Disturbing Facts About Tobacco

E-Cigarettes are the smarter choice for many reasons. They save money, are better for the environment because they are outstandingly eco friendly, and most importantly, they are better for you. It doesn’t take FDA approvals or the government to say it, either. They are healthier just for being smoke free, and not laced with hundreds of chemicals. In fact, any reputable e-cig company, such as EverSmoke, makes all ingredients available and you can bet deadly, dangerous, toxic chemicals are not part of the recipe.

Tobacco cigarettes and their filters read like a laundry list of disturbing chemicals. A vast majority of them are known to cause cancer. Only tobacco companies could explain and justify why things like arsenic, lead, menthanol, ammonia, and hydrogen cyanide need to be included, but these are highly poisonous substances, lethal even, and should not be put into the body on a daily basis even in the smallest quantities! When these sorts of ingredients are found in other consumer products, warnings are issued and printed so that the customer is well aware of it.

Toxic ingredients are the only problems with tobacco cigarettes. There are also problems with the tobacco itself. The tobacco farming industry is not exactly applauded for it’s stellar  practices. Tobacco has lead to major deforestation, leaching of precious topsoil, infusing native soil with radioactive fertilizers and harmful pesticides, and therefore creates dangerously polluted run off water, that leads to larger bodies of water, pollution intact.

And then there is the pollution cigarettes, cigarette packs, and lighters create. Too many times smokers have gotten into the habit of littering with their cigarettes and cigarette waste. It’s a problem that plagues the entire earth, and it would seem easy to push anti-littering campaigns, but really? If they haven’t stopped discarding their butts like this by now, will they ever as long as they are smokers? Cigarette filters are not biodegradable, and all those lovely chemicals in those filters cause further havoc on the environment, as they slowly get buried beneath layers of soil.

So while chemicals, pollution, and deforestation are major issues, the problem lies with cigarettes. If less smokers are using them, and choosing electronic smokes instead, it means less people are buying cigarettes and not further supporting this industry. Less tobacco means less chemicals, pollution, and deforestation fo the world to contend with. All the more reason to get with the times, and get an e-cig starter kit!

 

All About Our E-Cig Batteries and Chargers

 Batteries and chargers: two things that are your essentials when it comes to vaping. Your battery is the main component and the charger gives it life, with the cartridge you have your vapor and nicotine and the whole thing is complete. Here is what you need to know when choosing your electronic cigarette batteries and chargers.

Batteries:

We carry two sizes, two switch modes, and three colors. The colors you can choose from are simple and classy, and allow you to get a little creative without going overboard: white, black and stainless steel. The sizes we offer are Standard and High Capacity. Standard lasts a minimum of 250 puffs, and is a very comfortable and compact size of 110 mm. The High Capacity battery is longer at 118 mm, and lasts a minimum of 350 puffs. Both are really great to have and new users are totally recommended to try both sizes. The e-cig battery switches  are there to offer customers a greater sense of customization. Automatic switch is the simplest, it works automatically. You put your mouth to the mouth piece, draw like you would with a cigarette, and it turns on automatically. When you are through, it will sense it and shut off as well. Manual switch is different, it works with a slight button that needs to be pressed to turn on the e-cig, and you do this as you puff. Customers who are fans of this style report enjoying the freedom and convenience, as well as the longer battery life. Many users prefer this style because it offers more control of the process, and produces a thicker, richer vapor, and they generally do not mind that it lasts slightly less as long as the Automatics.

Chargers:

Our four chargers are pretty simple, and offer users the opportunity to use them where it makes the most sense for them. We have a portable wall charger, that works by getting plugged into a wall. A USB charger that hooks your battery up to the USB port on your computer or laptop. The car adapter lets you charge while in the car through the lighter/ adapter. And our Personal Charging Case, or PCC, lets you charge anytime, anywhere without a separate power source. It gets charged on it’s own, and then charged batteries when stored inside.

So many choices when it comes to e-cigarettes! Some people opt for everything because having more adds to your daily convenience and options for versatility, and some are strictly less is more types. Learning what your choices are can really help you make the best decisions so that the end result is your comfort and happiness with the products!

- Charging batteries is simple; what you do is screw the battery onto the USB or wall charger, then plug it in.

Electronic Cigarette History

Electronic cigarettes may seem like a very new product, but they have indeed, been around long enough to have a legitimate history!

It all goes back to 1963, when a man named Herbert A. Gilbert patented the idea for a device that would allow users to smoke electronically. Great idea, at the wrong time however, because no action was taken beyond this patent. Fast forward to the future, 50 years later, at least Mr. Gilbert gets a nod for having come up with the idea! In the 1960′s, the world wasn’t really in tune with the idea of a smoke-free smoking device. Everyone smoked and there was no negative connotation. You could smoke almost anywhere and no one thought anything of it. There was no talk about health or diseases that stem back to cigarette smoking.

With smoking creating it’s own little epidemic, the general attitudes towards cigarettes, by comparison, today are nothing like the accepted norm of the ’60′s. Sensing the need for world wide change, a Chinese pharmacist and smoker by the name of Han Lik is credited as the modern inventor of the e-cigarette. In 2003, after Lik’s father passed away from lung cancer, he created the prototype for what has become a worldwide phenomenon: the e-cigarette. With backing from the company he worked for, it was only a short time before these products were available to te public, and China embraced them from the start. Hence, e-cigs were born.

Over the next few years, these e-cigs began to spread worldwide, with people in Europe and America quick to hop on this trend. Seriously, come on; nicotine from a device that mimics a cigarette, used in the same way, gives you the same feeling without the smoke and tar? What smoker wouldn’t jump on that? The benefits of e-cigarettes are so widespread and most smokers who use them are thrilled to have them. There is nothing like being able to smoke in public again, that’s for sure!

