Public Health Groups Against E-cigarettes Accept Millions Of Dollars From Big Pharma Smoking Cessation Drug Companies

Here's a story that should really make your blood boil. As it turns out, several very well-known public health groups and organizations (that are opposed to e-cigarettes) have been accepting millions of dollars on the side from the Big Pharma companies that manufacture "smoking cessation" drugs.

In fact, and according to the financial contribution report released by Pfizer (the maker of CHANTIX), several of these organizations, that have been pressing for a ban on e-cigarettes, have, in fact, received millions of dollars from them (Pfizer).

In case you don't know, Pfizer makes CHANTIX (Varenicline), a smoking cessation prescription drug. And yeah, they stand to lose A LOT of money if e-cigarettes continue to become more and more popular, as they have been. In other words, the growing popularity of e-cigarettes translates to less money in the pockets of the Big Pharma companies that make smoking cessation products.

Major Conflict Of Interest?

I first became aware of this, thanks to a recent article written by Dr. Siegel, a Professor in the Department of Community Health Sciences at Boston University School of Public Health.

According to his article, "These organizations have repeatedly failed to disclose their financial interests in Big Pharma when making statements opposing electronic cigarettes."

So how much money have they received from Big Pharma? Well, here's the rundown...

The following figures represent the money received (from Pfizer alone!) by each group for 2011, and the first two quarters of 2012:

- American Academy of Pediatrics: $720,800
- American Cancer Society: $252,750
- American Heart Association: $136,000
- American Lung Association: $190,250
- Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids: $100,000
- American Medical Association: $857,500
- American Legacy Foundation: $300,000
- Action on Smoking and Health: $200,000

The grand total is almost $2.8 million!

And just so you know, the above groups are the main groups that called for the removal of e-cigarettes from the market place!

Note: Figures based on Dr. Siegel's article, referencing Pfizer's "Transparency in Grants" financial contribution report.

More from Dr. Siegel's article Anti-Smoking Groups that Opposed Electronic Cigarettes Accepted Money to the Tune of $2.8 Million from Pfizer Alone in 2011-2012:

"These figures illustrate how strong a financial interest the major national anti-smoking groups have in Big Pharma and help explain the entrenched position of these groups against electronic cigarettes. These data also help explain why these groups continue to promote drug therapy for smoking cessation despite evidence of its dismal rates of effectiveness."

Causing More Harm Than Good?

These groups and organizations called for the removal and/or ban of e-cigarettes. Each group submitted an amicus brief urging that the D.C. District Court allow the FDA to ban e-cigarettes and regulate them under the Federal Food Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act.)...even though e-cigarette manufactures weren't making any therapeutic claims regarding their e-cig products.

According to Dr. Siegel, "Had the recommended action of these groups been taken, literally thousands of ex-smokers would instead be smokers today because electronic cigarettes have been their means to achieve smoke-free status."

Public Health Groups More Interested In Money Than Health?

It's also important to mention that NONE of these anti-smoking groups mentioned their financial ties to Pfizer or Big Pharma in their amicus briefs. They also fail to mention this potential conflict of interest on their websites, in public statements, etc., while griping on and on about how e-cigarettes are bad for your health.

In fact, each of these groups has taken money from a Big Pharma company that is (coincidentally?) a direct competitor to e-cigarettes. And we're not talking about pocket change here. In fact, each organization took/accepted at least $100,000 (from Pfizer alone) just within the 18-month period mentioned above.

So who the hell knows what other money they've gotten from Big Pharma and the like over time! Scary and disgusting, in my opinion.

Bottom Line

These days, when public health groups start to fight for one cause or another, you absolutely MUST do the following things:

1. Take it with a grain of salt (at least at first)
2. Follow the money!
3. Find out from where their so-called "funding" is coming.
4. Compare their data to the data of those who have NO FINANCIAL TIES to competing companies.

It really is a sad state of affairs when the organizations that are "supposed" to be looking out for our health allow themselves to accept money from companies, especially the companies whose products are much worse than the alternative they're fighting against.

