Build Your Own E-Cig

There are a lot of ways that you can build your own e-cig. A lot of electronic cigarette aficionados enjoy combining their passion for vaping with their own engineering skills and creativity. Some of the results have been impressive. Vapers have converted all sorts of everyday objects into vaping marvels. I once saw an 80s icon, the Rubik’s Cube, converted into a mech mod vaping device. Virtually anything can house the workings of a functioning vaporizer. All you need to build your own electronic cigarette is a battery, an element to convert battery power into heat (or an atomizer), some wick,...

Grassroots E-Cig Organization Says No More Misinformation

Fed up with false reports on e-cigarette safety that highlight greatly exaggerated e-cig dangers, the grassroots Smoke Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA) is taking action. The non-profit, grassroots e-cig organization has simply had enough of seeing e-cig research that is so clearly slanted make the headlines. E-cigarette research is a vital component of growing the industry and getting the word out there about these products, but not if it is as misleading as it has been thus far. People want to know the answer to the popular “are e-cigs safe” question, and the provocative conclusions that are being publicized simply lead people...

Mech Mods

More and more vapers are moving toward the massive amount of vapor produced by mech mods. In the beginning of the vaping revolution, almost all of the electronic cigarettes available were cig-a-likes. Mods evolved based on modifications that were made to these early e-cigs that enabled them to produce more vapor. Cigalikes, even the early incarnations, would limit battery output to the 4 volt range. Not enough for those with high vapor demands. (By the way, what do you call it when a hillbilly is reincarnated – reintarnation! Sorry.) The first mods that came into existence were often former flashlights that innovative vapers ...

FDA to Hold Second Public E-Cigarette Workshop

The discussion around e-cig safety, which inherently includes e-cigarette dangers, continues in another public forum. With FDA e-cig regulations on their way at some point in the future, the government watchdog is set to hold a second public e-cigarette workshop next month from March 9th through the 10th. This follows the workshop the FDA conducted late last year that covered five topics, including packaging and labeling as well as environmental impact. Obviously there are a lot more topics to address and thus the FDA set the next workshop to occur not that long after the first. The importance of these workshops may be a little ...

E-Cigarettes Among Fastest Growing Products In UK Stores

Consumers in the UK are heading to convenience stores in droves looking for the best electronic cigarette. The presence of electronic cigarette brands in stores across the UK furthered in 2014, and with that came a record year in sales. One primary factor into this rise in sales is the fact that the pharmacy chain Boots, which is a huge chain in the UK, began selling e-cigs for the first time last year.

Atlantic Cigs Owns Predicate Product: Total Game Changer For Ecig Industry

On Monday, we reported that Altria was attempting to acquire the ‘predicate product’. Possession of the predicate product would give an e-cigarette brand considerable sway in the future of the ecig industry. Altria has already made a seven figure offer for the predicate product and given the immense ramifications we can expect a frenzy of activity. The predicate product was previously unknown, few accepted that it even existed. Regulators themselves were not aware of any predicate product existing. The FDA defined the product as an e-cig product that was being commercially sold in the United States prior to February 15, 2007. This week we were able to confirm that...
