Are People Really Dying From Vaping?

Although the topic has died down after reaching a crescendo in the fall of 2019, reports are still trickling in of people who've contracted a lung illness, and of some who've even died, as a result of vaping. Not only is this rightly terrifying, it begs the question: if vaping has been around for more than a decade, why is it only now that we're getting all of these reports about severe lung disease and sudden death?

The answer is actually fairly simple, though unfortunately it's not one that's often accurately reported by major media sources...

Vape Pods Banned? What Do I Do?

If you haven't heard by now, earlier this month the federal Department of Health and Human Services announced a nationwide ban on virtually all pre-filled vape pods. The ban takes effect February 1, and will likely affect millions of users of closed-system vapor devices.

If that includes you, it's important to understand the changes coming to the market and plan now to be prepared for what comes next...

Does Vape Juice Have Calories?

Is there a date to ban flavored e-liquid?

SMOK TF2019 Sub-Ohm Tank Review
Smok probably deserves credit for introducing the world to sub-ohm clearomizers as we know them today. When the TFV-4, first in the TFV series, came out back in 2015, it shattered the vaping community's notions about what was possible with a disposable-coil tank. The flavor and vapor production were miles ahead of anything else on the market at that time, offering for the first time a no-fuss vape that could compete with hand-built coils. While they've continued to push the envelope with the TFV-8 and TFV-12 models, competitors have also stepped up.
SMOK Trinity 30W Alpha VV Mod Review
Dedicated vapers are probably familiar by now with the Orion series of pod mods from Lost Vape. Even if you've never vaped one, you know they ushered in a new era of high-performance, adjustable power pod mods that have spawned countless imitations.
Vape News In Brief: July 18th, 2019 Edition
Seattle's mayor who, following the blanket vaping ban in San Francisco, says her city should follow suit. Predictably, there's already a backlash from Seattle vape shop owners, who point out the hypocrisy in attacking vaping while doing nothing to rein in smoking, a far deadlier practice.
VooPoo DRAG NANO Pod System Review
Continuing the trend of pod systems getting ever smaller, the DRAG NANO Pod System by Voopoo takes a big step down (up?) in terms of pushing portability.  We get it: over the last year we've been buried under an avalanche of new pod systems. The big question is: how does this match up? As with many devices, it really depends on what you’re looking for, but right off the bat, this is aimed at vapers that are looking for tighter Mouth-to-Lung vapes, salt nic compatible devices, and something that excels as an on-the-go device.
iJoy MERCURY 12W AIO Pod System Review

Experienced vapers will be familiar with iJoy, a manufacturer known for innovative products ranging from smaller pod systems like the IVPC to more advanced mod systems like the Diamond Mini or Shogun.

Vape News In Brief: June 19th, 2019 Edition
The FDA last week issued new guidelines in an attempt to help e-cig suppliers comply with existing law. We'll note here that while no vapor products are officially banned in the US, the number of products that legally exist is also zero, leaving manufacturers in a perpetual state of limbo.
Sense Orbit TF Pod System Review

The latest brand to challenge the Orion is Sense. Their Orbit TF Pod System is a companion to the base Orbit, which behaves more like a traditional pod and shares some key components. For this review, we’ll focus on the Orbit TF, because it adds extra features that we think make it a standout new offering. Let’s dive in!

SMOK Novo Pre-Filled Pods Review

When it comes to smaller pod systems, the Smok Novo Pod Mod is high on the list as one of the most accessible devices to use. It’s arguably an easier-to-use device than similar pod systems such as Aspire’s Breeze 2 or Smok’s Infinex because it relies on pre-filled pods that you can pick up and snap into place whenever your juice runs out.

Vape News In Brief: June 10th, 2019 Edition

We've long saluted efforts in Great Britain to move people away from smoking along with the use of vapor products as a helpful transition. We've recently learned that food banks are giving away e-cigarettes to smokers that frequent them, and we couldn't approve more. The English estimate that the average Briton smoker could save 70 pounds (about $90) every week by switching. That's a significant addition to a weekly food budget that could free low-income people from the need to visit food banks, benefits of vaping over smoking to one's health aside.

Fruit Monster E-Liquid Review
One of our favorite high-end liquid suppliers, Jam Monster E-Liquid, is back at it with a line of jamtastic fruity blends, the Fruit Monster.

Vape News In Brief: May 22nd, 2019 Edition
Colorado, which is looking to impose a 62 percent tax on the wholesale price of vapor products. This is significantly higher than the 40 percent Pennsylvania imposed (and later overturned) a couple years ago, though even that measure was enough to cripple the local vapor industry. Because it's coupled with a less-significant tax hike on tobacco products (22 percent), vapor advocates will have a hard time arguing to the public against this one. The measure cleared the state legislature and can no be put before voters.
Vape Snapshot: Vo Tech Zeal Pod System

Vape Snapshot: Frenzy Pod System by GeekVape
These days, it seems pretty everyone is all-in on the entry-level pod mod trend. Even the venerable elder statesman of advanced vaping, KangerTech, has finally thrown their hat into the ring (check out our review of their new Surf pod). That's all well and good, but where does that leave advanced vapers who demand more power, better draws, and stronger cloud production from their device?

Vape News In Brief: May 3rd, 2019 Edition
Things keep looking up in India, where the nation's trade ministry says there's no legal basis for banning the import of vapor products.

Vape News In Brief: April 16th, 2019 Edition
This study, that reports 45% of Americans (mistakenly) believe vaping is as harmful as smoking. Add in another 10% who believe vaping is actually worse than smoking, and more than half of the country's adult population currently fails to recognize the true risk associated with smoking.

And as the vapor industry dedicates more and more resources toward improving these tiny devices, we're starting to see pod mods with richer, more compelling sets of features.

More fallout from the surprise resignation of FDA czar Scott Gottlieb, who leaves office at the end of the month.

Altria Comments On Flavor Ban

Altria Group, the parent company of Big Tobacco brands including Marlboro and Virginia Slim, made a bold move in a presentation to shareholders that, if heeded, could alter the face of the vaping world as we know it. In late February, Altria Group's Chairman and CEO Howard Willard trekked to Boca Raton, Florida to speak to investors at the Consumer Analyst Group of New York Conference on his company's holdings, which include the aforementioned tobacco brands and a 35 percent stake in cigalike upstart Juul, among others.

Vape News In Brief: March 6th, 2019 Edition
The anti-tax conservative think tank Heartland Institute, which is speaking out against new vapor taxes being proposed in Arkansas. That much isn't surprising, but the fact that the Institute isn't also vociferously opposing complementary taxes on combustible tobacco products is a bit of an eye-raiser. Not only that, they've apparently launched a podcast in support of vaping. The timing is interesting, as the group has in the past received major funding from Philip Morris, whose American spinoff Altria recently made a heavy investment in the Juul cigalike.
