured a lid that safeguarded the drip tip from exposure to dirt.

Later, Aspire introduced the K1 glass tank that is compatible with the Aspire BVC atomizer head. The vertical design of the atomizer coil facilitated a larger surface area to get in contact with the wick which resulted in detailed flavor and huge vapor clouds using less energy. At this time, Aspire introduced its first starter kit that included the k1 tank, a 900mAh G-Power battery and a charging adapter.

Afterwards, Aspire started the production of e-cig products with glass and stainless steel build. The Vivi Nova evolved into a stainless steel tank featuring a glass window and was dubbed the Vivi Nova S. Around the same time, Aspire introduced the Nautilus cartomizer which featured a Pyrex glass tank and the latest BDC atomiser head. Needless to say, the performance of Aspire’s latest devices is far superior as compared to the previous inventions.

Simply E-liquid currently offers 5 advanced electronic cigarette kits by Aspire namely the Aspire Zelos 50W kit, Aspire K2 Quick start kit, Aspire X30 Rover Ecig kit, Aspire PockeX Ecig, and the Aspire K3 Quick Start kit. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, our stock has something for everyone! So do check it out!

Vaping Abroad

Do not take any chances – Take a look at our vaping guide while traveling abroad

Vaping on Airplanes

These days, vaping e-cigs on plains is not allowed. One is recommended to do it before heading to the check-in desk. At the same time, do not forget that vaping in or within some airports is not allowed. You are also required to put your e-liquid in a suitable container before boarding an airplane.

Moreover, you should keep your e-liquid tank or bottle in clear plastic. If you do not have a clear plastic bag, worry not! The airport usually supplies them. Anytime you are traveling abroad; when you buy e-liquid you should never buy more then 100ml; otherwise, you could find it taken from you.

Ensure that you have wrapped your e-cig, and any other part or spare in towels; and place them in a covered bag before despatcher. This is because the change in pressure during flight can cause the liquid container to leak.

Read And Understand The Law

Reading and understanding e-cig laws is paramount, not only in the UK; but also in other parts of the world. If you are not sure, you can always ask someone, and this should be the last resort. However, the million-dollar question is; what if you are abroad and you do not speak their language?

Well, this is where getting to know local vaping laws is very important. Did you know that there are many countries where vaping is not allowed? Brazil and Mexico are examples of countries that have banned the use of e-cigs altogether. Other countries have specific laws mentioning how large the product can be and/or places where these products should be utilized and bought.

Therefore, a person is advised to do some research before traveling off on holiday. The best place to begin is by reading our Guide To Global Vaping Laws.

Holiday Destination’s Temperature

If you wish to spend your holiday in the hottest spot or part of the world, you should look out for your e-cig. Remember, the heat is not good for the product because it may damage both the e-liquid and battery.

When e-liquid is heated, the flavor may change, which will leave you with a vape that nobody wants. The heat may also leave the e-liquid thinner than expected. This will affect the way that it’s vaporized. Moreover, the heat can hurt the nicotine in the e-liquid, which will lose its potency. Therefore, it is wise to keep your e-cig in a dry and cool place.

Some people love putting their e-liquid in the cooler to retain its freshness.

A battery in a room temperature that exceeds 38°C, will damage it. Heat affects battery’s cells. Therefore, it is wise to keep it away from direct sunlight. The sunlight is not the only source of heat; there are many sources of heat such as a hot car, location temperature, and much more.

For this reason, if you are at the beach, you may want to keep your e-cig in a plastic bag and then inside a cooler to protect it.

How To Stop Your Vape Tank From Leaking

When it comes to vaping, not much else is more frustrating than having to deal with a vape tank that leaks when you want to try out a new flavor of e-liquid. Certain vape tanks can start to leak even after you have had the e-juice in the tank for some time already. It is not only frustrating when all of the juice has leaked out, but a real headache when the e-juice has leaked out in your pocket or purse. Fortunately, there are some vaping tips to stop or prevent your vaping tank from experiencing a leak. These basic tips can preserve the eliquid in your vaping tank and save you on frustration and money.

Fill The Tank Carefully

One of the first tips on preventative measures which are able to avoid the typical causes related to leaky vape-tanks is to take care when filling the vape tank. Pay attention to where you are filling the liquid into, as it is highly possible to squirt the e-liquid into the chimney of the tank which is the area that the airflow comes from. Even a very small amount of e-juice that lands up in the chimney can result in a leak or even worse a spit back.

Don’t Leave The Tank On Its Side

In some cases it possible that you mindlessly put down your vaping device or a tank you have just filled on its side. To assist in avoiding this leak type, that is able to loosen seals in the tank. Is to always make sure the vape mod or tank is always in the upright position when you fill up the tank or when not in use.

Ensure That The Tank’s O-Rings And Seals Are Snug

If you are already practiced the above mentioned tips, and your tank still leaks, it is time to investigate the tank in order to ensure all seales are tightened and lined up. You should also check that the O-rings along with the exterior of the tank have not been damaged. A slightly loose joint can result in e-juice leaks which are able to affect whether the tank is airtight or not. It is also advisable to seal airflows when you are not using the device to prevent flooding the tank.

