No! Vaping offers an alternative to smoking and is not intended as a quit smoking aid, we don't advertise our products as such either. However, by making the switch to e-cigarettes you are choosing an excellent alternative and will find that they have many other benefits too:
There are many types of e-cigarette on the market today, however they all have the same aim. To simulate the experience of smoking but without any burning or smoke. E-liquid is passed onto an atomiser, the atomiser is then heated by the battery and in turn the e-liquid is turned into a flavoured vapour. This is inhaled through the mouthpiece. Most E-liquids contain nicotine although some are available with zero nicotine too.
We have estimated users can save up to £2000 a year depending on your personal usage.
The main ingredients of e-liquid are propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerine (VG) both of which are used in a wide variety of everyday food products. Flavouring, purified water and nicotine are added, at varying strengths. Our E-Liquids are tested to the highest standards and our bottles are CHIP compliant. If you need advice regarding the nicotine strengths please contact us before you order. As a general guide, 3mg=Very Low, 6mg=Low, 12mg=Medium, 18mg=Medium-Strong, 20mg=Strong.
Nicotine is an addictive stimulant, similar to caffeine, and is not known to cause cancer. Although Nicotine carries other possible health risks, without the tobacco smoke it is a relatively low risk.
It’s not smoke that is released, it's vapour which is mixed with the nicotine contained within the e-liquid of the e-cigarette. The vapour gives a sensation very similar to a real cigarette. Some interesting facts about the contents contained in the vapour can be found here.
When you inhale and no flavour or vapour comes out then the atomiser needs to be changed. On average an atomiser will last approximately 1-3 weeks of normal use depending on the amount you vape and how hard you draw. To get more out of your atomiser keep your liquid topped up to avoid dry burning.
In theory there are currently no legislative bans on vaping in public. However, it is always advisable to ask for permission first. Unlike normal cigarettes, e-cigarettes do not contain any of the harmful substances. No actual smoke is produced by an e-cigarette, just vapour therefore, you can use e-cigarettes even in places that have banned smoking!
An eGo battery has a floating centre pin which can sometimes be pushed down. This can happen if you screw tank on too tight. Not all atomisers/tanks are made the same and if tightened too much will push the centre pin of the battery down. This then stops the battery from connecting properly with the atomiser and therefore will not work properly. This issue can be fixed fairly quickly and easily.
