E-cigarettes have become a modern-day phenomenon. From virtually zero just a few years ago, there are now an estimated 2.6 million vapers in the UK alone. Last year, domestic sales rose by a quarter to top £459 million, and worldwide sales were close to £4 billion.
A survey by anti-smoking campaign group ASH found that almost all of Britain’s vapers are either current or ex-smokers, with the amount of vapers who had never smoked being “negligible”. The top reason for using e-cigarettes given by ex-smokers was to help them stop smoking entirely, while the top reason given by current smokers was to help reduce the amount of tobacco they smoke.
Other reasons given included “To avoid putting those around me at risk due to second-hand tobacco smoke” (given by 23 per cent of ex-smokers and 20 per cent of current ones), “To save money compared with smoking tobacco” (38 per cent and 32 per cent) and “I needed something to help deal with situations where I cannot smoke, e.g. workplaces, bars or restaurants” (11 per cent and 25 per cent).
Whatever the reason for switching to e-cigarettes, many newcomers naturally try disposable e-cigarettes first. These are convenient and relatively cheap, and they allow you to try vaping without making too much commitment. Most then go on to buy more serious kit, however, and there are clear benefits to doing so. A refillable e-cigarette or vaping mod does require a little more initial outlay, but when you compare the cost of e-liquid refills to disposable e-cigs (and definitely to the cost of tobacco cigarettes), you’ll find that a refillable e-cig proves far more cost-effective over the longer term. Many vapers feel it provides a better vaping experience, and you will also have a wider choice of e-liquids to choose from when it comes to refilling your tank. You can find e-liquids in this site.
While disposables come with their own inbuilt batteries that only last for a limited time, refillable e-cigarettes can also be recharged repeatedly. Choose a product like the Eleaf iStick 30W 2200mAh Power Unit and you’ll be buying a high-quality device that looks great, fits in the palm of your hand, and delivers outstanding performance. Available in black, blue, pink or silver, this is a sleek charger that gives you all the power you need.
With 2200Ah battery capacity, it can handle up to 8V, 30W and it also supports sub-ohm coils. Sub-ohm vaping can be used to produce huge clouds of vapour, with enthusiasts often being referred to as cloud chasers. If you’re not into that niche area of vaping – and it certainly isn’t to everyone’s taste – this charger also supports atomisers with a resistance of up to 5ohms, making it suitable for most regular e-cigarettes and other vaping devices.
Whether you’re looking to quit or cut down on smoking for health reasons, to save money, or you simply want to vape without annoying or harming anyone else in the vicinity, using e-cigarettes can be a great alternative to tobacco, and great kit like the Eleaf iStick 30W 2200mAh Power Unit can only enhance the experience.
