Study Says E-cigarettes Not Tied To Risk Of Heart Disease

In an article published this week, Bloomberg reported on a study that was presented by researchers from the Athens-based Onassis Cardiac Surgery Center.

The study, which showed that electronic cigarettes show "no connection to heart disease", was presented at the European Society of Cardiology annual meeting in Munich on August 27th.

From Bloomberg.com:

"Investigators examined the heart activity of 20 young daily smokers after one ordinary cigarette against 22 people who smoked an electronic cigarette for 7 minutes. Whereas tobacco smokers showed “significant” disruptions of functions such as heartbeats or blood pressure, the effect of e-cigarettes on the heart was minimal, Konstantinos Farsalinos, one of the researchers, said in the presentation"

Farsalinos also added: "Currently available data suggest that electronic cigarettes are far less harmful, and substituting tobacco with electronic cigarettes may be beneficial to health."

It's nice to see a story from a major news organization that doesn't include the typical scare-tactic nonsense and false information from those who's only agenda is to eliminate vaping completely. Anyway, you can read the entire Bloomberg article here.

Well, that's definitely true. And in case you were on the fence, wondering whether or not you should actually get a LAVATUBE, then just take a look at this review video.

Vapor Couture Review - E-cigarettes For Women!

Nowadays, there are many e-cigarette brands to choose from. Some are good, and some are not so good. But regardless of quality, they all seem to have a kind of "masculinity" about them in their design and design elements. Whether it be the e-cigs themselves, the starter kits, or the accessories that come with them, they seem to be designed more for men than for women.

And that's where Vapor Couture has stepped in, creating a full line of e-cigarettes and accessories just for women!

E-cigarettes for Women - Elegant and Pretty

Vapor Couture has brought both elegance and beauty to the world of vaping by offering the only line of e-cigarettes designed exclusively for women. Created by the leading online e-cig brand, V2 Cigs, Vapor Couture offers beautifully elegant e-cigarettes with sparkling crystal-tipped batteries that are just to die for.

Each Vapor Couture battery is finished with a sparkling crystal tip and a matching LED light that sparkles and glows with each puff!

The wondrous color choices are: a white faceted crystal tip, a purple crystal tip, a gold jewel tip and a purple jewel tip.

E-cigarettes for Women - Lovely Accessories

In addition to their gorgeous crystal-tipped e-cigarette batteries, Vapor Couture has also created a full line of beautiful and stylish accessories that perfectly compliment each other. For example, there's the Vapor Couture Clutch (see below), a stylish carrying case for your e-cigarettes. The VC Clutch is encased in etched leatherette fabric and comes with a detachable wristlet handle.

It's not only beautiful, but perfect for carrying your e-cigarette batteries, flavor cartridges and a even charger! It also comes with an extra-long mirror and a pocket with a magnetic closure for things like your driver's license, credit cards, etc.

And then there's the pretty Vapor Couture Bracelet and Charm (see above). The Bracelet and Charm is a stylishly-woven bracelet that you can use for carrying your battery, or even an extra flavor cartridge. Elegant and pretty, the VC Bracelet and Charm comes in your choice of four colors: Dark Silver, Metallic Purple, Metallic Pink and Black.

Other fashionably-cool Vapor Couture accessories include: the VC Lanyard and Charm, the VC Charm, the VC Charger Kit, and the VC Charger Kit with Car Adapter.

E-cigarettes for Women - Vapor Couture Cartridge Flavors

Beautiful design just wasn't enough, so Vapor Couture also created four unique and delicious cartridge flavors for all the female vapers out there! These flavors, much like the rest of the Vapor Couture product line, were created specifically with women in mind.

Note: At least two new flavors (Strawberry Champagne and Arctic Mint) are coming very soon!

As for the current Vapor Couture cartridge flavors, they are as follows:

Rodeo Drive
Passion Fruit
Fresh Mint

Nicotine strength choices: Zero (no nicotine), Lite (0.6%), Medium (1.2%) and Full (1.8%).

