How to Take Care of Your E-Cig Cartridges

eversmoke-cartridgesE-Cigarette cartridges are an essential component to vaping. They hold the flavored nicotine e-liquid, are built to hold the atomizers, which are necessary for vaporizing the liquid, and they contain the mouthpiece for which the user puffs on. For all that they do, and all that they bring to the table, it’s important to know how to take care of your cartridges. Here are some tips to make sure you treat them right, and ensure that they will be lasting as long as possible, and performing to their fullest ability.

-Learn to use them properly. Obvious, right? Well, it’s really important that you know what you’re doing right off the bat if you want every cartridge to go as far as possible.

-Screw your cartridge onto the battery till it fits perfectly, and do not over tighten. That can cause it to function incorrectly, and not produce an adequate amount of vapor.

-E-cig cartridges do have a freshness lifespan. After opening, use within one week because after that period they begin to lose potency.

-Don’t do odd things like blow or exhale into the cartridge; they were not meant for any type of action other than puffing and inhaling on.

-Cartridges are disposable, unless stated otherwise, so do not attempt to fill them with liquids.

-They are meant to be stored at temperatures ideally below 75F, in dry conditions, so don’t expose them to water.

-If your cartridge gets hot while in use, discontinue using it until it cools off.

-When vaping, you should puff on your cartridge as you would if you were smoking a cigarette. 10 to 15 puffs, with around 5 seconds between each puff is about the equivalent of one traditional tobacco cigarette.

-When vaping, long, slow drags are the ideal way to do it; shorter, quicker puffing equates to less vapor production; no one wants that!

-It’s a smart idea to keep track of your usage, so you can have a better idea of how long your cartridges will last you. Track how many puffs you take during a session, because vaping is so enjoyable it can be easy to forget and get lost in the pleasure.

-Taste something burnt? That means the cartridge has come to an end, and it’s time for a new one.

E-cig cartridge maintenance can seem unnecessary because they are disposable and have a short lifespan, but they are a major part of the experience. Treat them right, and you will get a ton of enjoyment out of them, as well as making them last as long as possible!

Spring Cleaning! – Taking Care of Your Electronic Cigarette

branch of a blossoming tree

Spring has sprung again!  This means the weather is getting warmer (hopefully), beautiful flowers are beginning to bloom and of course, the annoying pollen that comes along with the beauty of the season.  However, it also means it is time to get that check list out of items to clean!

Closets, cupboards, cabinets may only need the once a year spring cleaning but your electronic cigarette needs a cleaning on a regular basis.

If you have owned one a while and have yet to clean it, spring is a good time to start!  Your Eversmoke electronic cigarette has hopefully been a great investment for you so make it a priority to care of it properly.  It will not only help to extend the life of your product but can make your vaping experience even more satisfying.

Below are suggestions and guidelines for proper cleaning of your Eversmoke electronic cigarette. (However, always check your manual of your particular device for exactly cleaning instructions)

The Battery

  • Residue and dirt can often get stuck in between where the cartridge and battery connect.  It is suggested that, at least once a week, you take a lightly dampened cotton swab and clean this area where the residue collects.
  • Some people have used alcohol to clean but definitely check your manual before doing that. It is very important to clean the residue so that there is a proper connection between the battery and cartridge
  • Proper cleaning of your battery can mean better function, more charges and a longer lasting battery.

The Cartridge (Cartomizer)

  • Most newer model electronic cigarettes are now made up of two parts, the battery and the cartridge or cartomizer (e.g. where the atomizer, or heating element, is built into the cartridge).
  • The cartridge and atomizer used to be sold separately and would need cleaned separately but most are now combined.
  • Eversmoke offers disposable cartridges where it is not necessary to clean since it will be thrown away.
  • Eversmoke provides prefilled cartridges which means less mess and spills.
  • However, you may have a different type of model and you need to make sure that you clean the cartridge regularly where juices may have spilled and are possibly “caked” on to the cartridge.
  • You can take a small toothpick and gently break off the caked on material if the cloth will not work.

Bottom line, clean and take care of your electronic cigarette.  It will pay off for you! More TLC generally means a longer lasting electronic cigarette as well as better quality vaping.

