Portability of E-Cigarettes Improved with New Charging Case

Lexington, KY (PRWEB) April 12, 2012

Electronic cigarettes have made great strides in easing the switch from smoking to “vaping” (using an e-cigarette). But still, many users find it difficult to replace the pack and lighter with batteries, chargers, cartridges, a stock of e-liquids and more. Ecig Advanced, a news and reviews website for electronic cigarettes, has reported on a new product that aims to cut down on the space e-cigarettes will take up in customers pockets and purses.

According to the report, a new ultra-slim charging case from Stog.com called the “Stasher” employs a much more compact design than other cases. These cases are meant to hold the electronic cigarette and all of its components for easy transport and use. A representative from Stog.com is quoted in the report on the intentions of the product:

“The Stasher was designed to give smokers a low maintenance way to transition to ‘vaping’. We wanted a case about the size of a cellphone that would safely store a fully assembled Stog Classic, extra filters, and also charge a spare [battery].

Our Stasher gives smokers the same portability and convenience they?re used to with their tobacco cigarettes. Smokers may now save money on tobacco tax and eliminate countless chemicals resulting from combustion; it’s all about making a bad habit less intrusive on your day to day life.”

According to Ecig Advanced reviewer Kevin Burke, the Stasher does allow users of e-cigarettes to carry everything they need inside of the ultra-slim pack:

“The big news is that the Stasher has the same features as the best [portable cases] with just about half the width. While we’ve seen other slimline [cases] in the past. This is the first we’ve seen that allows space for charging, an assembled e-cig and extra cartomizers.”

Some may be concerned that, as is often the case, a smaller, more visually appealing design makes for a product with lessened performance. But for the Stasher, this doesn’t appear to be the case, Ecig Advanced writes:

“The decrease in size doesn’t seem to have affected its usefulness either, as the Stasher will charge a Stog battery 3-4 times before running out of juice. The pack also has a quality feel, with a soft-touch finish and a sturdiness that has been lacking in other slimline cases we’ve reviewed.”

According to ECig Advanced, Stog will have the fresh-design case available as part of the Classic Stasher Kit ($ 94.50) which includes everything one needs to get started with e-cigarettes.

CIGOTINE Celebrates Federal Ruling Allowing Import and Distribution of E-Cigarettes

Providence, RI (PRWEB) January 20, 2010

Recently, Judge Richard J. Leon of Federal District Court in Washington issued a preliminary injunction in a lawsuit brought by two distributors of e-cigarettes. In the ruling, Judge Leon stated that e-cigarettes must be classified and regulated by the FDA in the same manner as tobacco cigarettes, and not as drug delivery devices. Therefore, any bans limiting the import and distribution of electronic smoking devices have been lifted.

?This case appears to be yet another example of FDA?s aggressive efforts to regulate recreational tobacco products as drugs or devices,? Judge Leon wrote.

With the passage of landmark tobacco legislation last year, he added, the FDA?s new tobacco division will be able to regulate the contents and marketing of e-cigarettes in the same way it will regulate traditional tobacco products. But the agency?s drug division cannot ban the devices, the judge ruled.

While this is a victory for users of alternative smoking devices, the FDA will likely continue to attempt to limit users? rights by classifying e-cigarettes as tobacco devices, despite the products lack of tobacco or tobacco-based chemicals.

This decision comes less than a month after the New Jersey senate approved a bill by a 38-0 vote, restricting the sale and use of electronic cigarettes, and expanding the “smoking” definition to include e-cigarettes. This was based on recent misinformation presented to the media by the FDA in regards to electronic smoking devices.

Cigotine is designed to provide users a convenient, satisfying smoking alternative in places where smoking is normally not permitted. Its design and manner of use, while reminiscent of traditional tobacco cigarettes, is functionally different on many levels, and does not produce the smoke, odor or negative societal effects of tobacco smoking.

Alternative nicotine delivery devices have no products of combustion and none of the toxins found in cigarette tobacco. On the basis of currently available research data, these products should be seen as similar to pharmaceutical nicotine products, as they offer a risk of smoking-related illness well under 1% of the risks faced by traditional tobacco smokers.

Cigotine, LLC does not promote the use of its products as a measure in which to quit smoking. However, the company believes that the FDA must fulfill its duty to provide accurate information to the public. By simply informing smokers that they could possibly reduce their risk of tobacco-related illness by switching to alternative nicotine delivery products, the FDA could benefit the 8 million current cigarette smokers who will likely face a tobacco-related illness over the next 20 years.

