10 Tip for Vaping on the Go

Vaping on the GoHere are 10 tips for vaping on the go, because with life moving at light speed, and everyone having 1 million things going on at once, we need all the convenience we can get. If you want to make e-smoking fit into your busy life more easily, keep reading!

1. Prepare ahead of time. If you’ve a lot going on, having a strategy is central, and this extends even into your nicotine habit. Always think 10 steps ahead, then you can roll with the punches. So the night before, pack extra cartridges, extra chargers, and extra fully charged batteries with your gear and everything should be good.

2. Accessorize Your E-Cigs: Batteries, chargers, and cartridges are essential. The PCC is one of the best things to have, because outlet-free charging comes in handy big time! Don’t ever think you can get by with just the bare minimum.

3. Think organization. Arm yourself with a handy storage case for all of your e-cig storage needs.

4. Invest in commuter friendly accessories like the car charging adapter.

5. In your computer bag or iPad case, always keep a USB charger accessible. Because it’s so easy to power up your batteries from a digital device, it’s especially useful if you do this as you work. Killing two birds with one stone.

6. If work or life involves a lot of travel for you, keep abreast of all the different, ever-changing rules regarding e-cigarettes and airplanes. In short, keep all of your gear with you in your carry-on, and always pack extras, because delays, cancellations, and crazy things happen.

7. Commuter? Grab an e-cig lanyard for serious on-the-go convenience. This allows for hands-free, all-access vaping so if you’re in and out of buses, trains and taxis, you’re good to go.

8. Back it up. Keep extra cartridges at your desk at work for those emergency situations. An extra battery is not a bad idea either because things come up, and forgetfulness is real.

9. Pep up your step with exciting flavors! Traveling, working, whatever- any kind of business calls for a little stimulation and e-cig flavors can be the perfect pick me up. Vanilla, Java, Peach?

10. PowerCig. No you can’t use this gadget on the highway or in the (typical) office, but after a long, stressful day, unwinding with this baby will soothe your soul!

Holiday Travel and Vaping

Vaping and TravelTraveling for the holidays? Hitting the roads or the air to see your loved ones during the happiest time of the year? Blasting off for an end of the year vacay? Here’s the breakdown on what you need to know for traveling with e-cigs. They do make travel better than traditional cigs, and it goes even better when you’ve planned ahead.

How to Pack:

Packing your e-cigs correctly is an essential. It’s okay per the TSA to bring your e-cigs and accompanying gear along in your carry-on luggage, and that is the safest place to ensure they remain undamaged. Figure out how many cartridges you go through per week, figure out how often you need to charge batteries, and this will help you map out your quantities and limits on vaping. We can’t stress how important it is to know your habits!

Bring Extras:

Extras are imperative, because as you know with traveling, you should be prepared for anything, especially during this time of year when snow storms can cause major delays and cancellations. And, you most certainly can’t depend on being able to grab what you need any and everywhere! So pack extras to make sure during the madness, you’ve got what you need to keep things under control. Extra cartridges, extra batteries, extra chargers; catch my drift? You will probably need them!

Accessorize Accordingly:

A PCC can be your BFF. It charges your batteries on the go, no outlet necessary. In fact, it’s like a mobile outlet in your pocket! So, the minute you saunter off the plane, you will be able to whip out a fully charged, ready-to-vape e-cig!

And just as a reminder, when you’re flying high in the sky, don’t make any attempts at becoming part of the vaping mile high club; smokeless cigarettes are not permitted for use in aircraft! Happy holidays, and happy safe travels from everyone here at EverSmoke!

Summer Travel: Do it Right with E-Cigarettes

o-SUMMER-TRAVEL-facebookSummer means travel for many people, whether it’s by plane, boat, or car, regardless if it’s out of necessity, for work, or for pleasure. If you find yourself on the move this summer, here is a checklist to make sure you’re set as far as your e-cigarettes are concerned. Because no matter where you are headed, and what mode of transportation you’ll be using, electronic cigarettes and travel work so much better together than their tobacco counterparts.

Batteries: Having 2 or more is a smart idea. It’s always good to have at least 2, so that you aren’t without one while the other is charging, or just in case you lose one.

Cartridges: Don’t assume you’ll be able to find cartridges wherever you’re going; chances are, you purchase them online anyway, so prepare ahead of time and order extras for your trip because having a few more than you expect to need will set you up in the event of delays.

Accessories: You will need at least one charger. Having a couple options is smart, and you should consider what your environment during travel is going to be like. For instance, if you are going on a road trip,  a car charger would be a definite essential, as well as perhaps a USB charger and/ or a wall charger for those times you hit a hotel. If you are going on a cruise ship, a wall charger and a USB charger (if you are bringing a laptop or tablet) would be ideal.

Extras: Depending on the type of travel you are doing, there are a few other items that would be great to have along the way. The PCC, or Personal Charging Case is great for charging on the go without needing an outlet. Disposable e-cigs let you vape without setup, charging or cartridges, so if you’re really tight on time, they are great to have with you. The PowerCig would be awesome to have if you plan on veging out in your hotel room for hours at a time.

Electronic cigarettes are super versatile, and they really make traveling easier, especially if you are accustomed to the troubles of traditional cigarettes. Wherever your summer travels take you in the next few months, enjoy the journey as much as the destination while vaping!

E-Cig Friendly Airports

EuropeAirportTraveling with e-cigarettes is great, and certainly better than trying to do so with traditional cigarettes. However things can get tricky if you think every location stands by the same rules and perspective on electronic cigarettes. Some airports are fine with electronic alternatives, and others have strict policies that regard them as no different than tobacco cigarettes.

State and local laws regarding e-cigarettes are one thing, and traveling with them is another. Currently, you cannot use them in the airplane during any commercial flight, but certain airports are more lenient.

If you aren’t aware before you go, you could be in for a surprise when you at the airport expecting to be able to vape as you please. Here is a look at the different airports that are e-cigarette friendly, and those that are not.

The following is a list of the American airports that currently ban e-cigarettes, and require all users to smoke them, along with traditional tobacco cigarettes, in areas designated for smoking:

• Boston Logan International Airport
• Chicago Midway International Airport
• Chicago O’Hare International Airport
• Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport
• Denver International Airport
• Detroit Metropolitan Airport
• George Bush Intercontinental Airport
• Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
• Los Angeles International Airport
• Orlando International Airport
• Philadelphia International Airport
• San Francisco International Airport
• Seattle-Tacoma International Airport

And the following is a list of the airports that do allow e-cigarettes to be used in their terminals:

• Charlotte Douglas International Airport
• Dulles International Airport
• McCarran International Airport (Las Vegas)
• Miami International Airport
• Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport
• Ronald Reagan Washington International Airport
• Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport
• Tampa International Airport

As you may have noticed, none of the airports that serve the New York City area have been included on either list. They are, in any case, banned from use in any NYC airport terminal, and just to further this notion, with the Clean Air Act recently signed, using electronic cigarettes indoors in any public building in New York city is not allowed.

While traveling with electronic cigarettes is definitely the better option, especially compared to tobacco cigarettes, it’s quite important to know what you’re facing before you go! As with any trip, it’s always best to be as prepared as possible before you embark.
