………..No – Sorry. The Australian Government has declared it illegal for Australian vendors to sell anything containing nicotine except cigarettes and NRT (Nicotine Replacement Therapy) quit products. HOWEVER – Australians over 18 years of age are legally allowed to purchase e-liquids containing nicotine for (personal use only) from overseas companies. If you think you require nicotine in your e-liquid (many do to avoid nicotine withdrawals) then we recommend NicQuid who are a well respected established USA manufacturing company shipping to Australia. Click the NicQuid banner above to see their range of various strength nicotine e-liquids.………..
These are now often referred to as “cig-a-likes”. This is now old technology and electronic cigarettes have improved dramatically since the advent of clearomizer tank technology with bigger batteries. Whilst they do work the battery power is weak and they don’t hold much charge. There is a LED light on the end which lights up when the user takes a puff. The main connection threads often differ meaning that you are stuck buying that brand’s cartomizers and flavours. Cartomizer technology has been improved by the advent of clearomizers and eGo batteries have a greater power output and store more charge.However, for those not yet ready to jump in to the bigger batteries just yet we highly recommend the EMILI kit………..
………..The ‘e-liquid’ used in electronic cigarettes is made up of 2 main ingredients PG and VG (Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin). There is also some food flavouring and nicotine (although not essential). PG has been around since 1950 and was first used in medicines as a germicide and still is to today. (Asthma inhalers are a prominent example). It is also used in many of the foods on our supermarket shelves for it’s flavour enhancing qualities as is VG. Compare that to the hundreds (or is it thousands ?) of chemicals produced by cigarette smoke and it’s easy to understand why E-cigarettes are proving far less harmful and amazingly effective in helping smokers to quit, often cold turkey. There is no carbon monoxide, no tar, no smell, and the COST is only a fraction of that of cigarettes particularly in Australia.………..
………..For the average user a 10ml bottle should last about 5-7 days.………..
………..This can vary dramatically depending on variables such as the type of coil, the viscosity of the e-liquid, battery voltage output and frequency of use. Basic non rebuildables such as the CE-4 & CE-5 can last over a month in the case of some users but usually around 2-4 weeks depending on usage.………..
………..We recommend changing your coils every 2 to 3 weeks or when you notice a slightly burnt taste. Whilst they still may seem to work OK do not continue to use them.………..
………..Manufacturers generally state eGo batteries will last for approx. 350 charges before degrading. Charging time is approx. 2.5 – 3 hours and with average to heavy usage will need a charge once a day.………..
………..A humungous amount!Roughly $10 per week say $520 per year should cover costs for an average vaper. Now multiply your weekly spend on cigarettes by 52, then subtract $520 from that figure and the result is your approx. savings over just one year. Not quite enough for a deposit on a house perhaps but not that far off either.………..
………..Anything inhaled other than fresh air is surely not ideal. Therefore we will never say that they are 100% safe to use. However, whilst there is yet no scientific proof that using e-cigarettes is harmful there is plenty of evidence on the harm caused by cigarettes.What has been established beyond doubt is that electronic cigarettes are far less harmful.………..
………..Most e-cigarettes use lithium ion rechargeable batteries with sophisticated circuitry containing an overload cut off feature.However, batteries are a hazardous product and as such should be treated with care according to manufacturer guidelines.*Note: The atomizer of an electronic cigarette heats the e-liquid at about 80 degrees to produce vapour. A lit cigarette burns at over 800 degrees which causes a chemical reaction with the atmosphere thereby creating over 4000 unwanted chemicals.………..
………..Some vapour is usually left behind in the mouth piece after each puff and this condenses when it cools and forms small liquid droplets. Unless cleaned (eg. with a tissue) fairly often this can build up to a point where some will find it’s way into the users mouth. If it is a lot of liquid then stop immediately. The air hole has flooded and needs clearing OR the unit has not fired when the user takes a draw.………..
