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...

New Zealand to Regulate Electronic Cigarettes as Consumer Products

When it comes to regulating electronic cigarettes, most countries usually consider two options - regulating them either as tobacco products (even though they contain no tobacco) or as medicinal products, both of which involve severe restrictions that keep e-cigs from fulfilling their full potential. Well, one country is doing the unthinkable, regulating electronic cigarettes as consumer products. Read More...

Physicians Reluctant to Recommend E-Cigarettes for Smoking Cessation, Survey Finds

According to a scientific paper published in the latest issue of the Annals of the American Thoracic Society journal, the vast majority of physicians would not recommend e-cigarettes to help their patients quit smoking, even after learning that FDA-approved solutions did not work for them. In an effort to explore American physicians' experiences discussing electronic...

Study on the Formation of Benzene in E-Cigarettes Finds More of It in Ambient Air

The authors of a new study on the formation of benzene in electronic cigarettes struggle to suggest that levels of the known carcinogen detected during their research can be considered dangerous, when in reality they are much lower than the benzene found in tobacco smoke and even ambient air. Let me just start by saying that if you want to know how misinformation about e-cigarettes...

Smoant Charon 218W Review

The Smoant Charon is a dual-18650 battery mod that combines a classic, ergonomic design with the most advanced features vaping technology has to offer, such as on board balanced charging and fast charging.

The Clean Vape E-Liquid Review

There is a lot of controversy surrounding Diacetyl, Acetyl Propionil and Acetonin in e-liquid.

HorizonTech ARCO Tank Review

The HorizonTech ARCO is a 25-mm sub-ohm tank that doesn't really seem very impressive at first glance, but actually introduces something completely new to vaping - flax paper. That's right, the coils that come with the ARCO tank have both flax paper and cotton as wicking, but it's the flax that comes into direct contact with the coils. HorizonTech cites some advantages that flax paper allegedly has over cotton, but I just had to test it for myself. Is it good? Is it bad? Well, check out my...

Tigertek Springer X RDA Review

Breaking into the crowded vaping industry is pretty tough for a new company, but I think Tigertek has the right approach - innovation. Their new Springer X RDA is unlike anything I've ever seen before. It basically offers a screw-less alternative to the regular RDA build deck, instead relying on strong springs to keep your coil leads in place. It's definitely a novel idea, and one that could actually make RDAs more mainstream, as this concept really makes setting up your dripper faster and...

Vandy Vape Pulse 22 BF RDA Review

As the name suggests, the Pulse 22 BF RDA from Vandy Vape is a 22 mm RDA primarily designed with squonkers in mind. The BF stands for "bottom feeding", in case you haven't figured it out, so the Pulse is mainly meant to be used with squonk mods, which feed juice into the atomizer through a hollow connection pin. It works just as well in dripping mode, but it's the squonking functionality that really makes this atomizer stand out from the hundreds of other RDAs. If you're reading this...
