Can Vape clouds spread COVID-19?

Propylene glycol is an organic compound with the chemical formula CH₃CHCH₂OH.
It was first synthesized in the 60's specifically as an air born antibacterial. It has been pumped threw vents in hospitals, and used in asthma inhalers for the purpose of keeping bacteria from being able to spread as easily. Containing two alcohol groups, it is classed as a diols. It is considered to be one of the safest synthesized inhalants by the FDA.
It is a viscous, colorless liquid, which is nearly odorless but possesses a faintly sweet taste. With concentrations at or above 20%, both Ethylene and Propylene Glycol inhibit the growth and proliferation of most microbes.  

You can find all this information in a study done by UCLA medical center.

Vegetable Glycerin also has a great study that was ordered by the actors on Broadway when they became worried about the vapor they were constantly inhaling during "smoke" effects on stage. That smoke consisted of entirely  VG, and the study found no health effects.


Finally Nicotine

If you have ever studied any sort of chemistry, you will know that nicotine is an alcoloid very similar to caffine. It is not a carcinogen, nor has it ever actually been proven to be the truly addictive aspect of a cigarette. There are many other chemicals created in the combustion of a processed tobacco leaf that are substaintly more addictive and likely where cigarettes get their true hook. In tests, nicotine by its self has only been found to be slightly addictive, again similar to caffine's addictive nature.
Simply put, don't believe everything you hear. Just remember how deeply tobacco companies have their hands in the pockets of the politicians. Vaporizers are virtually harmless. I am not saying they are as good for you as just air, but let's be honest with ourselves, the air that everybody breathes, sitting in traffic or anywhere in a populated area is not great, Personal Vaporizers are not making it any worse.



Back in the 1940s, a young scientist by the name of Dr. Theodore Puck loved to study history in his spare time.  He was particularly fascinated by the stories of the Black Plague in fourteenth century London.
From a scientific perspective, Puck always wondered what caused the plague to stop spreading.  History says that it was only after the townspeople burned the city to the ground that the devastating event was finally over, but Puck always wanted to discover the true, underlying cause.
His theory was that there must have been some sort of chemical reaction occurring in the ashen air of the burning city of London that somehow killed the airborne bacteria spreading the disease.  So, Puck began experimenting with various chemicals when he eventually stumbled upon the miraculous health benefits of vaporized Propylene Glycol.  One of his most significant studies is entitled The Bactericidal action of propylene glycol vapor on microorganisms suspended in air (NLB-NIH).

Dr. Puck discovered that when this compound is heated to only a mere 80 degrees Fahrenheit, it become vaporized.  And strangely coincidental, in the actual public research Puck even specifically references “patients with active respiratory disease.”

The action of propylene glycol on partially desiccated bacterial droplets such as one might expect to be present in the neighborhood of coughing or sneezing patients with active respiratory disease, was tested as follows. Several kinds of bacteria, pneumococcus, hemolytic streptococcus Group A and hemolytic streptococcus Group C were suspended in fresh unsterile saliva and sprayed into the experimental room. In each instance a period of time ranging from 35 to 40 minutes was allowed to elapse before introduction of the glycolvapor…

It was found that immediately after vaporization of the glycol, a sharp decrease in number or complete disappearance of these microorganisms which had been suspended in the air for 35 to 40 minutes occurred. One experiment in which the glycol was introduced 40 minutes following the bacterial spray is shown in Table VI. These experiments also revealed the fact that all the various forms of bacteria present in normal saliva were killed by the glycol.
Dr. Puck would eventually become a world-class scientist of the highest caliber.  Of course, he had no way of knowing at the time that his research would eventually lead to the invention of a new product that would literally save millions of people from smoking-related death and disease.  In 2015, his own country’s Royal College of Physicians would publish research together with Public Health England which indicates vaping is 95 percent less harmful than smoking!
A little-to-no scientific evidence proven a link between COVID-19 and vaping.
If a person had a preexisting condition related to respiratory health issue, obviously increases the chances to have complications with the virus.
Scientist are not hundred percent sure that vaping leads to lung disease or other chronic conditions. On the other hand, cigarette smokers are at higher risk to get infected with the virus.
Smoking has more related issues such as lung and hearth diseases, also inhibits the body's ability from healing from COVID-19.
Men are more susceptible to the virus than women, more men smoke in China than on average in high-HDI countries.
More than 723000 children between 10-14 years old 
273225000 adults 15 + years old continue to use tobacco each day, every year,  more than 1952200 people are killed by using tobacco.
China is spending 392591 million Yuan = 55,361,330,560.47 USD every year.
E-cigarette users without any lung disease or condition should stick with vaporizers, and not go back to the old harmful cigarettes, vape at low temperature to protect your lungs.
COVID-19 will not spread in vape clouds, only in user coughs.
Make sure to you wash your hands regularly at least for 20 seconds.
Cough in the crook of your arm.
make sure not to touch things, virus can adhere to surfaces.
Clean and sanitize your vape with alcohol - based disinfectants.
Stay home stay healthy :-)

