The holiday season is in full-swing, including all the sights and smells. While there is a crispness to the fall air, there’s also the scent of delicious aromas, like roasting chestnuts and decadent mulled wine, alongside the bittersweet warmth of a crackling wood fire to ultimately put you in the mood for the festive season. That being said, many people use the month of December to spend extra time with their loved ones. However, stepping outside into the bitter cold is not the most appealing holiday activity. Stop missing the important moments, keep warm inside and begin to improve your health over the holidays by choosing to use an e-cigarette, rather than a combustible cigarette.

Stop missing the important moments

When you’re constantly popping in and out to smoke your traditional cigarette, you’re wasting time that should be spent with your loved ones. Whether it’s a little one in your family who took their first few steps or someone just told an incredible story, the shrieks of excitement are most definitely an indication that you’re missing these joyous moments of significance.

So, when you’re finally making the choice to throw away your combustible cigarettes and switch to vaping, you’re are automatically saving your departures from the dinner table and becoming a bigger part of the festive memory making. That being said, your family will most likely also appreciate that the horrible smell of burnt tobacco on your hands and clothes will no longer be combating the delicious smell of the holiday feast. You’re welcome!

It’s way too cold outside anyways

Often times, depending on where you live, the holiday season will subject you to the bitter cold. As a smoker, you’re no stranger to having frostbitten fingertips or your lighter constantly being blown out by the treacherous winter winds. Lighting a traditional cigarette and smoking outside can be an infuriating task during the holiday season. So, why not alleviate the added holiday stress by switching to vaping? Then you can simply sit back, relax and vape away in the toasty warm comfort of your cozy home.

Your body will thank you

Not only are combustible cigarettes the leading preventable death in the United States, but tobacco ingestion possesses the potential to damage your brain, lungs and heart as well as increase your risk to develop many smoking-related diseases. A clean bill of health is the best gift that you can give your loved ones for the holidays and also the best gift that you can receive from yourself. For smokers who need a helping hand, an e-cigarette is a handy tool that you can use to help free yourself from your tobacco dependency. It also allows you to control your nicotine intake and choose between a variety of delicious flavors.

Did you know that electronic cigarettes have a historical timeline?

the history of e-cigs

 the history of e-cigs

Although vaping seems to be all the rave in the media lately, interestingly enough the history of e-cigs actually dates back almost 90 years. So, let’s take a look at how this innovative technology became the device we know and love today.

1930: Joseph Robinson was granted a patent for the first documented reference of an electronic cigarette. Though it was never entirely clear if his prototype was actually manufactured.  

1960s: Jumping ahead 30 years, Herbert A. Gilbert was credited with his creation of the first device that closely resembles a modern-day e-cigarette. Having received his patent in 1965, Gilbert created many prototypes, but failed to commercialize his smokeless, non-tobacco cigarette product.

1979-80s: Now, we’ve entered the age of technology where Phil Ray, one of the pioneers of computers, worked alongside physician Norman Jacobson to create the first commercialized variation of an e-cigarette device — although it wasn’t actually electronic.  

1990s: Many patents for nicotine inhalation devices began to surface during this decade, including products that were invented by big tobacco corporations. Although these devices closely resembled our modern-day nicotine delivery technology, they were denied widespread commercialization due to FDA permissions.

2003: The success of the e-cigarette began in this year due to the success of the first commercial electronic cigarette in Beijing, China. Creator, Hon Lik, reportedly created the device for his father, a heavy smoking who was dying of lung cancer.

2006: E-cigs were introduced to the European market. Shortly after, they made their way to the United States.

2008 – 2012: Various countries and states discover their stance on electronic cigarettes and set regulations based on studies.

2013: The first E-Cigarette Summit was held in London in order to provide a platform to present scientific evidence on vaping. It was aimed at helping inform the public about health and policy debates.

2014: The word of the year is vape and many pro-vaping organizations were created, including American Vaping Association (AVA) and Smoke-Free Alternative Trade Association (SFATA), aimed at educating people about the use of vapor products and e-cigarettes to help smokers quit.

Present day: Vapers continue to fight for their right to use a better form of nicotine delivery.

How do you use the Logic Pro?

