E-Cigs: Commuting and Car Travel

uk-electronic-cigarettesYou know how it goes when smoking in your car. If you’ve got nonsmokers traveling or commuting with you, and you opt to smoke, it may create some conflict.

Even if you don’t have passengers and you smoke in the car, you probably know all too well all the negatives that come along with it. Annoying things like burning your seats or upholstery, dropping your ash all over the place, the smell that never seems to go away, and the most detrimental possibility being the distraction they can cause.

While you may not consider the many benefits of e-cigs in their other contexts, when it comes to smoking in the car they are so much more convenient than smoking tobacco.

E-cigs in the car can save you the trouble and stress of the mess, as well as possibly downgrading your car’s value due to cigarette damage. You won’t be dropping ash, burning anything, or permeating your seats with the tobacco odor. Your passengers; whether they’re friends or carpoolers, won’t be disgruntled over the offensive toxic smoke and odor. Plus, none of these negatives will be distracting you!

Having the right accessories is one of the best features of using e-cigs in any situation.

In the car, they allow you so much freedom and can ensure you’re always set to vape. The car adapter charger allows you to charge your batteries from your car’s outlet.

Whether you are commuting or traveling long distances, you have the ability to make the most of your time by charging up. Another option that works really well when you know you’re going to be in the car for a long period of time is using the Personal Charging Case. This case charges batteries as it holds them, without an additional power source, giving you the freedom of wireless, mobile charging!

When it comes to enjoying nicotine in the car, the only way to do it right is with e-cigs. They are simply better for you, the people carpooling with you, your car, and having all around convenience!

Check our excellent selection of accessories to make it all work for you! Smoking in your car just got very interesting!

How to Choose a Nicotine Strength

how-to-choose-a-good-scientific-problem-300x168When starting out with electronic cigarettes, it can seem confusing when choosing your nicotine strength. It’s totally different than when you were smoking cigarettes, so it’s kind of a new topic to work with.

Choosing flavors and battery styles can present some decision making, but when it comes to your overall satisfaction, especially when dealing with nicotine cravings, nothing has a greater effect than what nicotine level you are using.

In case you are wondering, we offer 5 different nicotine strengths: 24mg, 18mg, 12mg, 6mg, and 0mg.

Here is a look at each individual level, for an idea which level may fit your style best.

24mg is considered Bold, and offers the strongest nicotine you will find in a cartridge. This level is perfect for those smokers who are accustomed to smoking heavily. It’s also great for users who want to vape less but still have a high nicotine level.

18mg is Full Flavored, and this nicotine strength is equivalent to “reds” or general full strength cigarettes. It provides a very adequate amount of nicotine, and is highly satisfying.

12mg is Light, and it’s like smoking a traditional light cigarette. It is balanced perfectly for those who want a moderate nicotine level.

6mg is Ultra Light, and these offer our lowest nicotine level. If you are actively decreasing your nicotine strength or just want to use a very low amount, this is your strength!

0mg Non Nicotine, just like the name and number state, this is our nicotine-free level. Loaded with flavor minus the nicotine, this level allows you to vape purely for the experience of vaping.

If you still aren’t sure which level will suit your needs, may we suggest trying several different levels. Some users find that alternating levels works best for them, as they want more or less nicotine at different times.

Nicotine can be a personal choice, and the further you get into vapor smoking, you may find your needs change and you may want more or less nicotine as time goes on. Vape and adjust accordingly!

Why Do I Have a Sore Throat? Is it My E-Cig?

sore-throatThe electronic cigarette experience and the throat hit is a very common discussion with vaping, however sometimes e-smokers run into the occasional issue. One of the most common being sore throats.

Sore throats and smoking are quite common. For many users, when switching over to electronic cigarettes, a sore throat is sometimes experienced, and at first thought, one may wonder if it is the e-cigarette causing it. However, this is one of the telltale signs of withdrawal from traditional cigarettes. It often seems like a reaction to the e-cigarette, in actuality it is more likely a reaction to no longer smoking cigarettes.