A Guide to Purchasing Your First Vape Pen

So you decided to switch from smoking to vaping or you simply want to look like one of the cool kids. But you never had a vape before so you do not know what your personal preferences is. Never fear! This guide will help you limit your options when you buy vape pen online for the first time. Here is a list of factors that you should consider:


How much do you want to spend?

What is your budget? Considering that you are entirely new to vaping, it is best to start off with cheap vape pens (the portable ones) for you to explore your preferences first. Then, if you already know what you want in a vape, you can start investing in a high-quality vaporizer. Portables are definitely cheaper than desktop vaporizers.


Where will you be vaping?

When you buy vaporizer online, you will see vape devices of all sizes. Some are very portable, as small as an ordinary pen. While some are bulky with lots of tools and accessories. So the question is, where will you be vaping? If you want to be able to vape on the go, then you should get a portable vaping device. But if you want your vaping experience to be a discrete one – something that you only do in the comfort and privacy of your own home, then a desktop vaping device is the better choice. 


What do you want to vape?

You can vape different concentrates – you usually have to choose between oils, vape juice, dry herb, and wax. Some vape pens for sale are made for a specific concentration while there are some that can do two different kinds of concentrates. If you are vaping for medicinal purposes though, it is best to go with a desktop vaporizer for a stronger dose and better control. Do your research before settling on a unit – you may end up purchasing something that cannot accommodate your preferred concentrate.


What is your preferred power source?

Portable vaporizers have their batteries while desktop vaporizers have to be plugged in to function. A vape pen battery can lasts two to three days (depending on how much you use it) before you should charge it again. You also have the option of carrying spare batteries with you so you do not have to worry about running out of power while on the go. But if you prefer longer vaping sessions or want to do group vaping sessions, the desktop vaporizer is your best bet.


What flavor do you want?

The thing about vaping is that it smells and taste better than cigarettes. You get a wide array of flavors to choose from. E-juices have the best vape flavors and they emit a more aromatic smell that makes it okay for you to vape while you have company around since the smell will not be as bothersome as when you smoke.


Do you have design preferences?

Vape pens come in different styles, sizes, and materials. If you plan to use it all the time, you may want to pay attention to its design. High-quality vaporizers are made out of carbon fiber or stainless steel. You can also get a cheaper high-quality model made out of Pyrex glass or ceramics. Avoid materials like titanium alloys, silicon, or Teflon because they have a low melting point. Vape pens made out of these cheap materials can be dangerous if you do not always keep an eye on them or take good care of them.



Before you go through your options in online vape stores, go through these list of factors and find the answers. This will limit the options that you have and allow you to choose the best vape pen for your needs.

How to Refill Your Vape Pen Properly

How to Refill Your Vape Pen Properly

Learning how to refill your own vape pen is an essential skill if you want to be good at vaping. Filling your vape pen may sound like an easy task but it is actually trickier than it looks depending on your device and what you are vaping. This guide will show you the proper way to refill your vape pen.



You can fill your vapor pen with liquids such as oil, e-juice, or vape juice. If you are using liquids, you will be relieved to know that this is one of the easiest things to fill your vape pen. All you have to do is pour the liquid directly into the tank. While this filling process is very simple, you still have to make sure that you do not spill. You have to keep in mind that vape pens are small in size and it is easy to spill your liquids. You can use a syringe to avoid making a mess.


Dry herbs

You can also use dry herbs on your pen vape. You have to make sure that the dry herbs are ground up. Then, you can place them in the chamber. Take note that you should not overfill the chamber or that the dry herbs are not packed tightly into the chamber. You will not be able to vape dry herbs properly if there is no space for air to pass through it. When refilling, ensure that you clean out the chamber since what is left over will be sticky from the heat and may stick to the chamber if you do not clean it out – this can affect the taste of your vapor drastically and can even restrict the airflow of your vape pen.



