There are many articles out there telling you all about how dangerous smoking tobacco can be thanks to the 7000 plus chemicals found in the smoke that is produced, however there are also numerous benefits to swapping to vaping e-cigarettes instead. Vape pens have been designed as an alternative to smoking regular cigarettes and there are a large number of reasons to make the switch. Here are some of the top advantages to vaping:

Ash-Free

ash free vapingVaping does not involve combustion as it works by heating up a solution and turning it into a vapour. This means that there is no ash produced so you can consign the smelly overflowing ash-tray to the trash. As there is less mess to clean up when vaping, you will also never again have to sweep up the layer of ash from your floor, meaning that your home is cleaner and tidier. 

Fewer Chemicals

Tobacco smoke is packed with hundreds of dangerous toxins including 70 known carcinogens. There are 600 chemicals in tobacco cigarettes (including tar, ammonia and carbon monoxide), and while e-cigs do contain nicotine as well as  diethylene glycol which may be toxic, they have far fewer levels of harmful chemicals than a regular cigarette.

Lower Cost

lower cost vapingOne cartridge gives you the same amount of nicotine as you would find in a pack of 20 standard cigarettes. As you can purchase five packs of cartridges for the same cost as two regular cigarette packs it is easy to see how much money you can save by making the switch.

A World Of Choice

There is a huge amount of choice and variety when it comes to choosing e-cigs, with new brands appearing all the time. When you switch to vaping, you are opening up a world of opportunities.

Great Flavours

gourmet e juicesWhile there are very limited flavours of regular tobacco, e-cigarettes are very easy to flavour meaning that you can enjoy your nicotine in combination with a host of delicious and unusual flavourings. Whether you would prefer fruity tastes, cocktail flavours or dessert-like treats, there are options to suit every preference and if you want something a bit more traditional, there are even some classic tobacco or menthol flavours.

A Choice Of Strengths

While it is impossible to change the strength of nicotine in your regular tobacco cigarette without switching brands, e-cigarettes come in variable nicotine contents so you can choose the strength that best suits you. If you like, you can start out with an 18 mg cartridge and then work downwards, ending up at 0 mg if you would prefer to manage without nicotine at all.

The Same Sensation As Smoking

E-cigarettes have been designed with the experience of smoking in mind, so vapers can replicate the sensation of smoking thanks to the realistic throat hit, cloud of vapour that is very similar to smoke and even, sometimes, a glowing tip whenever you inhale. Some vape pens even feature cigarette-like butts, while the sensation of holding something in your hand and regularly inhaling and exhaling will make you feel like you are smoking your usual cigarette.

Evade The Smoking Ban

Using vape pens is not smoking, it is vaping and as they only heat the e-liquid rather than combusting tobacco, they usually are not covered by the smoking ban so you can use them in many more places where regular smoking would be forbidden.

Simple To Use

Simple To Use e cigAlthough e-cigs use modern technology they are still easy to use. The majority are 2 piece models, requiring the user to simply screw the cartridge end to the battery and begin puffing immediately. Generally, the batteries are automatically activated, creating the vapour which is emitted from the mouthpiece during inhalation.

No Risk Of Fire

When you smoke a cigarette and fall asleep, you are flirting with disaster. Not only are you putting your property at risk of damage, but you could even be badly injured or worse. When you fall asleep holding a vape pen, there is no risk at all since there is no fire involved.

No Smell

no smell vapingRegular smoking causes an unpleasant smell which can be very off-putting. Even smokers often dislike the smell of smoke on their clothes and furniture. Only a faint smell is produced by an e-cigarette and that is only from the flavouring. Switching to vaping means that you and your home no longer smell like an ashtray. Also, your skin will no longer have an unpleasant yellowish tinge and your hair and skin will start to look younger and healthier.

No Teeth Staining

Smoking regular cigarettes means that your teeth become stained by the tar and other chemicals. As these are removed in e-cigarettes, you can enjoy having stain-free teeth as well as much fresher breath.

Say Goodbye To Second Hand Smoke

no second hand smokeWhen it comes to smoke, e-cigarettes are very efficient, pumping out nothing from the tip. Also, as they are safer than regular cigarettes, they are risk-free for those around you making the dangers of second hand smoke to your family and friends a thing of the past.

No More Coughing

Tobacco smoke causes irritation to the throat due to the high toxin content, and this can result in a smoker’s cough. As e-cigs do not have these toxins, you can say goodbye to your irritating cough.

Better Health

better health when vapingTobacco smoke contains no less than 70 known carcinogens whereas e-cigarettes only contain propylene glycol (a substance found in smoke machines), nicotine, and the same food flavourings that you could find in your local grocery store. While there are trace amounts of nitrosamines, which are carcinogens produced during the nicotine extraction procedure from tobacco, these are also found in similar quantities in FDA approved nicotine patches.

Since you are exposed to 1400 times more carcinogens when smoking regular cigarettes, you are hugely cutting your chances of developing cancer when you switch to vaping. As well as cutting your risk of cancer, you will also find that within 24 hours of quitting tobacco you lower your risk of having a heart attack and will feel less anxious. Within just a few more months, your lung function, sense of taste and circulation will all go back to normal too.

Eco-Friendly

E-cigarettes are better for the environment as they do not emit air-polluting organic compounds in the same way as regular tobacco.  Also, as they produce no ash or cigarette butts, they do not cause all of the problems that regular cigarettes do when butts are washed off the streets into drains where they can then end up in lakes, rivers and streams.

When this happens, the cellulose acetate filters leach 4000 chemicals into the water, harming and killing wildlife, and they can never be biodegraded. In contrast, most modern devices can now be recycled making them a much more environmentally sound option.

Safety

Public Health England and The Royal College Of Physicians have both issued a report to prove that vaping is definitely considered to be 95% safer than smoking tobacco. Although there were some early reported issues about safety, these were from first generation e-cigs that are no longer in use or as a result of using an incorrect charger meaning that, when used correctly, modern vape pens are safe to use.

Be Drug-Free

drug freeAlthough there are some pharmaceutical methods that have been shown to help smokers to quit the habit, these involve taking drugs regularly. Many of these began as anti-anxiety or antidepressant medications and may have side effects such as nausea or negative interactions with alcohol. Vaping causes none of these problems and the only drug you will be taking will be nicotine, which you can reduce in strength over time.

