How to Choose an E-Cigarette Brand

eversmoke-boxWith so many brands out there, we totally understand the overwhelming feeling that can come over you when trying to decide on one. Choosing a starter kit can be tricky, but choosing a brand can be even trickier, and more important! Well, one of the best things about there being such a vast selection in brands in this market is that there is sure to be at least one that fits your needs specifically.

Here are some things to ponder when narrowing down the options, as finding the right brand can mean succeeding over hightailing it back to tobacco, which I’m sure you’d rather not do!

  1. Make a list of brands you’re considering, and which ones seem to fit your needs. If you haven’t even got an idea about brands, we totally suggest EverSmoke. This is an awesome starting point for smokers looking for great quality and simplicity when switching. There’s no lack of style with this brand, and you will get a solid alternative cigarette here.

  2. Decide what type of device you want, e-cigarette or vaporizer. Vaporizers are more high-tech, more advanced, and take a little more effort to use and understand. E-cigs are designed to be as similar to traditional cigarettes as possible, which makes them the top choice for many smokers who want to go tobacco-free, smoke-free, and prefer less technology.

  3. Consider flavors. All brands offer different options and choices here, regardless of the format you’re going after. With e-cigs, you’ll be using disposable cartridges, so you won’t be filling the liquids yourself. In which case, EverSmoke offers 10 different flavors to choose from, so you’ll surely find at least a couple that resonate with you.

  4. Nicotine strength: find a brand that has what you’re looking for, and if you don’t know what you’re looking for, choose a brand that has a large selection. It can vary from brand to brand, and some don’t offer 0mg, some don’t go higher than 16mg, and some have such lousy quality regardless of what they have labeled, you can’t trust the nicotine to do its thing.

  5. Research each brand when it comes to such matters as refund policy, warranties, and how good they are about customer service. Things happen, and getting stuck with products you don’t want, or ending up with things that stop working without the company backing up your purchases can make you feel hopeless. Scope out each brand’s social media pages and look out for online reviews to see what other customers have had to say. A good reputation accounts for a whole lot.

Choosing an e-cigarette brand is the first step to embarking on this amazing lifestyle that can avail so much freedom, savings, and fun. If you’d like more info on using electronic cigarettes, or to learn more about these products in general, feel free to browse our electronic cigarette Learning Center for more educational articles that can offer even more insight!  Good luck on your journey, and enjoy the ride!

What Awaits You When Switching to E-Cigarettes

Switch to E-CigsAfraid to make the switch to vaping? Scared to let go of your past dependence in exchange for a better way to enjoy your daily life, and nicotine without the baggage? Here are some of our favorite reasons to switch to electronic cigarettes, in case you need a reminder. Millions of vapers have made the switch, and haven’t looked back. What are you waiting for?

-A Tobacco-Free Body: Being free from tobacco benefits nearly every facet of your health, and switching to an alternative method of smoking that does not involve tobacco is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

-A Smoke-Free Home: The tar from tobacco cigarettes is sticky, gooey, and has the capacity to leave behind nasty yellow stains on the teeth, hands, and practically anything it comes into contact with over an extended period of time. In the home, it can stain your walls, carpets, upholsteries, and nearly anything porous, leaving behind a tell-tale discoloration, as well as a musty, funky smell. Vaping, on the hand doesn’t!

-Tastier Meals: Cigarette smoke destroys your taste buds and your sense of smell, the two components that are responsible for your ability to taste things. Once you stop smoking, your sense of taste begins to recover. This is one of the best parts of switching to vaping.

-A More Dazzling Smile: Cigarettes can do a number on your oral health, and destroy your teeth, making your smile atrocious. Definitely not something to smile about.

-More Money in Your Wallet: Everyone needs more, and vaping is much more cost effective.

-Peace of Mind: Knowing you aren’t part of the global pollution problem is a great thing, even if you are of the responsible sort and dispose of your cigarette butts properly. Tobacco cigarettes are the world’s most polluted item; it’s nice to know you aren’t adding to the problem.

