Labor Day E-Cigarette DealsIt’s weird how some holidays don’t inspire any kinds of vapor deals, while others just pop them out all over the place…

For example, Labor Day (happy laborless celebration!) comes out as the most re-touted in terms of electronic cigarette deals and specials, more even than the 4th of July (from my informal review of E-cig company Facebook pages)!

So right now, of the two big indy e-cigarette companies, you have Apollo E-Cigs offering 30% off everything, site-wide, until Tuesday, the day after Labor Day.

Cool deal!. Then there’s V2 E-Cigarettes, and they’re offering the same deal but only until Monday (though no doubt they will extend it), as well as a sweet 15% off their V2 Pro Series – the exception to their store-wide deal.

So celebrate work by… not working (? !) and profit from these great e-cig deals. We’ll be back to the politics next week (oh my…)

 

Vape Is Officially A Word In The Oxford Dictionary

Oxford Makes Vape Official WordIt might seem like a small deal, but it’s a good deal nonetheless.

Oxford Dictionaries has officially made “vape” a word in the English language.

As a victory in the nicotine wars, recognizing “vape” is just one more step in a positive direction of “normalizing” (to use a term of the anti-e-cig brigades) the act of inhaling vapor (or “vapour” as the English spell it) from an electronic cigarette (“or similar device“).

Here’s the entry from the Dictionary:

vape
Pronunciation: /veɪp/
verb
Inhale and exhale the vapour produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device

I know, it’s silly, but so exciting! On top of it, the Dictionary adds example sentences after our own hearts (think normalizing again!):

[NO OBJECT]
I’d rather people vaped indoors than smoked outside
[WITH OBJECT]:
many smokers have started vaping e-cigarettes to help them cut down
(as noun vaping) there’s concern that young people may take up vaping as a less harmful alternative to smoking

And there are a bunch of other example sentences in the entry, plus definition of the noun as a derivative, which doesn’t take an anglophile to find tremendous!

WhiteCloud ClearDraw E-Liquid Flavors

New WhiteCloud E-LiquidsFor vapers who worry about where their e-liquid comes from, WhiteCloud Electronic Cigarettes can assure you all of theirs are produced and packaged in the USA and made to standards.

That goes double for the latest in their ClearDraw2 series of cartridges, “Bora Bora”, which is at the “exotic” end of the range of their 20 other flavors of vapor, starting with good ol’ Regular Tobacco taste.

What’s neat though is their ClearDraw2 cartridges, which aren’t packed with filler and have a window in the side so you can not only see the liquid swishing around but how much you have left.

This and the fact that they pushed the coil to the center of the cartridge reduces any chance of overheating, getting a burnt taste and even the “hot lips” phenomenom.

Truly, they have juiced up the e-cig cartridge… (heh).

Vitaminized Vapor In Electronic Cigarettes

Vitaminized Vapor?Could electronic cigarettes be, on top of safer than tobacco, a better way to take vitamins?

Could one combine nicotine intake with supplemental nutrients?

Although the logic is sound, much of the vitamin industry is based on scare-mongering, much like the anti-vapor crowd, who seem to be against e-cigs whether they have nicotine or not.

So could actual, healthy vapor be a good thing?

Well, some people do need to take supplements, but not so many unless their diet or medical condition requires it. Otherwise, just eat well… no?

The anti-vapists always kvetch about what “could” be in ecigarettes (but isn’t) as though it isn’t all inhaled from the atmosphere anyhow…

But what could aerosolized calcium do to the lungs? And who knows about other vitamins and nutrients…?

The other thing to consider is what about non-smokers & non-vapers, getting their vita-boost via vapor… wouldn’t that be a gateway…?

We just don’t know do we?

JetBlue Fire Blamed On E-Cigarette Without Proof

Boston Airport Blames E-Cig For FireSeems whenever there’s a rise in positive news and recommendations for electronic cigarettes (doctors signing joint letters to government against bans, communities voting against tobacco-style prohibitions, editorials, etc.), new “threats” suddenly emerge for e-cigs.

So now it’s batteries catching fire in airplane luggage compartments.

Recently, a baggage handler noticed smoke coming from a suitcase in the hold of a flight embarking from Boston’s Logan.

It was promptly put out and though presumeably an investigation is not yet complete, the Massachussetts Port Authority has automatically blamed an e-cigarette battery.

However, expert investigators of the Department of Fire Services have declared a cause can’t be established yet.

Media reports have consistently stated a personal vaporizer battery was the cause, or alternately “seemed” the cause. But without reason, justification or explanation.

There have been rechargeable-lithium battery fires in the past, with things as varied as iPhones and Tesla cars… but has anyone suggested we ban mobile devices from planes or Teslas from the roads?

Now, airport officials are calling for government to classify e-cigs as “hazardous”, while the Department of Transportation is not even going to think about it.

The main reason seems to be the TSA considers electronic cigarettes “personal items”… so there’s only one lesson to be taken here.

Bring your e-cigs and batteries with you or in your carry-on, and for the love of vapor don’t bring mods that look like grenades!

Vapor Vultures Starting To Circle

Vapor Vultures CirclingIf you haven’t seen them haunting hospital halls or on television, you’ve seen their predatory ads and billboards.

