Electronic Cigarette Safety Information

Who shouldn't use an electronic cigarette?

You should avoid using e-cigarettes if pregnant, breast-feeding or suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure, a weak or impaired immune system or have an allergy to nicotine.

 

Is vaping healthier than smoking a tobacco cigarette?

There have been many studies that show how much healthier using e-cigarettes are compared to smoking tobacco cigarettes. They contain a fraction of the chemicals present in tobacco cigarettes.

 

Is there any danger of passive vaping?

No evidence has been produced that shows there are dangers of passive vaping. It is in no way hazardous compared to the smoke produced by tobacco cigarettes.

 

Is E-liquid dangerous?

E-liquid contains nicotine which is classed as a poison in its pure form. If taken in high enough doses, it can kill. The nicotine contained in your e-cigarette will not poison you. However it is important that you keep e-liquids safely locked away and out of the reach of children and pets.

 

Should you get e-liquid on your skin, simply rinse it off with water as soon as possible. If it gets in your mouth, rinse your mouth out thoroughly with water.

 

Lithium Battery Safety

Lithium batteries are capable of providing extremely high currents. A too-rapid discharge of a lithium battery can result in it becoming overheated, ruptured and possibly lead to it exploding.

 

It is extremely important to take care when charging your battery. Do not leave it unattended while being charged. Leaving your battery on charge overnight is dangerous. When the battery is fully charged, depending on the battery type you have the light on it will notify you that it is fully charged, do not continue charging the battery once it has reached its fully charged state.

 

It is also important to use the charger that came with your e-cigarette kit. If using a USB, do not over-tighten the batteries in the charger. Do not charge batteries on a wooden, carpeted or other combustible surfaces.

 

It is important to always use the exact batteries recommended for your e-cigarette.

 

Batteries should be stored safely in specially designed battery containers. If they were, for example, to be stored in your pocket or a bag, there is the chance they may come into contact with other metal items which increases the risk of combustion.

 

Discontinue using a battery if it fails to retain a charge or looks damaged in any way
