Holiday Travel and Vaping

Vaping and TravelTraveling for the holidays? Hitting the roads or the air to see your loved ones during the happiest time of the year? Blasting off for an end of the year vacay? Here’s the breakdown on what you need to know for traveling with e-cigs. They do make travel better than traditional cigs, and it goes even better when you’ve planned ahead.

How to Pack:

Packing your e-cigs correctly is an essential. It’s okay per the TSA to bring your e-cigs and accompanying gear along in your carry-on luggage, and that is the safest place to ensure they remain undamaged. Figure out how many cartridges you go through per week, figure out how often you need to charge batteries, and this will help you map out your quantities and limits on vaping. We can’t stress how important it is to know your habits!

Bring Extras:

Extras are imperative, because as you know with traveling, you should be prepared for anything, especially during this time of year when snow storms can cause major delays and cancellations. And, you most certainly can’t depend on being able to grab what you need any and everywhere! So pack extras to make sure during the madness, you’ve got what you need to keep things under control. Extra cartridges, extra batteries, extra chargers; catch my drift? You will probably need them!

Accessorize Accordingly:

A PCC can be your BFF. It charges your batteries on the go, no outlet necessary. In fact, it’s like a mobile outlet in your pocket! So, the minute you saunter off the plane, you will be able to whip out a fully charged, ready-to-vape e-cig!

And just as a reminder, when you’re flying high in the sky, don’t make any attempts at becoming part of the vaping mile high club; smokeless cigarettes are not permitted for use in aircraft! Happy holidays, and happy safe travels from everyone here at EverSmoke!

The Deal with Diacetyl

Sensient-Flavors-says-it-is-addressing-worker-health-and-safety-issues_strict_xxlRecent discussions of e-cigarettes and what is contained in e-liquids has been centered on a substance known as diacetyl. Diacetyl is a chemical typically used to impart a buttery flavor, and though it is regarded as safe for ingestion, it is absolutely not when inhaled.

Because of the info regarding diacetyl as unsafe for inhalation, many anti-e-cig media outlets have been assumptively, and erroneously, reporting that all electronic cigarettes contain this substance, based on the World Health Organization’s findings, in an effort to continue the negative stereotype that surrounds e-cigarettes. What they fail to realize and report upon is, is  that not all brands use the chemical as a flavoring, EverSmoke being among them.

In fact, on a test of a variety of brands of e-liquid to see if they contain diacetyl, done on a TV program in the UK, only 1 of the 4 tested contained the substance! 1 in 4!

So, the big deal with diacetyl in e-liquid is that it is linked to a horrific lung disease known as “popcorn lung,” or bronchiolitis obliterans. It can occur after prolonged exposure to diacetyl that has been heated and inhaled. It affects the bronchioles, causing them to be obstructed and inflamed, restricting airflow, making breathing difficult, and coughing and wheezing prevalent.

Currently, researchers are studying the effects of diacetyl, and testing different brands’ liquids to determine whether they contain the substance, and what effect it is having. Dr. KE Farsalions, a prominent European physician who has done many studies on the effectiveness and benefit of electronic cigarettes, has lead the research on diacetyl. In a presentation he did at the Global Forum on Nicotine in Warsaw this year, Dr. Farsalions sampled approximately 160 different e-liquids, mostly manufactured in Europe, in an effort to show what the exposure to diacetyl is exactly for vapers, particularly on a daily basis.

The outcome if this study showed that 74% of the e-liquids he tested contained some diacetyl, most often found in sweet liquid flavors. Even more disconcerting, however, was that a great number of these sweeter liquids contained levels of diacetyl that were higher than the safety limits were supposed to be. Even still, however, the range is anywhere between 10 and 100 times less than the exposure from traditional cigarettes.

So that is the current situation with diacetyl and vaping. Pick and choose your products wisely, and ultimately opt for a brand like EverSmoke, that is committed to keeping the diacetyl fake butter flavor out of our products! And for those of you who are scientifically-inclined, you can check out Dr. Farsalion’s study here (PDF download).

Love Your Pets? Don’t Expose Them to Smoke!

e2fd420ce98c185c73e5a3cadd2995a5If you are a smoker, have you ever considered the ways your tobacco smoke can affect your pets? After all, second hand smoke is not just an occurrence that negatively harms people! If you are into smoking at home, in the company of your furry friends, consider making the switch to vapor cigarettes to keep them free from the effects of smoke, as well as to keep them happier in their day to day lives. Keep reading to learn about the ways smoke can be your worst enemy when it comes to protecting your pets!

