Get the most out of your cartomizer & e-cig!

A lot of customers contact us and ask how they can make sure each cartomizer lasts as long as possible. Nuvo’s cartomizers contain twice as much e-liquid as our largest competitor! Follow these tips to maximize your experience with our cartomizers:

 

E-cig Cartomizer care

  • The cartomizer should be “primed” to get a better vaping experience. To do this, inhale four to five times at five to ten second intervals after attaching a new cartomizer to your battery. This allows e-juice to saturate the area around the coil, allowing heat to spread throughout the length of the coil in order to provide a better hit.
  •  

  • Be sure to avoid shaking or dropping cartomizers, as the e-liquid inside could potentially spill out. For the same reason, cartomizers are best stored horizontally. When not in use/ before using a cartomizer, be sure to keep it in a sealed container, as prolonged exposure to air can dull the flavor over time.
  •  

  • Try to replace the rubber cap on the cartomizer when you don’t vape.
  •  

  • Keep the cartomizer away from heat, which can cause evaporation of the e-liquid. Try not to place your e-cig in tight clothing to avoid friction and long exposure to body heat.
  •  

  • To extend the life of the cartomizer, take shorter inhales; less juice is used per puff and it will be consumed more efficiently. Avoid directly exhaling through a cartomizer; make a habit of moving the e-cig away from your lips before exhaling. Repeated exhales through the cartomizer can allow moisture to saturate the battery, making it more likely to malfunction.

 
A quick note on e-juice and safety

Because nicotine is a transdermal chemical, it is readily absorbed by the skin. E-liquid rarely spills from pre-filled cartomizers in quantities that would be harmful, but should a spill occur be careful to avoid skin contact. This is a bigger concern with higher-concentration e-liquids and self-mixed e-liquids (which, generally, should be left to the professionals).

Battery Maintenance

Here you can find an extended guide to battery maintenance. It’s good practice to rotate between two batteries, since the more frequently they’re used the more effective they become. Before first use, it’s recommended that a batter be charged for eight hours. This can increase the battery’s life and efficiency. Also remember to unscrew the cartomizer and the battery during long periods of disuse, and to keep the battery in a clean place away from strong magnets. Again, don’t let the battery die completely before switching them out. As the battery gets low on power, the efficiency of the vaporizing component might decrease as well; which is why stronger batteries tend to give “bigger” hits.

Accessories

Like most electronic devices, remember to keep cords from fraying and breaking by storing them unbent. Always remember the USB adapter and battery when they’re plugged into the computer (particularly laptops) so that they’re not accidentally snapped off and damaged. Vapor caps can enhance a cartomizer’s flavor and prevent vapor from entering the battery, as well as allowing a user to share their e-cigarette more easily.

Camping with NuvoCig

Camping is a great way to undo the stress of the work week and get some rest and relaxation. Camping is an experience many have always enjoyed, as it allows you to take in the great outdoors and experience something new and exciting every time. If you are a smoker, here are a few reasons to switch to a healthier alternative and bring NuvoCig on your next trip:

 

No Fires: Forest fires are something that we’ve all heard about before, but if it happens it can be a serious issue. By smoking traditional cigarettes in the woods, you are always putting yourself at risk for starting a major forest fire. With NuvoCigs, this risk is diminished completely.

 

No Odor: When you go camping showers aren’t always readily available. With traditional cigarettes, this could present an even larger problem than usual. The smell from traditional cigarettes can linger in your hair and clothes for days. With NuvoCIg, none of this is an issue as the only scent the electronic cigarettes emit is the e-liquid flavor you use. Even this aroma is a fleeting one and will not cling to you.

 

Preserving the Scenery: One of the best parts about camping is the view. The beautiful scenery that you are able to take in can be breathtaking. Many people enjoy camping because of the change in scenery from the city life. By using NuvoCig instead of traditional cigarettes you can help keep that scenery beautiful. Cigarette butts will no longer be left throughout the camp site. NuvoCig will not damage the camping site in any way and the view will remain as beautiful as it was when you arrived.

