Four Celebrities That Vape

Movie stars and celebrities have long been trend-setters in American culture—and with the advent of the internet (and perhaps because of more diligence on the part of the paparazzi), they are able to influence trends and behaviors all around the world. In this sense, we can be extremely glad that photos have begun surfacing of A-list celebrities that have been bettering their lives by making the switch to e-cigarettes and vaporizers over analogue cigarettes.

Celebrities That Vape


Leonardo DiCaprio 

Leo Di-o has smoked on screen before, but has been sighted using e-cigarettes as recently as a couple of months ago. One of the earlier more famous photos of him vaporizing included him on a bicycle—from a distance he actually looked like he was biking and smoking an analogue.

Katherine Heigl 

Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl was first publicly shown vaping on David Letterman’s primetime national television show in 2010. As a smoker since the age of 25, she claimed that she had tried gum, cold-turkey, and prescription solutions for cessation, but ultimately landed on e-cigarettes.

Josh Harris 

Phil Harris, Josh Harris, and Jake Anderson became well-known in television-viewing households after the success of their Discovery Channel program, “The Deadliest Catch”. Phil passed away in 2010 due to stroke incited by consistent smoking. Since then, Josh Harris has begun promoting e-cigarettes as a cessation tool to help others avoid the same

Johnny Depp 

While we’ll admit that Johnny Depp has not been confirmed to have actually switched to electronic cigarettes (he is a long-time smoker of analogues), he was the first actor in Hollywood’s history to vape on the silver screen. In his film “The Tourist” featuring Angelina Jolie, he explains:

 “…it’s not a real cigarette – it’s electronic. It delivers the same amount of nicotine but the smoke is water vapor. Yeah, watch [puffs on the e-cig, taps it into hand to show there is no flame, before tucking it into his jacket pocket.]”

Electronic Cigarettes vs. Portable Vaporizers

electronic cigarettes vs portable vaporizers
With the constantly expanding market of electronic cigarettes in full swing, a new debate has taken shape. With the popularity of electronic cigarettes, many are wondering which is best, portable vaporizers or electronic cigarettes.

Although these two products are highly synonymous and often interchangeable, they are different.

Portable Vaporizers

These are portable but not nearly as small as an electronic cigarette.  One of the strongest point for using the portable vaporizer is the fact that it doesn’t cycle in the way an electronic cigarette does. Cycling is when the electronic cigarette goes through the process of vaporizing the liquid nicotine. Fast smokers will often smoke at a pace faster than the electronic cigarette can cycle. This can be frustrating.

Using a portable vaporizer provides a larger variety of flavors. They have been around much longer than electronic cigarettes.

Another thing that many people like about portable vaporizers is that they vaporize oil or dry herbs including tobacco, instead of using liquid nicotine like electronic cigarettes.

One of the downsides to portable vaporizers is that the better ones are not as portable.

Electronic Cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes are treated more like traditional cigarettes, although they function, in many ways, like the portable vaporizers. The primary difference between electronic cigarettes is the fact that electronic cigarettes use liquid nicotine instead oils and dry herbs and portable vaporizers have a larger variety of flavors.  Will the disparity between these two methods as far as flavors are concerned,  diminish as the popularity of the electronic cigarette increases and the industry grows in correlation with its popularity?   We'll soon find out.

The truth is there is very little difference. Which method of vaporization you choose is more left to personal preference than anything else. Is the explosion of the electronic cigarette market an indicator that e-cigs will be the most popular method of vaporization by 2017?   Only time will tell.

5 E-Cigarette Ads From Best to Worst

Cigarettes haven't been marketed well since the Mad Men days of advertising. Now with e-cigarettes, advertising has a whole new potential. Below are the 5 best e-cigarette ads, ranked from worst to best:

e-cigarette ads

5. Stephen Dorf - Blu

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZishwAt_RM
With a badass like Stephen Dorf, you think someone could have written a better hook than "C'mon guys, rise from the ashes." Why not ride on the message, "We are all adults here" and re-brand smoking as a responsible, personal choice? Sadly, this ad's potential was ruined with one, corny catchphrase.

4. "Take Back Your Freedom" With Blu

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pxuBgfbid0
Quick and simple - that's what you can say about Blu's ad. The benefits are highlighted well here: the smoker has complete control over the habit. Unfortunately, nothing is memorable, which is exactly what you do not want when showing an advertisement.

3. "Re-Writing The Rules" - Fin Electronic Cigarettes

http://www.ispot.tv/ad/7nbj/fin-electronic-cigarettes-rewriting-the-rules
This ad does a great job of appealing to younger smokers. The line "There was a time when no one was offended by it; that time has come again." says it all, capturing a lifestyle where smoking can be cool again. However, the idea of resurrecting a generation of cool young smokers is a bit ambitious and possibly delusional.

