The e cig market is rather a young market however it is a globally recognised one with retailers all over the world selling e cigarettes, e pipes, e liquids and accessories to a growing number of customers.
As with any “new” thing there are always myths and untruths associated with it and so this guest post is all about debunking the e smoking myths and answering common questions.
How Reliable are the Electronic Cigarettes?
As with all devices e cigarettes have a shelf-life and how long that is depends on the type of e cig and how heavily it is used. It is important to buy from a reputable retailer and to check what warranty is available before purchasing.
The e cigarette technologies were first brought to market in China in 2006 and have developed significantly in that time. While many hope to see further advancements finding batteries and e cigarettes lasting over six months before needing replacements the industry isn’t quite there yet. Fortunately with a range of kits available, special offers and more running your e cigarette should still work out cheaper than tobacco smoking,
Do You Have to Use a Specific Brand of E Liquid
Not at all, it doesn’t make any difference what brand you use, except perhaps on taste. E liquid is placed in the chamber of the e cigarette and it is this that is heated up via the battery and turned into the flavoured vapour that is inhaled and exhaled. As the e liquid is used to refill the chamber it doesn’t matter what brand is used.
Is it Illegal to Smoke an E Cigarette Indoors
While it is not yet against the law to smoke an e cigarette in a public place such as a restaurant or a pub the landlord or owner has every right to ask you not to. The general consensus is that if you do want to smoke an e cig when out and about that taking it outdoors is the more sociable decision.
How Long Will a Battery Last Between Charges
This depends entirely on the type of battery, how frequently it is used and how old it is. Expect to have to charge your battery daily, much the same as you would your smartphone.
Are E Cigarettes Safer than Tobacco Cigarettes
While there have been no definitive studies done to prove or disprove the fact that e cigs are better for health than tobacco ones it is likely that they are (retailers just can’t claim they are without proof). With e cigarettes you may choose your nicotine level, even choosing no-nicotine e liquids and you don’t inhale any of the chemicals or tar commonly found in conventional cigarettes.
It is perhaps worth noting however that there is a lot of talk about e cigarettes being available on the NHS from 2016 to be used as a cessation device. Time with tell whether this actually takes place however if it is being considered many will assume that the NHS believe there is some merit to e cigs being the healthier option.
