  1. 1. 55 Home Contact Disclaimer Terms Cheap Ciggies Helping you find the cheapest ecigs! ProVari Review Not long ago, a reader sent me an email saying that, with all of the e-cigarette reviews I’ve written and all of the hardware available to me, it must be difficult to choose a best e-cigarette. He wanted to know what my personal vape setup is. I’ll tell you — it’s a ProVari. A ProVari Mini, to be exact. I also have the original ProVari as a backup, just in case — that’s how much I like this e-cigarette. I’m in a pretty fortunate position; as a journalist who has covered the e-cigarette industry for some time, I occasionally receive e-cigarettes that I don’t have to pay for, which allows me to keep up with the latest happenings in the field. That was the case with the ProVari. If I’d had to cough up the over $200 needed to buy the kit, I don’t know if I would have done it. The ProVari is an expensive e-cigarette and it’s hard to understand what makes it worth the money when an e-cigarette such as the Lavatube has the same specifications and costs half as much. Specifications aren’t everything, as it turns out; the ProVari is definitely the best e-cigarette mod on the market. Is it twice as good as the Lavatube, though? Read on to find out in this ProVari review. View the ProVari or ProVari Mini at Provape or Enjuice websites. Both e- cigarettes cost $159.95 for the body only or $211.95 for the full kit. If you are in Europe you will want to purchase from Enjuice. About the ProVari At this point, you might be asking yourself why anyone in their right mind would pay over $200 for an e-cigarette kit that includes virtually nothing but an e- cigarette, a couple of batteries, a charger and some cartomizers. The answer is that the ProVari is an e-cigarette marketed to experienced e-smokers — people who already have their favorite e-liquid and know what attachments and accessories they like. People who like their e-cigarettes but wish that the experience could be a little more fulfilling in terms of throat hit and flavor. The ProVari has an internal component called a “boost circuit” that converts the Ecigs on Fox News Recent Posts ProVari Review Ploom Review Green Smoke Review V2 Cigs Review Safe Cig Review Categories Ecig Blog Ecig Reviews Recent Comments Follow Me Posted on March 1, 2013 by admin LEAVE A COMMENT Generated with www.html-to-pdf.net Page 1 / 12
  2. 2. voltage received from the battery to a higher voltage that you select. The result is a more intense e-smoking experience; while a regular e-cigarette generates a little under 7 watts of total power, the ProVari generates 12 watts with a single-coil cartomizer or high-resistance atomizer and over 16 watts with a dual-coil cartomizer. If you could imagine what it would be like to use an e-cigarette that generates more than twice as much vapor as the one you’re using now, that’s essentially what using the ProVari is like. The ProVari, though, is going to be completely different — and a bit more complicated — than the e-cigarette you’re used to. Using the ProVari As is the case with most e-cigarettes, using the ProVari begins with charging the battery. The charger included with the Kit charges two batteries simultaneously, so take advantage of it; plug both batteries in and wait for the indicator lights to turn green. Next, twist the bottom cap off, insert the battery with the positive side facing up and replace the bottom cap. Now, set the voltage. Press the button five times until the screen reads “Pu.” Wait for the screen to display the current voltage and then press the button again until it reads “4.0.” Wait for the screen to clear before you continue. This is how you’ll raise the voltage in the future. If you’re using one of the Boge cartomizers included with the ProVari, fill it with a syringe or by dripping e-liquid slowly into the filler material from a bottle. When the filler is wet, twist it into the threading at the top of the e-cigarette and add a drip tip if you like. If you’re using an atomizer, twist it into the ProVari and push the drip tip into the top of the atomizer. Drip a bit of e-liquid into the drip tip and wait for it to flow down to the heating coil. Now you’re ready to go. Hold the button and puff. If the vapor tastes dry, add a bit more e-liquid. If it’s good, you can begin raising the voltage to your desired level. When you use the ProVari for the first time, I suggest raising the voltage no more than a half volt at a time until you get used to vaping at high power levels. It can really be intense at first. You’ll need to get used to tapping the button constantly as you make adjustments. The ProVari has several commands in addition to the one that raises the voltage. You can also lower the voltage, check the battery power and atomizer resistance, turn the button’s light off and turn the entire unit off. Every command requires several button presses. While this means that the ProVari has a beautiful, sleek design with just one button, it also means that you’ll be pressing that button a lot. The good news is that the ProVari remembers your last voltage setting when you switch batteries, so you won’t need to re-set it constantly.

