  • Choosing Your E Liquid Flavour

    Electronic cigarettes are loved by smokers for many reasons including their versatility in terms of flavours. As a vaper, you won’t be stuck with the regular menthol flavours as found in traditional cigarettes. With e cigs you can explore a number of eclectic flavours! And enjoy a new one every day!

    This variety of flavours is offered by the e liquid- which is the ‘juice’ of electric cigs. The cartomiser of an ecig vaporises this e liquid which is released as the smoke from the electronic cigarette. Top e cig suppliers offer a number of e juice flavours ranging from the regular menthol to apple, cherry, cola and even coffee and vanilla. As a vaper you have to choice to pick the flavour most stimulating for your taste buds and enjoy the smoking sensation in your favourite flavour!

    You can sample these unique concoctions of e juice and vape away without having to worry about the horrid tobacco smell clinging to your clothes ever again. To pick a flavour from choices like apple, or chocolate, or vanilla, can be a tough decision- even more so for first time vapers. That is why we suggest that if you are switching to ecigs from regular cigarettes; pick the traditional tobacco or menthol flavours at first. This will allow you to make the transition with ease.

    Then work towards discovering your special vaping experience by trying all flavours one at a time, to know which one is the best eliquid flavour for you! If you have a favourite e cig flavour then share it with us right here!

  • How Internet is the Biggest Ally of E-Cigarettes?

    E cigs are finding more users everyday across the world. But at the same time they are being declared ‘unsafe’ by governments and health bodies. It is no hidden story that electronic cigarettes have had a tough journey as a product. Since their arrival they have been targeted by pharmaceutical companies, tobacco companies and other lobbies threatened by the expanding user base of e-cigarettes.

    Keeping the long list of those campaigning against e-cigarettes aside, there is one powerful ally which has allowed e cigarettes to become popular among users. It is the Internet. Yes, it is all thanks to the internet that people can find access to clear and unbiased information about e cigarettes. They can read the findings of scientists who have proved the safety of e cig vapour over traditional cigarette smoke; or read blogs of other users who have switched to e cigs and are pretty happy about it.

    Users wanting to opt for this best alternative of traditional cigarette turn to the Internet to educate themselves about how e-cigarettes work, what they contain, and what makes them an ideal choice for smart smokers. The World Wide Web has given a platform for e cig users to read and then even write their own blogs to spread the word about e cigs and their usage.

    There are many forums online which not only provide excellent advice on e cig usage or on finding a good ecig supplier; but also act as a platform where people come together to inform others about impending bans on the smokeless cigarette and what can they do about that. Do you want to pitch in and spread a good word about e cigs as well? Why don’t you start by commenting on this blog and sharing it with your friends?

  • SFATA – Making Electronic Cigarettes Safe

    SFATA – Making Electronic Cigarettes Safe.

    Convenience Store News, has reported about a new electronic cigarette advocacy group.

    Did you hear about it?

    • This group has originated as the Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA). It is basically a consortium of North American e-cigarette distributors and retailers. They are dedicated towards promoting the idea of self-regulation within the industry.
    • They initiated by attending an October 8 (2012) trade show in Las Vegas. The team promoted their organisation and the ideals.
    • The group did not only spread a word about self-regulation. Also, raised over $500,000 in voluntary donations. They have decided to use this money in promoting themselves and growing their organization.

    SFATA literature:

    • that self-regulation is a great move to ensure electronic cigarettes safety without the intervention of government.
    • They cited the efforts from the officials in the European Union.
    • The World Health Organisation and U.S. FDA, who are looking forward to potential prohibitive e-cig legislation.
    • Officials at SFATA stress on removing the need for any regulation by voluntarily establishing appropriate standards as well as members agreeing to this idea.
    • Launch of new vapor product lines contribute to the growth of the e-cigarette market globally.
    • The vapor products market is witnessing an increase in desire among end-users globally to quit smoking.

    Electronic Cigarettes products are restricted in several countries:

    • firstly, MEA
    • secondly, Latin America
    • also, Saudi Arabia,
    • Brazil,
    • and Argentina.
  • New Study – Electronic Cigarettes raised Productivity at Workplace

    Recently, we have highlighted some new stories on the UK companies experimenting with electronic cigarettes at their workplace.

    Actually, these companies were curious to know if there was any positive impact of e-cigarette on their employees' productivity by making them stay at their desk rather than letting them step outside after every hour for smoking. The results were positive; hence, those companies gave e-cigarette starter kits to their smoking employees for free. This has helped them in achieving a higher output from their employees.

