Still Smoking? Here Are 10 Reasons to Try E-Cigarettes

quitsmokingcigaretteE-cigarettes are revolutionizing the way smoking is enjoyed. They have changed the game entirely, and brought about an incredibly modern movement that is set to become a billion-dollar industry this year. So if you’re still puffing away on tobacco, have you thought about giving vapor a go? If you haven’t, here are 10 reasons to try them out. Who knows, you may come to realize how awesome it can be to go smoke-free!

  1. They cost less. Way less. And we all know how expensive cigarettes can be, especially if you live in a major metropolitan locale.
  2. E-cigs are more versatile; you have many more options as to where you can smoke them. You can also customize your products to your liking.
  3. No horrendous smell. Vapor is so much cleaner than smoke! It doesn’t stick to surfaces or stick around for the long haul, making your life smell stale.
  4. Those crazy chemicals that get laced into traditional cigarettes aren’t welcome with e-liquids.
  5. There is no tobacco, so nothing actually gets burned as you smoke. This means no tar and no ash.
  6. No toxin-loaded filters.
  7. E-cigs are better for the environment; not easy to pollute with, they’re reusable, and they last much longer.
  8. No need for lighters, matches, gum to conceal your smoker’s breath, or tons of fragrance to mask the smell.
  9. You’ve got more convenient options; such as our Cartridge Replenishment Program that hooks you up with automatic deliveries of your e-cigarette cartridges.
  10.  Convenience in mass quantities. You can use them around nearly anyone because they do not emit smoke, have no smell, and simply are not cigarettes.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! The many benefits, and ways electronic cigarettes can fit into your lifestyle are incredible. They are much more in tune with modern life than tobacco cigarettes, and they truly offer a digital alternative that is making a huge difference in the lives of others. Yes, they look awesome, feel  amazing, and give smokers a lot of freedom but in order to get the full scope of what e-cigarettes do, you’ve got to try them!

E-Cigs and Night Life

You love the nightlife; you love to boogie, but your cigarettes are not quite fitting into your need to get down.

Parties, the dating scene, having fun, and mingling amongst the masses can be tricky if you’re a smoker, as you most likely already know if nicotine is your thing. With all the bans and red tape, tobacco is not the most social of vices. However, with the good fortune of e-cigarettes, you have the option to light up without smoke whenever partying is on the agenda!

So to put it simply, if you want to smoke and still have a great time when you’re trying to cut loose, e-cigarettes are the way to go. If you do spend any amount of time out of the house in social settings, you’ve probably come across others smoking with electronic cigarettes. They’ve gotten so popular in the last couple years that it’s pretty hard to miss them, with so many smokers switching to the electronic side. And it really does make perfect sense.

Meeting people when you’re a smoker can be difficult. Nonsmokers are often pretty staunch, and many of them have no interest in dating smokers. And then there are the physical attributes of smokers that can be a turn off… you know, like the heavy smell, the stained teeth, the dingy skin and hair. Those who are not enveloped in a haze of smoke and covered in a slight film of tar are just more attractive. Luckily for vapers, e-cigarettes leave behind no tar, and no smoke lingering on everything.

If you’re vaping, nonsmokers would never know, nor would they have anything to complain about. Should you be in the position to be socializing together, they wouldn’t really be able to make snide comments regarding your tobacco scent or cancer-stick usage. Leveling the playing field, if you will.

Change your pace, have more fun, and get an e-cigarette starter kit if you want to have a good time. When you go out to hit the clubs and bars, you’re looking for fun; not to get reprimanded for breaking rules and annoying others because you’re invading their oxygen supply!

Mobile Vaping

E-cigs make the perfect travel partners. Whether it’s daily travel; to and from work, or travel of longer distances, they just work better when you need something versatile to get the job done.

There are lots of problems with smoke, and one of them is that it’s not a very people-friendly activity. Nonsmokers usually hate it, and there aren’t that many public places you are able to freely smoke in and feel totally welcome at the same time. When you’ve got a lot going on, electronic cigarettes make things so much easier!

Traveling with e-cigarettes can be really enjoyable and it takes off one level of stress. And even if that travel just involves a daily, one-hour commute to your work locale, and you get there via mass transit, being able to vape at your discretion amongst the masses is pretty darn wonderful.

With e-cigarette accessories, the availability of different chargers, and being able to use a single battery and cartridge for long stretches keeps it all simple. Accessories will help you keep it all together, and you can have your nicotine practically anytime you’d like.

In any instance of high mobility, here are some reasons why e-cigarettes are just better:

1 cartridge is equal to 1.5-2 cigarette packs; they go way farther, and don’t involve much waste. It’s more convenient than going through a single cigarette every time you smoke.

Batteries are sleek, slim, and fit practically everywhere; they take no effort to carry around and use.

Charging batteries is more convenient and more modern than working with fire, ash, and cigarette butts. Plus they eliminate the mess involved with burning things!

Accessories give you updated options; there’s nothing like wearing your e-cig around your neck on the lanyard for easy access!