No More Social Stigma

Smoking seems to come with a social stigma attached these days, especially among professionals. If you switch to vaping, you will no longer exhibit any of the familiar signs of smoking and people will also be interested in your experience with vaping. Vaping can help to start conversations whereas smoking is sure to kill them off.

Dual-Use

While you are probably vaping with the eventual goal of giving up smoking tobacco cigarettes completely, you may need to wean yourself away from cigarettes gradually. Dual use gives you time to set yourself up with the right equipment and try out different flavours of e-liquid before making the switch entirely to e-cigarettes.

Other stop-smoking methods like the nicotine patch do not give you this option since they deliver a set amount of nicotine and this can be raised to dangerous levels if you smoke tobacco at the same time as wearing a patch. There is no risk of this with vaping as a hit from an vape pen produces the same amount of nicotine as you would get from an e-cigarette.

Conclusion

reasons to switch to vapingAs you can see from the many reasons outlined above, the advantages of switching to vaping from tobacco cigarettes are clear. From improving your health to saving money, vaping has numerous benefits for the ex-smoker. Swapping to vape pens will prevent you and your home from smelling like an ashtray and you will no longer be subject to the social stigma surrounding the habit. As e-cigarettes are also safer for humans and for the environment too, it makes sense to give them a try if you are ready to quit smoking.

pg allergies

As you can imagine, in the same way that everyone reacts in different ways to things they inhale or ingest, everybody will react differently to the ingredients contained in e-liquids and the vapour that they produce. This means that, while most people can enjoy vaping regularly without experiencing any health problems, a few people find that they experience unwanted irritating or unpleasant symptoms once they have made the switch to e-cigs from regular tobacco cigarettes. In the majority of these cases, the main side effect is only a minor irritation in the throat, however some people do experience a much worse reaction. Here, we look at some of the side effects you may have if you have an allergy to your e-liquid and what you can do about it.

E-Liquid Ingredients

While we are aware that e-cigarettes do not contain the harmful ingredients like carcinogens and tar that are found in regular cigarettes and also contain no actual tobacco, some people are unsure of the ingredients contained in e-liquids. E-liquids are a liquid solution of nicotine made up of 4 primary ingredients: water, flavouring, nicotine and a base of vegetable glycerine or propylene glycol (or a mix of the two).

  • PG or propylene glycol is a carrier or base for flavours and nicotine. This is a common food additive which is found in lots of things we consume regularly as well as in medicines.
  • VG or vegetable glycerin is also a carrier or base for flavours and nicotine. This is a plant based substance which is often made from palm oil or coconut and is frequently found in foodstuffs as an additive.
  • Water
  • Flavouring – food flavourings are added to e-liquids to create a particular taste.
  • Nicotine – most e-liquid brands offer a variable content of nicotine in their products, with some containing 0 mg and others containing as much as 24 mg.

Possible Vaping Side Effects

vaping side effects

Although the majority of people experience no side effects when vaping e-cigarettes, apart from those issues linked with the ongoing use of nicotine, there are some other people who do experience symptoms related to their vaping, although these are usually temporary in nature. Some of the most common include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Dry skin
  • Rash or burning feeling on the face
  • Itchiness
  • Dry or puffy eyes
  • Sensitivity to caffeine
  • Minor issues with nosebleeds

The effect of having a dry mouth is one of the most common symptoms reported due to the nature of e-liquid itself. One of the primary ingredients in the majority of e-liquids is PG or propylene glycol. This is a substance which is also commonly used in a range of personal care and pharmaceutical products, and as it is hygroscopic, it attracts and holds water molecules that are in the surrounding environment i.e. the mouth. It is possible to rectify this side effect by simply drinking sips of water more frequently. If you experience dry skin when vaping, you can usually address the problem by applying a hypo-allergenic moisturiser until the body adjusts.

The drying effect of e-liquids may also be the cause of nosebleeds in a small number of vapers, and while this is a problem which usually resolves itself over time, it may help to avoid exhaling the vapour through the nose in the first few weeks of vaping. Some people experience side effects because they are vaping too much, and their problems disappear if they cut down their e-cigarette usage.

In other cases, side effects are not caused by the e-cigarette itself, but by the way the body now reacts to some other substance. For example, some people begin to develop a sensitivity to caffeine which may result in hot flashes or increased anxiety. This can be rectified by reducing caffeine intake by drinking weaker coffee or fewer cups over the course of a day.

Some people experience reactions due to an allergy to some of the e-liquid ingredients such as the VG, PG, nicotine or flavourings. It is often possible to find relief by adjusting the levels of the components in the e-liquid. Most people who have experienced side effects from vaping find that if they continue to vape, over time the issues disappear without the need to take action. A few others discover that their problems get worse, however it is very rare to have to stop vaping because of the side effects experienced.

PG Allergy – Can I Avoid It?

If you have had an adverse or allergic reaction while vaping, it makes sense to try switching e-liquids first. This will help you to discover whether it is propylene glycol that you are sensitive to, or whether it is a different ingredient in the e-juice. You could either swap to an e-liquid with a lower ratio of PG or try eliminating PG altogether. The best way to determine whether propylene glycol is causing your symptoms is to try an e-liquid that is made up of 100% vegetable glycerin, however this can prove tricky as there are fewer e-liquids with a VG base than those with a PG base. Also, some 100% VG e-liquids still have a very small amount of PG which could cause symptoms to occur. Therefore, the best option if you are experiencing an allergic reaction is to always purchase your e-liquids from a well known and reliable vendor.

If you have tried switching e-liquids but still experience a bad reaction, it is possible that you are vaping an e-juice that has too high a nicotine content, and therefore be overdosing. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you should consult a doctor as overdosing on nicotine can be very serious.

  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Fast heartbeat
  • Dizziness
  • Sweating

Sometimes, the symptoms you are experiencing may be from a particular flavouring. If you know that you have an allergy to a particular type of food, avoid e-liquids that contain that substance.

