e-cigarette safety information

General safety information

E-liquid – contains nicotine, which in it’s pure form is classified as a poison, and can be harmful if swallowed or comes into contact with the skin for a prolonged period.

Always keep your e-liquid (and electronic cigarette) in a safe place away from where children and pets could get access to it, in a locked cupboard or out of their reach.

Keep e-liquid in child-proof bottles supplied these have a child proof cap and health and safety warnings on them plus the tactile triangle for partially sited people, so that they are not mistaken for medication of any kind.

Wash off any liquid that comes in contact with your skin (as it may cause a redness if you have sensitivity) and wipe any surfaces clean if it is spilt.

What does e-liquid contain?

E-liquid/e-juice – contains propylene glycol (PG) this is found in lots of medications and deodorants as well as some foods, it is also used in asthma inhalers to promote easy clear breathing, if you read the ref below at Time Magazine research undertaken in the 1940’s showed PG to have amazing properties for fighting bacteria. PG gives the throat hit, the thud, that feeling at the back of your throat when you draw on the e-cig.

Vegetable glycerine – this is used in most foodstuffs available in supermarkets for its lubricating qualities, (VG) it’s basically refined vegetable oil and is a fairly healthy product, some bakers even use it in bread to keep it fresher for longer ,this is what produces the vapour, and makes the vapour smooth and mellow, it also enhances the flavour in the e-juice to really bring out the taste.

Nicotine – this comes in varying strengths as required (from zero where people require none to around 32mg which would be for very heavy smokers) some people reduce the nicotine level over time, keep in mind vaping like all habits should be balanced meaning don’t overdo it, like all activities moderation is the key.

Food flavourings – these are commonly used today in supermarket  processed food to enhance the flavour of what is basically tasteless food, these same flavourings are used in the e-juice to add the required flavour and enhance the vaping experience. There are thousands of flavours available, tobacco, fruit, sweet, savoury, etc. Many people start with tobacco because they want to replicate the smoking as near as possible, then when their taste improves which it invariably does, they decide to try other flavours of which they have a huge choice.

Battery safety

Batteries and atomizers. Never leave charging batteries un-attended particularly overnight, do not leave batteries on the charger once they are fully charged, use the charger provided some of the rapid chargers on the market for mobiles could damage the battery if the battery is not capable of taking the current.

Battery life averages 4 months to 1 year depending on use, keep the contacts clean, and never over-tighten when you screw the battery into the charger or into the clearomizer because over-tightening could damage the connections on the battery or what it’s connecting to.

Keep batteries in a safe place out of reach from children and pets. Dispose of used batteries with concern for the environment, and if you are putting your e-cig in your pocket or bag you can turn the battery off using the 5 click safety system on most kits. Battery cells should be stored in a safe area and transported in a plastic container.

Never carry them in your pocket with other metal objects as this can short the battery and cause a hazard.

Atomizers

Atomizers commonly come in standard resistance which is stated in ohms, 1.8 – 2.4 is average for most small atomizers, you can also purchase lower resistance subohm atomizers, the benefit of these is they heat faster producing thicker vapour with each draw you take.

When using a subohm atomizer you should draw the vapour directly into your lungs (lung hit) as this will maintain a constant air flow to the coil and prevent it from getting too hot.

If you treat your kit properly and look after it keeping it clean and maintained it will last you a lot longer.

Cleaning and Maintenance of your kit

Clean your kit with an anti-bacterial wipe regularly, store it somewhere clean and dry out of the way of children and pets, if you are in a public place although not covered under any smoking ban it’s best to ask if you can use your electronic cigarette because many people will mistake it for a tobacco cigarette and may complain.

If you do not already smoke tobacco we suggest you don’t start using electronic cigarettes, we strongly suggest that pregnant women do not use electronic cigarettes, and we do not sell electronic cigarettes to people under 18 years of age or under the legal smoking age in your country.

If you are below 18 years of age and wish to purchase a kit for a relative as a gift we suggest getting an adult family member to purchase on your behalf for that relative.
