What is an e-cigarette?
Electronic cigarette (e-cigarette, e-cig, personal vapourizer) is an electronic device which mimics and is widely used alternative to smoking of a traditional cigarette. Clearomizer which receives energy from a rechargeable battery, heats up the e-liquid which vaporizes into water vapour. E-liquid usually contains nicotine, which means that using an e-cigarette you can fulfill your nicotine cravings without smoking tars and producing a dangerous second-hand smoke of a traditional cigarette.
What is e-liquid?
E-liquid is the liquid substance which is a combination of several different ingredients - nicotine, propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin and food flavouring. You fill the clearomizer of an e-cigarette with it to vape. Heating coil in the clearomizer heats it up and turns it into vapor which is then inhaled by the user.
How does an e-cigarette work?
An e-cigarette is made up of two separate parts joined together. One of those parts is the cigarette battery, which is usually a rechargeable lithium ion battery. The battery is the longest and biggest part that makes up the e-cigarette. The second part of the electronic cigarette is called the Clearomizer. It serves as a tank that holds e-liquid and the heater that heats up the e-liquid so you taste it when you puff on the e-cigarette. Tank capacity varies by model from 1.3ml to 3ml and more. When you vape, you push and hold the button on the battery to make it work. It provides energy to the heating coil at the bottom of the clearomizer, which heats up the e-liquid in the tank. Vapour of the e-liquid then is inhaled through an airhole in the clearomizer.
Why you should choose to switch to vaping?
There is a number of sound arguments why you should ditch traditional cigarettes and switch to vaping. Everything depends on your personal needs. In our experience, there were many instances of long time smokers who finally decide to start a healthier lifestyle or light smokers. In such case it is not easy, as a person is too much used to smoking because of various reasons - emotional satisfaction, peer pressure when even a conversation with a co-worker cannot be imagined without a cigarette. It is not easy to stop smoking once and for all, so that is why people switch to e-cigarettes. An electronic cigarette fulfills nicotine cravings, provides the needed throat hit, thus is a perfect alternative to traditional smoking.

Who is an e-cigarette designed for?
It is designed for current smokers who want to switch to a safer alternative and gradually lower nicotine intake. It is not made for non-smokers and we do not encourage anyone to start smoking.
How long does e-cigarette and e-liquid last?
All of our e-cigarettes are refillable, so they will last until they stop working completely. And for that to happen you would have to vape quite a while. Speaking of e-liquid, it highly depends on your smoking habits, but according to our customers on average a 10ml bottles lasts for a week and 30ml bottle lasts for 2-3 weeks.
How often do I have to change heating coils?
The amount of time coil lasts is also very subjective, but you would have to change a coil in a clearomizer after approximately a month of vaping. It depends on how much you vape and how often do you use different e-liquid flavours in the same clearomizer. A rule of thumb - when e-liquid you vape starts tasting bad it is time to clean the clearomizer and change the coils.
