Treat Your Smile Right: Ditch the Tobacco

article-2380669-1B0C2186000005DC-893_634x395One of the most physically unattractive effects of tobacco is what it does to your face. In particular, your smile. While cigarettes are known to cause all varieties of damage to the insides of the body, laying the groundwork for a multitude of different life-altering and deadly diseases, it can also play a nasty part in turning a once beaming smile into one better off kept behind the facade of a closed-lip smirk.

What I’m talking about is dental damage, and how smoking tobacco cigarettes can damage your teeth and destroy your oral health. Read on to find out why vapor cigarettes are the better choice for protecting your teeth, and maintaining a healthy smile.

Tobacco is not good for any part of your body, but when it comes to your teeth, they are one of the most obvious places you will actually see the destruction. Regardless of how much brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings you undergo, what tobacco does to the teeth is awful. Cigarettes are known to cause garish yellow staining, plaque residue build up, tooth loss, gum infections, bad breath, and mouth and other oral cancers. Does any of this sound attractive to you?

Dental experts estimate that male smokers lose an average of 3 teeth every 10 years, and female smokers about 1-2, which is about double the average of the rate nonsmokers lose teeth due to the aging process.

Other foul contributions from cigarettes include filling your mouth with carcinogenic chemicals that stick to the mouth’s lining, causing chronic bad breath. Smoking can also restrict the blood flow to the gums, which inhibits the healing of wounds and the general health of the mouth.

When you consider all of these factors, vapor cigarettes sure seem enticing, don’t they? No smoke, tobacco, tar, or the thousands of chemicals, plus an entirely clean process make them a much smarter choice to be using as opposed to traditional cigarettes.

Your smile is one of the first things people will notice about you. It’s a key to your personality, and when your teeth are irreversibly damaged, you sure can get a ton of dental work done, but you won’t get your teeth back. Protect them right, and ditch the tobacco!

E-Cig Batteries: Technologically Amazing, Technically Awesome

eversmokeInHandE-cigarettes are powered by batteries, and the majority of these are lithium ion, meaning they are made of lithium and carbon. Considered by many to be the best for their powerful output and lightweight construction, they are the lifeblood and brainpower behind even the most advanced electronic cigarettes.

In addition to being a source of power, e-cigarette batteries contribute a lot of the overall experience of vaping. They are typically the main component of the e-cigarette, meaning the body of the device it usually the battery itself. They come in two different switch styles, Manual (turns on with a switch) and Automatic (no switch, automatic turn-on), and both e-cig styles offer benefits to the user depending on what they want in an e-cig battery.

Lithium ion batteries have not been in existence a tremendously long time; they were first introduced to the market in 1997. A more modern type of battery, unlike older styles which required a metal case, lithium ion batteries can be housed in more flexible casings, enabling them to fit specific devices.

Lithium ion batteries are loaded with benefits, and very few downfalls, which is another reason they are awesome for e-cigarettes. They can hold a charge for a very long time, they boast a light weight, they are very powerful holding a great amount of stored energy, and they can handle hundreds of charging and discharging cycles.

As for negatives, there are a few you have to contend with when using lithium ion e-cigarette batteries. For starters, they have a shelf life; they literally begin degrading once they exit the factory, whether they are used or not. You can expect them to last between two and three years however, so even though they do not last forever, they will last a while. Other negatives include the fact that they are typically more expensive batteries, and they have a sensitivity to heat which can be their demise.

If you’re stumped on what e-cigarette battery switch style to go with, have a look at our article on the subject.

When it comes to vaping, users have many choices with their lithium ion e-cig batteries, from switch style to color, size, and brand. They are the best types of batteries for vaping and their many benefits outweigh the few negatives: powerful, long lasting, and very versatile make them the top choice of power when it comes to e-cigarettes.

The Importance of Protecting E-Cig Batteries from Heat

hot-summer-rays-of-the-sun

Sometimes it can feel like you need advanced degree to keep our phones, P.D.A.’s and laptops working. According to findings by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), lithium-ion batteries perform at their best if kept at temperatures between 14°F and 86°F. Moreover, battery experts say that the number one cause of battery problems is too much heat. Batteries that get too warm drain faster than they normally would. Therefore, you should think of electronics as if they were a baby or a dog—if it’s hot outside, don’t leave it in the car.