 

In today’s society however, camping can cause some inconveniences. Many of us are accustomed to using and charging our electronic devices on a constant basis. Running out of battery on any device is a hassle and it’s especially inconvenient when you’re out in the woods. Fortunately, NuvoCig offers various ways to charge your e-cig whether there is an accessible outlet or not.

 

The convenient Nuvo Power Bank allows you to charge your NuvoCig without an electrical outlet. Simply charge the Nuvo Power Bank before you take it on the go. Your Power Bank will grant you access to a portable supply of power anytime, anywhere. If you plan on making trips to the car, NuvoCig also offers a 2-in-1 car adapter and USB charger. So what are you waiting for? Grab a tent, a sleeping bag, your NuvoCig and portable chargers and have some fun this weekend!

 

Tutorial: How to Blow Rings with E-Cigarettes

 

Did you know you can blow smoke rings with an e-cigarette? Traditionally, blowing rings involved strategically exhaling cigarette smoke so that it forms in the shape of a ring or an “O” in the air. Fortunately, you do not need to smoke tobacco in order to blow a ring. The water vapor produced by NuvoCigs allows you to reproduce the same effect with an electronic cigarette!

 

Blowing rings is a fun experience for anyone who can do so, and always intriguing for onlookers.  If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to do it, you’re in luck. Follow the steps below and you’ll be a pro in no time!

 

How To Blow Vapor Rings With Electronic Cigarettes:

  1. Start by taking a long drag on the electronic cigarette in order to get a good amount of vapor in your mouth. The thicker the vapor, the better the rings.
  2. Try to keep the vapor in your mouth rather than inhaling it into your lungs.
  3. While holding the vapor in your mouth, shape your lips into a circle as if you are trying to say the word “boo”.
  4. Keep your tongue flat on the bottom of your mouth, out of the way.
  5. Push the vapor out of your mouth by mimicking a cough. The way you use your throat is key in blowing a successful smoke ring.

This skill is something that can be attained and improved over time. Once you master blowing larger and thicker vapor rings, you can actually form a heart shape by simply swiping your finger down the center of the vapor ring you produced.  Remember, practice makes perfect!

What E-Cig Flavors are the Most Appealing?

NuvoCig has one of the largest selections of e-cig flavors in the industry. The flavor comes from the cartomizer, which also contains the liquid nicotine. Users can choose the flavor as well as the nicotine level they prefer.

Some people who transition from traditional cigarettes appreciate the taste of tobacco. NuvoCigs do not contain any actual tobacco, but does offer tobacco flavored cartomizers which come in both traditional tobacco and menthol. These cartomizers are perfect for smokers who enjoy the taste of tobacco and feel that the flavor contributes to their smoking experience.

For those who wish to try sweet and fruity or spicy and savory flavors, NuvoCig has an abundance of options.

Aside from tobacco flavors, NuvoCig also offers: apple, blueberry, brandy, cappuccino, champagne, cherry, cinnamon, coffee, grape, lemon lime, lychee, mango, peach, pear, pina colada, spearmint, strawberry, watermelon, whiskey and vanilla flavored cartomizers.

The fruity flavors smell and taste sweet. They are perfect for individuals who enjoy a crisp, candy-like taste on the palette. The savory flavors such as brandy, cappuccino, vanilla and whiskey, are ideal for those who prefer a stronger taste and like to be more adventurous with their palettes. With the liquor inspired flavors, users can experience what it’s like to drink and smoke at the same time, without having an actual drink or cigarette!

NuvoCig offers over 50 different flavor and nicotine level combinations. With so many options, it can be hard to choose just one flavor. That’s why NuvoCig offers combination packs. And because cartomizers are replaceable, you don’t even have to finish one cartomizer before you start another one. You can rotate flavors all day if you feel like it! Have a cappuccino flavor in the morning, a fruit flavor after dinner, and a whiskey flavor when you’re out on the town! The options are endless.