V2 Cigs Standard Starter Kit Review

If you're looking for a quality e-cigarette starter kit that isn't overpriced, then you might want to take a look at the V2 Cigs starter kits. Truth be told, there are countless e-cigarette starter kits to choose from these days. Some cost too much, and some just aren't up to snuff in the quality department.

But when it comes to V2 Cigs, you won't have to worry. They're widely known for their quality and customer satisfaction. In addition, they offer a Lifetime Warranty on their products, so should something ever go wrong, you're covered. And that's a good thing to know as a consumer.

As for e-cigarette starter kits, V2 Cigs does offer several different types. But for this review, I'm going to focus on the V2 Standard Kit starter kit.

Note: You can get 10% off all purchases at V2 Cigs with coupon code: v2save10

V2 Cigs Starter Kit Review - The V2 Standard Kit

For starters, the V2 Cigs Standard Kit comes with everything you need start vaping right away, and thus, giving you an alternative to smoking those nasty tobacco cigarettes. The kit also comes with the V2 Smart Charger (a USB charger). The Smart Charger has an internal chip that charges your e-cigarette battery twice as fast, and also prevents overcharging.

What Comes In The V2 Standard Kit

Like mentioned above, the V2 Standard starter kit comes with everything you'll need to get your vape on right away. The V2 Standard Kit includes:

1 V2 automatic battery
1 V2 manual battery
10 V2 flavor cartridges
1 wall adapter charger
1 Smart Charger (USB charger)
1 V2 Manual
Lifetime Warranty

One particular highlight of the V2 Cigs Standard starter kit is the Smart Charger (USB charger) that also comes with it. Since the V2 Smart Charger is a USB charger, it'll allow you to charge your e-cigarette via any standard USB port.

So yeah, this allows your to charge your e-cigarette with your desktop computer, laptop, Xbox, PlayStation 3, etc. If it's got a standard USB port, it'll charge your e-cigs. And that's pretty damn handy.

Vapor Production

Vapor production of the V2 Standard starter kit is excellent. It produced a nice, thick cloud of vapor, with no effort at all. So you can expect a really nice "throat hit" with it. But also with no harshness to speak of.

All in all, it's really smooth and enjoyable, which is just what we've come to expect from V2 Cigs. Anything else, and we'd be really taken aback (and pretty pissed).

Product Quality and Lifetime Warranty

Honestly, there's no question about quality in regard to the V2 Standard Kit. It's all top-notch, right down to the batteries, and the chargers themselves. Our only wish is that they offer a few more vaping flavors (like Volcanoecigs does).

But other than that, there's nothing to complain about. I mean, the V2 starter kit is definitely rock solid in every single way. It gives you everything you need for vaping. So you finally can quit those nasty analog cigarettes immediately! :)

As for warranty, the V2 Standard Kit starter kit comes with the V2 Cigs Lifetime Warranty. The V2 Cigs Lifetime Warranty protects you from any product defects and whatnot for the full life of your V2 Cigs product. As a consumer, a good, solid warranty is very important, and V2 Cigs offers the best one out there today.

V2 Cigs Starter Kit Options

Another thing we like about the V2 Standard Kit starter kit are the options you have when ordering. First off, you can select up to two different cartridge flavors, and choose which nicotine strength you want.

You also have several different battery color options from which to choose, both for your automatic battery and for your manual battery (both of which are KR808D-1 threaded, btw).

The e-cigarette battery color options are as follows:

Stainless Steel (we really like this one!)

V2 Cigs Flavor Cartridge Options

When you order your V2 Cigs starter kit (whichever one it may be) you can choose which cartridge flavor or flavors you want to vape on.