New Study On Asthma And Vaping http://e-cigreviews.org.uk/new-study-on-asthma-and-vaping/ http://e-cigreviews.org.uk/new-study-on-asthma-and-vaping/#respond Wed, 15 Mar 2017 17:56:37 +0000 http://e-cigreviews.org.uk/?p=2809 While governments all over the world are trying to bring in more and more regulations to control the use of e-cigarettes, it is important to bear in mind how many benefits they could provide, especially for some at-risk groups of smokers such as asthma sufferers.

asthma and vapingWhile governments all over the world are trying to bring in more and more regulations to control the use of e-cigarettes, it is important to bear in mind how many benefits they could provide, especially for some at-risk groups of smokers such as asthma sufferers. Smokers who suffer from asthma usually find that their habit exacerbates their condition, causing their lung function to decline more rapidly and the corticosteroid treatments to be less effective. When vaping is used as a substitute for smoking, it has long been believed to have the potential to help reduce the problems experienced by asthma sufferers and now a study has revealed that this is certainly the case.

Benefits of Switching to Vaping for Asthmatic Smokers

A study recently published in Discovery Medicine has proved positive links between switching to e-cigarettes and experiencing a reduction in asthma symptoms among smokers. Sufferers of asthma who smoke have exacerbated symptoms and poorer health as a result of their condition. Those who have smoked for over 20 pack years have even more serious symptoms and poorer control of the condition. The majority of studies have pointed to a faster decline in lung function as well as a more obstructed air flow, with asthmatic patients who are also smokers experiencing a reduced response to treatments compared to patients who are non-smokers.

While quitting the habit may reverse the impact of smoking tobacco on lung function and asthma symptoms, many smokers refuse to give up when given only the choice between smoking or giving up nicotine completely.
smoking and asthmaThe recent research has investigated whether e-cigarettes could help asthmatic smokers to stop smoking as well as whether they could actually reverse the harm caused by smoking tobacco. 18 smokers who suffered from mild or moderate asthma and who had switched to smoking e-cigarettes were involved in the study which investigated any change in their respiratory function and overall health, with baseline measurements being taken at the outset and checked against the figures obtained after six, twelve and twenty four months.

This long term monitoring revealed consistent improvements in lung function and respiratory symptoms, not only in those who had completely switched over to e-cigarettes but also in dual users who vaped but also continued smoking too.

This evidence has shown that using electronic cigarettes may improve the outcomes for smokers with asthma over the long term and their use may even be helpful in reversing damage that has been caused by smoking tobacco in these patients. Stopping smoking is a essential step in the effective treatment of asthma patients, however quitting is never easy and in such cases, e-cigarettes are a less harmful option. They represent a valid solution since the only side effects reported from their use during the study were a dry mouth and throat irritation.

Can Vaping Reverse Lung Damage from Smoking?

asmathic smokersSmokers who also have asthma may find that they can improve the symptoms that they experience by making the change to e-cigarettes. There is increasing amounts of evidence to suggest that vaping is not only safer than smoking tobacco but it can even help to reverse the damage to the lungs caused by the habit.

During the study, all of the participants found that their condition had improved and even those who were still occasionally using tobacco were still experiencing the benefits. The conclusion was that vaping had helped the participants to reduce their tobacco consumption and this helped in turn to reduce their asthma symptoms.

Patients who suffer from COPD may also benefit from switching to e-cigarettes as a global internet survey of over 19,000 consumers proved that more than three quarters of ex-smokers who now suffered from COPD experienced an alleviation in their symptoms following their switch to vaping, with improvements in their gustatory and olfactory senses as well as their breathing, general physical status and endurance. Over a third of the participants even reported that they could cut back or stop taking their prescribed medicines completely, with only 0.8% experiencing a worsening of their symptoms.

Despite all of this evidence, there is still a popular belief that vaping can damage the lungs, with many experts still failing to be convinced that e-cigarettes can reduce the harm caused by smoking tobacco. Many experts in the field continue to reiterate their belief that vaping is no improvement over smoking standard cigarettes even though the study actually proved that the aerosol in e-cigarettes has a considerably lower level of cytotoxicity than tobacco smoke.

Sensationalist media reports have led to public opinion being negatively swayed despite the weight of evidence demonstrating the benefits of vaping. Some studies have even suggested that the vapour produced by e-cigs may be no more harmful than the air that we all breathe in every day, however as there are some very strong contrasting views on the subject of the effect that e-cigarette vapour has on the lungs, more research is certainly required to definitively reveal the truth about the matter.

Conclusion

At the same time as the media, politicians and regulators are all trying to make us believe that e-cigarettes are harmful, studies such as this are showing that there are benefits to be gained in switching from tobacco smoking to vaping. When more studies are carried out in the future, there will be even more evidence to back this up, however even from the current findings, it is easy to conclude that smokers who suffer from asthma will see some significant improvements in their condition if they switch to vaping.

gourmet liquid flavoursE-Liquids are what make vaping enjoyable, and vapers collect atomisers and devices purely with the intent of enjoying their e-liquid even more. Therefore, it is no wonder that it has become ever-more important to craft the perfect e-liquid. In the earliest days of vaping, there were far fewer flavours and while they were enjoyable, they were pretty basic. However today there are countless more options, with an impressive selection that embraces everything from standard tobacco or fruit flavours right up to dessert or cocktail flavoured varieties. There are several companies in the industry today that sell “gourmet” ranges of e-liquids which offer carefully balanced, exotic and complex flavours with impressive descriptions. Some e-juices are also phenomenally expensive, sometimes costing up to $37.50 per 30ml. So, how good can a gourmet e-juice really be?

Gourmet E-Liquid – what is it and how much does it cost?

For any new vaper, the best advice is to try as many different kinds of e-juice as possible. While there are many budget e-liquids produced by Chinese companies (the numbers running into tens or hundreds of flavours with a variety of VG to PG ratios and varying strengths of nicotine), none of these lower priced options can offer “Gourmet” flavours. A “Gourmet” flavour is one which is a sophisticated blend that offers something out of the ordinary. While most people can mix standard flavourings with VG and PG, a gourmet e-juice is something above and beyond. To make these select flavours, companies opt for pharmaceutical grade ingredients, employ mixologists and mix the e-liquids just before shipping for maximum freshness. This makes the process a lot more expensive, hence the higher price tag. However, as most vapers expect gourmet flavours to cost more, many companies inflate the price even further and when this happens, the product becomes grossly overpriced, especially as it is not too different from an ordinary $5 for 10 ml bottle.

