Inhaling sends nicotine into the lungs. When you exhale a small smoke like vapor cloud is produced, this is a mixture of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, water and flavorings, safe ingredient that are also used as food additives.

We recommend users buy a proper rechargeable E cigarette Kit before going to far (or not far enough!)

Many starter kits include batteries, atomizers, cartridges, or atomizer cartridge combinations known as cartomizers / or increasingly clearomizers an e cig tanks.

E Cig Life span for units overall, e cigarette battery longevity and “E cig Liquid” capacity vary by model and in general it makes most sense to select the model or size that fits your needs and then compare apples with apples. Most Vapers will elect for starting with a ‘mini rechargeable e cigarette kit’ or ‘disposable e cigarette’ and while disposables have their place, they don’t substitute for the range and overall satisfaction an up to date rechargeable smokeless cigarette does.

If you have already tried disposables and are looking for more that is great and is just what we are here for! But if you are feeling a tad disappointed after just such a dabbling into smoke free cigarette options don’t despair!

, 2014

The trend will likely continue towards broader and broader availability of cheap, brand name electronic cigarettes that are either entirely or mostly disposable one use units and this is NOT really a good thing for vaping from a broad perspective even if it does help ensure ecigs are available in the short term.

As you may have guessed disposable ecigs are a model promising big earnings for the companies with the deepest pockets. Yes I am refering to electronic cig’s uneasy bedfellow Mr. Big Tobacco (once sworn enemy now reluctant savior!). Big tobacco companies are behind this direction for the same reasons one might suppose it plays to their strangth, namely an existing distribution chain through retail channels, convenience stores etc. where tobacco products currently sell and top tier ecig brand names

On the whole the industry has come a remarkable distance in a few short years while the few brands like V2 Cigs and Smokeless Image VOLT hit the right balance

We recommend users buy the disposable E cigarette when making their purchases in a gas station. This is because the models offered and most gas stations may have parts that are hard to replaces. Keep in mind most gas/convenience and most physical stores mark up prices on the very few options/models they offer. If possible always try to make your purchase online from the brand itself.

You have chosen an E cig that fits your personal preferences and has gone through an honest, unbiased and thorough review. If it has also received high ratings, and positive reviews, then you are ready to make your purchase. We put significant effort and time into our reviews (based on James 4 years of experience with the different brand and models of Electronic cigarettes) so you receive the best and most relevant information out there.

As we expand and grow this website, we will be launching some amazing and exciting giveaways (e cig kits, gift certificates and premium e liquid) for our more experienced users. We want you to share your testimonials, your unbiased and unfiltered reviews.

We will add user reviews on our website right next to our expert review so you have the option of side to side analysis.

In life we strive to make good choices. In order to do this, we look at the different options provided and we choose the one that is fit for our different tastes and needs. E cigs are no different. We encourage you to properly read through E cig brand reviews research and reviews.

We provide clear examples of the benefits and draw backs that different brands have to offer and how they pertain to your lifestyle. For example the best kit for the traveling man or woman in search of portability is very different from the kit that the higher nicotine content user would want to purchase. This is the type of useful, detailed information we provide to help our readers make the right decision about all their E cigarette needs.

Our recommendations on the different brands available are based on the knowledge that E Cigarette models offered from different brands
we recommend have been designed based on some shared specifications, making them partially or completely compatible with each other.

This means it is possible to buy your main electronic cigarette kit and some add ons from the same merchant, which also gives you access to a wider variety of prefilled cartomizer flavors from different brands. Portable charging cases are also available for purchase to protect your E cig while recharging anywhere you are. These charging cases are unique to the compatible brand’s catalogue, just like a cell phone case is unique to the make, model or brand of cell phone you own.

Legislation and Agreement

  • Iowa Code chapter 453A
  • Iowa Code chapter 453C
  • Iowa Code chapter 453D
  • Master Settlement Agreement (MSA)

Explanation and History

In 1998, the State of Iowa, 45 other states, the District of Columbia and five United States Territories entered into the Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) to settle claims against the four largest tobacco manufacturers. Under the MSA, the manufacturers agreed to certain restrictions on their marketing and to make payments perpetually to offset the State’s costs arising from the health problems associated with the use of their tobacco products. In addition, the MSA effectively changed how tobacco companies that sell cigarettes and roll your own tobacco may do business in Iowa.

Tobacco manufacturers who wish to sell their product in Iowa are subject to two important pieces of legislation. The first imposes financial obligations on tobacco product manufacturers. Iowa Code 453C.2 requires that tobacco manufacturers either become a party to the MSA and generally comply with the terms and obligations under the MSA, or establish a qualified escrow account and pay into it in accordance with Iowa Code 453C.2(2) as a non participating manufacturer. NPMs not listed currently on the Directory will be required to make quarterly escrow payments. See Iowa Code 453D.5 Iowa Admin. Code 61 5.3(1). Current NPMs also may be subject to a quarterly payment requirement. See Iowa Admin. Code 61 5.3. A tobacco manufacturer that fails to comply with either of these two requirements yet continues to market its product in Iowa, whether through a distributor, retailer, or similar intermediary, is subject to litigation and civil penalties.

The second important piece of legislation is complementary to the first and enforces the financial obligations of tobacco manufacturers. Iowa Code chapter 453D mandates that all tobacco product manufacturers who wish to sell their product in Iowa be certified by the Iowa Attorney General for inclusion on the Iowa Directory of Certified Tobacco Product Manufacturers and Brands. For certification, the tobacco product manufacturer must either be a participating manufacturer under the MSA or in full compliance with Iowa Code chapter 453C. If any person possesses, sells, or offers for sale in Iowa the brand of a tobacco product manufacturer not included on the Iowa Directory, the product is contraband and criminal and/or civil penalties will apply.
