What Is An Electronic Cigarette?

An electronic cigarette, sometimes referred to as an e-cigarette or even e-cig, is an electrical device that imitates a traditional cigarette and provides an alternative way to smoke. They are recommended for people who wanted to save money, improve their health, or as a smoking cessation product. 

How Does It work?

When the button on the battery is pushed it activates an atomiser which then heats up the e-liquid that is in the cartridge. The atomiser is responsible for producing a vapour that is then inhaled.

How Is It Powered?

E-cigarettes are powered by a rechargeable lithium battery. At Aspire eCig UK, we sell these batteries, as well as everything you would need to charge them. 

How Long Do Batteries Take To Charge?

For the initial charge it is recommended to charge for at least 3 hours and then after that the battery should charge fully with 1-2 hours. This can vary between models, and will usually say on the description.

How Long Do Atomisers And Batteries Last?

We recommend you change atomisers/clearomisers every 7 days.  Atomisers can last anywhere between 7 and 90 days. 
Batteries can last anywhere between 30 and 120 days.

Do I Need To Change The Cartridges?

The cartridges can be used again and again by topping up with e-liquid, although we recommend that you change your cartridge at least once a week.

Do Electronic Cigarettes Save You Money?

Yes, without a doubt! Using an electronic cigarette can save you up to 80% of the cost of smoking traditional cigarettes.

Where Can I Use My Electronic Cigarette?

As the laws begin to change, you will find that there are a few limitations being imposed on the smoking of e-cigarettes in public places. Although one of their many benefits is that they are legal for use indoors, some establishments have decided that the vapour looks too real to allow in their place of business. However, more often than not you can use them throughout the country - it might just be polite to check in cases of doubt first.