Regular And Gourmet E-Liquid Comparison

gourmet e juicesWhen we refer to most e-liquid brands as “ordinary”, this does not necessarily mean that they are not of excellent quality. Instead, it is a statement about the range of products available from the vendor – flavors such as blueberry, vanilla cupcake or cookies and cream may be interesting, but they are most definitely no-frills products. Some Gourmet e-liquid manufacturers offer a “menu” of flavors which comprise choices such as champagne and strawberries and apple bourbon tobacco. Blending combinations of unusual flavors, these “menus” are a lot more exotic than you would expect from an “ordinary” vendor. The descriptions themselves are also very different, with a much more fanciful tone and more colorful language. A further thing which separates an ordinary e-juice from a gourmet e-liquid is the process of creating the flavor itself. The process of mixing a gourmet flavor is more refined as they are attempting to offer the buyer a vaping experience that is akin to a culinary masterpiece. Part of this dedication to high quality is the care taken in crafting these flavors, with the manufacturers opting for USP grade ingredients as well as natural flavorings and a guarantee to the buyer that no artificial colorings or diacetyl is used in their creation.

Gourmet E-Liquid Flavours

There are countless types of gourmet e-liquid flavours, but some of the most exciting include:

  • Banana Nut Bread
  • Bikini Martini
  • Banana Creme
  • Coconut Rum
  • Cinnamon Creambaca
  • Honeydew Tea

Leading Global Health Experts Commission E-Cigarettes Public DefenseIf you are a smoker but would like to give up, you may be considering giving vaping a try. Vaping is one of the most effective ways of kicking the habit and is a healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes. Although you may be keen to switch to e-cigs, it can be difficult to know where to start as there are so many different vaping options available. In this article, we look at how to get started as well as giving you some useful tips to improve your vaping experience.

What are the Advantages of Vaping?

Vaping brings many benefits over smoking traditional cigarettes. Some of the greatest advantages include:

  • No unpleasant lingering smoky smells
  • No ash to make a mess
  • No carbon monoxide released
  • No tar content
  • No unpleasant smelling breath
  • A choice of nicotine levels to suit the user’s preference
  • The option to opt for nicotine free e-liquids
  • Lower cost over the long-term
  • A huge selection of different flavours from traditional tobacco to fruit or exotic flavours

How Do I Know If Vaping Is A Good Choice For Me?

You may already have tried quitting smoking once or more in the past and failed. Whether you tried going cold turkey, using patches, chewing nicotine replacement gum or trying some other kind of nicotine replacement therapy, these methods don’t work for everybody. The good news is that vaping is around 95% less dangerous for the health than traditional smoking and therefore is a great alternative for those who are trying to give up the habit.

 What Equipment Do I Need To Get Started?

 v2 cigs ex series kitAlthough there is a wealth of  paraphernalia that you may want to consider buying eventually if you enjoy vaping, at first you should just invest in a basic starter kit. These include all of the essentials that you need to get started with vaping, and some even include a free e-liquid, although you may need to purchase this separately. Some of the more complex equipment such as box mods are most suited to experienced vapers as they can be difficult and potentially dangerous for novices to handle, therefore you should wait until you have been vaping for a while before buying one of these devices.

 How Does Vaping Work?

 To get started with vaping, you connect the tank to a battery and fill up with the e-liquid of your choice. Once this is done, you simple press the fire button to begin heating the e-juice and this produces the vapour that you inhale. E-liquid is made up of three or four different components depending on which variety you select. These include:

  • PG (Propylene Glycol) this is a substance which is frequently found used for other purposes including in asthma inhalers, toothpastes, moisturisers and bags of pre-prepared salad
  • VG (Vegetable Glycerin) this is another substance which is often found in a range of food stuffs
  • Flavourings – most e-liquids contain a mix of artificial and natural flavourings which can be as exotic as cocktail flavours or as basic as menthol or tobacco
  • Nicotine – this helps to satisfy any cravings for traditional cigarettes. You can choose from a range of nicotine strengths which allows you to slowly wean yourself off the habit. There are also nicotine free options available

It is important to only buy e-juices from reputable suppliers so that you can be certain that the ingredients are safe to use and of pharmaceutical standards.

There are 3 different kinds of e-liquid:black note e-juice

  • High VG liquids – these smooth liquids produce a larger amount of vapour but less flavour
  • High PG liquids – these carry plenty of flavour and give a good throat hit but with a reduced amount of vapour
  • 50/50 liquids – these contain a roughly equal amount of VG and PG for the best of both worlds

It is only be experimentation that you will discover which you prefer.

Do I Need To Maintain My Vaping Equipment?

Once you have bought a starter kit, you will only have to replace two parts of your equipment. These are the coils and the e-juice. When you refill the e-liquid you simply unscrew the lid of your tank (or clearomiser), tilt it slightly and pour the e-liquid into the tank. When you do this, it is vital to steer clear of the middle chimney’s hole as otherwise you will end up inhaling e-liquid which is very unpleasant.

You then screw the lid back on and you are ready to begin vaping. Replacing the coil is also easy, and is necessary once the vapour begins to reduce and the flavour starts to become more burnt or less noticeable. To do this, you unscrew the tank’s base, unscrew the coil and throw it away and screw the new one in place.

It is important that you allow the e-juice to soak thoroughly into the new coil’s wick before you begin vaping again. Remember that you will also need to recharge your battery frequently. This can take around 3 hours, however you should never leave your battery charging for long periods or overnight as this can result in a shorter battery life.

vaping drip tipsMany vapers pay very little attention to which drip tip they are using, and this is especially true for beginners to the vaping lifestyle, who are often happy to use whichever drip tip is packaged with their atomiser as long as it doesn’t burn their lips. However once you become more experienced with vaping, you will probably be ready to start experimenting and trying out different things that will alter your vaping experience for the better, and one of the things that you might be interested in trying is a range of different drip tips. There are several different styles available for purchase today, and each will have an impact upon your experience.

How Can A Drip Tip Enhance My Vaping Experience?

It may surprise you to learn that different styles of drip tip can impact upon different aspects of your vaping experience. For example, it can have an effect upon the temperature of the vapour produced, the intensity of the e-juice flavour, the way the heat is distributed, the airflow, and the density of the vapour. Sometimes, changing your drip tip for a different style can even be a fashion statement. Here are some of the ways in which your choice of drip tip can change your vaping experience:

  • A wider drip tip will produce increased amounts of vapour
  • A narrow drip tip will give you a stronger flavour
  • A long drip tip will make your vapour cooler
  • A short drip tip will make the vapour warmer

Which Styles Of Drip Tip Are Available To Choose From?