-Smelling Fresh and Clean: Smelling like you’ve been in a bar all night isn’t exactly a sexy smell! Vapers love carrying the scent of fresh air with them everywhere they go, knowing no one will be put off by their smoky smell.

So if you are still smoking cigarettes, why not give e-cigs a try? Look at all the things you’ve got to lose, and how much you have to gain!

E-Cigarettes & Heat: What You Need to Know

EverSmoke Batteries and HeatHeat and e-cigarettes can make for a bad situation. Your e-cigarette batteries are your lifeline to vaping. Without them, you obviously won’t get very far, and if they are damaged or compromised, you’re out of luck if you don’t have backup. The majority of the batteries used in vaping devices are lithium ion, and they need specific conditions to perform optimally, especially in regards to temperature extremes.

Ideally, the temperatures your batteries are kept at should never dip below 14 degrees Fahrenheit, or rise above 86 degrees. There is a whole range of things that can go wrong, from lesser effectiveness, to the battery totally failing. In fact, the most common cause of electronic cigarette battery issues can be attributed to overheating. Here are some of the signs your battery may exhibit if it has had an overexposure to too hot temperatures:

  • Expanded body
  • Has stopped working
  • Bubbles
  • Signs of melting
  • Bulging
  • Smoking (not vaping)
  • Contracts
  • Sparks
  • Flames
  • In extremely rare circumstances, it can become explosive
  • And shows other signs of damage

And it’s not just the heat that is a problem. Extreme cold can cause the internal parts of an electronic cigarette battery to expand, which can cause irreparable damage.

It has long been documented that lithium ion batteries can become explosive when subjected to temperatures above 100 F in a multitude of devices, including laptops and cellphones. While this is extremely rare, precautions should be taken to protect both yourself and your batteries.

Considering all that these tiny devices provide you with, and how little effort it takes to truly safeguard them, it pays to take the extra steps if you are faced with temperature extremes. Proper and attentive care will give you the best performance out of your e-cigarette batteries, and will ensure that your investment yields the best return, while ensuring your safety. Take care of them, and they’ll surely take care of you!

The War on E-Cigs

7fe32cb6d9a2459c08c20a8f6c5f15adPropaganda, half truths, twisting of scientific studies, and misreporting are running heavily rampant these days when it comes to e-cigarette research and usage. With recent reports, such as the one published by the New England Journal of Medicine that went viral through the media a few weeks back, followed by the state of California’s public health department running a statement that e-cigarettes should not be used due to their production of “chemicals” and that they can be viewed as a gateway to smoking tobacco, it seems that there is an unusual amount of negative information swirling, based on speculation, aimed at discouraging users from vaping.

What these reports fail to do, all the while playing up hype and sensation, is focus on the positives electronic cigarettes have accomplished in a short amount of time.

Smokers don’t turn to electronic smoking to gain a new habit. They do not enter the world of smoking as a result, either. They look to these products as a means of transitioning away from traditional cigarettes, as with vaping they have more control, more options, and can enjoy the experience of smoking without involving any tobacco.

“It is stunning that a public agency entrusted with the health of the population of California would promote such a one-sided, scientifically impoverished document” remarked Sally Satel, who disbunked much of the speculation and false reports in a piece for Forbes. Also noteworthy, is that even the newly appointed Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy has stated that there is a “desperate need for clarity” when it comes to electronic cigarettes. Obviously a blatantly negative, harmful label cannot be placed on e-cigarettes, so the media really needs to halt their efforts in doing so!

So, what is the deal? Why is the anti-smoking coalition so drastically anti-e-cigarette? Is it because electronic cigarettes make the idea of stopping tobacco usage too easy? Too simple? Too enjoyable? Is it the concept of an alternative, similar yet different, too hard to grasp because there should not be a pleasurable option? Whatever the reasoning may be, it’s time for these “public health experts” to take a hard look at the reality of e-cigarettes, and see the benefits right before their eyes. Instead of focusing on the idea of e-cigarettes being a scary endeavor out to tempt young people into the world of smoking cigarettes, they should be compounding their efforts into lobbying for e-cigarette regulations that guarantee product quality and purity. As this industry is in its infancy, only the future will tell, however one thing we are certain of, is that electronic cigarettes are not going anywhere!

