John Madden

John has been using e-cigarettes for almost 2 years, although he admits he wasn't completely satisfied with his experience with them in the beginning. Since then he has been on a quest to find the "perfect vape" while trying out hundreds of combinations of e-cigarettes, mods and atomizers with countless local and online vendors at his disposal. Because he feels e-cigs have the potential to be a public health miracle, John is also active in their research and promotion as a safer alternative to tobacco cigarettes.