So that you can determine which kind of drip tip would best suit your preferred vaping style, we will look here at the various styles available to buy and the impact that each can have upon your experience.

Wider Drip Tips

drip tipsIf you are a cloud-chaser, you will want to consider trying a wider drip tip as these result in an increased airflow which produces considerably more vapour. One thing to bear in mind, however, when opting for a wide drip tip is that the amount of flavour from your e-liquid that you will experience will be greatly reduced.

Narrower Drip Tips

A narrow drip tip will limit the amount of airflow, and therefore if you are looking for large vapour clouds, this is not the best choice for you. On the other hand, if you are seeking improved flavour and don’t mind smaller clouds, a narrow, short drip tip is the best option to suit your preferences. A narrow drip tip suits those who prefer to vape at a lower wattage of around 10-20 watts.

Longer Drip Tips

A longer drip tip will keep your mouth further from your atomiser and this may give you a reduced amount of flavour, however it does have the advantage of preventing your lips from being burned, especially if your drip tip is made of metal. A drip tip with extra length will also enable the vapour to be cooled down before it reaches your mouth, so if you prefer a cooler vaping experience, a long drip tip is best for you.

Shorter Drip Tip

In contrast to the long drip tip which cools the vapour down, a shorter drip tip results in a hotter vapour. Short drip tips are often found on atomisers that are designed to be used at high wattages because when the vapour travels a shorter distance it produces increased amounts of flavour. If you prefer vaping at high wattages but don’t want to run the risk of burning your lips due to a shorter drip tip, you could consider switching to a drip tip that is manufactured from glass, ceramic or Delrin, none of which heat up in the same way as a metal drip tip will.

Making A Fashion Statement

fashionable drip tipsWhile most of this article has centred around the functionality of your drip tip, one of the reasons that you may want to make some changes is to suit your sense of style. It is possible to find drip tips that match your device, either with a contrasting colour or with a matching shade. As many people use their vaping device as a fashion statement, this is just another way to tailor it to suit your preferences.

How Do I Choose The Right Drip Tip For Me?

If you are happy with your vaping experience as it stands without the need to change your drip tip, you need not worry about looking at the different alternatives, however if you are hoping to make improvements, this is certainly one of the areas where experimentation is well worth it. While most atomisers work perfectly well with the drip tip that they were packaged with, you may find that customising your drip tip can enhance your vaping, tailoring it more to suit your individual preferences.

v2 Cigs Review – The Brand

V2 Electronic Cigarette is one of the biggest names in the vaping industry. This premium brand has been around for a while and has developed an extensive product line, ranging from disposable e-cigs to high-end vaporisers.

Interestingly, this is one of the few brands that keeps improving and upgrading its products. It was V2 who introduced the ‘power cigarette’, a battery-free e-cig that you simply plug into a PC USB port or USB car adapter.

In short, these guys are very much at the cutting edge of vaping technology. So whether you are a first time vaper looking for a ‘cig-a-like’ or an advanced vaper in search of a high-end vaporiser, the V2 e-cig UK range won’t disappoint for choice or quality. Let’s start our V2 Cigs review by taking a closer look at the most popular starter kits from the V2 Cigs UK.

My Experience

I am sure, that you are keen to know V2 Cigs price. Well, at the moment V2 Cigs offers eight starter kits starting out at £22.99, with the mid-range Classic Standard Plus Starter Kit currently selling for £69.95 and the most expensive – the Ultimate Starter Kit – priced at £134.99.

My review will focus on the V2 Standard Plus Starter Kit, which is designed to meet all users’ basic requirements, but has the excellent ‘Plus’ of new Portable Charging Case.

Ultimate Kit

What’s in the Standard Kit?

At £69.95 it includes…

  • 2 x 5 flavour cartridges of your choice (equivalent to 8-10 packs of cigarettes)
  • 1x automatic battery
  • 1x manual battery
  • 1x USB smart charger
  • 1x wall adapter
  • 1x portable charging case
  • User Manualbuy now

Design

Open the white and blue top V2 Standard Starter Kit box and you will find two boxes of flavour cartridges and the batteries. There’s also a USB Smart Charger and mains adapter. One important perk of choosing a starter kit from V2 is that there is such a wide range to choose from and you have the option to customise what’s in the box according to your own individual needs.

V2 e-cig sizes vary depending on your choices and the type of kit you select, and the refill colours also depend on the chosen flavour. Users can also customise their kit with respect to the battery. They can choose from three battery sizes (short, medium and long), the 67mm 150mAh Shorty battery, the 79mm 250mAh Standard battery and the 100mm 380mAh Long battery. Better still, the batteries come in a choice of five colours: Traditional White, Sleek Black, Striking Blue, Pink or the more modern Stainless Steel.

Overall, I really like this kit. You can see and feel that it’s premium quality. As they say, you get what you pay for, right? And although – if you compare the actual content of the V2 Classic Standard Plus Kit to other e-cig kits within the same price bracket – it offers nothing extraordinary, V2 is still my favourite simply because of the quality of the components.

V2 Electronic Cigarette in the UK

Assembly

It’s simply a matter of removing the seal on one of the cartridges and screwing it onto a charged battery. Job done. Once assembled, the V2 electronic cigarette is around 100mm – 140mm long (depending, of course, on which battery you choose). Not surprisingly, a longer battery gives you more vaping between charges.

Vapour & Flavour

For this review, I chose the V2 Red and Mint Tea flavours at 12mg medium nicotine strength. Currently, they offer 12 flavours for you to choose from: Cherry, Chocolate, Coffee, Congress (tobacco flavour), Peppermint, Menthol, Mint Tea, Peppermint, Sahara (tobacco flavour), Vanilla, and V2 Red (tobacco flavour). Each flavour cartridge is available at 5 nicotine strengths: 24mg max. strength, 18mg full strength, 12mg medium strength, 6mg light strength, and zero strength.

There does appear to be a difference between vaping with the automatic battery and the manual battery. When using the manual battery (which requires you to click a button on the battery as you inhale) the vapour is thicker than when using the automatic and, I think, just the right amount. But it’s very much a matter of personal preference.

I liked the flavours too. V2 Red delivers a rich but smooth tobacco-tasting hit, but I am particularly fond of the mint tea flavour, which isn’t surprising, since I simply love tea.