Clean The Vape Tank

When all the above mentioned tips have not worked, you may want to wash out and dry the tank in order to remove gunk that has accumulated in the juice chamber or air intake which may be causing the e-juice to leak out or back-up.

Air In Homes Of Vapers As Clean As In Home Of Non-Vapers

Similar Air Quality In Homes Of Vapers and Non-Vapers

Smokers, Rather Than Vapers, Have Most Air Quality Problems At Home

Recent research into the quality of air in residences indicates that the homes of vapers have air that is just as clean as that found in the homes of those who do not vape. However, the study also revealed that smoking itself did harm air quality inside homes.

Experts from the University of San Diego assessed the air quality in 300 individual homes, each of which featured no less than one smoker and one youngster under 14 years of age. Two particle monitors were placed at different spots within each of the homes. Over the course of a three-month period, these monitors worked to detect the presence of fine particles ranging from 0.5 to 2.5 micrometers. The data was transmitted to the researchers for further review.

Double The Danger

It is important to note that tiny particles including those from fungi, dust, pollen and smoke are tiny enough for humans to inhale and subsequently experience respiratory issues. Residence in which smokers lived saw double the number of these particulates, according to the study. Traditional tobacco cigarettes were found to the the most significant cause of these particulate concentrations, with candles, marijuana, incense and other substances also making contributions to the total.

However, researchers noted that they did not observe substantial differences in the particulate concentration in homes in which electronic cigarettes were used in comparison to homes in which vaping did not occur. This is a welcome development for vaping aficionados and advocates who are lobbying for increased acceptance of vaping in public spaces. This may mark a turning point in the conversation, as well.

E-Cigs Banned

In 2014, the World Health Organization pushed a comprehensive ban on indoor use of electronic cigarettes, citing serious health concerns. A report issued by the group stated that the levels of toxicants involved were simply unacceptable to bystanders who did not themselves indulge in vaping.

Interestingly, however, the governing bodies in the UK have recently touted electronic cigarettes as a useful tool for smoking cessation. The recent Tobacco Control Plan even suggested the notion of easing the Tobacco Products Directive promulgated by the EU to permit vaping within office buildings.

How To Choose Your Nicotine Levels

One of the common questions that people have when they start vaping is what nicotine level they should be using? Nicotine happens to be 1 out 4 ingredients accompanied by flavoring, VG and PG which makes up the e-liquid. Strength of the nicotine will vary from one person to the next, which means it comes down to personal preferences. However, there are ways for you to make a decision on what you will enjoy vaping. But to begin with it’s important to know what nicotine really is.

Nicotine is derived in the form of an extract from tobacco plants known as Nicotiana Tabacum. It is also found in far smaller amount in food types such as potatoes and tomatoes. The mood altering effects of nicotine vary in reports from person to person. Certain effects are associated with mood elevation, calmness and alertness. This substance is often used as a type of relaxant or stimulant. Nicotine is addictive substance and is mainly associated with the conventional cigarettes. This is the main reason as to why so many individuals find it hard to quit smoking tobacco cigarettes.

When it comes to the e-liquids which are available in a variety of stores, they are available in a number of strengths. Here is a list of the more common strengths:

  • 0% or 0mg
  • 0.3% or 3mg (Low)
  • 0.6% or 6mg (Low to Medium)
  • 1.2% or 12mg (Medium)
  • 1.8% or 18mg ( Medium to High)
  • 2.4% or 24mg (High)

These values are translated into the nicotine amount for each ml of the e-liquid. Now that you know more about nicotine and the different strengths, here is some advice on choosing the right strength. To begin with the strength you choose will depend on the type of set-up you own. For example, sub-ohm vaping or what is known as casual vaping. It will also depend in whether you are an ex-smoker or a current smoker.

Here are a few basic tips to help you decide on the right strength for your needs:


Currently there are countless choices in e-liquid flavors and many of these really taste amazing. The levels of nicotine present in the e-liquid are able to make a significant difference to the overall taste. The higher the nicotine strengths mean less flavor for you to taste. In addition, the vape is harsher when it comes to the higher levels of nicotine. It is advisable to choose the lower level nicotine levels when you sub-ohm vape, because the vapor amount produced will make everything a lot more intense.

Throat Hit

The higher levels of nicotine will provide you with stronger throat hits. When you combine this with higher PG based e-liquids the effects are intense. For this reason it is best to look out for these factors before you decide to buy. Take note that the higher PG based e-liquids along with lower nicotine levels might not satisfy your needs as an ex-smoker or smoker because these are used for stronger throat hits. For people who switch from smoking or combine smoking with vaping, throat hits that are more pronounced are more advisable.

Nicotine Addiction

It is a well-known fact that nicotine is addictive. If you happen to be a heavy-smoker it may seem the better choice to choose the highest nicotine levels when it comes to e-liquids. However, you will need to take into consideration that a vaping experience is different when compared to regular smoking and it is not always necessary to go for the highest nicotine level in order to satisfy these needs. For a person that is trying to give up smoking it is more advisable to choose one of the medium strengths and then gradually reduce the nicotine levels over time.