  3. 3. So, you might be wondering, what’s this I keep hearing about a ProVari Mini? The ProVari Mini is a truly amazing device, and since it’s my primary e-cigarette it’s just about always within arm’s reach. With the ProVari Mini, you get exactly the same features as you’d get with the original ProVari, but you get them in a package that’s almost an inch shorter. Instead of a 1100 mAh battery, the ProVari Mini uses 700 mAh batteries, so you get a bit less battery life. Otherwise, it’s the same e- cigarette. That inch makes the ProVari Mini feel so much smaller than the original ProVari — I’m really a big fan. Conclusion In terms of vapor production, appearance, fit and finish, battery usage and overall experience, the ProVari is undoubtedly the best e-cigarette on the market. However, at over $200 you’ll pay a lot for the privilege of using it.  If you haven’t switched to e-smoking yet, I strongly suggest looking at V2 Cigs as their product is ideal for beginners. If you’re a heavy smoker and feel that your nicotine needs are higher than average, the Lavatube performs nearly as well as the ProVari and is much simpler to use. For other e-smokers, if you have the room in your budget, buy the ProVari and never look back. Ecig Blog, Ecig Reviews Ploom Review I must say that I was very intrigued to do The Ploom Review because its one of the newest innovations to hit the electronic cigarette industry.  It is important to note  though it that The Ploom Vaporizer is not actually an electronic cigarette, well not exactly.  Intrigued? So was I… It is basically a product inspired by the hookah and the e-cig. This product was tailor-made for those who just don’t get enough from an electronic cigarette and/or are just looking for a different experience (like a hookah-to-go!). This method is not usually preferred by heavy smokers as an everyday option, but is usually well-liked by social smokers and for those once-a-day occasions. HOW “The Ploom Vaporizer” WORKS The Ploom Vaporizer starter kits contain the following: a model one (the ‘smoking’  device), four pod packs (flavor), a case in black or white, and Butane. This is almost like a 3 alternative to electronic cigarettes and standard cigarettes – who would have thought that such a thing existed!  This device does not use  batteries but instead is heated by Butane Gas. Flavor pods which contain real tobacco, tea, and botanicals are put into the model one heating device and the heat from the Butane turns the tobacco blend into a vapor that is inhaled. The pods can then be thrown away after use. Ploom offers a carrying case that comes in either black or white that holds two pod packs and the model one unit. The cases cost $11.95 each.

  4. 4. COST AND STYLE The Ploom Vaporizer starter kit is $75 and includes a model one, four standard pod packs, and a carrying case with Butane. The model one which is your small butane- powered vaporizer, costs $40 individually.  A 12 pack of pods are $6 and one pod  usually lasts about 5-7 minutes. The Butane is sold for $4 for 1.48 oz and is enough to refill the ‘model one’ smoking device about 20 times. There are also extra mouthpieces for $5 for a 2 pack available. I get the feeling that this is a product you could sit round and share with friends. TASTE, VAPOR PRODUCTION, AND EASE OF DRAW The different flavor ‘pods’ currently available are rocket, naked, café noir, orchard,  gold, blue tea, and kick-ass mint.   My personal experience during testing was that  the vapor production is much lower than an electronic cigarette yet the flavor was still very pleasing as was the ‘hit’ I received from the device. CUSTOMER SERVICE AND SHIPMENT There is free shipping on orders over $65 and Ploom offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 1-year warranty. Whilst conducting my Ploom Review I noted that customer reviews for the Ploom Starter Kit have been mostly positive. The Ploom vaporizer is a very promising product with a potentially bright future, however one bit of advice – you do need to be careful not to burn your lips.  I found that it’s easy to put your mouth too far down the ‘barrel’ of the model one smoking device but if you’re careful and smoke it the way its meant to be smoked then its not a problem.  