A Condensed Electronic Cigarette Review

As promised, here’s a very quick rundown of the best e cigarette products I’ve tried over the last 12 months. Maybe it will help choose a good one from all the retailers who are out there at the moment.

Green Smoke – This is a company that’s been around for a long time in e cigarette terms and they have a reputation for two specific things:

  1. High Cost
  2. Insane Vapor Production

Both these things are true. There are certainly brands out there that will give you a starter kit at a lower cost, and with more accessories. There aren’t however many companies who offer an e cig which will produce such huge plumes of smoke when you exhale. If you put simple vaping experience before all else then you will love this one. If you are looking for best value and loads of accessories then you might be better served with something else.

V2 e cigarettes are a company which hasn’t been around as long as Green Smoke, but they are quickly becoming just as popular with smokers. They have above average vapor, great tasting carts in lots of cool flavors, and a load of funky accessories to keep you happy. The real bonus here is the price, you can pick up an e cig starter with 2 batteries, a variety of charger, portable charging pack, a nice USB cigarette, and 5 carts for about $100. A great choice for someone just getting started with electronic cigarettes.

South Beach e cigs are another popular brand. They have an interesting pricing structure which allows you to get a good deal on your starter kit if you sign up to a monthly home deliver scheme. This allows you to get up and running for just $50 for a good quality cig which has great vapor and a satisfying throat hit. The refill carts for this device are more expensive than other brands so you will have to factor that into your decision making process.

Blu cigs are a massive brand thanks to a great marketing campaign, a nice website, and competitive pricing. There cigs are cool black color with a distinctive blu light on the tip which glows when you take a draw. They don’t have the vapor production on the Green Smoke, or the lovely taste of the V2 but they are worth a look none the less.

White Cloud have been called the Rolls Royce of e cigarettes by a lot of people thanks to their exceedingly high initial purchase cost and the quality of their products. They have awesome tasting carts which consider to be the most realistic of all the brands available. The espresso flavor ones in particular are truly great. If you have money to burn then you might fancy stumping up the $240 required for the Cirrus II starter kit.

I hope this electronic cigarette review gave you an idea about which brands you should consider buying. If I try any cigs in the future which I think are worthy of your consideration then I’ll update this information to keep it up to date. Remember, sometimes it’s worth spending a little extra in the beginning to get a great quality starter kit which will last you for years. All of the products mentioned above come with a warranty which is good for at least 6 months.

NJOY e-Cigs Lands Big Investor

In what can be seen as a positive endorsement of the future of e-cigs and vaping, e-cig brand NJOY has received a major capital investment from Catterton Partners–to the tune of $20 million dollars. Catterson is a consumer focused, private equity firm. Other well known brands in the firm’s portfolio include Natures Variety Pet Food and One Natural Experience (aka O.N.E) beverages.

NJOY greeted the investment with the pronouncement that they see Catterton not merely as a source of investment, but also as a strategic partner. Catterton has a reputation of choosing only the best companies in their categories in which to invest and utilize their expertise as well as their cash to generate long term success in those companies.

NJOY is looking to Catterton’s partnership to aid in increasing their brand strength, distribution and market share. This kind of high dollar, high profile attention and cooperation is a good indication that e-cigs are here to stay and moving from a niche market into the financial mainstream.

Smart Tips for Longer E Cigarette Battery Life

While most of us have been raised to have the mindset that we should turn off or use sparingly devices that operate on battery power, this logic does not apply to e-cigarettes and their batteries.

Most state of the art e-cigs use lithium ion polymer batteries that actually rely on daily use to operate at peak efficiency. Constant use of this type of battery results in better functioning as more power flows through the cell increasing efficiency. Lithium ion batteries are already among the longest lived on the market, and keeping this simple fact in mind can extend their life further.

Another important thing to keep in mind is that just like anything else—the better care you take of an e-cig battery unit, the longer and more efficiently you can expect it to perform. Lithium ion batteries need to be kept away from sources of heat and protected against water. Impacts from dropping batteries can harm operation and impair ability to function.

Obviously batteries should never be tampered with, or wired together to amp up e-cig power. The danger of this type of modification of batteries was recently illustrated by the Florida man maimed by his “garage mod” do it yourself e-cig wannabe.

Recharging should take place when an e-cig battery charge does down to 50%, not after it has been fully drained. Maintenance in the form of disconnecting the cartridge or cartomizer from the battery when the e-cig is not in use will also promote longer battery life.

Just a few common sense tips to optimize the vaping experience

Texas Physician Goes Public with e-Cigarettes as a Healthier Alternative

Dr. Duke Carlson, a family medicine physician at the Texoma Medical Plaza in Denison Texas has recently gone public with his support of e-cigarettes as a smoking replacement device. While the FDA does not currently recognize or approve the devices as such, endorsements such as Dr. Carlson’s are a step in the right direction.

Dr. Carlson sees e-cigs as a useful means of taking the public’s addiction to tobacco apart and replacing components with less harmful alternatives. He acknowledges that not enough data is currently available for him to fully endorse e-cigs as a 100% healthy replacement for traditional tobacco cigarettes, but he does stresses that compared to the known hazards of tobacco smoking, they are a more desirable choice. By eliminating the carcinogen laden products of tobacco combustion and providing the nicotine “hit” (nicotine he notes is in itself not nearly as harmful as the smoke it is delivered in traditionally) as well as preserving the social aspects of smoking he believes that the future of e-cigs as smoking cessation devices is underrated.

Let’s hope that more doctors step forward to echo his sentiments!