V2 currently offers several different cartridge flavors, all of which are pretty delicious. As of this writing, V2 Cigs offers the following cartridge flavors:

V2 Red, Sahara, Congress, Menthol, Peppermint, Mint Tea, Cherry, Chocolate, Coffee and Vanilla

The nicotine strength choices are: 18 Full, 12 Medium, 6 Light, and 0 Zero (zero nicotine)

Overall Packaging

The packaging itself is nice and tidy. It's clean and attractive, but it's also nothing to really write home about. Don't get me wrong; it's not bad at all. In fact, it's better than most. But it could be better. It needs a little more flare, a little more personality. And perhaps, a bit more color and vibrancy. It's a bit medicinal-looking, in my opinion. Then again, it's just packaging, no so biggie.

Expiration Dates and Blister Packaging

One very important area in which V2 Cigs has excelled is in the area of safety, freshness and tamper prevention. Undoubtedly, they lead the pack when it comes to such things.

In fact, all V2 flavor cartridges, e-liquid, express kits and disposable e-cigarettes come with expiration dates (so you'll know for sure that your stuff is fresh). In addition, the V2 flavor cartridges are individually sealed in foil-protected blister packaging. This prolongs the life of your cartridges, and also protects them from tampering.

Free Batch Testing Safety Reports

Another benefit you'll get by choosing V2 Cigs is the availability of live batch testing safety reports, which are available to all V2 Cigs customers for free via email.

Batch safety test reports offer you a way of knowing exactly what's in your e-liquid and/or flavor cartridges, so you can rest assured that you have noting to worry about.

This is a revolutionary change in the e-cigarette industry, much thanks to V2 Cigs. Hopefully other e-cig manufacturers and brands will follow this important example. But right now, as far as we know, no other e-cigarette company will send you e-liquid and cartridge batch test reports to your email address for free upon request.

V2 Starter Kit Review - Shipping

Shipping speed is really good. Orders generally arrive within 3 days or so (with the $5 flat rate shipping option). Other companies seem to take a bit longer, and some take way longer. Keep in mind that weekend orders will usually take a couple extra days.

V2 Cigs offers several different choices when it comes to shipping your e-cigarette starter kit to you, including  $5 flat rate shipping, and free shipping on all order over $200.

Shipping options are via USPS (United States Postal Office) or UPS. To check the status of your order, all you have to do is log in to your V2 Cigs account. You can also track your order directly by using the tracking number they sent you when the shipment was made.

Multiple Order Tracking Options

V2 Cigs offers you several ways in which to track your starter kit order. Here are the available order tracking options:

Track using tracking numbers
Tracking via a mobile device
SMS text message tracking
Tracking by reference
Track using a UPS invoice
Tracking by email
UPS critical shipment tracking
UPS signature tracking
Tracking with UPS Internet shipping

V2 Cigs Standard Kit Review - Overall Impressions

When all is said and done, the V2 Standard Kit e-cigarette starter kit is no doubt a very strong buy. When compared to the numerous other e-cigarette starter kits out there, there's no doubt that the V2 standard Kit (with its Lifetime Warranty) is an excellent choice.

Here's the quick review rundown:

Vapor production: Excellent. Smooth and thick. 
Appearance: Looks cool and sleek
Product Quality: Excellent. Above most others.
Reliability: Excellent. No fails at all. 
Warranty: Lifetime Warranty
Shipping: $5 flat rate shipping 
Batch Testing: Yes. Free via email.

In summation, you can't go wrong with a V2 Standard Kit starter kit. It really is a great product all around. So check it out today and see what you think.

V2 Cigs Notebook-Cig Review

A few weeks ago I did a review on the Power-Cig by v2 Cigs (see V2 Cigs Power-Cig Review). But since a lot of people are also interested in the Notebook-Cig, I figure it's only appropriate that I do a review on that as well now that I've had a chance to test it out. So here you go...

UPDATE: The Notebook-Cig has been discontinued. It's been replaced by the much better V2 Power-Cig.

See our V2 Power-Cig review.

Note: You can get 10% off all purchases at V2 Cigs with coupon code: v2save10

V2 Cigs Notebook-Cig Review
Vape Without Batteries!