Batteries are also affected by humidity and other weather extremes— they can bulge, bubble, melt, damage your device, smoke, and in (very) extreme cases, even blow-up. Some examples of areas to avoid bringing lithium-ion batteries are in a non-temperature controlled room, in a closed bathroom with the shower on, in a closed car on a hot day, or in a steam-room or a sauna.

The necessity of keeping your lithium ion battery cool

Standard Li-ion battery chemistry depends on electrolytes that react with a residual moisture to create hydrofluoric acid, the most corrosive of all chemical compounds. The speed of this process doubles with every increase in temperature of 10 degrees Celsius—resulting in a reduced calendar and cycle life. Moreover, not only does this mean that there is a run-time degrade with age, but it means that each subsequent charge discharge further reduces it.

This damage occurs until the battery just doesn’t last long enough between charges. In addition, the damage created by the increase in temperature is exacerbated the more you use your battery – therefore, the more power your device needs or the faster you charge it, the hotter the battery gets.

Electronic cigarettes provide smokers a smoke free alternative nicotine delivery method. When purchasing an e-cigarette, make sure that you properly care for your battery to ensure a long-lasting life.

Switches

EverSmoke offers two different options for switch modes: Manual or Automatic batteries. Manual batteries have a switch, or button that needs to be pressed during usage, activating the process. These batteries are known to produce a larger quantity of vapor than Automatic batteries, however the battery does not last as long. If you prefer a battery that automatically starts up once you puff on it, and you want it to have longer life, the Automatic switch style is for you. Two options offering two methods; if you aren’t sure which you want, we suggest trying each of them to experience how they work for yourself.

Sizes

Two battery sizes are available: Standard and High Capacity. Both are great to have in your personal selection, and having two gives you options to choose between. Sometimes you may prefer a larger or smaller battery, and some people find, after trying both styles, that they prefer one over the other. Like everything else with electronic cigarettes, it all comes down to trying and finding out what works for you.

Colors

Batteries are available in three different colors, and while this feature has nothing to do with performance, style definitely counts for something! Black, white, and stainless steel are the choices, and you are free to pick the color or colors you fancy. White is the obvious choice if you want your e-cig to look like a traditional cigarette; black is cool and sleek; and go with steel if you want a more modern, pen-like look.

How to Take Care of Your E-Cig Cartridges

eversmoke-cartridgesE-Cigarette cartridges are an essential component to vaping. They hold the flavored nicotine e-liquid, are built to hold the atomizers, which are necessary for vaporizing the liquid, and they contain the mouthpiece for which the user puffs on. For all that they do, and all that they bring to the table, it’s important to know how to take care of your cartridges. Here are some tips to make sure you treat them right, and ensure that they will be lasting as long as possible, and performing to their fullest ability.

-Learn to use them properly. Obvious, right? Well, it’s really important that you know what you’re doing right off the bat if you want every cartridge to go as far as possible.

-Screw your cartridge onto the battery till it fits perfectly, and do not over tighten. That can cause it to function incorrectly, and not produce an adequate amount of vapor.

-E-cig cartridges do have a freshness lifespan. After opening, use within one week because after that period they begin to lose potency.

-Don’t do odd things like blow or exhale into the cartridge; they were not meant for any type of action other than puffing and inhaling on.

-Cartridges are disposable, unless stated otherwise, so do not attempt to fill them with liquids.

-They are meant to be stored at temperatures ideally below 75F, in dry conditions, so don’t expose them to water.

-If your cartridge gets hot while in use, discontinue using it until it cools off.

-When vaping, you should puff on your cartridge as you would if you were smoking a cigarette. 10 to 15 puffs, with around 5 seconds between each puff is about the equivalent of one traditional tobacco cigarette.

-When vaping, long, slow drags are the ideal way to do it; shorter, quicker puffing equates to less vapor production; no one wants that!

-It’s a smart idea to keep track of your usage, so you can have a better idea of how long your cartridges will last you. Track how many puffs you take during a session, because vaping is so enjoyable it can be easy to forget and get lost in the pleasure.

-Taste something burnt? That means the cartridge has come to an end, and it’s time for a new one.