2. Courtney Love - NJoy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SFs761eEFk
The stuffy and uptight party host in this commercial personifies the smoker's worst enemy: the person who admonishes a complete stranger for their habit, in public. Courtney Love, the queen of I-Do-What-I-Want, is the hero here and stands up for smokers everywhere. And that's all that smokers really want, is to retain their pride and not be embarrassed by personal choices, which this ad delivers very effectively.

1. The New Marlboro Man

http://www.adweek.com/files/persp-hey-man-got-light-01-2013.jpg
What better way to create an e-cigarette ad than to look to the past? Here, the Marlboro Man has been modernized while still capturing the classic look from the old advertisements. This ad created more than a campaign; it created an archetype.

E-cigarettes are still relatively new, but we're sure to see more interesting ads in the future. Be sure to visit our blog regularly as these ads roll out.

Why are Electronic Cigarettes so Popular?

Electronic cigarette smoking has not completely replaced traditional smoking but it surely is on its way to do so.

An electronic cigarette also known as a PV (Personal Vaporizer) is an electronic inhaler that vaporizes a liquid solution. The device does not involve any smoke and it therefore brings up the debate of second hand smoke.



E-cigarettes are rapidly becoming one of the most demanding products on the market in the U.S. More and more companies are investing in this industry as many people are opting for E-cigarettes. One of the major benefits that companies are claiming is that you can smoke almost anywhere as e-cigarettes do not emit smoke, they produce a vapor.

Electronic cigarette companies are booming and the business has been able to capture ten percent to fourteen percent of the smoking industry.

E-cigarettes come in many different and attractive designs making them more compelling to the end user. Also many celebrities today are opting for e-cigarettes bringing even more attention to the product. After seeing the popularity of e-cigarettes many well-renowned tobacco companies are planning to enter the business and their advantage over other e-cig companies is yet to be determined.

So it seems that the business as well as the competition is going to increase in this industry. However staying at the forefront of the market is the The eCiggy,  providing their customers with some of the best service and quality e-cigs on the market.

Will Electronic Cigarettes be Classified as Medication

electronic cigarettes classified as medicine
The word is by 2016, electronic cigarettes as well as products consisting of nicotine will be classified as well as licensed as medication.

Under proposals to strengthen regulation, electronic cigarettes are to be categorized as medicines.

But, the manufacturers of e-cigs say that they will not accept this classification unless compelled to do so by EU law. 

The e-cigarettes deliver an experience that is same as standard cigarettes. By heating liquid nicotine in a disposable cartridge and generating a vapor, e-cigs provide a superior feeling.

In the UK, there is no sign of a ban on e-cigs even though France is considering a ban on using e-cigarettes in public areas. The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency in Britain has recently stated that it would regulate products like these to make sure that they are safe. Britain has been putting stress for an EU-wide law on regulating products that contain nicotine. It expects the adoption of legislation in 2014 and to go into effect in Britain in 2016. The agency has stated that it will need manufacturers to reveal info on quality of product and how they stand in juxtaposition with those manufactured by competitors.

Given the newness of the product, there is a lot of speculation and talk about the legality of electronic cigarettes. So classifying the product as a medicine is bound to raise many question marks in the minds of manufacturers and legal experts.

All that can be done right now is observing how everything pans out. There are a wide range of benefits that make e-cigarettes a great choice for smokers.

Points to Keep in Mind When Choosing Your Electronic Cigarettes

Here are a few pointers that you should keep in mind when choosing your electronic cigarettes:  

 
Electronic Cigarettes

Check the Amperage 

A key factor that you must take into consideration when purchasing an e-cig battery is its amperage. The highest attainable amperage is 1300mAh and the least is 180mAh. Batteries with high amperage can withstand for longer periods of time while the ones with low amperage run for short periods of time. So you should opt for a battery with high amperage in order to lower the frequency of charging it.

Look at Compatibility

Not all battery models are compatible with e-cigarette cartridges and atomizers. In any case, you should buy a battery that is compatible with your atomizer as well as cartridge. It is better that you carry the battery that you are currently using and buy the correct one.

Means to Charge the Battery 

It is pivotal to be aware of the battery’s charge ability. Nowadays, a large number of people like to charge their electronic cigarettes while they are traveling. If you also do that, then it is best to opt for 12 DC charging and other back-ups. These allow you to charge the battery through your car charger socket or even your laptop.

Warranty is Important

Like any other electronic device, e-cig batteries are susceptible to breakdown. Because of this, you must ensure to get maximum return on your money by getting hold of a battery that has been protected under manufacturer’s warranty. Batteries without warranties might seem luring because of the low cost but their functionality is equally deadpan.

Maintenance

While buying a high quality product is definitely important, it is also equally crucial to preserve it afterwards. That is why you should work toward maintaining your battery and in turn avail superb benefits. Be sure to let the e-cig battery cool down after approximately 7 puffs and keep it away from magnetic items.

