Philip Morris IQOS No Less Harmful Than Cigarettes, French Pneumologist Says

The IQOS heat stick from Philip Morris International is the hottest reduced-risk tobacco product on the market right now, but one French pneumologist claims that it is just as dangerous as regular tobacco cigarettes. In an interview with French newspaper Read More...

CDC Report Shows That More Smokers Try to Quit with E-Cigarettes Than FDA-Approved Cessation Aids

U.S. health regulators continue to downplay the importance and effectiveness of electronic cigarettes as smoking cessation tools, but a recent report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) clearly shows that smokers believe that they have a much better chance of quitting with e-cigs than with FDA-approved aids like nicotine patches and gum. Last Thursday, the CDC published a Read More...

London Fire Brigade Advises Smokers to Switch to Vaping to Reduce Risk of Fires

On April 7th, World Health Day, the London Fire Brigade (LFB) issued a press release advising cigarette smokers to switch to electronic cigarettes, if they can't quit nicotine completely, in order to minimize the risk of accidental fires. Over the last three years, the LFB has recorded over 3500 smoking related fires compared to only 14 incidents involving electronic cigarettes over the same period of time. That's over 255 times more blazes caused by smoking and the...

Harsh Regulations Make E-Cigarettes Less Effective for Smoking Cessation, Study Finds

We didn't really need scientific research to reach this conclusion, but a study published in the journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research reveals that excessive regulations on electronic cigarettes may impact their effectiveness as a tool for quitting smoking.

SMOK AL85 Kit Review

The SMOK Alien 220W, my favorite all-time dual 18650 battery mod, apparently fell in love with the iStick PICO 75W, and the two had a baby together. It's called the SMOK AL85 and it's basically a smaller version of the Alien which borrows a couple of design elements from Eleaf's popular mini mod. In terms of ergonomics, functionality and build quality, the Alien 220W is still the best dual-battery mod money can buy, in my humble opinion, but if you're looking for something just as good that...

Mr. Macaron E-Liquid Review

Mr. Macaron has been on the market for just about six months, but it's already one of the most popular e-liquid brands on the market. They have some interesting dessert flavors, but the meteoric rise of Mr. Macaron has actually been the result of a number of factors, including quality, reputation and great presentation. We'll touch on all of them in this review, and decide if the success of Mr. Macaron e-liquid is well-deserved, of if the brand has so far been carried by its flawless...

SMOK OSUB Baby Kit Review

I was a big fan of the SMOK OSUB Plus 80W, and I always believed that it didn't really get the attention it deserved from the vaping community. It was ergonomic, easy to use, had plenty of power under the hood and a built-in battery, features which made it a very versatile vaping device. It's still in my rotation of mods and performing as well as the day I took it out of the box. So I was glad that SMOK didn't...

Joyetech Atopack Penguin Review

Pod, or cartridge systems have become fairly popular in the last two years, but so far they've largely been used in closed vaping systems that don't allow refilling. With the Atopack Penguin mod, Chinese manufacturer Joyetech introduces giant refillable cartridges that are extremely easy to use, and pairs them with an ergonomic and surprisingly well-performing vaporizer. In my humble opinion, this innovative yet practical combination has all the makings of a big hit and the potential to...

Uwell Crown III Tank Review

The original Uwell Crown was one of the most well-received sub-ohm tanks in vaping history, and for good reason. The build quality was excellent and in terms of performance it was on a whole other level from everything else on the market at the time of its launch. The Crown II was meant to build on the success of its predecessor, but due to some serious design faults it ended up being a total failure. With the third generation Crown tank, Uwell was either going to redeem themselves and prove...