Battery life

Given the choice of batteries on offer, battery life is certainly not a problem with this kit. If asked to choose between the two battery types, manual or automatic, I would favour the former. Not only does it produce more – and thicker – vapour, but it also seems to stay charged for longer.

I found that it takes about three hours to completely recharge the battery, which then delivers several hours of moderate vaping. Obviously, battery life depends on usage and all batteries will eventually wear out. However, when that does happen, it’s easy to buy a replacement battery – long, medium or short – direct from the website.

The inclusion of the Portable Charging Case within V2’s Standard Plus Starter Kit is really good news and makes life so much easier! No matter where you are, you can always charge your batteries.

In fact, it will charge one battery four times on the move before it has to be recharged from the mains itself.

Warranty

All V2 vaping products – except consumables such as e-liquid and disposable e-cigs – come with a comprehensive warranty. It’s also worth noting that only customers who buy v2 Cigs direct from them are covered by the warranty. Those who buy via a retailer will have to complete any claim with and through that retailer. The warranty will also be forfeited if the products have been modified, misused or repaired.

Conclusion

This V2 Cigs Review is almost finished, so here’s what I think:

There’s no denying that V2 Cigs is a force to reckon with in the e-cig industry. Their wide range of products and options for each product or kit certainly makes V2 a very attractive choice, especially for users who value quality and customisation, and also want to have more options when it comes to their vaping experience. Which is why I would definitely recommend V2 Cigs e-cigarette to every beginner or intermediate vaper out there. Advanced vapers and heavier smokers may also want to look at the V2 Pro Series range of advanced vaporizers.

And yes, there are cheaper alternatives available, but sometimes it’s better to spend a few extra pounds and get a premium product. Don’t you agree?

Jacvapour review – The Brand

JAC Vapour has been around for a couple of years already and has established itself as one of the biggest and most reputable E-Cigarette brands in the UK. Personally I know quite a few people who are using their products and all of them seems to be satisfied ;).

The brand was first launched in 2010 in the early days of vaping, with the aim of producing high quality, high performing, reliable vaping products. Even today, Jac Vapour is the only UK-based mainstream vaping company to design their own hardware themselves in-house, and they are proud that every single member of their team is entirely committed to the product.

The Brand comprises a wide range of devices, from affordable vape pens for beginners right up to the most advanced box mod for experienced users. Jac Vapour also produces its own line of e-liquids which are produced in the United Kingdom too. While some are traditional flavours like tobacco, others are a lot more exotic – for example, the unusually titled Kitten’s Breath!

Jac Vapour also offers warranties on all their products to ensure that their customers are completely satisfied with their purchases, and every product has been designed to be compliant with the new TPD vaping regulations.

The founder claims he started this e-cig business because he was a vaper himself and noticed varying qualities of product across the industry, so he went out to create a high quality one himself. Let’s start our JacVapour Review to see if he succeeded…

My experience with Jac Vapour

One of the best things I found with Jac Vapour, was that the selection they have on offer is really great – you can choose pretty much everything, including the cartridge flavour for your starter kit, the colour of your PCC and the size and colour of your battery. You can also add in any number of options for added costs, via drop-down lists on their website – just be careful you don’t go overboard or the price can add up. I normally like the cases that are designed to look and feel like a real cigarette packs – JAC Vapour’s doesn’t, and so I was surprised by how much I liked it – it is tough metal and heavier than other PCCs, but it feels really satisfying in your pocket and looks like something pretty special too.

Most Popular Starter Kits

JacVapour Series-B box mod

jacvapour series bThe JacVapour Series B Tilt is a compact, premium grade 40W box mod that is perfect for mouth to lung vapers. It comes with a 22mm matching black Geni Aero Mega tank and produces a very similar feeling to that of smoking regular cigarettes. This is one of the most compact regulated box mod devices available for purchase today and it requires removable 18650 batteries. It has a magnetic door for the battery compartment which permits simple access and there are also circuit protection features to guard against damage from overcharging and short circuiting.

JacVapour Series-E aero kit

SERIES-E Stainless Steel Aero Kit

This kit has a high capacity, high quality battery and is available in a brand new style that features refreshed packaging and a black firing button. The Series E Aero has better reliability and an improved performance, being made from solid and durable stainless steel. It has many advanced features and is designed to be stylish yet compact. This is the ideal kit for vapers who need power, reliability and quality in one portable package. There are many advanced safety features included with this kit for safer vaping.

V1P PCC kit

jacvapour v1p pro kitThis is one of the most popular JAC Vapour kits, and there are many reviews about this product. It comes complete with its own portable charging case, making it ideal for new vapers who are ready to switch from standard cigarettes. This is also a good choice for experienced users who need a more portable and compact e-cig for outdoor use. As a reliable and high performance kit, the V1P PCC is one of the best-selling kits from this manufacturer and it contains all the essentials to get started. The kit is customisable, with a choice of battery colour and size and a selection of either an automatic or manual device. Even the battery’s LED and cartridges can be changed to suit your preference.

Other notable kits

Basic Electronic Cigarette Kit

It comes complete with a 65mm V3i battery however you can also choose a spare or even swap the default provided battery for one in a different size. There is also a pack of mixed black cartomisers supplied as standard in either 18mg or 12mg nicotine strengths. These come in five different flavours – Cherry, Vanilla, Menthol, Tobacco and Tobacco Virgin. This is a simple kit, ideal for new vapers and is perfect for those who are light to moderate vapers.

Social Starter Kit

These come in five different flavours including cherry, vanilla, menthol, tobacco and tobacco virgin. This kit is simple to operate and contains the range’s most reliable battery.

Jac 510 manual 650 mAH Starter kit

650mah starter kitMade with the high quality you would expect from the JAC 510 range, this kit has an eGo thread and a 510 connection. The perfect alternative to the Vgo2 range, it is also a step up from the V3i battery range. This kit comes with 2 650mAh batteries which will last around 6 hours each. As the majority of vapers use around 800mAh daily, two 650mAh batteries provide a minimum of one day’s usage. The battery output is 4.2V and they measure 66mm, making the e-cigarette 137mm when assembled – a very portable size.

The kit is also equipped with your chosen tank – either a 510 Crystal, Mini Protank 3 or Evod 2. The tank unit will not need to be entirely replaced as the tanks are rebuildable meaning that only the coil and wick require replacing when they are spent for the most cost effective vaping solution. A free spare coil is even included in the price. The battery has a safety five button press lock and the entire device as been well constructed for durability and a long lifespan.

