Smokeless Selects Responds to Big Tobacco?s 135 Million Dollar Buyout of Blu Electronic Cigarettes

Temecula, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2012

The long awaited involvement of big tobacco in the electronic cigarette industry indicates the future of smokeless Tobacco alternatives. ?Major E Cig companies like Smokeless Selects have been waiting for Big Tobacco?s next move. This will help push lower grade E Cigarette manufacturers out of the market improving the overall standards in the industry. We have been eager to see how the Tobacco industry will respond to our smokeless innovation. Members of Smokeless Selects see the Blu buyout as a symbol of triumph over the continuing battle against Big Tobacco,? reports Jason Golec ? Managing Member. The Buyout by Lorillard, the third largest manufacturer of Tobacco Cigarettes, is the first action taken by a Big Tobacco company that indicates interest rather than distaste for the electronic cigarette.

Historically, Big Tobacco has always taken a different approach to Electronic Cigarettes and the product?s ever-growing market share. ?Big Tobacco lobbyists have been heavily involved in persuading congress and the FDA to shut down the E-Cig industry all together,? said Jason Golec. Attempts to do so have been focused on health issues and poor manufacturing standards that were typical of E Cig companies during the earlier phases of Electronic Cigarette production between the 2008-2010 time periods. Big Tobacco has also gone after Electronic Cigarette manufacturers directly to curb the increasing market share. ?Even Smokeless Selects, a top ten rated U.S. E-cig company, has received notification from big Tobacco stating their intent to take legal action on product packaging in order to reduce competition,? Eddie Quiroz reports.

While Big Tobacco’s approach to control market share has changed, one fact is clear. Electronic Cigarettes pose a serious threat to the Tobacco industry. ?The Electronic Cigarette is cheaper, doesn’t emit harmful smoke and can be enjoyed almost anywhere without limitations. Even more exciting, the product poses no risks to surrounding people and is more environmentally friendly. The product truly is a miracle device when compared to Tobacco Cigarettes. I am surprised that it took this long for big Tobacco to make their claim on an industry that?s taking over and we welcome it,? concludes Jason Golec.

Device that Exploded in Man?s Mouth NOT an Electronic Cigarette

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) February 28, 2012

Many have heard the story reported by ABC News about the tragedy in Florida concerning the electronic cigarette that exploded. According to Puffweb.com, the device that exploded in Tom Holloway?s mouth was actually in fact NOT an electronic cigarette, it was an electric cigar.

Most of the media reports coming out refer to this device as an electronic cigarette. According to Fire Chief Butch Parker that was on the scene (from an MSNBC news report), the device was large and cigar shaped. According to Dan Henry, head editor of the popular electronic cigarette review website Puffweb.com, “This indicates that the device is clearly an Electric Cigar, which is much different than an electronic cigarette. The news media is not clarifying the difference between the two.”

Furthermore, Chief Butch Parker reported finding several 3.0 volt CR123A type batteries charging in the room along with a scorched battery case that appeared to be one for a cigar-sized device. This information suggests the device he was using may have been a “Mod?, a device that has been intentionally modified by a third party company and outside the specs of industry standard safety and quality control. V2 Cigs also released a statement on their blog concerning this incident and the dangers of using Mods.

“First of all, the major electronic cigarette companies like V2 and Green Smoke, do not make electronic cigars. Most electronic cigars are made by foreign companies or diverse manufacturers that are not recognized in the electronic cigarette industry,” says Dan Henry.

Dan Henry also said, ?I don?t include Electric Cigar Reviews or Mods Reviews on my website because I don?t recognize them as being in the same industry as Electronic Cigarettes. They are dangerous and I do not recommend they be sold or used.?

U.S. based Electronic Cigarette companies have been producing E-cigs for years with no incidents or injuries. “Based on what the Fire Chief had to say, the device that exploded was most likely a Mod, and not made by a reputable company. Mod?s are add-ons to existing devices and can result in fire or explosions, and are notorious for doing so. Some of these devices are even made by individuals, not companies, which do not have the means to test for safety like major manufactures,” according to Dan.

?So what have we learned here?? says Dan Henry. ?Not only was the device not an electronic cigarette, but we are now receiving information that it was a triple stack battery Mod! This should raise awareness on the dangers of modifying electronics that you put in your mouth! Electronic Cigarettes have a flawless record of safety and it?s important to recognize that this incident is not a representation of the safety of electronic cigarettes. It should also be a wakeup call to those that like to tinker with such devices that can cause injury.?

Nicolites Electronic Cigarettes Announce Recycling Scheme

(PRWEB UK) 6 February 2012

In January 2007, The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) was introduced into UK law by the Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment Regulations 2006. The WEEE Directive aimed to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage everyone to reuse, recycle and recover it. As a part of this, all retailers, manufacturers and suppliers were prompted to introduce mechanisms to allow consumers to return or recycle their unwanted electrical goods.

Nicolites has gone one step further. Kyla Jarrett, Head of Operations at Nicolites, explains:

“We have offered a service whereby consumers can return unwanted or faulty electronic cigarettes or electric cigarette accessories since day one, but we feel that more should be done to ensure our customers are aware of this and more importantly that it doesn’t inconvenience them to do so. Therefore we now offer to send any customer who wishes to return their e cigarette a pre-paid envelope in which they can send back their parts”.

It is hoped that by introducing this initiative, they can increase the numbers of people that use this service.

Birju Pujara, Sales Director at Nicolites mentioned, “We currently also offer a full lifetime warranty on all of our electrical parts and request all customers to send any faulty parts back to us for a direct replacement. This not only highlights our aftercare service but also assists us in reducing the number of any electrical waste being wrongly disposed of”.

Currently Nicolites are the only electronic cigarette company in the UK offering a lifetime warranty.

Nicolites, established in 2007 is one of the largest electronic cigarettes brands available today with thousands of stocking retailers; this company has grown from a start-up in to a multi-million pound company with international distribution networks.