Logic Pro Vaporizer

 Logic Pro Vaporizer

There are a lot of questions people have when they first start vaping, starting with which product they should invest in. At I Love Ecigs, we recognize that there are a vast number of devices on the market, but the Logic Pro vaporizer is a technology that stands out above the rest. As one of our top-selling products, due to its outstanding engineering, it’s known for being a simple, life changing, state-of-the-art technology that offers its users an enhanced vaping experience. This premium electronic cigarette is also easy-to-assemble, easy-to-charge and easy-to-love. Now, let’s find out just how easy the Logic Pro vaporizer is to use.

How do you change flavor capsules?

The Logic Pro is one of the most convenient vapor systems on the market. Once you notice that your e-liquid capsule is empty, which is visible through the window on the mouthpiece, simply disconnect your battery from the mouthpiece by twisting it counter clockwise. Once the battery has been removed you will be able to slide your used, disposable capsule out of the device. Next, remove the two plastic caps from each end of your new flavor capsule and insert it into the mouthpiece. Now, you’ll be able to screw the device back together. Then you’ll want to press the center button five times. The technology will be activated by this action and should blink blue to indicate that it’s ready to use.

How do you charge the device?

Your Logic Pro vaporizer is equipped with an advanced, cutting edge battery technology. But, like any superior battery, it will eventually need to be charged. In order to charge your battery, it will need to be removed from the mouthpiece — this can be done by twisting it counter clockwise. The battery can then be screwed into the USB charger, which can be plugged into your computer (while its on), using one of the USB ports. The light on the charger will remain red while it’s charging, approximately 3-5 hours, and will flip to green when it has full battery power. You will then be able to twist the battery off of the charger and back onto your device to begin vaping. Remember to click the center button five times to activate the battery.

Basic safety tips for vaping

vaping safety

vaping safety

Over the years, there have been stories reported about faulty or defective e-cig devices. Although it’s incredibly uncommon, as with most electronic accessories, it’s important to do your research and always put your safety first. That’s why we’ve crafted this list of helpful tips that will help vapers to elevate their vaping experience by maintaining the longevity of the device and practicing basic vaping safety.

How to care for your e-cigarette battery

The most important thing a vaper can do to ensure safety is to properly care for their batteries. We recommend for you to always inspect your batteries prior to use, making sure that they are free of any dampness or damage. However, there are a few other ways that you can maintain your batteries.

  • Store your batteries at room temperature or below  
  • Avoid the exposure of direct sunlight
  • Use the correct charger or adapter for your battery
  • Avoid overcharging your battery – no need to charge overnight
  • Avoid under-charging your battery – give it enough time to fully charge
  • Never carry loose batteries around in your pocket
  • Give your battery time to cool down after using it prior to recharging it
  • Do not keep the battery in your mouth for extended periods as it can heat and create a burn

Avoid unregulated MODS

If you’re a first-time vaper, unregulated modifications to your device are not recommended. They’re generally more powerful and require a basic understanding of how circuits connect to their battery sources.

Regulated devices, such as the brand Logic, detect any issues the device is having and shut it down as part of a built-in safety feature. While unregulated devices are not constructed with these features, which makes them more dangerous for inexperienced vapers. For those who simply want a grab-and-go, smooth vaping experience, Logic also offers a care-free disposable option.

Purchase a spill-proof option

Adding e-liquid to your own device has a list of advantages, including the ability to mix a combination of flavors. While this vaping method is a sophisticated choice for the more advanced vaper, in order to avoid any spillage, beginner vapers should try use a pre-filled cartomizer. They are much easier to operate — simply remove the plastic caps from each end and twist the cartridge onto the battery.

E-Cigarettes are not tobacco products

smokeless technology

smokeless technology

Contrary to popular belief, e-cigarettes are actually tobacco free products. There is no combustion or smoke that is created during the process of vaping. In this case, instead of burning tobacco and smoking the contents like a traditional cigarette, e-cigs actually only heat up the e-liquid in the cartomizer to a high enough temperature to allow the user to inhale the vapor. In other words, this smokeless technology, often referred to by various media outlets as a ‘gateway’ to combustible cigarettes, is actually quite the opposite. An e-cig is merely a battery-operated device that smokers can use to help them replace the harmful habit of combustible cigarettes and simultaneously cut their nicotine dependency at their own pace.

What is tobacco?

Tobacco is a plant, part of the nightshade family, whose leaves are cured by striping them off, drying them out and fermenting them to be put into products such as combustible cigarettes and cigars. It also contains nicotine, the prime addictive stimulant that is found in traditional cigarettes. With over 70 different species known, tobacco use is actually one of the most preventable causes of death to humans.