The V2 Notebook-Cig by V2 Cigs is basically the little cousin to the V2 Power-Cig (also by V2 Cigs). It, too, is well-designed, and comes with a USB plug at the end of its power cord (no need for batteries when you want to vape!).

The main difference between the two is that the cord on the Notebook-Cig is a bit shorter than that of the Power-Cig. The Power-Cig has a coiled and stretchable cord, whereas, the Notebook-Cig does not. No biggie, unless you want the extra length. Both are priced exactly the same.

The USB plug will allow you to vape by plugging the Notebook-Cig into any USB port, whether that be on your laptop computer, desktop computer, PS3, Xbox, car adapter with USB, etc. So there's no need for batteries! And yeah, any standard USB port will work. It'll get you vaping immediately, just like you want. ;)

Vapor Production - The V2 Notebook-Cig

Vapor production is great. No questions asked. The Notebook-Cig definitely delivers a really thick and smooth vapor...as well as an awesome throat hit. And it delivers lots of flavor, too. It does this every single time, with perfect consistency. Gotta say, we're really impressed with it.

And just like the Power-Cig, the Notebook-Cig has a small, well-placed button on it that you press whenever you want to vape. Just plug it in, push the button, and enjoy. It's really that simple.

Pressed for time? Didn't read all that? Here's the quick rundown:

• Vapor production - excellent
• Ease of use - very simple
• Overall design - excellent
• Warranty - excellent (lifetime warranty)

V2 Cigs Notebook-Cig Features and Specs

Here are the basic features and specs of the V2 Notebook-Cig, so you'll know exactly what to expect.

• 4.25 foot (1.29 meter) cord
• USB plug (attached to the cord)
• Manual push-button (located on the device)
• 5 volts (power rating)
• Comes with 1 5-pack of V2 Flavor Cartridges (in your choice of flavor)

V2 Cigs Flavor Cartridge Options

The V2 Notebook-Cig comes with a free 5-pack of flavor cartridges. The current cartridge flavors offered by V2 Cigs are: V2 Red, Congress, Sahara, Menthol, Peppermint, Mint Tea, Cherry, Chocolate, Coffee and Vanilla.

The nicotine strength choices are: 18 Full, 12 Medium, 6 Light, and 0 Zero (zero nicotine)

Overall Thoughts

Overall, we're very impressed with the V2 Notebook-Cig. It's an awesome vaping device that you'll certainly be able to count on, time and time again. It truly gives you some of the best vapor production and throat hit of any e-cigarette on the market today. And best of all, it does it without requiring any batteries at all!

The only downside, perhaps, is the shorter cord. In all honesty, we do prefer the coiled and stretchable cord of the Power-Cig over that of the Notebook-Cig. So if you want that extra distance (and the tidiness of a coiled cord), then go with the Power-Cig. But if not, then the Notebook-Cig is definitely the perfect choice.

They're each priced exactly the same, so it simply comes down to personal preference and need. Bottom line, both the Power-Cig and the Notebook-Cig are total winners. Real must-haves when it comes to true vaping satisfaction. :)

Volcanoecigs Adds Maui Mango And Sharks Clove E-liquid Flavors

The folks at Volcanoegics just added two new flavors to their long list of yummy e-liquid flavors. So I think that makes it a total of 34 different flavors so far. Heck, that's even more than Baskin-Robbins, lol.

The two new flavors are Maui Mango and Sharks Clove. We haven't tried them yet, but if they're anything like their other flavors, then they'll no doubt be quite enjoyable to vape on. Here's a little more about each new flavor...

Maui Mango E-liquid - Here's how Volcanoecigs describes it: "From the foggy hills of Maui comes one of our most signature flavors, Maui Mango. Sweet with a sense of tangy freshness. Pick one up and use this flavor to create a signature mix of your own or enjoy it all by itself"

Nicotine strengths: Extra High (24 mg), Full Flavored (16 mg), Lights (8 mg), Zero (0 mg)

Sharks Clove E-liquid - Here's how Volcanoecigs describes it: "A spicy delight that's been around in leafy form for centuries has now been brought to you in liquid form.  Our Sharks Clove is a smashing rendition of traditional clove flavors and will be sure to put you in a state of nirvana with every puff!"