In conclusion, usage of nicotine is not something that should be brushed off lightly. This substance is very easy to abuse and this is particularly true when it comes to vaping. People that are new to the world of vaping should not be anxious about the amount of nicotine contained in the e-juice as dangers are often overstated. As with everything, think about the amount of nicotine you consider to be acceptable very much like alcohol consumption. Find the satisfaction level you prefer, but keep in mind that the nicotine inside the e-liquid is still a harmful substance. If you are trying to give up smoking you should set a goal on how often you would like to decrease the nicotine levels, so that you can get to a stage that you vape without nicotine.

Vaping 101: Advice For Vaping During The Summer Season

When the humidity is high and the weather is pretty sticky, it can be terrible for those who vape. We are always instructed to keep 18650 batteries away from very high temperatures, so what do you do when it is blistering hot outside and the humidity is at an all-time high? Heat can have negative effects on coils, e-juice and other parts of an e-cigarette. Here are some tips that will help you make it through the summer with minimal issues.

Keep Your Batteries Out Of The Heat

The first thing you have to remember is to keep batteries away from direct sunlight and other sources of extreme heat. There are no exceptions to this rule. If batteries get overheated, they can explode. This is why it is essential that you never leave your batteries in vehicles and other overly heated places. Even if things are not disastrous, the heat can cause damage to the battery, which means it will not last as long as you had hoped for. When you are going on extended trips, make sure that you give your battery a break now and then. This will help you conserve power. If you have a device with a built in battery, you should use a wall charger if possible. The alternative would be to charge it for short periods before you begin vaping.

Make Sure Your E-Juice Stays Cool

It is common for people to forget and leave e-juice in their vehicles even though the result can be pretty terrible. When you leave e-juice in overly hot conditions for too long, this can drastically reduce the quality. Once it becomes overheated, the liquid may become thicker than usual, which means that it is more likely to clog your tanks. Excessive heat can also have an adverse effect on nicotine levels. This can ruin the taste and make it less effective. If you notice any discoloration of your e-juice, you should probably throw it away. Avoid this in the future by removing it from places where it tends to be pretty hot.

This applies to all of the coils, tanks and juice that you have on hand. If you are headed someplace that is located pretty far, you can avoid incident by keeping them inside a cooler with good insulation.

Flavor Fatigue: Curing And Preventing It

The role that flavor plays is the important when it comes to vaping. In an ideal world, every single flavor of e-liquid would retain its fresh taste, but this isn’t how it works and not all e-liquids are created equal. In fact, there are quite a few flavors that can mess around with your perception of taste, and this is known as flavor fatigue. Flavor fatigue, or vaper’s tongue, is when you can’t tell what flavor your e-liquid is.

Vapour’s tongue actually doesn’t affect your taste buds or tongue. Plus, it is our noses that actually provides you with the taste of the e-liquid. Not many people realize that it’s not their mouth but their nose that allows them to taste the flavor.

The brain’s olfactory system is triggered when you smell something. At first, whatever you are smelling is going to be overpowering and strong, but your brain adapts. It does this to prevent your nervous system from becoming over stimulated. Eventually the brain will stop receiving the odor receptors and temporary sensory fatigue kicks in.

Picture going to a stranger’s home. At first, you may smell a funny odor. However, that funny odor starts to subside after a few minutes and eventually you won’t even notice it.

Everyone is affected by flavor fatigue in a different way. Some may experience it for a few hours or even a few days. In rare cases, people will experience it for weeks, and then they will be able to taste again. If you use the same flavors when you vape, then you will adapt and this means your e-juice will not taste the same or the flavor will just dissipate.

Dehydration can cause flavor fatigue. When we are dehydrated, then film starts to build up in the nasal passages, as well as inside the mouth and this blocks odors from getting to your olfactory receptors. If you suffer from chronic dehydration, then vaping will only make the symptoms worse, which means there’s a good chance of flavor fatigue kicking in sooner rather than later.

Preventing Flavor Fatigue

You can switch between e-juices if you want to prevent fatigue but keep in mind that you could end up spending a bunch of money on different flavors and you could spend more than you intended. Rotating between flavors will help you avoid flavor exhaustion and your olfactory senses will become sharper. If you don’t mind constantly switching your flavors, then go ahead and do it.

It’s important to drink plenty of water, preferably at least eight cups per day. If you vape regularly, then consider drinking more than eight cups of water daily. Not only that, but you should try to significantly reduce your alcohol intake because your sense of smell suffers when your blood alcohol levels rise.

Curing Flavor Fatigue

If you want to cure your flavor fatigue, then there are a few ways you can do it. You don’t have to quit vaping altogether and you don’t have to go out and search for expensive cures. In the next few paragraphs we will discuss how to cure it.

As mentioned earlier in this article, you need to stay hydrated, which means all day long you should be drinking water. Drink it while you vape too. Not only that, but exercise on a regular basis because this can help you improve your sense of smell. This is because when you workout, moisture will build up in your nose.

If you want to increase your sense of smell, then vape when you are hungry because your sense of smell is strong when you want food to eat. Consider using a humidifier too because it will increase your sense of smell. Feel free to vape while you have your humidifier on.

Your olfactory receptors may not be receiving smells because your nose is stuffy, so you should blow your nose or use a nasal spray that can unblock your nose. Make sure you speak with a pharmacist or doctor. They can tell you which one you should use.