However, this isn’t to say that your electronic cigarette may never cause a sore throat! Sometimes the problem can lie within the  common differences between PG and VG e-liquid. When using electronic cigarette cartridges and liquids that are PG- (propylene glycol) based, the result can be an overly dry mouth and throat, leading to a sore feeling. If you are using this type of product, and have just stopped smoking traditional cigarettes, the effect of both of these combined can be quite uncomfortable!

If using electronic cigarette has caused you to experience a sore throat under these circumstances, there are a few things you can do to remedy it.

First of all, if you suspect the culprit is the PG in your liquid, do yourself a favor and switch to a VG (vegetable glycerin) based product. As a natural, plant-derived substance, it is much more gentle on the system, and adverse reactions are not at all common, which is not the case with PG.

Check you nicotine level, it may be too high. Some smokers automatically go for the highest nicotine level available, and sometimes it’s more than your body can handle. If you are using a very strong cartridge, such as 24mg or 18mg, go down a level and see how it feels.

Drinking a generous amount of water can help sooth your throat, as can consuming beverages that have moisturizing properties to them, such as tea made with honey and lemon.

Above all, if your sore throat is truly due to no longer smoking cigarettes, keep in mind that this reaction should pass. If you are new to vaping, remember that there is a learning curve involved with really getting the hang of these products. Learn as much as you can, and find out what works for you. In a short amount of time, you (as well as your system) will be used to electronic cigarettes!

Why Prefilled Cartridges are Better than Using Liquids

250-250-eversmoke-cartomizers-refills-flavored-cartsWith so many different types of electronic cigarettes available, you may be stumped when deciding which method suits you best. Is it better to go with 2-piece style e-cigs that use disposable cartridges, or opt for the types you fill yourself?

Cartridges are the better option for several reasons, and while liquids promise you more control over the whole process, they come with many more inconveniences and limitations.

When using e-liquids to fill your own e-cigarette, you have to be really careful. These liquids are not meant to come into contact with skin, and can be dangerous. You have to be precise, and follow the manufacturer’s directions to their every word. They are not things the average e-smoker should be experimenting with, so it’s really important to know what you’re doing. Filling liquids yourself is far from convenient; imagine having to do it in a rush. Or how about when you’re out of the house and someplace without a steady surface to ensure you can get an accurate pour in? Plus, there are so many different companies selling them all over the internet; how do you know who is legit? And how can you be sure of the quality of the liquid? When it comes to what you put into your body, always do your research and do not take unnecessary chances!

You can avoid all of that sketchiness by choosing a top, reputable brand known to have very high standards (aka EverSmoke). While e-liquid companies may try marketing you away from products such as ours, citing a lack of control, we have in place many standards and regulations to ensure the quality is 100% there.

Cartridges are much more convenient for several reasons, mostly for how easy they are to use. Each one lasts between 1.5-2 cigarette packs, making them go much longer than the standard pack of 20. They are easy to use; all you have to do is screw them on and off the battery, and you will know when a cartridge is finished because it will cease to produce more vapor.

Another great reason to use EverSmoke cartridges is that they are made with only USA-made e-liquids. This makes them exceptionally fresh, intensely flavored, and very potent. USA quality means they do not come from overseas, and they don’t spend long amounts of time in transit and shipping; making them fresher by the time they reach the customer. They also offer an incredible vapor throat hit with every use!

Messing with liquid is far from enjoyable; it takes a lot of ease out of vaping. Don’t be fooled by promises of control and convenience; opt for high quality cartridges like those from EverSmoke!

Celeb News! Olivia Munn & Joel Kinnaman Enjoy E-Cigarettes

quick-pics-116Celebrities and electronic cigarettes go hand in hand, and we’re always getting reports about who’s using our’s now. It makes total sense; ever since our products hit the market, stars have taken to them. They epitomize quality and style, while making very nice accessories when using them around town. Sleek looks, a crystal tip that glows orange, and amazingly smoke-like, voluminous vapor are what we’re known for, and just part of the reason celebs love them so!