    There are many anti-smoking organisations and business groups in Arizona, which went on the same track and achieved the desired results. As per Phoenix Business Journal, the ‘Smoke-Free Arizona’ Act has outlawed smoking in the workplace in the year 2007. There was a declining trend in the workplace productivity in different companies due to high ratio of smokers working at their premises.

    As electronic cigarettes do not produce any smoke, it is safe to use them at no smoking places. After seeing the benefits in UK companies, businessmen in US have also started introducing e-cigarettes in their companies. In fact, smoke-free Arizona, a non-profit group who spearheaded the legislative effort nearly five years ago, has also shown thumps up to this move.

    It has been seen that smoking employees spends only 83% of the time at their desk, resulting in a decline pro-rata in their productivity. However when these employees use ecigs, their productivity increases significantly. This is not only good for meeting business deadlines but also for boosting staff morale.

  • Power Outage and Charging your Ecigarette

    Yes, to enjoy the uninterrupted pleasure of smoking your E-cig anywhere, you must have it charged all the time.

    • That said, there is no guarantee that you will have access to 24x7 electricity to charge your E-cig batteries wherever you go.
    • For instance what if you decide to spend the New Year in Philippines and there is a power outage, what will you do then?
    • That is why you must be one up against all odds (natural disasters or man-made ones!) with ways at hand to charge your E-cig batteries.
    • The first thing to do is to keep stock of e-cig cartridges/cartomisers as well as e-liquid with you. Sometimes you could be stuck in incessant rain or be snowed in, or the internet could be down for you, so you cannot place an order online.
    • You should therefore be well stocked for at least a couple of weeks (hopefully :) ). Another great move would be to have more than one; in fact have several electric cigarette chargers as well as batteries to act as backups.
    • Remember to always charge your batteries during the night so that during the day you can vape and do your work uninterrupted.
    • In case of power outage in your building, you can also rely on car battery chargers. These are a smart choice in case the area you are going to be in faces long power cuts.
    • These chargers will not only help you in the case of a road trip, but also when the electricity is out for days on end. So, what other ways can you think of keeping your ecig all charged up? Leave your views in the comments below.
  • A New E Liquid Standards Association Gets Formed in the US

    The e cigarette industry is growing across the world. Their popularity is growing at a rapid rate in the US. As a recent survey of convenience stores in the country conducted by UBS- the Swiss global financial services company, reveals.

    As per the survey of more than 10,000 stores, 82% of them stock electronic cigarettes and make a profit from selling them.

    Valentines day

    There is however a demand for transparency in the manufacturing and marketing norms of e cigarettes. Many US trade groups have come forward to take up the task of ensuring this ‘transparency.’

    The latest among such trade groups is the American E-liquid Manufacturing Standards Association- which has announced its dedication in establishing a standard of producing e liquids and also assuring compliance by member companies.

    A New E Liquid Standards Association Gets Formed in the US

    One look at the AEMSA website and you learn of their primary objective of “creating responsible and sustainable standards for the safe manufacturing of "e-liquids" used in electronic cigarettes.”

    The group consists of volunteer e liquid manufacturers from the US who are all supportive of the idea to define a standard of manufacturing and quality of the final product found in an e cigarette starter kit.

    There are certain sectors that are rallying against the electric cigarette industry. Maybe the formation of such groups will bring some sort of transparency in the e cigarette market.

  • Stylish & Affordable Smoking Makes Ecigarettes More Popular Than Ever

    It is time you got on to the smarter smoking wagon- e cigs. Millions in the UK and around the world are already ‘vaping’ as we speak.

    So what makes e cigs such a raving trend? Is it the plethora of flavoured e-juices to choose from and get a new smoking experience everytime? Or the fact that e cigs are free of the thousands of toxic chemicals found in a tobacco cigarette smoke?

    Some vapers have shared their reasons of loving the e cig. They swear by their e cigs simply because of the freedom that comes with their e cig kit: the freedom to smoke anywhere-anytime! The smoking ban in the UK has forced many smokers to go out of a restaurant, bar, shopping centre or their offices and homes to grab a smoke. But this is not the case with e cigarette smokers. This is because- e cigs are smokeless cigarettes which can be inhaled anywhere as they release only vapour. People looking for alternatives to tobacco cigarettes have found the perfect solution with ecigs because they are very close to the real thing.

    Vaping is more popular than ever. They are stylish and affordable. Many vapers who switched to electronic cigarettes from regular tobacco cigarettes have let us know that after they made the switch, they soon realised how much they were spending on tobacco cigarettes, especially as tobacco prices are rising continuously.