Also, I found that vapor  production varied from pod to pod and I’m told this is to do with the manufacturing process. Turning the device on and off can be a bit tricky also. The Ploom Vaporizer is very new and will I’m sure only get better. I believe the Model One to be a very competent addition to the market and its certainly able to offer a totally different esmoking experience that no other E cig brand can.  This innovation comes at a  price; I reckon it will average out as roughly the same cost as smoking traditional cigarettes, so not a cheaper alternative.  Probably not just yet a product for  everyday use but definitely great for sharing with friends and ideal for parties, I think it’s definitely worth a look if you’re feeling adventurous. Ecig Reviews Green Smoke Review The Green Smoke brand is one of the most popular brands of electronic cigarette.   Before our Green Smoke review, we did some preliminary research and found that Green Smoke are rated #1 in overall satisfaction and value by most reviewing websites and indeed the product seems to never drop lower than the top 3 in most electronic cigarette comparisons.  Our Green Smoke review was most impressed  with the product also and although we believe the safe cig and v2 to be marginally better, we still rate the green smoke as in the top 3 electronic cigarettes on the Posted on March 1, 2013 by admin LEAVE A COMMENT Generated with www.html-to-pdf.net Page 4 / 12
  5. 5. market. As you would expect from a leading brand they offer great customer service, a consistent quality product and give users one of the highest vapor producing electronic cigarettes in the industry. They were the also very first to invent the “two-part” technology and have been around for a long time. HOW IT WORKS The Green Smoke brand offers a two-piece e-cigarette which contains a battery and an atomizer. The atomizer is integrated with water, nicotine (if desired), propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, and the flavor. All ingredients are safe products that are commonly used in various foods products. Once used, it can be quickly unscrewed and replaced with ease. The user draws on the e-cigarette and the atomizer begins to heat the solution in the cartridge. The heat turns the nicotine solution into a vapor. This vapor is then inhaled by the user, and whether it’s inhaled or released as a ‘smoke’ vapor, the mist dissipates into the air within seconds. Therefore, there is no smell or second-hand smoke for others to be concerned about. COST AND STYLE Green Smoke offers a high-quality steel design and batteries are white and come in either short or long sizes, like a standard tobacco cigarette. Green Smoke is now offering a racing kit, with a Green Smoke hat and T-shirt. It has a green tip that lights red or green when users inhale.  Starter kits cost anywhere from $109 to  $270, which is high-priced to new users who are new to the electronic cigarette experience. The cartridges are equal to a pack of standard tobacco cigarettes. A 5-pack of cartridges (equivalent to 5 packs of traditional cigarettes) costs about $14, which is a little less than $3 per pack – excellent value and significant savings on ‘real’  tobacco cigarettes. TASTE, VAPOR PRODUCTION, AND EASE OF DRAW There are several flavors to choose from when ‘going green’, they include: tobacco (similar to pipe tobacco), tobacco red (similar to cigarette tobacco), menthol, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Nicotine levels that are available are 24, 16-18, 12, 6- 8, and 0 mgs. Our Green Smoke review was very impressed with the amount of vapor produced (which has been described as rich and flavorful) by the Green Smoke brand.  It was  extremely high, to the satisfaction of our team and many users we surveyed.  We  agreed that the tobacco flavor taste was very pleasing and smooth. CUSTOMER SERVICE AND SHIPMENT Green Smoke offers a 30-day money back guarantee and a 1 year warranty on all e-cigarettes. There is free shipping on orders over $25. The only downfall to international users is that orders have been reported to take a while to receive. They also provide the best customer service in the industry; as proven by the countless reviews of highly satisfied customers. Users are also impressed with the packaging and the overall product received. There is a wallet card included that customers can give to other people or establishment workers containing information about the electronic cigarette if they have questions or ask the user to ‘go outside’.