We love celebrity sightings, and the latest one comes from a report in OK! Magazine, featuring the lovely Olivia Munn seen vaping with our e-cigarettes at Comic Con. Olivia, joined by her boyfriend Joel Kinnaman were hanging out at the Playboy and Universal Pictures Kick-Ass 2 party, smoking electronically and enjoying Patron tequila. It must have been an awesome party! This is not the first time the couple has been spotted with electronic cigarettes, as just a few months ago they were photographed while dining at a West Hollywood café vaping as well.

Joel, a Swedish-American actor, has been quite open about his struggle with tobacco. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, he talked about how he started originally with dipping tobacco, which he quit and then started smoking cigarettes. He later quit cigarettes for chewing gum, but ditched it because a constantly clenched jaw led to headaches. He states that quitting isn’t the issue for him; it’s actually more of a problem that he starts up again! Well, we have to say that we are very much proud of his efforts, especially for choosing wisely in his efforts of a tobacco-free smoking experience!

Olivia and Joel are certainly not the lone e-smokers in Hollywood by any means! They join a large list of intelligent smokers who are choosing EverSmoke as their preferred electronic cigarettes, and we applaud them for having good taste!

Keeping Your E-Cigarettes Charged & Ready!

EverSmoke-Charger-e1336266489732Convenience is on the minds of most e-smokers, and we make a wide array of products to help you out when it comes to keeping your e-cigarette batteries charged and ready for use. We want our products to fit into your life, and we want them to be as convenient as possible. Here is a look at how our accessories will make your batteries happy, whenever you need them to! Being ready in a moment’s notice can mean so much, and can be the trick to making vaping work out successfully for you!

You can’t vape without battery power, and it’s really important to know the ins and outs of how your batteries work so you aren’t left learning them after your batteries run out of power. When you first get your batteries, even if they have some power to them, don’t use them until after you have charged them up to full capacity. This is so important, and can make your battery last longer in the long run.

You will know when your battery needs recharging because the vapor gets significantly reduced. If it has been charged fully, then the culprit most likely is that the cartridge needs to be changed.

Get to Know Our Chargers

We have four different chargers available, and variety really makes things accessible for everyone. Choose between the portable wall charger, USB charger, car adapter, and the Personal Charging Case.

Portable Wall Charger

This is the standard, basic e-cigarette battery charger. Like the types that come with cell phones, it plugs into the wall, connects to your e-cig, and charges. It can be used just about anywhere there is an outlet.

USB Charger

Most people use their computers pretty regularly, and the USB charger connects to your computer or keyboard’s USB hookup. Very convenient, and gives you the ability to charge in another simple and practical way.

Car Charger Adapter

This charger works with the USB charger to allow charging batteries using the power adapter in your car. This mobile charging setup is great for people who spend a lot of time in their cars and want to multitask as much as possible.

Personal Charging Case

We saved the best for last with this one. No e-smoker who vapes a lot should be without this charger. It lets you charge batteries wherever you are, without needing any type of outlet; computer, car, or wall! It’s a case, so it holds your batteries as it charges them, and it is small enough to fit into a pocket. It serves multitudes of purposes, is extremely convenient, and is an overall benefit to the customer. This accessory allows you to never have to worry about running out of power at the worst moment, it allows you to do as you please and know your batteries are ready when you want then!

Enjoying your e-cigarette is what electronic smoking is all about, and you just can’t do it without a charged battery! You’ve got four options, so use them to stay satisfied!

How to Store Your Electronic Cigarette Supplies

accessories_carrying_caseWe’re always concerned about the needs of our users, and this often includes ways to keep your products in good shape. Being organized is always a benefit, so if you’re looking for ways to keep your electronic cigarette stash organized and secure, learn about the different accessory options we have available to ensure they are always where you want them when you need them!

