FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Here are the Answers to some of the most Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q. How do e-cigarettes work?
The basic components of an e-cigarette are the battery, an atomizer and a cartridge or tank. “Vaping” E-juice is added to the cartridge or tank. Models vary, but the concept is the same; when activated, the battery sends an electronic charge to the atomizer, which heats the liquid to produce a satisfying vapor that simulates smoking.

 

Q. What are the benefits of using e-cigarettes?
• e-cigarettes are allowed in most public places where smoking is banned.
• Satisfies like a cigarette, but without tobacco, tar, smoke or known harmful chemicals – so you don’t have to “quit” a habit you enjoy!
• No second hand smoke for those you care about (and for those who just drive you crazy about it!)
• No bad smell on you, your clothes, your hair or in your car and home.
• Costs substantially less than cigarettes; re-chargeable, long battery life.
• Liquids come in a variety of flavors to suit your tastes and moods.
• No ashtray, no messy ashes and burns on clothes or furniture.

 

Q. Are e-cigarettes classified as a smoking cessation product?
Currently, E-Vaped only promotes e-cigarettes as an alternative to smoking. There are, however, many individuals who have successfully quit cigarettes after failing with “approved” smoking cessation products and methods!

 

Q. Is “vaping” healthier than cigarette smoking?
e-Cigarettes and E-Juice are relatively new, and became popular in the U.S. during the last decade. The short and long term effects are still being tested by the FDA. However, there is no tobacco, tar, smoke, or any known cancer-causing chemicals in e-cigs vapor, and 4000 fewer chemicals than in cigarettes! Cigarettes are KNOWN killers!

 

Q. What are the costs?
The initial investment in our quality vaporizer set from plus E-Juice flavors is about the cost of 1 carton of cigarettes. Thereafter, the cost to maintain your new vaping lifestyle normally averages about 1/4th of the cost of cigarettes.

 

Q. What are the consumables, or what will I need to buy going forward?   
Going forward, you will need to replace the atty (coil/wick) and e-liquid about once a week depending on how much you vape.

 

Q. What’s in the E-Juice? 
Fresh liquids made with USP-Grade ingredients: Propylene Glycol (PG) – an ingredient in asthma inhalers, Vegetable Glycerin (VG) – an ingredient in food products, pharmacy grade nicotine, and food grade flavorings. We will only sell e-Liquids that are manufactured in the USA per USP, GRAS and CMP guidlines.  Rest assured knowing when you purchase our E-Juice from E-Vaped your VG and PG are 100% USP Food grade kosher and your nicotine is 99.9% pure pharmaceutical grade.  These ingredients are carefully hand manufactured by experienced mixologist All of our Vapor liquid ingredients are manufactured right here in the USA; not in China!

Q. How do the PG and VG produce the vapor and feeling of smoking?
PG gives you a slight harshness at the back of the throat, or a “Throat Hit”, to replicate the cigarette smoking experience and contains most of the flavor. VG provides clouds of vapor that simulates cigarette smoke. The combination gives a most pleasurable vaping experience.

Q. Can I step down my nicotine levels?
Sure! We offer nicotine levels in the following amounts:
24, 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 & 0 mgs/ml so you can slowly reduce your level all the way down to 0.

Q. I am not getting the vapor volume I expected; what’s wrong?
Although vaping an Electronic Cigarette simulates smoking a tobacco cigarette with the hand/mouth/inhaling actions, there are important differences in the technique that you will easily become accustomed to when vaping an e-cig. There are two slightly different techniques incorporated by most seasoned vapers: 1. try taking a slower draw lasting from 3-5 seconds, holding the vapor in your mouth and then inhaling when the draw is completed, or 2. try taking a short “primer puff”, to heat the atomizer, followed by a longer, slower draw. You will quickly become acclimatized to your e-cig and develop your own technique and style! You can use a variable voltage/wattage device to turn up the heat and create more vapor. 

If you'd like a more massive amount of vapor, try a mod setup.  A mod will give you the most vapor available.