If your travels have you going longer, farther distances, even still e-cigarettes are the better choice. One of the biggest factors to traveling with as few hang-ups as possible includes being able to swiftly move and go where you need to go; stopping to smoke and getting outdoors to a designated spot can just interrupt your flow in the worst way! E-cigarettes give you options than traditional cigarettes can’t. Why smoke when you can vape?

 

Crazy Questions You’ll Get Asked About Vaping! (And How to Answer Them!)

Ah, you know how it goes when you blaze a trail; everyone’s going to have an opinion, they’re going to report about spin-stories they’ve heard on the evening news, and they’re going to ask some pretty wild questions. So when vaping, don’t be surprised if you get asked some crazy question! Here is a sample of a few of them, and how to answer!

How do you know what’s in those things?

Well, any good e-cigarette brand will let you know what’s in your e-cigarette. Most brands that care about their reputation will share what’s in them, and typically the ingredient list of cartridges is relatively quite small, especially compared to the THOUSANDS of ingredients and toxins found in traditional cigarettes.

How do you know it’s any different than smoking cigarettes?

The similarities are there; they contain nicotine, vapor, and the ability to use them like cigarettes, but that’s where they end. They contain no tobacco and nothing gets burned; the main components in smoking a cigarette, so that’s where the similarities end, making them very different.

How bad does it taste?

Taste is subjective; not everyone likes the same things. Part of smoking e-cigarettes is finding a brand that works for you. Often part of the figuring things out in the beginning will entail trying different e-cigarette flavors. Most people who stick with e-cigs find flavors they really enjoy, and do not use them if they taste bad!

Aren’t they more dangerous than regular cigarettes?

Testing is currently being done, but so far there has been no data to prove that e-cigarettes are any more dangerous than traditional cigarettes.

The bottom line is that you should not believe everything you hear! E-cigarettes have been used for around 5 years, and when used with common sense, they are enjoyable, satisfying, tobacco-free alternatives to traditional cigarettes!

Cigarettes Are All the Same; E-Cigs Are Totally Different

Cigarettes and electronic cigarettes share only a handful of similarities. E-cigarettes are after all, alternatives to the conventional. They offer nicotine, a feeling of smoking, similar flavors as well as starkly different ones, and the ability to breathe in something that feels and looks like smoke (vapor). That’s about where the similarities end, though. Cigarettes are cut and dry; they contain chemical-laden filters and dried tobacco, also chemical-enriched, rolled into papers, and across all brands you get a similar format despite differences in strengths and taste. They are always the same, with no variation.

With e-cigs, you have the option of choosing so many different varieties, all to achieve that same smoke-like experience. You have the option to choose disposables, 2-piece models like our own that simulate the traditional cigarette in looks, you can purchase the sort that require you to fill liquids yourself, and you can even purchase styles you build yourself if you’re into that kind of thing. E-cigarette batteries come in so many shapes and sizes, you have the ability to use so many different chargers and accessories. The thing with e-cigs is that you have so much more ability to choose, rather than just settling for what a single company, or industry for that matter, hands you.

Optima Cigs e-cigarettes are known as 2-piece e-cigarettes, comprised of two basic parts. The reusable battery is the main component, and the cartridges are used and then disposed of. You are able to choose your nicotine strength, flavor, and which accessories you want to use to enhance your convenience.

If variety is the spice of life, e-cigarettes really let you live adventurously! They sure keep the smoking experience interesting, and they let you do it without tobacco. With e-cigs, “one size fits all” is completely, utterly irrelevant, because when you vape, it’s all about getting what you want!

How to Use Your Optima Cigs

If you are just starting to use e-cigarettes, or are interested in beginning, you may be wondering about how it’s done. Sure you are probably aware that it is quite similar to smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes, but exactly how they work, and exactly how you use them may be more of a mystery to you. Well, don’t fret, as we are going to let you know how these innovative electronic cigarettes work as they let you enjoy nicotine without tobacco! Above all, they really are so much more convenient than their combustible alternatives and if you are still smoking tobacco, you’ve got to give them a try!

How They Work

It’s all about technology in how they work. The parts come together to create a smoke-like experience. OPTIMA e-cigarettes are 2-piece e-cigarettes. This means they consist of a battery, which is the actual e-cigarette, and a cartridge that is filled with liquid and gets replaced when it has been used through. Inside of both the battery and the cartridge, are additional parts that contribute to the overall performance, and result in the excellent ability to get your smoke-free nicotine.

Setting up is simple. When you receive your starter kit, it’s advisable to charge your batteries to full capacity before the first use. After they have been charged, get your cartridges attached by simply screwing them on. Even though we offer two different battery sizes, High Capacity and Mini, they both work the same way, and use the same cartridges. To actually use your electronic cigarette, simply put your mouth to the mouthpiece and begin puffing, enjoy the nicotine, and repeat; that’s it!

Using electronic cigarettes is simple and easy, and if it doesn’t go over easily the first time, keep working at it. You can always give us a call, should you need anything in addition. We’re always here to help you enjoy our products to the fullest!

 

Best Places to Vape!