  6. 6. Green Smoke Review Verdict Overall, our Green Smoke review found that although the product at first appear to be expensive, the quality of their electronic cigarettes is better than most others in the industry and it costs considerably less than smoking the traditional and harmful cigarettes.  For users that enjoy ease of use and a high concentration of vapor along  with a smooth tasting smoke then you won’t go far wrong with Green Smoke. Ecig Reviews V2 Cigs Review V2 ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE REVIEW Our V2 Electronic Cigarette Review found that the ‘V2’ product is one of the leading brands in the market; maintaining excellent customer service and producing a high- quality product.  With 5 starter kits and a range of customization options it’s easy to see why a lot of new users of electronic cigarettes choose V2. HOW IT WORKS V2 offers the popular two-part e-cigarette that is extremely customizable and comes with a wide assortment of accessories. V2 e-cigarette users can choose between black, white, indigo blue or silver colored batteries and these can be manual or automatic.   Users also get a convenient PCC (portable charging case) so  they are never left with a dead battery when on the go. V2 uses innovative technology to ensure a consistent and quality product. Their product consists of battery and a disposable atomized flavor cartridge, which is thrown away after each use. The ‘fresh-seal’ technology used by V2 ensures that the user always gets consistent vapor production and never a burnt tobacco flavor. There will never be any leaking or mess to deal with because the nicotine pad is enclosed in the cartridge. The part that actually touches the users’ mouth is replaced with each new cartridge (filter). COST AND STYLE V2 e-cigarettes offer 5 different starter kits between $65 to $150. They offer a great ‘couples’ kit for those who are interested in getting two large kits at a large discount. Deluxe cartomizers are equivalent to about 1 pack of standard cigarettes and cost is $1.69 each and provides between 150-200 puffs (depending on the habits of the user).  V2 offers lanyards, portable charge cases, and other accessories  that are available in the colors red and blue. Batteries are 100 to 140mm in length meaning you can have a shorter ecig if you so wish, however, during our V2 Electronic Cigarette review we found that longer batteries provide longer smoking time. TASTE, VAPOR PRODUCTION, AND EASE OF DRAW V2 have a large assortment of flavors, from cowboy, congress, menthol, cherry, coffee, peppermint, chocolate, sahara, and vanilla with many different flavors Posted on March 1, 2013 by admin LEAVE A COMMENT Generated with www.html-to-pdf.net Page 6 / 12
  7. 7. coming up (like banana blast and island coconut). Nicotine levels can also be tailored to individual preferences (one of the best features of V2) cartridges are available in: 18, 12, 6, and 0 mgs. V2 Electronic Cigarette Review found that manual batteries offer much more vapor production for the user, as well as a deep throat hit from being able to push the button to determine when the ecig begins to heat up. CUSTOMER SERVICE AND SHIPMENT V2 customer service is available via the phone and internet and is available for a customer requiring assistance. Users are offered a 30-day money back guarantee and a lifetime replacement warranty. In most cases, free shipping is offered. It is documented that 79% of V2 customers are living their life completely smoke-free. It appears as though V2 ownership is one that truly cares about its products and the outcome of its customers’ experiences. There is also a program offered by V2, Smoke For Free, which is a customer rewards program that gives clients the opportunity to reduce their monthly e- cigarette costs. Customers can request S4F cards that, when given to friends and family to use, provides credit to the customer and discounts to the referring client. It is a great program to spread the word about a caring company, as well as to help friends and family find a new and safer way to smoke.   V2 Electronic Cigarette Review Verdict Our V2 Electronic Cigarette review concludes that the V2 is an excellent product.  A  diverse range of flavor and the ability to choose the strength of nicotine cartridge make this a really great choice.  Further customization comes from the various  different lengths and color of battery available.  A highly popular choice, we rate the  V2 electronic cigarette as on of the best we have tried.  Just beaten to first position  by the safe cig due to the length of time the battery lasts and the amount of equivalent tobacco cigarettes per cartridge. Ecig Reviews Safe Cig Review The Safe Cig is an up and coming brand, both in popularity and in quality. They strive to ensure that the Safe Cig brand offers customers the latest technology and most competitive prices. HOW IT WORKS The Safe Cig is a two-part device containing a battery and a disposable atomized cartridge containing the nicotine, flavor, and propylene glycol.  It boasts having the  world’s most advanced flow sensor battery. Once a user completes the ‘draw’ off of the e-cigarette, the flow sensor immediately shuts down to ensure that the battery life is preserved as much as possible. They also offer refill cartridges for added Posted on March 1, 2013 by admin LEAVE A COMMENT Generated with www.html-to-pdf.net Page 7 / 12