Switch flavors if the flavors you are using are too strong or switch to stronger flavors if the ones you use are too mild. Also, you can use a clapton coil. This might give you a powerful blast of flavor, but you will have to build the coil yourself.

Smell some coffee beans because this may be what you need to get your sense of smell back. If this doesn’t do the trick, then any strong or bold scent should do it. Any coffee beans should work though.

Finally, you can shock your taste buds by eating things such as lemons, olives, sorbet and so forth. There are plenty of strongly flavored foods you can eat. If nothing seems to work, then drink some pickle juice or swish around some vinegar in your mouth, as this should shock your taste buds and improve your sense of smell.

The Best Ways To Enhance The Flavor Of Your E-Liquids

There is a vast world of e-liquid flavors out there and you will want to try as many as possible. Some of these e-liquids will have massive clouds while others will provide an intense hit to the throat. However, at the end of the day, you are looking for the taste. Vaping would not be as enjoyable if there was a lack of e-liquid flavors and there are a number of ways that you can get the most of every liquid.

Lower The Nicotine Levels

Nicotine has a taste of its own and is fairly unique. This means that the higher the nicotine level the more likely it is that the flavor is present. Higher nicotine levels will create a harsher throat hit which creates shorter drags and less flavor. If you want to enhance the flavor, you need to consider lowering the nicotine levels. Of course, this does come down to personal preference and there is a sweet spot for all e-liquids that you will need to find.

Have More PG

The flavor of the e-liquid will be greatly impacted by the ratio of propylene glycol or PG and vegetable glycerin or VG. PG is clear, thin and tasteless which is ideal in an ingredient for flavored e-liquid. The properties of PG allow the flavor of the e-liquid to be more pronounced and this ingredient is known to carry flavors well. On the other side of the ratio is VG which is sweeter and makes it harder to capture the flavor of the liquid.

Let It Steep

Steeping is something that you need to consider and this is the process of allowing the ingredients in the liquid to blend together. There are some e-liquids that can take up to 2 months to show their true flavor. However, the recommended steeping time for any e-liquid is 2 weeks.

To steep the liquid, you will need to place it in a dark cool area. If you want to speed up the steeping process you can shake the bottle and open it daily to breathe. You should test the liquid every 2 weeks to monitor this process. Shaking the e-liquid bottle for 15 to 30 seconds before using it can also help the flavors distribute evenly.

Prevent Degradation

A key factor in the loss of flavor is degradation of the ingredients. This will usually happen over time, but the way the liquid is stored can accelerate this process. Most e-liquids have an expiration date of 1 to 2 years after they were created, but the loss of flavor could be noticeable after 6 to 12 months. It is important that you store your e-liquids away from the sun and other steady sources of heat as this will prevent them from expiring faster. When you store the liquids correctly, you can maintain the flavor for well over a year.

Think About Sub-Ohming

Sub-ohming is when you vape with an atomizer that has a coil with less than 1 ohm of electrical resistance. Sub-ohming will provide more flavor because the coil-build will generally have a larger wire gauge. The more wire there is, the larger the amount of UK e-liquid that is vaporized. Your vaporizer will need to have higher wattage to complete this as a broader surface will need to be covered and more vapor created. This process will also use more e-liquid, but it will provide you with the optimal amount of flavor.

Add More Coils

Another way of increasing the surface area of your atomizer is to add more coils. When you have a dual-coil atomizer, the e-liquid will be in contact with more coils which enhances the vapor amount and the flavor. Of course, as with sub-ohming, you will need higher wattage for dual-coils which means a stronger vaporizer is needed. The battery of the vaporizer will also drain faster when you use a dual-coil atomizer.

Increase The Airflow

When atomizers are designed they have 2 purposes in mind which are increasing the vapor production and enhancing the flavor. Atomizers that direct airflow to the coils will enhance the flavor. For the best results, you need to have the air flow beneath or behind the coils leading to the drip tip.

Use Glass Tanks

The quality of your e cigarette tank will impact the taste of your e-liquid. Using a glass tank will enhance your overall vaping experience. Plastic tanks tend to reduce the flavor and you need to consider this.

There are a number of adjustments that you can make to enhance the flavor of your e-liquid. However, you need to be prepared to make some sacrifices.

The Different Benefits And Drawbacks Of Dripping E-Liquid

The Definition Of Dripping

As the vaping industry is seeing an evolution of its market with new devices, delivery systems and e-liquids being introduced on a nearly daily basis, it is important that vaper’s are aware of how to effectively use their devices. The experienced vaper will more than likely understand the method of dripping – a technique where the e-liquid is dripped onto the atomizer’s coil instead of using a tank. This popular technique is most effective when using lower coil resistance and is beneficial because it allows for increased airflow through the device; therefore, allowing an increase production of vapor volume with flavor concentration.

Despite experienced vapers considering the technique of dripping to be the “prime vaping technique”, one must question the validity of their claims. This article will approach this validity by exploring the different benefits and drawbacks of dripping eliquid.

The Different Drawbacks Of Dripping

Take a moment to consider the last time you witnessed a novice vaper attempting to drip their e-liquid. This is a rare scenario as dripping is typically used by experienced vapers and this is due to the fact that dripping is complex technique required knowledge of the skill to operate the setup. It is essential that the person have a thorough understanding of Ohm’s law, voltage, amps, watts, wires, the caliber of wicks and how all these elements apply to vaping. If misinformed or misunderstood, dripping can be a dangerous vaping technique.

