  • The Big Price Comparison - Cigarette vs. E-Cigarette Expenditure

    These are troubled times. The markets are falling, stocks are low, unemployment is at an all-time high and everyone is cutting costs.

    You may have also altered your budget a bit, maybe by reducing the amount spent on shopping. Dining and other recreational activities. But there is an expenditure which is not necessary, is highly expensive and extremely hard to let go - your pack of cigarettes.

    The average pack of cigarettes in the UK costs about £7.46 and prices can be increased anytime, in fact with every budget, the prices are raised. A smoker usually spends hundreds of pounds monthly on cigarettes. On the other hand, you can get an e cig starter kit for £22.49 or even less, the refill cartridges are then bought along with the potential of using your own e juice. A bit of clever maths shows that you can reduce your yearly smoking costs by a huge 80%. Once you start using, the cost of one e cig cartomiser, which lasts as long as a pack of cigarettes, comes down to just over £1, only a fraction of the cost that you have to pay compared to regular cigarettes.

    The e cig starter kits are a one-time investment and later you need only buy refill cartridges or e-liquid for refilling.

    If you become a vaper, you can see how the savings begin to rack up. What’s more, you don’t have to give up on the smoking experience as e cigarettes offer a similar physical and tactile satisfaction. Head online, E cig users have shared their pocket friendly experiences, and see for yourself how electronic cigarettes helped them make substantial savings.

  • The History of Electronic Cigarettes

    The History of Electronic Cigarettes

    E cigarettes have been in the UK for more than half a decade now.

    With increasingly high number of Britons taking up vaping:

    • there remains no doubt on the effectiveness of e cigs as alternative to traditional cigarettes.
    • While you sample the latest cola flavoured e liquid in your vapestick. Do you ever wonder where did these neat little sticks come from?

    The History of Electronic Cigarettes

    Firstly, the history of electronic cigarettes is marked with some debate, quite like most historical issues. So, some people believe that ecig was first patented in 1963 by Herbert Gilbert.

    Also, It is important to note here that Gilbert did not invent a vapour producing cigarette. The e cig that we know and love was patented by Hon Lik in 2003.

    The inspiration to invent the e cig came to Hon Lik in a dream. Hon was a heavy smoker and suffered from respiratory infection. Also, During a bout of sickness, he somehow managed to catch some sleep and dreamt that he was drowning in a deep sea and was nearly dead. Then he saw the sea water being vaporised and he found himself in a wonderland full of colourful fog.

    This dream sequence involving vapours inspired Hon to think of a way to get the ‘smoke’ out of smoking a cigarette. For a year Hon worked on perfecting his dream product and in 2004, he invented the electronic cigarette.

    The invention was a compact battery powered device which vaporized a nicotine solution with an atomiser.

    Thanks to Hon Lik, we now have e cigs which give the same fulfilment as regular smoking with the e liquid turning in to vapour.

    E cigs allow for smart smoking and people can vape on newer flavours of e liquid. UK is seeing a rapid growth in the number of vapers- all looking for a refreshing smoking experience.

  • E Cigarettes are More Environment Friendly than Regular Cigarettes

    E Cigarettes are More Environment Friendly than Regular Cigarettes.

    A couple of months back, National Geographic:

    • came out with an article which highlighted another benefit of becoming a vaper and leaving smoking behind.
    • The article states how the environment is suffering because of the cigarette butts people throw away.
    • It is quite a common practice for cigarette smokers to throw the cigarette butts out the windows of their cars. These butts pose a major environmental risk, as highlighted by National Geographic.

    Did you know that it takes somewhere between one and a half years to a decade for the core of a cigarette butt to completely decompose?

    This time duration is not as long as it takes other toxins like plastic to decompose. Also, it is long enough to lead to serious damage. You may say that it is just a cigarette butt. However the damage is exponential when millions of cigarette butts are thrown away every day.

    The National Geographic mentioned E Cigarettes as having the potential to “reduce this toxic burden”.

    As you vapers already know, with an ecig, you do not need an ashtray. There is no ash or cigarettes butt to dispose of.

    E Cigarettes are reusable and all you need to do is:

    • fill the cartridge up with e-juice for a new smoking session.
    • Moreover, the trash produced by bottles of e-juice and other components of electronic cigarettes is recyclable. Therefore does not harm the environment in the same way.

    This article by Nat Geo is not in favour of e cigs, but does show how regular cigarettes are causing pollution. That is why online e cig companies have welcomed the article.

    E cigs are truly a great alternative of smoking. Also, one can get a fresh smoking experience by changing the flavour of their eliquid. It is time you switched to vaping!
