add9a273Valentine’s Day is right around the corner (T-minus 2 days), so we thought it would be the perfect time to talk about how romantic vaping is. That’s right, vaping really is the sexier way to enjoy nicotine, and while traditional cigarettes may have been marketed as sexy and alluring in the past, those days have made way for the more enjoyable, more pleasing electronic alternative.

Vaping has become the cooler way to smoke in the past 5 years, and millions of people have switched to e-cigarettes as a result. In fact, at least 1 in 4 smokers have tried an e-cig! By obvious trends, it shows what an amazing effect they are having on people’s lives, and contributing to a more enjoyable way to enjoy a common pastime. And being so pleasurable, many of vaping’s positive benefits can be looked as sexy. So, in honor getting the love vibe on in honor of Valentine’s Day, here are a few ways being an e-smoker is super hot!

  • -No smoke equates to no smell. No longer smelling like smoke is awesome, because the foul odor of tobacco smoke is among the least attractive scents ever! “Tobacco smoke odor is a turn-on” said no one ever.
  • -Cleaner, more beautiful teeth, because a gorgeous smile is always sexy!
  • -Tobacco cigarettes harm the body tremendously, have a filthy stigma attached to them, and therefore being a smoker makes you seem dirty. Vaping is viewed as cleaner, more sanitary, and more people-friendly.
  • -A fresher home, because a clean, nice-smelling environment always sets a good ambiance for love.
  • -A smoker who constantly leaves their date to smoke gives off an attitude of indifference and being distracted. A vaper who stays and pays full attention to the person sitting opposite makes much better company; romantic or otherwise.
  • -E-cigs are just sexier devices. With a modern edge, and a techy-feel, they are intriguing.
  • -Vapor is simply sexy. The way it swirls through the air, the way it dissipates without a trace, the way it makes you feel… Tobacco smoking has seen its day, and vaping has totally become the better, hotter, more sexy way to smoke!

So this Valentine’s Day, enjoy the many pleasurable benefits that come as a result of vaping. If you and your partner share the lifestyle, even better! And if you are still looking to purchase an e-cigarette related gift for your special someone, a belated e-cigarette starter kit or couple’s starter kit will make the perfect, smoke-free Valentine’s Day gifts!

E-Cigs are NOT Tobacco Products!

vapor-vs-smokeIt is always puzzling how lobbyists and lawmakers attempt to classify electronic cigarette as tobacco cigarettes. With so many cities around the US grouping e-cigarette use in with tobacco use, and prohibiting usage in many of the same places, vapers feel unfairly targeted.

Sure, there are similarities, but they are absolutely, inherently different. They were designed to serve as “alternatives” and have stayed true to that premise throughout all of the countless innovations and reinventions that have occurred.

Need to know exactly how e-cigs and traditional cigs differ? Keep reading!

-There is No Tobacco: They work with a liquid nicotine solution, flavor, and 0 tobacco! Yes, nicotine is derived from tobacco, but there is no actual tobacco whatsoever involved in e-cigarettes. The devices are either filled with liquid, or a cartridge filled with liquid is attached; no tobacco gets used in the process, in any way!

-E-Cigs are Reusable Devices: No tobacco means there’s no tobacco to roll into a paper cigarette. While basic e-cigs look like the real thing, they are made of aluminum and plastic! Entirely different!

-Vapor Isn’t Smoke: they look similar, wafting through the air in a viscous, alluring manner, but they’re totally different. Polar opposites, even. Smoke is a product of burning matter; vapor is the gaseous form of water. Vapor has no smell, it dissipates, and does not leave behind resinous tar like tobacco smoke does.

-Battery Powered, Not Fire-Powered: E-Cigarettes, regardless of which style or variety, are powered by battery. Traditional cigarettes are powered by fire. There’s a huge difference there! Further proof you won’t be subjected to combustion!

-No Crazy Additives in E-Cigs: Most e-cigarette brands are straightforward about what’s in them. E-Liquid typically consists of a few necessary ingredients, such as water, PG (propylene glycol), VG (vegetable glycerin), nicotine, and flavorings. Unlike traditional cigarettes, that contain thousands of different chemicals, many of which are known carcinogens and toxins.

And those are just some of the basics, regarding the vast differences between electronic smoking and traditional tobacco smoking. While it is unfortunate that many still try to group them into the same category, there are inherent differences, and no matter how much an e-cigarette simulates the original, it will never be a tobacco cigarette.

Surgeon General Adds to the Ills of Tobacco Smoke

Quit-Smoking-CigarettesWe all know how negative tobacco cigarettes are, however 50 years into the war against tobacco, scientists are still finding new links between smoking and disease. In the most recent report to be released from the surgeon general, various factors were examined, revealing the current state of smoking in America, and new diseases to be attributed to tobacco.

While this probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who knows how toxic cigarettes are, it sure does give good reason for smokers to stay as far away from tobacco as possible, and make the switch to electronic smoking as an alternative. While the number of smokers is down drastically since 1964, when the surgeon general declared smoking to increase death 42% of adults were smoking, today the number steadies around 18%.

The newest report of diseases cigarette smoking contributes to include rheumatoid arthritis, Type 2 diabetes, macular degeneration, and erectile dysfunction, as well as two more types of cancer; liver and colorectal, and for mothers who smoke during pregnancy, infants can be born with cleft palate defects as a result.

The number of people who die each year from smoking-related causes is approximately half a million worldwide, with lung cancer still being the largest cause. It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female; the death rate among smokers equally affects men and women. Interestingly, as smoking rates have decreased, so have the number of lung cancer diagnoses at a rate of 3% among men, and 1% among women.

Also covered in the report were not only the medical statistics on tobacco and disease, but the financial effects of smoking related illnesses, which are costing the nation $130 billion, and an additional $150 billion annually due to lost productivity.

So what is the nation doing about the smoking problem? The one measure that has always seemed to work is raising the price of cigarettes. It has been found that for every 10% price increase, the rate of smoking drops 4%.

As an alternative, if you are a smoker, consider switching to electronic cigarettes. With no tobacco and no chance for smoke, you can steer clear of the stigma. And just to add to their many benefits, the cost is considerably lower! Millions have made the switch and have not looked back; check out our selection of e-cigarette starter kits today!

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!