Smoking and Oral Health: No Kissing Matter

tobacco and oral healthSmiles, eating, tasting, kissing, and talking: they are all reliant upon your mouth and your oral health. Poor oral health can contribute to all kinds of other bodily ailments, and having compromised oral health can certainly impede your ability to enjoy all the many things your mouth enables you to have. Imagine not being able to taste your favorite foods, or kiss your lover, or smile big and beautiful when the emotion takes you. Suffice it to say, you need your mouth, and you need it to be in good shape.

One of the best ways to disrupt the balance of health in your mouth is by smoking tobacco cigarettes. And yes, you’re probably fully aware that tobacco causes big trouble, but are you in the know of all the ways smoking is bad for your oral health?

If you smoke cigarettes, here is a breakdown of what you are playing with. While you may not have experienced any of these issues, just being a tobacco smoker puts you in contention for them! Want to steer clear? Drop the tobacco and switch to vaping; tobacco is not worth putting your mouth on!

Chronic Bad Breath

Smoking dries your mouth out, compounding the naturally found bacteria, enabling them to create a rather foul odor. Smoking also leaves behind disgusting particles, and they don’t smell good. Add in the fact that a vitamin C deficiency is a very common cause of bad breath, and nicotine has the known side effect of causing odors of the mouth. Smoking, very simply, and for a variety of reasons, can make your breath reek. No one wants to kiss a funky mouth.


Your gums are very susceptible to smoking damage. ‘White gums’ is among the most common issue, and this can be indicative of conditions as serious as oral cancer, gum recessions, and bone detachment.

Taste and Smell Loss

Loss of your sense of smell is one of the first things you lose when you start smoking. Next up is the loss of tasting, as the palate is closely connected to the sense of smell. Say bye-bye to your ability to taste deliciousness if you opt for tobacco. Interestingly, upon stopping their usage of tobacco products, users begin to realize how compromised their sense of taste has become!

Scary, right?! Makes you want to switch, ASAP, huh? Luckily, switching to vaping is super simple to do, and can offer a much more comfortable quality of life, without the tobacco exposure! Best place to start? An EverSmoke Starter Kit!

E-Cigs are NOT Tobacco Products!

vapor-vs-smokeIt is always puzzling how lobbyists and lawmakers attempt to classify electronic cigarette as tobacco cigarettes. With so many cities around the US grouping e-cigarette use in with tobacco use, and prohibiting usage in many of the same places, vapers feel unfairly targeted.

Sure, there are similarities, but they are absolutely, inherently different. They were designed to serve as “alternatives” and have stayed true to that premise throughout all of the countless innovations and reinventions that have occurred.

Need to know exactly how e-cigs and traditional cigs differ? Keep reading!

-There is No Tobacco: They work with a liquid nicotine solution, flavor, and 0 tobacco! Yes, nicotine is derived from tobacco, but there is no actual tobacco whatsoever involved in e-cigarettes. The devices are either filled with liquid, or a cartridge filled with liquid is attached; no tobacco gets used in the process, in any way!

-E-Cigs are Reusable Devices: No tobacco means there’s no tobacco to roll into a paper cigarette. While basic e-cigs look like the real thing, they are made of aluminum and plastic! Entirely different!

-Vapor Isn’t Smoke: they look similar, wafting through the air in a viscous, alluring manner, but they’re totally different. Polar opposites, even. Smoke is a product of burning matter; vapor is the gaseous form of water. Vapor has no smell, it dissipates, and does not leave behind resinous tar like tobacco smoke does.

