Day 5 – Burning Cartomizers

Posted on by Smokey Jones

I spent Sunday sorting through an incredible amount of old stuff, and testing out old cartridges, getting rid of the burnt ones. Some of them really taste bad!

I gathered things up, sorted them by brand, at least the best I could tell, anyway,  and put them in their boxes,  but I’m not sure what to do with them all.  Some of the stuff is just dead, and I’ve thrown all that away, but this is a pretty big batch of stuff I have…

A lot of old electric cigarette paraphernalia


Day 4 – Getting Better

Posted on by Smokey Jones

I finally told my wife yesterday after noon that I’d quit smoking. She’d seen me puffing on the ecigs more than usual, but had’n’t apparently noticed that I didn’t stink like cigarettes any more…

Of course she said “are you going to quit those too?” referring to the ecigs.Then she asked me if I “wanted” to quit smoking cigarettes, and when I said “of course not… nobody WANTS to stop smoking!” she said “because if you don’t want to then it’s less likely to stick”. Great. Thanks for that support, hon…

Day 3 With No Cigs

Posted on by Smokey Jones

This was actually easier than day two, although I’m burning through cartomizers pretty good.

Now that I’m using an Ecig INSTAD of smoking, I’ve found that my trusty Blu electric cigarette is alright, but the cartridges seem to stop tasting good pretty quickly. Feels like I could go through 3 in a single day!

I much prefer the throatier hits I get from my Southbeach, where one cartridge could make it through the day.

However, I’ve just made an order from a new vendor called Vaporzone, actually owned by the Southbeach folks, that used a pre-charge button to fire up the device.

Day 2 Off Cigarettes

Posted on by Smokey Jones

This morning I came downstairs to a burning smell in my office, where I had enlisted several different USB ports and e-cig adapters to charge my various batteries.

I knew over the next few days especially, I’d be trying lots of different options and ecigs, going through batteries, etc.

I couldn’t quite figure it out, until just now, when I was that one of the adapters had melted…

Ecig Charger Melted

Yikes! It was my Esmoke charger!

I Quit Smoking Last Night

Posted on by Smokey Jones

After traveling by plane a long way over the holidays, the Ecig did its job, and ever since, I’ve realized that I really SHOULD try to quit smoking, so I did, at about 3pm yesterday, when I decided not to buy cigarettes –  It’s  9 AM now…

Linn County Iowa – Permiit Required

Posted on by Smokey Jones

The official website of Linn county Iowa is reporting that –

The Linn County Board of Supervisors today approved an ordinance prohibiting the sale of unregulated products containing nicotine (including nicotine delivery systems) without a retail cigarette or tobacco products permit. The ordinance also prohibits the sale of unregulated products containing nicotine and nicotine delivery systems, to minors.

As a result, we’ve updated our state by state e-cig laws page to reflect this idiocy.

Take a look at some of the comments written here when it was first proposed, like this one from Lori Morris…

State by State Laws

Posted on by Smokey Jones

No federal nationwide smoking ban is currently implemented in the United States. Smoking laws and regulation in each state varies widely. Selling and use of e-cigs may be regulated or banned all together in some states and not in the others.

Not sure what your states stance is on electronic cigarettes? Check this e-cig legislation listing and be informed.

A Yes” means that the state is implementing regulations against e-cigs.

“No” means that there are no laws at all on e-cigs in that state.

Battery Evolution for 2012

Posted on by Smokey Jones

The heart of any electronic cigarette is the battery, and as of this writing, the most advanced battery in the industry has been released by our #1 vendor, South Beach Smoke.

Their SuperMAXTM Deluxe Battery  is probably the most advanced ecig battery on the market today.  At the tip it has their “signature crystal”, emitting bright orange glow when the user inhales, giving users a more realistic experience.

The battery comes standard on their Deluxe models (starting at just $59) , it’s available in two colors, and it even offers a choice in “switches”.


South Beach Smoke – Huge Price Drop!

Posted on by Smokey Jones

It’s no secret that South Beach is one of our fav0rite brands, and there are many reasons why they’ve sat atop our comparison chart for so long now.

Now though, they’ve given us another reason to love ‘em, with a permanent price reduction on all of their refill cartomizers.

 This is really huge news, because the industry is getting very competitive as it matures.

With the new pricing they’re offering on their home delivery program, they are now the cheapest by far, compared wit hother industry leaders.

Three Piece Electronic Cig Options Might Be for You

Posted on by Brad

If you are looking to make the switch to electric cigarettes, there are 3 basic designs on the market. The main one piece, two piece, and now the three piece types which are all on the market.

They all basically function exactly the same way, but the difference can be linked to cost and the versatility. Each one comes with a few things specific to only it.

The one piece type is usually used in the lower cost brands or even in electronic cigars, both of which are deemed to be disposable. Batteries in this variety are not designed to be recharged and as soon as their single use they are intended to be discarded.