As with all vaping devices, to sustain optimal performance it is necessary to perform regular maintenance to the device. When using the dripping technique it is important to take several considerations into account. For beginners, it is recommended that you use the Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer or RDA. The majority of retail shops will offer a mixture of authentic and clone RDAs ranging in cost from £20 to £100.

For the RDA to function correctly, it is necessary to use the correct materials and install the coils independently. Constructing a coil requires resistance wire, drill bits or screw drivers to wrap the coils around; as well as wicking materials, tweezers, pliers and, in certain cases, a power drill. The majority of drippers will also require an Ohm reader to review the coil resistance after assembly.

When comparing an RDA to a traditional tank atomizer where you can purchase store-bought, pre-assembled coil with some e-liquid, dripping is a far more costly and complex procedure. The initial cost of the dripping coil can be in the range of £100; furthermore, there will be the expense for cleaning, rebuilding and maintenance of the system to enjoy vaping benefits. It is important to remember that this figure does not include e-liquid, a battery or a charger.

While the drawbacks, particularly the financial drawbacks, may make you consider avoiding dripping it should be noted that there are several benefits to dripping.

The Different Benefits Of Dripping

Vaping is one of the most customisation means of “smoking” offering a plethora of options to modify, mix and match the device based on personal preference. Unless you are an indecisive individual, the ability to develop a personalized vaping system is considered one of the greatest benefits. The majority of people who engage in vaping will agree that flavor is one of the primary reasons why they vape and hand-built coils provide a greater surface area for the e-liquid to vaporize; therefore allowing more power from the device to enhance the liquid’s flavor.

Final Words On The Matter

All electronic cigarette users have a preference regarding flavor in vaping and as long as you are content with this then you can be happy with your experience. If, however, you are interested in exploring more customisation hits, do not allow the drawbacks discussed to prevent you from trying out the dripping technique. If you do attempt dripping, it is essential that you are informed and with time you will discover which method is best for your preferences and needs.

Expiration Dates And E-Cigs: What You Need To Know

The Food and Drug Administration does not yet require e liquid and e-cigarettes to have an expiration date on the package. However, a lot of these products do have one visible for buyers, and it can cause a little bit of anxiety for vapers. They are concerned that if they do not use the product before the expiration date, it will not be good any longer. The information in this article will help you learn more about expiration dates and how you can figure out whether you should vape with an e-liquid or not.

Many people have consumed a food or drink product that was past its expiration date. It is important to remember that these dates are a bit arbitrary; it is up to the manufacturer to include them on the packaging, which means that the food may be good after that date as well. Vape products are no different. No one is quite sure how long e-juice and e-cigs can last. Therefore, manufacturers make their best guess when they put on an expiration date. Essentially, they are saying that they think the product will taste the best by that date. Rather than indicating when a product will spoil, they indicate when a product will be most fresh.

How will you know if your e-liquid is no longer good? Both the color and the flavor start to change. However, if you are careful with the product and keep it in a cool place, you will likely use it before this happens. It is also essential that you keep it away from sunlight.

Not all e-liquids are created the same, which is why some will go bad sooner than others. There is a lot that comes into play here, including the amount of nicotine, the flavor, and the PG/VG ratio.

PG stands for propylene glycol, and it helps to keep products fresh. E-cigs and e-liquids that have less propylene glycol generally do not last as long. Organic products also tend to go bad more quickly.

There are e-liquids that get better the older they are. It is kind of like wine; they gain flavor as time goes on. Ultimately, the decision is yours. Every vapor is different. What works for you and what you enjoy may be very different from one of your friends. You may not have a problem using certain e-cigs and e-juices when they are beyond their “best buy” date. Other people may not share that same sentiment and choose to throw the “old” products away. As long as the color hasn’t changed, though, it is likely okay. However, if you think the taste has changed, pick up something new!

There are a lot of different e-juices available, so it is quite easy to pick out something you will enjoy!

A Beginner’s Guide On How To Avoid A Dry Hit

Imagine this scenario: you are waiting for an e-liquid to arrive and have been anticipating its arrival for over one week.  You are certain this will be your new all-day vape liquid and are full of excitement regarding its arrival.  When the e-liquid finally arrives, you tear the packaging open and a shiny 30ml bottle of the e-liquid stands before you ready to be vaped.  Prepared with a new vaping coil, you unscrew the lip and fill the e-cigarette’s tank.  Placing the tip of the e-cigarette in your mouth, you take a deep breath expecting to inhale a sublime e-liquid; however, the anticipation of joy suddenly turns into a sensation of outrage as you realize this is not what you have ordered.

 Comparable to the possession of a faulty Xbox that will not turn on; you just received a dry hit!

While this scenario is nowhere near any life or death situation, to a vaper it can be an excruciating experience.  Fortunately, there are various techniques available to avoid such situations; however, to understand how to avoid dry hits it is important that one first understand what a dry hit is.  This article will discuss what a dry hit is and the methods available to avoid experiencing this situation.