Anti-tobacco movements have been on the prowl for the past 25 years, and cigarette smoking has come to an all time low. While it hasn’t been a clear cut path for the entire e-cigarette industry, and there have certainly been obstacles presented by legalities and the FDA, one way or another, vapor cigarettes are here to stay.

Before You Order A Starter Kit

Before you order your first starter kit there are several things you should keep in mind. It’s a good idea to learn as much as possible about the products, and what you think will work for you.

Research; there are so many options out there when it comes to electronic cigarettes.

Understand quality. This is a huse variable in the e-cigarette market!

Know what you want: Do you want to go for an e-cigarette starter kit with lots of accessories, or would you prefer something more basic? You can go bare-bones basic, if you like, with our Reusable Express Kits, and even opt for E-Cigarette Disposables if you want no commitment at all.

Commit to giving up cigarettes, if you haven’t yet. If this is what you truly want, focus your intentions on that goal. For some it’s easy, and for others it takes some some effort.

Understand that quitting cigarettes may not happen immediately. It can take a while, weeks or even months to wean yourself entirely off cigarettes.

Refund Policy: Make sure the company you buy from has one.  There is always the possibility of not liking your kit. A good company will definitely offer a way for you to return it.

Warranty: Always important also because things can, and will inevitably happen. Sometimes you may get a product that does not work, and there can be times where things stop working. Don’t take chances with companies that don’t back up their products and help their customers out.

Embarking on the decision to use electronic cigarettes instead of tobacco is a really big one, and in order to have the most successful experience with it, you should plan accordingly. It’s always a good choice to go with your healthier option, so set yourself up right!

 

 

Electronic Cigarettes: Separating Myth from Reality

There are lots of myths about e-cigarettes. You know how it goes; a story gets told numerous times and the facts begin to distort! Anyone looking into e-cigs is bound to come across a variety of different myths regarding them, so here is some info to clarify the stories you may have heard. Like anything in life, it really will help your search along if you use common sense over anything!

If you research any topic on the internet you are sure to come across a wide range of information. While you know you can trust many sites as being fully reputable and knowledge-based, there are many more that aren’t. So when it comes to electronic cigarettes, it sure helps to know what you are looking for. You’ve got to understand the products and the many options that are available. Learn about all the brands out there, understand the different features, and if you can you should experiment with a few.  Electronic cigarette reviews are one way of gauging the market to get a feel for it, and what people are saying regarding specific brands and products. There are many sites devoted to giving honest reviews where the user has first hand experience, and you can learn a lot from them.

Another important way to steer clear of the nonsense stories is to understand the laws and rules regarding e-cigs. Some claim that e-cigarettes will soon be illegal, but this is certianly not true. While the government has made mention of regulating the, there is no real reason that e-cigs should be illegal. Ordinary cigarettes are much more harmful, and electronic cigarettes do not warrant any necessary or dangers needed to ban them.

Some of the stories I have seen floating around about e-cigs include the worries that they can explode, that the vapor presents the same dangers of second hand smoke, that nicotine causes cancer, no matter how you get it. I’ve heard that they can contain anti-freeze (not true) and I have heard that contain the same level of carcinogens as traditional cigarettes (also untrue). Some worry about e-cigarettes costing too much, and being a more expensive habit to assume. This too is wrong because they have been made to be a more affordable and convenient alternative. While you do have to spend some money in the early days, those costs are quickly made up because cartridges are quite economical.

So while there are many myths about e-cigarettes, as you can see, if you dig a little deeper the truth is there! With very, very few negatives, and a world of positive, electronic cigarettes have taken an enormous hold over the smoking world. Learn the facts, and happy vaping!

NY Bans E-Cigs Sales to Minors

New York has just banned the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors, as of January 1st. One of the nation’s most determined states when it comes to keeping cigarettes and nicotine products out of the hands of the youth, New York is known for being pretty tough on smokers. This new legislation however, is a great thing for e-cigs. It gives them further credibility, and quiets down the critics who claim they are made to target teenagers.

E-cigarettes, unlike traditional cigarettes are not marketed towards children. They have been made for smokers, as an alternative. They are not made to lure in potential smokers, regardless of age, and definitely not those underage! They are designed to be similar to cigarettes so that smokers can get used them, and to keep them familiar. Since the inception of electronic cigs, since they hit the market, people have tried to claim that they are attempting to appeal to children and teens with their many flavors. EverSmoke, and any responsible e-cigarette companies have already had in place measures to keep those under the age of 18 from purchasing their products. If you analyze the vast majority of advertisements for e-cigarettes you will find that they do not use marketing tactics to entice young people. It is a niche market that appeals to adults who are current smokers!

While it has not been illegal until now for minors to purchase e-cigarettes in New York, it would be interesting to actually see figures on how many young people beneath the legal age are using them. I am sure it isn’t many. They are not exactly the “hot new thing” for young people; they are more likely to be used by these very same kids’ parents to help them get away from cigarettes! E-cigs are not a gateway sort of product; they are usually used by people looking to stop smoking! When it comes to technology, kids aren’t interested in things like alternative cigarettes… they are more inclined to go after high-tech gaming systems and iPhones. Less and less teens are smoking now than ever anyway, because tobacco doesn’t have the same cool factor as it once did. The new laws regarding e-cigarettes are a great thing; underage kids shouldn’t be using nicotine products, and this gives the electronic cigarette industry further fuel as legitimate cigarette alternatives!