Cigotine, LLC urges e-cigarette users to support the amendment of the FDA/Tobacco bill to encourage the development and marketing of safer alternatives to cigarettes, under strict but fair FDA oversight, and with marketing restrictions in place to reduce the numbers of adolescents who initiate use of cigarettes and other nicotine delivery products.

Rush Limbaugh Touts Benefits of E-Cigarettes, Slams FDA

Kailua, HI (PRWEB) August 25, 2010

Conservative radio host and political commentator Rush Limbaugh spoke about the benefits of e-cigarettes while pointing out the bullying tactics of the FDA, Big Pharma and Big Tobacco on his August 25 radio show.

After being spotted recently on his ditto-cam apparently smoking, Rush responded last week to his listeners that he was in fact using a Volcano e-cigarette, not smoking a tobacco cigarette. On today’s show, he said that the Aug 25 Wall Street Journal article was an example of how he is on the cutting edge, and how his mention of a new technology immediately brings all sorts of attention to it. Holding up his e-cigarette, he said,

?This happens to be one from Volcano, in Hawaii… they’re made up of three parts, an atomizer,

ElectroNic Brand E-Cigarettes Let Smokers Say Yes to Enjoyment Without Tobacco, Ash, or Fear of Being Shunned

Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) September 26, 2010

The new-to-market ElectroNic e-cigarette device provides a satisfying smoking experience without tobacco, for people who enjoy nicotine, but hate the problems associated with traditional cigarettes. ?Tobacco smoke produces fine particulate matter which is the most dangerous element of air pollution for smokers and non-smokers,? reports ElectroNic spokesperson Jason Meritt. He points to a controlled experiment conducted by the National Cancer Institute, in Milan, Italy which found that the air pollution emitted by cigarettes is 10 times greater than diesel car exhaust.

?But the ElectroNic e-cigarette creates no ash, and the user exhales a mist rather than smoke, so it can be enjoyed anywhere, even when smoking is banned,? he observes.

A Realistic Smoking Experience

ElectroNic?s patented electronic cigarette design produces more vapor than traditional e-cigarettes giving the user a more realistic smoking experience. ?A standard ElectroNic e-cigarette has about the same amount of nicotine as a Marlboro Light cigarette, but without the tar, flame, carbon monoxide, smoke, carcinogens, and other dangerous chemicals that are associated with tobacco-burning cigarettes,? says Meritt.

ElectroNic adds to the authenticity of the smoking experience with an LED light on the front of the electronic cigarettes that lights up when the user draws. ?This is purely for aesthetics,? explains Meritt. ?These LEDs appear to be red hot while puffing, but are always cool to the touch and never a fire hazard.

Cleaning Up a ?Dirty? Habit

Beyond health issues, much of the controversy regarding cigarettes revolves around the smoke, ash, and smell that traditional tobacco-based products produce. The same particles in smoke that cling to the lungs also cover surfaces, stain walls and linger in the air.

The vapor produced by ElectroNic, however, is smokeless. It dissipates after being exhaled and does not leave the lingering odor of tobacco in its wake. This eliminates the need to worry about a smoky smell clinging to clothes and hair after a smoke break, and even prevents the pungent ?smoker?s breath? associated with tobacco use.

Per-Pack Price of Tobacco Gone Wild

In an effort to tax cigarette smokers out of their habit as well as generate revenue during hard economic times, 47 U.S. states have increased their cigarette tax rates more than 100 times in less than a decade. ?In 2010, the average cost of a pack of cigarettes is around $ 5, including taxes, depending on where you live,? reports Meritt, quoting a story in the New York Times. ?But in New York City, for example, which puts the highest combined state-local tax burden on smokers, the cost of a pack is now close to $ 11, a $ 2 rise from just over a year ago.?

These skyrocketing costs can also be countered with ElectroNic e-cigarettes which are priced at about 75% of their tobacco-based equivalent. ?The ElectroNic cigarette cartridge is, in the vast majority of cases, the equivalent of a pack and a half of paper cigarettes in smoking time,? says Meritt. ?That makes ElectroNic an affordable option for smokers looking for the best electronic cigarettes, a healthy solution to nicotine cravings and an alternative to the high price of tobacco.?

