What is an e-cigarette?
An electronic cigarette, e-cigarette, or e-cig, is a device which vaporizes a liquid solution -- usually containing nicotine -- into a vapor which is then inhaled in the same way you would smoke a tobacco cigarette.
How do e-cigs work?
E-cigs contain a liquid, called e-liquid or e-juice, which is either propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin, or a mix of the two. Propylene glycol is recognized as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. It is used in food, tobacco, pharmaceutical, and beauty products.
Flavorings and nicotine are also components of this e-liquid. A heating element, or atomizer, contained in the device vaporizes the e-liquid. A battery powers the atomizer. The battery is screwed onto the cartridge which contains the e-liquid. The E-liquid is contained in a tank tip, or in some models, a cartridge with a wick. The cartridge of some models contains a fibrous filler material which absorbs the e-liquid.
The user fills the cartridge or tank with the e-liquid of their choice. Varying levels of nicotine concentrations are available – usually in zero, 6 mg, 8mg, 12mg, 18 mg, and 24mg solution. Most moderate smokers can use a 12mg or 18mg solution to satisfy their nicotine craving, and cut back from there. A 24 mg solution is considered very strong. Only a very few users would use such a high level of nicotine concentration.
What are the different types of e-cigs?
Some e-cigs are disposable. While convenient, these models are not as cost effective as the refillable models. The disposable models are usually facsimiles of tobacco cigarettes. The refillable models are also available in styles which look similar to tobacco cigarettes. The look of the e-cig will vary – coming in various colors, styles, and sizes. Some e-cigs are even customized to the vapers specifications.
Because there is such a huge variety of e-cigs and e-juice on the market, here are some questions you should be asking:
Are all batteries created equal?
The batteries Lizard Juice sells are smaller, but better. Our third generation 650 batteries can last two days – outlasting the competitors' 1100 batteries which are actually bigger.
The 808 battery which comes in Blu’s e-cigs and other similar devices usually lasts only a few hours. These 808 batteries are the ones you will find in most cigarette look-alike models.
A word about our clearomizers. . .
Lizard Juice’s clearomizers are superior to most on the market. The tank is thicker, and there are more threads in the screw piece. This is important in preventing leakage of the e-juice.
Why is Lizard Juice’s e-juice better?
We sell premium e-juice produced in quality-controlled, lab conditions. We pride ourselves in offering the best flavor blends which we have developed, tried, and tested ourselves. Unless we love vaping it, we aren’t going to offer it to our customers.
Our philosophy is “excellence” pure and simple.
You might find cheaper e-cigs and e-juice on the market, but you will not find any better than Lizard Juice. A lot of thought and planning has gone into offering our customers the best quality, easiest to use, and most fun to vape e-cigs and e-juice.
We aren’t going to clutter our product line with a lot of generic, cheaply made products to create the illusion of a wide variety of choices. The fact is, there are only a few devices that are genuinely user-friendly and well made. Lizard Juice’s product development team have sorted through the huge variety of e-cigs. What we sell is what we know are the best e-cigs and e-juices to get you vaping, and keep you coming back.
Our customer service is unparalleled. If our customers have any difficulty whatsoever with anything we sell, we will replace the item, or give the customer instruction on how to use the e-cigs properly to avoid any issues they might encounter in using our product – which will be minimal given the quality of our e-cigs. But we know that certain issues can and will crop up from time to time. If you don’t like it, we will make it right!
