What is an e-cigarette?
E-cigarettes are electronic cigarettes, which are alternatives to traditional cigarettes. They deliver nicotine in vapour form (via a battery, liquid container and coil), without also producing the tar, tobacco and carbon monoxide that are undesirable byproducts of traditional tobacco products.
E-cigarette batteries are usually in-built lithium ion batteries, which are rechargeable. Advanced e-cigarettes have removable batteries that can be replaced after prolonged usage.
Liquid containers are also known as clearomizers; they contain a heating element within an atomizer (coil). By using battery power, the coil heats the e-liquid so that it can be inhaled as vapour.
How much do e-cigarettes cost?
The costs of electronic cigarettes varies, with beginner kits ranging from £20-£30, intermediate kits costing between £40-£60 and advanced kits costs more than £60.
Maintenance costs are often relatively low, since only atomizer heads and e-liquids need to be purchased on a regular basis.
Atomizer heads (also known as coils) usually last for two weeks (depending on the frequency of use and battery voltage). Greater voltages usually correlate with shorten atomizer head lifespans.
How do I get started?
For beginner, we suggest purchasing a kit – which comes with everything you need to get started. We also suggest that you purchase additional e-liquids to ensure that you are well stocked for all the vaping sessions you plan to experience.

All e-Liquids consist of Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, flavourings, nicotine and permitted colouring.
E-liquids that are 100% VG contain no Propylene Glycol. Max VG means that there is a high VG content, but does not mean that the e-liquid contains no PG.
Is nicotine harmful?
While there is debate about the effects of nicotine, there is no conclusive research that proves its harmfulness. Most of the negativity associated with nicotine is due to its consumption via tobacco cigarettes.
What nicotine strength should I choose?
We recommend 12mg for beginner vapers, which is similar to the amount of nicotine found in traditional cigarettes.
Are your products suitable for vegetarians?
Yes, all of our products are suitable for vegetarians.
Why did my e-liquid change colour?
E-liquids that are exposed to air and light occasionally change colour. This is normal. However, if the liquid in your tank turns into a dark brown or black colour, this indicates that you need to change your tank or replace the atomizer head in the unit (if it is a replaceable clearomizer).
How long does a 10ml e-liquid bottle last?
For an average user, a 10ml bottle should last for 5-7 days. A standard clearomizer/tank has a 1.6ml capacity, and usually lasts for a full day for average users.