Old Coil Rules

Take a moment to consider the last time you changed your e-cigarette’s coil.  The average lifespan of a vaping coil is between one to two weeks; therefore it is important that regular changes are performed.  Elements such as frequency of use, power settings and the ingredients in the e-liquids can influence the durability or lifespan of the coil, so sooner or later you will need to discard the old one and bring in a new one.  However, do not dispose of the coil just yet as there are various other aspects that can result in dry hits.

Seeing A Tank Half Full

In many cases, novices in vaping do not understand the amount required in their e-liquid tank to effectively operate an e-cigarette.  One of the most common causes of a dry hit is when the individual attempts to vape with an empty tank.  The solution for this situation is simple; merely fill the tank with a suitable amount of e-liquid.  It is essential that the liquid is of an appropriate amount because you do not want to flood the tank.

Stop, Saturate And Listen

In today’s society, the concept of instant gratification is rife among almost all individuals.  This means that when a person wants something, they want it now and will do anything to get it.  However, when it comes to the new e-liquid flavor you discovered in reviews, it is best to wait before trying it.  While you may be eager to vape the liquid once it is in your tank, it would be more beneficial if the coil is first primed so the cotton is able to effectively absorb the e-liquid.  Preparation is important if you want to avoid a dry hit.

How does this work?  To prepare for vaping a new e-liquid, it is recommended that you allow the e-cigarette or vaping device a five minute break before use.  This will ensure the coil becomes saturated with the new liquid by allowing the new e-liquid to “sit”.

No Need To Head H.A.M.

To experience extreme hits with optimum flavor, vapers considered power-vapers will push their vaping devices to the limit attaining maximum wattage.  A power-vaper is constantly pursuing the most intense type of vaping experience and while this may result in excellent experiences, it is recommended that one reduce the “push” from time to time.

The fact of the matter is that not all e-liquids and vaping devices are created to support extreme amounts of power, as is the case in power-vaping situations.  In many cases, the atomizer will heat up quickly thereby disallowing the e-liquid to saturate the coil before being vaporized.  To resolve this problem all you need to do is lower the voltage settings on the device, adjust to a suitable power level and you are “good to go”.  After all, e-cigarettes are not the same as hookahs and inhaling as if it is your last chance to inhale is unnecessary.  Take it easy and you can avoid experiencing the detrimental or devastating dry hits.

No Joy For Excessive Chain Vapers

Chain vapers will present with rapid puffs in close succession and this is not a good idea for various reasons.  While chain vaping can result in dry hits, it is also impossible to truly enjoy the vaping experience as you are unable to savor any e-liquid flavor.  The best way to deal with this situation is to slow down and wait a few minutes between each vaping puff.  If the dry hits continue, try putting the vaping device down for a few minutes and then attempt to vape again.

No Adjusting Of Airflow

Due to advancement in the vaping industry, vapers have seen a massive growth in the innovation of feature-rich vaping devices.  The more advanced options are now equipped with accessories such as adjustable airflow settings that allow the vaper to control the airflow of the vaping experience.  While this is highly beneficial, if not managed correctly it can produce adverse results and be a downer instead of an upper.  For example, repetitive vaping with the tank’s air holes being fully open can lead to a drying out of the coil’s wick.  Should you encounter this issue, try adjusting the air holes or covering them with your fingers.

Advantages Of E-Cigs

E-cigs or electronic cigarettes are the latest craze among smokers. As prices for tobacco cigarettes increased a lot over the past few years, more and more smokers realize they throw a lot of money on the window by smoking, therefore they seek for alternatives to allow them get their nicotine fix without breaking the bank. One of the best solutions are the electronic cigarettes, battery operated devices that work by vaporizing a flavored liquid which contains a certain percentage of nicotine.

There are many positive online reviews from people who switched to e-cigs. They all find them better than regular tobacco cigarettes because of several advantages, as we are going to see from this article.

1. Price

Although the price of an electronic cigarette is not extremely small, after the initial purchase, the cost per day decreases dramatically. Consumables are cheap, the e-liquid needed for one month of consumption costs as much as the real cigarettes for one day of smoking. Even if you go for replaceable nicotine cartridges which are a bit more expensive, you still save a lot of money compared to your usual smoking habit.

2. Convenience for the others

If you smoke traditional cigarettes inside a house, you force everybody to become a passive smoker. It is already known that passive smoking can be very daunting, therefore you expose your friends and family to health hazards they could have prevented if they didn’t have to inhale second hand smoke. Electronic cigarettes work with vapors, therefore there’s no smoke, so no risk of developing associated diseases.

3. Adjustable nicotine dose

E-liquids come in various nicotine concentrations. This allows people who want to get rid of their nicotine addiction to start high, then gradually decrease the dose, until they reach a point where they buy e-liquid with zero nicotine content. For there, they can even quit smoking for good, because their body doesn’t crave for nicotine anymore. This method is easy because it allows you to set your own pace of decreasing the nicotine percentage, thus eluding those nasty withdrawal symptoms.

In order to make the most out of your vaping experience, it is best to follow the advice you find in many reviews and buy a good quality starter kit. After you get used to this new experience, you’ll start enjoying variations brought by different flavors of e-liquids and by different colors and shapes of the electronic cigarettes. You’ll be able to choose a style that suits you, thus making the e-cig your distinctive signature. You’ll learn about the advantages of having an extra battery always charged and ready to replace the one that has just gone flat. You’ll decide whether you want to go for the lower price and the flexibility offered by rechargeable e-liquid cartridges or you prefer the convenience offered by disposable ones that are so easy to replace when they are finished.