There is also a pen vaporizer for wax concentrates. For wax pens, you have to unscrew the mouthpiece off to expose the coil. You will need a dab tool (usually comes with the vape kit) to load the wax concentrates on the coil. Then, place the mouthpiece back in place. Take note that you should not place too much wax on your pen when refilling since wax concentrates are sticky. They may cause the airway of your vape to clog. 




General Advice for Filling Your Vape Pen

Here are some more tips to keep in mind that is applicable no matter what type of concentrate you are vaping on your cloud vape pen

  • Use tools. It helps to have tools that can guide the concentrate into your vape pen. Spillage means you are wasting your concentrates. Carry around a small kit where you can store your tools and concentrates for easy refilling anytime, anywhere.
  • Take your time. The chances of spillage is higher when you rush the whole process. 
  • Refill in a well-lit area. Refilling in a well-lit area does not only ensure that you do not spill but also that you do not place too much concentrates on your pen. Take note that over packing your pens with concentrates can overwork the device and cause it to clog or worse, burnout.
  • Seal tightly. The concentrates on your vape pens can leak out if you do not return the parts properly and seal them tightly after refilling.
  • Clean before refilling. The concentrate buildups after every use are sticky and can collect dirt and clog the airway. Even the best vape pen is not free from this reality. It is important that you clean your vape pen before refilling it with a new batch of concentrates. Take note that vape pens are electronic devices so you also have to learn the proper way to clean them to avoid any damages.


Although you can make your life easier by purchasing pre-filled cartridges, take note that this can be very expensive in the long run. You get to save more money when you learn how to refill your best pen vaporizer yourself.

Can You Really Trust E-cig Forums?

Forums, of course, are online message boards. These are places online where people who share a common interest in certain topics hang out online. In a typical forum, people ask and answer questions. People also introduce themselves. These platforms are great for vendors, service providers and other commercial players to make a name for themselves.

In fact, Facebook groups, Facebook pages, and other platforms are really just glorified versions of old-school forums and online message boards. This is why it's a good idea to visit eCig forums if you are looking for specific information about electronic cigarettes. Whether you're into vape pens or any other nicotine delivery devices, you really are putting yourself at a serious disadvantage if you neglect or consciously overlook eCig forums. These are places where people can ask very specific questions.

Let's put it this way. If you're just going to ask general questions, chances are you will be well served by a general Google search. Don't be surprised if you get the answer that you’re looking for on page 1.

Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The more specific your question or the “weirder” your question, the harder it is to get a straight answer from Google. This can be very, very frustrating. I know it sounds crazy since Google has gone through several generations of machine learning and artificial intelligence. In fact, it could be said that Google software actually learns and grows exponentially year after year.

But even with all that cutting-edge software evolutionary technology, there are several questions that simply stump Google. You can't get a straight answer. At best, you can get fragments of the answer from one website so you click on one set of results. Then you go through another set.

It can get very boring very quickly. Worse yet, you don't know whether you can trust this information because you’re just piecing it all together. You're doing things by the seat of your pants, and this can get really dangerous if you have to make some sort decision based on them. This is especially problematic if you are looking for medical information. Do you see how this works?

This is why forums are so awesome. When you ask a question in a forum, there's a high chance that people who are replying actually know what they’re talking about. In the off-chance that they are completely clueless, putting on a show or just trying to impress people, others will call them out on it.

These callouts can be blatant and “in your face” or they can be subtle. Whatever the case may be, other people will step in and give you their views. The best responses are those that are backed up by facts. You remember those, right?

Facts are crucial because, let’s face it if you’re going to have an opinion, base it on something real. Don’t base it on your feelings. Don’t base it on something bad that happened to you. Don’t base it on fantasies you have of how the world should be. Instead, base it on facts. Base it on something that all of us could agree on.

That’s how you tell really great forum responses. Great forum replies are based on solid facts. Maybe they would link you to some sort of study. Perhaps they would break down some sort of statistical analysis of a survey. Maybe they would show pictures that diagram what they’re talking about. Whatever the case may be, you get facts and you get clear logic.

I’m not trying to get you all excited here. I’m not trying to pump you up only to let you down. Please understand that the quality of the answers you get can vary tremendously from forum to forum.

