What exactly is an electronic cigarette?
Unlike a traditional cigarettes the electronic cigarette doesn’t burn anything therefore produces no carbon monoxide, tar or any of the harmful chemicals produced and associated with smoking cigarettes. The electronic cigarette does look and feel like a “normal” cigarette however it works very differently.
The three parts of an electronic cigarette: A battery which may be charged up as required, a tank or pod which contains the e liquid and the atomizer (can also be referred to as atomiser or clearomizer or clearomiser) which is made up of a heater coil and has a wick (wickless versions are also available). The battery powers the atomizer which heats the e-liquid and turns it into a vapour for consumers to inhale and enjoy.
Why choose an e-cigarette over traditional cigarettes?
There are a number of great health reasons to change over to vaping. Firstly, it is much easier to monitor and lower your nicotine level with an e-cigarette and you don’t inhale or exhale carbon monoxide, tar or any of the other harmful chemicals associated with tobacco cigarette. For these reasons vaping is considered the healthier alternative to smoking.
Secondly e-cigarettes may be enjoyed with a wide variety of flavours and the ability to mix flavours to suit your mood makes this type of vaping a more personal one as it may be altered to fit your personal tastes.
While E-cigarettes are not designed, nor should they be advertised as being produced to help people quit smoking altogether it is true that many who choose to try e-liquids and e-cigarettes often choose not to go back to tobacco products. With significantly less nicotine in e-liquids the presumption is that quitting smoking for vapers may be easier than for cigarette smokers.
Can I use e-cigarettes to cut down on the nicotine I currently inhale?
E-cigarettes are not designed to help people quit smoking however they are handy in that you may more closely monitor how much nicotine you use and may switch down through the strengths.
What exactly is e liquid?
E liquid is the flavoured product that is heated and inhaled by the vaper using an electronic cigarette. Most e-liquids are very similar ingredients wise although there are a wide number of different flavours available. E-Liquids are made up from flavourings, nicotine (optional) and Propylene Glycol(PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG)
What is the best flavour?
We have over 60 flavours available and which is best depends entirely on your preference. There are 9 key brands to choose from available in different formats (Freebase, Salt Nic, Concentrates and CBD) all you have to do is narrow down which of the different flavour profiles you fancy trying first. Please note that not all of our ranges are available in each country. Please check first before purchasing.
What does vaping feel like?
Vaping is much like smoking a traditional cigarette in that you mimic the same actions and still inhale and exhale. You don’t lose that “hit” at the back of your throat when you change to e-cigs so in many ways they are very similar. The big difference is in the amount of flavour choices you have when you opt for e-cigarettes over regular ones. You also have the option to not have nicotine.
How long does e liquid last?
When stored in a cool and dark place e-liquids have an expected shelf life of around two years before the quality of the liquid starts to diminish.
How do I choose which strength to buy?
E liquids come in different strengths dependant on how much nicotine they contain.
Zero strength nicotine level – 0mg
Low strength nicotine level – 6-11mg
Medium Strength nicotine level – 12-17mg
High strength nicotine level – 18-36mg
When choosing consider your current smoking habits and how much nicotine you are used to. Choose the lowest level to suit your needs as more nicotine than you are used to will leave you feel dizzy, lightheaded and generally unwell, the same as it would with traditional cigarettes if you swap between lights and a stronger brand containing more nicotine etc.
Is e liquid safe to use?
E-Liquid should be kept out of the reach of children, should not be ingested or tipped into the mouth and should be handled carefully. If used according to instructions, there is no reason to believe that e-liquids are not safe.