  8. 8. savings. A big problem with refill cartridges is that they can be messy and leak nicotine and/or e-liquid. The Safe Cig has went a step further and added a ‘catcher’  that ensures that no liquid is able to leak out or get into a customers’ mouth before it is vaporized. COST AND STYLE Starter kits range from $70 to $140. The Starter Kit is for those social users who only smoke during the day or evening and costs $69. The Starter Kit Pro is $89 and basically adds a battery so that users are never stuck without a charge. The Starter Kit Deluxe is $138 and has everything that The Safe Cig has to offer, including every type of charger and a carrying case. Cartridges are equivalent to about 2 packs of standard cigarettes, which is almost twice as much as both brands. Cartridges cost about $2.50 each. The Safe Cig also runs specials consistently. During most times, they offer a ‘Buy 2- Get 1 Free’ on cartridges, 20% off of the first order, and free shipping within the US. For those users that own the black battery, there are black ‘skins’ that cover the refill cartridges for a sleek and uniform look. The Safe Cig has also gone to great lengths to ensure that the battery life they provide is more than any other e-cig brand on the market. TASTE, VAPOR PRODUCTION, AND EASE OF DRAW The Safe Cig does not offer fruity flavors as to avoid advertising to those too young to smoke. The flavors offered are:  traditional, classic, and menthol. Nicotine levels  include: 24, 18, 14, 11, 6, and 0 mgs. Users report that vapor production is consistent and satisfying, despite the life of the cartridge. CUSTOMER SERVICE AND SHIPMENT The Safe Cig offers free shipping, a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, and a lifetime warranty on defective products. Customer service has a customer support desk to further assist users in choosing the right product and/or using the products in the most efficient way. It is clear that The Safe Cig goes a long way to ensure superior and innovative products, backed by an excellent quality customer service standard. Users have reported that The Safe Cig is a very reliable product with quality technology. The only negative feedback, which several users mentioned, was that more variety in both products and colors is desired. Ecig Reviews Future of ecigs? At some stage, 25% of smokers will be using an e-cigarette. We don’t know when Posted on March 1, 2013 by admin LEAVE A COMMENT Generated with www.html-to-pdf.net Page 8 / 12
  9. 9. this will be but it is not that far off – perhaps by 2025, perhaps earlier. Certainly, by 2013 we know that 6% of smokers will have converted. If the current rate of growth continued then it would happen much sooner, but presumably a growth rate of 500%+ per year cannot be maintained, and the graph will start to get less steep. Keep in mind that Sweden reduced the number of smokers by 40%, by allowing free purchase of smokeless tobacco (Snus). The death rate dropped by 40% in parallel of course. This is why they have the lowest smoking- related death rate in the developed world by a wide margin. It is expected that the pharmaceutical industry will succeed in having e- cigarettes banned in some countries, and restricted in others where they do not succeed in obtaining a ban. They will be aided by the pharmaceutical licensing aulthorities in each country, as those agencies in practice act as the legal arm of the pharma industry – they never take any action that would severely impact pharma income, and where possible they assist in removing commercial competitors. As examples, note their success in having Snus banned throughout Europe at the cost of many lives, and the recent virtual ban on herbal medicines in order to restrict sales that compete with pharma. As a result, some (or many) e-cigarette users will have resort to black market supplies of e-cigarettes and materials in order to exercise their right of choice and their right to life. This may be a historic event when it occurs, as it might be the first time that people have had to go to the black market for safer materials in order to stay alive, in contrast to the more usual practice of obtaining dangerous substances. It will also be most people’s first real taste of government corruption and its direct effect on them. Ecig Blog Are ecigs legal? Electronic cigarettes are legal to import, own and use in the UK, US, and most European countires. There had been opposition to them by individual government agencies in both the UK and US, but these objections were quashed by the courts (in the US) and higher government (in the UK). It was claimed that “there was little research”, or “we don’t know what’s in them”, or “we don’t know much about them”  – but since such statements are outright lies, and since there was a long list of professors, doctors and epidemiologists who could refute those statements, and due to the fact that after extensive use by millions of people there has been no report of harm, the actions to ban e-cigarettes were overturned. In fact e-cigarettes can now be shown to be thousands of times safer than quit-smoking drugs such as Chantix. After many years of use by millions of people all around the world, there is not one single incident of death or disease linked to e-cigarette use.

