How to Perfect Your Technique

9Using any device, technology, or product can come with its share of ups and downs when figuring out how to get the best performance from it. When it comes to vaping, one thing we can’t stress enough is how important it is to get the feel and the technique right. So if you are new to using electronic cigarettes, or are interested in finding out how to get better performance results from your e-cigarettes, do yourself a quick little favor and read these tips!

-Experiment, experiment, experiment! Can you tell we believe in the merits of experimenting to find what works for you? Don’t expect the first go to be the perfect match. You didn’t marry the first person you ever dated, right? Same goes for trying anything else that’s new; leave your options open, try different flavors, nicotine strengths, and e-cigarette styles until you are totally satisfied.

-Try different flavors. Just because you were a smoker and used and are used to tobacco doesn’t mean all of our other exciting flavors won’t appeal to you. Change can be awesome and sometimes it’s just the trick to make your vaping go over easy.

-Vaping is not the same as tobacco smoking, and your drags are going to be different. Long, deep drags are the way to go unlike the short quick drugs typical when smoking tobacco cigarettes. In fact, the longer and slower the drags, the better.

-Enjoy all of the sensations. When you hold your vapor in (longer than you would with tobacco cigarettes), the feeling can be amazing!  Try it!

-Get really familiar with your cartridges, learn how to use them properly, how they work, and how to detect when the liquid is running low. They are major components to the experience, and if your cartridge doesn’t have enough e-liquid in it, it’s not going to perform properly.

Understand the basics of choosing a nicotine strength. Most smokers use a level around 18 mg; heavy smokers (two packs a day) would probably be most comfortable 24 mg; a casual smoker would probably enjoy 6 mg. Our suggestion is to start off with a lower level than you would typically go with so that you can see exactly what’s comfortable for you and where you can increase or decrease the nicotine.

The most important factor when vaping  is your satisfaction, so tweak these techniques and put them into play to get the most out of your experience when using electronic cigarettes. Be patient when vaping, consider that there is a learning curve involved when you first start. If you need more information or resources please feel free to browse the EverSmoke knowledge center. Your enjoyment and success when using our electronic cigarettes is our goal so please do not hesitate to explore the many options and resources we make available!

Cartridges VS Liquids

EverSmoke-cartridges-e1336266299663The many different types of e-cigarettes out there have their pros and cons; there truly is something for every type of vaper. Whether you’re into extreme high performance and controlling every little detail, or you just want simple, straight-forward pleasure, there are electronic cigarettes that will get the job done. If you’re not sure which method you want, keep reading to learn about the benefits of using pre-filled e-cig cartridges!

-Easy to use. Some people want things to be really simple, and cartridges are just that. You take them out of the package, connect them to the battery and you’re set. No additional effort required.

-Convenient. You can swap out an old cartridge for a new one just about anytime, anywhere in seconds. The screw-on/ off design is oh so simple, and you don’t have to worry about the perfection required when filling liquids yourself.

-Typically cartridges come in a large assortment of flavors and nicotine strengths. EverSmoke e-cig cartridges are available in 10 different flavors and 5 different nicotine strengths, including nicotine-free. If you want the option to try all of the offered flavors, a Sampler Pack is available.

-Each cartridge lasts around the equivalent of 1.5 packs of cigarettes, which make them very cost effective and easy on your wallet.

-They travel with ease. If you’re on the go, or happen to be traveling, cartridges are very convenient to bring along, as opposed to liquids. Because there is little effort involved in changing them,  no issues with spontaneous leaks, no need to be carrying around bottles of liquid, and the fact that cartridges fit just about anywhere quite securely, they are ideal for traveling.

-A simpler product requires less thought; you don’t have to think about different tanks and atomizers, and whether they’re compatible with your battery. All EverSmoke batteries work with all EverSmoke cartridges.

Don’t get us wrong, we love advanced vaporizers, but sometimes a basic product is what you need. Using e-liquids can offer incredible experiences and can be just the right thing for certain users, however cartridges are loaded with positives as well. Making the choice shouldn’t be difficult, and if you’re not sure which will tickle your fancy more, try both options!

 

E-Cig Lingo: What is “Throat Hit?”

vapetravelIf you spend any time reading up on vaping, interacting with the electronic cigarette community, be it online or in real life, you’ve probably come across a variety of culture-specific terms and phrases that may or may not make sense to you.

One of these terms is “throat hit.” If you’ve spent your time smoking cigarettes, you probably have never put much thought into what this means, much less had to question your cigarette producing an adequate one.

You see, tobacco smoke, because it is actually burning tobacco, will produce a heavy, full hit every time. When recreating this electronically, and without the tobacco, it takes a certain degree of technology and fine tuning within the engineering to replicate it with vapor. Obviously it can be done, and not all e-cigarette brands get it right.

The throat hit is one of the reasons why e-cigarettes have worked out so well for smokers who want something other than a traditional cigarette to obtain their nicotine from. Gums and patches are available, and obviously with nicotine, however the one element they lack is the ability to provide a throat hit like a traditional cigarette. It is what makes e-smoking so similar and comfortable for smokers.