What does tobacco do to the body?  

The use of tobacco has the ability to affect the heart, liver and lungs making it a contributing factor to many variations of cancers. Although nicotine, which can be found both in combustible cigarettes and in various concentration levels in e-cigs, is known for its addictive qualities, it does not compare to the severe health effects that come from the inhalation or ingestion of tobacco.

Tobacco smoking drastically increases the risk of heart disease, strokes and heart attacks. It has also been linked to leukemia, cataracts, pneumonia and emphysema — a condition in which the air sacs of your lungs are so damaged that it’s hard to breath. Individuals who chew tobacco instead of smoking it are not safe from the effects of this harmful substance. Chewing tobacco actually is one of the notorious culprits that lead to many forms of mouth cancers.

How does tobacco affect those who are around you?

The use of tobacco products not only negatively impacts your health, but it also has the ability to affect your loved ones.

People who are exposed to secondhand smoke can also get the short end of the stick when it comes to health problems — coughing, reduced lung function, pneumonia, asthma and bronchitis just to name a few.

Pregnant women who smoke also run an increased risk of miscarriage, stillborn or premature infants or infants born with abnormally low birth weights.

Why use e-cigarettes as an alternative to smoking?

Using a smokeless technology reduces many of the health risks that come along with smoking tobacco products while also giving you the freedom to choose your nicotine levels. Using a brand such as Logic allows vapers to select a nicotine concentration level that suits their needs. Over time the nicotine strengths can be reduced to a zero-nicotine e-cig.

E-cigarettes are smoke-free, tobacco free and smell free. It’s time to free yourself from the clutches of tobacco and experience another form of nicotine delivery!

Essential tips for beginner vapers

beginner vaping tips

beginner vaping tips

There is a lot of important information floating around out there for a first-time vaper. Although it may seem a little daunting at the start, it’s imperative to learn as much as you can about electronic cigarettes and how they work in order to receive the finest vaping experience. With the limitless options available, in passable retail shops and more appropriately online, when it comes to state-of-the-art devices, decadent flavors and nicotine concentration ratios, you’ll want a better understanding before you invest in your selection of superiority. To narrow it down for you we’ve crafted some essential beginner vaping tips to get your exploration started.

What is an e-cigarette?

An electronic cigarette expends vaporized nicotine, or non-nicotine flavored vapor, through the use of a battery-operated device. The mechanism is designed to mimic the act of smoking a combustible cigarette, all while providing a similar sensation, without any combustion, smell or smoke.

Most devices are equipped with a rechargeable battery and flavored e-liquid cartridge. Although some are designed to be disposable.   

How does it work?

These little handheld devices heat up the e-liquid within the cartomizer to its boiling point, which in turn converts it into inhalable vapor.  

Popular brands, such as Logic, look and feel like real combustible cigarettes and possess an intuitive, easy-to-assemble technology with interlocking pieces (battery and cartomizer) that twist together. It’s designed to be functional and simple to use.

What is e-liquid?

Also, commonly referred to as e-juice, this liquid mixture is made up of water, food grade flavoring, propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG) and your choice of nicotine concentration.

Cartomizers come in rich, high-quality flavors such as Cherry, Berry Mint and Watermelon. As an incredibly inclusive product, for those who miss the robust taste of their combustible cigarettes, Tobacco and Menthol are the most popular flavors that are available in e-liquid form. There is even an e-cigar replacement for regular cigar smokers, or those who like to enjoy one as part of a celebration – it’s smokeless and leaves no odor so other party-goers won’t complain.  

How do you know which nicotine strength to use?

The nicotine strength that you should use is entirely dependent on your prior combustible smoking habits. If you were a light, casual smoker, 20 mg/ml (1.8%) e-liquids should work well for you, however, if you were a heavier smoker, you’ll want to purchase a 27 mg/ml (2.4%) e-liquid or higher in order to achieve a similar sensation when you vape.

Yet, the best part about selecting a nicotine-containing vape juice is the control it gives you. Once you become less dependent on nicotine, over a varied period of time, you have the choice to select an e-juice that contains a lower nicotine strength. That’s pretty remarkable.

We hope that our collection of beginner vaping tips answered a few of your questions. If you have any more, drop a comment below.