Some forums tend to be populated by people who talk before they think. They basically just repeat what they’ve heard in the past or they let their negative attitude get the better of them, and you get what you get. Other people are very close-minded, and no amount of facts would make them change their opinion and they produce certain types of opinions.

There is always a risk that you will run into these or variations of these. Still, when you do enough searching through forums, quality responses become quite obvious. They rise to the top.

One particular set of forums may be worth your time. These are E-cig Reddit sub-forums. They’re awesome because they have lots of material. I’m talking about thousands upon thousands of posts.

They also have very granular information. That’s a fancy word for saying that their information is very, very specific. How specific? We’re talking about specific product launches pushed out by brands. These brands are both well-known as well as upstarts and up and coming stars.

Whatever the case may be, the mere size of Reddit sub-forums enables you to enjoy a tremendous amount of choice as far as the information you can choose to believe and process. A lot of their posts have pictures and videos, and their questions on discussions are very targeted. You’re not going to get the same basic question of “Which eCig should I get?” repeated a million times over.

Instead, you get breakdowns of different questions. You also see different situations discussed. This way, if you run into some sort of weird situation or unique problem when you look at the posts made regarding that situation, you quickly realize that your situation is not as unique as you previously thought.

But are Reddit E-cig Sub-Forums All They are Cracked Up to Be?

As I’ve mentioned above, it’s very easy to get excited about Reddit eCig sub-forums. It seems that they are a great resource because of all the advantages and features I have described above. The problem is, just like any other online forum, there can be a disconnect between our expectations and what we really get. In other words, we want all sorts of things but this doesn’t necessarily mean that we will get them from one place.

However, despite all of this, I would suggest that you still start with Reddit eCig sub-forums. At the very least, you’re starting with something that is very targeted, very specific and is more likely to give you the information you're looking for. Compare this with just doing a random Google search. It may well turn out that you would get directed to Reddit eCig sub-forums anyway; but if you weren’t, you probably would be wasting a lot of time chasing down information that you could have easily found instantly on Reddit.

Despite its comparative value, these sub-forums suffer from the structural weaknesses that almost all other forums suffer from. Reddit is not immune to these forum-related problems. These problems existed in the past and caused a lot of headaches; they’re crossing a lot of problems today, and they probably will continue to be a hassle long into the future.

They are just part of the game. There’s really nothing you can do about them because whenever you have an online platform where people share information, there will always be “problematic people” entering the mix.

These range from people who are simply clueless and spouting off information that they know nothing about.

There are also people who just repeat stuff that is irrelevant just because they just want to feel smart.

Other people are very stubborn and don't want to be educated.

Other people are very negative that they always call you out and make you feel dumb.

Finally, there are scammers. These are people who are not interested in the truth. Instead, their agenda is the complete opposite. They're making money spreading lies. They're making money tearing down brands and propping up brands that are not as worthy.

You get a mix of people, and their byproducts in the form of the posts that they produce will always be there. This is not going to go away because this is part of the human condition. There's a lot of self-policing involved as I mentioned above when people call each other out but, at the end of the day, sometimes you end up a day late and a buck short.

It's a good idea to be aware of the structural weaknesses of Reddit eCig sub-forums and online message boards in general. By being prepared for these and being aware of how things could go south, you can at least salvage usable information. This way, the time you spend on these sub-forums would not be a complete and total waste.

What problems are we talking about? Why are these forums not what they appear and how do they disappoint people?

First of all, there's a lot more than meets the eye. It may seem like somebody is answering a question, but it turns out that the person has an agenda. If somebody is acting dumb and spouting up the wrong information time and time again, there's a point in time where you basically have to be suspicious and ask yourself “Is this person just really suffering from a low IQ or is this person intentional in misleading readers regarding a specific brand, a specific device or some other thing.

Also, there's a lot of conflict of interest. This is most common when it comes to reviews. When people post a review of a product, you would think that this person did your homework for you. Well, they’re not the Mother Teresa of the Internet. They're not going through all the time, effort and energy of producing a review just because they had nothing else better to do.

You can bet that they are making money off that review because it turns out that a lot of online reviews, I would say more than 50% of them, are positive. They’re positive for a reason. They’re not positive because they have actually identified a product that you should buy.

Instead, they are positive because they want people to trust the review enough and to be “educated” by the review to buy the product that they feature. Do you see the conflict here? Their primary interest is to line their pockets with affiliate commissions. They couldn’t care less about you finding the best product for your needs. Your interest is to find the right product to solve a problem.