“Throat hit” is basically the hit from the smoking device, whether it’s an electronic cigarette/ vaporizer or a traditional tobacco cigarette. It’s what you feel upon inhalation. It is the feeling of the vapor, warm and smooth, yet powerful, hitting the back of your throat. It is part of the overall experience, and the sensation is extremely pleasurable for those who are accustomed to smoking. So pleasurable in fact that e-smokers typically want devices that produce a good one.

Throat hit is impacted by the e-cigarette battery’s output, the nicotine in the cartridge, and the flavor. Finding an e-cig battery that produces the kind of throat hit you want can sometimes be tricky, but opting for a high-quality brand is a great place to start. An additional option are mods because Advanced Personal Vaporizers have the ability to be tweaked in ways that allow you to change the power of the throat hit.

The throat hit is one of those intrinsic parts of vaping that matter a whole lot. A lot of emphasis is placed upon battery power, great flavors, nicotine strength, and great accessories, however at the core of the experience, throat hit can make or break it! Choose your e-cigarette wisely; satisfaction is key!

E-Cigs VS Vaporizers

9107969_origStandard electronic cigarettes and vaporizers are two totally different animals, yet they do basically the same thing in different ways. They both have their benefits, and their own individual styles, giving users the ability to choose what works for them. For those new to e-smoking, it may be confusing to decipher between the two.

Read on to learn about the differences between them, what their benefits are, and to see which will fit your personal needs of vaping.

E-Cig Pros

  • They look like traditional cigarettes, which is great if you don’t want to be attracting a lot of attention.
  • Small, compact size makes them convenient and very easy to store.
  • Ultimate style for portability; you can take them anywhere covertly and easily.
  • Easy to use; e-cigs have been designed to be as similar to traditional cigs as possible.
  • You get all the benefits of using cartridges; they are simple and easy to use and change.
  • Very affordable; starter kits can be inexpensive and the average vaper saves thousands of dollars each year.
  • Wide variety of accessories including chargers, battery sizes and colors, storage cases, and lanyards.

Personal Vaporizer Pros:

  • Hi-tech style and design makes them both esthetically as well as functionally pleasing.
  • Vaporizers often have more control features, allowing the user to customize exactly how it performs when it comes to the vapor and the power.
  • Advanced engineering enables them to produce larger quantities of vapor.
  • The same engineering allows for more powerful throat hits than basic e-cigs.
  • Typically vaporizers work with tanks and refillable e-liquids instead of cartridges, which enables the user to have much more control over the vapor.
  • When using e-liquids, users typically have a much greater range of flavor choices at their disposal.
  • A huge selection of accessories gives users endless amounts of options for creating their ideal device.

As you can see, both styles of vaping devices offer many pros, which basically come down to preference. EverSmoke and our sister brand VaporFi offer a very large selection of both basic electronic cigarettes and the most advanced personal vaporizers, and they are available in starter kits as well as sold individually, so feel free to browse through the catalogs of both to find the perfect e-cigarette or vaporizer setup!

Electronic Cigarettes Extending into the Mainstream

MN--E-Cigarette-BoomThe popularity of electronic cigarettes has exploded in the last few years, considering how popular they have been since they first emerged. Smokers have taken to these alternatives wholeheartedly, and their presence in the mainstream has become quite solidified. So why are smokers switching like there’s no tomorrow? Here is a look at some of the reasons!

E-Cigarettes are alternative cigarettes. They combine the latest technology to recreate and simulate the experience of smoking. They are comprised of a battery, an atomizer, a vessel that holds e-liquid (such as a cartridge, tank, or cartomizer), and a part to puff on. They contain no tobacco, burn nothing, produce no smoke, leave behind no tar, have no odor, and are not made with thousands of added chemicals. In fact, they contain very few ingredients, and truly simplify the whole concept of smoking. They are pretty straight forward devices, and the only things they have in common with traditional cigarettes are that they offer a similar experience and give you the option of having nicotine if you want it.

One of the most obvious reasons smokers switch to vaping is that they have the option to smoke as they please, without many of the negative aspects that come with smoking traditional cigarettes. For instance, they can achieve the same sensations, feeling, and process as smoking cigarettes without any smoke. The burning of tobacco is replaced with vaporizing the e-liquid, and the entire experience of vaping is cleaner, simpler, and actually more convenient than smoking traditional cigarettes. They don’t leave any odor, can be used nearly anywhere, and they create no trail of mess behind them.

The current exodus of smokers switching to vapor is not expected to slow anytime soon. Rather, the growth is predicted to expand immensely, with experts considering the present time to be merely the beginning. They are predicting an unprecedented number of smokers to become vapers this year, numbers are expected somewhere in the range of 10 million!

Why vaping has become so popular and is becoming a part of mainstream American culture is obvious. The logic is simple; they provide something people love and enjoy in a more convenient package, without the major negatives. Why wouldn’t smokers switch if they have the option?