Electronic Cigarettes Boost Quitting Success

Studies have shown that smokers who switch from standard cigarettes to electronic cigarettes have a higher success rate of quitting than those who use nicotine patches or gum to quit. This can be attributed to the fact that while all three products contain nicotine, only e-cigarettes enable users to go through the actual motions of smoking. Since users are puffing what looks like a cigarette, they feel as if they are actually smoking, whereas the gum and the patch deliver nicotine into the bloodstream but fail to cater to the physical habit of putting a cigarette to the lips and puffing.

With NuvoCigs, users can still physically smoke and get the amount of nicotine their bodies are used to. Nicotine is the addictive substance in cigarettes that makes them so hard to quit, and it is the substance your body craves after having smoked for an extended amount of time. Each cigarette contains a fixed amount of nicotine, approximately 9mgs. Users inhale the same amount of nicotine each time they smoke a cigarette from start to finish. Some smokers often don’t finish the entire cigarette, which causes them to run out sooner and replace their packs more often. Other smokers may not want to finish the whole cigarette but see it as a waste so they finish it, which causes them to inhale more tar and do more harm to their lungs. Still worse are chain smokers, who don’t feel one cigarette is enough. They may end up smoking two or more cigarettes in a row, inhaling a substantial amount of tar and toxins.

The tars and toxins in traditional cigarettes are released when burning tobacco is inhaled. NuvoCig is different because they do not use any tobacco. Users inhale liquid nicotine and they can choose the amount of nicotine they intake. NuvoCig offers five different cartomizer strengths, with varying levels of nicotine. With this method, smokers can start with a higher level of nicotine and gradually decrease their intake of nicotine. The nicotine is carried into the lungs via water vapor as opposed to tar and smoke, making inhalation safer. Also, e-cigs allow the user to take as many or as few puffs as they wish at any given moment. This spreads out the amount of puffs users take because there is no pressure to finish before the e-cig burns out. Users can pace themselves which may also decrease their frequency of puffs when compared to regular cigarettes.

Smokers can also use NuvoCig in conjunction with regular cigarettes if they feel they must wean themselves off slowly and adjust to the transition. With this method, users can still fluctuate between the regular cigarettes they’re used to, and e-cigs, the healthier alternative. This makes it easier for smokers to quit because they don’t feel as if they are doing it cold-turkey or cutting down too much too soon. Whether you are a smoker who wants to quit, or simply wants to transition to a healthier alternative, NuvoCigs could be your answer. Take the first step with one of NuvoCig’s many starter kits.

Father’s Day & Electronic Cigarettes

With Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what to get for the father figure in your life. E-cigs make fantastic gifts because they’re both thoughtful and functional. Unlike cigarettes, they are made without tar, tobacco or harmful additives. The secondhand smoke is harmless and inoffensive to most people. E-cigs produce a scent reflective of whatever flavored cartomizer the smoker is using. The scent does not linger on the breath or clothing and most people find it to be quite pleasant.

Electronic cigarettes are especially great for fathers or grandfathers who are often around small children. The harmless vapor makes it possible to vape in their presence without risking their health. It also makes it so that precious family time can be taken advantage of every second. There is no longer any need to leave the dinner table for a cigarette break. You can smoke your e-cig inside!

Electronic cigarettes are also great for older gentlemen with limited mobility. Cigarette breaks are difficult when getting up and moving around is too tiring. Ecigs make it so that the elderly man in your life can relax while getting his nicotine fix. And you can rest assured that you’re gifting him with a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes.

This Father’s Day, give your father the gift of a safer, healthier smoking experience.

Electronic Cigarettes at the Airport

Regulation of electronic cigarettes is still in the works so it can be difficult to know where you shouldn’t vape, especially when traveling. Airports are highly guarded and rules are strict. Can you take your e-cigarette on a flight? Can you smoke it in the terminal? Due to the lack of federal regulation on e-cigs, airports are divided on the subject of allowing their use. The only rule set in stone is that they are banned from use on flights. Some airports treat e-cigs like traditional cigarettes and ban their use other than in a designated smoking room. As of now, the following airports allow you to smoke e-cigs in the airport:

  • Charlotte Douglas International Airport
  • Dulles International Airport
  • McCarren International Airport
  • Miami International Airport
  • Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport
  • Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport
  • Ronald Reagan International Airport
  • Tampa International Airport

If you are in one of those airports, feel free to vape in the terminal! If you are not, don’t fret. Airports do change their rules. Some airports may allow e-cig smoking in certain terminals. If you’re not sure, ask an authority. It’s always better to be cautious at an airport. In the same token, the above listed airports’ rules are also subject to change so you should always double check before vaping.