Nicotine strengths: Extra High (24 mg), Full Flavored (16 mg), Lights (8 mg), Zero (0 mg)

Both e-liquid flavors, much like their other flavors, are available in two different bottle sizes: 15 mL and 30 mL. The 15 mL bottle is priced at $12.99. The 30 mL bottle is just $7.00 more, making it a much better value.

So head on over to Volcanoecigs and see what tickles your fancy. Aside from their e-liquid flavors they've got some killer e-cigarette kits as well, like the INFERNO Kit and the LAVATUBE Kit.

Happy vaping!

How To Get The Best Vapor From Your E-cig Cartridges

A common question among many vapers these days is how to get the best performance out of your e-cigarette flavor cartridges.

So, if you were also wondering how to get the best vapor and the best flavor from your e-cig cartridges, then you're in luck. And all you need is a paperclip!

Yeah, it couldn't be any easier.

Thanks to V2 Cigs, the leader when it comes to e-cigarettes, we now have a nice little 3-step guide on how to do just that. They put together a few simple, easy-to-follow steps that will help you get the best vapor and the best flavor out of your e-cig cartridges. Note that this is for V2 flavor cartridges, so if you happen to have some other cartridge brand, you may want to contact them before trying these steps.

How to Get the Best Vapor Out of Your E-cigarette Cartridges

The three steps listed below will help you get more vapor and flavor from your e-cigarette cartridges. And all you need is one simple paperclip! If you don't have a paperclip, you could just use something similar.

1. Take a paperclip and pop open the cap of the cartridge. Notice the polyfill (the cloth-like material inside) wrapping itself around the wick of the cartridge.

2. With the paperclip, gently push down the polyfill material, making sure that it's absorbing all the e-liquid at the bottom of the cartridge. You may also want to give it a light spin to ensure that the cloth is completely saturated.

Note: For the "spin" part mentioned above, you could use the Taryn Spin method. How do you do the Taryn Spin? Easy! See here: How To Do The Taryn Spin Method To Refill Cartomizers

3. Lightly pull the polyfill back to the center of the cartridge. Pop the cap back onto the cartridge and give it a little shake. You may want to let it sit for a few minutes (3 to 5 minutes should do).

So there you have it. An easy way to get more vapor and performance from your flavor cartridges, with no sweat at all.

Happy vaping!

E-Cigarette Free Trial Offer - 5 Reasons It's A Scam!

E-cigarette Free Trial Offer - 5 Reasons It's A Scam!

Let's face it, nothing in life if free. Nothing! Yet, free e-cigarette trial offers seem to be all over the Web these days. They promise you the opportunity to try out an e-cigarette completely free, with no worries at all. It's completely "Guaranteed, or your money back!" Or so they say.

You may have seen or heard these ads yourself. Many are advertised on the radio, though the majority are advertised online. Here are a few examples of the titles and/or catchphrases they use:

- Free Electronic Cigarette Trial Offer
- Free E-cigarette Trial Offer
- Electronic Cigarette Free Trial Kits
- Free E-cigarette Trial Kit
- Free Electronic Cigarette Samples

While the above are just a few current examples, the list (and variations) goes on and on. So that begs one to question: Are these free trial offers for real?

Um, no! They're a scam. The main reasons these free trial offers for e-cigarettes and/or starter kits are a scam are as follows:

• Unwanted bills (monthly charges, etc.)
• Inferior products
• Deceptive marketing
• Unwanted replacements
• Difficult to cancel or impossible to cancel
• Autoship (usually at least once a month)
• Overpriced products

Above are just a few of the many reasons why free electronic cigarette trial offers are a scam, plain and simple. But for the sake of this post, and to help get the word out, I'll elaborate on the 5 main reasons these such free e-cigarette offers are a scam.