Tobacco smoke affects the human body in the most negative ways, and just about any other body exposed to its assault. Among the most vulnerable are your pets however, since they can’t make decisions for themselves to avoid breathing in the smoke, nor can they make the necessary changes needed to assure their safety regarding smoke exposure, it is our responsibility to do it for them. And one of the best and easiest ways to do this is by swapping your traditional cigarettes for smoke-free, tar-free, tobacco-free e-cigs.

Some of the ways cats and dogs can be affected by continuous subjection to smoke are allergies, breathing issues, (just like people) and a variety of different types of cancers, the chance of which increases depending on how often they are exposed to cigarette smoke. In addition, dogs can experience allergic dermatitis as a result of cigarette smoke exposure, which causes severe inflammation of the skin.

Another aspect of concern is that cats who are exposed to cigarette smoke can be victims of third-hand smoke, caused by the particles of smoke and tar clinging to their fur, which they ingest from grooming themselves.

Cigarette smoke exposure can also have deadly consequences to pet birds, who are unable to tolerate the smoke. Pneumonia, lung cancer, skin problems, infertility, heart problems, as well as skin and eye problems are all common occurrences for birds who are exposed to secondhand tobacco smoke.

Pretty scary, right? All creatures, human and otherwise deserve clean, smoke-free air to breathe, and when it comes to your pets, make the smart choice with vapor cigs, knowing you will no longer be subjecting your fur babies to unwanted smoke, tar, carcinogens and countless chemicals they can’t avoid. Clean air is better for all parties involved.

What is the Deal with Teens and Vaping?

Teen Use of E-CigsOne of the areas that concerns legislators and lawmakers most, on the subject of electronic cigarette products is that which regards usage by those who are underage, most often teens. The FDA recently ruled in favor of laws that prohibit minors from purchasing the alternative products, among the first e-cigarette regulations to come into effect nationally.

So what is the deal with e-cigarettes in the mainstream? Are teenagers even interested in them? Are they using them more voraciously than cigarettes? Do e-cigs really pose a problem that causes concern about teens becoming hooked on nicotine?

Teenagers have long been drawn to experimentation, and the majority of adult smokers picked up the habit during their teen years. Whether a result of rebellion or pleasurable escape, teens always have and always will be looking to test limits – be it their parents’, schoolteachers’, or those in place by society; cigarette usage among youth has always been a hot button topic. Even though tobacco companies marketed their products to impressionable young people in decades past, this practice has long been halted. Over the past 20 years, cigarette usage among minors has been on dramatic decline, especially when it is considered how unfashionable smoking has become. Less teens are looking at smoking as a cool way to rebel and create an image.

As recently reported by Forbes, the most recent statistics on high school students smoking, shows numbers that have fallen from 15.8% to 12.7%, which are the lowest numbers ever. While the usage of e-cigarette use by high schoolers has rose, from 1.5% to 4.5%, which includes those teens who have used a vapor cigarette at least once within a 30-day period, it is being looked at as less negative and rather encouraging. It is a suggestion that high school smokers are interested in alternatives, and are using electronic cigarettes instead of traditional cigarettes as a means to stop using tobacco.

If teen tobacco smoking is declining at great numbers, and teens in general are not interested in smoking, yet are turning to electronic cigarettes as alternatives, it is clear that vapor smoking is not serving as a gateway to traditional smoking for impressionable youth as anti-smoking groups claim.

To put it bluntly, the electronic cigarette industry aims to market and sell their products exclusively to adults over the age limit, and as teens will inevitably get their hands on things they have no business with (traditional and electronic cigarettes alike), vapor cigs are not luring teens into lifelong smoking habits.

How to Choose a Battery

Choosing an E-Cig BatterySo you’re sure you want to switch to vapor cigarettes from traditional, but you’re stuck on how to choose an e-cigarette battery. You’ve got choices: small, medium, and large; also known as Mini, Standard, and High-Capacity, and just like their incremental size would lead you to believe, different size means different capabilities.

Similar to AA or AAA batteries with a slight difference in size and shape, EverSmoke e-cig batteries are rechargeable lithium ion batteries. Typically charged with a USB cable, they also can be powered up with a Personal Charging Case, a wall adapter as well as a car adapter.

EverSmoke Mini E-Cigarette Battery

The Mini is, well, mini. In price, in power, charging time, and lasting time through charges, this battery gives you the whole experience in a bite-sized format. It goes from 160-175 puffs before needing to be charged. The expected lifespan is from 40,000 and 43,750 puffs. Sometimes a small size is exactly what you need, and it is the perfect battery for vapers who are on the go.

Standard E-Cigarette Battery

The standard size battery can be looked at as the middle ground. It is medium sized, has a great amount of power, can last between 200 and 250 puffs, and it has a nice moderate size about it. These take around 2 to 3 hours to charge up to full capacity, and the overall lifespan is about 50,000 to 62,500 puffs.

