Make Summertime Vaping Even More Amazing!


Many of us can’t wait to dive into summer activities like swimming, boating, grilling out with friends and soaking up the beautiful sunshine while doing all the other things you enjoy when the weather is warm and the days are long.  And if you vape, you know how awesome those summer days can be with delicious flavors like Peach Passion and Pina Colada!

Of course, with the heat and humidity there comes a few things we should all heed when it comes to getting the most out of your favorite vaping device during the summer months.

The vapor output of your electronic cigarette can be negatively affected by high heat and humidity if you aren’t careful. Here are some tips to make sure your vaping device doesn’t come down with a case of summertime sadness:

  • Careful where you leave it.  A hot car in the summer months is the worst place to leave your vaping device lying around.  Did you know that when it is 90 degrees outside, it can be 150 degrees or more in your car? Yikes, that’s hot! This is why we never leave pets and kids (or your electronic cig) in these stifling conditions.
  • Store e -juice in a cool, dark place.  Some people go overboard and store their electronic cigarettes and e-liquid in freezers.  However, this practice is not good for your e-liquid.  We advise not to store your device below 55 degrees.  Long-term extreme cold temperatures can affect the flavor of your electronic cigarette just like heat does. See our article on properly storing your vaping supplies
  • Prepare for summer thunderstorms!  Not only do you want to protect your device from rain, but also from those power outages during summer thunderstorms.  Be prepared and make certain you have plenty of battery backup so you don’t miss a beat.
  • Stay away from sand.  While you can (and should) definitely experience the joy of vaping on the beach, try and keep the sand from getting into your device where it can clog it up.  If you are bringing a bag or purse, store it in there until you’re ready to use it.
  • Keep it safe! Lastly, make certain you safely carry your electronic cig in a special holder or carrying case so that it doesn’t accidentally get crushed or damaged during all of the summertime activity.

Go make some amazing summer memories and enjoy vaping while you’re at it!

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!

Tips for a Longer Battery Life


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-Cig Batteries: Technologically Amazing, Technically Awesome

eversmokeInHandE-cigarettes are powered by batteries, and the majority of these are lithium ion, meaning they are made of lithium and carbon. Considered by many to be the best for their powerful output and lightweight construction, they are the lifeblood and brainpower behind even the most advanced electronic cigarettes.

In addition to being a source of power, e-cigarette batteries contribute a lot of the overall experience of vaping. They are typically the main component of the e-cigarette, meaning the body of the device it usually the battery itself. They come in two different switch styles, Manual (turns on with a switch) and Automatic (no switch, automatic turn-on), and both e-cig styles offer benefits to the user depending on what they want in an e-cig battery.

Lithium ion batteries have not been in existence a tremendously long time; they were first introduced to the market in 1997. A more modern type of battery, unlike older styles which required a metal case, lithium ion batteries can be housed in more flexible casings, enabling them to fit specific devices.

Lithium ion batteries are loaded with benefits, and very few downfalls, which is another reason they are awesome for e-cigarettes. They can hold a charge for a very long time, they boast a light weight, they are very powerful holding a great amount of stored energy, and they can handle hundreds of charging and discharging cycles.

As for negatives, there are a few you have to contend with when using lithium ion e-cigarette batteries. For starters, they have a shelf life; they literally begin degrading once they exit the factory, whether they are used or not. You can expect them to last between two and three years however, so even though they do not last forever, they will last a while. Other negatives include the fact that they are typically more expensive batteries, and they have a sensitivity to heat which can be their demise.

If you’re stumped on what e-cigarette battery switch style to go with, have a look at our article on the subject.

When it comes to vaping, users have many choices with their lithium ion e-cig batteries, from switch style to color, size, and brand. They are the best types of batteries for vaping and their many benefits outweigh the few negatives: powerful, long lasting, and very versatile make them the top choice of power when it comes to e-cigarettes.

The Importance of Protecting E-Cig Batteries from Heat


Sometimes it can feel like you need advanced degree to keep our phones, P.D.A.’s and laptops working. According to findings by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), lithium-ion batteries perform at their best if kept at temperatures between 14°F and 86°F. Moreover, battery experts say that the number one cause of battery problems is too much heat. Batteries that get too warm drain faster than they normally would. Therefore, you should think of electronics as if they were a baby or a dog—if it’s hot outside, don’t leave it in the car.

Batteries are also affected by humidity and other weather extremes— they can bulge, bubble, melt, damage your device, smoke, and in (very) extreme cases, even blow-up. Some examples of areas to avoid bringing lithium-ion batteries are in a non-temperature controlled room, in a closed bathroom with the shower on, in a closed car on a hot day, or in a steam-room or a sauna.