A few handy tips to help maintain your e-cig

e-cig maintenance

e-cig maintenance

In order for your vaping device to provide you with a maximum level of enjoyment, you’ll need to ensure that it is properly cared for. The longevity of your e-cig is entirely dependent on the amount of invested time into its maintenance. Just like any other electronic, regular attention, cleaning and appropriate storage will optimize its performance and durability over time. Although, when it comes to vaping, regular maintenance also ensures that you will be able to enjoy the best release of flavors and a paramount airflow. Here are some ways that you can keep your electronic cigarette performing in state-of-the-art condition.

Store it appropriately

Electronics thrive when they are not collecting dust, so, it’s incredibly important to store your device in a durable case that will keep it away from fragments of dust, extreme temperatures or potential exposure to liquids. It’s also recommended to place it into a drawer or cupboard where light vulnerability is limited.

Properly care for the battery

The battery is the powerhouse behind your device and has the ability to greatly affect its functions. If your battery terminal is dirty, it’s possible that your device will not enable a connection to the power source. In order to ensure that you are never left with an inoperable device while you’re out on the go, remember to regularly clean your battery between uses to prevent any buildup of dust or debris. Never use water or any cleaning solutions to do this, simply wipe with a dry cloth. Moreover, it’s important to ensure that your battery is regularly charged, which can significantly lengthen the overall lifespan of the battery itself.

Store your e-liquid cartridges accordingly

Storing your cartomizers for your device not only maximizes the longevity of the flavors, but it also keeps it safely out of the reach of children and pets. The rule of thumb is pretty straightforward, store all e-cig parts in a cool, dark location away from direct sunlight.

Don’t overtighten your e-cig device

There is more to e-cig maintenance than simple cleaning and storage. How you handle your device plays just as much of a role in its lifespan. While you want to make sure that all of its components are secure, be sure that you aren’t overtightening the parts. Screwing your battery or cartridge too tightly can cause permanent damage by stripping or threading the components. When assembling or disassembling the device for cleaning or storage, only tighten the pieces just enough to remain secure.

If changing cartridges seems like too much of a hassle, you can always purchase disposable devices that come already pre-filled and ready to vape. Once you are finished, simply throw away and try a new flavor.

Vaping for relaxation and stress management

manage stress by vaping

manage stress by vaping

Stress from everyday life is a feeling that we know all too well. The ability to juggle a full-time career, raise a family and meet the needs of your mental health can sometimes be overwhelming. Not to mention, the moment that you toss in a social life, everything always seems to fall apart. Whether life is really intense at the moment or you’ve simply had a bad day, it’s important to take the time to decompress and relax. While you already know that e-cigs offer endless benefits to your physical health, you probably didn’t know that you can also help manage stress by vaping.

Vaping allows you to relax

Although there are many ways in which people cope with their stress levels, many vapers use their e-cigs as a means to destress and relax.

There is something to be said for sitting down to indulge in your morning cup of tea, or simply finding the time to leisurely read outside, uninterrupted by the hold of social media. For an ex-smoker, it used to be that taking a cigarette break while at work was part of your ritual that enabled you to wind down. Yet, sometimes the element of every day routine is a powerful contributor to your stress levels. Not only does vaping offer you a healthier nicotine replacement, opposed to combustible cigarettes, but it also serves the same purpose in terms of decompressing throughout the day.

Nicotine relaxes the body

When a person smokes a combustible cigarette, the nicotine releases a chemical called dopamine this chemical is found in the brain naturally, but the absorption of the nicotine will release added amounts of dopamine which in turn provides the brain with the sensation of pleasure and relaxation.

Part of living a stress-free lifestyle is saying goodbye to the toxic elements that make your life so tense. By eliminating smoking, you are taking control of your body and overcoming your need to rely on combustible cigarettes as a means of stress management. For some people, the hardest part of that process is the nicotine withdrawals.

The best thing you can do to manage your stress through this transition is to use an electronic cigarette. Top-of-the-line brands, such as Logic Pro, have designed e-cigs that look, feel and even taste like combustible cigarettes, which means that vaping has the ability to become your new decompression tool. With e-juice cartomizers offered in a variety of nicotine strengths, in time you will be able to wean yourself off of your addiction and simply enjoying the pleasurable sensation that vaping offers. Simply inhale the all the positivity and exhale all the negativity!