Whether your airport allows vaping in the open or only in the smoking room, electronic cigarettes are still a better option than cigarettes. If you must sit through a long flight, the last thing you want is to smell like cigarettes. You’re 10,000 ft above ground. The smell has nowhere to escape to. It will just stay in your clothes and surround you and your neighbor. Be a good sport, smoke e-cigs instead and smell like yourself, not an ashtray.

Smoking a Cigar vs. an E-Cigar

Cigars are a classic, masculine and a relaxing treat. So, why don’t we see more people smoking them more often? The answer is simple. They’re a little too high maintenance for everyday enjoyment. A good cigar needs to be rolled well, without lumps or tears in the casing. It needs to be lit the right way the first time so as to ensure an even burn. It needs to be puffed at a consistent rate so that it doesn’t burn too fast or burn out. A typical cigar could burn anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour, and should be put out once it gets to be about two inches.

While cigars are enjoyable, people don’t always want to go through the nuisance. For those people, there’s the e-cigar. The e-cigar looks and tastes like a regular cigar, with added convenience. With the e-cigar, you simply puff to savor the taste. There is no lighting necessary. Your inhalation activates the vapor. With e-cigars, you can puff when and where you want for as long or little as you want. Traditional cigars will go stale quickly once they burn out and relighting them ruins their taste.

E-cigars are reusable and disposable. You don’t have to light an entire cigar and puff it a handful of times then throw it away and waste it. E-cigars have a two year shelf life and provide roughly 1,800 puffs! Lastly, the e-cigar does not come with the smell of cold tobacco. You can puff in your home without having to change the upholsteries afterwards. Cigars will always be a classic but for the times when you just want that rich flavor without the fuss, e-cigars are your answer.

Benefits of Using E-Cigars

E-cigars have become increasingly popular for a number of reasons.

Cost-effective. Cigar prices vary depending on the quality of the tobacco and where you’re purchasing them. The really cheap ones can run under $10 but they also taste cheap. The more expensive ones can go over $70. While it’s wonderful to treat ourselves occasionally, spending a chunk of money on one cigar can feel a little indulgent at times. This is where e-cigars come in. They’re a perfect solution for the individual who perhaps just wants a few cigar puffs without having to spend the money on a regular cigar that might not get finished.

Disposable and reusable. Because e-cigars are reusable, you can just have five puffs and save the rest for later or another day. Each e-cigar has up to 1,800 puffs and only runs you $30. When you’re all out of puffs you can just throw your e-cigar away and get another one.

No hassle. Cigars are known for being complex. They must be clipped precisely and lit correctly in order to achieve an even burn. Certain lighters transfer the taste of gas to the cigar which ruins the smoking experience. With e-cigars, you don’t have to inspect the wrapper for any tears or lumps. You don’t have to be anxious that you might clip it wrong or burn it wrong. Best of all, the smoking experience is entirely in your control. There is no pressure to finish it just because you feel like you’re wasting it if you don’t smoke the whole thing. Simply puff at your e-cigar to activate it and put it down when you don’t feel like smoking anymore.

No odor. Because e-cigars are not made with tobacco or harmful additives, there is no lingering smell associated with them. Traditional cigars can quickly envelop a room and be offensive to others around. E-cigars allow you to stay classy while still being considerate. Nothing beats that.

Design. E-cigars are designed to look like real cigars. The beautiful tawny brown with the gold band around the top are a mainstay characteristic of cigars. Those details are in e-cigars too and because they’re made out of metal and not paper, you get that added sheen.

While nothing beats the experience of smoking a traditional cigar, there’s a time and a place and they don’t come up that often. Get an e-cigar for the times when you just want to kick back, relax and have a couple of puffs.