The necessity of keeping your lithium ion battery cool

Standard Li-ion battery chemistry depends on electrolytes that react with a residual moisture to create hydrofluoric acid, the most corrosive of all chemical compounds. The speed of this process doubles with every increase in temperature of 10 degrees Celsius—resulting in a reduced calendar and cycle life. Moreover, not only does this mean that there is a run-time degrade with age, but it means that each subsequent charge discharge further reduces it.

This damage occurs until the battery just doesn’t last long enough between charges. In addition, the damage created by the increase in temperature is exacerbated the more you use your battery – therefore, the more power your device needs or the faster you charge it, the hotter the battery gets.

Electronic cigarettes provide smokers a smoke free alternative nicotine delivery method. When purchasing an e-cigarette, make sure that you properly care for your battery to ensure a long-lasting life.

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!

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.

Things Not to Do with Your E-cigarette

1236915_10152234354499358_581977267_n1Vaping is fun, it’s enjoyable, and it offers all the pleasure of smoking without the negatives that come with tobacco. For some e-smokers, things can get a little too comfortable, and some of their old tobacco habits can come creeping out with bad results. Here are a list of things not to do with your e-cig!

- Don’t keep it behind your ear; it weighs a bit more than a traditional cigarette and it can drop to its demise. If you want to display your e-cig as an accessory, enhance your personal style with an e-cig lanyard.

-Don’t toss it out the car window. Why were you doing that with your traditional cigarette anyway? Cigarette pollution is not cool, and neither is e-cigarette pollution (even if it’s devilishly humorous to consider how many people have done this only to lose their beloved e-cigs!). Simply, it’s an easy way to lose your e-cig and pollute the environment in one shot.

-Don’t assume your pocket is a safe storage location for an extended amount of time. Things fall out of pockets, and you never know what could be going on if you’re busy. Storage cases can be your best friends.

-Don’t store it in a bag, in a random pocket, in your luggage without protection, or in any other careless location, even if you are in a rush. This leaves your e-cigarette susceptible to damage; especially if your mind is on other things. It also can put your e-cig in a position to get harmfully dirty, which can affect performance or literally leave a bad taste in your mouth.

-Don’t leave it hanging in your mouth when you’re not using it. Seriously, it’s been done before and isn’t a smart idea. It’s not a papery, lightweight traditional cig, and it can drop without hesitation. Why risk it?

Protecting your e-cigarette, and treating it right can make it last a very long time, and it can ensure it performs with optimal results for as long as possible. If you want additional information on how to store your e-cigs safely, or to know more about protecting them, feel free to browse through our resources!

Accessories that Add Convenience

header_accessoriesWith all of the different options available to you with electronic cigarettes, one of the very best offerings comes with accessories. They enable so much additional convenience, plus they allow you to use the products in a more personal, tailored way. A selection of different e-cigarette chargers especially give you a variety of choices in how you keep your batteries powered up.

Here is a look at our many accessories, and how they can be used to enhance your experience when e-smoking. While they aren’t all necessities, they are highly valuable to your personal vaping.

Batteries: essentials, but also considered accessories. You don’t want to be without a few of these. Two size choices, two different switch styles, and three colors to choose from give you lots of variety.

Portable Charging Case: AKA the PCC, this charger is beyond handy, and no e-smoker should be vaping without it. It’s an outlet in your pocket, charging your batteries anywhere without needing to plug it in.

Power Cig: Simplify your vaping when you aren’t mobile with this battery. It works without needing charging, because it comes with an extra long cord to plug into an outlet. Beware, you will probably be tempted to vape a lot with this!

Wall Charger: Standard with all of our starter kits, and certainly worth your while to have an extra, the Wall Charger is a basic charger that plugs into the wall. An extra at work, one in your purse or bag, and one at home will ensure you’re able to charge just about everywhere.

USB Charger: Another standard charger, the USB Charger works with any USB outlet. Just like the Wall Charger, having a few of these is a good idea. Bonus for you, we also sell them in packs of three.

Car Charging Adapter: Mobile charging whenever you’re in the car; make the most of your commute! Being able to charge through your car’s outlet is especially useful if you spend a lot time driving.

Carrying Case: Stylishly and safely store your batteries, cartridges, and an extra USB charger in this case. It fits in a pocket, and will keep all your necessities secure and ready for use.

Lanyard: Keep your e-cig safely around your neck with the Lanyard. It’s ideal when you’re on the go, and need easy access.

When it comes to vapor smoking, accessories are what keeps things running smooth. You may not need a lot of them, but depending on what works for you, they were made to make your time vaping go smoothly. Convenience rocks!