-Battery Powered, Not Fire-Powered: E-Cigarettes, regardless of which style or variety, are powered by battery. Traditional cigarettes are powered by fire. There’s a huge difference there! Further proof you won’t be subjected to combustion!

-No Crazy Additives in E-Cigs: Most e-cigarette brands are straightforward about what’s in them. E-Liquid typically consists of a few necessary ingredients, such as water, PG (propylene glycol), VG (vegetable glycerin), nicotine, and flavorings. Unlike traditional cigarettes, that contain thousands of different chemicals, many of which are known carcinogens and toxins.

And those are just some of the basics, regarding the vast differences between electronic smoking and traditional tobacco smoking. While it is unfortunate that many still try to group them into the same category, there are inherent differences, and no matter how much an e-cigarette simulates the original, it will never be a tobacco cigarette.

Vape Your Way to Better Shape! Part 1

Get in Shape with VapingLooking to get into better shape? In an indirect way, vaping can help! If you’re a smoker, you probably know all too well the pitfalls that come with being having decreased breathing ability and attempting to exercise. Simply, smoking has a terrible effect on the body, inside and out. Here are some ways just using your vape instead of smoking can help you along with your fitness goals!

  1. Vaping, as it does not contain smoke or tobacco, nor does it produce combustion or tar, will not have the same effect on your body, so you won’t have to worry about the smoke being a negative factor in your ability to get your blood flowing .

  2. More control options. Smoking cigarettes, you are probably accustomed to smoking through whole cigarettes at a time in favor of not wasting them. With vaping, you can take 2 puffs and call it done, without that same waste factor. This means you can place more limitations on yourself without creating an uncomfortable situation. Which means you can more consciously limit your nicotine intake without going crazy.

When vaping, you can recover much of those lost sensations and allow yourself the pleasure of eating healthier foods, and being able to taste them. Eating the rainbow is ideal, and now you’ll actually be able to taste it! (And no, we aren’t talking about indulging wildly in your fave colorful candies!)

So here is a quickie FAQ covering the basics and some of our most commonly asked questions.

Q: What’s this e-cigarette thing everyone is using these days?

Need a Few Thousand Dollars? Switch to E-Cigarettes

Cigarettes burn moneySwitching to e-cigarettes can do so much for your life. You get the pleasure of using your device almost anywhere, you are allotted so much more control over everything that deals with your habit, you don’t have to be self conscious about how you smell, you don’t have to worry about the ramifications of tobacco, and vaping can save big money.

Yes, you read that correctly. Switching to e-cigs can save thousands of dollars!

You are surely aware of how expensive smoking traditional cigarettes gets, and how much more costly it can become when you factor in all the other expenses such as higher insurance premiums, health-related expenses that come as a result of smoking, and the additional costs such as gum, perfume and cologne, lighters, etc. Suffice it to say, tobacco smoke ain’t cheap!

When you switch to vaping, the expenses really begin to take a nosedive. Many smokers are unsure of vaping, especially when it comes to saving money because their first impression on vaping is having to shell out approximately $100 towards a starter kit. That seems like such a high price compared to the $10 spent on a pack of cigarettes.  However, it must be noted that users typically do not purchase new starter kits constantly. It’s a one-time cost that starts saving you money immediately. While you may need to update an item here or there, and possibly add in a few new things as you feel necessary, your costs go way down because you will no longer be spending $11 daily ($77 weekly; $4,004 yearly!) on smoking.

Cartridges become the equivalent to packs of cigarettes as they are they part of the e-cig that contains the nicotine liquid and flavor. E-Cig cartridges are designed to go the distance of 1.5-2 packs of cigarettes, and each cartridge can cost as low as $2.22! So, if you are using one cartridge per day, as many vapers do, your weekly total will be coming out to $15.54, or $808 yearly! What a difference!

So, are you ready to ditch the cigarette packs for the alternative? Ready to save some serious money? E-cigarettes are changing the way smokers enjoy nicotine, and besides, who couldn’t use an extra few thousands dollars every year?!
