Default E-Cigs: What the cool geeks are smoking these days



Technology is awesome.

E-cigs are battery-powered devices that take propylene glycol (or vegetable glycol, or a mixture of the two) and vaporize them by use of an atomizer. The resulting vapor is then inhaled, and has pretty much the same feel (warmth, flavor, etc) as regular smoking. However, unlike regular tobacco, what you're inhaling is pretty much completely safe. (And I'm only saying "pretty much" to cover my ass )

The device itself can be bought online, and ranges from $30-$100... but as DH (that brave, foolish bastard) discovered you can actually buy one of these from your local 7/11. For $20, even. And it actually works pretty damn well... or at least ours have, so far. (Yeah, I got mine there too.)

The glycol (also called e-liquid, or just "liquid" if you're really cool) can come in a VERY wide variety of flavors; and can have lots, little, or absolutely no nicotine mixed in it. Right now I'm buying my liquid from http://www.vaporbomb.com/ . My first order was 4 bottles- wild cherry, creme soda, kona coffee, and a Red Bull-ish flavor. (They threw in a bottle of white chocolate for free, too.) Cost me $20, and it'll probably last me a good month or two (or more, I dunno at this point) of HEAVY use between me and BB. Pretty neat considering pre-filled refill cartridges usually sell for $15 for 10 refills. (That lasted me like...3-4 days, tops)

Anyhow, Ebo (the first guy I knew to get into this), DH, and myself have been taking a heavy interest in this, so I thought I'd start a thread to share the love and the info.

Fuck, this is probably the most I've written about anything since 10th grade.

edit...FROM THE FUTURE: don't buy these crap ecigs from 7-11, read onward for suggestions on better e-cig models and retailers (or just message me and ask)

There is Menthol that you can get at 7-11. They sell 3 kinds:
1) e-hookah (black colored, same as what I have)
2) Cig regular (colors look like a cig)
3) Mint or something (that is the menthol)

Other than the color of the out side the only difference in the kit is the cartridges it comes with.

Because I am a lazy impatient bastard. After I knew I liked these, I bought a second one. So I always have one fully charged and I've rinsed down the atomizer.

do you get addicted or is this a way to not smoke but still get the same feeling.

You don't get the same THC levels in vapor as you do in actually combusting the plant matter, but I guess it is way better for you.

If I were to ever get a vape, it would probably be something like this:

Not sure if this would really help me quit though. I'm willing to try but it just seems like a pacifier rather than a solution.

It really depends a lot on your own personality when trying to quit smoking. If its just the pure addiction to nicotine, you'll most likely, like everyone else in the world, be addicted and crave a cig or something there of, for the rest of your life. Its about the same as being an alcoholic.

To my point. You can start off with nicotine and work your way down to no nicotine, or just start and stay with no nicotine to at least settle the "habbit" part of the addiction. So when you do get that itch for a cig, you can have one without worrying about wanting to pick up the habbit again. I've read a few things about people using e-cigs for quiting. But in all honesty, I just see it as a better way to continue doing something you already enjoy.

So the 7-11 ones are good? I was going to buy some off dealextreme.com, but a lot of reviews are that they break, etc.

They sell the e-liquid too btw.


I hate taking cig breaks while on the computer, so this would be good for that.

Pretty much. Pre-filled cartridges are such a ripoff. I bought one pack of 10 and they lasted me a couple of days. Now I just use them as backup/spare carts.

All you really gotta do is get some needle-nose pliers and use them to remove the inner cart (which holds the polyfill and liquid) from the inside of the cartridge. I recommend stripping all the remaining foil and shrinkwrap (which was used to seal the prefilled carts shut to prevent them from drying out) from the lip of the inner cart when you first refill the cartridge, since there'll still be a lot left. Hate when that shit melts on the atomizer.

Refilling takes a bit of practice. I usually take out the polyfill (and replace it if I'm using a different/new flavor), drop a few drops in the bottom, then stuff the polyfill back in and add ~5 more drops.

BB said cherry reminded her of cough syrup. Well, I like the taste of cough syrup...it's why I can't stop drinking energy drinks

Rude- with Priority Mail it got here ~2 days after I received notice that it'd been shipped.

So, a cautionary tale. I bought a second Xhale last Friday. Came home, put it on to charge while I smoked my first one... but my first one chose that moment to fry out its airflow sensor on the battery. It'd charge but it wouldn't activate when I sucked in. Bummer. So I took the second Xhale, put on a cart, and inhaled. Barely any vapor. Long story short, the second Xhale's atomizer was pretty much DOA. First one's atomizer and second's battery worked just fine together though so I still had one working ecig, but now I'd have to do what I'd been dreading- go back to 7/11 and attempt an exchange.

Needless to say, the clerks at 7/11 are a surly, suspicious lot and didn't want to make the exchange, even though I had my receipt for it. I had to point to the back of the starter kit container and show them where it says "return to retailer with original receipt for immediate replacement" before they'd do it, and after they told me "No more exchanges for this, ever." So I guess if my working battery/atomizer (I snuck the busted atomizer into the exchange with the busted battery) needs replacement I'll have to send BB to make the exchange.

moral of this story: if you buy an Xhale and like it, buy a second one as a backup...from a DIFFERENT 7/11.