Happy spring, happy cleaning and most of all…happy vaping!

Dealing with the Snow: Enjoying e-cigs no matter what the weather

Winter Snow Storm Hammers Northeastern USThis year’s nonstop onslaught of inclement weather throughout the US has seen unprecedented amounts of snow and crazy conditions, attributed to the lovely polar vortex. Who ever heard of winter storms getting names? Wasn’t that a luxury once reserved only for hurricanes? It seems as though no sooner than areas recover from one storm, it’s time to prepare for the next blizzard and subsequent days of freezing temperatures.

While it can be a wonderful thing to be an e-smoker rather than a tobacco smoker during the winter, especially when you don’t have to bundle up just for a 5 minute smoke break, there are things to keep in mind if you will be vaping during this particularly brutal winter!

So if you are a vaper, how do you deal? Here are some tips for handling the weather and still enjoying your e-cigarettes in the process.

When Losing Power is of Concern:

How will you charge your e-cigarette batteries if you have no power? Obviously that is a big deal, however you do have options. Having a Portable Charging Case would be really ideal in this situation, as it can charge your batteries 4 times before it needs to be recharged. Another option would be to have a nice supply of disposable e-cigarettes, which do not require charging and they can be used right out of the package.

If You Leave Town:

Traveling with e-cigarettes can be done easily. Make sure to pack enough extra batteries, cartridges, a couple of versatile chargers, and whatever accessories you use to keep things simple. Even though you may have to leave quickly, it’s always important to have a supply of extra cartridges just in case of emergencies, you’re covered. Disposable e-cigarettes are also a great example of what to have on hand in case of an emergency.

If you’re Sticking it Out, Trying Not to Go Stir-Crazy:

Make sure your e-cigs are handy and make sure you’ve got plenty of gear to keep you warm. If you’ve got power, turn the heat up to a comfortable temperature; if you’ve got a fireplace take full advantage of it and get burning bright. Huddle close in to your loved ones and/or animals, and vape on dreaming of summer!

Enjoying E-Cigarette Flavor to the Max

EverSmoke-cartridges-e1336266299663Flavor is one of those personal choices when vaping that matters a great deal. You have many options, and it may be rather intimidating when choosing a single flavor, but relax, it can be done successfully!

Choosing a flavor:

With EverSmoke, you have 10 flavors to choose from:

Classic Tobacco

Royal Tobacco

Golden Tobacco

Cool Menthol

Peach Passion

Pina Colada

Peppermint Party

Cherry Crush

Coffee Creation

Very Vanilla

If going with just one flavor doesn’t seem easy enough, you do have the option of purchasing our Flavor Sampler, which comes with one cartridge in each of our 10 flavors. This is perfect for beginners, and also for those who have been using just one e-cig flavor and are curious about switching things up.

When it comes to enjoying flavor:

When switching to e-cigarettes from traditional cigarettes, one aspect that may surprise some smokers is that the longer they stay away from cigarette smoke, the more of their taste and smell capacities they can recover.

It has long been known that tobacco cigarettes harmfully impact the senses of taste and smell, and upon quitting, many former smokers find that they are able to truly taste things they had not in years. For many, as you can imagine, it’s quite pleasant!

For Beginners:

When you switch to e-cigarettes from tobacco, understand that your taste buds are  undergoing a serious transition and can take some time to get used to things being smoke-free. Switching between a few flavors from the beginning is a good idea because it helps prevent burnout from using only one, and it can help ease away from the smoke and keep your taste buds fresh.

Drink lots of water. This may seem a little (or a lot) odd, but many e-cigarette users report that it helps keep the taste buds fresher, and it can help cleanse your palate so you continue to enjoy the full, rich flavor.

One of the best aspects of e-smoking is the ability to enjoy the flavor, and especially when switching over from conventional smoking, as having more options can be so exciting. Don’t let fear or a lack of understanding get in your way when it comes to enjoying the flavor of your e-cigarettes!