Vaping is fun, and sometimes it can transform any dull, mundane activity to a much more enjoyable one. Here are some of the best places to vape, and why!

The Park

Hanging with the kids, looking for a reason to have some fun while you burn some energy, or just strolling for the pure pleasure of taking a walk, bring your e-cig! You’d do the same with your regular cigs, only now you won’t be littering, or exhaling second hand smoke in a place where it’s totally unwanted!

The Mall

You know you’ve always wanted to smoke as you amble down the walkways of your favorite indoor shopping arena, and now you can! Smoking conveniently, as you get your shopping fix has never been so nice!

In the Car

Road tripping, running errands, commuting, all the places you go in your car are much more enjoyable now that you can smoke without creating a biohazard with fumes, annoying those traveling with you, dropping ash everywhere, or possibly burning your lux leather seats or snazzy interior. Best bonus for road trips, because stopping the car every time you want to smoke gets really annoying and time consuming for everyone, smokers or nonsmokers. These are times when a car charger really comes in handy! Vapor, please!

Parties

Big groups of people are much better when smokers are vaping. It’s much more courteous, and just better all around because you never know what kind of action you’ll miss when you’re smoking outside, and things are getting fun inside.

Work

8-hour work days can get really mundane, seem really long (at times endless), and can offer more boredom than you’re wanting to ingest. Let yours go better with e-cigarettes. Sitting at your desk, doing the same thing over and over again as an ode to productivity can be so much more tolerable if you’re vaping. Chances are, your boss or company policy doesn’t permit nonstop smoke breaks, so vaping really lets you get it done pleasantly. Just make sure there isn’t a no-vapor policy!

 

How To Choose an Electronic Cigarette

Looking for an e-cigarette brand that will please you? Here are some tips to make it go easy, and hopefully help you find exactly what you’re looking for! Happy vaping!

-Research, research, research! Can’t stress that enough. If you want things to go exactly to your plans, you have to learn about the products and the industry. There are so many different models and types of e-cigarettes, try to narrow it down to what style you think will work for you.

-Look into e-cigarette starter kits. They aren’t called “starter kits” without reason; they are meant for beginners especially, as they come with all the necessities. Selection also varies from brand to brand, so learn about the different products you may be interested in. Above all, if cost is one of your deciding factors, you can always go for the most basic kits. All you really need is an e-cig battery, a charger, and a cartridge, so see what lies ahead, and what interests you.

-Prices differ dramatically across brands, so this is another benefit of research. You want to make sure you’re comfortable with what you’re paying for your products, so don’t just settle for the first brand that you come across.

-Purchase from brands that offer sample packs of their cartridges. This is an excellent option for beginners, as it allows the user to try all options before settling on one. You might not like menthol, but tobacco may be perfect. You might think vanilla sounds intriguing but you decide you’re more into menthol, get the idea?

-Read reviews. There are lots of them, and seeing what people have to say about them is important. You will come across reviews from both consumers as well as e-cigarette experts, so find out what others are experiencing.

E-Cigarettes are getting more and more popular, and if you are one of the millions of smokers who are interested in switching over to the more modern smoking alternative, learn as much as you can! Optima offers incredible e-cigarette starter kits, and just about every accessory an e-smoker could want. So good luck in your search, and hopefully you’ll find the right e-cigs for you!

Freedom, Independence, and E-Cigarettes

July 4th means celebrating, having fun, and enjoying yourself to the fullest. This year, make sure you have your e-cigs ready to go, as nothing spoils a party more than traditional smoky cigarettes. We all know  how smoky it gets from fireworks anyway, so who really needs extra? When there is a perfectly cool, totally enjoyable smoke-free nicotine option available, tobacco seems lamer than ever!

Electronic cigarettes allow you to be so much more free and mobile. They give you all the ability to smoke and have your nicotine in just about any setting. You are limited only to your own convictions and when it comes to being around others, most have no issues with vapor. In the US, people are pretty keen on celebrating the 4th of July, and most do it in all varieties of raucous fashion. Neighborhood block parties, city-wide events, family barbeques, rollicking good times with friends; one way or another, it’s one of those few annual holidays that gets people together in epic fashion. And getting together with people means that you have to be wary of your smoke, which can be tricky if you aren’t smoking electronic cigs.

E-cigs are better in public and around others. It’s pretty wonderful when you don’t have to exit the building or scene to smoke. It’s also nice that you don’t have to deal with smoking bans. You won’t be littering, making anyone (including children) uncomfortable, and you simply have to just take your e-cig out, use it, and put it right back where you had it; no lighting, no dropping ash, and no worrying about burning anyone with the cherry. E-cig cartridges are easy to change, and accessories let you get the most out of your vaping.

When you bring e-cigarettes to a party, nonsmokers will appreciate your courtesy. Other smokers will be intrigued by your daring good taste, and everyone will be happy you aren’t smoking cigarettes. Fourth of July was meant to celebrate our nation’s independence, and to celebrate the awesome freedoms we have in “the land of the free.” Exercise your right to independence and freedom and go with what gives you more of both: electronic cigarettes!
