How do e-cigarettes work?

E-cigarettes heat liquid that generally contains nicotine, flavors, and other additives using a battery to produce an aerosol. Users breathe in this aerosol.

Can e-cigarettes really help me stop smoking?

Yes. Even though this area of research is still new, there are many studies that show that vaping is a valid method to quit smoking, when compared to conventional methods like nicotine patches and chewing gums. (Pound CM, Zhang JZ, Kodua AT, et al., 2020)

What nicotine level should I start with?

This really depends on how much you smoked and what type of device you are using. We recommend starting with a higher nicotine level (like 20 mg or below) and working your way down if needed. Higher nicotine levels can be found in stronger liquids, but it’s important to remember that you can always reduce the nicotine level if it’s too strong.

Should I use liquid with nicotine to quit smoking?

There’s evidence (Dimert et al., 2019) that nicotine-based vaping products are more effective as smoking cessation aids than those without nicotine. Trying a liquid with nicotine out could very well help you quit smoking.

What should I do if my vape pen malfunctions?

We recommend switching the battery off immediately if your device begins malfunctioning, and then taking it to an authorized dealer or manufacturer for assistance. If you experience physical discomfort or adverse health effects while using the product (such as rapid heart rate, shortness of breath etc.), stop vaping and seek immediate medical attention.

Do not attempt to modify any part of the device or use replacement parts not intended for vaping – this can be extremely dangerous for both you and those around you!

E-cigarette chargers pose a risk of fire and electric shock (particularly when used in areas where they might come into contact with water), so be sure to use the charger that came with your device and do not leave it plugged in overnight or when you’re not around.

What do I need to know about storing my e-liquids?

E-liquids are flammable, so keep them away from heat or flame at all times. Never store e-liquids in your car (even if the windows are down) or any other hot, humid area. To best ensure freshness, keep your e-liquid bottles in a cool dark place like the fridge!

What is vaping?

Vaping is the term used to describe using an e-cigarette or vape pen. Vape pens and e-cigarettes both consist of a battery, heating coil, and a tank (or reservoir) that holds liquid – usually containing nicotine, flavorings and other additives. E-cigarettes produce vapor instead of smoke when the liquid is heated.

How long will vaping take to kick in?

Vaping usually takes around 20 minutes for the full effects to be felt - but this also depends on how much you smoked before switching to e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes usually start working once they’re filled with enough liquid (about 1 ml), so make sure your tank is full before vaping!

How do I clean my tank?

It’s important to make sure your vaping gear is kept clean to prevent harmful chemicals from leaching into vapor. If you use disposable cartridges, be sure to change them regularly for optimal results. When cleaning tanks with removable parts (like the Aspire Nautilus), follow our step by step guide .

Can I vape with a cold?

Can I keep using my old cigarettes?

There is absolutely no need to continue smoking once you have started vaping as they serve the same purpose. You can, however, use a cigarette as a stop-gap to help you quit smoking cigarettes completely before switching to a vape pen.
