FAQ

What’s an E Cig or Electronic Cigarette?

 An Electronic Cigarette is a safer healthier substitute for regular cigarettes. It mimics tobacco smoking by creating an inhaled vapor that gives the same physical sensation, appearance and flavor of inhaling tobacco smoke, but without the odor and harmful chemicals.

How do I use an E Cigarette?

First you charge the battery, screw on the cartridge, cartomizer or Clearomizer (you fill these with your choice of E Liquid).  Then smoke as you would a cigarette, if you have an automatic.  If you have a manual battery, you just have to press the button while inhaling.  See More about E Cigarette Auto vs. Manual Batteries

Do I need to charge my E-Cigarette?

If you purchase a disposable E Cigarette, then these do not need to be charged.  Keep in mind that with a disposable, you will spend more money as these are a one time use only.  They last approximately the same as a pack of cigarettes.

If you purchased a Rechargeable E Cig then yes, you charge these and they last approximately the same as 1 pack of cigarettes per charge.  Then recharge it and it’s ready to be used again.  I like having 2 batteries so one is always charged and ready while the other is being recharged.

How do I recharge my Electronic Cigarette?

 Unscrew the battery from the Cartomizer and screw it into the USB Charger.  If you purchased the wall unit, plug the USB charger into that and plug into the wall.  Read your directions as some Ecigs will blink while charging and others turn a different color once charged.  With the Volt by Smokeless Image, the LED will remain on while charging and turns off when fully charged.  Visit SmokelessImage.com for demo videos.

When do the batteries need to be replaced?

 This depends on usage and how you maintain your E Cigarette.  When you need to replace your battery, you’ll notice that the charge isn’t lasting as long as it used to.  Generally, the batteries last 2-4 months.  

 What is E Liquid?

 E liquid is what’s used to refill the Cartomizers or Clearomizer.  This is for Chargeable Ecigs only, not disposable.  E liquids work for all E-Cigs and come in many different flavors and strengths.   They’re also available in different sizes depending on the brand and reseller, usually 10ml and 30ml bottles.  Watch how to refill your Cartomizer here.

 What is E liquid made from?

 E liquid contains nicotine, propylene glycol (a water-based ingredient found in many health products, medicines, foods and drinks), as well as common natural and artificial flavorings. 

What mg Level of Nicotine should I buy?

That’s a matter of personal taste and what you’re smoking now.  E Liquids come in 0, 9, 12, 18 and 24mg nicotine levels and are classed as low, medium and high.   If you’re smoking a very low nicotine cigarette, you might want to get the lower nicotine level.  The 0mg E liquid has no nicotine so you can order a lower mg as you get used to it and wean yourself off nicotine completely without the side effects.

How long does a 10ml bottle last?

 It is equivalent to about 200 cigarettes and is significantly cheaper than cigarettes.

How is it healthier?

 Electronic Cigarettes have a vapor mist that is odorless and has no tar, no tobacco, no carbon monoxide and no ash. It delivers the same amount of nicotine without all the harmful chemicals.