Some Tips for Making the Switch

130023977__436746cIf you are a smoker, or a former smoker, you know that tobacco cigarettes are one of the hardest habits to ditch. So many smokers have embraced the possibilities of electronic cigarettes, and they have found an incredible compromise with them; similar feel, similar taste, and nicotine without the tobacco smoke. However, when starting out, there is a bit of a learning curve that users should be aware of, because understanding how these products work can give you a much better end result. Here are some tips to keep in mind of, just to make the switch to e-cigarettes go more successfully for you.

-Go with a reputable electronic cigarette brand. Quality varies, and some brands are better than others. Choose wisely.

-Don’t be dismayed by the cost of starter kits; these costs make themselves up in time, and cartridges are considerably less expensive than cigarette packs.

-Disposable e-cigarettes are a great way to try e-smoking at an affordable price. So are EverSmoke Express Kits.

-Learn about your e-cigarettes. You should soak up all the information you can; learn how to use them most effectively. Learn about different techniques to keep them in good shape. Learn about how to get the most powerful throat hit. It will all contribute to a better overall experience.

-Don’t expect your tobacco cigarette cravings to disappear immediately. Of course, it varies from one user to the next, but if you prepare yourself to deal with cravings you will be able to handle them better.

-Transitioning to e-cigarettes is easier for some more than others; for some it goes quickly and within a week they’ve made the switch completely. For others it can take a few months.

-If you think switching will be difficult for you, allow yourself time to slowly lessen your tobacco use while alternating with e-cigarettes until you’re comfortable.

-When you’ve been smoking traditional cigarettes for an extended amount of time, your body becomes used to carcinogens and loads of toxins. Your body needs time to adjust to not having them.

We know how difficult cigarettes are to leave behind, and we want to help you enjoy e-smoking. We want switching to vapor to be easy on you, and hopefully a step towards becoming totally smoke-free. Hopefully these tips for switching to e-cigs have been helpful!

All About the Flavor

url-11One of the most pleasing aspects of vaping as opposed to smoking are the many flavors you are able to use on a daily basis.

Flavored e-cigarette cartridges make life for vapers just a little more interesting. Sure there are those who enjoy strictly tobacco or menthol flavors, but having more flavors to choose from can enhance your experience in ways you may not be used to with regular cigarettes.

Flavored e-cigarettes are also really enjoyable because one of the benefits of no longer smoking traditional tobacco is that taste buds tend to recover some of their ability to truly taste again. Smoke can dull them, and smokers are often quite amazed by their renewed ability to enjoy the satisfaction of flavor. E-cigarettes come in quite useful here, upping the intensity of the experience for the user.

EverSmoke offers a wide selection of flavors that have been designed to appeal to many different users. With three different versions of tobacco: Golden Tobacco, Royal Tobacco, and Classic Tobacco cover the basics of tobacco cigarette flavors. Golden is superbly rich, similar to European and Turkish blends. Royal is like smooth, clean American blends. Classic Tobacco, however, offers a full-bodied flavor similar to the majority of tobacco blends available on the market.

EverSmoke’s other varieties of flavor include coffee, menthol, peppermint, cherry, vanilla, peach, and pina colada.  Each flavor offers something different for all palates: sweet, fruity, traditional and minty. This variety and detail to taste sets EverSmoke apart from the rest. We work with our flavorists to ensure that you have the best tasting and the best, USA made, quality e-juices.

When smoking cigarettes, most smokers tend to stick to the same brand exclusively and they don’t really consider the option of switching around with flavors. Vaping is different, and offers users the ability to get as creative as they like with flavors, allowing them to change them as often as they like. Just like so many other aspects, electronic cigarettes offer users so much to choose from, so many more ways to enjoy them, and the ability to have a more personalized and enjoyable smoking experience.

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 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!

Nicotine Strength: How to Choose

Eversmoke-Starter-Kit1-e1336265414846There is much to be said about nicotine strength. It’s one of those fascinating, wonderful options about using electronic cigarettes that makes vaping really one-up the alternative.

For new users, knowing how to choose can be confusing and one of those questions that comes up a few times. To say it’s easy would not really be accurate, because in actuality, it all depends on the individual user.