E-Cigarette Storage for the Long Term

If you are looking for ways to keep all of your e-cigarette products and gear together in one safe container for the long haul, any type of container is suitable. Try to stay away from using metal boxes that have the ability to conduct electricity, as these can shorten battery lifespan. If you have a large selection of products and pieces, many customers have found crafter’s tool boxes or fishermen’s tackle boxes to offer the easiest, compact storage. They make it easy to find what you’re looking for when you have several chargers, backup chargers, extra batteries, and especially if you order large supplies of refill cartridges. One thing to keep in mind is that storing your goods near heat, moisture, or light is not conducive; these elements can have an ill effect on your batteries by shortening their overall lifespan and performance.

Storing for the Short Term

When you vape, preparing for daily use is essential. At the same time, it’s also quite imperative to plan for the long term and have a few pieces of backup equipment. An extra battery or two, an extra charger or two (or three), and extra cartridges are very much necessary because you just never know when you’re going to need them. So when it comes to planning for daily use, one of our carrying cases can do wonders to make sure your e-cigarettes are ready for vaping in any situation. They are slim, sleek, and able to hold your essentials. Plus they easily fit into any bag, purse, or pocket!

Storing When Traveling

Carrying cases are the best ways to hold your supplies, but if you are traveling and need a little extra room for your batteries, cartridges, and chargers, simple cosmetic bags work really well for holding your items.

Specialty Accessories

Our Personal Charging Case, Lanyard, and the Power Cig are amazing accessories that add further options to your life. These accessories give you additional freedom and the ability to safely store your e-cigs so that you have them as soon as you need them. In the case of the Power Cig, you have the freedom to not charge your battery, as it consists of a battery hooked up to a cord that connects directly to the power source. You can vape for as long as you like with it, without worrying about battery life. Be warned however, it can be so much fun to use that you may find yourself going through cartridges much quicker than usual!

Electronic cigarettes do not have to be complicated by any means. They can be as enjoyable as traditional cigarettes, if not more so, and there are numerous ways to stay organized. Alternative cigarettes really do let you have the best of both worlds when it comes to nicotine, conveniently!

 

 

Life Span and Cost: Are E-Cigs Worth It?

smoking-electronic-e-cigarettes-500x500There is much debate about e-cigarettes, their cost, and whether or not smokers should switch due to the cost. Are alternative cigarettes really worth it?

In this piece, we will look at the different costs involved, and why e-cigarettes are the better choice for the money spent.

Cigarettes are expensive, that is a fact well known. They are a really pricey habit for most because the majority of smokers are not sticking to just a few a smokes day; it’s usually a habit that stretches to a pack a day, or more. Cigarette packs, involving typically 20 cigarettes per pack, start around $7 a pack, and are known to go up to around $12 a pack in certain metropolitan areas. Doing the math, it can be anywhere between $49 and $84 weekly, or $200-$335 monthly. Ouch!

The thing with electronic alternatives is that there is an upfront cost. You pay for your initial products, however this does not need to be a high cost. You may want to splurge on every accessory you see, but they are not necessities.

How Long do E-Cigarette Batteries Last?

With 2 sizes of batteries, they have different life spans. Generally speaking, with average use, and basic good care, a single e-cigarette battery lasts around 250 charges. We always recommend that customers have at least 2 batteries at a bare minimum. High Capacity batteries go for about 350 puffs between charges, and how often you charge them is based on how frequent you are vaping. Constant use will mean your battery will probably need recharging after about 2 hours, while a less frequent user will be able to make their battery last about 8 hours.

How Long do Cartridges Last?

It all depends on how individual users vape. A single cartridge lasts about 1-2 packs of traditional cigarettes, making them largely cost effective. Even heavy users find that one cartridge lasts about the same as 1 pack of cigarettes, equating one cartridge to a minimum of 20 cigarettes! Cartridge packs are sold in sets of 15, 30, and 45, so this is one instance where you really see how far your money goes with e-cigarettes compared to traditional.

Yearly Costs

For smokers who smoke one pack a day, the cost comes out to at least $2,000 yearly, while using the equivalent in cartridges is about $800, so the difference in price is more than 50%.

In the end, e-cigarettes save smokers a lot of money. Sure the cost if a starter kit stings compared to a $7 pack of cigarettes, but it gets made up in no time. Want save money while you smoke? Choose electronic and feel free to browse our great selection of products!