Unfortunately, you can’t rely on these reviews because their interest is to earn a commission. If you think that’s a cause for concern, wait, it gets even worse.

Just like any other forum, there is always fraudulent activity. Now, I may not be blatant. People might not slap you with it. It’s not something that’s so obvious that you can spot it 10 miles away, but it’s always there. Either people leave out information or they invent stuff. There’s also a lot of fake activity.

It’s not unusual for a product to launch and, all of a sudden, all these random, completely new accounts keep praising this item. In many cases, you can read between the lines and you can easily tell that these comments are fake because if the product just launched, some of the commenters might say that they’ve been using it for years. How can that happen? It doesn’t make any sense. Do you see how this works?

There are definitely a lot of headaches with forums. I’m not singling out eCig sub-forums on Reddit and elsewhere, but you have to understand what could go wrong. For you to get the gold, you have to first go through the fire of the refining process. That’s how it works. If you just think that you just show up on these websites, pick up a recommendation and get the product that you deserve, you are probably going to have another thing coming.

The Ever-Present Problem of Electronic Cigarette Conflicts of Interest

Conflicts of interest are so pervasive and can be so damaging that they deserve their own discussion in this article. Electronic cigarette reviews or eCig reviews usually suffer from conflicts of interest. This is not a surprise. This is nothing new because, as I have mentioned, there are tons of product reviews on the Internet and half the time, you really cannot take them at face value because they suffer from conflicts of interest at some level or other.

Your interest, once again, is to get the very best product that solves your problems. The interest of the person who produced that review is to get a commission. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.

You have to be clear about this conflict and read between the lines with this conflict in mind. That’s how you tease out the information that is actually useful to you as you try to make an informed decision about your next purchase.

Conflict of Interest Also Applies to Regular Message Boards

Please understand that this issue pretty much applies across the board. The interesting issue is all about a reviewer who’s pushing you to buy, pushing you to trust fake reviews and pushing you to read self-interested garbage like comments, replies, and whatnot. See clearly through these. There are lots of fake social signals being sent out by people who are self-interested.

Be on the Lookout for Electronic Cigarette Fraud

Just like with any other online fraud on the Internet, you have to look for fake reviews, fake products for bait-and-switch, fake eCig coupon codes, fake eCig accessories and e-juice, and fake electronic cigarette launches. That’s a lot of fake stuff.

Unfortunately, they’re all over the place. If you are not paying attention, it may be only a matter until you too get victimized. It’s not going to be pleasant. You work hard for your money and it really would be a shame for you not to get the full value of all that cash that you worked so hard for.

There are many tricks people play online. What’s particularly annoying is the bait-and-switch. It’s not unusual for top-ranked or very well-known electronic cigarette brands to be advertised for a song on certain websites or featured in certain reviews. By a song, I’m talking about almost free.

However, when you try to buy it, it turns out that you have to jump through certain hoops and you might have to buy certain things, and it turns into a headache. Welcome to the world of bait-and-switch.

If you think that’s bad enough, wait, it gets even worse.

Look for Fake Activity

Another way to tease out reviews or message board reviews that suffer from a conflict of interest is to pay attention to the activity swirling around that content. If you noticed that people are commenting with the same basic message, you should be suspicious. It may well turn out that software is “writing” those responses to try to bait into believing the main review.

Also, pay attention to the comment’s writing style. These comments may not be saying the same thing but if they look like they were written by the same person, you should sit up and pay attention. You should be suspicious.

Pay attention to which accounts make the comments. If it turns out that most of the messages are coming from one account, you can safely discount the validity of that account and what that account has to say.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line is simple. Beware of getting ripped off due to fake activities. Fake content is bad enough. Fake social signals and fake online activities can be murder on your budget.

If you’re looking for the best electronic cigarette product, you definitely have our work cut out for you. Still, online message boards for eCigs, vape pens, and any other electronic cigarette-related products are definitely great resources; however, you have to take them with a huge block of salt.

Your Complete Guide to Electronic Cigarette Coupon Codes

One of the best ways to save a lot of money on products that you buy online is through coupon codes. You may be thinking why would manufacturers or retailers and distributors hand out coupon codes? It boils down to promotions because, given the tremendous popularity of electronic cigarettes, vape pens, vaping devices as well as the rise of medical and recreational marijuana, there’s a huge demand for these types of devices.