Vaping is gaining in popularity so fast, that even big tobacco cigarette manufacturers started to produce their own e-cig brands.

Making The Switch

According to a recent study conducted by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, electronic cigarettes are the go-to tool for people who want to find an alternative to smoking.

One evidence is the strong correlation between the decrease in the number of tobacco smokers and the prevalence of electronic cigarettes. This doesn’t mean the research should stop here. Further information must be gathered to help individuals make informed decisions about what’s best for their health and lifestyle.

The study involved participants in the US, spanning the years 2014 to 2016. Fifteen thousand tobacco smokers were evaluated, with the goal of figuring out the best aid when it comes to smoking cessation. Other than electronic cigarettes, the participants were provided with cessation aids including gums and patches.

Based on the results, it has been proven that electronic cigarette users are able to cut down on their use of traditional cigarettes a lot more compared to those who used other cessation aids. Some users even switched entirely to e-cigarettes.

There’s a growing body of research within the scientific community showing the effectiveness of e-cigarette use in terms of helping people to switch or stop altogether.

A contributing factor to this might be the continuous growth of the vaping industry. A BIS Research report predicts that e-cigarettes and other related vaping products will have a global marketing share amounting to $46.9 billion by 2025. In 2015, the global market share was approximated at $8 billion. Given these figures, it shows that the industry will see a 19.34% compound annual growth rate over the next decade.

It’s useful to look at statistics, but nothing can replace hearing from real-world experiences by e-cigarette users. This short film tells the stories of people from different walks of life who have succeeded in quitting smoking with the help of e-cigarettes.

Take time to watch the video, which is one of the most powerful we have seen about vaping and the benefits it brings to users.

Your Guide To Vaping At Festivals

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 step involves pouring water inside the clearomizer until half full. Now close the top with your thumb and shake the clearomizer for a couple of seconds before you empty out the water. Make sure you wipe down all the pieces before you reassemble the device. If taking the time to clean your e-cigarette is not on your agenda you can also buy a 2nd clearomizer and then switch them out when the first one becomes dirty.


There are a few festivals that provide hubs where you will be able to charge your e-cigarette or mobile phone. You may want to arrive early so that you don’t end up wasting time in long queues. Make sure you pack extra cartridges, e-liquid and batteries to avoid running out while at the festival. Bring along your e-cigarette case so that you can store your USB cable and spare batteries.

The majority of e-cigarettes typically hold their charge for a number of hours if you charged the device fully before you leave for the day. Between uses make sure you turn the device off so that you don’t run out of charge during the day.

E Cigs as an Alternative

There is recent evidence that E cigarettes are safer to use than traditional tobacco products. However, it should be noted that the benefits and the risks of using E cigarettes are still investigation and therefore the consumer will need to decide on his own. The reason for this is because of the lack of conclusive evidence there is insufficient information to make a final conclusion.

However, there is one aspect to E cigarettes that is undeniable. They are safer to use, less expensive, odorless, healthier, and more socially acceptable. The evidence against the dangers of long-term tobacco use is undeniable. In fact, the cigarette companies now need to put warning information about the dangers of smoking on their packages. Scientific tests have proven beyond a doubt that continued use of tobacco products will result in a premature death.

One of the hardest things that a person can do is to quit smoking. Many researchers state that is harder to quit smoking that it is to quit using drugs such as cocaine, speed, and crack. Whether this is true or not the fact remains that it is very difficult to break the habit of cigarette smoking.

Many people have tried to quit their tobacco habit only to fail over and over. One of the reasons for their continual failures is that they fail to find an appropriate alternative to their tobacco addiction. This is where E cigarettes have an advantage over other alternatives such as chewing gum or eating mints. E cigarettes are more successful as an alternative to tobacco products because they offer the smoker some similar sensations. Some of the similar sensations are the vapor that E cigarettes produce, being able to hold something in your hand, and the perception of still enjoying a cigarette.

There are many benefits to switching from tobacco products to E cigarettes. One of the benefits is the social aspect of smoking tobacco. In today’s society, smoking cigarettes or using any tobacco products is considered negative. There are many reasons for this negative perception of smoking. One of the main negativities associated with cigarette smoking is the effect of secondhand smoke.

Secondhand smoke has been proven to be as deadly as smoking itself. There have been many recent studies that prove that those who are exposed to secondhand smoke will be exposed to future health issues. As a result of this type of information the majority of non-smokers do not appreciate being in the same vicinity as a smoker.

This aversion to secondhand smoke by non-smokers makes it socially unacceptable for smokers to smoke in public. There are many restaurants and government buildings that do not allow cigarette smoking. Besides the actual health consequences there is also the concern of the smell. Cigarettes smell terrible and this has been confirmed by many people for years.

Cigarette smell has a way of lingering in a room or on your clothes for a long period of time. It is easy to spot a smoker because of the smell associated with cigarettes. One of the main reasons why cigarettes smell so bad is because of all of the chemicals and tar products that they put into a cigarette. Therefore, a smoker is socially unaccepted into private homes and social gatherings.

