Along with the Poldiac, Atmomixani's Nemesis leads the way for mechanical mods utilizing silver-plated contacts. There's a reason why this mod constantly sells out everywhere it's stocked.
Two researchers presented yesterday what may very well wind up one of the most important resources to date against the argument that electronic cigarettes are a gateway to teen smoking.
Recap of Vapetoberfest at the Long Beach Convention Center.
Here in the states, we awoke to big news this morning from our neighbors across the pond. Today, Members of European Parliament voted on several revisions to the Tobacco Products Directive. Among them was a vote on whether or not to classify e-cigarettes as medicinal products, restricting sales to pharmacies for products with a nicotine concentration over 4%, or 4 mg/ml.
Day 2 of the Electronic Cigarette Convention in Anaheim featured a workshop on e-cig regulations and e-liquid safety by Azim Chowdhury, Lou Ritter and Linc Williams from AEMSA.
Recap of the 2013 Electronic Cigarette Convention in Anaheim, CA, presented by West Coast Vapers Club.
20 of the most commonly heard anti e-cig arguments rebutted by scientists, researchers, and advocates including Dr. Michael Siegel, Dr. Carl V. Phillips, Dr. Farsalinos, Dr. Ross, Chris Price, James Dunworth, Gregory Conley, Paul Bergen, Kristin Noll-Marsh, and Oliver Kershaw.
Do you think e-cigs pose a risk to bystanders? Studies have shown that the vapor of e-cigarettes is less harmful than the air you inhale on a regular basis.
From their medical definitions alone, it's pretty obvious that smoking and vaporizing are not the same thing. Electronic cigarettes were designed as a safer alternative to traditional tobacco smoking.
While it may be true that e-cigs contain trace amounts of said metals, they are still in compliance with federal safety standards and should therefore cause no alarm to health officials or the general public.
Flavored electronic cigarettes appeal to and are targeted toward adults. Just because we age does not mean we lose interest in the delectables of life. Flavored e-cigs undoubtedly taste better than tar-filled tobacco smoke and are a sincere attempt to keep health conscious smokers from falling off the vapor wagon.
Most of us are now well-versed with the 2009 FDA study that found a small amount (1%) of diethylene glycol, a toxic ingredient in anti-freeze, in 1 out of 18 cartridges from just two brands of electronic cigarettes. Not one study since then has found the chemical in any cartridges or liquids, suggesting that the device in question may have been contaminated.
CDC lies about kids using electronic cigarettes. How can e-cigs be gateways to smoking the real thing?
E-liquid typically consists of four main ingredients: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine and flavoring. What isn't exactly clear is what constituents make up the vapor e-cigs produce.
Rechargeable batteries based on lithium-ion technology are what power many of our electronic devices, not just e-cigarettes. And because of the nature of their chemistry, lithium batteries all possess inherent risks.
In the event that a bystander would pass through the vapor, since it doesn't contain the irritating toxins of tobacco smoke, it would likely be barely detectable beyond the faint scent of the flavor and only for a fleeting moment.
Only about 3-7% of smokers who try going cold turkey actually end up quitting smoking. E-cigarettes have much higher success rates.
Researchers in Greece seem to have a thing for testing airway resistance. Two Greek studies published last year found that use of electronic cigarettes increased airway resistance in smokers without COPD or asthma.
The UVO System Origin by Korean modder Footoon is a highly underrated mechanical mod due to it's 21mm diameter and complex brass switch. However, the mod itself is extremely well manufactured and hits like a bullet train. The Origin mod currently is available in two finishes, stainless steel and brass, both brushed, and parts can be mixed and matched to your heart's desire. So how does it stack up to other high end mechanical mods?
The Astro by Kato is an elegantly designed, hard-hitting mechanical mod. It is the smallest telescoping mech on the market and can handle both button and flat top 18350, 18500 and 18650 batteries with ease. And thanks to a floating center top pin, you won't have to worry about those grotesque gaps between your mod and whatever 510 threaded atomizer you chose to use with it.