Given the tremendous amount of manufacturers often based in China entering the US market, it’s easy to see electronic cigarette coupon codes have become quite popular. They need to establish a foothold. They need to find a marketing avenue to put their brand front and center.

If you’re not going to use a coupon code, if you’re not going to engage in some sort of creative discounting, you’re branding message is probably going to fall between the cracks. In fact, a new manufacturer may find itself struggling against a sea of other equally desperate and hungry manufacturers.

Please understand that the struggle for the US market share for electronic cigarettes is fierce and it changes on an almost daily basis. This is why offering cigarette coupon codes is a no-brainer for a lot of distributors, online players as well as manufacturers.

You Can Save a Lot of Money Using Product Code Coupons

Electronic cigarette coupon codes should be viewed in context. You should look at these coupon codes based on whatever else is going on, on the Internet. Since everybody’s getting into drop shipping and everybody’s playing around with some sort of online e-commerce presence, it’s easy to see why product coupon codes are almost everywhere online. It’s as if every manufacturer of whatever product line either has a specific discounted website or there is a general coupon code that applies to their products.

The truth is coupon codes are popular precisely because they work. They are a good way of letting new players in the market introduce themselves to new consumers without diluting their brand. This is the genius of a coupon code.

You’re not saying to your market that your brand is cheap and that you should only buy your brand if it’s priced within a certain range. That is financial suicide for new players. You don’t want to be viewed as a “discount brand.” That’s a kiss of death.

Instead, you highlight what’s so awesome about your brand and you then give people an “introductory” coupon code. It’s obvious that this introductory period is actually going to last several years. The good news is you get out from under the public impression that your brand is somehow some way “cheap.” You don’t want to do that.

Given this dynamic, it’s easy to understand why coupon codes are so popular. They apply across all product and service categories. They’re also great at motivating third-party promoters like affiliates. In fact, so many people are so excited about coupon codes that you would think that they are the best thing since sliced bread when it comes to online marketing and promotion. Unfortunately, not everything that glitters is old.

The Problem with Coupon Codes

The problem with a lot of coupon codes on the Internet is saturation. Seriously. Consumers are not dumb. At first, they might click on every banner that they see but, after a while, they wise up. They become more selective.

As consumers get younger and younger, this “education time frame” gets shorter and shorter. Back in 1996, whenever you put up a banner, people would instinctively click it because it’s new; they haven’t seen it before. But now, good luck getting banner clicks.

The same applies to coupon codes. When they first rolled out, everybody jumped on despite the fact that they offered little savings, that a lot of them were fake and that a lot of them were actually disseminated by websites that are fake or fraudulent.

The problem with all of this is that when people get burned, they become gun-shy. They really do. They’re not as eager as before; they look before they leap and, worse yet, they become very demanding. In other words, there’s a backlash against the abuse that happened before.

It is no surprise that coupon codes, in general, are declining in popularity. I’m not saying that they’re dying out. They’re still all over the place. However, people are not instinctively asking for a discount code. Instead, they’re doing their homework because they’ve been around the block a few times. They know that, in many cases, there are no savings for the product that you’re looking for.

Let’s put it this way. You go to a coupon code website. They feature all sorts of coupon codes for blenders. Let’s assume you’re looking for a blender. The problem is, despite this wealth of coupon codes offering 10% all the way to 50% off blenders, there is no coupon code for the specific product or brand you’re looking for. In other words, you just wasted your time.

This is the problem with coupon codes and the electronic cigarettes’ market is not any different. The eCig market is not immune to the vulnerabilities of coupon codes. As a consumer, you have to be wise about this. You have to know what’s going on. That’s why you need to read the step-by-step guide to using eCig coupon codes below.

How to Use E-Cig Coupon Codes the Right Way to Maximize Your Savings

Step #1: Pick the right eCig

The first thing that you need to do is to pick the eCig product that is the right one for you. This is, of course, subjective. Everybody is different. Everybody looks at the world in different ways. Everybody has different experiences. All these differences add up in terms of our product preferences.

We also have different needs. Ask ten different people why they use e-cigarettes and you would get ten different answers. So, pick the right eCig that makes sense as far as your personal circumstances and preferences are concerned.