    So, what are you still waiting for? No toxic smoke, freedom to smoke anywhere and a lot of savings- switch to e cigs now!

    R.J. Reynolds is one of the brands that have made an entry.
    Other companies have noticed that more and more people are choosing e cigs as an alternative to tobacco cigarettes.

    That is why they have set up ventures to come up with tobacco alternatives. The biggest name engaged in finding alternatives is British American Tobacco which established Nicoventures to find cigarette replacements and is presently working on a dedicated nicotine device.

    Major players in the e cigarette industry believe that that as their industry is gaining ground and solidifying its presence. Things are looking up with increased investments and marketing support being provided for the industry.

    Innovations are on in e cig designs, eliquid flavours and more. The future seems pretty exciting for e cig users!

  • Tobacco Companies Lose Fight for Plain Packaging

    Tobacco Companies Lose Fight for Plain Packaging.

    Top companies in Australia lost a tough legal battle against a government ban.

    The companies in question are big names like:

    • Firstly, Phillip Morris,
    • Secondly, British American Tobacco
    • and Imperial Tobacco
    • Also, they have been ordered by the Australian court to brand their cigarette packs with images of cigarette smoking victims.

    These images on the packs will be explicit showing the extent of internal damage tobacco causes.

    The purpose behind the idea is to make smokers see the damage they may be doing to their bodies and eventually discourage them from smoking.

    The tobacco companies opposed this order:

    •  wanted to continue on their regular branding practices,
    • but the Australian court dismissed their appeal.

    As per the new court order:

    • cigarette packs coming out from December 1 will have these images on them.
    • Australia’s Attorney General, Nicola Roxon has been quoted across the media saying,

    “The message to the rest of the world is, ‘big tobacco can be taken on and beaten’. Without brave governments willing to take the fight up to big tobacco. They’d still have us believing that tobacco is neither harmful nor addictive.”

    After this monumental decision being implemented by the highest court in Australia:

    • the European Union is also considering to follow suit by banning logos found on cigarette packs.
    • The Union has to review its 2001 Tobacco Products Directive in the near future
    • and is considering this ban in the continent.
    • The British government itself is all set to take a decision on plain packaging after it wrapped up a four-month consultation.

    Do you think plain packaging will deter people from smoking? Vape on your e juice while you mull on it to get some great thoughts!

  • New Study - Electronic cigarettes do not damage the heart

    New Study - Electronic cigarettes do not damage the heart.

    E cigarettes have found new favour with scientists it seems, and it is something we have welcomed.

    The latest study to come out in favour of ecigs says:

    • that they do not cause harm to the heart.
    • Also, Please keep in mind that Ecigaretteweb promotes and sells e cigs as tobacco cigarette alternatives only. We make no claims for any e cig health benefits.

    Moving to this ground breaking study:

    • The European Society of Cardiology has released this study recently. “Electronic cigarettes do not damage the heart” taken up by a Dr Konstantinos Farsalinos.
    • Also, The researchers found that smoking one tobacco cigarette led to significant acute myocardial dysfunction. Electronic cigarettes had no acute adverse effects on cardiac function.

    The study compared the damage:

    • that cigarettes do to the heart against electronic cigarettes
    • and any harm they may cause, and e cigarettes came out on top

    They measured myocardial function in:

    • 20 daily smokers aged 25-45 before and after smoking one tobacco cigarette. Also, 22 daily electronic cigarette users of similar age before and after using the device for 7 minutes.
    • They not only measured heart rate and blood pressure. Also echocardiography, a process. Which uses sound waves to create an image of the heart and test how well the valves are working.
    • One of the main focuses for this study was the left ventricle which receives oxygenated blood in order for this to be pumped around the body.
    • The results showed increases in blood pressure and heart rate for tobacco smokers along with significant defects in the left ventricle function indicating worsening function.
    • For the electronic cigarette users, none of the echocardiographic tests showed any significant worsening.
    • They did see a ‘slight elevation’ in the diastolic (resting phase) blood pressure and concluded this was due to nicotine being absorbed at a lower rate than tobacco smoking.

    The study says,

    “It is too early to say whether the electronic cigarette is a revolution in tobacco harm reduction but the potential is there. Laboratory analyses indicate that it is significantly less toxic and our study has shown no significant defects in cardiac function after acute use.”

    This news comes in quite soon after vapour produced by e cigarette cartridges was shown in a study to have no effect of “passive vaping” in blood counts of non-users, and has been accepted with great joy by the entire e cig industry.
