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-cigslet 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.

Festival Season is On, Bring Your E-Cigs!

3e04d3b3a09d5027e959832d72afd7f0SXSW, the annual music and arts festival that takes over Austin, Texas is officially going on at the moment. Running from March 7-16, it’s a cultural extravaganza, with trendsetters, hipsters, and thousands of other artsy types flocking to take part! If you are going to be hitting the scene in Austin, we strongly encourage you to bring along your e-cigs, as they are totally welcome!

Large scale music festivals have gotten more popular than ever over the past few years, and while they are all about the music, dancing, style, and the uninhibited atmosphere, what they promise festival-goers is an amazingly good time. And, just like any environment where all things fashionable and trendy are celebrated, electronic cigarettes have become a staple at festivals.

In fact, it’s not uncommon for e-cigarettes to be considered part of the event, with major e-cigarette companies as sponsors and even handing out samples. Some festivals feature vaping tents, vaping lounges, and much promotion of electronic cigarettes in general. As anyone will tell you, hanging out with thousands of other people over the course of several days often in packed, sweaty conditions is much better when smoke is not involved!

At festivals, electronic cigarettes allow you to be immersed in all of the magic, surrounded by plenty of others, without annoying anyone with smoke. You won’t have to worry about accidentally burning anyone with a cigarette cherry, nor will you have to be concerned about searching for places to dispose of your cigarettes in proper places when you’re lost in the crowd; we all know that dropping butts on the ground is entirely not socially responsible!

E-cigarettes are also easier and much more convenient to use when you’re busy enjoying yourself, especially because accessories give a lot of leeway. Batteries last a while, and if you have a Portable Charging Case, you can charge your batteries without an outlet and have great e-cigarette storage for extra cartridges. You also have the option to use a lanyard to keep your e-cig safe around your neck, which is perfect if you will be dancing, or not carrying anything extra with you.

So if this year takes you to SXSW or any of the other major music and arts festivals happening around the country this spring and summer, bring your e-cigarettes! You’ll fit right in with the progressive atmosphere, and you save yourself from the hassles of smoke!

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!

Whether you keep them on hand for emergencies, or you occasionally like to switch things up for variety, there are so many reasons to use EverSmoke electronic cigarette disposables.

Travel: Traveling often requires you to think on your toes and make decisions in a snap. You often have to move quickly, and deal with some hustle and bustle. Changing cartridges, charging batteries, and staying on top of your e-cigarette gear can sometimes not be ideal, so when you’re traveling, make sure to bring disposable e-cigarettes along with you. They allow you keep things simple, plus unlike traditional cigarettes, you have the option to use them just about anywhere; airports, hotels, mass transportation, taxis, around nonsmokers… We say, enjoy the journey as much as the destination, and travel with ease using e-cigarette disposables!

Emergencies: power outages, hurricanes, unexpected situations; things come up, you need total convenience at certain times. Luckily with disposables you never need to set them up, prepare in advance or charge them before you use them. Open the package and they’re ready to go!

You’re Too Busy to Be Bothered: Life gets busy, and we all have those times when we are too busy to keep up with things. Sometimes, you’ve got too much on your plate that even the simplest of tasks and chores are a hassle. When life has you in one of these cycles, give our disposable e-cigarettes a try. They offer the most convenient e-cigarette experience without any extra effort. It’s times like these that can often make smoking cigarettes again seem appealing just for the convenience; don’t give in to that temptation! Remember that disposables are even easier, and will allow you to have smoke-free, luscious, nicotine-rich vapor whenever you need it!

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-cigsin 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!

Starter Kits or E-Cigarette Disposables: How to Know What’s Best for You

img_eversmoke_disposableHow do you know which electronic cigarette alternative will work best for you? If you are new to vaping, it can be difficult to choose, as both are designed for new users and experienced e-smokers and basically come down to personal preference.

The following is a look at the advantages of both.

Advantages of E-Cigarette Starter Kits

E-cigarette starter kits and e-cigarette disposables have many things in common, as well as their separate perks. Kits offer the benefits of being reusable, cost effective, and quite versatile. Many people appreciate that cartridges come in a very large array of flavors to choose from. They are also more environmentally friendly, as they produce very little waste.

There are several aspects to e-cigarette starter kits that make them seem less appealing, like risks and costs.

For instance, some smokers are reluctant to purchase starter kits because they are afraid they may not like the products. Most starter kits range in price from $40 to $200, and many don’t want to invest their money without liking the products.

On the positive side however, there are many companies that offer money-back guarantees and refunds, so if you are not satisfied, you are free to return the products.

And, while the initial cost may cause some to balk, the savings from e-cigarettes compared to traditional cigarettes is dramatic, and most smokers are quite happy at how much they begin to save after the first month.

Advantages of Disposable E-Cigarettes

These are the most common, easy to find alternative cigarettes. E-Cigarette disposables are excellent for their easiness, and many users start off with them because they are readily available at gas stations, convenience stores, and truck stops. They are single-piece units, and made to be used and then discarded. Each lasts about the length of two packs of traditional cigarettes and they require no set up, charging, changing of cartridges, or maintenance.

They are perfect for beginners because they are simple, easy to use, and do not require one to spend a large chunk of money right from the start.