Vapor Couture Review - Overall Impressions

Personally, I have to agree with the many others who have written very positive reviews about Vapor Couture. The products are, indeed, superb in every way.

Flavor Taste Test - The Vapor Couture flavors have a very clean taste. They're quite delicious, and not at all overpowering. Love 'em!
Vapor Production - Excellent, with a nice, warm vape. Easily, some of the best vapor production you can find.
Batteries - The Vapor Couture batteries are slim and sleek and beautifully designed. But beyond that, they perform very well. Plus, they're very light...some of the lightest anywhere. Yup, they're awesome.
LED Light - The LED light is definitely beautiful, like a glowing crystal that enthralls all those who see it. :)

Bottom line, you can't go wrong with Vapor Couture. In fact, the only thing I'd like to see is a few more cartridge flavors added. What they have now is awesome, but it'd be even more awesome if they introduced a couple more flavors. But all in all, the Vapor Couture line is a total hit!

Volcanoecigs Sports A New Design And Features

This week Volcanoecigs announced via their Twitter page that their newly redesigned website is up. From the looks of things, and from what I can recall from the last time I was there, it seems that pretty much everything has been redesigned. See the screenshot below.

They've also added an age verification page that automatically shows up when first entering the site. And while one could realistically put in any birth date, it's definitely a good idea so as to let those under 18 years of age know that their business is not welcome.

According to Volcanoecigs, they've also added two new features to the site: "Flavor of the Week" and "Vapor of the Week". And though I couldn't find a link anywhere for Vapor of the Week, the link for Flavor of the Week is situated pretty prominently on each page.

So What's This Week's Flavor of the Week?

This week's Flavor of the Week is Bonzai Banana! -Btw, I love the names they come up with for their e-liquids. They always sound so tantalizing. For example, here's a list of some of their e-liquid flavors. Just check out the delicious names and you'll see what I mean. ;)

Bonzai Banana - Their Bonzai Banana e-liquid flavor is a candied banana flavor, and is a very close representation of a banana flavored runt candy. And according to Volcanoecigs, it's "a near perfect mixer with our Cherry Lava and Grape Escape flavors!"

Nicotine Strengths: Like their other e-liquid flavors, Bonzai Banana is available in four different nicotine strengths: Extra High (24 MG), Full Flavored (16 MG), Lights (8 MG) and Zero (0MG).

Bottle Sizes: 15ML and 30 ML

All in all, I think the site redesign came off very well and looks pretty nice. Though, I will say, I didn't see anything wrong with the original design. Guess they just want to keep things cool and fresh. ;)

About Volcanoecigs

Volcanoecigs is a well-known brand in the e-cig industry. They offer a wide variety of starter kits, cartomizers, e-liquids and accessories, and are probably most known for their very popular LAVATUBE.

On their e-cig products they also offer:

• A 1-year limited warranty
• Free shipping on orders over $50
• Fedex flat rate - 2-day delivery for only $7.99

Be sure to check out Volcanoecigs today and see if they have what you're looking for. There's a good chance that they will.

Happy vaping!

V2 Cigs Announces Permanent Price Drop On Starter Kits And More

This week, leading e-cigarette brand V2 Cigs announced a permanent price drop on almost all of their products. This is great news for vapers. And if you're not a vaper, but were thinking about switching to e-cigarettes, then it's great news for you, too!

According to V2 Cigs:

"We are kicking off August by sending out a big "thank you” to all of our faithful fans by permanently lowering prices storewide."

Now you can find even lower prices on just about all of the V2 Cigs products. This includes: starter kits, flavor cartridges, batteries and accessories. Even their clearance items will drop in price.

Big Savings Now At V2 Cigs!

The biggest savings are on their e-cig starter kits and batteries. For example, the V2 Standard Kit (their standard e-cig starter kit) was selling for $79.95. Now, with the permanent price drop, it's only $64.95, which is almost a 20% savings! Excellent, if you ask me.