Keeping Things Green with E-Cigarettes

Cigarette_ButtsElectronic cigarettes are considered better than traditional cigarettes for plenty of different reasons: they are more convenient, e-cigs cost a lot less than tobacco, they are able to be used in many places traditional cigs aren’t, and they are better for the environment and the planet.

While many smokers are not aware of the plight cigarettes contribute to, they are among the most littered items in the world. They are environmental hazards, and they pose a tremendous danger to wildlife. If you are interested in living more eco-consciously, consider switching your tobacco cigs for electronic cigs. Among all of their many improvements on the original analog design, being better for the earth is one of their best assets.

To understand why cigarettes are such a problem, you have to consider what they are made of: tobacco that is grown in pesticide-laden conditions and then laced with countless other harmful chemicals, and set with filters that include thousands of toxic chemicals. The filters do not biodegrade, and when they get strewn into the environment, they begin to release these chemicals, creating very unsavory conditions. They find their way into the mouths and digestive tracts of wildlife such as fish and birds, as well as polluting water systems and the ground.

Cigarettes also place a problem environmentally because they are a non-reusable item. Cigarette packs continuously get purchased, and waste gets tossed. It is a constant stream of use and discard, adding to landfill waste, and in more unfortunate circumstances, adding to the world’s pollution problem.

By using electronic cigarettes you can cut down drastically on these negatives. A single e-cigarette cartridge is equivalent to anywhere from one to two packs of cigarettes, and cartridges are among the only parts that get replaced with any sense of frequency. Other e-cigarette parts, such as batteries and chargers go a very long distance, especially with proper care, enabling users to significantly reduce the amount of waste they generate due to their nicotine habit.

E-cigarettes and the environment are a much batter match than tobacco. For all of their many benefits, being gentler on the earth is among their very best. If you are considering the more eco-friendly nicotine option, have a look at the entire range of EverSmoke products to enlighten your smoking in a positive direction!

Batteries: What You Need to Know & Which Style Will Work for You

accessories_long_batteryWith so many different e-cigarette batteries out there, do you ever wonder which type will suit you?

EverSmoke offers one basic style, with several different options, making it a very versatile, easy to use, and easy to please model. Available in different sizes and switch modes, you really have your way with this one. Here is a look at e-cigarette batteries, and a little info to help you choose if you are unsure about what you’re looking for.

Lithium-Ion

All EverSmoke batteries are made with the same SuperMax technology. They are lithium-ion, which makes them unbelievably durable, able to last a long time, and they have the capacity to produce excellent amounts of vapor.

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.

While the e-cigarette market it filled with options and many different types of products and batteries, we are confident EverSmoke makes the most durable, highest performing options in this category.

How E-Cigs Work: The Technology Inside

what-is-e-cigaretteE-cigs are simple in looks and design, however within that sleek cigarette-like body is a great deal of technology that comes together to recreate the smoking experience minus the smoke.

Understanding the technology is about understanding what each of the parts do, and how they work in unison to get the job done so fluently. Regardless of the style of electronic cigarette, the majority of these parts will be the same, with variances in power, performance, and capabilities. However, essentially it all comes down to liquid nicotine, a vaporizing mechanism, a battery or power source, and something to puff on.

Continue reading to learn more about the technology behind   electronic cigarette parts, what they are, what they do, and how they work.

Battery: The battery is the most important part of the vaping equation. It is the power source, and it is the main body of the e-cigarette. Inside of it are all the other parts, including the mouthpiece on which the user will inhale upon. E-Cigarette batteries come in a wide range of sizes, styles, and power levels, however they basically do the same job. It’s rather amazing that they can hold so much power, and contain so many other components while remaining so compact.

Atomizer: The atomizer is built into the e-cigarette cartridge the majority of the time, especially regarding two-piece e-cigs. This is the part of the unit that is responsible for vaporizing the nicotine e-liquid into the vapor. It receives a surge of power from the battery, kicking into gear when the user begins puffing.

Cartridge: The cartridge is the disposable part of the e-cigarette that comes pre-filled with flavored e-liquid, and is created with the atomizer inside. Atomizers tend to not have a long life, and replacing them with each new cartridge allows for better performance. The cartridge also contains the silicon mouthpiece.

E-Liquid: E-liquid is what the vapor hits are created from, and where the nicotine and flavor are held.

Crystal Tip: The end of the e-cigarette is fitted with a crystal tip, that glows when in use. It alerts the user when the battery is getting low, and allows others to know when you are puffing on it, in a very realistic manner.

Silicon Mouthpiece: The silicon mouthpiece is created for comfort, and resembles in look and feel a traditional cigarette filter. Created with a hole designed for smooth hitting and the right amount of resistance, a silicon mouthpiece is very comfortable for smokers.

The whole process of how these parts are used to simulate the experience of smoking, without the use of tobacco, or smoke is truly remarkable, and this modern usage of technology is allowing millions of people to enjoy the process in a much more enjoyable manner. Technology is amazing, isn’t it?