It gives you the experience of e-smoking without commitment.

Disposables are also perfect for people who have little time for charging batteries, as well as those who are traveling. They need nothing more than being opened from their packaging to be used!

The aspects of disposable e-cigarettes that can be considered less than desirable are that there are typically less options with them in terms of flavor, style, and nicotine level. They are also typically more expensive than reusable e-cigarettes, and they do create more waste than their counterparts.

While only you will know your personal preferences and tastes, e-cigarette kits and disposables offer amazing benefits both. Choosing one style over the other may work for you, but in the end, most e-smokers tend to use both because of their individual positive aspects. Weigh your options, experiment, and if all else still seems confusing, don’t hesitate to contact the company you are interested in to ask for guidance!

 

 

Traveling with E-Cigarettes – Having the Supplies You Need

Most people travel at some point or another, and throughout the world it is a major economic force. In the United States alone as a sector it grosses in upwards of $2 trillion annually! Vacations and tourism are on the agendas of millions, and there is no denying how rejuvenating a trip away can be. However traveling for business is often essential for millions of people, and accounts for more than $500 billion spent on travel in the US alone.

Traveling with e-cigarettes is much easier than smoking cigarettes!

So with all these people moving around constantly, heading from one place to another, if you are a smoker you know the difficulty that occurs when you are in need of some nicotine. Cigarettes are subject to restrictions everywhere, and smokers can find themselves more frustrated than ever when they leave town.

In the past, smoking in public, on airplanes, in trains, and in all varieties of public transit was entirely commonplace, but this is far from today’s reality. Second hand smoke is so frowned upon, it is not tolerated in many public places, especially those where many people will be congregating. So with smoking being such a difficult thing to do, it’s no wonder many smokers are embracing e-cigarettes.

Let’s face it: vaping is way more practical when you are traveling!

E-cigarettes travel much more easily than traditional cigarettes, but one thing to keep in mind is that while you can purchase your “essentials” like your toothbrush or shampoo abroad, you probably won’t be able to grab your e-cigs wherever you go. So when packing there are a few things you will need to take care of ahead of time to make sure you are all set while you’re away.

E-Cigarette Batteries: You should have a minimum of 2 batteries, though more can be helpful. Losing one is always a possibility, and it’s great to have an extra when one is charging.

E-Cigarette Chargers: At least one mode of charging is necessary, but having a few options is good; just like when you’re at home. In your hotel room, the wall charger can be very practical, however if you are very much on the go, the PCC (Personal Charging Case) may be the right thing to have. It charges batteries wherever you are without a separate power source. A USB charger is great if you are on business, and will be connected to your computer.

E-Cigarette Cartridges: You probably won’t be finding refills that fit your product wherever you travel, so make sure you pack enough. You know your particular usage, so make sure you have more carts than you will need. You don’t know if you will get set back or encounter delays, so why go without nicotine unnecessarily?

E-cigarettes can be used nearly anywhere, and when you travel they won’t put you in uncomfortable situations as that obnoxious smoking tourist! They don’t need to be lit with fire, and will give off no smoke, so you never have to be self conscious about offending others.

They allow you to enjoy the nicotine you crave, and enjoy your travels at the same time.

Electronic Cigarettes and Air Travel

In your day-to-day life, electronic cigarettes are simply easier to use, more accessible, and make it easier to be around others, especially nonsmokers. So when you travel by air, and totally get out of your comfort zone and all that is totally familiar, they take one more burden off your shoulders.

Just because you are traveling on a plane doesn’t mean you have to revert back to traditional cigarettes!

Vapor gives you the flexibility you need and love in your daily life, and this is even more important when traveling. Here are a few things to know when getting to your destination as smoothly as possible, and to make sure you will have no troubles vaping along the way.

Air travel may be the fastest way to cross great distances, but it also comes with the most restrictions. Security is high, and for good reason of course.

While TSA checkpoints may aggravate many to high degrees, they are there to ensure personal and national security, and they are inevitable parts of boarding airplanes.

In short, they are unavoidable!

While you may have difficulty bringing along many things, especially liquids in your carry-on, the Transportation Security Administration has no restrictions against electronic cigarettes and the accompanying supplies being carried in luggage, either checked or in your carry-on.

If you are not sure where you should pack your e-cigarettes; wondering whether your carry-on or checked baggage will be better, it’s a safer go to keep them in your carry-on. If your checked baggage is subject to a search, and your electronic cigarettes are discarded, you will have no say in the matter. If they are with you, and you are questioned, you will be able to provide a proper explanation. While e-cigarettes are quite common, there are still many people who are not aware of them!

As you are free to bring your electronic cigarettes with you, remember that there are restrictions when and where you can vape. Vaping is not allowed on airplanes, because even though they produce no combustion, and no smoke, they do not have federal approval.

Many airports do allow vaping in the terminal, but not all.

Some airport rules consider them to be no different than traditional cigarettes, and require you to vape in the “smoking” section, which defeats the purpose of using electronic cigarettes altogether. Hopefully in the future this will be re-examined and changed!

Vaping while traveling is much more people-friendly, and travel-friendly than smoking their tobacco counterparts, and if you just take notice of the things you can and can’t do, it can go even smoother.