1. False Promises and Deceptive Advertising

The main method these scam e-cigarette companies use in order to attract new customers is deceptive advertising. For example, they'll advertise a "free trial" on their e-cigarettes and promise that if you're at all unhappy that you can simply return it for a FULL refund, no questions asked.

The problem? - As soon as you give them your credit card details, they'll start you on a monthly rebill plan (a.k.a., a monthly shipping plan). That, you can count on.

The other problem? - Your so-called "free trial period" usually begins WHEN THEY SHIP the product, NOT when you actually receive it! So you have very little time to cancel it once you actually get it and realize that it really sucks.

2. Difficult or Impossible to Cancel

Due to the reasons mentioned above (difficulty in cancelling), you'll most likely end up with charges to your credit card that you didn't expect or want. But guess what? Too bad! Cancelling these free e-cigarette trial offers can be a real pain in the ass! That is, if you can cancel them at all.

See, like most "free trial" offers, there are many hidden terms and conditions. These hidden terms and conditions can make cancelling nearly impossible, no matter what. So that so-called "refund" and/or "guarantee" is pretty much useless! Bottom line, it's just a baited hook, used to catch you and reel you in.

Often times, your only recourse is to cancel your credit card completely so that no more charges can be made to your account.

3. Inferior E-cigarette Products

The e-cigarettes that come with these free trial offers are definitely inferior. In fact, they're greatly inferior. All you have to do is compare them to the many other electronic cigarettes on the market today (for example, see our recommended e-cigarette starter kits list) to see how crappy these free trial e-cigarette offers really are.

Basically, the components that make up the e-cig devices in these free trial offers are crappy and unreliable...at best. In addition, the e-liquid that comes with them is also most likely inferior (made with low-quality and/or questionable ingredients). Stay away!

4. Unwanted Replacements (E-liquid, Cartomizers, etc.)

Since these free e-cigarette trial offers will automatically rebill you on your credit card (usually every month), there's one thing that you can pretty much definitely expect (even if you've tried to cancel...several times). And what is that, you ask?

Well, it's the good ol' autoship mechanism - one of the most tiresome aspects of the great free e-cigarette trial offer scams. Yep, you guessed it! These e-cig trial offers will not only rebill you every frigging month, but they'll also send you crap that you don't need...and don't want!

They'll send you more e-liquid, more cartomizers, etc. And regardless of whether or not you want them, these inferior products will generally show up at your door...reminding you each time of how you've been taken advantage of, and how you've been totally screwed!

It's not only a waste and a drain on your wallet; it's also a hard reminder of how unscrupulous people can actually be.

5. Overpriced and Expensive

Not only are these companies offering bogus free trials on e-cigarettes, they're also offering e-cig products that are greatly inferior, yet selling them at up to triple the cost of what a quality e-cig brand sells for! So basically, you'll end up paying WAY MORE for a crappy e-cigarette product via a free trial offer than you would if you actually bought from an honest, reputable company.

In the long run, these so-called free e-cig trial offers end up costing consumers three and four times what they would have paid had they just bought from a "real" e-cigarette company to begin with. It's so sad, but it's very true, unfortunately.

How To Avoid E-cigarette Scams!

How can you avoid electronic cigarette scams? Simple. Be very careful how you spend your hard-earned money. Buy your e-cigarettes (starter kits, accessories, etc.) from reputable companies only!

In other words, you should only purchase e-cigs and such form companies that have a long, well-established history of customer satisfaction, customer loyalty, good customer service and great prices.

What Are The Best E-cigarette Companies?

That's a hard question to answer. But based on our own in-depth e-cig product reviews and research, as well as on overall customer satisfaction from vapers all over the world, there are the few e-cig companies that stand out as the best of the best. That said, we can confidently recommend the following e-cigarette brands as the best overall:

1. V2 Cigs
2. Vapor Couture
3. Volcano Ecigs