High-Capacity

When you need a high-capacity battery, this is the one for you. The larger the size, the higher the electrical charge rating, and the ability to have a battery that goes a bit longer is exactly what some people mean need. This battery costs slightly more then it’s more counterparts, but you get more overall. The High Capacity battery goes up to 350 puffs per charge, and the overall lifespan is typically around 87,500 puffs.

Different sizes accommodate different needs and preferences, so it is always our suggestion that you have more than one size to choose from, as well as more than one battery at your disposal. This will keep life very convenient and allow you to have a backup battery when one is charging. One of the biggest assets to being a vaper is always staying prepared, and knowing what these batteries offer individually gives you exactly the knowledge you need to choose!

Where Did E-Cigarettes Originate?

Eversmoke-featured1Electric cigarettes are an obviously modern innovation. They encompass everything that is convenient and unique about today’s digital devices. E-cigarettes modernize, streamline and enhance all aspects of smoking and using nicotine for smokers, regardless of what their preference of device is. They have changed the way smokers experience nicotine and harness control over the process. Most smokers who have switched to vaping could not imagine going back to analog cigarettes now after experiencing what they get out of vapor cigarettes. Pretty amazing for products that have been around for just over a decade, internationally!

So here’s a look at the history of the e-cigarette. Their popularity may have only grown in the past five years however they were born of an idea that started over 50 years ago.

In 1963 a man named Herbert Gilbert patented an idea he had for an electronic smoking device. Cigarette smoke was in high demand with a huge portion of the nation’s adults smoking regularly. It was common to smoke in every public setting imaginable including libraries universities workplaces; in fact there are even images of doctors and surgeons smoking in operating rooms! With incredible foresight, Gilbert knew that this rampant cigarette smoking was going to lead to widespread illness and disease. He developed the concept, however he was way before his time because the mass public was not (yet) interested in the alternative devices because they were too busy puffing on their tobacco.

In 1983, it was predicted that in the future cigarette smoking was going to become electronic and smoke was going to be replaced with vapor. This is truly where the term vaping originated.

Electronic cigarettes fell by the wayside until the year 2003 when a pharmacist in China, Han Lik, developed a similar prototype, looking to create a product that would help smokers have an alternative to traditional tobacco use. Lik’s father had recently passed due to a lifetime of smoking that led to lung cancer, and he wanted to turn the tragedy into a positive. With the good fortune of having connections, it was no time at all before his creation was developed into a product and was reaching the Chinese public. The success was immediate, and in just a few short years the popularity of e-cigarettes spread all throughout Asia, Europe, and into the American markets.

Currently, the market is a billion dollar industry upstaging tobacco and expanding rapidly. What began as an idea to offer an alternative to tobacco has succeeded and is becoming the preferred way for smokers to enjoy nicotine.

Thanksgiving: Be Grateful for E-Cigs

ThanksgivingThanksgiving is almost here, and that means lots of celebrating and indulging in the bounty of food and drink! It also means lots of after-dinner e-cigs are going to get vaped because what closes a meal better than a rush of vapor, a blast of flavor, and the relaxing effect of nicotine? Yeah, you know what I speak: Thanksgiving e-cigs are the bomb!

E-cigs make the better choice in just about every situation, but especially when it comes to celebrating and hanging out with others. Your extended family and friends most likely will not be keen on smelling your lingering smoke odor, and don’t even think about exposing them to your second hand smoke! The holidays should be enjoyed, not spent making a nuisance of yourself!

We also know that when it comes to enjoying nicotine in large groups of people, tobacco is really not the way to go anymore. This couldn’t be more true than right now, as we approach Thanksgiving and the non stop rush of the impending holiday season. Having to smoke strictly outdoors can get very annoying, and unnecessarily repetitive, in the worst way. Having to get dressed up in all-out winter gear for just a 5 minute smoke can get old quickly, and it can often seem rude to your hosts or guests when you are constantly running back and forth and slipping out the door, favoring your cigs over the gathering.

Sometimes, we know, during those long, occasionally uncomfortable family holiday endeavors, heading outdoors to smoke can be more of a relief than having to sit through the boredom and small-talk, however e-smoking gives you the option of indoor or outdoor satisfaction. Hey, options are a great thing and being able to choose puts the power back in your hands!

Thanksgiving can be so much more enjoyable when you vape also because you’ve got so many great options of flavors to bring to the table- literally! If you want something to pair with your meal, you can choose between complementing flavors like Cherry and Golden Tobacco. If you want flavors that satisfy after a meal, Vanilla, Blue Tobacco, and Menthol match up perfectly. The choices are endless because e-cig flavors really add a fun element to any meal!

This is the week to get thankful and we are so gearing up for Thanksgiving and the season of merriment. How about you? Are you ready for feasting and enjoying time with those you love?