Jac Vapour Products and Kits

JAC Vapour have lots of different starter kits on offer, from a cheap £18.99 for their “Social Kit”, which really is for those who just wish to try out an E-Cig. This kit includes everything you need to start vaping. With this kit you will receive 1x rechargeable battery, 1x USB charger and 5 mixed cartridges. Pretty good deal, right? If you’re looking to start vaping though, I would go for one of the kits that come with a bit more – otherwise, you may feel limited with so simple starter kit.

The other kits come with much more, and the main starter kits really begin at £29.99 going up to £65.99 for a kit with everything you could want. Check out their website to compare them all. I almost went for the Basic Starter Kit for £26.99 until I saw that it didn’t come with a Portable Charging Case, or PCC, so I opted for the V1P PCC starter kit instead which cost me £29.99. It depends on the individual vaper, but I always go for kits with a PCC if available, since they are so much more convenient. This kit included the PCC, a USB charger, 1 battery (with an option to add a spare for £9.99), 5 carts (you can choose the flavours), and some other accessories like different coloured tips to customise the E-Cigarette yourself.

The product itself seems to be designed for individual customisation – as I said, you can choose pretty much everything, even including the colour of the bung (mouthpiece). If you are looking to have options at your disposal, I can’t think of a more appropriate choice than this. You can also use E-Liquid to refill your JAC Vapour cartridges, which adds another dimension for those who are interested in saving money. I am more than happy to refill them myself if it means more money in my wallet! Now it’s time to dive deeper in our JAC Vapour review…

Battery Life

So my starter kit only came with 1 battery, and I elected not to pay the extra £9.99 for a spare, just to see how I went with one. For everything I say, bear in mind that with 2 batteries, and the PCC you will normally have at least one charged battery at all times. I am more of a medium vaper, so the time it took to charge wasn’t that much of an issue for me, but for heavier vapers, you should seriously consider the second battery, or you will quickly lose patience with continually recharging.jacvapour pcc

JacVapour V1P PCC with batteries

One thing others have complained about is that the batteries have become easily broken while cleaning them, so watch out for this, and take care while cleaning – follow the instructions well. These same people have reported that the customer service was very helpful with any issues.

Vapour & Throat hit

Well, firstly, I was very satisfied with the way it hit my throat – it was immediate, smooth and put out a lot of vapour. Since the vapour produced was actually as good as most of the decent brands, there isn’t much more to say here – just that it was a very positive experience, like other leading E-Cigs. The whole vaping process is really simple – just take a deep drag and you will feel a nice throat hit with a nice vapour volume. I must say that in category Vapour/Throat hit JacVapour definitely is one of the best performers.

Taste & Flavours

You can select your flavours when you buy your kit, but you then get 5 of the same – this was a slight downside to me, as I would have liked to have been able to choose a variety. It seems to me that with all the options on the website, and being able to personalise and customise the kit you receive, the extra step of being able to choose 5 carts individually would have been nice.
So I ordered the medium strength tobacco flavour, and wasn’t disappointed at all – a good, realistic tobacco flavour, which reminded me of when I used to smoke real cigarettes. There are many other flavours on offer, but to experience the starter kit as it comes, I didn’t get to try them, so have a look on their website, and see which ones take your fancy.

Return Policy

JAC Vapour has several options when it comes to returns and warranties. The first is their 14-day money back guarantee. That covers all products, except cartomisers and e-liquids. The original buyer must give notice to JAC Vapour that they are returning a product within 14 days of the date purchased. All batteries and charging equipment have a warranty of at least 42 day with the personal charging cases having a warranty for 4 months.

As with all warranties, JAC Vapour’s warranties does not cover misuse or tampering of product by the customer. It also seem that their warranty does not cover shipping outside of the UK, which is unfortunate for customers not located in the UK.

Conclusion

It’s time to finish this Jacvapour review, so here is my final conclusion:

Overall, I was pretty impressed with JAC Vapour – the PCC is what normally what I go for, and I really liked it – it was really strong and I can’t see you having any problems with it for a long time! I would have preferred better options on the flavours available as part of the starter kit – basically to be able to pick several individual flavours instead of one, but the flavour itself was good.

The price for this, which is a good kit, is comparable to other decent kits, although the price can go up by adding more accessories to the kit. Overall, I would recommend JAC Vapour to those who want a good quality, stylish looking E-Cig and PCC, because this certainly fits that description, and then from there, you can customise it to make it your own.

vaping while drivingIn the old days, it was easy to smoke a regular cigarette in your car thanks to the integrated ashtrays in every vehicle, however over the last decade or so, this feature has now been phased out making it more difficult to get your fix while on the move. But is it any easier to enjoy vaping when out and about in your car? Many people think that vaping while driving is much safer than smoking a traditional cigarette as long as you make some vital preparations and bear some essential considerations in mind before hitting the open road.

Be Prepared

Before setting off, you should always make sure that your atomiser tank is full, as trying to refill with e-liquid while trying to control a vehicle can be very dangerous. You should also ensure your e-cig is fully charged so that you don’t have to fumble around plugging in your charger. If you are heading out on an especially long journey, it makes sense to take a spare device or plan in a rest stop so that you can charge up and refill.

Open Your Windows

Never try to vape with your car windows closed, especially if you are a cloud chaser. Thick vapour clouds will obscure your vision, so you should always leave your window or sunroof open a crack so that the vapour can escape. If you can, try to blow the vapour in the direction of the open window while the car is moving. Vapour clouds also cause your windshield to fog up over time, and this can be very dangerous, especially if you are driving in the dark. Clean your windows regularly to prevent residue building up. Another way to cut back on windshield residue is to opt for an e-juice that has a lower ratio of VG, as higher proportions of VG in e-liquids results in thicker vapour clouds.

Always Watch The Road

driving and vaping tipsTempting as it may be to try to pick up your dropped e-cig, resist the urge. Unlike a regular cigarette, an e-cigarette cannot burn holes in your vehicle’s carpet or start a fire, so you don’t need to panic or take your eyes off the road to pick it up. Always wait until it is safe to pull over before you retrieve it.