If you wish to get the most from your electronic cigarette, then it is absolutely essential for you to keep the aforementioned points in mind.

electronic cigarettes

The electronic cigarette broken down

 An e-cig is made up of a 2 or 3-piece design comprising of the:
  • Atomizer
  • Cartridge
  • Battery

The electronic cigarette cartridge is the disposable mouthpiece containing the liquid flavor that burns and gets converted into vapor. 

The electronic cigarette atomizer is the second part, which burns the liquid flavor using a heating coil. The liquid is then converted into vapor or mist and enjoyed by the smoker. 

The electronic cigarette battery powers the device.

Once all the liquid inside the cartridge evaporates, the container can be refilled with more or fully replaced with a new cartridge with the flavor you wish. 

Most of the e-cig brands promote them as healthy smoking alternatives as these are free from tobacco and thus, from the many health effects that come with traditional smoking.  E-cigs come in different nicotine strengths- ranging from high, medium and low. Those who are willing to quit can go from higher levels to the lower ones until they reach the zero nicotine stage.

Users have many choices when it comes to electronic cigarette refill flavors:

  • Others
The flavor you choose largely depends on your personal tastes and preferences. For the hard core smokers there are tobacco flavored cartridges which mimic the taste of tobacco found in traditional cigarette brands like Marlboro, Camel and Parliament. So, if you are addicted to that particular tobacco flavor, a tobacco e-cig cartridge is the ideal choice for you.

Electronic Cigarettes in Public Places


Should electronic cigarettes be allowed in public places?
Should e-cigs be allowed in Public Places?
The increasing popularity of e cigarettes has led to a rise in questions concerning public acceptance of electronic cigarettes. 
For example, will smokeless cigarettes be allowed inside non-smoking areas? 
Questions like this can be convincingly answered but first it is imperative that the consumer out there gets comprehensive info and training about the way in which electronic cigarettes work. Once a sense of safety (with regards to e-cigs) is established in the minds of the user, the public perception will truly change.
Electronic cigarettes make use of an electronic system that is rather intricate. 
  1. The smoker inhales the smoke as he/she would a traditional cigarette.
  2. As the user draws air via the chamber, a liquid present in the cartridge is heated to generate a vapor that is drawn into the smoker’s lungs. Because of this, smoking e-cigs is also known as vaping. 
  3. The warm vapor renders a familiar sensation (felt when smoking traditional cigs) to the smoker and the vapor is thereafter exhaled like a normal cigarette. 
Basically, smokeless cigarettes are almost exactly like tobacco-filled cigarettes minus all the chemicals.
In the recent times, a number of reports of e cigarette users being thrown out of bars and restaurants (where smoking is not allowed) have come to light. And each time such an incident has been happening, their response is that they are not smoking a cigarette. When non-smokers are confronted with the facts associated with the non-harmful nature of e-cigs, they use weak reasoning’s to defend their actions.
Even though quite a few different kinds of liquids are used in many models, one of the most extensively used liquid is propylene glycol. 
This liquid has for long been considered safe for human consumption by the FDA
The problem lies in the lack of enough data to support the safety of inhaling the vapor. It is imperative for major e-cigarettemanufacturers like V2 Cigs and others to sit with the people at the FDA and find a category to fit electronic cigarettes. 
Until that time, you can buy your favorite e-cigs from a renowned supplier and kick your habit of smoking traditional cigarettes. The eCiggy is one such e-supplier of electronic cigarettes that is known for providing high quality products at discounted prices.  For more information on electronic cigarettes contact The eCiggy

3 Myths About Electronic Cigarettes Destroyed


Electronic Cigarette Myths
For people who are looking to quit smoking, smokeless cigarettes have been a superb option. But overtime, a list of myths has surrounded this option. Let’s take a look at three myths that hover around electronic cigarettes.

Myth #1: Fruit flavored smokeless cigarettes are used to lure young people.


Going by this rationale, the many healthcare companies manufacturing and marketing flavored cough drops would have shut down by now. So it is wrong to target electronic cigarette companies for marketing to a young crowd just because they use fruity flavoring. Flavoring is used only to improve the taste of the e-cigarette. In other words, it is an incorrect assumption made by people who are up in arms against electronic cigarettes.

Myth #2: Smokeless cigarette companies market deliberately to non-smokers.


In a majority of the cases, a consumer who is buying a smokeless cigarette is opting for this solution so as to steer clear of his/her habit of smoking tobacco-filled cigs. The fact is non-smokers are averse to the whole concept of smoking and the harm caused in the process, so they wouldn’t touch any type of stick, smokeless or otherwise. Basically, smokeless cigs are meant to help traditional smokers stop their bad habit.

Myth #3: E-cigarettes are filled with dangerous side effects.


Like any other new product, even smokeless cigarettes can cause a number of side effects in the beginning.