One misconception is actual use. Heavy users may not prefer the strongest nicotine strength because part of smoking for them may be all about the act of vaping. Lesser levels may work out better. In other instances, lighter smokers may want heavier levels of nicotine because even though they choose to smoke less, they still want the same nicotine satisfaction without cravings, and vice versa.

With five different choices in electronic cigarette nicotine strength, having the ability to choose may seem rather daunting. Which will be the right one for your needs all depends on what you’re used to and what you want. As is the case with flavor, most people don’t just use one. When you have so many options, and no reason to always stick to the same old path, get creative and get experimental. How else are you going to find the best way to do it?

Don’t overlook the benefits of trying a few before settling on one!

The simplest guide to understanding nicotine strength is to compare. Nicotine is measured by the amount of nicotine per milliliter, and we offer five options. Here is a look at how each milligram level compares to traditional cigarettes:

Bold: 24mg, similar to the strongest cigarettes, and non-filtered cigarettes available.

Full-Flavored: 18mg, equivalent to most traditional types of cigarettes.

Light: 12mg, right along the lines of standard “lights.”

Ultra Light: 6mg, comparable to the strength of “ultra lights.”

No Nicotine: 0mg, just as the name states, these contain no nicotine, and they are available in all of our flavors.

While there are so many vast differences between electronic cigarettes and traditional cigarettes, we do our best to keep things similar and comfortable for smokers. Modern innovation is great, however we tailor our products to meet the needs of smokers, not inundate them with new concepts. So try some of our different nicotine cartridges, and see what it’s all about!

 

E-Cigarette Parts & How They Work

eversmoke-cigaretteDo you ever wonder about how e-cigarettes work, and how their parts come together to get the job done? It’s really amazing when you think about how these parts work in conjunction to create an experience that is so much like actually smoking a cigarette.

State of the art technology has allowed us to create a product whose end result is giving users more satisfaction than ever!

The main components are the e-cigarette battery, cartridge, and charging device, but there really is so much more to each of these basics. Here is a look at e-cigarette parts and how they work, creating an incredible alternative to tobacco cigarettes.

E-Cigarette Battery: Essentially the body of the e-cigarette, and the most important part of vaping. When the user begins inhaling, or activates the battery by pressing a button if it’s a manual battery, the sensor gets activated. The sensor, also known as the “smart chip microprocessor” signals the battery to turn on, and sends a charge to the atomizer, located in the cartridge, to begin producing the vapor.

One important tip to remember is that batteries perform best when they are charged to 100% before the first use.

Lithium Ion Cell: The actual battery, and power source of the e-cigarette. It is rechargeable, and is regarded as the most powerful, and durable type of e-cigarette battery.

Aluminum Shell: The e-cigarette’s exterior. Lightweight yet quite durable, it is protective and still comfortable in the hand.

Sensor: Also called the Operating Mode Sensor, this mechanism triggers the smart chip, which signals the battery to activate the atomizer.

Smart Chip Microprocessor: Also known as the Microcomputer Smart Chip, this component is responsible for the actual technology that happens within the e-cigarette. It communicates to the battery, signaling the atomizer to vaporize the liquid nicotine.

Cartridges: These are the reusable “filters” that connect to the batteries. They come with a built-in atomizer, and are pre-filled with USA-Made nicotine juice. They screw onto the batteries, and the opposite end holds a silicon mouthpiece, which is very comfortable for the user to puff on.

Atomizer: The atomizer vaporizes the nicotine liquid, creating the vapor that is inhaled. Atomizers react to a charge sent by the battery. They are built into the cartridges because they do not have the capacity to last long.

Chargers: Three e-cigarette chargers are available for use when charging your batteries: the Portable Wall Charger, the USB Charger, and the Vehicle Charging Adapter. Also available is the Personal Charging Case, which allows for all the mobility an e-cigarette smoker could want because it charges batteries without a separate power source.

E-cigarettes utilize state of the art technology as well as impeccable engineering to create a satisfying, enjoyable smoking experience, minus the actual tobacco and smoke. Each part plays a crucial role in how it all comes together, allowing for the ultimate in modern innovation, as well as pleasure and convenience.
