What are Electronic Cigarettes?
Electronic cigarettes (also known as e-cigarettes or personal vaporizers) are an alternative to tobacco cigarettes. They are battery-operated devices that create an inhalable, water-based mist instead of smoke. The rechargeable battery powers a heating element called an "atomizer." The element uses low heat to turn liquid in the cartridge, which contains propylene glycol, glycerin, food flavoring and nicotine/non-nicotine, into a fog-like mist. Propylene glycol is used for several reasons. First, it allows nicotine to be dissolved within it and is bactericidal. Secondly and perhaps most importantly, when vaporized, it creates a visible, white smoke-like vapor that provides the user a feeling of actually smoking a tobacco cigarette product.
However, there are important differences. First, the electronic cigarette’s vaporization process produces a liquid vapor – not smoke. In other words, vapor is composed of tiny liquid (water and propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin molecules) that behave like smoke but are not actual smoke.
By contrast, tobacco cigarettes are burned and the smoke tobacco cigarettes produce is composed of both a very hot, dangerous gas (carbon monoxide, also found in automobile exhaust) as well as solid materials (e.g. ash and tar). The “ash” from tobacco cigarette smoke is caused by the incomplete combustion or burning of the cigarette paper (a highly-chemically treated wood product) and the tobacco leaf.
Can e-cigarettes help me quit smoking?
There is a lot of anecdotal evidence and even some scientific research surveys that strongly indicate that e-cigarettes are an effective alternative to smoking. Surveys show that up to 80% of e-cigarette users quit smoking traditional cigarettes while using e-cigarettes.
However, while some users have gradually reduced the nicotine levels down to zero, the majority of e-cigarette users treat the devices as an alternate source of nicotine and not as a nicotine cessation program. So there is not as much scientific evidence yet that show how effective e-cigarettes are when used to treat or cure nicotine addiction. Yet, anecdotal reports by users who have used e-cigarettes as a way to wean from nicotine also indicates they seem to be very effective way to break smoking triggers and dramatically reduce nicotine levels.
The good news is, nicotine by itself has very low health risks, so switching to e-cigarettes can be nearly as good as quitting altogether. The most important thing for those who cannot or will not quit nicotine to do is to stop the exposure to the harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke and e-cigarettes can help them do it.
Can I smoke my Electronic Cigarette in places where smoking is prohibited?
Electronic Cigarettes is not a traditional cigarette and does not burn tobacco, so it can be smoked in restaurants, planes and offices and other places where normal smoking bans are in effect..Electronic Cigarettes do not contain tobacco and are not lit; therefore, they are not included in a Smoking Ban. Products only produce water vapor making them ideal to smoke at many indoor and outdoor locations.

What are the ingredients in E-liquid?
E-liquid contains only a few ingredients. Propylene Glycol or PG based liquids contain mostly propylene glycol, which produces the vapor emitted by the electronic cigarette and it is the carrier of the nicotine, another ingredient in E-liquid (if you choose a liquid with nicotine). Propylene glycol is considered generally safe for human consumption by the FDA “Food and Drug Administration”, and is an ingredient in many food items that we eat. It is also found in shampoos, soaps, and medicines. E-liquid also contains water and artificial flavorings. In rare cases, allergies to PG have been reported, so E-liquids are also sold that do not contain it. They use vegetable glycerin, or VG, which is a plant based substance. VG is used in many products that moisturize and clean the skin and is made from coconut or palm oil. In rare instances, people report allergies to PG and may use VG based E-liquid as an alternative. E-liquid also contains some natural extracts from tobacco in small amounts and natural flavorings.
E-liquid contains nicotine. Is it safe?
The use of the electronic cigarette is not intended for those who don't already smoke traditional cigarettes. That being said, your cigarette already contains nicotine. While nicotine is an addictive substance, it is non-carcinogenic. It does not cause cancer. In fact, some studies have indicated that nicotine actually has some health benefits, such as reducing the risk of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. It is many other chemicals in cigarettes that cause cancer. Besides the nicotine, e-liquid contains ingredients that are considered generally safe for human consumption by the FDA. However, if you are sensitive to nicotine, or have conditions that are aggravated by the use of nicotine, for example, strokes, heart attacks, pregnancy, etc., you should not use any nicotine product. You should consult your doctor before using products that contain nicotine.
How many times can I refill my e-cigs cartridges?
Atomizers/Cartomizers can be refilled from 300 times depending on several factors including voltage, vaping style and type of e-juice. Refill as soon as the vapor amount is reduced or the flavor starts to change. To maintain your cartridges, don’t let them dry out. Dry cartridges can burn and ruin the taste. It is not recommended to re-use a cartridge once it has a “burnt” taste.
Which nicotine level should you get if you smoke?

• Strong (2.4%) 24mg – Compare to a strong cigarette
• Full (1.8%) 18mg – Compare to a full flavored cigarette.
• Light (1.2%) 12mg – Compare to a light cigarette
• Ultra Light (.6%) 6mg – Compare to an ultra light cigarette.
• Zero (0%) – Same great taste - with zero nicotine.

If you want to enjoy the great flavor of our electronic cigarettes without any nicotine, try our zero nicotine level, which is available in all of our flavors.
