Enjoying Autumn with E-Cigs

autumnIn a vote for favorite seasons, there are an incredible amount of people who go crazy over autumn. There is just something about the weather cooling to the perfect level of crisp, the majestic view of leaves turning color, and the shorter days that make the nights longer. With all this sensory overload, when it comes to vaping, autumn is the perfect season to really indulge in your vapor.

Enjoying Nights Out

Summer nights get a lot of hype, but things get really interesting come autumn. The cooler temperatures, the briskness in the air, the energy of all the holidays, it’s way more fun to have a stroll and just get out and enjoy life during the autumn. Vaping takes the pleasure up because you can actually enjoy smoking, and not bother anyone when you’re mingling. Big plus: many restaurants and bars have no problems with patrons using e-cigarettes!

Enjoying Daytime Activities

Autumn is such a great time to be out enjoying the great outdoors. It can get really sweaty during the summer, and winter can be seriously limiting. You get the insanely gorgeous vistas of the leaves, and the perfectly temperate weather makes any outdoor activity just better. Hitting farmers markets, parks, mountain biking, hiking… whatever you’re up, you never have to leave your e-cig behind.

Savoring the Hearty Meals of the Season

With the holidays approaching, and fall seemingly all about eating some great hearty food, nothing compliments an awesome meal quite like an e-smoke afterwards. Compliment your palate with e-cigarette flavors like Vanilla, Menthol, or Classic Tobacco.

Autumn is one of those seasons that really gets your senses going, and there really is no better way to enjoy it all than with your e-cigs. Take them anywhere, use them everywhere, they are perfect for making the most out of every situation! They sure do it a whole lot better than cigarettes could!

E-Cigs: Use them Anywhere?

112919_most_people_smoking_electronic_cigarettes_in_one_place-300x177When it’s said that electronic cigarettes can be used anywhere, can this really be done? For the most part, yes, actually. Unless there are specific bans, and specific rules that say they are not to be used somewhere, the amount of public places where you can vape far exceeds places you are able to smoke traditional cigarettes.

Some banned places are obvious, like on airplanes, where there are tight restrictions on many types of electronic products, but otherwise you’ve got enormous freedoms that were never possible with tobacco.

At Work

Unlike cigarettes, which haven’t been allowed in the workplace in at least 30 years, many employers are totally cool with employees vaping as they work. It boosts productivity for smokers who are likely to be taking too many breaks. Vaping doesn’t have the negative consequences for those nearby like cigarette smoke, and they have no smell so they do not bother anyone. Smokers can cost employers more money than nonsmokers, so in many cases they are happy to accept electronic smoking into the picture because of their many benefits to their employees who would otherwise be a liability by smoking tobacco.

At Restaurants and Bars

Keeping customers happy usually means more sales in the hospitality industry, and e-cigarettes allow smokers to smoke and nonsmokers to be happy in restaurants and bars. Restaurant owners have found that allowing customers the ability to vape as they please keeps them in the location longer, which comes out to more sales. They also cause no drama with nonsmokers, making e-cigs perfect for social settings.

In Public Transportation

In metropolitan areas, millions of people rely on public transportation to conveniently get around, even though it comes with it’s own variety of stresses. If you lit up a cigarette on a public bus, you’d definitely raise some eyebrows, and most likely get asked to stop. Vaping with e-cigarettes on the other hand, will not be an issue most of the time because no one will smell the vapor, nor breathe in any second hand smoke, making them the better option if you want to pass time more smoothly while commuting.

Freedom to do as you please is a great thing, especially when you don’t make anyone uncomfortable. If you spend any amount of time outside of your home, e-cigarettes are the better choice for enjoying your nicotine: however you like, whenever you like, wherever you like!

 

 

How E-Cig Parts Work Together

header_img_banner_how_it_worksE-cigarette parts are very interesting. Through technology, a little bit of power and e-liquid, traditional cigarettes are simulated and the result is a feeling extraordinarily similar. So how do e-cig parts work together to make the magic happen? Here’s a look at each crucial part, and what it does to make this experience possible!

The Battery

This is the main part of the e-cigarette. It is the body, as well as the main source of power. Within the sleek aluminum shell is a powerful lithium ion battery cell. The battery can come in different sizes, with different features such as the crystal end tip, and vary in looks from one brand to another, but you simply cannot vape without one. The battery gets charged with different chargers and adapters, and the cartridges connect to it to make it work.

The Cartridge

The cartridges are disposable; when they exhaust all their liquid and no longer produce vapor, they get thrown away. Cartridges are fitted with built-in atomizers, which are known to have short life-spans. A fresh atomizer in each cartridge ensures excellent performance.

The Atomizer

The Atomizer, located within the cartridge, is responsible for heating the e-liquid and vaporizing it into vapor.

The Operating Mode Sensor

When the user takes a puff, the sensor automatically detects it, and sends a signal to the smart chip, which then signals the battery to send a charge of power to the atomizer to activate and do it’s job.

The Microcomputer Smart Chip

The Microcomputer Smart Chip is in control of the heat and the light of the e-cig.

Crystal LED Tip

More than just an attractive touch, the light at the end of the battery indicates when the e-cigarette is in use, lighting up when the user drags on the mouthpiece. It also flashes to alert you to when charging is needed.

Pretty interesting stuff, right? As you puff on yours, it’s amazing to consider the amount of technology behind all that flavor and pleasure! Just another reason electronic cigarettes are the new way to smoke!

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.

  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.

  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.

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!

Vaping, It’s like Stress Free Smoking!

Smoking is often a habit people pick up to help deal with the many stresses life throws at us, however the habit itself can get quite stressful. There are endless bans against it, there are limits as to where you can smoke in most public places, many college campuses even prohibit them outright. Then there are the social implications, which may not be like the ones regarding public use, though annoying your friends and family members is never cool. An easy way around all of these obstacles is to ditch the smoke and go for vapor.

There are plenty of reasons vapor makes so much more sense, and most importantly is that they are much more people-friendly.

Odorless vapor means no one will be complaining about how bad it smells since you started fuming up the place. You can use them practically anywhere you want, without creating a stink (literally and figuratively)! Electronic cigarettes contain no tobacco, therefore there is no second hand smoke, ash, or tar. Tobacco is a plant, it gets dried and then placed into the papers for smoking. Smoke gets created because it’s a burning substance, and tobacco gives off tons of fumes, which do not smell good. People concerned about their health generally are aghast over second hand smoke, and want nothing to do with it. Some will go so far as to make a scene about your lack of consideration!

You don’t have to be self-conscious or concerned over things like ash trays and making sure your ash and butts end up in them. When you vape, all you need to do is take out your e-cigarette, puff on it till you’re satisfied, and then put it back where it belongs. When the e-cig cartridge finishes, you change it. Simple, stress free smoking!

Stress is the number one cause of all disease and illness, reduce some of it by eliminating tobacco. Bet you never thought of all the ways it was causing you stress! Keep calm and vape on, people!
