This rebranding has had a big impact on the manufacturers products, though. The Seminole eCigs review is the culmination of a two-week test of the companys entire product range. While there were a handful of negatives for the brand, the overall review was quite positive. The review gave the brand high marks in quality and appearance, as well as in vapor production and decent battery life.

The Swansea based firm which itself employs 14 people at its distribution centre and high street stores, has joined a growing Europe wide lobby against a Brussels proposal to class e-cigs as medicines in the same way as nicotine gums and patches which help smokers quit. E-cigarettes contain nicotine but vaporise waste products and manufacturers claim they are an alternative to standard tobacco cigarettes which produce damaging tar and smoke as well as help smokers cut down or quit. Its estimated around 1.3 million people use them in the UK with the market expected to reach 250m per year in 2014. ECigaretteDirect.co.uk co-founder James Dunworth buys his products from China where they are made under licence and distributes them through an online site and a high street store. He said: Classing e-cigarettes as medicines will destroy businesses such as ours as the tests required will cost about 1m per product and we have 30 different flavours. It just would not be viable.

Eonsmoke Electronic Cigarettes Reaches 15,000 Retail Locations in USA
“Eonsmoke has become a regional powerhouse in the electric cigarette business because of our differentiated look, competitive margins, and diversified flavor line up,” says Oleg Spiridonov, Vice President of Eonsmoke, LLC. “We’re starting to go national by opening distribution relationships and people are really starting to notice; the company is starting to get intense investor interest after last month’s major Big Tobacco news of investment into electronic cigarettes.” Last month in June 2013, Phillip Morris announced they will launch their own electronic cigarette brand MarkTen in August of the same year. R.J. Reynolds has announced similar news with their brand, Vuse which is expected to go national later this year. Lorillard already sells an e-cigarette under the Blu Cigs trademark after the acquisition was made in April 2012. “The brand is really starting to expand nationally as we pursue an active growth strategy which involves continuous product development investment and vast marketing expenses,” says Michael Tolmach, the Chief Executive Officer of Eonsmoke, LLC.

GREATGLAS, INC. to Offer Vapor Tanks for E-Cigs
With the push of a button, the e-cigarette heats a nicotine-infused propylene glycol fluid, turning it into a vapor that’s inhaled. E-cigarette users call the act vaping, not smoking. These e-cigarettes, or e-cigs for short, often look like real cigarettes, but without the lingering smoky odor.

Food and Drug Administration is considering classifying the devices as tobacco products, a move that could result in a significant tax burden on people using them, he said. If FDA action made the devices subject to the state’s tobacco tax, it could make the e-cigarette equivalent of a pack of cigarettes taxed at $8.50 to $9, Jackson said. “What we don’t want to do is put a higher tax on a less-harmful product,” he said. Jackson said his brother has used an e-cigarette to gradually reduce his nicotine dependency. He hasn’t used a cigarette in three or four months, Jackson said. “I have seen first-hand how they can help,” he said.

E-cigarettes: the new fracking
Websites for e-cigarettes note how they do not produce the smell, ash, and smoke that have led to workplace and public-space bans for tobacco cigarettes. But it is far from a clean smoke. E-cigarettes contain liquefied nicotine, which is heated into a vapor that is inhaled. Nicotine is addictive. Many smokers say they smoke e-cigarettes as a bridge to quitting.

Electronic Cigarette Uk Supplier Says Policy Must Be Changed
The proposals will go to a plenary vote and if they pass this, will go on to negotiations with member states of the council. A spokesperson for Childers said they were pretty confident the parliament vote will be strong on the proposals, but that the battle is against the member states. The hope is that the changes, if they are approved, would come into effect between 2015 and 2016. However, this depends on whether the council and parliament can come to an agreement on the proposals before the end of the life of the current parliament.

E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that create a vapor mist from a heated liquid solution when the user inhales on a mouthpiece. The solution, or e-juice, and vapor mist, which looks like smoke, typically contain nicotine, but users can regulate the amount. Thats why some vapers say e-cigarettes have helped them quit tobacco and wean themselves off nicotine altogether. Research released in late June by Italys University of Catania lends support to those claims. The study found that 13 percent of participants who used high-dose e-cigarettes quit smoking.

Electronic cigarettes could rekindle battles over smoking in public
Canaccord’s Eddy Hargreaves and Alicia Forry said: We think electronic cigarettes will prove to be the most significant development in the history of the organised Tobacco industry, stretching back some 200 years. We expect consumers worldwide to migrate from tobacco smoking to e-cigarettes at an accelerating rate through 2020. We estimate the e-cigarette market will grow from $2bn in 2012 to $3bn in 2013 (tobacco is approximately $700bn). In the longer term, the total combined market will shrink at a more rapid rate than most investors envisage as e-cigarettes wean smokers off tobacco, but do not attract new users into the overall category. Winners and losers will emerge, but are hard to predict at this relatively early stage in e-cigarettes’ development, and there will be margin pressure in the short term across the board as companies race for share. This new uncertainty, and the faster long-term decline of tobacco which we predict, should cause investors to reassess their holdings in the sector.

Duarte has just passed an urgency ordinance to adopt a moratorium on smoke shops that sell vapor, or e-cigarettes, tobacco and smoking paraphernalia. In the past 18 months the number of smoke shops in the city has doubled to six and inquiries have been pouring in the past few months for shops that specialize in vapor cigarettes, city officials said. “Our main concern if this were a trend that were to continue, we want to make sure it’s properly regulated,” said Craig Hensley, Duarte’s community development director. The city will be focused on zoning issues and such shops to schools.

Electronic cigarettes sprout on Boston shelves
Both the tooling to mold the new dispenser at 1/2 cent each and the automated filling equipment to produce over 2,000 finished refill units per hour are included in the sale. Designed to work with existing electronic cigarette systems, the patented e-juice dispenser is a pre-filled, hermetically sealed pipette with a precise, long-neck dropper and soft squeeze bulb for control of dispensing even the smallest singular drops of e-juice. A clear, highly flexible resin is used in construction to allow users increased visibility and control regarding the positioning and amount of liquid dispensed. This is coupled with a suction feature to prevent spillage and remove excess liquid to prevent cartridges from becoming dangerously full or injuring the circuitry of the device. Further, the amount of e-juice that can be stored in the novel container is well below the amount toxic for adults and children.

The push comes amid a reignited national debate about the safety of electronic cigarettes, following last months announcements from the countrys two other big tobacco companies, R.J. Reynolds and Altria, that they too will be jumping into the market. Nikysha Harding, director of the Boston Public Health Commissions Tobacco Prevention and Control Program, said the city has issued 61 permits to sell the battery-operated devices since March, more than five times the number awarded during the same period last year.