Best E-cigarettes Reviews and Rankings at Top 5 Electronic Cigarettes

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 07, 2011

A new web site, http://www.Top5ElectronicCigarettes.com is creating controversy in the nascent e-cigarette industry with its unbiased reviews of twenty leading electronic cigarette brands. The good, the bad, and the ugly are all revealed in a no-nonsense manner that sets the site apart from its competitors. However, this approach has not been well received by a number of e-cigarette companies that have rescinded their affiliate agreements with the site and in some cases, threatened legal action.

“The truth is that e-cigarette review sites exist because affiliate programs pay a commission for referrals,” said Mr. Chris Shaw, an editor with Top 5. He continued, “Unfortunately, the system rewards positively-biased reviews, because affiliates earn a commission only if a referred visitor makes a purchase. This is explains why the vast majority of electronic cigarette reviews extoll the virtues a brand while glossing over any negative aspects. We believe this approach to be both harmful to the industry and a disservice to consumers.

“Top5ElectronicCigarettes.com is also an affiliate site, but we decided at its inception that our unique differentiating factor would be providing shoppers with brutally honest reviews and allowing the chips to fall where they may. Although negative reviews and poor rankings have angered a number of the major e-cigarette brands, we believe our lack of bias to be the predominant reason for the popularity of our site with consumers.”

He continued, “It’s almost laughable that some of the worst tasting and poorest performing electronic cigarette brands regularly receive stellar reviews owing to the strength of their marketing efforts and affiliate programs. If we?ve learned anything at Top 5, it is that in the world of e-cigarettes, high prices are not necessarily indicative of high quality, as some of the lowest priced brands have proven to be amongst the best performing.”

Mr. Shaw added, “We order and pay for starter kits the same way a consumer would. We do not request review samples. This allows us to produce truly unbiased reviews and further sets us apart from our competition. We are not and never will be sponsored by or beholden to any particular brand.”

Ersatz reviews and review sites have become so prevalent (and problematic) that a group of researchers at Cornell University recently published a paper that explores the possibilities of programmatically detecting fake reviews. Encouragingly, their algorithm?s initial success rate was approximately 90%. Google, Amazon, and TripAdvisor have all expressed interest in the project. However, until the use of such algorithms becomes widespread, consumers must continue to abide by the age old adage, “let the buyer beware.”

About Top 5 Electronic Cigarettes

Founded by a dedicated group of reformed ex-smokers, Top5ElectronicCigarettes.com publishes unbiased reviews that provide consumers with the pros and cons of the best e-cigarettes of 2011. The site presently features twenty reviews with rankings based on eight determining factors: price, value, taste, quality, ease of use, vapor volume, maintenance costs, and purchase satisfaction. Brands are evaluated for these criteria and then graded on a 0-100 scale for each. The editors? scores are averaged and rounded off to the nearest quarter percentage point. Additionally, brands are assigned star rankings on a zero-to-ten scale. To date the highest total score has been 96% with the top ranking electronic cigarette earning nine out of a possible ten stars.

Worker Productivity Increased as Businesses Allow Use of E-cigarettes

Northbrook, IL (PRWEB) July 26, 2011

A recent consumer survey conducted by Vapor4Life, an electronic cigarette company, found workplaces that allowed employees to use an electronic cigarette saw an increase in employee productivity and improved customer service markers across a variety of industries.

The poll sampled ?vapers,? or e-cigarette users, and asked participants about the difference in work productivity when the use of e-cigarettes was permitted in the office. By simply allowing its staff to use an e-cigarette at their desks, smokers who used an e-cigarette as a smoking alternative reported being more calm and focused, while also spending more time on the job due to decreased smoking breaks.

According to Vapor4Life CEO, Steve Milin, ?vaping? has become a change in lifestyle for many smokers. ?People face restrictions and limitations when they smoke cigarettes. It dictates where they eat, who they socialize with, and of course impacts their job. Vaping doesn?t share any of the attributes that restrict smoking. There’s no flame, none of that nasty smell that gets into your hair and clothes, and no second hand smoke.?

With the notable differences between regular cigarettes and e-cigarettes, Milin foresees ?vaping? becoming the norm in workplaces. ?Businesses who welcome vaping in the office have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Employees have one less distraction from their work, there?s fewer butts to sweep up and fewer accidental fire alarms from someone choosing to smoke in the restroom.?
