What are the benefits of the electronic cigarette?
Everyone knows the health risks of a tobacco cigarette. E-cigarettes offer a harmless smoking substitute, helping many people effectively quit smoking tobacco. With an e-cigarette, smokers can light up anyplace, anytime.

What is the significance in the fact that the e-cigarettes are nicotine-free?
According to the World Health Organization, e-cigarettes are an acceptable form of nicotine replacement therapy. Lacking the nicotine that makes cigarettes addictive to most smokers, e-cigarettes are an ideal substitute.

What goes on inside an electronic cigarette?
After charging via a USB battery, e-cigarettes can be sucked, giving the sensation of smoking. The process of inhaling (sucking) is detected by the e-cigarette. This, in turn, brings the e-cigarette's lithium ion battery to life. An atomizer then charges and heats up, vaporizing the liquid solution within the e-cigarette mouthpiece.

Why are e-cigarettes better than regular cigarettes?
With no smoke, nicotine, or carcinogens, e-cigarettes are an ideal replacement for traditional cigarettes, allowing you to enjoy smoking, without actually lighting up.

Usually, you can smoke an e-cigarette anywhere you want, as they produce no smoke, no carcinogens, and no smell.

It takes 2 - 3 hours for a battery to completely charge. A battery can last up to 24-hours. This does, however, depend upon your smoking habits.

How do I know when to order refills for cartridges?
When you need to refill the cartridges depends upon how much you smoke. When the water vapor volume lessens, this means the cartridge needs changing or the battery needs charging.