It is evident by the increasing amount of restrictions where smokers can light up. There was a time where you could have a cigarette virtually anywhere including hospitals. Now however, most companies and businesses relegate a small dingy room to those who need their daily fix. Due to all of these issues many smokers are switching to E cigarettes as an alternative to using tobacco products.

The Life Saving Transition – Switching From Smoking To Vaping

More and more smokers are switching to vaping or inhaling flavored vapor via an electronic cigarette. If you currently smoke, then consider switching to vaping, which is becoming increasingly popular around the world. There are many benefits of choosing vaping over regular cigarettes, and here’s a few of them.

1. It’s Affordable

Do you want to save money? If so, then switch to vaping. Vaping costs much less than smoking regular cigarettes.

2. Odorless And Smokeless

Vaping doesn’t require combustion and this is because the vapor is created when the liquid is heated. Vaping is also smokeless, which means you don’t have to worry about the same issues that you experience with regular smoking, which includes second-hand smoke that can put people near you in danger. Not only that, but you won’t have to worry about the smell of smoke.

If you vape in your car, then you don’t have to worry about your upholstery smelling of smoke. Since there’s no lighters involved, you don’t have to worry about causing an accidental fire. It’s worth pointing out that one of the major causes of home fires is smoking.

3. The Ingredients

Tobacco can contain harmful chemicals. Many chemicals are carcinogens, but this is not the case with e-liquids. Most liquids are made with only a handful of ingredients, which includes flavoring, nicotine, water and propylene glycol.

4. Nicotine Control

There are e-liquids that are nicotine-free flavored. There are also versions that contains different amounts of nicotine. If you want to control your nicotine habit, then you can choose the appropriate concentration of nicotine when you make the switch to vaping.

5. Flavors

Cigarettes are tobacco flavored, and there may be a few menthol blends to choose from, but in short they are only available in a single flavor. As for e-liquids, you have hundreds and hundreds of flavors to choose from, which includes root beer, Chai Tea, caramel mocha latte and popcorn to name a few. There’s also a number of herbal compounds, and there are liquids that are available in tobacco flavor. All you have to do is try out a few flavors and then decide which ones are your favorite, but feel free to try as many flavors as you want.

Choosing A Vaping Device

Many people find that making the switch is natural and one of the reasons is because vaping devices resemble regular cigarettes. A lot of people start off with minis, which is an electronic cigarette that is lightweight and it’s the same size as a regular cigarette. It’s available in two models, one being a rechargeable model and the other being a disposable model. The way it works is the vapor is drawn into the mouthpiece and then the battery is powered on, and then the e-liquid becomes vaporized.

Vaping kind of resembles smoking. For example, rechargeable minis can be charged in a device that looks like a pack of cigarettes, and many people actually mistake minis as being real tobacco. Not only that, but when you vape, you will be receiving nicotine, just as if you were smoking a regular cigarette.

Sure, making the switch may seem unfamiliar at first. However, for most people the transition is easy and feels completely natural. What you should do now is check out a vaping store and decide which device and flavors you should get.

Choosing The Right Nicotine Strength

So, you have made the decision to quit smoking cigarettes and to start vaping. Good for you! That is the first step in making the right decision. The next thing that you need to start thinking about is the nicotine strength as it is one of the most crucial things to consider either as a veteran vaper or first-timer. For your sake, we have made a list of tips that should make it easier for you to choose a nicotine strength that suits your needs.


If You Are A Smoker

Most smokers who’ve switched to vaping normally start off using an e-cig since they require a much higher level of nicotine that is similar to the type of cigarette they used to smoke. Smokers usually start out with 1.8% or 18mg nicotine, be it in a high-PG e-juice or in a disposable e-cigarette. Please note: We recommend that smokers start off with high-PG vaping juice for throat hits like cigarettes.

Casual or light smokers should consider trying lower nicotine levels of high-PG vaping liquids. Our signature Premium and WOW juice comes in seven different nicotine levels, including 0.8%/8mg and 0.4%/4mg, that are ideal for light smokers.

With plenty of options to choose from, finding the perfect nicotine strength should not be a problem, even if you are a heavy smoker. People who smoke quite heavily tend to enjoy a nicotine strength of 10.1mg or higher. We offer 36mg, 24mg, and 18mg as well, strengths that are perfect if you are used to smoking fully-flavored cigarettes.

If you are a Vaper

If you have been vaping for some time now but still want to enjoy that feeling of smoking a cig, then consider using a higher nicotine strength with high-resistance coils and low-wattage mod to get the throat hit you crave for.

If you use a box mod to vape, consider filling your tank with a high-VG vaping juice with a lower nicotine strength, more so if you are sub-ohm vaping. The same applies for RDAs, and high wattage mods since too much power could create a much higher nicotine level that may end up giving you an unforgiving throat hit.

If you do not want nicotine

If you do not want any nicotine, then you will be glad to know that there are e-liquid makers like Simply E-Liquid, and others, who sell zero-nicotine vaping juices. These vaping liquids are best for smokers who’ve tapered their nicotine intake down but want to maintain the hand to mouth process of smoking. These juices are also great for casual vapers who do not want to consume any nicotine.