E-cig cartridge maintenance can seem unnecessary because they are disposable and have a short lifespan, but they are a major part of the experience. Treat them right, and you will get a ton of enjoyment out of them, as well as making them last as long as possible!

How Can EverSmoke Save You Money?

Why Are Celebrities Vaping?

Golden Globes -- Pictured: Julia Louis Dreyfus (Screengrab)Celebs have been on the e-cigarette bandwagon before there even was a bandwagon. These great arbiters of style and fame, our illustrious trendsetters were on to the trend before most people had even heard of the devices. And as an industry, we couldn’t be happier! Here’s why:

Celebrities have long been known to enjoy tobacco, and cigarettes were always associated with glamour and image. However, as cigarettes came to be less popular among the masses, and quite controversial in terms of how unhealthy they are, many looked to alternatives to get the same satisfaction.

When e-cigarettes hit the market, many celebrities took to them quickly. For many people, Katherine Heigl using her’s on David Letterman was the first introduction to these products. Many, many others followed suit quickly, and in a matter of just a few short years, countless celebs were using them, very proudly for that matter, in all varieties of public places.

They’ve even made appearances in several major Hollywood movies; when Johnny Depp famously used one during a scene in The Tourist, and Leonardo DiCaprio used one during The Great Gatsby.

Celebrities are vaping because all varieties of smokers are vaping. They want a better alternative, that fits with their lifestyle. They want to not look like smoky bad influences when they are photographed by the paparazzi. They want a method of obtaining nicotine that feels comfortable and normal. They want to be able to enjoy their nicotine with all of the control and benefits that come with vaping. They enjoy having a multitude of flavors to choose from. And, perhaps one of the most important reasons, when your career is very dependent on your image, you want to look as good as possible 100% of the time, without worrying over the negative publicity you may create for yourself with tobacco.

Above all, celebs use electronic cigarettes for the same reasons ordinary folks use them. Because they enhance their quality of life, because they provide a world of options, and because they offer more in every sense. Famous or not, alternatives to tobacco are here to stay!

Boosting Your E-Cig Battery Life

250-250-eversmoke-battery-ecig-batteriesWhen it comes to electronic cigarette batteries, you may be wondering what you can do to keep yours running as powerfully as possible, for as long as possible. Here are some ways to improve your e-cig batteries’ performance and life so that you can get the most out of them. While many people complain about e-cigarette batteries not lasting very long, we encourage you to take some action to keep things running smoothly!

-Clean the Battery. E-cigarette batteries get subjected to dirt and foreign debris because they are handled with the hands, and when anything is used regularly, it gets exposed. Small liquid leaks, storing the battery in your pocket upside down, and normal, everyday dirt can get in and slowly diminish performance. What you can do is tidy things up a bit. Cleaning your electronic cigarette doesn’t have to be difficult, however, you should know the basics: Once a week or so, take your e-cigarette apart, and wipe down all parts with a damp cloth. If you feel inspired, or if there is a significant amount of visible filth, use an old toothbrush to really scrub the junk out. This allows the parts to connect more consistently, and ensures dirt will not be getting in the way of your enjoyment.

-Use the Battery. It was designed for use, so use it! Some people want to preserve their batteries, and attempt to use them as infrequently as possible, but that’s not what they were designed for. Using them enables them to actually work, and they need that constant running to maintain good performance.

-Charge E-Cig Batteries Properly. Yes there are actually wrong ways to charge your batteries! You don’t want to wait till you’re down to the 0 level. The ideal time to charge a battery is when it is at 50% or higher because this creates less stress on the battery to power it back up to full capacity. When drained to nearly no power, it takes more effort and energy out of the battery to recover, and this overtime, contributes to a loss of performance.

-Store Your Batteries Right. Our storage cases were designed with the intent of storing your EverSmoke e-cigarette batteries, so we suggest using them. A case is the ideal place to hold your batteries because they were made to protect, and to keep your batteries safe. Just stashing a battery in your pocket is one of the worst things you can do, so keep it safe in a case, as well as in a cool, dry place.

So that sums it up! Taking care of your electronic cigarette batteries doesn’t have to take an exaggerated amount of time, nor does it have to be complicated. Following these simple steps can allow you to use your battery for a very long time, without losing any of the power and performance you want. E-cigarettes are an investment; protect them!
