Mainstream media has transformed from being a platform that brings unbiased news to their audience to a bubble that keeps feeding their audience only what they want to hear in a loop. The more media outlets out there, the more such bubbles in which people thrive. People have stopped looking for facts and news. Instead, they now rely on their favourite news anchors or TV show hosts to give them their version, their opinion, and their take on the facts. One such industry that has been pummeled by the mainstream media is the vaping industry.
Whether it is because of the word ‘cigarette’ in e-cigarette, the negative perception of nicotine, or something else, the public has a perceptible negative view of the e-cigarettes. Mainstream media and government officials, in their attempts to appease to their audience’s sensibilities, no matter how unfounded they are in facts, only promote that negative view and have been hounding the vaping industry for decades. It’s time to disp

What Are Mechanical Mods?
A mechanical mod is a vaping device with no digital controls, no integrated circuit and no internal electronics of any kind. The only control on a mechanical mod is a fire button that completes a circuit and causes the tank or atomiser to activate. Mechanical mods come in both tube and box shapes. Reg
Nicotine is a stimulant that is in desperate need of a PR agent. Call it the lack of knowledge or the need for a buzzword by the media, nicotine has received an intense dose of bad press since the 1960s. At one point, it was thought to cause cancer, which, by the way, is 100% myth. It does not cause any cardiovascular diseases either. Yet, the negativity towards nicotine is real and it is deeply rooted in the public psyche. So, it’s no wonder that any product that contains nicotine in any concentration gets a bad rep too. So, is nicotine really so bad for you? Let’s get to know the infamous nicotine better and the effects it has on your body.
What is nicotine?
Nicotine is an alkaloid, and its chemical structure is similar to that of cocaine and caffeine. It is found abundantly in nature. In fact, trace amounts of nicotine are found even in eggplants, potatoes, and tomatoes.
Vaping is more than just a trend. It is a radically novel solution for ex-smokers to quit smoking. It is a passion for hobbyists. It is even a fidget toy for people who like to keep their hands and mouths busy. Clearly, vaping means different things to different groups of people. Since it means so much to so many, vaping has grown out of its nascent stage as a sensation and become an entire industry in itself. As with any industry, it has its own set of jargons, technical terms, and terminology. We have compiled an extensive glossary of vaping terminology to help vapers like you.
306 – It is a type of disposable atomizer that is similar in function to a 510 atomizer, but has significantly lower resistance and produces larger quantities of vapor. It uses the same thread as a 510.
A decade ago, it was very easy to find credible information on anything related to vaping. The industry was in its nascent stage and it was easy to find relevant scientific information from credible sources. As the e-cigarette smoking phenomenon caught on, more businesses entered this industry. This was followed by the entry of cheap manufacturers into the market, who have been deliberately spreading misinformation about their products among the vapers in a bid to push their own substandard products. Therefore, it has become excruciatingly difficult to find credible and reliable information. That’s why, we bring you the top most reputed, and credible sources of information on anything related to vaping.

When it comes to vaping, a quick Google search will throw up a wealth of information at you. But, there is a good chance that a major chunk of it is just misinformation. This leads to a lot of confusion. Which sources can you rely on?
Cheap brands and manufacturers seek to spread a lot of fake facts about their substandard products in order to sell them. Then there are individual bloggers who dish out biased reviews to generate income out of affiliate marketing. Not to mention the countless websites that publish factually incorrect information all the time. Result? E-cigarettes explode all the time. E-juices containing dangerous chemicals cause severe damage to the health of the users.
This puts into perspective the need for a reliable and dependable source that gives you well-researched information that you can trust. And, who better than a reputed retailer and expert of e-cigarettes, mods, and e-juice, EasyPuff™, to bring you all of this information!
The e-cigarettes market is currently a highly unregulated market. In other words, neither the government nor the industry’s biggest players have come up with an industry-wide set of standards and compliances to follow. This means that each manufacturer is using their own specifications in designing and manufacturing the e-cigarettes. Then there are the mods, where the users get a very high degree of freedom to customize their devices. Naturally, incompatibility and unintended uses (use of parts for purposes other than what the manufacturer designed them for) of parts is a common phenomenon in this area. Because of this, either the parts just give away, or in worse cases, batteries explode. To avoid such instances, users should give e-cigarette safety their earnest attention.
Don’t take e-cigarette safety lightly. E-cig batteries are exploding all the time, and they are easily avoidable. Know where to buy, how to use, and what not to do. Here are some tips for you.
In a major boost to the phenomenon of vaping and to the relief of the growing number of vapers in the country, the Ministry of Health has decided to promote the adoption of e-cigarettes among smokers as a means to help them quit smoking. This is a huge departure from the ill-conceived and a scientifically unsubstantiated ban on nicotine e-juices that existed not so long ago. Clearly, the ministry has realized its faux pas and is making the much-needed amends to their Smokefree 2025 strategy.
So, what prompted the ministry to take such a 180-degree turn on its stance?
Well, a lot of factors. The ban itself faced severe criticism both domestically and internationally for being nearsighted and not based on solid data. It was imposed considering the public perception of nicotine products, rather than taking into account hard facts. Making things worse, the Ministry of Health has failed spectacularly in curbing the menace of smoking. The number of smokers in the country stands
A lot of people continue to have only a vague or no idea about e-cigarettes. Making matters worse, the people responsible for spreading awareness about alternatives to smoking or aids that help smokers quit their habit, do not always do a good job. This results in a warped preconception about e-cigarettes, as a result of which many smokers don’t get to take the advantage of e-cigarettes. So, here is a brief guide about e-cigarettes and how they work. The Basics An e-cigarette, or a vape as it is more commonly known as, creates thick clouds of vapours out of e-liquids, which are then inhaled by the user. The inhaling action gives the ex-smokers something to do with their mouth and hands, which is often the primary reason for them to smoke in the first place. Also, a number of e-liquids come with a varying concentration of nicotine content, which provides them their daily nicotine fix. With time, e-cigarette users learn to use e-liquids with less and less nicotine, until they eventually n
