This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of ecigsopedia.com. All opinions are 100% mine.
Everyone has heard of e-cigarettes by now. This article is not for telling you whether I like them or not. This article is about a company that tests e-cigarettes and give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about whether you want to use them or not.
There is so much advertising out in our world for e-cigarettes and it is hard to tell which ones are “safe” and which ones are not much different than regular cigarettes. We need someplace that tells us the honest truth and not just their message.
Something I want everyone to know is I do not want anyone, especially young people, to start using any smoking, vaping, etc materials at all. I know I cannot tell everyone what to do so I want you to have the information you need readily available and to use this material to education yourself with accurate information before deciding to use these items.
Ecigsopedia has a lot of useful information. You will receive an unbiased opinion about most of the major brands. Ecigsopedia.com is very easy to find clear, objective info on e-cigarettes and vaping and is uncluttered by advertisements. Their information is great for newbies or veteran users. Visit the ecigsopedia website to learn about e-cigs and vaping, and find info on the best e-cigarette brands and their products in one place.
They have so much information on ecigsopedia. Want to see when and how e-cigs started? Would you have guessed that they were started way back in 1963? The year I was born, 51 year ago. Herbert A. Gilbert was not able to sell his product because the hazards with smoking regular cigarettes were not known at the time.
Then in 2003 they came back in China. A pharmacist invented a device very close to what Herbert A Gilbert had patented in 1963, four decades earlier. His father died from lung cancer and he wanted to save others this horrible sickness.
What about when they started selling them in the United States? The e-cigarette did not arrive in the United States until 2007. They became popular quickly because people had learned about the dangers of smoking regular cigarettes.
In 2008, Health New Zealand did a study that further endorsed the e-cigarette as a safer alternative to tobacco smoking. Other studies have pointed to the benefit of the e-cigarette compared to the regular cigarette with tobacco.
In 2009 the United States, Australia, and Canada all banned the e-cigarette with the idea that they should be registered formally before companies could sell them. E-cigarette companies quickly retaliated and formed Electronic Cigarette Association to make certain that any laws that were made regarding the e-cigarette were just and honest. Furthermore, Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association came into existence to promote users to switch to e-cigarettes as a safer alternative to tobacco-enriched cigarettes.
Electronic cigarettes are battery operated devices that mimic smoking a regular cigarette. You smoke them the same way by puffing, inhaling, and exhaling, except it does not contain tobacco so it is safety for the smoker and the environment.
What are the key parts to an e-cig? There are 4 parts to e-cigarettes, LED light indicator, a vaporizing chamber, a battery, and an e-liquid cartridge. The battery powered atomizer heats a mixture of nicotine and flavor juice from inside the e-liquid cartridge. This turns the liquid into a vapor that the user inhales.
Why should you switch from cigarettes to e-cigs! Fire from a tobacco cigarette is the number one cause of fire related deaths in the United States. Smoking tobacco cigarettes make you stink, ask any non-smoker. The vapor in the e-cigarette does not have a smell, so no more putting cologne or perfume to try to cover up the smell.
One e-cigarette cartridge lasts about as long as a pack of tobacco cigarettes. E-cigarettes are tax-free, sorry Uncle Sam! On average you will save up to 50% using an e-cigarette as compared to it’s tobacco counterpart.
As you can imagine the health effects alone are a huge reason to switch to the e-cigarette. Regular cigarettes can cause health problems in the lungs, heart, and even bones. Also your complexion is different when smoking regular cigarettes. You will look better if you switch to e-cigarettes.
You will no longer have to go out in the cold weather to smoke. You will not bother people that are around you because they cannot smell anything.
Tobacco cigarette smokers believe that smoking makes them calmer and relaxes them. E-cigarettes can do the same thing without damaging your health and wallet.
Do e-cigs save you money? Or cost you more? What about costs in the future? Are they going to get you hooked and then increase their prices? E-cigarettes cost about 1/3 of what tobacco cigarettes cost. So yes they will save you money. In the future the prices should decrease as there are more brands on the market and companies find easier and cheaper ways to produce the different parts of an e-cigarette. You can also refill the e-juice cartridges to reduce your even further.
Will this help you quit traditional cigarettes? Switching can be hard at the beginning. That is due to your habits and the taste and smell that you are use to getting with tobacco cigarettes. It still takes some will power to be successful. Once you get use to how the e-cigarette works and feels, you can be successful.
How to switch to get the best results and not go back to cigarettes? There are online forums that discuss different e-cigarettes and different flavor. You should be able to find something similar to your tobacco cigarette flavor. Be patient. Your body is use to having the dangerous chemicals from tobacco cigarettes, so give your body time to stop craving the addictive nature of the harmful tobacco chemicals. There are disposable e-cigarettes for someone who is not quit sure and wants to try the e-cigarettes. The disposable e-cigarette is cheaper.
What are the true costs involved with e-cigarettes? How long does each e-cig last? Annual costs of the e-cigarettes to regular cigarettes. A single disposable e-cigarette costs anywhere from $6 to $15depending on brand and if it is a disposable e-cigarette. Rechargeable e-cigarette starter kits start at $40 and go up to $250. The atomizer can be replaced for $20 – $30 and the battery replacement can range from $20 to $45.
The e-liquids are about $10 per 10 ounces. If you get the e-cigarette contains a cartomizer these are about $13 to replace.
A single disposable e-cigarette contains the equivalent to approximately 24 cigarettes.
A rechargeable e-cigarette will need the atomizer replaced every 2 months and the battery replaced every 4 to 6 months.
On ecigsopedia.com they explain how at 1 pack of tobacco cigarettes cost $1825 ($5/pk/day x 365). Compared to disposable e-cigarettes $1095 ($6/e-cig x 365 days/2(lasts 2 days)). And to the recharageable e-cigarette $840 (see site for breakdown). So there is a lot to save each year with the disposable e-cigarette.
According to ecigsopedia.com you could save up to 54%.