Ambulance chasers.

What they do is also known as barratry, and is illegal in the US.

But being the legally creative creatures they are, they’ve  gotten around restrictions. Hence, ads and billboards…

But now, they’re going after vapers. Really.

Because of all the anti-vapor propaganda, which they either believe is true or hope will be, they’re pre-emptively launching sites and ad-campaigns soliciting accounts of the ill effects of personal vaporizers.

One of the biggest “nationwide” law firms (nope, won’t give’em free publicity) recently created an “E-Cig Registry” asking people to “report serious health issues they suspect were caused by exposure to E Cigarettes”, and then list a litany of inanity including nicotine poisoning (bad parenting), heart attacks, strokes and even “Burns from E Cigarette explosions” (mix&matching chargers).

Really.

What’s actually quite interesting about all this is, particularly with the aforementioned “nationwide” firm, it’s a reiteration of a site launched by the Food & Drug Administration back in January.

The FDA’s “safety reporting portal”, even more detailed in so-called electronic cigarettes incidents, was announced in an email, which got NATO interested.

Not the North Atlantic Treaty Organization - the National Association of Tobacco Outlets. But they had good points, and basically asked: Why is the FDA requesting reports on a matter “the agency has not yet exercised regulatory authority over…?”

Considering the rampant war on vapor and the money the government stands to lose if Big Tobacco defaults on payments, this is a very good question…

Ignorance Works In Favor of E-Cigarettes For Now…

Nixon and E-Cigs: all about the MoneyAlthough it might seem like good news, it probably won’t be.

The short-sighted and obviously misinformed Missouri governor Jay Nixon actually vetoed a bill which would have prohibited sales of e-cigarettes to minors.

Unfortunately, he claimed the bill wasn’t enough because it exempted electronic cigarettes from being restricted and taxed the same as tobacco sticks.

Then came the kicker: he explained that not treating e-cigarettes the same as regular smokes is “letting tobacco companies off the hook with special loopholes” and is a threat to the people of his state…

So until he can tax personal vaporizers the same as the dark weed, children can buy e-cigs, and vapor is still legal (or not illegal) in Missouri.

Nixon seems to be waiting on either a new bill to overtax smokeless nicotine or the FDA to make up his mind for him…

It’s all about the money…

RJ Reynolds Buys Lorillard But Sells Blu E-Cigs

Reynolds Buys Lorillard Sells BluBig Tobacco buying into ecigs could be crazy for the “real” smaller electronic cigarette companies, which established and grew on the migration of analog tobacco users away from corporations to the vapor-based nicotine market.

But now it turns out that having bought Lorillard, R.J. Reynolds has decided to sell Blu E-Cigarettes, which Lorillard bought last year and marketed heavily.

The reason Reynolds chose to “divest” itself of the #1 E-Cig on the North American market? Apparently the Federal Trade Commission started looking into whether or not the acquisition was legal.

Being half or more of a duopoly in the American tobacco market was apparently worrisome, so the Big R kicked the Blu Ball to Imperial.

At any rate, rather than buy into the market, Reynolds had already chosen to introduce its own VUSE e-cigarette, which it already did in some test markets in North America, and appears to have been satisfied with the results.

So now that Imperial has bought Blu, it remains to be seen how everyone’s fortunes will fare…

Evoke The Next Generation Of Vaping

The Evoke - Funky & Futuristic VapeA few weeks ago, there was a TechCrunch piece about “The Evoke” – a new type of personal vaporizer that works on a completely different principle than regular electronic cigarettes.

And it looks so cool, too.

But one couldn’t buy it… ya see, it’s an IndieGoGo crowd-funded effort for production, though it seems prototypes have been made. And they are funky.

As a sidenote, this product is not to be mistaken with the EvokeSmoke Company’s products. “The Evoke” is made (and will be produced and distributed) by the LotoLabs company.

What makes it different is that the heating system is non-direct. It’s vapor created by induction – so there’s no direct contact between wick and coil because the “coil” or heating element is the wick, heated by induction, which means less wear and tear and replacement work.

But the thing that turns us on the most about it is the design… they say it’s made of wood, advanced design, yadda yadda, but really it looks a lot like the Type 1 phaser from Star Trek – the one you could just pull off the main hand weapon for whatever reason.

It’s a geek thing…

 

Apollo’s All-Nighter Vape Juice… With Caffeine

Vape Nicotine and Caffeine with Apollo!And no that headline isn’t talking about a puffing with your morning cuppa java…

In fact, it might be better to skip the coffee if you’re vaping this juice.

Apollo Electronic Cigarettes created this “bull-themed” energy-drink-flavored, tart yet bold e-liquid apparently to keep alert and maintain stamina as a “limited release” used primarily at trade shows.

However it’s instant popularity drove the company to include it in their “specialty flavors” line-up.

Now apparently it’s hard to get a satisfactory dose of caffeine out of vapor, so we’re not quite sure how Apollo is doing it. If it’s the one-tenth equivalent of a cup of coffee, then its effectiveness is related directly to how much you vape.

So you might wanna fill up that travel mug, if you’re a casual/light vaper.

If you get the jitters, switch to herbal tea…
