Are e-Cigarettes Bad for You? eCig 101

are-ecigs-bad-title-image

There has been a lot of hyperbole and controversy surrounding electronic cigarettes. Particularly in the media, one can’t help but get confused by the mixed messages put forth.  Some say e-cigarettes are the greatest thing to happen to public health since germ theory, while on the other extreme some so-called experts claim e-cigarettes are somehow worse than the real thing.

777 eCigs Magnum Line Review

Today, I’m going to attempt a trio of e-cigarettes from 777 eCig’s new Magnum lineup. The Magnum is the company’s new offering of eGo-style e-cigarettes that feature a bottom coil clearomizer and three different style of batteries.  I decided to roll all three into the same review because they are fairly similar, and I hope I can keep from confusing everyone.  If you’re ready, so am I. Let’s get this 777 eCigs Magnum review underway!

V2 Cigs Starter Kit Revisited

V2 Cigs is one of the most popular e-cigarette companies in what I like to call the “big box” category. That is it’s a company that focuses on its own branded equipment that tends to focus more on the cigarette-like style of electronic cigarettes. V2 was one of the first big box brand I reviewed early on. That review continues to be popular, but I thought I’d get a current V2 Cigs starter kit to review to see if anything has changed.

Top 10 Studies on E-Cigs You Need to Know About

One of the most common criticisms raised against e-cigarettes is that they’re completely unsupported by research. The people who make this comment are clearly working under some unspoken assumption that nobody will read anything in the news, and that people in the vaping community are completely uninformed about the products they’re using.

Whilst long-term studies are needed (by definition, a new technology will always have this problem), there are plenty of pieces of research into e-cigarettes that reveal important facts you need to know about.

Vapor Couture – We Review the Feminine Side of eCigs

Vapor Couture is V2 Cigs e-cigarette brand made exclusively for women. In general, women account for around 85% of all consumer spending in the US, a fact that’s not lost on e-cigarette retailers as they increasingly try to court the ladies. In this Vapor Couture review I’ll tap into my feminine side to figure out if this is simple pandering or fulfilling an underserved niche in the electronic cigarette market.

e-Cigarette Jargon and Terms – eCig 101

e-cigarette terms jargon

[glossary_exclude]

You may have noticed this site tends to lean toward the hobbyist side of the e-cigarette world. With that comes a whole lot of jargon, terms and odd abbreviations.  Heck, even with standard e-cigarettes, there’s still some lingo to get used to. As part of the occasional series, eCig 101 I figured why not explain some of these terms.  While I’ll try to be as complete as I can, this probably won’t be an all-encompassing lexicon of terms.  New terms happen all the time, plus I’m likely to miss some.  I’ll update this article as new things come up, or people call me out in the comments.