  10. 10. Death and disease associated with smoking are caused by the smoke and products of combustion. If the smoke and combustion products such as carbon monoxide are removed, risk is considerably reduced, probably by more than 99%. Nicotine is not an overly harmful material, it is similar to caffeine/coffee in many ways. It cannot cause cancer or any of the other diseases caused by smoking, as it is the smoke that does this. It is impossible for e-cigarettes to cause lung cancer. People who say that nicotine is a dangerous, toxic chemical presumably know little or nothing about nutrition: nicotine is part of the diet; everyone everywhere tests positive for it; and one of its metabolytes is a vitamin (niacin or Vitamin B3). Like similar materials it is normally only present in minute quantities. With the smoke removed, a user’s risk drops by several orders of magnitude. E- cigarettes are extremely unlikely to cause cancer, heart disease, arterial disease, or COPD as there is nothing in the vapor that can cause this. There is no smoke. This is why all the extensive research on e-cigarettes, and all the senior medical figures who have carried out this research or inspected it and commented on it, reinforce the fact that e-cigarettes are far safer than tobacco cigarettes, and that they should be introduced as swiftly as possible as an alternative to smoking, since hundreds of thousands of lives will be saved if this is done. There is a long list of senior medical figures such as professors in charge of public health departments in hospitals, doctors who are clinical researchers, and organisations such as the AAPHP, the American Association of Public Health Physicians, and the ACSH, the American Council for Science and Health, who have examined the evidence and pronounced e-cigarettes as safe for use as an alternative smoking method with the object of saving lives. It is important to note that a great deal of research has been carried out on e- cigarettes. As an example, we know much more about what is in them than we do about what is in tobacco cigarettes. Any statements that contradict this are untrue, and most likely some form of propaganda. E-cigs have been used by millions of people, globally, for many years – and there are no incidents of mortality that can be directly linked to e-cigarette use. As yet there is no long- term population data but this will not be available for another two decades. It should also be carefully noted that even when this is available, as is the case for Snus – which are proven safe by two and a half decades of research and the near-200 clinical trials and surveys that say so, and by the simple fact that Sweden reduced their smoking- related death rate by 40% – it will not stop the opposition to and lies about the products, as some powerful interests will lose a great deal of money if electronic cigarettes become widely available. It is certainly true that some users will be intolerant to some ingredients. The effects of such intolerance can be reduced or eliminated by changing to a different brand of e-liquid with a different ingredient profile. There is such a wide range of base materials and flavours available that it is impossible for all users to be completely tolerant to all materials.

  11. 11. Definition of an ecig A standard electronic cigarette has either two or three parts: a battery, atomizer and cartridge; or a battery and combined atomizer-cartridge. The battery is normally a 3.7 volt rechargeable Li-ion cell, with some electronics packaged with it to control the recharge and discharge state. The atomizer is a tiny coil of nichrome wire that heats the liquid and vaporises it. A simplified description of how it works is that it is a combination of a toaster and a kettle: the heater coil is exactly the same as that in a toaster but on a smaller scale; and in use it works like a kettle, as the coil heats up while immersed in a liquid bath. The result looks like steam but is well below th temperature needed for that, as it utilises the same ingredient used in disco fog machines to create visible vapor – it is mainly water vapor but at far lower temperature than steam. The cartridge contains the refill liquid, which is normally held in some sort of sponge or foam, and gravity-feeds it to the heater element. Ecig Blog When did ecigs start The electronic cigarette was invented in the mid 20th century. There are two patents for electrical smoking devices that are substantially similar to today’s e- cigarette, which were never manufactured in quantity, and lapsed. Later, in China in the mid-90′s, Hon Lik, a chemist and engineer who had seen his father die of  cancer, invented the modern version with electronic battery controls. As a smoker himself, he wanted to find a way to obtain nicotine but without the risk to health, and believed that if the smoke could be removed, then so would most if not all of the risk. The idea was simply to continue to ‘smoke’ – but without the smoke. He formed a company called Rú yan ( ?? – which in translation can best be said to mean “Like Smoke”) to market his invention. The company is now called Dragonite. By early 2006 e-cigarettes were available in the UK, and in the USA by the end of the year. It is thought that by 2007 there were about 1,000 e-cigarette owners in the UK, and the world’s first internet forum on the topic was started in London. The averaged growth in use of e-cigarettes has been about 500% per year in the UK, with somewhere between 200,000 and 400,000 owners there by Q2 2011, the UK market being worth around £5m at that time. Growth in the US has been much stronger – phenomenal, in fact – as there are now between 2 and 4 million current users, with the market worth $100m or more. The original forum now often has over 1,000 people online at any time, more than 4,000 posts per day, and over 3 million pages on the sitemap. Electronic cigarettes are proving not just popular – use is increasing at a stunning rate.