 

Q. How do I store my e-liquids?
Store your e-liquids in a cool, dark place that is OUT OF REACH of children, and AWAY from pets!
Do not expose e-liquids to excessive heat or prolonged sunlight. Liquids may be stored in the refrigerator – in a place furthest from the freezer. Wine coolers are perfect for storing e-liquids! The color may darken with time; however this will not affect the taste. The shelf-life of nicotine liquids is 6-9 months from purchase date.

 

Q. How long does each battery last between charges?
Most batteries are constructed using the latest lithium ion technology and typically should last for 1-3 days before requiring a full recharge depending on the Mah size of the battery and usage.

 

Q. Referring to the battery, what is mAh and why is it so important?
mAh (milliampere-hour) is a unit of electrical charge in batteries. Simply put, the higher the number, the longer you can enjoy vaping between charges

 

LEAKS AND / OR BURNED TASTE:
These are the 2 most common problems experienced with e-cigarettes. There are many causes and remedies, ranging from cleanliness of the unit to individual vaping (smoking) habits.
Primarily: Too much liquid accumulating in the atomizer (more than can be vaporized with each puff) = LEAK or NO VAPE

For LEAKS:
NEVER vape until the cartridge is empty: this can cause leaks or burned taste. Turn e-cig upside down if you’ve been using it all day. When you see about 1/4th inch of liquid remaining in the cartridge, it’s time to refill. Disassemble, clean all connections, and “blow-out” your clearomizer. Follow the “Cleaning and Care of Equipment” instructions above. Refill cartridge ensuring a tight fit of the end-cap, and then re-assemble your e-cig.

     FOR BURNT TASTE:
Tilt the e-cig unit to re-wet the 2 wicks near the top of the Clearomizer. If the tank is lower than a quater full, refilling usually fixes the problem. Take slower, longer puffs. If this does not work, it’s time for a new Clearomizer.

Less Vapor
One of the tell tale signs that it’s time for me to change a cartomizer is when the amount of vapor gets significantly less. When taking a drag, you will notice that you need to suck much harder to get any vapor out of the carto.
However, another cause of reduced vapor production can also be due to a dying battery, so I recommend you swap or recharge your batteries beforehand, just to make sure

 

Q. What is PG and/or VG?
The liquid used in electronic cigarettes, often called E-Liquid, is usually a base mixture of Propylene Glycol (PG) and/or Vegetable Glycerin (VG) with flavoring and/or nicotine added according to preference.  As the vapor is inhaled by the user they are able to both taste the flavoring and absorb the nicotine that is diluted in the E-liquid, if any.
Both PG and VG are considered GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA and EPA.  They are common ingredients found in many of the foods we eat, cosmetics we use, medications we take, and common household items such as toothpaste, mouthwash, and soap. They are also used in the fog machines used in theaters and night clubs.
PG is a very thin liquid that dilutes and carries flavors very well, making it the optimal base for mixing, but when thinned out even further by the addition of flavoring and nicotine it may produce less vapor.  Also, a very small percentage of the population experiences a sensitivity to PG that may present itself in a number of ways from throat irritation to skin irritation.  However, most people with this sensitivity are still able to use liquids that contain a lower amount of PG without any negative effects.
VG is a slightly sweet and very thick liquid in its pure form, which results in much higher vapor production than PG.  However, the downside to this thickness is that it may cause wicking, clogging, or burning issues in some devices if the VG concentration in the liquid is too high.  Also, due to the inherent sweetness of VG it tends to alter or dull the flavor slightly and reduce the amount of throat hit experienced by the user

Q. What are the effects of nicotine?

Nicotine increases blood pressure and heart rate in humans. Nicotine can also induce potentially atherogenic genes in human coronary artery endothelial cells. Micro-vascular injury can result through its action on nicotine acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs). A study on rats showed that nicotine exposure abolishes the beneficial and protective effects of estrogen on the hippo-campus, an estrogen-sensitive region of the brain involved in memory formation and retention.