Step #2: Pick the right brand

Now that you have a clear understanding of what type of eCig features you’re looking for, the next step is to look for a brand that specializes in as many of those features as possible. Maybe there’s a brand that is very big on durability. Perhaps there’s another brand that’s very big on nicotine delivery efficiency. Whatever feature you are looking for, make sure you look for a brand that has developed quite a name for itself delivering on that feature.


Step #3: Pick the right model

Once you have pinpointed the right brand that specializes in the eCig features that you’re looking for, your job becomes much easier because once you identify the brand, you then just go to their website and look at their current model line-up. This is really a matter of figuring out which features go with which, and which packages to choose from. It’s fairly straightforward from this point on.


Step #4: Check out different vendors


Now that you know the brand and the model you’re looking for, now is the time to look for a vendor. There are tons of online vendors of electronic cigarettes, eCigs, vape pens and other nicotine delivery devices. That's not the problem.

The problem is telling them apart. You must have a game plan so you don't waste a tremendous amount of time, effort and energy telling these different vendors apart.


Step #5: Scope out coupon codes based on vendors


Once you have picked out a shortlist of high-quality vendors that are known to deliver on time and at the right prices without ripping anybody off, the next step is to look for discount codes. The good news is that coupon codes are so pervasive that you are bound to find at least one vendor.

If you're still stumped or you're kind of confused about the whole process, you can look into “eCig-City coupon code.” You can also try “eCig-City coupon” or “eCigExpress coupon.” These are search terms that you should put into Google.

Don't end with these searches. You will find other search terms. Use those and keep finding other search terms until you get the deal that you're looking for.


The Keys to Success


I understand that you may think that this whole process is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Considering the tremendous amount of discount coupon codes out there as well as the pervasive risk of fake coupon codes or rip-offs, this is still worth doing. The truth is you can go through a succession of electronic cigarettes or eCigs or vaping devices is or even water pipes in a relatively short period. It depends on how much you enjoy vaping or using electronic cigarettes.

Still, you want to get the biggest bang for your buck. You worked hard for your money. Isn’t it time that you actively guarded the value that you're getting for every hard-earned dollar that you’re spending?

If that’s your mindset, then you have to pay attention to these keys to success. Don’t think that just because your buddy gave you an eCig-City coupon code that is the product for you. Don't think that just because somebody gave you an eCigExpress coupon code that you should automatically take them up on their recommendation.

The key to success here is pretty straightforward. It's all about you. Seriously. It's all about you, your preferences, your needs, and your personal circumstances. The bottom line is you have to pick out what works for you.

Sometimes you may have to let go of desiring a 50% discount because the vendor giving out such hefty discounts is not all that trustworthy. It may well turn out that they have all sorts of customer service nightmare stories. You don't want to do that. You're trying to make your life easier here. You're trying to make things more convenient. You're not trying to create unnecessary drama for yourself.

If you notice that there are a lot of negative reviews about a particular distributor or vendor, it's probably a good idea to steer clear regardless of how sexy their discount program may be. Sure, 50% seems like you’re saving a lot of money, but how much is your time and peace of mind worth? That's exactly you will be putting on the line if you do business with a vendor that's really not on the up and up. Seriously.

I wish I could tell you that all vendors could be trusted. I wish I could tell you that all online stores deserve your money, but I’d be lying to you if I were to tell you that. The sad reality is that there are a lot of fly-by-night operations out there who have only one mission. Their mission is to separate people's hard-earned money from their customers. It's really sad.

Do yourself a big favor. First, pick out what works for you. Second, pick out a coupon source after you have vetted it thoroughly. What do I mean by that?

Check online reviews. Check if they have better business bureau ratings. Check for some sort of external third-party validation regarding their business practices.

Whatever the case may be, compare them with all other vendors that you are considering. The truth is the trustworthiness of a vendor is really comparative. If you’re in an industry, for example, thankfully, the electronic cigarette industry is not such an industry, where everybody steals, then your attitude should be “How do I pick the vendor that steals the least?” Do you understand how this works? Good.

It's all comparative. As much as possible, look for a vendor or a coupon source that is the most trustworthy. The problem with coupon websites is that a lot of them are fake, and the ones that are real often get faked out. In other words, there are promoters sending out fake coupons, and some of these online resources end up unknowingly publishing fraudulent coupon codes.

This is just part of the game. Understand how this works and then pick a product covered by discount coupons that work for you.

The good news is that a little-advanced planning works. Again, you worked hard for your money. It's time that you squeeze every red cent’s worth of value out of your hard-earned cash.
