An electronic cigarette is a type of nicotine delivery system. E-Cigarettes come in a variety of shapes and sizes and do not contain tobacco. E-Cigarettes (Vapes/Vaporizers) do not require combustion - this means there is no carbon monoxide, unlike a real cigarette.
Most electronic cigarettes are powered by a battery that heats a coil that is saturated with a liquid (e-Liquid). Most also contain computer chips that provide certain functions and information about the device and its operation as well as a variety of safety features to ensure that the product works and consistently and as safely as possible.
There are 3-4 ingredients in E-liquid (E-juice) which include vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), flavouring, and sometimes nicotine.
Research done by Public Health England showed that vaping was 95% less harmful than smoking tobacco cigarettes. While much safer than cigarettes, there are still some concerns. Most of the harm caused by cigarettes, including cancer, comes from tar as well as the many carcinogens (approximately 400 of the 600 chemicals in a cigarette) that then create up to 7000 inhalable chemicals after being combusted (lit on fire). These are not found in E-Liquid. Many of the e-liquids used in vaping devices contain nicotine. Nicotine can lead to circulation problems as well as heart disease. You can lower the risk by choosing e-liquids with less nicotine or with no nicotine at all.
The short answer is most likely NO. There are some precautions you should be aware of, however. 1) Always Store your battery in a case. Never leave your batteries lying loose in a purse or bag as they can become dented or punctured and can release their stored energy. 2) It is always safer to charge your batteries in an external charger. This limits the batteries ability to fall below its recommended safety limits and reduces the risk of venting (pushing excess energy out creating a possibility of explosion or breaking). 3) If there are any blotches or brown spots beginning to appear on the battery this is battery acid. Do not throw away these batteries in the trash, bring them into your local Vape Cove for inspection or recycle them at your nearest dump or electronic recycling location.
On average, a carton of cigarettes costs $90. If you are a pack-a-day smoker, this amounts to between $280 to $350 a month. On average with vaping, a device will cost you $50, a pack of coils and 2 bottles of juice will amount to $50-70 dollars. Most people will have this $50-$70 recurring cost every 2 weeks. Even after the initial startup cost of $50 your first month you are only spending between $150-$190 your first month saving you between $130-$200.
Electronic Cigarettes are an excellent tool for smokers to get away from nasty tobacco cigarettes. Cigarettes are known to kill 1 of 2 life-long users. If you are an adult smoker, an electronic cigarette is for you. If you do not currently smoke, you should not vape.
In light of recent events, we at Vape Cove have received this question a lot. The short answer is NO vapes do not kill people. To be more specific, currently, the media has been creating a stir about vaping related illnesses and creating false accounts for those who have been affected. The facts are that those who have been highlighted in the media were using a marijuana-based product called THC oil in their vaporizers. Recently, black market copies of THC have been circulating in which the makers use a chemical called VITAMIN-E ACETATE. This chemical is known to be extremely poisonous to the body’s tissues when inhaled. This chemical is not found in E-Juice.
The reason flavors are made as they are vital to the experience of people switching over to vaping from smoking. Think about it, people who want to change a particular behaviour are not going to want to be reminded of the habit they just left behind. Telling a new vaper that they only have tobacco to taste when they vape is like asking an alcoholic to drink beer flavoured water and expect them not to go back to the original. People want something that they can enjoy that no longer reminds them of what they were initially doing, in this case smoking cigarettes.
It really all depends on your own habits. Most people can make a 30ml bottle of E-juice last between 1-2 weeks. Factors that may affect this include: your frequency of use, the strength of nicotine, and the device you are using.
