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!

Tips for a Longer Battery Life

e-cigarette

Nothing can be more frustrating than your battery dying just as you’re about to use your e-cig, cellphone, laptop, or whatever other battery-operated device you use on a regular basis. Seeing as batteries are essential to keep these items running, taking care of them should be at the top of your list.

A little TLC goes a long way when it comes to getting the most life out of your battery. Below are some specific suggestions on how to help your e-cig battery last a little longer.

  • Keep it clean.
    Like with anything that you want to stay looking and performing well, you must occasionally do some cleaning. E-cig batteries can get filthy from debris, dust and e-juice leaks. We recommended taking your device apart at least once a week and wiping it down. If it’s very dirty, you may need a toothbrush to scrub off some of the dirt.

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.

Commonly Asked Questions

EverSmoke FAQWe get a lot of questions, so here are some answers! Especially for beginners, the world of vaping can seem to be a vast mystery of alternative smoking excitement: The products! The cartridges! That elusive vapor! Those gorgeous sleek batteries! The ability to use them everywhere! But with all of that allure, there’s the reality of using them, and therefore the questions. 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?

A: It’s an electronic cigarette, an alternative to the traditional tobacco kind, but requires no fire, and has no tobacco inside. Instead, it is powered by a battery and uses a liquid nicotine solution to deliver vaporized hits. Recreating the feeling of smoking all the way.

Q: Are e-cigs safe?

A: Yes, completely. As long as you follow the directions from the manufacturer, and don’t do anything foolish that shouldn’t be done with an electronic device, all will be good.

Q: My e-cig isn’t producing vapor anymore; why is this?

A: It’s probably old and needs to be replaced.

Q: It’s not old; I just put it on. What do I do?

A: It may be screwed on too tight. Cartridges should be screwed on firmly, but not too tightly. That will stop the vapor from being produced.

Q: How long do cartridges last?

A: They last based on volume, and they are about equivalent to a pack of traditional cigarettes depending on how you use them.

Q: Will my battery let me know when it needs to be charged?

A: Why of course! It will stop producing vapor, the end light will flash to indicate low battery, and it may have no power left.

Q: Can I really use it anywhere I want?

A: Generally yes. Sometimes in some public places you may run into issues, but for the most part you’ll be fine. If in doubt, ask.

Q: Can I return it if I don’t like it?

A: Yes! We offer a 30-day money back guarantee, so if you don’t like it, you’ve got that option. However, before you decide you don’t like it, give it an honest try, and explore all the different learning resources we offer!

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?!

We know it’s not all going to sink in automatically, so here is a buying guide to help you along. Buying the right gear can be essential to your success with using e-cigarettes, so hopefully this adds some insight and makes it a little easier!

There are a lot of different products in this market, and it’s a really wise idea to start off by researching. Learn as much as you can. Don’t skip this step!

Know What You Want: E-Cig or Vape Pen?

After you learn about the differences you can decide what you want. E-cigs and vape pens deliver the same result in different vehicle. What do you want to drive?

Stick with Top Brands

“Free E-Cig Trials” and “Free E-Cigs” are scams; typically anything that sounds too good to be true is! When searching for a good brand, go after one that has been around for a while and has established a strong reputation. Quality and customer satisfaction are big!

Get a Starter Kit

It’s the easiest way to start vaping! It’ll get you familiar with everything with little brainwork necessary! Electronic cigarette starter kits come in so many variations, plus they are almost always affordable and they give you the convenience of laying everything you need right in front of you.

You Need to Experiment

While everyone has something to say about vaping, you’re only going to develop your own sense of taste by experiencing things for yourself.

Don’t Sacrifice Quality to Save a Penny

Quality is one of those things you should never put off. E-cigarettes are more cost effective than traditional cigarettes, so saving a few dollars on lesser quality products is really not worth the effort. Go with a good brand that has a reputation for quality; your experience will be better as a result, and your products will function better. Trust us!

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!
