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-cigs in 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!

Check our excellent selection of accessories to make it all work for you! Smoking in your car just got very interesting!

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!

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!

E-Liquid: VG, PG and What you Need to Know!

imagesElectronic cigarettes are different across the board. All brands do things a little differently from one another, putting their personal stamp on the products. One area of major discussion among users is e-liquid. Specifically what is in their e-liquid, regardless of nicotine strength.

The majority of brands use one of two substances as a base for their e-juice, and there is enormous debate from e-smokers as to which comes out on top.

Vegetable Glycerin, (VG) and Propylene Glycol, (VG) are the main bases, and people are quite vocal about what they prefer.

Vegetable Glycerin is an all-natural product derived from plant oils. It has been used as a sweetener, as well as in other foods as an additive. One aspect users enjoy about its use in e-cigarettes is the fantastically large quantities of vapor it produces.

There has been much controversy surrounding the use of Propylene Glycol. It has been used in trace amounts in certain foods and cosmetic products, however it is known to be an irritant, as it is a solvent. Many people have allergies and sensitivities to it, so even though it creates a great throat hit, it’s something that is better avoided.

EverSmoke exclusively uses Vegetable Glycerin as a base for our USA-made nicotine liquid.

Our cartridges are available in 10 flavors, and our customers have always raved about our flavors. We know a huge contributing factor is having great liquid, and vegetable glycerin is our signature.

Here is a list of the positive effects of VG in e-liquid, and why it’s the better choice for vaping.

-Creates thick, voluminous vapor.

-Has a very smooth hit.

-It is vegetable-based, making it nontoxic, not chemical-derived.

-Less likely to cause negative effects in users.

-Carries flavors excellently.

-Safe for consumption, as it is commonly found in cosmetics and is used as a sweetener.

While the choice remains yours – in regards to going with VG or PG –based nicotine juice, for our products we’re sticking with VG!

 

 

Electronic cigarettes and Research: Where We Stand

imagesOne of the biggest topics when it comes to electronic cigarette debates is research. The FDA says enough research has not been done, and consumers are always curious about advancements.

Because we are still in the early stages of electronic cigarettes, there is nothing that can negate the fact that large amounts of extensive research have yet to be done.

As it progresses, we are sure further testing will get more and more in depth, both in respect to the effects of e-cigarettes medically and environmentally. Here is a look at what currently know in regards to medical research.

Medical Research

Thus far, the majority of the research on electronic cigarettes has been focusing on their effects on health, especially in regards to their risks and benefits. These have been done by a number of institutions, including government, universities, and those sponsored by the industry itself.

Toxicology and Carcinogens

Another major area of focus when it comes to e-cigarettes is the subject of carcinogens. Enormous amounts of research have been done on cigarettes and their carcinogenic properties, and people want to know where e-cigarettes lie in the matter. Studies have been done to test the chemical composition of electronic cigarettes, and one of these, done by the Roswell Parker Cancer Institute surveyed the chemical output of 12 electronic cigarette brands. They screened for toxins and potentially cancer-causing substances, including volatile organic compounds, nitrosamines, carbonyls, and heavy metals. All 12 brands were compared to the production of a medical nicotine inhaler, and the results of toxic findings ranged from 9 to 450 times less than those from cigarette smoke, and with some toxic levels that were comparable to the trace amounts that were produced by the inhaler.

Lungs and Heart

The effects of e-cigarettes on the heart and lungs have had a decent amount of scientific research coverage, as traditional tobacco cigarettes do the most damage to the these areas. In a study done in Greece, by Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos, the heart’s reaction to electronic cigarette use was measured and compared to how it reacted after cigarette use. Interestingly, when using vapor, users experienced just a slight increase in blood pressure, and very little increase in heart rate. By comparison, however, after smoking a tobacco cigarette, the smoker’s heart rate and blood pressure would soar. The conclusion of this study did not promote the use of electronic cigarettes, however the physician, Dr. Farsalinos did validate them as suitable alternatives to tobacco.

Other studies looking at the effect of vapor smoking on the heart and lungs have been performed, however most lack research and data.

Electronic cigarettes have gotten big, so big in fact that people want more thorough research, and it will most certainly be needed to aid in legislative efforts. Research is essentially a great thing, as the more we know, the better products we can develop.

 

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.

Check out our latest knowledge center article – Electronic Cigarettes and Traveling – for a more exhaustive list of things to consider when you take your next trip.

Why Hollywood Loves Vapor Cigs

Oh, Hollywood… the epicenter for all trends, the hotbed that designates all that is cool, the place to see and be seen! So when the Hollywood set totally embraces a movement, and after several years, only more stars have gotten into it, you know it’s big.

Such is the case with e-cigarettes. Many of us first heard of them when stars like Katherine Heigl started flaunting hers around town and on evening show broadcasts. She even got Dave Letterman to give it a try! Since that time the number of celebs who’ve been switching to vapor has increased dramatically, and all the time we hear about new stars who get with the program. Catherine Zeta-Jones (whose husband, Michael Douglas has famously battled cancer as a result of smoking), Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Pattinson, Harrison Ford, Jeremy Piven, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Natasha Lyonne, Charlie Sheen, Kate Moss, Britney Spears, and Trace Cyrus are just a few of the many who have been spotted using their e-cigs in the public eye!

Alternative cigs are not just a fashion statement for stars, however. While they are definitely fashionable, and they look great in the hands of anyone who uses them, they are the better option for getting your nicotine. Working in showbiz, there are long periods of waiting, and when you’re constantly waiting and kind of stressed, you need to fill those boring spaces with something, and cigarettes have always been there to do just that. Yet cigarettes aren’t socially acceptable anymore, and tobacco smoke and tar kill, and they can really mar a youthful complexion. So, while working in this industry has its awesome perks, there are many attributes on the downside, and smoking doesn’t cut it anymore. Especially when the option of the exact same experience is available, even more conveniently with vapor cigs. It’s the best way to smoke comfortably because there is no smoke, no tar, no chemicals, no nasty filters, and nothing that will mess with the health or image.

One big difference for stars is that cigarettes make you look bad, and e-cigs make you look good. It’s a business all about looking good, so you see what they’re choosing! Are you tired of the smoke and the stigma? Try a starter kit, or some electronic cigarette disposables to see what e-cigs are all about!