V2 Cigs has always offered some of the safest and highest quality products in the electronic cigarette industry, while giving vapers a great bang for the buck all at the same time. And these new lower prices are their way of thanking all their current (and future) loyal customers for making them the e-cigarette brand that so many vapers enjoy.

Treat Yourself

So now that the V2 Cigs prices are even more affordable, it's the perfect time to stock up on e-cig batteries, which are now priced at under $25. Or treat yourself on an attractive Metal Carry Case, a portable charging case, a V2 lanyard, or anything else your heart desires! With these prices, you have no excuse not to.

Happy vapng!

V2 Cigs Adds Two New E-liquid Flavors - Mint Tea and Congress!

V2 Cigs just added two brand new e-liquid flavors to their ever-growing lineup of Platinum E-liquids. Apparently, they got a lot of emails from their loyal e-cigarette customers requesting more flavors be added to their collection of e-liquids. And true to form, V2 Cigs did just that.


V2 Cigs Adds Mint Tea and Congress E-liquid Flavors

The two new e-liquid flavors are Mint Tea and Congress. According to V2 Cigs, the demand for the Mint Tea e-liquid flavor was particularly high. As for the main reason for demand being so great, they commented that "maybe it’s because we so successfully captured the mild, herbal taste of Chinese green tea, infused with our famous mint." I tend to agreed.

As for choosing to produce the Congress flavor as an e-liquid, V2 Cigs stated that they were inspired to do so after many people had requested it in the V2 Cigs Forum.

Wondering what these flavors taste like? Here's a brief description of them:

• Mint Tea - the mild, herbal taste of Chinese green tea, infused with mint
• Congress - the distinctive taste and flavor of great American tobacco

The other Platinum E-liquid flavors offered by V2 Cigs are: V2 Red, V2 Sahara, V2 Menthol and V2 Peppermint.

All V2 Cigs Platinum E-liquid flavors come in the following nicotine strength choices: Zero (no nicotine), Light (0.6%), Medium (1.2%) and Full (1.8%).

Filling Your Blank Cartridges with V2 Cigs Platinum E-liquid

Each V2 Cigs Platinum E-liquid flavor comes in a childproof bottle and contains 25 milliliters (25ml) of the same combination of ingredients that they use in their e-cigarette cartridges. You can fill your blank cartridges by putting about 20 drops of e-liquid in the cartridge to fill it completely. Typically, you can fill around 25 cartridges per bottle.

In case you didn't know, buying e-liquid by the bottle is a great way to save even more money when vaping. It's also a great way to stay stocked up of your favorite flavors!

Why Buy E-liquid by the Bottle?

Buying your e-liquid in a bottle has many benefits and advantages. First of all, if you tend to go through your e-cigarette cartridges somewhat quickly, or if you just want better performance out of your e-cigarette, then e-liquid is an excellent choice. It's also a lot cheaper than buying pre-filled e-cigarette cartridges.

Additionally, you can mix different flavors of e-liquid together and create your own flavors. You can mix and match them as you like, and come up with your own one-of-a-kind flavor combinations!

Mixing different e-liquid flavors together is done by countless vapers all over the world. Bottom line, vapers love to experiment, and they love the new flavor experiences they create by mixing things up a bit. So why not give it a try yourself? You may just end up inventing your very own all-time favorite e-liquid flavor!

E-liquid by the bottle also gives you three key things: more vapor, better taste and a better throat hit (the feeling you get in the back of your throat when you inhale vapor or smoke). These are the three things that vapers are always looking for (and to enhance) in their e-cigarettes. Vapor production, taste/flavor and throat hit. And e-liquid improves all of them.

Overall, e-liquid gives you much more control over the performance of your e-cigarette, while saving you even more money at the same time. The result? A much more enjoyable vaping experience all around.

So check out V2 Cigs today. There's a reason it's our number one favorite. I'm sure it'll become yours as well. ;)

Happy vaping!