Never Put Your Drip Tip Too Close To Your Teeth

Remember that modern roads are rarely smooth, but instead have cracks, crevices and potholes that may cause your e-cig to move around in your mouth as the vehicle bounces up and down in response to the road surface. This could cause damage to your teeth, and nobody wants to pay for a expensive trip to the dentist. Instead, hold the drip tip between your lips, and always go for a plastic or rubber drip tip.

Never Litter

Throwing empty cartomisers out of your car window is an absolute no-no. Not only would you be littering, but the bits of broken plastic and glass may pierce your car’s tires causing damage. It takes no effort to keep any disposable parts inside your vehicle until you come to a stop and can put them in the trash.

Find Somewhere Safe To Hold Your E-Cig

At the moment, no engineers have considered designing a place inside a vehicle to store an e-cig upright. This can be a problem if your device leaks through its airflow slots if it is laid down horizontally. Although there are some gadgets on the market which fit in cars and which may suit your vaping device, these do not work with all devices and therefore you could try using a homemade solution. A rubber band inserted through an air vent is adequate to hold your e-cig vertically, however remember not to have your airflow set at too high or low a temperature if you opt for this method.

Avoid Storing E-Cigs and E-Juices Inside Your Car If The Temperature Is Low

ecigwizard reviewIf you are traveling in a cold environment, avoid leaving your e-liquid and e-cigs inside your car. This is because in cold weather, your e-liquid consistency will change, becoming thicker, and this could lead to problems with leakage or wicking. If you cannot avoid leaving your device and e-juice in your car, opt for an e-liquid with a higher proportion of PG as it does not become as thick as VG.

Consider Buying A Driver Vaping Kit

Several manufacturers have now recognised the problem of vaping while driving and have designed devices to improve drivers’ experiences. These devices are plugged into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter, have long cords and can be used as both a manual and an automatic e-cig so that you can choose whether or not to push the fire button.

Stay Healthy

It is always important that you stay in complete control of your vehicle at all times while on the road, so avoid opting for too high a nicotine content for your e-juice while driving, as higher concentrations can lead to dizziness. If you do feel light-headed while vaping on the move, make sure that you pull over as soon as it is safe. Vaping can also have a drying effect on your throat and this can lead to coughing fits. Obviously, this can be dangerous while driving, so make sure to stay hydrated by keeping a bottle of water to hand with a sports-style spout.

Although vaping is generally a lower cost alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes over the long-term, you may still be finding that your habit is becoming unaffordable due to increasing costs. So how can you save money on your vaping experience? Here are some simple tips to help you cut the cost of vaping.

Using A Higher Resistance Coil

high resistance coilIf you opt for a higher resistance coil for your clearomiser tank, the amount of power required is greatly reduced since the wire resists, pushing back against the current that runs through it. Since a lower amount of electricity is necessary to heat up the coil, a smaller amount of e-liquid is vaporised and this will help you to economise in two ways – firstly by increasing the amount of time between battery charges and secondly by increasing your battery’s lifespan meaning that you won’t have to replace it as quickly.

Turn Down Your Wattage

At one time, most vapers had devices that had no adjustable settings, however today increasing numbers of people are choosing devices that have variable wattages. Although a higher wattage produces a more flavourful vaping experience, it also drains e-liquids, battery power and coils much more quickly and this ramps up the cost of your vaping. If you are already considering using a high resistance coil, a lower wattage goes hand-in-hand with this, however even if you prefer sub-ohm vaping it is still possible to turn your wattage down and have an enjoyable vaping experience. A standard 30 watt 0.5Ω coil allows you to turn your wattage down to 20 watts without compromising on your clouds or flavour. Cutting the amount of power used on every puff by a third will save yourself a third of your battery power, reducing your overall costs.

Go For A Higher Nicotine Content

If you have already lowered the amount of nicotine you are consuming, you may be reluctant to go back to a higher level, however this is one way to cut some of your costs. When you use an e-liquid with a nicotine content of over 6mg in conjunction with a higher resistance coil and a lower wattage, you will find your vaping experience much more comfortable than it was with a higher wattage and a lower resistance coil. Because an e-juice with a higher nicotine content administers a more powerful dose than lower strength e-liquids, you will require fewer puffs to get the same effect and will therefore reduce the amount of e-juice you use meaning that you need to make fewer e-liquid purchases.

Look Out For The Sales

e-cig saleWhen you are shopping for new vaping equipment or replacement e-liquids, one of the best ways to save money is to look out for discounts and sales. These represent a fantastic way to stock up on all of your favourite products for a fraction of the original cost. Sometimes, you may find that the reduced e-juices are unfamiliar brands or flavours, however they are always worth trying out as experimenting with something new can be fun and you may discover a new favourite.

Buy Larger Capacity Bottles

The majority of e-juices come in a choice of sizes – most commonly in 10ml, 15ml or 30ml volumes. However, you will discover that some flavours are also available in bigger sizes, often up to 60ml, 100ml, or possible even as large as 180ml bottles. If you buy in bulk you are sure to make a saving as, not only will you avoid having to stock up so frequently, but you usually get a discount when you buy a large amount at one time. You will also be able to save on your delivery costs.

Go To A Vaping Expo

Not only can you can forge a network of contacts and make new friends, but you can also pick up several samples from manufacturers and take them home to enjoy at your leisure. This will give you a stock of free e-juice that will help you to save money on your refills.

Buy Online

Although many people prefer to shop in their local vape store, one of the best ways to save money on your vaping is to shop online. Generally online vape stores have lower prices with better deals and frequent discounts that make internet shopping worthwhile. Take the time to shop around and compare prices, and you will save even more money. Often the manufacturer’s own website may be cheaper than other stores as they sell direct, cutting out the middleman.

Buy A Mod Kit

Although you may like the appeal of buying your kit piece by piece for the ultimate in customisation, this approach can be a lot more expensive than buying a full mod kit. These packages come with a mod, dripper or tank, a battery, a charger and often even some e-liquid at one reasonable price. These are an especially good choice for novice vapers.

Build Your Own Coils

Save money on purchasing coil cartridges that come pre-built by learning to build your own coils. There are many helpful tutorials that show you how to do this on YouTube and once you have perfected the technique you will actually find that you are getting a more customised vaping experience as well as saving money.

Make Your Own E-Liquid

If you want to save even more, you could learn to make e-liquid yourself by following a tutorial on YouTube. Some channels can even give you advice on how to replicate your favourite e-liquid flavours.
